The deep comfortable cockpit is the most popular place to hang out and to dine under the stars. There is also the option of dining in the salon in the event of a shower.


Deck beds are provided together with a hammock. There is a shower on deck for use after swimming.


The Guest cabins boast loads of storage space, large hatches and ceiling fans. The beds are easily accessible from their sides as opposed to the 'crawl in' type. The crews' quarters are located seperately with their own entrance.


Fernando is our resident professional chef with an excellent reputation. The galley is well equiped with a full size oven and 4 burner stove, fridge & freezer, toaster, coffee maker, blender and microwave.  A large barbeque is also situated at the stern of the yacht.

See Gallery page for more photos.


Included in the charter price is a cooked breakfast each morning, one Captain's Dinner and one lunch.  Other meals are chargable (see pricing page) giving you the choice of eating on board or on shore.  Self catering is also an option. Contact us.


Please inform us of any food and drink preferences at least a week before commencement of the charter.

Fernando will do his best to obtain these but please note that some food and drinks are not always available in the Islands and some are available only in season.

WHAT TO BRING on your Crewed Sailing Yacht?


DRIVERS' LICENCE, if you want to hire a car.

Lots of shorts and swimwear

SHORTS are OK to go ashore, however bikini tops are frowned upon by many locals, so bring COVER UPS.

If you want an evening on shore, casual wear is fine but for the finer restaurants, shirts and long pants are preferred.

SOFT LUGGAGE Please. We do not have the storage space for suitcases and if you cannot fit all your clothes in one bag, then you are trying to bring too much ! 

You will not need shoes on the boat.

NO OILY SUNSCREENS please, to avoid damage to upholstery.

Feel free to bring your favourite CD'S / DVD'S or IPODS. We have IPOD/MP3 connection to our stereo.

Towels are provided but we request that you bring your own beach towels.
