As you move about in your quarters, you are greeted by views of the water and islands nearby through the many portholes. Your sleeping berth is an extra comfy queen bed with the latest, a 4' cooling gel topper. Wrap yourself in Egyptian cotton sheeting and an overload of feather pillows and enjoy the heat or cooling piped right into your berth. You’ll find there is little or no rocking movement with a catamaran and it’s an easy trip to your bathroom (head) with all the amenities of home including a hot shower. There is room for your necessities but we are loaded which means there is limited stowage. Drawers and closets are something you must be able do without. We highly recommend you minimize your belongings and pack them in soft, collapsible bags.

Our shared space is called the Salon which includes a 6 person settee and the galley. The large windows provide an incredible 180 degree view towards the bow of the yacht. It’s a good place to hang in since it holds the flat screen TV (yes, we have satellite), stereo system, a library of DVD’s, books and games. You won’t have much need for the galley (unless you choose to cook) since the crew will be preparing most meals. We expect you to move about the vessel freely with the exception of the crew quarters. These are located on the opposite side of the vessel and are considered private.
When you rise in the morning, you'll be served a continental breakfast and some of the best lattes & teas you can get at sea. Together, we'll finalize plans for the day…usually involving "Play, Relax, Refresh, Eat & Repeat. We want to make sure you get the most from your day and every day until are back on the dock.
