Founded in 2018, Moi Composites is an Italian startup company specializing in Continuous Fiber Manufacturing (CFM), an advanced 3D printing process that allows for additive production on an unprecedented scale. Just one year later, Moi Composites unveiled its 3D printed boat concept at the international Formnext trade fair. The Motor Additive Manufacturing Boat — dubbed “MAMBO” — was designed over two years in collaboration with industry experts specializing in automation, composites, and nautical manufacturing. And now it’s making its seafaring debut.

Measuring 21.3 feet by 8.2 feet and weighing just 1,764 pounds, MAMBO is both lightweight and ultra-durable. It features a hull shape resembling an inverted triangle, giving it superior structural qualities in addition to a distinctive organic design. Finished in brilliant snapper rocks blue paint, the boat’s fiberglass body is complemented by stark white leather seating and brown cork flooring. And when it comes to functionality — MAMBO has been fitted with a working navigation system as well as a 115hp motor. More than just a cool party trick, this boat is a case in point as to the immense potential of CFM technology.
