Sailing Yacht Meltemi

The SY Meltemi is a 51ft comfortable and modern catamaran with lots of space on deck and below, with capacity for 8 guests in 4 cabins.

Meltemi is named after a wind in the Mediterranean Sea. She is a French-built Lagoon 500 catamaran, one of the most successful yachts ever designed for high-end charter. Her previous owner was a Malay princess. Meltemi is available for private charters and fixed-departure sailing adventure cruises in India, Thailand and Myanmar. Meltemi is easy to sail, all winches are electric and can be fully controlled from the large flybridge. She's a great yacht for groups of friends or families and there is lots of space to play or lounge. When under sail, most guests just love to lie in the nets at the bow with the water splashing below.  

Cabins and quarters

Meltemi has 4 comfortable guest cabins, each with king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms and separate air-conditioning. The spacious owner's suite in the starboard hull has its own couch area and a large bathroom (or "head", as they are called on boats). Her bright, wooden interior gives Meltemi a generous and modern feeling. Cabins are accessed through the central saloon, where the open kitchen (or "galley") and the navigation station are located. She is well equipped with 3 large fridges, an oven, a microwave, a water maker, sound and video entertainment systems, warm and cold water.
