The crew of a popular Virgin Islands yacht charter vessel has come up with a plan to be greener and save their customers money.
Recognizing many charter clients end up eating a meal or two ashore during a typical week-long yachting vacation, sail catamaran SILVER MOON has announced a half board food option.
While a typical all-inclusive charter features 3 meals a day, the half board option includes all breakfasts, 3 lunches and 4 dinners, along with beverages, the standard ship’s bar, and snacks. All other meals are taken ashore at the guest’s expense.
Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway, explains the benefits of a half board option: "Part of the attraction of a yachting vacation is the chance to indulge in local customs and foods. Sometimes, fresh food on the yachts goes to waste as the clients tend to eat ashore two or three times a week in the various ports of call. The half board option cuts down on waste, preparation materials and cleanup," explains Sheeder.
Clients can save money, too, as the overall cost of the boating vacation can be reduced to reflect the fewer meals and food served onboard.
Here’s the price breakdown on S/Y SILVER MOON:
Passengers Half-Board All-Inclusive
2 $ 8,000 $ 8,600
3 8,560 9,200
4 9,115 9,800
5 9,775 10,500
6 10,325 11,100
The sailing yacht SILVER MOON is a 44′ catamaran launched in 2002. She offers 3 guest cabins, each with a queen berth and private bathroom. The yacht is equipped with wind scoops to limit the need for air conditioning. The crew also purchases earth-friendly paper products, biodegradable cleaning products, and local organic produce when available.
Other catamarans available in the Caribbean this winter include the world’s largest catamaran, the 145′ sail yacht HEMISPHERE, the 75′ sail catamaran LADY ALLIAURA, and the 65′ sail catamaran WORLD’S END.
