Papillon is a French-made Beneteau Sailing Yacht. It is 60 feet of pure luxury, allowing 4 people, maximum, the ultimate experience.
From the stunning white hull, to the teak decks, to the beauty of her wood interior she simply oozes class.
Her size means she is well suited to comfortable cruising and at the same time ensuring she is incredibly safe in any sea-state.
Accommodation takes the form of a huge main saloon, with dining table, couches and shag-pile carpet, and an adjoining chef’s galley. Forward, there are two double guest cabins both with ensuite heads and a shared dual-access shower. The skipper’s cabin is aft and there is a further double-bunk cabin for the crew.
Above, the centre cockpit allows adequate seating in comfort for all on board and a central table for alfresco dining on balmy evenings. Coverage with an expansive bimini and dodger ensures protection from the elements – in particular the overhead sun and the wind. For those wanting some exposure there is the huge aft deck. A retractable swimming platform and ladder at the transom allows easy entry and exit for swimming, snorkelling and scuba-diving.
Papillon has all the modern conveniences that you would ordinarily expect in a house, including: all cooking facilities, fridge-freezer, microwave, dishwasher, BBQ, and washing/drying machine. She has her own generator and water-maker so she can easily go for a week without the need to return to “civilisation”.
Safety is a priority and she comes with the necessary equipment to deal with any emergency, including: life-raft, life-jackets, life-buoys, fire extinguishers, flares, state of the art navigation, radar, VHF / HF communication and EPIRB (emergency location). Whilst Andrew does not allow mobile phones on board, his is always available and on standby for the purposes of safety and in the unlikely event of an emergency.
