Archipel I & II - Catamaran

Built in 2002, this modern and sleek motor catamaran cruises the archipelago with style and comfort. Although the Archipel could accomodate up to 18 passengers, there are never more than 16 passengers on board. You live in one of the nine spacious double cabins with outside views, private bathroom, hot water, locker, and closet. Four of the cabins are equipped with double beds, five with lower twin beds.

The entire interior of the boat is made of elegant teak wood. In addition, there are a comfortable dining room, a bar and lounge, a library, a ventilation system, a TV and DVD room, stereo, mobil and e-mail service, a safety deposit box, a first aid equipment, an ice maker, a water purifier, an elastic observation deck, as well as a spacious sun deck with chairs to sleep or relax.
