MENUMENU

Meet the Crew

Our crew are very experienced and ready to take you on the adventure of a lifetime. We believe that to effectively run a boat this size, the crew are just as important as the equipment. We have purposely designed the boat so guests can engage in all aspects of the crew’s work.

The open plan Great Room is the perfect example, with the galley, dining room and lower helm all blending into one spacious but intimate setting.
