In 2007, a seasoned captain and designer risked everything to establish the Maori Yacht shipyard in the medieval bay of Olbia. Inspired by the relentless strength, courage and determination of the earliest warriors of the sea, our founder sought to create yachts that are a force to be reckoned with. The first model, the groundbreaking 50ft gold, left a remarkable stamp in the market embodying the brand’s unwavering ability to outmaneuvre and outperform the competition in both performance and design.
The team grew with the addition of Marco Ciampa, who remains at the design helm. Under his stewardship came the dawn of what the brand calls “The 54ft Era” as it entered its 10th year of activity. During this time, Maori Yacht garnered clients from all four corners of the world and expanded its operations in Monaco and Miami under its first President, who joined in 2020.
The brand now continues its relentless devotion to the ultimate experience on the sea. Always aware of the ocean and the planet, innovation is constant, with the team exploring alternative methods of production and energy used to create efficiencies in performance and reduce the impact on the environment. From its humble beginnings in Sardinia, Maori’s future already exhibits global promise.
The ocean requires understanding, not command. Our forefathers realised this centuries ago in their quest to discover new worlds and as its purpose evolved, the boat has become more than a means of transport and discovery. It has become a vehicle for adventure and shared experience which is what Maori Yacht seeks to embody.
This is a journey — one of evolution that pushes the boundaries of the superyacht industry. Our yachts are unparalleled, unmistakably striking ocean warriors built to deliver the ultimate experience on the sea. They do so by building connections. Connections to the performance of the yacht, to the elements, and ultimately, to the people around you.
Using cutting-edge technology, we adhere to the same principles found in automotive design and architecture whilst collaborating with the best product suppliers to deliver industry-leading products. Our look is unequivocal with a bold, modern and striking silhouette. Every time you look, you find a new element that’s been carefully considered, following the minimalistic and contemporary convention.
We respect the elements that surround our yachts and this awareness is infused into their design to build a strong connection with the sea and all it bestows. Our distinguishable diamond-shaped hulls show our dedication to providing a secure and stable ride, cutting deeply into oncoming waves that may disrupt the experience.
