For transport on our trip, we use French Nautitech 44-foot-long catamarans. On this type there are four cabins, two dining rooms, a kitchen and plenty of room for our travellers to move around in comfort. In the cabins, three have double beds, and one has a double bed and a single bed. The three-man crew in general sleeps in the skipper cabin or up on deck. Due to the dimensions of the boat people taller than 1,90 metres (6 feet 3 inches) or with extensive weight problem might need more patience to adjust to the conditions.
In three cabins there are double beds, and in one of the three a double bed and a single bed is available. The three-man crew generally sleeps in cabins on deck or the captain – with the exception of trips to the closest islands – in a hammock.
Through the panoramic windows of the catamaran’s main saloon the view is wonderful, and brings in lots of light. There are seating places in the area open to the sun and in the covered area at the back also, so that it is possible for all the passengers to enjoy a meal at the same time (the crew does not eat at the same time) The kitchen is fully equipped with two fridges, a freezer, an oven, a microwave oven, coffee-maker, and stainless steel utensils.
Ensuring our guests’ complete relaxation was our overriding goal in designing the fitting out of the boat. We provide the sea kayaks, the angling & fishing equipment, the snorkelling gear, beachballs, hammocks and – if requested – diving equipment for exploring the deeper waters of this gorgeous environment. Naturally, the boat comes with a small motor boat or dinghy, which helps when it is not possible to sail close enough to moor to a jetty.
Photographs can be found on the illustrations page, but there are possible variations and differences from the decor and fitting of the boat shown there and the boat we use. If these boats are not available, we will of course arrange equally-equipped boats of the same standard.
