Mayla GT: The Revolutionary Carbon Fiber Powerboat Making Waves

The Mayla GT, a stunning 44-footer from the German start-up Mayla, is set to revolutionize the boating industry. Showcased at Boot Düsseldorf, this vessel combines the speed of a classic speedboat with the luxury of a motor yacht, all encased in a sleek carbon-fiber body.

A Design Inspired by Legends

Drawing inspiration from the go-fast boats of the ’70s and ’80s, the GT boasts an angular, retro-futuristic design. Weighing in at just 4.5 tons, it features a deep-V hull with twin transversal steps and patented Petestep deflectors, which reduce energy usage by up to 35 percent and improve planing efficiency.

Power and Performance

The GT offers multiple powertrain options, from gas and diesel to electric and hybrid. The top-tier GTR-R model delivers an astounding 3,100 hp from dual gas engines, reaching speeds over 100 knots (115 mph). The eco-friendly E-GT model, with an electric powertrain, achieves 50 knots with 2,200 hp, while the hybrid E-GTR combines electric and diesel power for a top speed of 60 knots (69 mph). The model showcased at Boot featured two V8s with 650 hp, capable of over 70 knots.

Luxury and Versatility

Beyond speed, the GT is designed for comfort and entertainment. The cockpit accommodates eight passengers and includes a sundeck with sliding loungers, a wet bar and BBQ, and a foldaway dining table. A beach club at the stern houses a garage with an electric transom door.

Comfortable Overnight Stays

Below deck, the GT offers a cabin with a double bed, sofa, wardrobe, vanity, and en suite. High-tech entertainment systems with TVs and premium audio ensure a luxurious stay.

Pricing and Availability

The entry-level GT is priced between $1.74 million and $1.85 million (€1.6 million and €1.7 million), depending on the configuration. Customizable options include layout, hull color, and interiors. Interested buyers can schedule a sea trial this spring in Europe.

The Mayla GT is not just a boat; it’s a revolutionary blend of performance, luxury, and cutting-edge technology, setting a new standard in the marine industry.
