The annual winter charter season is fast approaching, and the 116-foot Leight-Notika Phoenix has just announced availability in Central America — a destination that is rarely advertised for crewed yacht charter at all.

Phoenix is a 2003 build that was most recently updated this year. She accommodates as many as nine guests in four cabins, two full-beam with double beds and two with twin beds—an ideal arrangement for a pair of families who want to charter together. (The ninth guest can be accommodated in a Pullman berth in one of the twin cabins. Can you say kids' room?)

In addition to availability in Central America, Phoenix also is accepting winter inquiries for the Caribbean.

The weekly base rate to charter Phoenix this winter is $77,000. Learn more at www.oceanindependence.com.
