Charter Yacht Promenade Cabin Cruise Week: 2015 February 21-28

The charter yacht Promenade (65-foot trimaran) has only ONE remaining cabin available for their cabin cruise week of February 21-28, 2015. This is a great way to experience a charter on Promenade without having to get a group together.

Trimaran Promenade - Crewed Sailing and Scuba Diving Yacht Charters

This is the only charter-by-the-cabin week that Promenade has scheduled for 2015.  They are very popular so don't delay... Contact us ASAP.

  • DATES: February 21-28, 2014, British Virgin Islands
  • RATE: $4100/cabin for 2 people (NOT per person... ie, $2050/person, double occupancy)

Excludes: Transportation to and from the yacht, including plane and taxi fares. Crew gratuities which are at your discretion but typically 15% of charter fee. Any meals and beverages you choose to have on shore. You will be responsible for one dinner ashore at your own expense.

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.

Promenade has a 15-foot dinghy with 50HP motor, waterskis, kneeboard, wakeboard, tube, 2-person kayak, paddleboard on request, 4 water individual power loungers, snorkel gear, fishing equipment (has commercial BVI fishing license), TV/DVD, iPod dock, wifi, and much more!

If this cabin cruise week is of interest, don't wait! We are actively trying to book her up and it would be a shame for you to miss this once-a-season opportunity for 2015.

I recently spent 5 nights aboard Promenade (aft Queen cabin) while attending the November Tortola and St Thomas Charter Yacht Shows. I found the boat very comfortable and the crew very hospitable. I had an excellent experience and a wonderful time. Love their homemade ice cream! Promenade is one of our favorite charter yachts.
