With beautifully maintained teak decks, and classical varnished hand rails, Lady Eugenie’s spacious decks are the perfect setting for sunbathing and sightseeing while the central cockpit provides plenty of comfortable seating, with a picturesque alfresco dining setting: a magical place to be at sunset.
Onboard are four beautifully decorated, queen sized staterooms, all with air-conditioning, private bathrooms and showers and during the evening you can relax in the delightful and spacious saloon with dining table and comfortable lounge.
Her professionally equipped, separate galley for the chef guarantees delicious meals made from local produce. Lady Eugenie has a stable centre console tender, to provide the opportunity for guests to get that little bit closer to nature, with snorkeling and access to the pristine beaches.
