Welcome

Team Malizia

Malizia symbolises the Grimaldi family’s deep attachment to the sea in this tribute to Francesco Grimaldi, a Genovese who arrived by sea in 1297 and founded the Grimaldi family dynasty. He was nicknamed La Malizia in the Monegasque language, meaning “the wily one”. For the Monegasque skipper the name has a special meaning: “Given what Malizia represents for us in the Principality of Monaco, I’ve always wanted to give this name to a race boat.”

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.”
