About S/Y Quest
S/Y Quest is a very spacious yacht. She is 64 foot length over all and 16.7 foot wide. She was built with a strong steel hull and designed specifically for sail and dive charters and features a dive deck that is very unusual for a yacht of her size.
There are two tank racks, one on each side, both with filling station. After a dive you leave the BCD on the tank and the tank will be filled where it is. At the center is a camera table and at the back an 80 liter camera rinse bin. The custom made live ladder allows for easy entry and exit.
The dive deck and the cockpit is also fully shaded with a fixed sun shade.
The large cockpit seats 8 comfortably and has fitted fully cushioned seats. S/Y Quest is fully flushed decked with wide side decks that allow you to walk around as though you were on a vessel many times her size.
S/Y Quest is a happy marriage between an ocean going yacht and fully equipped dive vessel that can take you wherever you want to go to explore and dive.
S/Y Quest takes 6 guests, accommodated in 3 comfortable 2 bed cabins. With a maximum of 9 onboard, 6 guest and 3 crew she is never crowded.
The cabins features an upper and lower seagoing comfortable bed. Each bed has an individual reading light and a shelf at the foot end for small storage as well as an individual fan.
There is storage space in a locker and under the bottom bunk. There are also two coat hooks.
All cabins have excellent ventilation with overhead deck hatches and fans, as well as ventilation through a dorade vent on deck.
There are two toilets with showers with hot and cold water.
The saloon seats comfortably 8 people. Open hatches and port lights admit the refreshing trade wind breezes while fans provide further ventilation.
