|150' (46 m) Diesel Electric 1993 "Maupiti"|
| MAUPITI was conceived by a family whose entire life has been connected to yachting and whose experience is unique.
Their passion for discovering unspoiled territories, for diving and for flying was the foundation for the whole development process of such an extraordinary vessel.
MAUPITI is not a yacht in its traditional meaning, it is the epitome of what a vessel should be to allow its Owners to go around the world, and we mean anywhere in the navigable world, in safety and in comfort; to feel at home and yet be able to travel and to communicate with no limits; to fly safely and efficiently and be able to ferry to and from the vessel or scout the best destination in a 300 mile range from the vessel.
We like to think of MAUPITI as the ultimate fun machine, where fun is seeing and experiencing emotions and adventures that very few other fortunate people in the world will ever be able to. The attention paid to the helicopter operation, from the hull design to the communication system, is still unmatched today in the world of yachting. The care paid to ensure that all marine operations, including launching and retrieving the dinghies, are safe in all weather conditions; the possibility to cruise at any speed without affecting the propulsion system; the redundancy and the possibility to carry on normal maintenance at sea without using shipyard facilities; all of these are features that set MAUPITI apart.
The interior designer is a New Yorker, Peter Marino, who has carefully followed the Owner's direction in producing a d้cor that would enhance the sense of being at sea, using natural light and real sceneries. The result, together with the total absence of noise and vibration and the seaworthiness of the vessel, is an amazing positive and relaxing feeling that permeates MAUPITI.
None of the elements of preposterous luxury that so often transform a yacht into a floating palace are here present; innovation, technology blended with tradition and taste are the signatures of this unique vessel, where experience, knowledge, culture and passion for the sea and the nature make the statement of wealth and accomplishment.
MAUPITI, for her sole owners, has logged about 250,000 nautical miles since built; she has crossed all oceans and visited a few dozen countries, from Scandinavia to Indonesia, from Antarctica to Brazil. Recently returned to the Mediterranean she has gone through a deep overhauling which included the full main engines rebuilding as well as the Lloyds 10 years survey and the hull and topsides paint.
The name MAUPITI, and the helicopter are not included in the sale. All the Owner's artwork and personal items are excluded from the sale.
