The Yacht

Picture of "Sea Melody"

Carver 400 cockpit motor yacht

The Yacht is the Sea Melody. It is a 40 foot Carver Motor Yacht powered by twin Cummings 315 horsepower diesel engines. It is equipped with a Westerbeke Generator for continuous electrical power. It offers a forward guest cabin with head. The cabin provides a closet and four drawers for storage as well as two compartments under each mattress for additional gear. See the pictures on the photo gallery page. This vessel is ideal for a cruise of two people plus crew as more than that will limit the freedom and comfort on the cruise.The vessel will cruise at 18-22 knots allowing for faster arrival times. It can handle most seas but as you are probably aware, mother nature is not always nice, so if the seas are not cooperating, we will not put you at risk of danger.

The vessel is equipped with a full galley, TV, Radio, aft deck, foredeck, flybridge and large swim platform. These amenities allow for an enjoyable weekend cruise. HOWEVER, please remember, this is not a cruise ship. It is not spacious, luxurious or designed to pamper you with spas, fancy restaurants and constant entertainment. This yacht is designed to provide you an adventure on the sea to exotic places. You will not be roughing it, but it is a 40 foot yacht so please understand the limitations. We will need your help casting off, docking, maneuvering, anchoring etc. You will be part of the crew to that extent. We will handle the cleaning, washing and maintenance but you will be involved in the outing.

Food will be a mix of on board cooking, carry out and dining at restaurants at the various ports we come to. We will discuss this issue in more detail during the planning stages of the process.

This vessel is our personal yacht therefore it is kept in perfect condition. Because it is our personal vessel, we can charge less than other companies since we do not have to maintain a fleet of yachts and cover the cost of vessels that are not in charter 100% if the time.
