Santa Claus, Bahamian Style

The 72-foot Sunseeker Eagle II is available for charter at Christmas in Nassau.

Oceanstyle by Burgess says the 72-foot Sunseeker Predator Eagle II has a charter booked out of Nassau, Bahamas, beginning December 26. That means the yacht is still open for a last-minute Christmas booking, for anyone who wants to celebrate the season with some conch fritters and cold Kalik.

Eagle II is a 2012 build that accommodates six guests in three staterooms. Her top speed is about 40 knots, which makes her ideal for zipping to and around the nearby Exumas archipelago. And even given her speed, she was built with noise and vibration reduction in mind, so the ride should be plenty comfortable.

Her captain, Carl Moughan, has long-term charter experience and has spent quite a lot of time scouting out the best Bahamas anchorages.

The holiday weekly base rate to charter Eagle II is $29,000. More information is available at
