A vacation is supposed to help your stress melt away. When you charter a yacht like Paradigm Shift, you will be able to experience a new level of luxury. Paradigm Shift is a 50 foot catamaran that can have up to six guests aboard. This particular catamaran is run by two crewmembers, and has a lot to offer in the way of vacations.
The sleeping arrangements make this the perfect yacht for three couples or a couple with kids. There are two queen cabins and one double cabin, but each of the cabins has their own en-suite bathroom. Another huge bonus is that the entire interior of the ship is air conditioned, so you will be comfortable no matter the weather. While the sleeping arrangements are great, you probably won’t be spending much time in your cabin while you’re aboard the Paradigm Shift.
Instead, you’ll want to take advantage of the relaxation, fellowship and exciting activities that are available. What does this vessel have to offer?
• Relaxation: Lounge either in the sun or in the shade on the forward trampoline deck, in the cockpit or in the main salon.
• Fellowship: Watch movies, play games and eat food in the main salon or dine alfresco in the cockpit. All of the dining options are rendezvous style on this ship, which means that it will be a casual experience.
• Activities: Take the two-person, glass-bottomed kayak for a spin, go snorkeling with underwater lights, use the swimming noodles to float with ease, play smashball or beach tennis, go stand-up paddle boarding, use the fishing equipment to catch some marine life and get silly with the squirt guns.
You can do all of this and more when you charter this 2011 St. Francis catamaran. The stay on the boat and the knowledgeable crew will help you relax and blow off steam like no other vacation can do. Find out if Paradigm Shift is available for your vacation!
