"Alphee" is a French built, Bruce Farr designed 45' yacht. This model has been evolved specifically for use by the world's leading charter operators. "Alphee" was originally chartered in the Caribbean, and is now available for sailing in Western Australia's pristine waters.

A comfortable yacht for living onboard, "Alphee" has four separate double berth cabins, accomodating a maximum of six passengers embarking on tours overnight. There are two toilets and hot/cold showers, with another freshwater shower located on the swim platform. The freshwater tanks have a capacity of 1000L and there is a three burner stove and oven, a double stainless steel sink and twin fridges. The stereo system includes both saloon and cockpit speakers.

The cockpit, shaded by a bimini, is also very roomy and comfortable with a foldaway table for romantic outside dining when the weather is suitably balmy.
"Alphee" is designed for ease of sailing, being equipped with an auto pilot, GPS plotter, radar, depth sounder, VHF and SSB radio's. A 53hp Yanmar diesel engine provides a speed of 7.5 knots when the wind drops.

"Alphee" is skippered by a congenial person with extensive sailing experience and local knowledge of the Western Australian coastline. Charterers will be provided with professional instruction and encouraged to sail and navigate the yacht themselves, thus enjoying a feeling of participation and self satisfaction.

Tours are planned to ensure that the best opportunity is made to enjoy the natural attractions of the marine environment. Fishing, snorkelling and exploring in some of Australia's clearest and spectacular coral waters, combined with sheer sailing pleasure and good dining will ensure an experience to remember for a long time.
"Alphee" is fully equiped with cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery, sheets, pillow cases and blankets, fishing and snorkelling gear, as well as wet weather apparel sufficient for everyone, is also carried on board. You will therefore only need to bring clothing, sunscreen, personal toiletries and of course your own alcoholic beverages. Pack your gear in a soft bag for easy stowage on board.

"Alphee" is available for cruising for as little as $700 per day with BYO food and drink, on the basis that all cooking chores are shared. A 30% deposit is required for booking confirmation, with the balance payable no later than 14 days from departure. Make up your own party of friends or family, with a maximum of six persons sharing three cabins.
