    ALPHA CENTAURI is a clasically beautiful 57' Nautor Swan sailing yacht, designed by Sparkman & Stephens and built in 1979 with several refits since then. She's easy to sail, yet tough and strong in all sea conditions. Her interior has a very warm feeling thanks to all the wood paneling and leather upholstery. Accommodations are for up to 6 guests in 3 cabins, all with ensuite bath. The large aft master cabin has both a double and a twin birth, so it's great for a couple with a small child. The aft also has a separate entrance. All bathrooms have Vācu-flush toilets. A/C is available when docked. All rooms have fans to catch the seabreeze. Whether it is performance sailing or pure relaxation, Bruno and Anna know how to ensure one fabulous vacation aboard. A TYPICAL DAY ON ALPHA CENTAURI Sunrise under tropics. We just woke up and nature is already in full swing. A pelican flying over water and white sand Turquoise Bay, or we stop and a turtle just surprise us. Skipper Bruno and Chef Anna are waiting on deck to share breakfast, with fresh fruit and pastries on the menu this morning. It is another beautiful day - our program: sailing, fishing, swimming, and diving until we look to see the legendary green flash at sunset. We arrived yesterday afternoon and after a refreshing shower Bruno and Anna took us to a little bar on the beach where we enjoyed some cocktails with enchanting names "Cuba Libre" & "Pain Killer". We're all barefoot in the still warm sand. When we return onboard, a most excellent dinner is waiting for us. Anna with her Cordon Bleu training, makes us travel and see the world through each of its dishes and desserts. Every day it seems she redoubles her imagination, combining local ingredients, our fresh catch, or adapting an Italian recipe to our market. We discover wines Bruno has selected in their country of origin, Italy and France and throughout their many travels. Advancing into the evening, we enjoy pleasant discussions in the gentle trade winds, the starlight and Pigeon lamp. Tomorrow during our trip Bruno will give us some guidance on how to steer the boat. We will certainly catch a tuna, bonito or a wonderful dorado dolphinfish and of course Anna will hasten to prepare tartare or in oven. Then after a good swim we will go to explore natural caves and pools that Bruno told us about last night. Aboard Alpha Centauri there is a golden rule: Life is beautiful and you should take advantage.
