Tahiti is perhaps the last Eden on Earth. The land we call home is a constant source of inspiration. It's a land of calmness and relaxation. Legendary natural beauty and serenity capture forever the hearts of even the most seasoned travelers - just as it did with Bougainville, Cook and Gauguin to name a few. Privacy and seclusion draw honeymooners to unspoiled beaches and calm lagoons. And treasures, from black pearl to vanilla bean, to the smile of a warm and joyful people, give a glimpse into the essence of Polynesia - a lifestyle that is culturally rich and diverse, attuned to its environment, safe and welcome.

Everything about the boat seems spacious, but the flow from the wide aft cockpit to the roomy main saloon, and from there down into the accommodations and staterooms, is natural and intuitive. In other words, it may be a very large vessel, but it still feels accessible and inviting. This is a fast sailing boat that you will remain comfortable in the whole time!
