INTRODUCING OUR CLASSES OF YACHTS

When TradeWinds started we only had 50ft four cabin catamarans. It has always been our dream to introduce yachts with an even higher quality of service and experience.

In 2011 we purchased our first TradeWinds 70 from Fountaine Pajot. The difference in the catamaran was huge! She is 70ft long, has six cabins and a cockpit almost the size of our smallest catamaran!

Since then we have introduced three ‘Classes of Yachts’; Cruising, Luxury and Flagship class. Today our Members enjoy cruises aboard three classes of catamaran offering three different levels of experience.

Air Conditioning

Most of our guests want air conditioning. Whilst this is understandable, we also cruise in some of the most precious unpoluted waters in the world and as a company, we have an onus on us to try to protect this for both our guests and the next generation.

We believe we have found a good balance whereby we minimise environmental impact, yet give you a level of comfort aboard.

We encourage you to open hatches and feel the breeze. It's that very breeze that allows us to sail in the first place!

Aboard our Cruising Class (Classics)
  • Air conditioning is limited due to generator positioning and it's proximity to the cabins.
  • Air conditioning is run on the dock when on charter.
  • Cabins are cooled down in the evening whilst the generator is running (charging the batteries).
  • Generator will be switched off by 10pm.
  • Please note that the Generator runs in the morning to charge the batteries. No Air conditioning is offered at this time.
Aboard our Cruising Class (New)
  • Air conditioning is run on the dock when on charter.
  • Cabins can be cooled down in the evening whilst guests prepare for dinner (around 5pm - 7pm). Note that the generator is shut off during dinner.
  • Air conditioning can be turned on after dinner 8.30pm to 10pm to cool the cabins down.
  • In Summer months after dinner the air conditioning can be turned on until 7am at the Captains discretion.
Aboard our Luxury Class
  • Air conditioning is run on the dock when on charter.
  • Running of air conditioning will depend on the size of the generator and usage of the battery charger and water maker.
  • Air conditioning can be turned on in the evening whilst guests prepare for dinner (around 5pm - 7pm)
  • If necessary air conditioning can be turned on through the night until 7am from when the first guest goes to bed.
Aboard our Flagship Class
  • As required but as close to Luxury Class as possible.

* Please note that sometimes air conditioning breaks. Our crew make every effort to fix things at sea, but air conditioning often requires a specialist technician. We cannot offer any compensation for air conditioning failure.
