The first fully foiling offshore monohull Flying Nikka completed an overnight test from her base in Punta Ala, averaging 20kn and reaching 36.5 on a cold night with waves.



The latest MAT1220 to leave the MAT Yachts factory in Izmir is the new ‘Bushranger’, heading to Australia for Gerry Hatton and his team just as they win their second NSW ORC Championship Title in a row with their exceptionally successful MAT1245.



The latest MAT1220 hull 2 is complete for a Japanese client, and looking fabulous! This is the first bulb keel version, looking forward to seeing her get up and go.

Our 60′ Foiler Flying Nikka made her debut at the Rolex Maxi Yacht Trophy in Porto Cervo, the most celebrated event in the most stunning location in world yachting.  Competing crews were eager to see how the new concept performed, and were not disappointed as the offshore-capable foiler raced through the fleet.

Arkas MAT Sailing Team have launched the first MAT1220 ‘Blue Moon’, taking our dramatically styled new 40’ design and setting a new standard for artistic livery! Arkas are one of the strongest racing teams in Turkey, and have long had a strong relationship with builder MAT Yachts.


Blue Moon is the first of four MAT1220’s currently on order, in both the fin keel and bulb keel versions. Designed to be a versatile IRC and ORC performer both inshore and offshore, the next three boats will go to Japan, Australia, and Sweden, emphasising the worldwide success MAT has earned over 20 years of performance yacht construction.
