BUNDALONG Yacht Charter Catamaran
Like many Sunreef yachts, Bundalong features a complete in-house design from the Polish shipyard. Boasting five deluxe ensuite guest cabins, Bundalong has the space to host up to 10 guests onboard in style. Guests can choose among two VIP cabins, two doubles, and one twin/convertible cabin. The seller of the boat designed her with an upscale "Hamptons" style beach house feel that is both inviting and luxurious. All cabins have large living spaces and high-end finishes with large in-hull windows. The custom interior accommodation areas are finished in a plush but homely feel and is very light and bright. The main saloon is open with full-height surround windows and high ceilings, complete with comfortable sofas for cooling off in the air conditioning. Forward in the saloon is the galley and bar where you can prepare food and enjoy tea or coffee service while taking in the oncoming view. Outside, the aft of the yacht features a breathtaking al fresco dining area and a bar overlooking the tender lift which can act as a swimming island once the tender is launched. The very private foredeck lounge and coffee table entertaining area is the perfect place for a sun-downer, especially if stern-to in a marina or even when underway under sail! Enjoy the entertainment facilities on the flybridge, including a wet bar, barbecue, and dining table. The entire space has a composite hardtop for weather protection with comfortable lighting. Bundalong is setup with blue water sailing in mind and has everything you need to visit the far corners of the world without sacrificing comfort. Bundalong is derived from an Aboriginal word that means "join together" and that is just the experience you will have on board!

Brad started his sailing career when he was 10 years old. He didn't realize that it was going to be a way of life at that age but has made his way around the world sailing and working on various type of sailboats, ships, yachts. Growing up racing sailboats on a national level, he quickly moved up the leader board. Racing on the Varsity Team at Texas A&M at Galveston, he secured a Sloop National Championship, and was a podium finisher at numerous National Events. Outside of college sailing, he has been involved in multiple JBoat World Championship campaigns, Olympic class Regattas and qualifiers (Laser Class), many National Championship's (dinghy's and keelboats), offshore big boat racing (including a Traspac), and still loves to take a sunfish out on a Sunday Afternoon.
After a taking sabbatical he attended the Merchant Marine Academy, obtaining a Merchant Mariners Officers License, where he began working on commercial ships. Having completed a few Pacific crossings on cargo vessels, he realized he belonged back on the sunnier side of the industry- sailing vessels and private yachts. Since then, he has worked on private yachts and sailboats, the latest ones being on AD ASTRA, a 55ft catamaran, where he ran surf charters off of the Pacific side of Nicaragua for two years
Safety culture is second nature to him and you will feel comfortable and confident as you cruise the islands with Brad, he is currently an active Navy Reserve Lt. Brad has also spent years teaching and coaching sailing, and loves to share his knowledge to all of his guests, so feel free to get some sailing lessons while you are onboard!
When not on a boat, you can find him Kitesurfing, Surfing, diving (PADI certified), fishing, and spearfishing. If you catch him on land, he loves to ride motorcycles, bicycles, and enjoys to stay healthy, active, being surrounded by good music, people, and dogs!

Being born and raised on the Maine coast, Cameron (Cam) is no stranger to the ocean. She grew up on the salt water, exploring Casco Bay and the Downeast islands on small sailboats. After spending many winters in the dark and cold, however, she decided to opt for more of a permanent summer lifestyle. She joined the yachting industry two years ago to pursue her love of travel and the sea. This led her to several jobs as a deckhand on board some of the largest motor yachts- traveling throughout South Florida, Bahamas, Caribbean, and Central America. It was then that a spontaneous sail trip aboard a very small boat around the Leeward Islands that she was hooked. Cameron is excited to utilize her deck and high end service experience to provide the smoothest and happiest experience for the guests. Besides that, she could spend all day at the beach surfing, diving, swimming, or any other adventure that presents itself. She believes that life is too short not to enjoy and so far this industry has combined her spirit for adventure with an unforgettable career. Oh, and if you need a backflip lesson or want to practice speaking Spanish... Just ask her!

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.
