The saloon area features separate dining and lounging seating areas, and an entertainment center with stereo system, television and DVD player. A cocktail bar is situated at the entrance of the saloon area, so drinks can be served directly inside or out in the cockpit area. A fully equipped galley and utility area is located starboard. Crew quarters are located forward starboard, next to the galley.
GOOD VIBRATIONS accommodates eight guests in four queen state rooms, each with individual temperature controls, flat screen TVs and private ensuite head and shower. The Master cabin is located amidship portside.
The huge cockpit provides a spacious guest entertainment area protected by a hardtop flybridge. This unique feature opens up the cockpit area for dining and relaxing and enables direct walk-through access to the wide aft swim platform, great for diving, snorkeling and access to the dinghy, which can also be used for water skiing.
Steps leading up from the cockpit lead to the spacious flybridge, completely outfitted for the majority of sail handling and maneuvering with steering, mainsheet control, and full electronics located here, within easy reach of the helmsmen. With comfortable seating, the flybridge provides excellent visibility at the helm and spectacular panoramic views for all.
With an outstanding crew as your hosts, GOOD VIBRATIONS offers what is truly a first class experience and an exceptional value for a boat of her size and amenities.

CHEF PETRA HESS
Petra Hess is as beloved for her five-star cuisine as for her jovial character. Her friends describe her as having an infectious laugh, an outgoing personality and a generous heart. Petra has always been high-energy. As a child, she won trophies for equestrian jumping and admits she still loves to jump off heights, which perhaps accounts for her pleasure at piloting small planes. She graduated culinary school, studied cooking in Milan, Italy, worked with French and Italian chefs, won bartending awards, including a prestigious competition in Berlin. She has managed and owned restaurants in Paderborne and Bielefld, Germany.
Today what Petra loves most of all is Caribbean yachting, and sharing her passion with her charter guests. She says that her cuisine is her art. Preparing delicious meals, pairing them with the perfect wine, and seeing her guests' enjoyment, is her pinnacle of success. While she can prepare pretty much everything to perfection, her favorite is fresh, delicately seasoned fish and seafood.
Petra has been getting rave reviews as a yacht chef for 24 years. Charter guests on board Good Vibrations should prepare to gain a few pounds during their charter, or to increase their daily workout. Either way, repeat clients will advise you never to forgo anything that Petra prepares, or you'll be missing out!
