Marc bought Malu in 2009 in Martinique; it was love at first sight. Since then Malu has been carefully restored and updated to turn her into our floating home.
This boat is not a mass produced charter boat, but an individually build and designed steel vessel with character and charm. Malu is bespoke; lovingly built over a period of years in the Netherlands. Her hull is built from 5mm steel and her rig is of strong pine. For a boat of this size Malu offers a floating home with comfortable, spacious living space and a good quality of life.
Malu is 11 metres long, has a weight of 15 tons. She will never win any races but amongst friends she is lovingly known as the ‘lounge boat.’ Over the years we have developed an intimate relationship with Malu and every day we develop a fresh appreciation of her qualities.
Malu has space for four people; a comfortable guest cabin with its own hatch and a fan for a fresh breeze, plus the owner’s separate cabin. This cabin will accommodate two people as two single beds or one double bed. We provide your bed linen and on-board towels, but not beach towels. Malu has one shower/toilet room that is independent to either cabin.
In the Polynesian language “Malu“ means ‚guard‘, ‚peace‘ and ‚freedom’… and this is what she means to us.
Marc and Ivonne, and their two dogs; Mango, a loving adult female, and Sugar, a male playful puppy. We work together as a team to cater for every aspect of your stay aboard and your adventure.
