An Easy to Sail, Comfortable Bareboat Yacht Charter
A breeze to sail, with a beautiful interior and enough room to fit a large group comfortably. The L-400 is a wonderful sailboat, even in a single-digit breeze. The twin diesels, set nearly 24 feet apart, back the boat up and twirl it around magically. It’s easy to sail, tacks well, the small jib is a cinch to handle, and with the roll-up screecher, one gains a simple and minimal sail plan that’s very easy to power up or down. That said, 75 inches of freeboard to the deck plus a high superstructure and low-aspect keels mean this is a boat that shouldn’t be pinched up; it performs best when sailed fully powered and backed off a few degrees from a closehauled heading.

During the first few years of Jenny’s retirement, she fell in love with boating and the Bahamas. She started to book owner time as a hobby, and after meeting a few friends who own boats in a major charter company, her involvement became more than just a hobby!
So much for retirement…
She loves nothing more than providing affordable, luxurious charters to her customers and friends.
