Select Yachts has some exciting news to round out the week: The 57-foot Fountaine-Pajot sailing yacht Zimaya is on schedule to launch from the shipyard in October and will be in the Caribbean and available for charters starting December 20.
Itineraries will be available both in the northern Caribbean and in the British Virgin Islands.
Because Zimaya is still under construction, the photograph at right is of a sistership that has similar looks. Ten guests will be accommodated in five staterooms, and the layout is ideal for adult couples who want to charter together, thanks to all the beds being about queen size. Other guest areas include a large salon with 7 feet of headroom, and a popular upper lounge deck where guests can enjoy terrific water views without being in the way of the skipper or crew at the helm.
The crew aboard Zimaya will be Capt. Sheldon Lindsay and chef Vanessa Bush, who won several awards at a recent BVI Charter Yacht Show.
The lowest weekly base rate for charters will be $25,000. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more and help you become one of the first charter guests aboard the sailing catamaran Zimaya.
