RUBICON has a new Honda 2000 watt generator that runs the A/C all night at anchor! However, it really only sufficiently cools the two fwd cabins OR the salon, so we can only offer A/C for two cabins. RUBICON also has a 2kw inverter and a 15 gph watermaker
The main salon seats 10 guests and crew. The cockpit table seats 8 guests and crew.
Rubicon also has trampoline awnings for the fore deck.

Guests can invest in $30/week for international wifi on their smartphones and iPads. Works great when 4 miles away from a repeater in the Exuma Cays. Each island has a repeater so sailing by or anchored there ensures a good connection.

CAPTAIN: ADAM DREFFIN
Adam Dreffin holds an MCA Master of Yachts 200 Tons. Adam was born in the Exumas aboard the boat of his parents, Peter and Tina Dreffin. At a young age, Adam disappeared into hidden coves with his brother, trolling for fish while handling a sailing dinghy, so he knows the Bahamas islands very well. He shot his first lobster at age 6. His passion for the islands is evident in his very presence.
Adam's parents, along with his younger brother Warren, all set off for a world cruise on their sailing boat once the boys reached teenage years, so Adam is also very widely travelled to many exotic parts of the world. When they reached Australia the boys went to school and college there, whilst their parents continued their cruise back home to the Bahamas.
Summers during school, Adam captained catamarans for Broadreach Sailing School in the French West Indies with high school kids aboard. He's also captained large yachts in New England and delivered vessels from the Mediterranean. He has run charters aboard Rubicon for several years in Exuma.
Adams specialty is as an avid sportsman on the water. He kite-surfs, windsurfs and relishes catching game fish while trolling between islands. He is also certified as a Sivananda yoga instructor.
The Dreffin family now has three catamarans in the Exumas, as the parents charter with one boat, Adam has Rubicon, and his younger brother has just added the third catamaran to the fleet.....so this family are true sailors with over 35 years experience at sea!
CHEF: TORY REDINGER
It is no wonder that Toris motto is Be solar powered. She was born and raised in The Sunshine State of Florida, in the town of Jupiter, at the mouth of the Loxahatchee river. Free time was spent with her twin and younger sisters, splashing in the water or scrambling up the backyard banyan tree. Tori took a hiatus from the water while earning Bachelors degrees in Communications and Fine Arts with concentrations in Journalism and Photography.
But she was soon immersed again. An internship from Perry Institute for Marine Science brought her to a small island in the Exuma Cays. For the next seven seven years she maintained a home there, often hosting graduate students and scientists. She discovered that preparing meals for people with an array of different dietary restrictions in a remote location was a challenge she loved to tackle. Cooking quickly became her passion.
Returning to Jupiter, she joined the team at Little Moir's Food Shack. Their beloved menu of comfort foods using only the freshest ingredients inspired her cooking style. Then she got the call from Captain Adam. She came aboard Rubicon as charter chef, then there was a charter aboard Swish. Next she spent a year and a half as stew/cook on a 106' Westship. But for Tori, being back in the Exumas is being home. As chef aboard Rubicon, she specializes in raw, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. She still loves a challenge. Her other motto: The tighter the diet restrictions, the more fun and creative it becomes in the galley!
