Yacht Description

The finest cruising experience yet imagined, BAMARANDI, elevates the enjoyment of a floating holiday to new heights. A Victoria 67, newly built and launched in 2015, she’s the newest addition to Fountaine Pajot’s Flagship fleet – their top-of-the-line luxury cruising cats. She’s sleek, elegant, and extremely spacious with an overall length of 67 feet and beam of 31 feet – truly, the ultimate in cruising comfort.

The popular flybridge concept has been expanded on this yacht to a state nothing short of magnificence. It is accessed from the cockpit with stairs on both sides that are highly secure. The 2-person helm, offset to starboard, provides the captain excellent visibility and easy access to winches, sheets, sails and traveler to ease the work of sailing. For guests aboard who have come to relax, the seating area is incredibly comfortable with benches, side tables, a relaxing sofa, and the convenience of a refrigerator and sink. The rise & fall tables can also be used for dining, making this a highly usable area not usually found on an FP 67. A large bimini provides an area of escape from the sun for those who want some shade and there is integrated lighting for evening cocktails. Additional side and rear covers can be used to block the wind for dining if desired, and of course, the large double lounge cushion for sun bathing make this a highly desirable space for the ultimate in relaxation, all enjoyed with awesome views of the surrounding scenery.

The large aft deck is shaded by the flybridge overhead and provides additional comfortable lounging spaces, as well as an elegant setting for formal dining. Three large sumptuous double pads are optimal for sunbathing or relaxing. A projector and large cinema screen can be viewed inside from the cockpit or salon.

Step into the saloon which features urban chic décor with gorgeous white leather upholstery, and lots of space for comfortable entertaining in air-conditioned comfort if so desired. The large relaxing seating area has an electric rise and fall coffee / dining table providing an additional option. The open galley is equipped with state of the art appliances, Wedgewood china, extensive crystal glassware, and Studio William cutlery – as used in many Michelin * restaurants and at 10 Downing Street!

Accommodation for 10 guests in 5 en-suite cabins: 1 King, 3 Queens, 1 Twin. Each cabin has independent A/C, Samsung LED flatscreen TV and Sonos music system with access to the onboard server film library of over 300 films, 2 Bluetooth headphones for late night film viewing, tablet loaded with books and games, high quality bed linens and Bamarandi-branded towel sets including nice thick beach towels. The very large master cabin also has a desk / dressing table and dressing area. Both the master and the salon have direct connection to the Direct TV satellite system.

The only way to improve on such a fabulous yacht is with an outstanding crew and BAMARANDI delivers there too. Captain & Chef Donald and Audrey Harper have established themselves as one of the top crews in the Caribbean charter market, evidenced by a long list of charter yacht show awards (Best of Show, Eco-Friendly, Culinary competitions), as well as many excellent comments from their guests. Audrey wowed the 2015 Antigua Show judges placing 3rd in the Chef Competition, and another award for table settings. This year they are joined by Tristan Spanier-Marson as deckhand and steward.

BAMARANDI is equipped with a large array of water toys including, snorkel gear, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards/windsurfers, wakeboard, adult and children’s waterskis and wakeboards, Zup board, a range of towable inflatables, plus a 50hp tender for towing. For guests interested in scuba diving, you won’t find a better choice than BAMARANDI as she offers a premium dive experience with a complete assortment of top-of-the-line equipment and accessories. (See specs for details.) Captain Donald is a licensed PADI Dive Instructor and loves to share his passion for diving and favorite local dive spots with guests.

If you’re wondering if there is a special meaning to the name BAMARANDI, there is indeed – it’s the name of a very special Captain’s Cocktail unique to this yacht. You will have to come aboard to taste and experience for yourself.
