The MAIN yacht is a 65.0m superyacht built in 2008 and delivered later that year by Codecasa at their shipyard in Viareggio.
She is the largest yacht ever built by the Italian company, being the first hull in its 65.0m series. She is also in the top 5% by LOA and she is currently sailing under the Italian flag.

MAIN yacht interior
The MAIN yacht’s interior was penned by Italian design house Ortelli Achitetti and the yacht owner, Giorgio Armani.
A monochromatic palette decorates the inside of the vessel, perfectly matching the natural birchwood and marble.
Armani designed a lot of the furniture and decor in their in-house interiors divisions.
Armani himself insisted on designing the blinds and windows, as he wanted to ensure a panoramic view of the ocean.
Overall, MAIN features a combination of a minimalist and modern Asian style that can be found all over the ship.
MAIN can easily accommodate 12 guests in seven comfortable suites, one master suite, and six guest cabins.
She is also capable of carrying 14 crew members on board, including the captain of the yacht.
Some of the luxurious amenities the MAIN yacht has to offer are a large sundeck jacuzzi, cinema, spa pool, indoor gym, and an electric fireplace.
The MAIN yacht features exterior design by Codesa, as well as naval architecture.
Her exterior is built with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.
The vessel’s sleek appearance was designed to hide all technical details that could “stain” her spotless aesthetic.
Unlike many others, MAIN was created to camouflage at sea with a dark-green exterior color, according to the owner.
Her unique style was inspired by military vessels.
This 65.0m superyacht has an 11.2m beam, a 3.7m draft, and a volume of 11.47 GT.
Powered by twin diesel Caterpillar (2,470HP) engines, the MAIN yacht cruises at 14 knots, reaching a maximum speed of 17 knots with a range of 6,910 n/M.
She has a fuel capacity of 160,000 liters.
She is fitted with zero-speed stabilizers, which make the onboard experience even more comfortable. In 2008, the MAIN yacht received the RINA (Registro Italiano Navale) certification.
Currently, MAIN is not for sale or available for private charter. However, her current price is $65 million with her annual running cost fluctuating between $6 – $14 million.
MAIN yacht owner – Giorgio Armani
The MAIN yacht owner is Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani. He is known for being the pioneer in bringing minimalist high-end menswear fashion.
Armani has become one of the most respected brand names in the fashion and luxury brand industry.
The MAIN yacht was built to replace Armani’s old yacht, Marilû, which he also designed.
There are also rumors that the designer met with The Italian Sea Group to design a 236ft yacht that will be launched in 2024.
