*Retiring from charter service end of July, 2016*
Produced by Matrix Yachts of South Africa, the Vision 450 offers a straight forward, spacious and elegant interior, complimented by sleek exterior lines.
Each of the four cabins provides ample storage, hanging locker space, excellent head room, a private head with separate shower and opening hatches in all the right places. The forward cabins have queen berths while king berths dominate the aft cabins.
This is not your average catamaran! The main salon is open, airy, pleasing to the eye, beautifully finished and imminently functional. No space has gone unused on this yacht!
She boasts an extremely well thought out, u-shaped galley with pass through window to the cockpit. There's a double sink with an additional under counter drying sink with drain to the right of the sink. Just flip up the lid of the drying sink, load your clean dinnerware and pop the lid down.
You'll be pleased to find a large, front opening, under counter refrigerator with separate freezer just inside and to starboard of the cockpit door. In addition, this catamaran has a fabulously huge refrigerator hidden away below the cockpit seat directly to port of the doorway. This is an ideal place to keep your drinks!
The exterior of this yacht is impressive. Large sugar scoops provide suitably easy access to the water or your dinghy and you can stow dive tanks and snorkel gear in the lockers built right into the sugar scoops! Wide side decks and well placed hand rails make navigating forward quite safe even in rough seas.
The aft cockpit with dining table is where you will ultimately spend many hours relaxing and enjoying our Caribbean tradewinds. This is one of the largest cats without air conditioning available for charters in Tortola!
Note: Sailing lessons (level 114) are available aboard this yacht. Candidates must already possess ASA level 104 bareboat certification.
