With 3 cabins, our Yacht is a 72’ cutter rigged ketch with two masts and two foresails. Designed to offer maximum comfort and luxury, she offers gentle passage, making good speed in light or strong winds. The fine quality of her finish, fixings and fittings are unparalleled on standard yachts making her always the prettiest boat in the harbour with her classic exterior lines and hand finished teak interior. Cockpit The covered cockpit is filled with comfy mattresses and cushions for sitting or lounging. This is arranged in a pretty figure of eight around the mizzen mast. one oval contains the outside dining area with a teak table and space for at least six people. The other oval centres on the raised helm where you can watch all the nautical action and instruments with plenty of room to sit or lie down. Decks Stepping onto the wide teak decks you walk forward past the sun bathing mattress’ on the saloon roof to the foredeck which has space for beanbags, loungers and an armchair below the mast. The chequered decking which stretches over the bowsprit is an exciting vantage point. The wind and gentle spray are invigorating while the bow wave created by the prow is a natural playground for dolphin. if you sit on the bowsprit deck you can almost touch them with your toes! Walking aft you find a very stable raised back deck which you can use for anything you like; fishing, BBQing or just plain reading and relaxing on the directors’ chairs. We can also rig up a hammock for that precious daytime nap in the cool sea breeze. There is air conditioning throughout the interior of the boat for hot days and resting before and after dinner. Interior Inside you walk down a staircase holding a scrolled balustrade to discover the 17’ x 17’ teak saloon lit by large windows with shades. The whole interior is finished in beautiful, varnished teak wood. There is a large sofa and table on the port side with bookshelves and brass portholes. Opposite the sofa is a large flat screen TV with a pro audio Bose sound system for movies and other entertainment. Living Walking forward there are two cabins with en suite and further on the tool room with the dive compressor, tanks, toys and fishing equipment. To the rear of the staircase is the galley (kitchen to landlubbers!) with a coffee machine, ice maker, X large fridge/ freezer and dedicated drinks fridge. On the other side of the galley is the cosy round dining room. Perfect for escaping the sun in the day or an atmospheric dinner at night. With the portholes open you can feel the sea breeze whilst relaxing in comfort on the curved seating. The aft cabin is a grand, pretty room which spans the width of the boat. The Spanish galleon style back means the full width of the boat is available for spacious comfort. Main Cabin There are three cabins on Amber. The aft cabin is a huge room with a queen size bed, two sofas and four square, large portholes above the bed. A large hatch and two more portholes by the sofas let sea breezes cool the room along with two oscillating fans. Air conditioning is available in the heat of the day and to cool the room before bedtime. The bathroom has a very comfortable sit down bath, porthole and cupboards. The main room also has ample clothes and accessory storage in drawers and cupboards. There are ceiling lights, reading lights and shaded wall lights for every mood. This room is romantic, stylish, cool and comfortable. Its a couple’s delight ! However if necessary the bed can be made into two singles with a wooden divider. Other Cabins Forward of the saloon are two cabins each with en suite bathrooms. The rooms are made of teak like the rest of the boat. In the ensuite teak fittings, frames and ivory coloured wall panels continue to lighten your surroundings with a timeless, luxury feel. The port cabin is a generous single with a hatch, porthole, oscillating fan and air conditioning. The starboard cabin has two bunk beds with a hatch, porthole, oscillating fan and air conditioning. All the cabins and bathrooms have large mirrors and electric toilets. Waking up in a teak cabin with the sun beginning to peep through is one of the great joys of life. The extra comfy mattresses, pillows and luxury linen ensure a deep sleep after an exhilarating or relaxing day on board this classic, beautiful sailing yacht. Every guest on Amber comes to adore this special boat. For shorter trips all three are at the service of the guests on longer trips one is reserved for the crew.

We call her Queequeg after the famous tattooed Polynesian in Melville’s Moby Dick.
