Her length of 33.9 m comfortably accommodates six guests in a master and two twin staterooms plus two Pullman berths, with two crew cabins forward accommodating up to three crew. All guest cabins have ensuite heads with full walk-in showers. Separately accessed crew quarters for 3 with head and shower.
The two guest cabins each have a sliding system to enable the beds to be pushed together to form a double. However, in the starboard guest cabin there is a substantial night table/drawer module between the two which would need to be removed. The bunks in the port guest cabin have been successfully combined on several occasions.

The two guest cabins each have a sliding system to enable the beds to be pushed together to form a double. However, in the starboard guest cabin there is a substantial night table/drawer module between the two which would need to be removed. We have not attempted that, but next week I will investigate how much difficulty would be involved. We have successfully combined the bunks in the port guest cabin on several occasions
Inclusions and exclusion are not standardized across the different yachts, with each offering slightly different terms. Please contact us for a proposal that details the yacht’s availability and individual pricing based on the number of guests in your party, as well as the list of the inclusions and exclusions for that particular yacht.
This Yacht offers a “Plus Expenses” Rate:
Included are the Yacht and its onboard equipment as well as the Captain, Chef and Crew’s services.
Excluded are food and beverages, fuel for the yacht and its tender, any dockage, airport transfers costs, onshore excursions and tours, as well as any cruising permits, licenses and other charter related expenses. Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
Our team endeavors to provide up to date and accurate information regarding each yacht in our listing, however some yachts reserve the right to make last minute changes to their availability and rates. With this in mind, please note that premium rates may be attached to certain destinations and dates, such as Christmas and New Years in the Caribbean or July and August in the Mediterranean. Kindly contact us for a proposal that details the yacht’s final rate and availability.
