Catamaran Allende

Catamaran Allende is a 2016, 44’ Fontaine Pajot catamaran offering crewed yacht charters in the BVI. She features accommodations for up to 6 guests in 3 Queen cabins. Catamaran Allende is a Carefree Yacht Charters affordable pick for families, couples or special occasions.

Here's what Graham and Kristiann told Carefree Yacht Charters about their service style "Our service style is both responsive and relatable. We use the description "responsive" because we pride ourselves on being able to read our guests well and anticipate their needs. We use the word "relatable" because we have found that our guests respect our work and treat us as equals. We have learned that some groups want their crew to be the entertainment, and we are happy to tell stories about our sailing journey and our travels. Other guests prefer us to work in the background while they spend time together. We make either end of the spectrum feel natural. We have been privileged to experience exceptional service during our own travels, and we bring those touches home to our guests aboard Allende."

Rates from $19,900 to $17,900. View availability and rate details.
