Luxury Sailing Yacht MARAE charter brief:
MARAE (32.9m / 108’), formerly Paraiso, is a custom-built luxury sailing sloop, launched by the New Zealand based Shipyard Alloy Yachts back in 2004. Most recently refitted in 2009 and 2014, she is primarily an elegant sailing yacht with friendly and experienced crew, which offers both luxury accommodation as well as stylish family sailing holidays and adventurous holiday experience. Designed by Ted Fontaine Design Group she combines traditional, classic design with modern facilities, clean lines and open deck spaces with two cockpit areas. MARAE features all the latest sailing gear, communications and entertainment systems on board and is always kept in excellent, yacht charter ready condition. MARAE's super yacht crew of up to four are usually offering luxury crewed charter itineraries around the New England and Maine regions of USA throughout the summer and the East CARIBBEAN during the season in the winter months.
Tip: Super yacht MARAE has a flexible draught which can go down from her usual 7.5m draft, she can raise it to only 2.15m. This raising centre board enables the yacht to access shallower anchorages which many other yachts in this range may have to avoid.
About Luxury Sailing Yacht MARAE:
MARAE is a luxury sailing yacht offered for yacht charters in the Mediterranean during summer months and the East Caribbean in the winter yacht charter season. This very elegant super sail yacht must be seen to fully appreciate her, and in terms of yacht charter she is a great value. Having won the ‘’Best Sailing Yacht’’ award at the International Superyacht Design Award in 2004 as the best 108’ Pilothouse Sloop, this MCA and Lloyds registered boat is a genuinely unique yacht charter proposition in the Atlantic and the Caribbean. The name Marae, pronounced as ‘Mar-eye’, has origins in the native New Zealand Maori tribe and it means a special meeting place for family and friends. As Alloy Yachts are New Zealand based shipyard, the name is a genuinely natural fit.
One of the best features of the yacht is a private aft cockpit on deck, which has a collapsible sprayhood, providing direct access to the master suite down below. The cockpit area is equipped with large cushions for lounging and it can also comfortably seat all guests for lovely al-fresco meals and panoramic views of the surrounding coastline during any of your super yacht charter cruises and whatever yacht charter itinerary is chosen. At the stern, a fold-out section provides comfortable steps and a useful swim platform for easy access to the water. Moving forward from the stern are the port and starboard steering stations, followed by one of MARAE's best features - a deck salon with a U-shaped sofa to port, an L-shaped one to starboard and hi-lo table for meals and cocktails. Side windows slide open and a removable aft Isenglass curtain protects against the elements. Very useful captive winches keep MARAE's sweeping teak decks free of clutter, while the protected helm station is located to starboard.
In the interior of MARAE, stained walnut woodwork used throughout is complemented by luxurious fabrics and crisp white bed 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 surrounding a coffee table that converts into a comfortable lounging area. The views from here also great, thus the area is the best alternative to the outside areas on deck. The main saloon has richly upholstered sofas with deep cushions, a coffee table and dining table with seating for six.
