REFIT TO PLEASE:
The current owner of Sunshine has a long history in the real-estate business. She used her network of suppliers to renovate the 1986 build, then bought every toy she could find to keep her grandkids happy.
17 KNOTS OF FUN:
Sunday Money cruises at a good clip, which is ideal for exploring the Bahamas on her tested, Jack Hargrave-designed hull. She was built in 2001 and updated in 2012, including the installation of a new audiovisual system.
Loose Ends has a family-friendly layout. She can accommodate eight guests in four staterooms, including the roomy master (shown at right) and a main-deck VIP stateroom for friends.
Knot Tide is a flybridge design, which is great for charters in the Bahamas. From that vantage point — protected from the sun by the hardtop — the views of the aquamarine water and coral reefs below are truly spectacular.
THIS SUMMER IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC
These charter yachts are available in the South Pacific this summer.
Three charter catamarans in the Virgin Islands go by the name Xenia: a 50-footer, a 62-footer and the 74-footer at right. All have the same owner, who upgrades them constantly with a goal of making them the finest options in the archipelago.
The owner of Katya upgraded her outdoor spaces last year, including adding new sofas and umbrellas to the aft section of the sun deck. Inside, upgrades included adding iPad controls for all of the audio-visual systems.
COSTA RICA AND PANAMA:
Starting this May, Seven Sins is expected to be open for charter in Central America. After that, she will make her way to Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
The newly converted Legend is bound for Greenland this summer. She will offer heli-skiing packages that include all gear and guides. Don’t feel like skiing? Take the submarine out for a look below the ice.
PREPARE TO FEAST:
Chef Ben Dineen aboard Lady J took first prize in the yacht’s size range at the recent Antigua Charter Yacht Show culinary competition. If you book a week aboard, ask for his lobster in Thai broth. He spent time training with a master chef in Asia.
