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 maximise 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 maximise 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.

Catamaran Efficiency

Form Stability

Catamaran efficiency makes the M37 incredibly quick and fun to drive - it also makes it manoeuvrable. Propellers are spaced farther apart than on a monohull - making them more efficient and providing greater twisting force when manoeuvring 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.

Open boats are far more exposed than boats with roofs, meaning attention to detail is of utmost importance - so we took care built this power catamaran to last with thick UV-resistant gelcoats, temperature-regulating cockpit textiles, carefully waterproofed instrument installations, and a helm layout that maximises your fun in the sun while providing real wind protection.

Standing Headroom

Unlike any other power catamaran in its class, the M37 OPEN has 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.

Catamarans provide enhanced comfort over monohulls. Wide beam, enormous living space and an extremely stable stance - now Makai has taken this proven concept to the next level with our Air-Glide* power catamaran design.
Specific power catamaran design features, when combined with advanced naval architecture deliver the smoothest ride you will find.
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. As this air/water mixture progresses through the narrowing tunnel, it increases velocity and is compressed into a high pressure air cushion. This cushion provides upward lift on the hull transom extension and provides the desired cushioning effect when riding over oncoming waves.
The Tunnel Extension aft of the catamaran hulls lengthens the tunnels effective operating size providing lift directly over the propellers and countering the pitching effect of the drives. This provides a seamless transition from the catamarans twin hulls to the swim deck and eliminates resistance from prop wash or tunnel wake.
Asymmetric catamaran hulls produce the lowest drag and therefore the greatest speeds and fuel efficiency. Symmetrical hulls by contrast, sacrifice both speed and efficiency for comfort. Makai has designed a hybrid of these two power catamaran philosophies to pioneer a semi-asymetric hull shape delivering a carefully optimised balance of speed, comfort and fuel economy.

Semi Asymmetric Hulls


The MAKAI Power Catamaran Air-Glide* shock absorbing system increases the boats' efficiency proportionally with speed. That means no more bumpy rides out to your favourite reef and no more slamming over oncoming swells - speed does not come at the sacrifice of comfort. Unique, asymmetrical hulls draw air under the wing to create high pressure between the hulls, and low pressure outside of the hulls.

Enjoyable Sun Roof

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 maximises your fun in the sun.
