The Experience

Life on Board Yolo

Imagine yourself arriving in one of our beautiful tropical destinations and being swept off to your luxury yacht for your dream vacation.

Upon arrival at Yolo, our 52 foot Luxury Lagoon sailing catamaran, you will be welcomed by our Captain Julle Gylling and Chef and First Mate Anna Komninou. Captain Julle will have his signature welcome cocktails ready and waiting for you in the expansive aft cockpit, where Chef Anna has prepared a bounty of scrumptious appetizers for you.

After enjoying your welcome cocktail and getting to know your crew and beautiful and spacious home for the next week or perhaps weeks, sit down for a delicious lunch prepared by Chef Anna. After your meal, it’s time to set sail for your first destination where you will spend the afternoon and night “on the hook” in a beautiful cove somewhere in paradise. Join the crew on the extremely comfortable fly bridge and settle back and enjoy the spectacular island vistas slowly sliding past as you enjoy a cocktail while sailing to your destination. You can already feel the stresses of your ”home world” slipping away as you take in the beauty and serenity of the incredible Caribbean islands and sea. After arriving at your anchorage, it’s a great time for your first swim in the warm Caribbean waters, or perhaps get out on the paddle board or kayak for some sightseeing and exercise.

After enjoying a wonderful first day on the water, it’s time to enjoy a long hot shower while spoiling yourself with luxurious signature toiletries. When you are ready, it’s time to watch the first of the many spectacular sunsets that you will enjoy in the coming days. Captain Julle will have some signature cocktails ready for you to enjoy on the spacious fly bridge or the comfortable forward cockpit area, where you can sit and relax while dinner is being prepared.

Before a delicious dinner by Anna, Captain Julle will break out a chart (map) of the area, and you can discuss your preferences so that he can customize your Experience. Some guests prefer quiet anchorages with water-sport activities while others might prefer active beach bars and island tours, or perhaps you prefer a perfect mix of the two. Julle will explain what to expect on your unforgettable vacation and together we will build unforgettable memories of your dream vacation on board Yolo.
