Power and Poise Through Form Stability

The MAKAI M37 is designed to make every minute on the water count. And every inch of the M37 is carefully considered to deliver excitement and cruising practicality. But it’s not just about taking care of the numbers: The MAKAI M37 delivers breath-taking looks, catamaran comfort and an unprecedented driving experience. It features two distinct and refined cabin spaces, with layouts suitable for cruising couples and families alike, and an enormous deck space fit to entertain 12. With the performance advantages of a catamaran, and making no sacrifices on style or comfort, the M37 is truly unique.

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 this cat has claws: 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.

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.

Your boating time is ever-more valuable and we know that’s boaters are demanding more creature comforts on board. That’s why we fit inboard diesel engines and alternators to deliver all of the most important luxuries on our power catamarans–a full supply of hot water, air conditioning or heating. Our practical cruising galley offers hot drinks and great food with the refrigerator and storage space for a week-long adventure.

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.

Roof-covered boats provide protection from the elements for you, but also for the boat. Open versions are regularly far 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 form stability mentioned earlier means the MAKAI M37 Power Catamaran is able to offer a great night’s sleep–so we focus on making the most of that by giving you a private, and luxurious cabin suitable for week-long adventures. Italian design and refined wood finishes make the interior inviting and comfortable for long stays.

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.
