Ma’Alahi is a classic center cockpit, bluewater cruiser designed to take you anywhere in the world. She was originally built by Sea Chief Yacht Builders in Taiwan in 1979, but has undergone a TOTAL RE-BUILD between 2013 and 2017. The work was meticulously done by local craftsmen in Honduras under the daily supervision of her very knowledgeable owner. Ma’Alahi retains her beautiful, traditional lines, but has been updated, customized and modernized to suit the needs of contemporary cruisers.
Please see the full specs for more details on this beautiful boat. Any item referred to as “NEW” in the description was completed between 2013 and 2017, unless otherwise stated.

The interior of Ma’Alahi has been completely re-done from top to bottom. She now has a very beautiful and functional two stateroom, two head layout. All interior teak was re-finished and any wood was replaced that needed to be. There is new Lonseal Marine flooring inside the entire boat. All of the interior cushions/covers, LED lighting and 12V fans are also new. There is a cohesive feel to the interior design with matching Corian countertops and custom cabinetry throughout. The entire interior is kept comfortable by two new marine air conditioning units.
Starting forward, the private guest stateroom offers a double V-berth with a new mattress. Just aft and to port is a head with new custom cabinetry, Corian counter, sink and Raritan manual toilet.
Moving aft, you enter the main salon. This area feels light and airy due to the two new additional hatches, new LED interior lights, new mounted 12V fans, white headliner and neutral upholstery. The newly varnished teak offers a nice contrast along with a traditional touch. The main salon has an L-shaped settee to port followed by a forward-facing navigation station. There is a straight settee to starboard.
Continuing aft and to starboard of the companionway, there is custom cabinetry that holds two new, super low-draw Engle M280 refrigerator/freezers. The long expanse of Corian countertop offers a nice workspace. The new custom Blue Sea Electrical Panels are also located in this area. Across from the cabinetry, under the companionway stairs, is an easy access door to the completely re-built engine room with new sound insulation. The engine compartment is easy to enter and you can actually sit down to work on the engine.
To port and aft of the companionway is the completely remodeled galley. There are all new custom cabinets, Corian countertops, the teak has all been re-finished and there is a barely used 3-burner, Force 10 propane stove/oven.
As expected with a center cockpit, the aft master stateroom is huge! There is a large, queen-sized, centerline berth with a custom pillowtop mattress. The ensuite head has new Corian countertops, custom cabinets, Raritan electric toilet and a separate, enclosed shower with new pump. The storage is plentiful and the lighting is great.
