Sunsets come in all colours, from the pale pink fingers creeping across the sky to the blood red stand out statements, lilacs and silver slivers of moon and the blazing fiery orange. Capturing the moment the sun starts her descent can be a magical moment especially from out in the waters aboard your Quadski. Once the sun hits the water, head towards your luxury superyacht for an evening of pure indulgence. The Quadski is a personal watercraft that combines the design of a jet ski with an ATV land vehicle. The innovative style, BMW engine and quick switch wheel retraction make it a must have luxury toy of the year. Cruising the Mediterranean sea on a Quadski while enjoying your Mediterranean yacht charter holiday just before sunset is simply a picture perfect way to finish off the day.
