Our Charter Experts Onboard 141′ Italyachts MAKIRA: Perfect Island Cruising with Top Speed and Shallow Draft

Italyachts 141′ MAKIRA, with a draft of less than 5 feet, is the perfect luxury charter yacht for exploring the shallow waters of islands such as Makira in the Solomon Island chain. At a cruising speed of 30 knots, the yacht flies over the waves, like the Makira Thrush, Makira Leaf Warbler and Makira Moorhen. Luxury yacht MAKIRA is sleek, fast, sophisticated, fun and in many ways incomparable.

Our Charter experts had the opportunity to tour MAKIRA , speak with the crew and sample the chef’s gourmet finger foods while the yacht was on display at the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show. We began our visit on the aft deck, ideally designed for  the entire charter party to relax, enjoy the view and dine al fresco.

French Chef Willy Pastel excels at preparing sophisticated gourmet meals that range from the exotic to the traditional. His background at hotels such as the Plaza Athénée in Paris, and on charter yachts worldwide, has provided him the opportunity to discover and master many cuisines including: French, Italian, Asian, Russian and Creole.

The formal dining room forward of the main salon has doorways both port and starboard leading to the helm that can be closed to create a more private space. When these doors are open, along with a central window, guests have a forward facing view standing anywhere in the salon. This architectural innovation serves to augment the sense of space and visually integrate the main deck.

The stairway enclosure (starboard) is used as additional counter space and bisects the salon and dining area to subtly define the spaces. Below, the design theme is repeated with contrasting rich dark woods, white carpeting and light fabrics. The palette suggests the Asian concept of yin and yang to impart a feeling of overall balance on board.

Luxury superyacht MAKIRA features an open and spacious  master stateroom, a very sizable VIP, a double and a twin stateroom, which together provide accommodation for up to nine guests.

MAKIRA is currently available in the Bahamas based in Nassau. MAKIRA will be in the Western Mediterranean in time for the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix and may consider charters in Croatia from June.
