The luxury yacht Mayan Queen is a 92 meter motor yacht, built by Blohm & Voss and delivered to her owner in 2008. She replaced a 49 meter yacht built by Feadship, also named Mayan Queen.
She is designed by Tim Heywood, while her interior is designed by Terence Disdale Designs. She can accommodate 16 guests and 24 crew. The yacht has a cruise speed of 20 knots with a top speed of 22 knots.
Not much is known about her interior and there are no interior photos available. We do know the VIP suite has an ‘invisible’ balcony. A balcony platform slides out from the superstructure when needed, preserving the yacht’s sleek lines.
Mayan Queen has visited destinations like London (2009), Honduras (2009), Sidney (2011), Auckland (2012) and Tallinn (2013). In May 2015 she was spotted in the Aegean Sea, near Rhodes. The beautiful pictures on this page are made by Ship Dreams.
