A Symbol

The name Malizia, chosen by Pierre, symbolises the Grimaldi family history and their deep connection to the ocean. It translates as “the wily one’’ a name that was given to Francesco Grimaldi in 1297 after he established the family dynasty. Pierre shows that there is a sentimental link to the name and says: “Given what Malizia represents for us in the Principality of Monaco, I’ve always wanted to give this name to a race boat.”

A boat at the service of science & education

Malizia is embarking on an exciting adventure with the Ocean Challenge. Everyone has their own ocean challenge but our mission is to promote ocean science, protection and education around the world whilst inspiring the next generation with sailing adventures.
