Launched in 2000, MAYA RAY accommodates up to eight guests in four staterooms aft, and up
to five crew in two cabins forward.
MAYA RAY is a cutter rigged sloop with roller furling on the genoa and staysail, and a
conventional Park Avenue boom controlling the fully battened mainsail. Although she is
relatively light, she is not overly “high tech”, (for instance all her winches are conventional
hydraulic Lewmar self tailers), as the owner’s requirement was for a fast, comfortable world
cruiser that can be maintained by an experienced crew in remote cruising areas without the
need to find “repair technicians”.
This goal has been admirably achieved. MAYA RAY was sailed from her builders in Cape Town,
South Africa to the Caribbean in early 2000. She then cruised the Mediterranean, Caribbean,
Pacific, and Indian Oceans, and stopped in Cape Town in 2005/2006 for a refit by her builder.
Then a return to the Mediterranean again for 3 years followed by a trip to the USA, into the
Pacific once again, onto Asia, back into the Pacific and a return to the USA in 2016. In this
time she has had exceptional care by a knowledgeable and experienced owner. The entire rig
has been replaced, all systems regularly serviced, and MAYA RAY is presented for sale in
superb condition.
The entire interior of MAYA RAY is in foam cored blond teak paneling, grain matched to
perfection. Cabin soles are teak and holly, and deckhead liners are white ultra suede.

MAYA RAY is a singularly beautiful yacht. She has served her first and only owner and his
family well over the past 16 years in all oceans of the world. She is a fast cruising yacht
deliberately designed to be serviced and maintained by her crew. Systems are simple to
understand, and care has been taken to provide easy access. She has been meticulously looked
after with regular yard periods and refits.
MAYA RAY is now offered for the first time on the brokerage market, and has been realistically
priced for a quick sale.

Layout and Accomodations

A sliding glass panel door leads from the center cockpit to the upper saloon, which is fitted with
a breakfast table with a C-shaped bench settee to port, raised to a suitable height to give a
panoramic view. The impressive navigation station is to starboard, aft of which is the stairway
to the owner and guest accommodations.


The full beam saloon is open to the deckhouse only three steps above. The owner’s preference
for large, plump, comfortable seating is evident in the huge settee around the beautifully made
but simply designed dining table to port. A coffee table to starboard is flanked by two smaller
settees which conceal two stainless steel lined wine chillers with a capacity for ten cases.
A television is against the aft bulkhead just to starboard of the steps to the upper saloon.
The large and well equipped galley, forward of the main saloon and opposite the crew mess, has
enough preparation surfaces to feed up to 16 people at a time. Galley and laundry equipment

All the way aft, and accessed from a companionway in the upper saloon to the lower lobby, the
handsome owner’s stateroom has a centerline king sized berth, and all of the facilities that one
would expect including a writing desk, hull ports, and a generous head and shower.
The two guest staterooms have queen sized berths, plenty of drawer and locker space, and
roomy head and shower cubicles. The starboard cabin also has an upper Pullman berth cleverly
disguised with false locker doors.
To starboard of the steps in the main saloon is a small lobby leading to a small but useful single cabin with ensuite head and shower. This serves as a day head when the cabin is not in use,
and the cabin, with an upper Pullman berth, can double as overflow crew accommodation on
delivery trips, and for the owner’s children’s friends, or for a diving instructor.
The crew quarters forward has a comfortable crew mess with Miele clothes washer and dryer
positioned beneath the benches. Opposite to port is the galley.
Forward to port is a crew head and shower, forward of which is the captain’s cabin with double
berth, and with access, via a watertight door, to the forepeak sail locker. On the starboard side
is another crew shower and a long cabin with three single berths.
The crew quarters are fitted out in the same style and finish as the owner’s quarters aft.

Owners Comments

The time my family and I have spent on Maya Ray is priceless. For 16 years I have been
fortunate enough to spend many holidays visiting some of the most beautiful locations around
the world including Tahiti, New Zealand, Greece, and the Caribbean. My children and I have
loved snorkeling, diving, swimming with marine life, and paddle boarding while on board. Diving
has been more than exceptional. The convenience of full service quarters makes for the most
relaxing vacation, allowing for uninterrupted family time. It has been a joy watching my children
learn about and develop a love for sailing. We played, swam, explored, talked, laughed, and
rested as a family and the boat has always been home away from home.
