The yacht is a beautifully kept schooner built as a working fishing vessel in Holland in 1910. She has since been refitted in Italy and now accommodates up to six people in luxurious surroundings. Those with previous sailing experience can help sail, and those without can learn if they wish, or simply allow the friendly and experienced crew to do the sailing while you lie back, relax and enjoy the view. You can also try your hand at fishing for big game fish such as tuna, barracuda, or sailfish. There is ample space on deck for reading or simply relaxing in the sun, and the lovely wooden cabins and galley are very comfortable.
The catamaran truly is a modern comfortable 'lounge boat'. There is plenty of deck space for relaxing and sunbathing, a well-equipped galley and living area and comfortable cabins below. You are encouraged to help sail, or learn to sail if you wish. There are several attractive islands just of the coast of Dar which can be navigated in a day.

Have lunch on a sand bank exposed only at high tide - you, your partner or friends, and a delicious lunch, isolated in the middle of the Indian Ocean! Go snorkelling around the reefs of Bongoyo Island or try your hand at fishing for your dinner!
