For those seeking a more relaxed atmosphere, a place where you can really let your hair down, a place where you can wear swim trunks from sunrise to sunset without ever feeling the need to change, then perhaps cruising around on the legendary sailing yacht Bliss spells your perfect kind of getaway. She’s one of the few sporty composite sailing yachts on the charter circuit today – ideal for cruising the world in style.
With space for six guests in three contemporary cabins (and the flexibility to increase it to 10 by way of Pullmans), sailing yacht Bliss is one of the largest composite sloops in the Southern hemisphere. At 37m (121ft) in length, her design hails from Dubois Naval Architects. Built in 2009 to MCA class survey standards at the Yachting Developments family-owned shipyard in New Zealand, she has a distinctive burnt orange pinstripe against a black hull and white heat reflective painted decks.
Bliss offers guests unparalleled leisure with its freshwater spa pool on the foredeck, while the large sun pads on the aft deck is the perfect spot to catch some rays. Furthermore, the aft swim platform provides quick access to the sea – allowing you to really soak in your destination. Throw in a paddle on the kayaks and a session on the water skis – and you have fun options for your entire group.
Described as a Yachtsman’s Yacht, this performance cruising sloop has speed on her side. Her lightweight composite hull contributes to better stability and favorable power to weight ratio. The carbon fiber rudder is credited with providing absolute feedback to the helmsman. If participating in the bucket racing circuit is more to your liking, then S/Y Bliss is ready and set to take part.
You’d be well catered to with space for up to five crew members during a Bliss yacht charter. After a rewarding day of fishing or diving near Manta Point or Crystal Bay, the Chef could prepare the day’s catch in the award-winning Galley.
The interior is very sleek and modern with a mix of dark and light. The exterior offers a shaded cockpit for dining and ample sunbeds for those lazy afternoons. In case your threshold for relaxation hasn’t completely gone off the charts yet, bring the day to a close by heading over to the foredeck. Sitting in the Jacuzzi tub while sipping on champagne, sundowners don’t get much better than this.
As you stroll down below deck to the climate-controlled cabins, a restful night at anchor is guaranteed with nothing but the stars above and a light breeze to accompany you on this magical journey. Not only is the master cabin gorgeous, but the His and Hers ensuite bathrooms are a nice touch during your charter experience.
