Her facilities on deck are where this boat adds value to any luxury crewed yacht charters in the Caribbean. In the late morning hours, after your luxury breakfast buffet was served, you can enjoy her large foredeck sun cushions while sipping your favourite beverage and discussing the first adventures of the day.  If you will be up for an exhilarating experience, her luxury super yacht tender with a 115hp engine is one of the ways to enjoy the fabulous Caribbean waterways. You can try the waterskiing, wakeboarding and a number of inflatable or towing toys. If you prefer to be below the water, unique seabobs will stand ready for the courages ones.   Kayaks on board, and there are two of them, will provide another type of escape allowing you to explore coastal hideaways or if necessary a deserted beach to call your own. Alternatively, head out to the open sea and enjoy a bit of snorkelling and fishing equipment with the hope to catch a glimpse of something spectacular down below.

For the late afternoons or evenings, her spacious aft deck lounge is perfect for relaxation hours as her plush, upholstered sofas will easily seduce you to enjoy the sunset while drinking one of the freshly made and served original cocktails or snacks and crab specialities prepared by your first class chef and served by the excellent and very friendly stewardess. When the time comes for dining al-fresco, the captain will have already found another spectacular anchorage, well positioned to allow you to profit from the trade wind breezes which usually offer cool refreshment of their owns.
