According to Heesen, the overall exterior profile designed by Clifford Denn embodies Heesen’s sporty design philosophy and incorporates lines reminiscent of classic cars. Subtle details such as grills on the main deck aft fashion plates contribute to the completely unique aesthetic of Maia’s design. Adding to the powerful and sporty Heesen DNA is a traditional pelican bow with a reverse sheer line that integrates into the overall design created by Clifford Denn.

There are a plethora of outdoor living areas available including 250 square meters of deck space with more than 68 square meters of sundeck available over three levels.  The timeless exterior lines are integrated into Reymond Langton’s “beautiful, classic and homely” interior design that succeeds at setting an elegant tone as a private superyacht while also being able to successfully accommodate charter guests.

The layout provides luxurious accommodations for 10 guests across 5 staterooms including a forward facing master suite on the main deck plus 3 double staterooms and 1 twin room below. There are 5 additional staterooms to accommodate a crew of up to 10.

As a steel hulled full displacement yacht Maia is powered by twin 1,000 KW MTU engines and reaches a top speed of 15 knots with a cruising speed of 12 knots. At cruising speed she has a trans-oceanic range of 3,800 nautical miles.

The collaborative team effort responsible for building Maia reflects the sporty, timeless design and high quality that Heesen is known for. No matter the port of call, Maia will deliver its owners and privileged guests to any destination on Earth in supreme comfort for years to come. She has recently entered final outfitting at the shipyard in Oss ahead of a 2018 anticipated delivery.

When it comes to amenities Maia delivers in spades with multiple tenders stored on the foredeck for easy access to explore the local environment. If the situation calls for relaxing on board Maia accommodates with her own beach club, bar and sauna.
