Maiora Yachts was founded in 1980 by Francesco Guidetti and his wife Mirna Santucci. The production of first fiberglass hulls started already in the 1970s on the account of other shipyards but it is in 1985, after years of collaboration, that FIPA GROUP acquired the Maiora brand thereby instigating the drive towards the level of quality and excellence for which Maiora yachts are renowned today. In the 1990’s, with the purchase of the historic INTERMARE shipyard, FIPA GROUP gained ample docking space in the port of Viareggio which allowed it to extend its range of customer services to include complete after-sales service, dry-docking and refitting works, as well as carpentry and metal works. AB YACHTS, the leader in the production of fast open yachts with waterjet propulsion, became part of FIPA GROUP in 2001 thereby filling out the range of offered products with its decidedly sporting lineup. Moreover, during this period FIPA GROUP invested in its Massa premises creating 26,000 square meters of covered and 80,000 square meters of open space to be able to meet the demands of an ever increasing production, both in terms of unit numbers and their size.
In 2005 the entry of CBI NAVI shipyard into the Group was concluded and this finally rounded off the range of products on offer to include even metal and alloy construction. Finally, the latest development occurred in 2006 with the opening of new production facilities in Marina di Levante in Viareggio which also guarantee FIPA GROUP an even more direct access to the open sea.
