About MARAE

Operating in the Bahamas, Caribbean, North America and the Other Areas

MARAE, 'pronounced ‘Mar-eye’,   108' Pilothouse Sloop, "Best Sailing Yacht", International Super Yacht 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.

MARAE Built by the world-renowned New Zealand super yacht builder Alloy Yachts in 2004, the award-winning Marae has proven herself to be one of the finest luxury sailing yachts afloat today. Her Ted Fontaine design captures the essence of a classic sailing yacht with timeless lines while incorporating the spaciousness and the engineering of a much larger yacht, delivering the whole with superb guest areas and sailing performance that enraptures and excites in equal measure.

Refitted in 2009 and in 2017, she features new paintwork,the latest in entertainment systems, new guest amenities and toys, and new systems to ensure a faultless and unsurpassed luxury yacht charter. From her elegant interior to her inviting deck spaces, and from her vast array of water toys to the unparalleled service from her experienced crew, she provides the ultimate getaway to share with family and friends. Better than the best luxury hotel. Finer than the finest full service villa. Your private paradise awaits.

Testimonials

With tears in our eyes and hugs all around we sadly had to take leave of Marae and her crew today. What an amazing holiday we have had! Frank, as I am sure you know, is a truly professional charter skipper who knows exactly how to run a charter for the maximum enjoyment of your charter guests. 

Penny surpassed our wildest dreams in terms of her culinaryskills; creating special dishes to meet our tastes and preferences. Indeed inher presentation for dinner on Chinese New Year's Eve she showed just how farshe had researched Chinese traditions but also amazed us with hand madedumplings that surpassed the best to be found in China! If you ever have needof a relief Chef again you should ask for Penny, if she is available.

Jeremy has a maturity and professionalism way beyond hisage. He not only so ably supports Frank but also is able to teach guests in allthe water sports and toys to be found on board. He is a huge asset aboardMarae.

Your hostess, Lizzie, has just the right attitude and senseof humour to be able to keep your guests happy. My wife and guests lovedher! 

Altogether your crew make Marae excel as the Super Yachtthat she is and I would not hesitate to heartily recommend Marae as the firstchoice they should make when contemplating a charter of this class.

Thank you for sharing your dream with me. I consider it aprivilege to have been allowed to enjoy your beautiful yacht.

Frank,
 I just wanted to take a minute to state my appreciation for you and your crew.  You all made what was a great reunion of friends, a great trip of fun and learning.  What a wonderful group of people commanding an unbelievable vessel! 
I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about sailing and all of the systems and challenges from you and Dylan.  Sue’s cooking and wonderful smile (no I am not flirting with your wife) was so exceptional and engaging.  Randy mentioned he cannot get is wife to announce dinner like Sue did.  Unrealistic expectations on Randy’s part?  Dylan’s depth of understanding of the many systems required to keep all things smooth and efficient is unbelievable!  I hope to get to learn more from him in future trips (if I am so lucky).  Kendall’s service was great and it was fun to see her loosen up and get more comfortable and show more of her personality as the weekend went on.  I think all four of us saw a bit of our daughters in Kendall.  Please pass my appreciation on to all! 
Lastly, Frank the amount of knowledge you have at your command related to the ship (systems, tactics, management, etc.) and the world in general is fantastic!  I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations on all manner of subjects.  Thank you again for making a great reunion even better!
 Safe travels.
 With admiration and appreciation,
Drew

Oh my, Marae! What a wonderful time!  From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for inviting us to join you on your fabulous yacht for a week of Bahamian paradise.  Blue waters, white sands, sunny skies, delicious meals and laughter with friends all blended together to make a perfect cocktail of memorable fun. Oh, and might I add swimming pigs, sharks, lobsters and iguanas. And paddle boards, lasers, tubes and dinghy adventures make the list as well.  
 
Your kindness and warm hospitality, along with Marae's stately beauty made for a week we will long cherish.  To the crew we extend deepest thanks for the first-rate treatment we received.  The meals were legendary, the mate's limericks delightful, and  attention to detail - perfection.  Re-entry to real life on land will be difficult after such pampering. 
 
We know a fine yacht called Marae
Whose soaring mast touches the sky
Her sails catch the breeze
As she cuts through the seas
And her beauty will just make you sigh
 
With deep appreciation,
 
Joe and Tracy
