Power and Poise Through Form Stability

The MAKAI M37 OPEN Power Catamaran is the ultimate sunchaser. Without the cruising protection offered by the roof (GT version) the OPEN is free to maximize your fun under the sun. Faster and more agile through reduced weight, this catamaran sweeps you away to distant lagoons and anchorages of calm and relaxation, while delivering fun and excitement for the whole family to enjoy along the way. Your experience is unlike any conventional motor yacht – the OPEN is offered with up to 3 refrigerators or icemakers, and even a mini-galley down below to allow you to maximize cockpit space above. We have a range of soft bimini tops to provide UV relief, and with powerfully airconditioned cabins, there’s no better way to take advantage of great weather.

MAKAI has carefully designed mood lighting in the cabins, cockpit, and on the foredeck, to make the atmosphere on the M37 utterly relaxing. Optional C-Zone lighting control enables Day, Night, and Twilight modes, while the premium sound system and low engine noise through careful insulation keeps sound in step with lighting.

Catamaran efficiency makes the M37 incredibly quick and fun to drive–it also makes it maneuverable. Propellers are spaced farther apart than on a monohull–making them more efficient and providing greater twisting force when maneuvering in tight spaces. Add in joystick control and this boat is simple to drive, and even more simple to dock.

Catamaran form stability means the M37 is calm in rough conditions, and stable at anchor. So you and your guests will feel the tranquility of a much larger yacht. But make no mistake this is a performance cruiser: up to combined 740 horsepower, along with our new and unique super low-drag catamaran design, enables a 38-knot top speed – numbers normally reserved for 1000HP monohulls.

Unlike any other power catamaran in its class, the M37 has a full standing headroom in two beautiful staterooms. All have double beds, and for families there’s even the option of a double bed with additional singles for extra kids and guests. Each cabin has its own shower, sink and electric flush toilet.

Our experienced team recognize the need for owners to personalize their boat, and our options list features everything from hydraulic swim platforms, to smart device integration. Tailoring your M37 catamaran can be as fun as driving it. MAKAI Catamarans use the latest technologies to make boating more fun, but with the future in mind as well. Consider the scalable electronics options – with additional displays, fishfinders, scanners, cameras, and even integrated night vision capabilities.

Roof-covered boats provide protection from the elements for you, but also for the boat. Open versions are regularly more exposed. That’s why MAKAI conducted exhaustive research into making the M37 OPEN Power Catamaran. We paid careful attention to the detail, and built it to last, with UV-protected materials, careful installation, and a helm layout that maximizes your fun in the sun. The M37 OPEN is the only boat in its class to offer premium textiles and joinery throughout. Paints come with a 5-year guarantee against fading and are offered in a range of metallic and gloss options to make every M37 unique.
