Jeanneau 54DS (2008) 'Namaste'


Jeanneau 54DSThe Jeanneau 54DS available for BVI yacht charter is a stunning, 54′ luxury yacht designed by Jacques Fauroux and Vittorio Garroni as the flagship of the Jeanneau range. This beautiful, spacious, air-conditioned yacht offers all the extras and amenities that one would expect of a quality luxury yacht. Teak decks and navy hull, makes “Namaste” stand out from the crowd.

There is a flexible sleeping arrangement giving the ability to sleep 8 in 4 double cabins and one twin bunk cabin. Forward of the salon is an adjustable suite fitted with a removable bulkhead. There is a starboard double berth, with en suite bathroom, with a twin bunk to port that can be folded into a couch when the dividing bulkhead is removed to make one large cabin. The double berth in the forepeak can be used as a lockable captain’s cabin with entry from the deck, or can be accessed via the bunk cabin. There is a further head and shower aft of the bunk cabin. Two large double cabins are located aft each with own head and shower. These double berths also have single berth/ sitting areas. There is ample locker and hanging space in all of the cabins.

The salon has the look and feel of an elegant lounge with a spaciousness that cannot be found on other yachts of comparable size. Many creature comforts are offered to guests including a CD player with speakers inside and outside on the sun deck and cockpit. The galley is a seafaring chef’s dream with all the conveniences one could ask for – a large refrigerator and outsize freezer, a 4 burner gas stove, oven and microwave. Teak and holly floors, leather upholstery, and corian work surfaces enhance the stylish interior.Guests have the option of dining inside or al fresco around the large table in the cockpit.

A fully adjustable bimini / dodger system provides you with adjustable sun exposure and an extra large inbuilt cooler on the floor of the cockpit gives you instant access to cold, refreshing drinks.

The Jeanneau 54DS is designed for optimum performance on the seas. From your preferred steering station, she has twin helms affording great visibility forward under sail, and convenient walk through access to the transom when at anchor) the furling main and electric winches throughout allow for single-handed management of the sails. The bow thruster and state of the art steering enable this 54 footer to be handled as if she were a yacht half her size. If you would like to enjoy the comforts of a Jeanneau 54DS but don’t have the necessary experience, this yacht is available to you as a captained yacht.

Peter "Louis" Johnson, "Namaste 2" Jeanneau 54DS, British Virgin Islands, January 2017.

Just wanted to drop a quick note thanking the entire staff at HYC for helping making our vacation a great time. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The boat was in great condition when we arrived and sailed beautifully. Cant wait to come back and will definitely recommend HYC to all our friends.
