*Retiring from charter service end of August, 2016*
She offers gobs of space, smooth sailing, a bright and airy interior ... and the price point is quite reasonable. This lovely air conditioned yacht is ideal for three couples who enjoy each other's company but appreciate their privacy with sufficient room to spread out and relax.
Both port side cabins with en suite head and shower offer good air flow, lots of natural light, irregular queen berths, a bench seat for dressing and excellent hanging locker space.
The Orana 44 owner's cabin boasts excellent flow through ventilation with several opening ports. There's also an oversized walk around queen berth, a roomy computer desk, loads of storage space and a very roomy head with a very spacious shower stall ... complete with a swinging door to separate it from the rest of the head area.
You'll quite enjoy cooking in the lovely galley (with handy pass through window) which overlooks the aft cockpit. She is well equipped with all the necessary accoutrements including oven, microwave, gas stove and not one but two two refrigerators!
The main saloon provides a great space to congregate for meals, play a board game, read a book, enjoy a nightcap or just relax. There are several opening ports that provide great air flow if you'd like to enjoy the BVI breeze rather than switch on the generator and air.
Topsides, your captain will love the raised helm station with all lines within easy reach. The helm design was cleverly positioned above and beside the aft cockpit, providing 360 degree visibility while still allowing the captain to be part of all that's going on in the cockpit!
Nice wide side decks lead to the bow where everyone loves to ride in the huge trampoline or lie on deck and soak up some sunshine.
I don't know anyone who doesn't love an outdoor BBQ and dining al fresco. When that BBQ takes place in the aft cockpit of a lovely catamaran surrounded by family and friends while bobbing around the aquamarine waters of the British Virgin Islands ... what could possibly be better?
Of course should the sun become too much for you ... you can always retreat to Winscape's lovely air conditioned main saloon.

Please note that crew are hired at your request and are non-cancellable less than 7 nights prior to the start of your charter. Should you wish to cancel the captain hired on your behalf less than 7 nights in advance, 50% of their fee will become due and payable.
