LAYOUT
The two aft cabins and the starboard bow cabin are available for guests. Access is via steps leading down into the hulls from the salon and galley area. A comfortable couch around a table makes for a cosy hang out spot. The bar divides the galley from the seating area and has three bars stools.

The galley itself is spacious and fully equipped. There is a fridge, freezer and icemaker. a 4 burner stove with oven on gas. And a variety of appliances to make the menus creative and healthy.

The covered cockpit is divided by sliding doors that fully open from the salon area and shielded from the sun and possible rain. Again a long enclosed seating area around a large outside table gives comfort during sailing.
The aft deck holds our dinghy and when launched on the water while we are anchored the deck gives lots of space to hang out and swim from.
The side platforms at the cockpit area are great for relaxing.
Of course, as a true cat requires, Makai has a beautiful set of colourful bow nets that are so comfortable to lay back on that you never want to get up.. NapTime!! ;)
Lots of space on the front deck and even two bow seats on the tip of each bow to enjoy the ride or your coffee in the morning...
