About this boat

It offers a large open teak deck, comfortable cushioned seating area with roof covering and side screens as well as sunny spacious trampoline areas in the foredeck. Designed as both a live aboard cruising yacht with 2 x 39 Hp Yanmar engines, as well as the ultimate sailing catamaran for day sail excursions. This luxury catamaran is perfect for any occasion from tying the knot with your special person, to yacht parties and corporate functions. Overnight accommodation … after your cruising / sailing experience there is an unique option for staying overnight in the iconic V&A Waterfront, berthed right outside the Victoria and Alfred Hotel on the North Wharf adjacent to the adjacent La Parada Restaurant.
