    Charter Yacht Promenade Cabin Cruise Week 2011

    The Sail Dive Charter Yacht Promenade has scheduled a cabin cruise week for 2011.

    Kerry plans to only offer one of these charter-by-the-cabin weeks for 2011.  They are very popular so don't delay... Contact us ASAP.
    Promenade at anchor --- Fishing --- Hiking

    Diving --- Ride the Banana --- Chill on the Power Lounger


    This is an excellent way for a couple to charter a large, fun boat with all the toys, diving AND fishing, instead of trying to put together a group with 8 other people :)

    One thing different about this year's cabin charter week is that you have your choice of booking either SIX or TEN nights aboard, plus a FREE sleepaboard if you wish.

    DETAILS:
    • Six nights: February 13-19, 2011
    • Ten nights: February 13-23, 2011
    • Saturday, February 12: Complimentary sleep over if desired. Boarding after 4 PM, in Roadtown, Tortola. No services included (ie, dinner and breakfast on shore).
    Includes: All meals aboard and ship's standard bar, cruising taxes, port taxes, overnight air conditioning and all on board ship's toys. This will include SCUBA diving for any CERTIFIED divers on a casual basis. Breakfast is a casual affair on board.

    Excludes: Transportation to and from the yacht, including plane and taxi fares. Any meals and beverages you choose to have on shore. You will be responsible for one dinner ashore on the ten night package only. BC and Regulator rental if needed at $150 for the charter period per person. Crew gratuities for cabana boys!

    6-night pricing:
    • $3500/cabin for 2 people (not per person... $1750/person, double occupancy)
    • $3000/cabin for 1 person (single occupancy)
    • $1700 for someone willing to share a cabin with someone else. You may luck out and get it to yourself, but then again, you may not. This is for one of the aft twin/king cabins.
    10-night pricing:
    • $5500/cabin for 2 people (not per person... $2750/person, double occupancy)
    • $4800/cabin for 1 person (single occupancy)
    • $2700 for someone willing to share

    Promenade is a fully air conditioned, 65-foot trimaran with a beam of 35 feet, that accommodates up to 10 guests in five cabins. The two forward cabins are Queens and each have private, ensuite head/shower. The aftmost center cabin is a Queen, while the port and starboard aft cabins can be configured as either twins or a king.  The aft 3 cabins share 2 heads/showers.

    AVAILABILITY:
    • As of August 15, 2010:  3 cabins open (forward starboard & aft queen booked)

    Promenade is still available for CHRISTMAS (through the morning of December 27, 2010)

    Drumbeat wins BVI Stamp Contest

    We asked Drumbeat if they had any news to share with our readers:

    Hi Sheila & Bob

    Actually yes... something has happened! My BVI stamp finally came out.

    Two years ago, the BVI Reef Society held a photo contest for the new BVI postage stamps. I submitted a picture that I took of a turtle, along with several others, and my turtle won! They did a series of five stamps and my photo was picked for one of them...

    Woo Hoo!

    Linda
    Congratulations, Linda.  That is quite an honor! I bet you are sending lots of BVI postcards :)

    Here's a link for info about the British Virgin Islands Coral Reef Stamp Collection series.

    DRUMBEAT is a 72-foot Irwin ketch with a crew of three.  Our clients love Vincent, Linda, and Kirk. Vincent is a dive instructor and five dives per week with gear are included for certified divers, and a Resort/Discover Scuba course is also included for non-certified divers... so, give it a try! Drumbeat is fully air conditioned and accommodates up to 8 guests in 4 double cabins.
