Sailing with catamaran Yemaya makes it possible to go every day to another beautiful, tropical location, where you can explore the island or the dreamlike underwater world. Many islands are uninhabited and of an mindblowing beauty. These islands are surrounded by abundant reefs full of wildlife. But can only be visited by shallow yachts. Big cruise ships can’t reach them, which means these beautiful islands will be kept untouched by mass tourism. Deserted beaches are more the rule than an exception! During the evening you can relax under the star- or moonlit sky and enjoy the sounds of the ocean.

About the yacht Yemaya
Yemaya is a fast sailing catamaran. The boat is designed by Marc van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot-Prevost. Together, they are specialized in racing multihulls designs. Their multihulls became famous and won many victories in races, including the America’s Cup in 2010 and records around the world. In 1994 VPLP designed the racing trimaran made famous by the movie Waterworld starring Kevin Costner. Yemaya is built in 1994 by Tillotson-Pearson in the US. This TPI boat became winner of the “Sailing World Boat of the Year”. In 2015 the yacht has been extensively refitted. She is built and approved with the highest standard for ocean sailing, made for around the world travels.
Yemaya can house maximum 6 guests next to the two crew members. There are three bathrooms. Yemaya also has an outside shower on the swimming platform, where you can rinse of the salt water straight after your swim or snorkeling adventure. The big cockpit is the ideal place to sit and enjoy the sunset with a cocktail or have a delicious meal. On the deck is plenty of room to walk around and the spacious trampolines in front are perfect to lay down lazily with a good book. Because of the numerous hatches in the boat, it is always airy and cool inside without the necessity of an airco. The energy is generated by solar panels and therefore it’s not necessary to run the engine during the evenings so you can enjoy your evenings in silence. Electricity is available in 12V and 220V.
Yemaya doesn’t need a lot of wind to sail. Unlike many other charters we are real sailors and like to sail whatever possible! Sailing on a catamaran is a lot more comfortable than on a mono hull. The movements are less intense and people tend to adapt to these movements more easily. Therefore seasickness is less common. On the anchorages catamarans are a lot more stable as well. This makes your stay more pleasurable, for instance while having diner and during the night.
