Elica Group has announced the launch of a 15-meter catamaran, theOmaya 50. Built along the banks of the Danube, this model is intended to pave the way for an entire segment of high-end motor catamarans. While waiting to see it, these are the preview numbers: 15 meters overall, 8.4 meters maximum beam, up to four cabins and eight berths (plus two crew cabins) and plenty of open space, including the fly. The new Omaya can then have engines, 300, 640 or 880 horsepower.

If Omaya Yacht is a new brand, certainly the group behind it, Elica Group, is not. Active in the industry for more than 30 years, the yard is in fact a well-established and structured business, recently upgraded through investments in both equipment and production space, which has now grown to more than 15,000 square meters indoors.



OMAYA 50 – Concept and volumes

A pivotal point behind the design of the yard’s first 50-footer is livability. Lots of space outside and inside, then. The length of 15 meters and the beam of 8.4 meters are remarkable numbers, especially the width. A solution, this one, that amplifies the usable area by no small margin, to the greater gain, above all, of the sleeping areas present in the two hulls, as well as on the main deck.

OMAYA 50 – Main deck

In the first case, one hull offers double cabins, with the second, however, devoted entirely to the master cabin. In the version intended for 8 people, however, there are four cabins, with the two sections symmetrical in terms of habitability. The forward section can accommodate cabins intended for the crew.

In the case of the three-cabin layout, it will be the port hull that will be presented as the one intended for owner’s use. In this variant, a large double area will occupy the aft section, with access to the hull itself facing, instead, an antechamber consisting of a sofa, desk and storage areas. In the bow, a huge bathroom replaces what, in the opposite hull, is the space for the guest double.

The starboard hull (as well as the port hull in the 4-cabin version), on the other hand, houses an aft double VIP cabin and a forward double guest cabin. Both are equipped with full bathrooms with showers.

Here there is a large L-shaped sofa with electrically lowerable table and poof in overlook. To the left, facing the sea, the kitchen, complete with every appliance, takes hold instead.

OMAYA 50 – Blanket and Fly

The approximately 15 x 8.4 meters of the Omaya 50 is not only advantageous for interior volumes. Gaining no small amount of space, in fact, is also the deck, which, cleverly, has been developed in three distinct areas. It will be here, the forward space, that will offer the vast majority of convivial and sunbathing spaces, leaving the cockpit as a secondary convivial area, although always equipped with a large table for eight. Two sofas in the bow overlook two large sundecks, creating an expansive sea terrace.

Competing with this space, however, comes the flybridge, protected by a hard top and complete, in turn, with lounging areas. Here, in fact, a bar cabinet takes its place behind the second wheelhouse, immediately followed by a huge sofa. To starboard, however, a third large sundeck engages the spaces, providing additional elevated sunbathing space overlooking the water.
