The 33-metre luxury sailing yacht combines modern performance standards and classic grace. Designed by Andre Hoek and built by Claasen in 1999, she underwent a major refit in 2008. Constructed in aluminium, her lifting keel allows entry into shallow harbours and secluded bays where other yachts of her size cannot venture. Charter guests can enjoy four double staterooms, all with ensuites. One stateroom converts to a twin for added flexibility for families or odd number parties. Guests can dine in the raised pilothouse and enjoy the panoramic views while still in the comfort of the yacht’s interior or there is a large table in the main cockpit for alfresco dining.
