Nearly every aspect of the boat is powered, and from dropping the anchor to trimming the single-line mainsheet, most tasks can be controlled from dual helm stations aft. In the cockpit, the sailing area is separate from the lounging settees, so it is easily possible to be a passenger riding in style while others do what little work is required to sail the boat.
The cockpit will be the most lived-in space on the boat when cruising in the Caribbean. Aft there is a vast fold-down platform that will be great for swimming, showering and lounging on warm afternoons. Inside the transom, there is a dinghy garage that will house a proper RIB and outboard.
The Jeanneau 64’s interior, designed by Andrew Winch, who’s best known for his superyacht and large private jet interiors, is spacious, bright and functional while offering a high level of fit and style. It’s obvious the moment you step down the companionway steps, from the clean lines of the woodwork, and ample light from the eye-level hull ports, windows, and hatches. Superior quality is also evident on the leather-trimmed hardware and the overall fit and finish of the woodwork.
The wide-open saloon can accommodate a crowd without feeling crowded. The settee is comfortable, and there is plenty of storage space.

Having grown up in St Francis Bay, a thatched village famous for surfing, situated on the south-east coast of South Africa, Amy naturally became a water baby at a young age and developed a deep love and respect for the ocean.
After managing at a golf estate and a high-end restaurant in South Africa Amy found herself longing to be in the kitchen and on the sea.
Growing up around yachts and yacht building she soon found herself on her first Atlantic crossing to the Caribbean. The crossing brought her to the British Virgin Islands where she found a job as a stewardess/deckhand on a 58’ catamaran for the next two years, working alongside and learning from some of the best chefs and captains in the industry.
With her love for the ocean and a deep passion for cooking, she decided to refine her skills through a well renowned Gordon Ramsay affiliated culinary school in South Africa in 2015 and spent the next year running a private yacht as a chef and first mate.
Matko and Amy met through a mutual friend in the Caribbean who spotted the potential dream team, and so it was.
Together they run Bodhisattva with ease, grace and of course plenty of fun. They’ve both a keen eye for detail and strive to go above and beyond the guest's expectations to deliver the highest quality service and create memories to last a lifetime.
