Our larger yacht is the magnificent Blue Marlin, an Oceanstar 51. Beautifully appointed, she is capable of comfortably accommodating up to 8 guests, as well as your 2 crew, in 5 cabins.
Blue Marlin offers a range of modern facilities and features including:
En suite in all cabins
Spacious, comfortable saloon
Large cockpit with custom-made cushions
Al fresco dining at full-size cockpit table
Bimini for shade over the cockpit
Navigation systems, including GPS and autopilot
TV, DVD, Internet access and CD Player
Quiet and powerful generator for electrical appliances
Spacious bathing platform
Fresh water deck shower
Dinghy and Outboard engine
Bow-thruster for manoeuvring easily
In-mast mainsail furling gear and a roller reefing system
The saloon is extremely spacious and comfortable. As its focus on the port side there is a large table around which is set stylish and comfortable seating that can accommodate 8 for dinner.
The galley is found on the opposite side of the saloon and this is where Lesley prepares the splendid meals. The chart table and navigation systems are also on the starboard side of the saloon, where if you wish you can plot our passage around the islands.
The large cockpit is the hub of Blue Marlin. It's a great place to participate in the action or just sit back in comfort and enjoy the ride. In the evening when we are in port, the cockpit provides the ideal place to relax and watch life go by around the harbour.
The four guest cabins on board are spacious doubles with en-suite facilities and are individually accessed from the saloon. They are comfortable and bright with good ventilation and ample storage space in both the cabins and their bathrooms.
On the foredeck there are large tailored mattresses and cushions on which you can relax and sunbathe under the warm Greek sunshine as you watch the islands pass by. A bathing platform at the stern of the yacht provides easy access to the sea and immediately at hand is the fresh water deck shower to wash away the salt after your swim.
Also at the stern of Blue Marlin is the "passarelle" or gangway, which is the usual means of getting on and off the yacht. Another way we might get onboard or ashore, is by the dinghy or tender affectionately known as “Elvis” (Love me Tender). We would use him if we chose to anchor overnight in a quiet bay.
Blue Marlin is a dream to sail, having all of the command and navigation systems you would expect on a large modern yacht. A traditional Bermudan Sloop rig means she has one mast supporting two sails with all of her control lines coming back to the cockpit for easy handling.
