The 33m luxury sailing yacht MARAE (ex PARAISO) was built by the renowned builders Alloy Yachts in 2004, (refitted in 2009, 2014) and accommodates up to 6 guests in 3 nicely decorated cabins. Designed by the distinguished architect Ted Fontaine, sailing yacht MARAE is an elegant yacht with great performance and a friendly, experienced crew. A remarkable yacht in her size range, she also boasts a raising centre board allowing access to shallower anchorages out of bounds to many others.

The Alloy sailing yacht MARAE has a traditional interior, decorated mainly in cream and navy blue, with fine walnut paneling throughout, creating an air of traditional elegance and charm. The main salon has an attractive and cozy lounge area with comfortable sofas and chairs, and a separate dining area. The upper salon has a bar area and a further dining table with comfortable leather bench seating, which converts to a reclining seating area for guests to enjoy films on the state of the art entertainment system, an innovative twist in the modern design behind the yacht’s more traditional layout.

Above decks the luxury yacht MARAE has good space forward, and a cushioned aft-deck and cockpit, offering the perfect settings for surveying the action while the yacht is underway, while the crew is on hand to prepare cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at any hour of the day. The pilothouse offers an alternative space from which to enjoy the stunning views and sailing conditions below decks.

Sailing yacht MARAE is well equipped with Wifi/ Internet, TV, DVD and CD players. The MARAE sailing yacht also has an impressive range of equipment and toys, including a 5m Williams Turbo Jet Tender with 110hp engine, 2 Laser sailing dinghies, Waterskis, wakeboard and tows, 2 person inflatable kayak, 2 inflatable paddle boards, Fishing gear, Snorkel gear, 2 mountain bikes.

In Polynesian societies, a Marae is a communal meeting place. Marae’s owner liked the name and since the yacht was built in New Zealand translates it into “a special meeting place for family and friends.”
