101 Feet Oceanic Ketch

MARAMA is a unique Sailing Yacht, designed by Dominique Presles, and built of aluminium by the N2A shipyard in St Nazaire, under the control of Bureau Véritas. 

It is an exceptional ship on all levels.


Expedition Sailing Yacht

Very fast because of its design and equipment, MARAMA is an extremely robust expedition sailboat capable of any type of navigation.

Its size gives a fantastic interior volume, both for passengers and for the equipment on board, but also provides a very high level of comfort at sea, and a very high cruising speed, under sail as well as engine.

The MARAMA bridge is huge. A central cockpit for relaxing, a rear cockpit for the helm and manoeuvres.

A cruise aboard MARAMA is exceptional in more ways than one : the feel of the helm, the comfort, the luxury of space down below and on deck, and the privilege of being on board an exceptional ship.

The choice that has been made is to limit the number of people on board in order to enjoy the exceptional comfort of this 101 feet sailboat. The luxury of Marama is the luxury of space ! (not to mention the small dishes cooked by our cook)


Marama was designed to give its crew maximum safety regardless of sea and wind conditions. Everything is oversized on board, from hull sampling to mast and rigging sections.



At all wind conditions Marama is a very fast sailboat, which provides fantastic gliding sensations and makes the crossings much more enjoyable. Taking the helm of Marama is an unforgettable experience.
