Mayla Yacht is already well known in the arena of sports car manufacturing, so why not extend that skill to the waters? That’s the very reason behind the development of this 44-foot GT superboat that supersedes the current designs in both aesthetics and visual presence. Not to mention it’ll come with an option to choose from gas, diesel, electric and hybrid powertrains delivering 3,000 HP. Each one of these monster engines is capable of hurling the speedboat to a top speed of 100 knots.
The German marque currently designing winning yachts, knows this space well, therefore, justifying their foray into the superboat design world. This sharp pointed nose vessel made from high-end carbon fiber material has a spacious cockpit section to enjoy the summer rides and a water toy garage that doubles as a beach club. If all this already excites you, mark your calendars for the Mayla GT world premiere at Boat Düsseldorf 2024.

The use of carbon prepreg keeps the overall weight well below 3.8 tons which helps both in efficiency and range. To help the boat achieve hair-raising speeds between 50 – 100+ knots, there’s the deep-V monohull with twin transversal steps that create air bubbles to reduce surface friction. Also, the Petestep deflectors push the water spray downwards to facilitate power efficiency, stability and reduced noise.
When it’s time to finally settle down and have a lounge party in the open seas, the boat accommodates up to 8 passengers in the multipurpose cockpit section. There’s everything from sundeck with sliding loungers, and foldable dining tables to a wet bar or BBQ. If you feel the urge to get up close and personal with the inviting waters, the beach club platform is the section to settle down. Under the deck, the GT has a double bed, sofa lounge, wardrobe with vanity, entertainment system and separate shower sections. For a comfortable stay, the vessel has on board 200 liters of fresh water and 22 liters of hot water system.
According to Mayla, the entry-level GT superboat will make its first appearance at the Boat Düsseldorf with a price tag of approximately $1.8 million. If interested buyers have more cash to burn, they can opt for more options to spoil themselves in luxury. If you are someone who wants to try out the vessel but doesn’t have that amount of money to spare, the German company is also offering trials beginning in Spring 2024.
