Here is our first unusual accommodation for holidays at the Mediterranean! Become the captain of our Grand Banks MY42 yacht docked in the port of Fréjus.
If you have the soul a little adventurous and lined with a practical mind that is compatible with life aboard a ship, then endorsing the dress of a sailor for a few days will give you great pleasure tinged with exoticism!
Our boat has 3 cabins (landsmen say bedrooms) but we keep the port side cabin for our personal belongings. We store our private belongings there when we are not aboard and when the boat is rented. This means that you will have the beautiful aft master cabin with a real Queen size bed 160x200 and the forward bow cabin with 2 berths in V of 75x200 in the front of the boat . Each cabin has a bathroom with shower and toilet. The bright and cozy saloon (landsmen say the living room) has a well equipped kitchenette with multifunction microwave and a fridge, kettle, toaster and Nespresso coffee machine. The saloon and the captain's cabin have air conditioning but in general, it is more pleasant, even in summer, to leave the doors wide open to enjoy a pleasant air circulation ...
Appetizers and cocktails will be taken on the fly deck where one has a beautiful view on the harbor. The sunbathers will also find a comfortable mattress on the front deck of the boat.
WiFi is provided by the harbor. Port-Fréjus is one of the most beautiful marinas in the region and especially, it is superbly well equipped. Many restaurants and shops are located along the waterfront.
The boat has 2 full bathrooms but if you want more spacious sanitary and water consumption without restriction, you can also use the toilets and showers of the harbor.
Important: our boat unfortunately can not accommodate children under 12 years.
Good to know about living on board
Captain Fox, even if he is a cuddly toy, welcomes you aboard a real ship designed to sail the high seas. Grand Banks is a famous American shipyard, known for its motoryachts that have travelled the seas all over the world since 1956. Although our boat will remain docked during your stay, you have to forget most of what you know about traditional holiday apartments and even about life aboard cruise ships.
To live on a boat (here we speak of a real boat with a soul, not a floating city with elevators, swimming pools and restaurants), the heels shoes and big suitcases are banned. Forget them at home. The real sailor that you will definitely become only travels with a flexible big backpack as luggage :-)
To access the boat by the narrow bridge , the sailor has to show a minimal sense of balance not to fall into the water, even after scouring all the bars around the harbor. Once on the boat, he removes his shoes. Life on board is with no shoes or with slippers.
The sailor is a careful character, especially with fresh water on board. The boat - even when docked - is autonomous, and thus not connected to the running water network of the city. All consumed water (shower or washing) comes from the reserve on board that has to be managed.
The sailor is respectful of the sea and its cleanliness. He ensures that nothing falls into the water (wind, imbalance) and of course does not throw anything overboard. Port - Fréjus is flying the famous Blue Flag (Pavillon Bleu) that awards only very clean ports. Important: our boat is strictly NO SMOKING.
Many practical tips are given to sailor candidates during the briefing on arrival as well as in the documentation folder available on board and sent to the tenant before arrival.
