There is a boarding ladder with bathing platform on the starboard side along with a deck shower. Guests can enjoy swimming from the boat or using our other floating toys.

To the stern there is a substantial passerelle for easy boarding when moored stern to.

Many nights are spent at anchor in the beautiful bays of the Ionian islands and to get ashore there is a large tender with a 50HP engine.  This provides comfortable transfers to and from the shore.  It can also be used for water skiing and towing floating toys, providing fun and enjoyment for all ages

Below decks she is superbly fitted throughout in solid teak. The cabin layout on Viola provides 4 large double cabins each with its own en-suite shower and toilet, wardrobe and drawer storage space.  Two cabins are forward of the saloon, one to port the other to starboard and two aft on either side.

Her spacious saloon not only offers a dining table that easily accommodates 10, but also on the port side a coffee table with additional seating.  She has CD and Mp3 playing facilities, so you can bring your favourite music along.  There is also a TV.

Her galley is well equipped with all that your hostess will need to provide you with extensive buffet style breakfasts and substantial, delicious lunches.  Lesley is often the hostess aboard Viola and appreciates the enormous fridge for keeping all the drinks and fresh food chilled.
