From Vitters Shipyard comes the 49.7m/163ft luxury ketch MERAKI, with a design from Hoek and interiors by Rhoades Young Design. The design team included sailing legend Chris Bouzaid to advise on hull shape and Clay Oliver for optimisation of underwater appendages. The focus has been on long-distance performance, reliability and comfort, with the Owner expected to cruise to remote locations and take part in regattas. She is constructed in high-tensile aluminium and was launched in January 2020, with delivery to her Owner later in the year. The accommodation sleeps a maximum of nine guests over four en-suite cabins, with an expert crew of eight for smooth sailing.
NOTABLE FEATURES OF MERAKI: ~Created by highly experienced shipyard and experts ~Excellent manoeuvrability ~Rare three cockpit layout ~Master suite connected to private cockpit ~Designed for performance, comfort and reliability over long distances ~Extensive variety of additional staysails, asymmetric spinnakers and code 0 from Doyle ~Air conditioning ~Wi-Fi
The sail plan has been extensively optimised and tested, with a versatile mizzen jib in addition to a mizzen staysail and gennaker.
Above deck, S/Y MERAKI features a large central cockpit with two steering stations. A second cockpit has a sprayhood for protection and can be found forward of the deckhouse. This area is designed for guests and crew, with access to the bow crew section. A third and final cockpit can be found towards the stern, and it has direct access to the Master suite below.

The interiors were done by Dick Young of Rhoades Young Design in conjunction with the Owner, Hoek Design and Vitters for optimal flowing layout while integrating all the essential technical components. The customised interiors feature contemporary classic styling using high quality materials and excellent attention to detail.
The lower deck layout places the crew accommodation forward with the salon amidships and the guest accommodation aft, with the full-beam Master suite having direct access to the deck above with its own private cockpit. The upper lounge provides a second comfortable, light-filled space for indoor relaxation and dining in air-conditioned surroundings.
The accommodation sleeps up to 8 guests across 4 en-suite cabins, with a professional crew of 8 to take care of every detail on board. Of note is the aft Master suite, which connects to a private cockpit above.

“Sailing yachts have long combined nature with manmade beauty.” - ED DUBOIS “I think that one of the best things about Vitters is a conscious effort to make each yacht better than the last one. And better, you can have a long discussion about what better means, but better really in terms of quality. They have achieved that. And the finished project always batted my expectation.” - NIGEL INGRAM
