Altesse is a beautiful 2013 Lagoon 560, able to accommodate 8 guests in 4 queen size cabins, or 3 queen cabins and a bunk cabin for kids. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms.
Lagoon 560s are one of the most popular charter boats on the market due to the yacht’s bright and spacious cabins, beautiful internal relaxation areas and wide range of comfortable lounging and dining spaces.
In 2015 Altesse went through a full refit to specifically enhance the experience for charter guests with additions such as a full dining area on the flybridge with an extra BBQ and dining table installed, enhancements to the interior to give her a sophisticated European twist and a custom built 'champagne deck' which extends the cockpit and offers a unique and hugely popular additional relaxation and jumping area.
The yacht has a 70HP dinghy, inclusive diving for up to five guests, new water toys (including an 8 man floating island), updated linen, crockery and furnishings throughout as well as a wine cellar featuring a range of superior French organic wine.
So whether you want activity and exhilaration, or rest and relaxation, Altesse and her award winning crew, who have been chartering in the BVI for 5 years, will ensure that you get everything you wished for and more.
