With the first edition of the Between the Bays superyacht gathering right around the corner, we shine a light on the yachts joining BOAT International and Belmond for a four-day itinerary between two of Belmond’s finest properties – Cap Juluca in Anguilla and La Samanna in Saint Martin.
Claasen sailing yacht Atalante was delivered to an experienced yachtsman in 2015 as the flagship of the Hoek-designed Truly Classic range. Her aluminium hull, deep-draught keel, 3Di sails, carbon rigging and cable steering make her a force to be reckoned with on the racing circuit, while twin deckhouses, teak capping rails and classic lines pay tribute to yachts of yore. An atypical layout sees the owner’s cabin linked to both the keyhole-shaped navigation cockpit aft and a full-beam lower saloon.
Seven Sins was brought to life by a group of four friends, together with Sanlorenzo and Officina Italiana Design. She was delivered as the first hull in the shipyard's 52Steel series and is packed with a number of big boat features, including a float-in tender garage that transforms into a beach club with a teak-soled section that lowers from overhead. Fold-down bulwarks create two sea terraces, while a glass-bottom pool on the main deck casts a dappled light on the waterside lounge below.
Untethered was delivered to her American owners in 2019 as the third unit in Horizon's FD102 series. She is one of the highest-specced models on the water with over 80 different customisations, including a water-cooled Magnus frequency converter power system and custom Tilse heated helm windows. Other features include a metallic grey hull with a fire pit and an enclosed sky lounge finished in the style of a "gentleman's club".
Enterprise is one of the latest launches from Baglietto, designed, built and delivered in less than three years. The owner liked the look of explorers, so the design team at Francesco Paszkowski worked to create a profile rooted in long-distance passages and ambitious itineraries but destined for warm-water cruising. The sundeck accounts for more than half of the yacht’s exterior area and extends further aft than perhaps usual. At its centre is a raised, glass-sided spa pool with aquamarine mosaic tiles. Enterprise's 170 square metres of outdoor entertaining space will no doubt come into its own at Between the Bays.
Nostromo was launched in summer 2009 as the eighth yacht to be built by Pendennis from the drawing boards of Dubois Naval Architects. She was commissioned by an English industrialist and experienced sailor who felt it right to seek out a British boatbuilder – and so Pendennis was a natural choice for his 30-metre build. She was conceived as a family-friendly superyacht but one that can offer high performance under sail.
The custom-built Ingot is the result of a partnership between the Burger shipyard in America and design studio Vripack in the Netherlands. Her interior is finished in rich mahogany with white onyx ceiling panes, maple burl accents and bathrooms finished in iridescent Capiz shells. An elevator serves all three decks from the lower guest accommodation up to the sundeck where a raised spa pool and curved bar are at the disposal of guests.
Builder: Alloy Yachts
Red Dragon is a fast cruising sloop built by Alloy Yachts in 2008 and the second design by Dubois set to attend Between the Bays. She is the culmination of experience gained by the owner aboard his previous Red Dragon, a smaller sloop built by Vitters, and is finished in anthracite grey. Highlights include a drop-down transom with a pop-up shower, sunpads integrated into the aft deck and shading dining offered beneath the overhand of the flybridge.
Builder: Custom Line
Eros, named after the ancient Greek god of love, will be attending Between the Bays following a change in ownership last year. The Navetta 37 is the former flagship model of Ferretti Group brand Custom Line and saw the shipyard team up with long-trusted ally Zuccon International Project to create an all-new semi-displacement line. Eros, originally launched as Dilly Dally, was the sixth in the series.Read More/Itinerary: Between the Bays in Anguilla and St Martin
