Matrix 76′ Tranquility

Matrix 76′ Tranquility launched in South Africa! LUXURY CHARTERING for 12 guests

Updated Information and Crew for Tranquility!

Congratulation Matt and Catherine! I remember Matt saying to me a decade ago when they owned and operated Swish that the key to charters was the numbers. And the yacht they had just did not have the capacity for the business. Matt O’Hayer has sold Swish, Catherine and Matt have started their own yacht charter brokerage AND started up a Large Vital Farms. Free range egg company. They have now just finished launching their beautiful Brand new Matrix 76′ named Tranquility.

Tranquility takes up to 12 guests. With the experienced charter veterans that were involved with the design and building, it should be a charterers dream!

I have a few pictures from the launch of Tranquility and it will soon be making its way across the Atlantic to its new home in the British Virgin Islands to commence charters.

“I am pleased to announce the successful launch of the newest addition to the charter catamaran fleet.  ‘TRANQUILITY’ is hull # 1 of the newest Matrix 76′ design, the Explorer 760.

2 Matrix 76' Tranquility launched in South Africa! LUXURY CHARTERING for 12 guests Raising the mast on Tranquility Charter Yacht

Designed by Matrix in consultation with 5 of the top charter captains and the BVI’s top charter engineer, she is a true 12 passenger, 6 cabin yacht:

   ·       She has 6 Guest Cabins, all with en suite:
              o   1 King (convertible to twins)
              o   3  Queens
              o   2 Twins (4 twin beds in total)
              o   5 of the 6 cabins have glass enclosed showers (1 wet head in one of the twins)
  ·       Galley up, cabins down.
  ·       Home theatre seating for 12+ with big screen.
  ·       Flybridge seating for 20.
  ·       Massive trampoline area.
  ·       And, at 12 tons lighter than the Matrix Silhouette 76’s, she’s faster too!
  ·       Great wine “cellar” chosen by 2 amazing sommaliers
  ·       She also has a fantastic crew of 4:
             o   Myself (Arnold) and Rica (formerly of Bliss, Kings Ransom and Akasha)
             o   Roelof and Nikita (formerly of Zingara)
So you’ll get the same level of service that you’d expect from a Matrix 76.

Our calendar is currently open from April 1 onward, but we expect to move this up to March 15 as we get closer to Tortola.

Tranquility’s intended route from Cape Town to the Virgin Islands. #4 is the Equator at 30 degrees West, keeping us away from Brazil and a possible close reach. This should keep us on a down wind run or broad reach throughout our trip. We are planning a stop at St Helena (#3, more on this later).
