Mayla introduces GT, its all-carbon-fiber superboat

 

Yacht company Mayla unveils its all-carbon-fiber superboat GT, a sea cruiser featuring a sharply pointed V monohull. The design emerges as a modern tribute to the speed boats of the ’70s and ’80s, amplified by its refined-looking exterior. Its deep-V monohull comes with twin transversal steps, or raised platforms, and patented Petestep deflectors that the company claims can optimize the hydrodynamic efficiency of the carbon-fiber superboat. These transversal steps pocket bubbles of air under the hull so that Mayla GT can cruise at higher top speeds for the same power. Mayla debuted GT during the Düsseldorf International Boat Show between January 20th and 28th, 2024.

Design inspired by racing powerboats

 

Mayla’s design for its carbon-fiber superboat GT regards racing powerboats rather than distance cruisers. The style then springs as a long water vehicle with stark outlines for the exterior and minimal furnishings for the interior as the cabin paves the way for opulent-leaning interior design. The Petestep deflectors of the carbon-fiber superboat – developed by the Swedish engineering office Petestep – redirect the spray under the hull of Mayla GT so it can generate additional lift, an increase in fuel efficiency, and a smoother and quieter ride even at high speeds. Given that its body is made entirely of carbon fiber, the superboat is light and robust, and Mayla says that it follows the standards of the automotive industry with millimeter-level precision.

Inside mayla’s carbon-fiber superboat GT

 

Stepping inside the cabin, Mayla GT can accommodate up to eight people. It comes with a luxury cabin where a double bed is fitted, Alcantara textile skin for the furniture, a wardrobe, a vanity area, a couple of TV screens, and a premium audio system. The carbon-fiber superboat features an open cockpit area too, where sliding sun loungers await the guests for a breather. Shock-absorbing helm seats are also installed to give the guests a pleasant ride amidst the waves, and for those who are thinking of hosting a party, the cockpit area is where the wet bar, barbecue, foldaway table, and ample storage can be found. Walking towards the aft, the spacious storage with an electric transom door can both keep a jet ski for an extra water activity and be converted into a beach club platform.

If nighttime sailing is what the passengers are looking for, the underwater light system can keep Mayla GT illuminated in the dark in the middle of the sea. Its premium sound system in the large open cockpit area can also offer the owner various entertainment possibilities to place from a mini-outdoor cinema to a DJ table. Air conditioning can be installed too as an extra to fend off the heat if cruising during warm seasons along with the option to equip it with Seakeeper Ride vessel attitude control system that can prevent the carbon-fiber superboat from underway pitching and rolling. As of publishing the story, Mayla is expected to host sea trials with the carbon-fiber superboat GT starting in Spring 2024.
