The 115-foot Maiora Exuma has a 4-foot draft, making it capable for Bahamas cruising.

Next Yacht Group, the parent company of AB Yachts and Maiora, has announced the launch of the 115-foot Maiora Exuma.

The yacht comes in at 300 gross tons with a reported top speed of 35 knots. The design includes a straight bow, open stern and water-jet propulsion. Power is a trio of 2,000 hp MTU engines. Owners also can opt for a triple 2,600 hp configuration that the builder says juices the top-end speed to nearly 40 knots.

Draft is about 4 feet, allowing for skinny-water cruising in the Bahamas. Additional features include meta-panels and resonators for soundproofing, an automated trim-control system and two gyrostabilizers.

There are two garages on board, with the side garage sized for a Williams Dieseljet 625 and the aft garage suited for an 11-footer along with watertoys.

Also notable is the upper-deck lounge, which is a 506-square-foot, enclosed space. It can convert to an open-air space by opening a door, sliding open the moonroof and lowering the side glazing. The builder calls this setup an “on-demand flybridge.”

How many guests can sleep on board? The Maiora 35 Exuma can accommodate 10 or 11 guests in five staterooms, including a full-beam master forward on the main deck. There also are quarters for five or six crew.
