Here’s an interesting way to kick off the week: Regency Yacht Charters says the 59- and 44-foot Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans Slivochka and Dolphin Splash are offering tandem bookings in the British Virgin Islands, accommodating a total of 14 guests at a weekly base rate of $42,500.
According to Regency, the captains of these yachts got the idea after spending time working together on repairs after last year’s devastating hurricane season. The crew are longtime friends, too, and work together well.
Thus, the idea was conceived: “We want to offer a unique formula, under one company with two yachts and crew that work well together and are genuine friends and respected colleagues. Double the amenities among the yachts.”
Guests will be able to move from one yacht to the other for whatever menu suits their fancy on any given day. Adults can dine on one yacht while kids dine on another. Course racing can be set up, with guests switching teams from day to day as they please.
And, everybody gets to use all the toys. That means an eight-person tender, a six-person tender, scuba gear (and three dive masters among the crew), wakeboards, kneeboards, water skis, inflatable tow toys, fishing gear, underwater photography gear, kayaks, standup paddleboards and more.
Dates are available for the tandem bookings this winter in the Virgin Islands.
