Fast, comfortable, spacious, simple, safe and stylish – this is what Maori Yachts has to say about its 50ft tender and we’re not going to disagree. Wally-esque but without the high Wally price tag, this Italian stallion is simply bellissima.
Measuring up at 14.5 metres, the Maori 50 has very clean angular lines and a masculine physique that sets it apart from the tender pack. Fully customisable both inside and out, Maori likes to indulge its customers’ quirks and fancies, the 50 not only looks good but she also packs a mighty kick when it comes to power. Whether you opt for surface drives or water jets, petrol or diesel engines from 350hp to 600hp, the performance will be impressive and she’ll also handle shallow water with ease – ideal for dropping off the guests for that beach club lunch.
Designed by Oberdan Chimenti, is a man who sailed the oceans as a captain for more than 20 years before finally realising his dream and setting up Maori, the 50 has superb build quality as the Company cares more about its standards than it does about huge quantities. Their philosophy is that each yacht from its Italian shipyards must be improved upon so the next is even better.
Brokers St James Yachts have a 2010 Maori 50 for sale priced at a handsome 665,000 euros. Equipped with twin Cummins 350hp diesel engines and stern drive, she is slicked in dark metallic DuPont paint and has a complete custom wraparound fender to protect from bumps.
