AMAZING GRACE – From the minute I met Desiree, chef aboard the 53’ Royal Cape catamaran AMAZING GRACE, I had a smile on my face.  Tall, blond, and friendly, she ushered me aboard from off the dock, and as I entered the saloon and saw her platters of thickly sliced, ample-portioned, fresh-rolled, yummy-looking, homemade sushi, I knew I was seeing something special. Copious amounts of it, when Desiree does a thing, she really does it. Mango coconut prawn; jerk tuna and avocado; salmon chive and feta with truffle. Mentioning something about a miso crust, she said “My passion is food.  And I can do naughty or nice!”  She told me about the Snickers cheesecake she had going for most of the boat show.  “It was incredible!”  Then she said, “We do a lot of fishing on this boat.  Either I put it on the grill, which is massive on this boat, or I turn it into sushi or ceviche.”  Then she told me she won first prize for her ceviche last year.  “While working on a 125’ power yacht last year, we caught a wahoo on the way down, and I turned it into ceviche.  It was very, very special.” she said.  When I asked her where she was from, she said “South Africa, along with our mojito making, Palm tree climbing captain, Pierre.”

These 53’ Royal Cape catamarans are built in South Africa.  What makes them different from other catamarans is their solid wood floors and varnished maple cabinetry and paneling.  Little things like this make a big difference.  They lend the yacht a feeling of quality.

AMAZING GRACE has a master cabin, but you have to walk upstairs to get into the bed.  The stateroom is L-shaped, forward to port.  The bed is up high between the pontoons forward of the saloon, at least on par with windows in the hull, so you can see out.  It’s just interesting, that’s all.  It has a couch, TV, desk – all the cabins have TV – and air conditioning.  All the cabins are air conditioned.

Ottomans in the saloon fill in to make one big bed, great for watching television.  Desiree shopped and put together the colors – gray with textured pillows.  “We want our guests to feel like home.  We also want things to feel luxurious.  It’s important to have good bedding.”  Three additional Queen-berthed private guest staterooms have lots of headroom.  “You don’t want to feel claustrophobic.”  All the bathrooms have etched glass bathroom doors, and all the floors are solid wood – beautiful!  One caveat: the shower in the starboard forward cabin is a wet shower (no stall shower); and the fourth cabin is a full-sized bed, not a queen – suitable for an adult or two children.

Based in St. Thomas, AMAZING GRACE charters for $16,500 to $20,500 weekly all inclusive for two to eight guests, except $24,000 weekly for Christmas week and $26,000 weekly for New Year’s week, starting on or after December 27th, 2020.
