MAKAI Power Catamarans Enters US Market

S&J Announced as the Premier U.S. Dealers for MAKAI

ANNAPOLIS, MD., May 20, 2021 — S&J Yachts, Maryland-based brokers of fine yachts with offices from Maine to Florida, is now the dealer for the all-new line of Makai Yachts power catamarans. Sharon and Jack Malatich, owners of S&J Yachts, see Power Catamarans increasing popularity and believe that Makai Power Cats set the new standard for performance, comfort, and forward-looking styling – Redefining the power catamaran for the modern boater.

"We are tremendously proud to be working with Makai and look forward to helping boaters enjoy these game-changing catamarans.”


Makai Yachts is led by three founders with unmatched track records in the marine industry in manufacturing, business management, sales and marketing. Seeing a power catamaran market in need of a game-changing boat and having built and launched a number of successful power catamarans, the team realized the need for a product to redefine the market. They decided to launch a new, independent brand to realize this unique and promising future, and Makai M37 was born.

This innovative tunnel design forces air through the open bows of the catamaran–channeling a mixture of air and water into the tunnel between the two hulls.

The perfect vessel for new and experienced boaters alike, the Makai M37 boasts fuel efficiency provided by the asymmetric hull design that enhances existing multihull benefits and gives the most spacious and comfortable cruising experience available. The unrivalled form stability and lateral space inherent to multihulls assure tranquil times at anchor as well as a steady passage while underway. The M37 is well-suited to week-long trips with spacious, private cabins — ideal to take a family or group of friends away to escape and enjoy the pure bliss of time on the water. The M37 will be followed by the M45, delivering the range and capabilities of a true liveaboard boat, a boat for year-round adventures.

Makai power catamarans are technologically advanced and fuel-efficient, featuring the Air-Glide shock-absorbing system that increases the boat’s efficiency proportionally with speed. That means no more bumpy rides out to your favorite reef and no more slamming over oncoming waves. Asymmetric hulls produce the lowest drag and greatest speeds and fuel efficiency from twin inboard engines that deliver stunning speed as well as power for all of the modern necessities. Makai Yachts feature a wide beam, enormous living space, and an extremely stable stance.

Makai’s mission is to build the boats that you want, and others can’t. Makai Yachts is entering the power catamaran market with the innovative new M37 and M45 models. Makai power catamarans set a new standard. Makai presents revolutionary boats for our new and changing world. For more information, contact S&J Yachts.
