About This Sleep Aboard Boat


 …is not the sort of boat you may know from previous charters or boatshows. She’s not off the rack, not produced in bulk. She is a bespoke vessel, lovingly hand-built in the Netherlands over a period of many years. Her hull is built out of solid 5mm steel, the rig formed out of massive pine. She gives us shelter, comfort, loads of living space and a great quality of life. I bought Malu in Martinique in 2009 and since then I have been restoring her, step-by-step. Everyone who owns a boat knows that this process never ends. But she is now safe, navigational and seaworthy for great voyages and the Tropics. Malu has berths for 4 people in 2 cabins. The wheelhouse and the sundeck can also sleep 2 people each, either under the sunshade or beneath the panoply of the stars. She will never win a race with her sluggish weight of 15 tons and her length of 11 meters. This is why she is affectionately known as “The Loungeboat“ among friends. Over the years we have built up an intimate relationship with her and every day we gain a fresh appreciation of her qualities. In the Polynesian language “Malu“ means both “guardian“ and “peace“…  and this is what she means to us.



 …we want to show you is relatively off the beaten tourist track. Our homebase is in Grenada W.I. and our route normally takes us along the Lesser Antilles. Of course you can tell us your favourite destination and we will see if it’s possible to schedule. We do also offer affordable one-way trips if it fits into our schedule.

We call the waters around the Tobago Keys our main sailing area. Here it’s possible for us to stay at the same spot for days without getting bored, or to sail within short distances to the next small island to get to know it and experience new adventures there.
