Our Sailing YACHTS
With the sale of our Bleu Turquoise in the wake of CoViD, we own two boats and each of our sailing yachts been chosen to provide an exceptional level of comfort both at sea and at anchor. Ibis V is our founding boat, and Super Deux Purr is new for 2022. Whilst both are geared towards seaworthiness and comfort, they are very different boats and you may prefer one over the other depending on personal preference.
Please note that Ibis was damaged during Hurricane Irma and is currently undergoing a refit before rejoining our fleet in the Caribbean.
When possible, we sail with two boats together which can make for a lively time at anchor with a guest list of up to 10 and 2 skippers. Christmas in particular, tends to be very busy and we may even hire in an additional boat and skipper – likely my partner, Francois – to satisfy demand.
The final allocation of berths is at the discretion of the Skipper.
Super Deux Purr
Lagoon 400 S2
Super Deux Purr is a capacious 40 footer with four double sized cabins for guest use. Brought into our fleet in May 2022, she has a huge cockpit area for entertaining and easy access to the swim deck.
Fast and comfortable under sail, and roomy at anchor, Super Deux Purr is ideal for those looking for a bit of extra space.
Dufour 48 Prestige – Under Refit
Ibis V has been home to Skipper and founder Sam Bartlett since December 2009. Ibis boasts a new teak deck, luxurious cockpit cushions and a custom galley including a freezer.
She points well into the wind and is a fast boat, loving the sailing conditions found in the Caribbean.
Accommodation for guests is in two twin bunk cabins (ensuite) and two doubles, each with private bathroom.
A More Detailed Comparison of Key Features
|Criteria||Ibis V||Super Deux Purr||What it Means|
|Sail Area, Rig & Weight||Ibis has a large sail area and taller mast.||As with most catamarans, SDP has a large square top battened mainsail and a small gib; all lines are led back to the helm station.||A monohull like Ibis is a more engaging sailing experience than a catamaran – the motion whilst sailing is very different, and it is harder to go to windward on a close haul.|
|Cabins||With a smaller interior volume, the cabins on Ibis are slightly smaller and she has 4 cabins (including two twins) with 3 bathrooms plus a crew cabin forward.||SDP has 4 large double ensuite cabins plus a crew cabin forward.||SDP is better for those who need a bit more cabin space and is ideal for couples.|
|Cockpit||Ibis has a single central wheel and two banquette seats to either side. She has a fold out bathing platform at the stern.||SDP has an offset helm above the cockpit with winches at hand the cockpit and winches are positioned nearby. There is a large cockpit seating area and sun beds either side.||The catamaran is less of a sailing experience and more of a lounging one.|
|General||After 5 years, Ibis has been constantly upgraded to provide a perfect platform for our sailing holidays including a custom galley and new teak decking and cockpit cushions.||Recently acquired, we have a list of upgrades still to do on SDP but these are actively being addressed.||SDP has undergone an extensive refit to meet the needs of Ibis client group.|
