More news now from Mark Duncan at Yachting Partners as he tells me that they've signed the 25m sailing yacht Velacarina for charter.
Built by Claasen Jachtbouw in 2005 as the first in the Andre Hoek Design Truly Classic 85 series, she has a sweeping flush deck and a large deck saloon. This area is a much-appreciated feature of the Truly Classic series; meals and drinks can be served in the shelter of the deck house where guests can enjoy the beautiful scenery in comfort, even in adverse weather.
All cabins, the salon and the galley have hull portholes, creating a light, bright interior. In addition she has a transom that can drop to create perfect access to the water and the tender. Sleeping four guests in two double cabins, her racing green hull and traditional interior make her another Truly Classic jewel in this ever growing series of world-class sailing yachts.
Velacarina is the perfect yacht for island-hopping in the Caribbean this winter and is now available for bookings from $35,000 per week.
