Wonderful

S/Y WONDERFUL

Never has a yacht been more aptly named than this truly wonderful 73-foot catamaran. Offering nearly 2,800 square feet of fine living, she was conceived specifically to provide over-the-top comfort and amenities. It's no wonder she's been voted "Best in Show" at the BVI Crewed Charter Show.

Sleek, sexy, and sound, WONDERFUL's high standards and unusual features set her apart from the fleet. To begin with, guests can unwind in the heated Jacuzzi spa perched between the bows, or cool down with the freshwater misting system surrounding the cockpit. The casually sophisticated Eurostyle main salon is comparable in size to many large motor yachts, and the flybridge solarium affords panoramic views.

The broad aft deck is the spot for sunning, lounging in the shade, and alfresco dining. Should the breeze rise a little too much, the entire area can be quickly sheltered. With a table seating 12, guests may want to invite friends aboard to share a memorable meal, perhaps followed by a little dancing under the stars. At bedtime, pampered rest awaits in WONDERFUL's four ensuite queen staterooms (one can be converted to twin berths), where exceptional privacy and quiet prevail.

WONDERFUL has strong sea-keeping abilities and sails fast and steady in all conditions. For kids of all ages, there's a seemingly endless choice of water toys including kayaks, wakeboards, kneeboard, airbed, inflatable chariot, towing ring, skis, sport-fishing chair, and snorkel gear. For the diving enthusiast, WONDERFUL's Captain can arrange for rendezvous diving.

Of course this stunning yacht offers first-class service, the finest linens, air-conditioning throughout, WiFi and broadband, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks in all the staterooms, and everything else one would expect from a yacht named WONDERFUL.

S/Y WONDERFUL was freshly painted in August 2014. She is looking fantastic!

S/Y WONDERFUL Catamaran
Crew Profile: Captain + 2 crew

Captain Terence Heyns
South African
WONDERFUL is captained by one the most experienced sailors the industry has to offer. Terence started sailing at the age of twelve and after many hours on the water sailed anything he could lay hands on. Terence was soon racking up medals and national colors representing his country in micro multihull regattas and windsurfing events. At 16 years of age he was the youngest captain to hold a 25 ton license and often sailed the family catamaran to remote Mozambique. After completing school he joined Sun sail in Turkey and captained their larger fleet yachts. The career path was inevitable and he soon progressed to further international destinations on a variety of larger sailing and charter yachts. To date he has logged over 130 000 nautical miles and Crossed the Northern and Southern Atlantic 17 times. Working together with his wife Alyssa guest satisfaction and safety is their number one priority. They enjoy introducing guests to new and favorite destinations and all the attractions these exiting and exotic locations have to offer. They have spent the last few years on a well charted 124 ft Ketch specializing in the Mediterranean, East Coast US, Bahamas, Virgin Isles and Caribbean. With Terence's calm, professional mannerism and extensive world chartering knowledge you can be assured a delightful holiday experience for the guests aboard 'Wonderful'.

Stewardess Alyssa Heyns
American
Alyssa grew up on the New England coast of the United States. At an early age she developed a love for travel and exploration, every summer was an exciting adventure by the sea where she developed a love for boating with her family from a young age. She spent her earlier years as a university student studying chemistry and biology at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island. Alyssa has since logged more than 10,000 sea miles and has completed two Atlantic crossings. An avid runner, yogi, and fitness enthusiast makes Alyssa always ready for the next adventure. Alyssa's service skills, keen eye for detail and aim to please personality makes her a gracious hostess that will accommodate the needs of any guest aboard WONDERFUL. She looks ahead with delight to the many more miles she has to travel aboard WONDERFUL while sharing her love of the sea with whatever guests the future brings to the yacht.

Chef Taryne Evans
