Sailing Charters

Come Sail Aboard Nova

Mele Makani

A Catalina 42 MKII, Nova is charter-ready for day sailing around the beautiful waters of Maalaea, she is a beautiful platform for private morning snorkel trips away from the crowds at some of Maui’s less frequented reefs.

She is perfect for evening sunset cruises or just a day sail to get out and feel the Maui trade winds. We specialize in customizing your experience. Whether it is a family snorkel outing, proposal, birthday, wedding party, ash spreading, fishing, or your very first sail, Maui Custom Charters will exceed your expectations

If you really want to see Maui, you have to get off that pool chaise and get on the boat. Nova’s crew customizes private yacht charters to make your trip the best part of your Maui Nui experience. Maui has so much to offer, but you can’t see it from your hotel.


Maui’s tradewinds offer great sailing all around Maui County (Maui, Lana’i & Moloka’i). Nova is the perfect vessel to experience the freedom of moving on the wind along the water.

Whale Watching:

With NOAA’s Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary located right in Kihei, whale watching is the best in the world in Ma’alaea Bay. Every year the same whale community ‘commutes’ from Alaska to birth their calves around Maui in our warm, safe waters.

Private Charters

Nova is available for custom private charters for groups up to six persons.
