Discover the Best of the Bahamas On-board M/Y SEALYON

At its closest point a mere 45 kilometres from Miami, the Bahamas offer everything the Caribbean is so famous for: hidden bays to drop anchor in, long stretches of white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters perfect for watersports. The archipelago itself comprises over 700 islands and cays, many of which are uninhabited, and is best explored by sea from the comfort of a private yacht charter.
From the Abaco Islands in the north of the chain, which overflow with natural charm and remnants of British colonial life, to the capital Nassau on the island of New Providence, complete with casinos, golf courses, restaurants and some of the Caribbean’s best nightlife, the Bahamas is a destination with something to suit everyone. The Exumas are also not to be forgotten; lying below Nassau, they comprise over 350 idyllic islands and are home to the famous swimming pigs of Major’s Spot Cay, who sometimes venture out in the shallow waters to greet incoming yachts!
With so much to discover on a Bahamas yacht charter, picking the right yacht on which to island hop is crucial.
M/Y SEALYON is a sporty yacht for charter, based year-round in the Bahamas. Boasting a shallow draft and a top speed of 33 knots, she is a recommended choice to make the most of your time in this spectacular archipelago. With cruising speeds of 27 knots, she is ideal for island hopping. Alternatively, relax and enjoy the special features onboard, including a sundeck Jacuzzi. Thanks to SEALYON’s zero-speed stabilisers, rest assured that your time at anchor would be serene.
Launched in 2007 from ISA Yachts, SEALYON can accommodate 9 guests in 4 immaculate staterooms – 2 doubles and 2 twins (one with an additional Pullman berth). The yacht’s elegant and chic décor mirrors those of her glamourous Caribbean surrounds and offers the ultimate retreat, with a contemporary colour scheme of silver, black and white. Her Italian interiors were designed by Cristiano Gatto and the finishing touches combine ultra-soft furnishings with polished walls, mirrors, bevelled glass and Lalique inlays.
SEALYON is available for summer and winter yacht charters from USD 130,000 per week. To start planning your ultimate Bahamian yachting holiday, contact your Y.CO charter broker today.
