It might seem strange, but the 77.7-metre superyacht, “Malia” launched last year, looks like it came straight from Ancient Greece. Indeed, it was the intent of Greek shipyard, Golden Yachts and Studio Vafiadis to create a sculpted effect for this yacht, with a lengthened and uniform layout.

The Malia is a modern interpretation of the Greek shipyard’s canons of beauty, with all the comforts and services needed to enjoy a perfect experience. Daily Nautica was able to go on board during the MYBA Charter Show 2024 held at the Marina Molo Vecchio in Genova, along with Paola Bosman from Northrop & Johnson, the charter company that manages the Malia.


The interior design reflects the exterior with its elegant and modern look. The main saloon and staircase are by Massari Design, an Italian Design Studio based in Fano, who were able to take advantage of the generous beam of the vessel to add furniture and a large dining table onto the wooden floor. The undulated ceiling made of wooden slats, another characteristic of this yacht, gives a sense of movement, just like the exterior. Continuing on is the central staircase which connect the upper and lower decks. This is a very architecturally complex piece of work because of its irregular and wavy shape.

On the lower deck, Malia can accommodate up to 12 passengers in 8 comfortable suites.  There are twelve beds in total, including 6 king, and 6 singles. The full beam owner’s suite has a desk and living room to starboard and walk in wardrobe and bathroom to the bow.


Malia has a number of services, including a spa and gym. Passengers can also enjoy the view directly from the hot tub located on the main deck. Another service of note is certainly the beach club, accessible directly from the main deck through a large sliding glass door. The furniture, including tables and a large U-shaped sofa, create a relaxing space reminiscent more of a room than a terrace.


Built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the Malia has excellent performance for a yacht of its size. It has two 3433 HP Caterpillar engines, to navigate comfortably at 15.5 knots and reach a maximum speed of 18.5 knots, with autonomy of up to 4,872 nautical miles at cruising speed.
