luxury and exclusivity… private yacht charters aboard ‘satisfaction’

satisfaction_mauiyachtLooking for an exclusive, private adventure for your guests on the sea? Look no further than SATISFACTION, Maui Yacht Charters newest addition to their ‘ohana. SATISFACTION is a 58-foot Sunseeker Luxury Power Yacht that your guests can charter for day charters to Molokini, around the islands of Maui, Lanai and Molokai and even overnight cruises.

Private cruise charters are a blank canvas in which the crew and captain take you where you want to go so you can do what you want to do — in total luxury. Here are just a few ways that guests have been enjoying time aboard SATISFACTION: Spending the day exploring the coastlines of Maui, Jetting over to Lanai for world-class snorkeling, Witnessing the lush, breathtaking sea cliffs of Molokai (the world’s highest!) and Scuba diving any one of Maui’s amazing reefs. Guests can also simply leave it up to the captain to navigate to his favorite locations.

“SATISFACTION offers clients a private, luxurious and memorable way to snorkel at Molokini, see the coral gardens and witness the breathtaking sights around Maui,” said Kip Larson, Maui Yacht Charter’s director of operations. “It’s a distinct Hawaiian ocean experience with every detail accounted for, from the gourmet menus all the way down to the bathrobes.”

We had a chance to sit down with Kip and ask him a few questions about this charter activity that is now offered by Maui Yacht Charters on SATISFACTION.

The Maui Concierge (TMC):

Describe to me several of the most popular trips that your guests have enjoyed with a private charter on SATISFACTION?

Kip Larson (KL):

Before the guest even steps out of their vehicle to board the yacht we personally call the guest to ensure that we meet their expectations by going over the menu and food restrictions they may have and anything specific they may wish to do on the yacht. As the Captain greets the guests we offer a complimentary parking pass to them.

Our guests have really been enjoying any and all of the following since we started private charters aboard SATISFACTION last year: We have been finding out our minimum of any charter is easily added to by suggesting a longer charter. Most recently the normal 2-hour sunset is turned into a 3-hour whale watch/sunset and some guests request to do a 2-6pm that will include snorkeling as well. Remember each charter is a private charter that we uniquely curtail to those guest’s expectations!

What are the list of amenities that are available on SATISFACTION?


The way our crew genuinely interacts with the guest giving them the feeling of “Ali‘i (royalty)” is probably our best amenity!

We offer a selection of morning coffees, teas and non-alcoholic beverages. Our morning 4-hour charter includes breakfast and lunch. The menu is individualized per each guest.

Other amenities included are: towels, snorkel gear, snorkel vests, 2 standup paddleboards (SUP), onboard showers, two state rooms and two water closets. We also have an additional outside shower to instantly wash the salt away.

Our overnight charters enjoy organic bamboo sheets, down comforters/pillows from Siberia and the bath towels are imported from Turkey.

Guests may bring on board their favorite white wine or champagne and our crew will serve them just like a 5-star restaurant.


How far in advance should a concierge/agent call to book a tour on SATISFACTION?


As with all of Maui’s popular activities if guests are specific on dates and times the earlier it is reserved the better. The best thing to do is call our reservations line which is forwarded directly to my cell phone, I will answer late into the evening and if you do get a voicemail I will call you back as soon as possible.


How many guests can SATISFACTION accommodate?


6 guests along with 2 crew and 1 captain.
