Customize your vacation by choosing the sailing yacht that suits your individual needs. A “monohull” offers an exciting “tilt with the wind” sailing experience, while a “dual hull catamaran” has more spacious common areas and a flat, smoother voyage. Other considerations include the number and size of sleeping areas, heads (bathrooms), and amenities from sun decks to galley size. The photos of yachts below are examples of possibilities. There are a wide variety of floor plans, privacy considerations and budget, with sizes depending upon the number in your group, from two to eight guests plus your captain/crew/chef.
Every boater’s choice for level cruise and the most spacious sunbathing decks, the Lagoon 52F features four huge common areas. The aft cockpit offers comfortable group dining. For warm winds visit the forward cockpit. The upper helm chaise-lounge features panoramic views, and the salon has ample seating and galley.
Each cabin enjoys a private head (bathroom), individual climate controls, and opening hatches for fresh air flow. Enjoy reading lights, overhead lighting, and USB ports. A full sheet set, pillows, and decadent “Beach Castle Sweets” chocolates greet you to your floating home!
The sailing vessel offers the perfect balance of features, accommodations and size. Each cabin features a berth for two, ensuite heads (bathrooms) for some, the other head shared. Pricing is adjusted for your preference. For your convenience, the ports (windows) open for fresh air, enjoy reading lights, overhead lighting and USB ports for charging. Full sheet set, pillows and special Beach Castle Sweets handmade chocolates will help greet you to your floating home!
The roomy cockpit has seating for eight guests. She has a canvas dodger and a bimini (awning), which provides protection from the elements yet still allows you to experience the scenic wonders unhindered. The spacious fore-deck also offers abundant room to stretch out and bask in the sun. Her step-through transom allows easy access to the swim step from which you’ll board her kayaks or her motorized launch with which you’ll be whisked ashore for a little hiking or beachcombing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What to bring
The vessel will supply galley supplies, soap for showers, towels, complete sheet sets, and duvet bed coverings. Evenings or stronger winds may require a jacket (dependent on climate). Dress casual, in layers, as you would for a hike or long walk. Sunscreen, water bottle, water tolerant footwear, and swimwear, as needed for sailing destination. Ask in advance about internet or phone access. Sometimes it’s just good to be “off the grid”!
2. How to provision
Captain Mark is an excellent resource for provisioning/catering. Experienced enough to do it himself, he can take over for you, or advise you on what to bring. If you wish, you can shop yourself and supply the vessel with your favorites, or sample local produce from nearby stores and markets. In addition, you can cook or allow the crew to handle the meals. Ask about purchasing your own “adult beverages” or request a supply for your cruise.
3. Choose your participation level
This might help you decide how you would like to engage in your upcoming voyage! A professional captain offers options to assist in the cruise as much or as little as you wish. Decide how much you want to learn from this trip.
Grow your confidence on a teaching skippered yacht charter. Ease into proficiency with professional guidance. A skippered vessel provides lessons without pressure.
An intense desire to visit exotic, and perhaps difficult destinations by sea, but not experienced enough to captain a vessel.
While wanting to occasionally take the helm, you’d also like sometimes to relax with friends and family. Skippering is a 24-hour responsibility!
Sailors without Bareboat Certification
Some destinations require a particular “Bareboat” license, (especially the Mediterranean). Sail your destination on a skippered charter while learning enough to do it yourself next time.
Visiting a new destination requires experience with each cruising area. Challenging wind systems and navigation are different everywhere you go. Explore new locales without stress.
