The fantastic dive-centric LOON has been renamed motor yacht ZEAL and is inviting groups to join her on a lavish winter Caribbean & Bahamas charter.
The exceptional crew is the highlight of a cruise with M/Y ZEAL, with two Dive Masters and Dive Instructors among the crew, two kite surfer instructors, and the chief stewardess was a women’s pro tour surfer. Wherever your itinerary takes you, there will be plenty of opportunities to pick up a new skill or improve on what you’ve already learnt, and divers that have already earned their internationally-recognised license will be able to dive straight off the yacht.
The minimalist interior styling is suited to all charter purposes, from laid-back family holidays, catch-ups and shopping sprees with friends, birthdays, weddings and even corporate events. Gather together in the main salon and plan your exploits for the day, or take in the views from the light and airy sky lounge.
Outside, there are numerous spots for guests to unwind in the shade or savour the sunshine: The sundeck is the hub for life outdoors, with an alfresco dining and lounging area in the shade, a wet bar and barbeque grill, plush sunbeds and a Jacuzzi to soak your cares away while admiring the Bight of Acklins or the white cliffs of Long Island.
The large swim platform is perfect for sunbathing or sitting beside the clear blue waters, with direct access to the sea pool and much more. There are few luxury yachts that have such a large and exceptional range of water toys, and in addition to the Scuba diving equipment there are:
- 4 x Waverunners
- 2 x Seabobs (FS2)
- 2 x kayaks
- 2 x paddleboards
- 1 x lift foil
- 1 x wakeboard
- beach games and setup
- water skis
- an 8.2m/27ft waterslide
- a 9.1m/30ft swimming pool
- kite surfing equipment
- fishing gear, and
- inflatable and towable toys
The gym equipment consists of resistance bands, yoga mats and barbells for maintaining a fitness regime while cruising.
The accommodation sleeps a total of 12 guests over 6 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite, 2 double cabins and 3 twin cabins convertible to king-sized beds. All cabins are well-furnished for the comfort of guests, however, the Master suite on the main deck forward is the most desirable for its full-beam bedroom with lounge setting, and en-suite bathroom with a bathtub as well as a shower.
M/Y ZEAL has a top speed of 16 knots, a cruising speed of 13 knots and an extensive cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles, so you won’t have to stop often to resupply and can cruise off to the far islands of the Bahamas.
