Currently docked in BVI Waters of Nanny Cay marina, Yacht A2—a vessel of luxury and performance—establishes a great standard among the boats chartered by crews in the BVI.
Managed by Leon and Michelle Heyns, a veteran crew who provide a service of relaxation, gourmet cuisine and a variety of apparatus for multiple water-sports activities, the 56-foot Lagoon catamaran is one of the most modern arrivals in the Caribbean charter market.
Built by naval architect Van Peteghem Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), with interior designer Nauta Yachts and exterior designer Lagoon L&D Department, the vessel holds eight guests and two crew members in its expansive setting. Even at maximum capacity, ample room is afforded, operating as both a social playground and a haven for solitude.
A deck seating area, a vast cockpit, a salon, and fly bridge are all optional areas to happily loiter with the affluence of full air conditioning throughout the boat.
Four roomy guest cabins—three with queen-sized beds and one with a single-sized bunk bed—are fitted with en-suite heads and showers, private air conditioning units and fans. The spacious nature of each room is amplified by an abundant supply of light and air, accomplished by strategically placed hatches, portholes and windows that bestow this distinguishing feature.
Powered by two 110 HP Yanmar Turbo diesel engines, the vessel is pushed to a comfortable speed of 10 knots with a wealth of unique features that pitch it as conspicuous among the multitude of incredible boats in the BVI.
An enormous fly bridge is one of its grand boasts, allowing guests to have a 360 degree view while sailing through the pure ocean of the BVI. The interior of the yacht has a similar amenity with vertical windows that permit a 360 degree view from the inside.
Contributing to this exquisite sailing excursion, the yacht possesses a large lounge area that has both the possibility of shade or sun, adding to the flexibility of the boat’s leisurely provisions.
The contemporary standing of A2 means it is furnished with all the latest gadgets for a smooth sail across the waters to the crew and guests’ elation.
It holds an integrated hybrid touch Raymarine Chartplotter and radar with remote steering, touch screen master control for all systems, a hydraulic tender lift, two heated transom showers, a bow thruster, electric winches, fresh water electric restroom facilities and a 70 gal per hour water maker.
Guests will be contented with the incredible additions:
• a filtered drinking water system • icemaker • dishwasher • two refrigerators • two freezers • a retractable digital HD TV with satellite • free broadband WiFi Internet Access • Barbecue • Fusion and Bose audio systems with an Ipod docking station • a Nespresso machine • 17.5 Kilowatt generator • 13.5 foot Nautica rib
With this complete assortment of resources and modern gadgets to conceive this yacht as the pinnacle of opulence, it is no wonder A2 is revered as a boat of unadulterated refinement.
