Company Bio

Makani offers Hawaiʻi’s most luxurious sailing adventure. Unlike any other charter boat on Oahu, Makani offers the exhilaration of Grand Prix speed sailing with the extravagance of a five-star hotel.

Impress your friends, family and colleagues by booking a private sail or snorkeling trip on Makani. Whether you’re planning a wedding, company meeting or social event, consider this primo catamaran for your venue. We offer a full bar plus a non-alcoholic bar, catering menus, transportation services to and from your hotel, ocean activities and professional lifeguards to ensure your safety.

Captain Jon Jepson’s vision originated from many years working in the marine industry. After working in windsurfing, scuba diving, surfing, sailing and submarines, Jepson set out to create a truly VIP experience at sea, indulging the high roller’s need for maximum speed and comfort. Makani was custom-built in 2004 in St. Croix in the United States Virgin Islands. Soon after, the catamaran made an 8,000-mile journey through the Panama Canal, up the coast of Central America before coming home to Hawaiʻi.
