The Yacht "Viola of London"



Welcome aboard!
The yacht was built between 1990 and 1997 and is registered in the British Ship's Registry. She is completely built out of steel and all the decks are of teak. With her enormous sail area she will sail well even in light winds. If there is no wind, her quiet engine will bring us into port. The length of Viola is 23 metres (75 feet).

Our spacious salon

 

Once you walk down the stairs from the cockpit to the salon you will understand what we mean by "spacious". The seating area is nearly six metres wide, so it won’t be crowded. Our salon retains a cozy and comfortable atmosphere thanks to the wood interior, round table and comfortable chairs. It is equipped with air-conditioning, the headroom is more than enough (2,5m) and through the many windows you will have a nice ocean view. There is plenty of room for you to play board games or read a book in a quiet corner while everyone else is outside. Meals can be taken in the salon (or outside) or for a nightcap before you go to sleep. There is an audio system with cd’s and mp3 input, you are welcome to bring your favourite music.

The enormous teak deck

 

In the Greek climate you will spend most of your time outside, especially while on a yacht. For this reason it is good to know that we have 90 square metres of teak deck! The cockpit is spacious and fits up to 18 people, whereas we have a maximum of 8 guests, so there is be plenty of room to make yourself comfortable. The whole cockpit area is covered by a bimini (sun tent) to provide some shade. If you want to work on your tan, we have sun beds ready for you on the foredeck and centre where you can gaze at the ocean or relax with a book while the yacht is cutting through the water under sail. Many guests like to pretend to read a book while gently being rocked to sleep. 

Viola of London has a solid stairway on the side to get in and out the water. After a refreshing swim you will find a shower at the top of the stairs to wash off the salt.
 
By the way, sleeping on deck is a great experience and our sunbeds make a night under the stars very comfortable.

The cabins - sweet dreams!

 

Viola has four spacious cabins, each equipped with an en-suite bathroom with toilet and shower. The double beds (120 cm Queen sized beds) will  rock you to sleep. Each cabin has air-conditioning, having that said most guests simply open the portholes and allow the gentle breeze to flow through. 

 

You will have plenty of space to store your cloths personal equipment.
