One mile at a time, we are realising our dream of exploring and enjoying the most beautiful parts this world has to offer with our yacht.
Dennis purchased this beneteau first in April of 2009, which was designed by the master of fast hull designs: Bruce Farr. It is not only designed for advanced performance, it also offers a luxurious interior accommodation.
From December through May we are stationed in the Eastern Caribbean, mainly exploring the 32 islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines that offer endless cruising possibilities including the major sailing destinations: Bequia, Mustique, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Union Island, Palm Island and Petit Saint Vincent. We look forward to welcoming you on board, creating an itinerary that meets your wishes and sharing our passion for sailing, nature, wildlife and "fair" food.
