This week's PROMENADE charter

We have a family aboard the 65-foot trimaran PROMENADE this week and we have received some wonderful photos.

SAIL / DIVE Trimaran PROMENADE in the BVIs with ParadiseConnections.com
The even had the spinnaker up!

Beautiful photo of an octopus, Rich!

Cool squid, Rich!

Not sure what type of fish this is but it is another great picture.

Promenade is one of our favorite and popular dive charter boats. But it's OK if you don't want to dive as they are a great boat for friends and families that aren't divers. Lots of space and lots to do!

If you are interested in chartering Promenade, don't hesitate. They might have a bit of summer availability (we'd have to ask Kerry) and their calendar for next season is really filling up quickly.

Promenade still has cabins open for BVI Wreck Week October 26th through Nov 1st, 2008!

Here are a couple of nifty things that might be good to add to a yachts "toy" arsenal... A Horse Simulator, and the BBQ Donut!

Some megayachts have grand pianos, small cinemas, helipads, submarines, impressive art collections, recording studios, workout gyms, but so far I have not seen stables aboard for horseback riding. So, how about this?

Horse simulator

The Ridemaster Pro made by Racewood Simulators. Be the first on your block to have one... or two :) This would really cause a sensation at the next charter yacht show and make your boat very memorable to the charter yacht brokers...
The £40,000 virtual reality riding machine combines a mechanical horse with a host of electronic sensors and a screen, to recreate the joys of an outdoor ride without the need for mucking out.
Here's the link to the TELEGRAPH's article: CLICK HERE

Here's another cool item that we saw last month in the Lagoon just inside of Marigot, St. Martin: The BBQ Donut.

BBQ Donut

You can just see the outboard behind the support for the beach umbrella. Perhaps you can use the umbrella as a sail. Have it be a riding sail so the "bow" of the donut is facing into the wind so the smoke from the central BBQ is always blowing "aft". Can you have a bow on a round raft???

I think this would be the perfect complement to the Sail Dive Charter Trimaran PROMENADE, whose "Power Lounger" was the hit of last November's St. Thomas Charter Yacht Show.

Promenades Power Lounger

Just raft those two babies together and you have the makings of an unforgettable party!
