Presently in Antigua, the 108′ Pilothouse sloop, MARAE, is available for charter during the America Cup Races in Bermuda in June 2017 and has prime dock space reserved.  She will then charter in New England for the rest of the summer and in the Chesapeake during the fall, before returning to the Caribbean for charter next winter.  MARAE shows well at every boat show.  Whereas other yachts’ saloons are sparse, MARAE’s saloon always feels like you’re entering a well-loved, country estate, because the dining table is set; there is lots of objects d’art, and it feels like home.

MARAE has an elegantly appointed lower saloon with lounge to port and dining table to starboard with many fine objects d’art that sparkle, such as beautifully set dining table, upholstered dining room chairs, finely framed oil paintings, fresh flowers, silver decanters, and crystal glasses.  Her fabrics are stunning, her furniture traditional, and above all, Marae is comfortable. This lower saloon is right out of an elegant country house. Stunning!

One of the best things about this 2004, New Zealand-built sloop is how space flows. The master stateroom has its own set of stairs to a private cockpit aft, which is strictly for guests use. There’s a second cockpit amidships, which the crew use to steer. The three guest cabins are located aft of the saloon, while the crew of 4 sleep forward of the galley. There are upper and lower saloons on MARAE plus a pilot house cockpit, so guests have a choice of places to entertain.  After a day of sailing in the pilothouse, for instance, with its deep U-shaped settees, guests congregate in the upper saloon with bar for cocktails, while the crew prepares the lower saloon for dinner; guests then go below for dinner, and they might adjourn to the adjacent lower lounge for movies afterwards.

MARAE has a crew who fully appreciates the elegance that Marae offers, and the owner’s plan is to charter the vessel in the Eastern Caribbean and New England for the next two years, then sail her to the Mediterranean in the spring of 2018, where the yacht will continue to charter…. Among the choices of sports equipment MARAE offers guests are two Laser sailing dinghies, ideal for informal racing and teaching the grandchildren how to sail.
