About Luxury Sailing Yacht MALINKA:
SY MALINKA, is a stunningly beautiful Luxury sailing boat, a genuine classic ketch by now. Built from GRP materials by the famous finish shipyard Swan, she is equipped and crewed by sailing enthusiasts.  
As a genuine modern Luxury charter yacht offering relaxing yet adventurous yacht charter experiences throughout Atlantic ocean, she is now available alongside western coast of Greenland, the ultimate remote sailing area for only the most distinguished yacht charter clientele. With an interior that features finest of furnishings, portholes out of bronze and detailed marquetry you can also rest assured that when retiring from all the sights and sounds of Danish northern territory, you will also be able to retire to surroundings that will take you decades back and allow you to have the best dream of your life. Her unique hull design is providing ideal layout for pleasant motion under regular East Caribbean trade winds and sea swells and for adult couples or grown up children amongst the guests, she will prove to be a perfect choice and atmosphere during your next luxury sailing adventure. In fact the crew and the owner prefer to have adult guests on board not only because the yachts layout and interior is design by a professional yachtee for yacht connoisseurs but simply because in this set up the children may be better off on another, more luxurious and modern boat. Namely, on board of SY MALINKA the guests will find plenty of nautical equipment, sailing gear and relevant decorations that correspond to owners membership at New York Yacht Club but items such as SAT TV, PS3 or even iPod dock are unlikely to feature any time soon. This boat is therefore for genuine admirers of the classic Sparkman & Stephens design of a fast performance sailing boat, active sailing experiences on a yacht with genuine sailing berths, and traditional luxury surroundings complimented with an enthusiastic crew keen on sailing, rather than a modern cruiser family looking for ultimate luxury at sea.

The interior is made of a nautical woodwork and warmed up by rich leather upholstery and fine oil paintings with nautical themes throughout. Comfortable sitting and dining areas amidships provides ultimate space for daily gatherings and formal dinners when the guests like to retire from the exhausting day of active sailing. On deck, the cushioned sun deck is likely to be the most popular spot for relaxation and sunbathing, especially before or after exhilarating race from one Caribbean Island to the other or once the water toys have been used to a full extent.

Luxury Sailing Yacht MALINKA can accommodate up to 6 yacht charter guests in 3 luxuriously appointed en-suite cabins. The guests will have a total of 1 double and 2 single bunk cabins at their disposal. The full beam master cabin with extra headroom, has two large 80’’ single beds to port and starboard with a large el. Head in en-suite with separate shower as well as a nice office/study area. The port and starboard midshp guest cabins have upper and lower single bunk beds, both 77’’ long. All cabins have their own individual air con and audio-video entertainment systems etc.
