A project that combined the input of John Leek IV of Ocean Yachts and Steve French of Applied Concepts
Unleashed in Stuart, Fla., has produced the new Makaira 64, which features a hull that is an evolution of French’s Waveform
hull bottom. Featuring a sharp entry and an efficient running surface to be a fast yet stable rough water boat the hull build
utilized vacuum infusion technology from the keel up to produce a high-strength, lightweight foundation which the Makaira was
built around. Designed with serious bluewater fishing in mind the cockpit features two in-deck fish boxes, a refrigerated
drink box and dedicated Eskimo ice box, plus lots of tackle storage. A mezzanine bench seat has a freezer below while port and
starboard jump seats offer additional storage below. A 35-gallon livewell is located in the mezzanine while an additional
livewell/fish box is located in the transom. A second freezer is located under the port jump seat. Tackle storage as well
as cockpit switches are located under the starboard jump seat.
The interior has an innovative four-stateroom, three-head layout with the galley forward and salon aft. The master and VIP staterooms both feature queen berths while the guest stateroom has twin crossover berths. The dedicated crew’s stateroom offers engine room access and also houses the washer/dryer. The master, VIP and crew heads all feature private showers, Corian countertops and sinks, Amtico flooring, and VacuFlush heads. The flying bridge features a center console-style helm with three Release Marine teak helm chairs and integrated barrel seats forward. Wraparound lounge seating with lots of storage below offers additional seating forward of the helm. A unique Ocean View Marine Welding tower compliments the lines of the boat.
