Description:

The 41′ Morgan Out Island ketch, DREAM KETCHER, is a wonderful, inexpensive yacht for two to four guests looking to charter the Abacos.  Available with captain and chef, who offer scuba diving, the yacht is available year round, except during hurricane season from about mid August through October.  While the most popular time to cruise is the spring and early summer, winter time from November through mid March is a less expensive time to go.  That is, DREAM KETCHER reduces her rates then.  Four day minimum charters or longer are accepted.  The yacht offers an optional Sail and Resort Package in conjunction with Treasure Cay Resort Hotel on Abaco.  Or enjoy your entire time in the Abacos onboard.  The captain and chef, Eric and Nathalie, are French Canadians who have been cruising the Abacos for many years and know the islands well.  The yacht’s all inclusive rates include food and scuba diving for certified divers, but not bar.  Eric and Nathalie will stock this for you or bring your own bottle.  Scuba instruction is extra, but Nathalie is a certified Scuba Instructor.  So you can plan on scuba diving during your Bahama charter, even if you have never dived before.  The Abacos offer some of the whitest, powderiest sand beaches and brightest blue waters of the Bahamas and of course you find the best of the Bahamas colonial British culture on this chain in beautiful Hope Town.  There are lots and lots of anchorages.  Nathalie has a stunning suggested sailing itinerary; the link is at the bottom of this page.  DREAM KETCHER sleeps up to four guests in a large master cabin aft plus Vee-Berth Double cabin forward (which converts to Singles) and the crew sleep in the saloon.  There are two bathrooms; the crew share one.  With weekly, high-season, all inclusive rates for four guests just under $6,000 a week (less for smaller parties), DREAM KETCHER offers good value.

CHRISTMAS & NEW YEARS: USE Winter rates! Dec. 27th start for New Year’s is OK, 24 hour turn at holidays is OK.
