Sailing Yacht Marae Overview

Marae, pronounced Mar-eye, is a 108ft Pilothouse Sloop and winner of "Best Sailing Yacht", International Superyacht Design Award, 2004.

The name Marae has origins from the native Maori tribe in New Zealand meaning a special meeting place for family and friends. With Marae's New Zealand construction by Alloy Yachts, the name is a natural fit.

This elegant yacht must be seen to fully appreciate. Marae offers plenty of deck space for guests to enjoy the sun and scenery, a swim platform for easy access to the water and a variety of toys including a laser dinghy, stand-up-paddle board and kayaks.

Aboard Marae, enjoy a relaxed, family atmosphere with all the luxury expected from a superyacht charter.

Marae is well known for her pretty lines and great sailing performance - we invite you to take the helm and try her for themselves!

Moving forward are the port and starboard steering stations, followed by a covered center cockpit with U-shaped sofas to port and starboard and hi-lo table for dinner or cocktails. These areas can be converted to lounging pads.

Interior woodwork on Marae consists of stained walnut and is complemented by luxurious fabrics and crisp white linens, down duvets and down pillows in the staterooms. The upper saloon has a full wet bar with stools and a leather U-shaped sofa with coffee table that converts into a comfortable lounging area with panoramic views.

The main saloon offers guests comfortable sofas, coffee table and dining table seating six. Galley and crew areas are forward of the saloon and guest accommodations aft of the saloon.

The master stateroom is full width aft with private access to the aft deck. Centerline queen size bed, office and en-suite bath room. Roomy stall shower with built in seat.
