Yacht Description

The Fuerte 3 is the perfect family craft with its multiple berths, expansive indoor and outdoor seating areas and an expert crew. Four separate cabins sleep up to nine guests, with three of those bunks accommodating children or shorter passengers. The Fuerte 3 was fully refitted in 2014, which means you will enjoy new upholstery throughout the craft, as well as many other upgrades.

There is ample sleeping space for the whole family aboard in the multiple suites with private bathrooms. Two rooms have king beds, one a queen, and the last can host three children in the cozy 71 inch bunks. Each room boasts its own shower and private bathroom. There is ample space throughout the craft for group activities as well as personal time.

Below deck, a spacious living/dining room combo offers enough room for enjoying meals, games and a break from the sun. Relax on one of the many upholstered couches, or gather the family around the roomy dining table to enjoy a memorable meal together. Alfresco dining is easy and fun on the aft deck with an expansive table that offers both booth and chair seating options.

Several areas throughout the craft are great for lounging, soaking up the sun or just enjoying the impressive vistas. Extra-wide cushioned benches line the aft deck and are a great place to enjoy an afternoon catnap in the sun. The forward deck has two trampoline areas that are both fun and comfortable.

Enjoy many activities while on board, including:

• Snorkeling
• Paddle boarding
• Swimming

The aft deck has both hot and cold showers, so you can rinse off after splashing around in the ocean. While on the water, you can rest assured that your crew is competent and experienced. Captain, David Chown was licensed through the top sailing academy in the world and has years of experience guiding this and other crafts. Make your next vacation memorable with a trip aboard the Fuerte 3.

Crew Profile

We met over 20 years ago in eastern England while skating. When Dawn was not busy working in restaurants, she was the top skating coach for the UK. David was working as a systems engineer and electrician, as well as a chef at weekends. We spent our first few years together restoring our cottage which was built in 1585. Having sailed in many different areas we went to the BVIs and fell in love with the islands.
It was Dawns idea to leave home and go off to sea; an idea that David greatly relished! We decided that David would update his license at the top sailing academy in the world, whilst Dawn had one to one lessons with one of the regions top cookery teachers.
We have been the longest constantly serving and busiest captain and chef for the largest crewed charter company in the world, working on various yachts always in the BVI. Our original idea was to work in this career for ten years. Having spent 12 years and almost 300 charters in the BVIs we are still saying we want to spend another ten years in the job we love!

My family has been sailing for longer than I can remember. I trained in hotel management for 2 years. but somehow ended up becoming a electrician which I loved. I am a MCA/RYA commercially endorsed Yachtmaster 200 ton. I love to drive my 1963 MGB. roadster called The Baby whenever I can. I also enjoy old buildings, cooking, if Dawn lets me anywhere near the galley, photography, and I am attempting to learn the Didgeridoo with limited success!!

I was brought up travelling around Europe and North Africa with my parents. When they finally settled down back home in England I found my love of skating. Skating once again took me travelling! Having settled down with David in our Cottage I thought my traveling days were over. Then the BVIs and sailing found me and off to new adventures we went. I have worked in restaurants for many years and when I have time off, I love to do cookery courses for fun!

We are married and are both non smokers..
