Enata Marine — a division of the Enata Group — has struck a deal with Mirarri, a new yacht brand from the United Arab Emirates, to construct its first line of luxury vessels.

Enata, a manufacturing group headquartered in the UAE, is known for its flying Foiler yacht but regularly collaborates with other businesses on white-label projects. The Enata shipyard will construct the yachts for Mirarri, which is led by Rashed Al Shaali of the Al Shaali family, the founding family of Gulf Craft.

The first yacht in the collection, designed by the lauded Timur Bozca studio, is a 16.7-metre vessel with a full carbon hull. It will incorporate Enata’s proprietary Wingman system, which enables remote control of various aspects of the yacht.

“I’m proud to launch Mirarri, a formidable collaboration between industry leaders Enata and Bozca,” says Rashed Al Shaali.

“I come from a long family history in the marine industry, having grown up surrounded by yachts and worked with esteemed companies such as Gulf Craft, Dubai Marine, and Al Shaali Marine since my earliest days.

“While these experiences have been invaluable, they’ve also revealed to me the stagnation within the yachting industry, prompting my desire for change. This drove me to partner with Enata and Timur Bozca.

“Having witnessed firsthand the exceptional quality and innovation of Enata’s products and facilities, it became evident to me that their standards far surpassed anything I had encountered before.

“Through Enata’s collaboration on Vatoz, I had the privilege of meeting Timur Bozca. His passion and design philosophy align perfectly with the disruptive vision of Mirarri in the luxury yacht sector, making him the ideal choice to lead the design.”

Aloïs Vieujot, chief executive of the Enata Group, adds: “We are extremely proud to serve as Mirarri’s manufacturing partner. The Mirarri yacht represents a significant advancement for the boating industry, made possible through Rashed’s vision and expertise, our manufacturing prowess, and Timur’s talent. The vessel’s full carbon hull and interior are seamlessly integrated into our facilities.

“Similar to its application on the Foiler, the Wingman will empower the owner to remotely control various aspects of the yacht, perform over-the-air updates, conduct remote diagnostics, and implement preventive maintenance.

“We are delighted to provide Mirarri with the facilities, technologies, and expertise necessary to bring Rashed’s vision to life.”

Enata, which is known for products like the Foiler, says approximately 80 per cent of its business stems from the B2B sector, including white-label products. It says this expertise gives it a strong advantage in the design of the Mirarri yacht, which blends futuristic and organic structures, incorporating materials including carbon fibre, kevlar, and titanium.

“When I met Rashed and he shared his vision for Mirarri and the collaboration with Enata, I knew it was going to be something extraordinary,” says Bozca. “This collaboration resonated with my passion for unique materials and design concepts. Rashed sought not only innovative design but also a distinctive sensory experience.”

The full-beam superstructure features a glass dome inspired by the shape of bird skeletons. This feature enhances structural integrity and provides natural light for the interiors.

The aft deck has a BBQ and bar area, while centre access ensures easy navigation to the forward part of the yacht. The first Mirarri has two full-beam cabins that feature vibrant colours and contemporary design elements.

“The journey has already begun,” says Al Shaali. “Construction of the first Mirarri yacht is well underway, with Enata having been in production of the tooling for several months now. I can’t wait for the first Mirarri to be revealed to the world.”

The first Mirarri yacht is currently under construction and is expected to be delivered in 2025.
