Apricity Description

Apricity is a 2023 Bali 4.6. The Bali 4.6 design is a stand out among her peers. The design naturally lets in ventilation and an abundance of light, this being the very definition of the OpenSpace concept. The Bali 4.6 boasts delightful seating where well-being and comfort are the order of the day. Bali catamarans are known and appreciated for their unparalleled success in blending luxury, space, and performance, producing a sailing experience that is unparalleled. This new design further capitalizes on that reputation with the advent of the ´Bali garage door,´ which is the centerpiece of the yacht. It allows for the aft wall of the yacht to simply disappear, opening up the back of the yacht to an unobstructed view of paradise. This also affords indoor/outdoor dining options and gives the ever-present Caribbean breeze ample opportunity to make its way through the yacht with ease. With her solid foredeck gone are the forward trampolines, replaced by a large relaxing lounge area complete with cushions for sunbathing. A full-sized door provides access directly from the lounge area into the salon, allowing free movement through the yacht. A walk up to the flybridge unveils a seating area perfect for cocktails and taking in sunsets. There is also another area for sunbathing on the flybridge, where you can take in the sights of the islands from the highest vantage point on the yacht. The Bali open space design is further complimented by the superior outfit and aftermarket items available on Apricity. No detail has been left unnoticed, from the fine linens, pillows, and throws to the wine glasses, serving and flatware that make every day feel luxurious. She has been stocked full with every appliance and kitchen accessory to allow the chef to fully showcase the mastery of their art. And the water toys abound, allowing guests to fully experience all the Caribbean has to offer, both in and out of the water. Apricity will accommodate 8 charter guests in 2 spacious queen cabins and 1 additional queen cabin that shares space with twin bunk beds. That space can be used for luggage storage in the case of 6 guests or provides a shared cabin for parents and small children. She has a hard top, solar panels, air conditioning, a water maker, ice maker, full-sized refrigerator, a fully customizable menu, Caribbean-made eco-friendly and reef-safe toiletries, a bar stocked to guest preference, coffee/espresso machine, snorkeling gear, underwater scooters, subwing, wakeboard, water skis, stand up paddle boards, towable water tube, 10 ft. floating dock, pool noodles, fishing gear, board and card games, a television in the salon, Fusion 3 Bluetooth enabled sound system and Apricity giveaways.

CAPTAIN
Mente Wester

Mente is a seasoned sailor with a lifelong passion for water sports. From the age of 6 he was drawn to the water and started sailing on lasers and Hobie cats. While growing up in the Netherlands, almost all of Mente´s free time would be spent sailing, and eventually he became a sailing instructor, passing on his love for the sport to others.

At the age of 16, Mente joined School at Sea, a 6 month program, covering over 11,000 miles, all while following the high school curriculum on board. It was this journey that sparked his interest in ocean sailing.

Following high school, Mente joined the 249ft 3-masted Clipper Stad Amsterdam. He worked on deck for 3 years, while also pursuing a Maritime Officer´s education at Enkhuizen Nautical College.

After those 3 years of sailing around the world, Mente pursued an academic Bachelor in Science & Innovation Management, as well as a Masters Degree in Entrepreneurship. During this time, he would also run charters in Croatia and Sardinia over the summer. Now that he has successfully completed his degrees, he eagerly has returned to sailing in the BVI.

Mente loves sharing his sailing knowledge and passion with guests just as much as he enjoys showing them the blue world both above and below the water´s surface. Together, Mente and Annick embody the spirit of adventure and hospitality, and are ready to welcome you aboard for an unforgettable journey on board Apricity.

CHEF
Annick Van Der Plas

Introducing Annick, who grew up in the Netherlands and has been sailing since she was a little girl. Whether through sailing vacations or sailing camps, she was always around water. Her journey into hospitality began at the age of 14 when she started working at a restaurant, where her positive energy and welcoming smile quickly became her signature. Her passion for hospitality led her to the International Hospitality School in the Netherlands, where she honed her skills and transformed her love for hospitality and culinary arts into a career. During her studies, she pursued an internship at a luxury hotel in Cape Town.

Surrounded by boats and water her entire life, Annick couldn´t resist the sensation of the wind in her hair and the salt on her skin. After completing her studies, she combined her two passions and applied to work aboard the Stad Amsterdam, a 3-masted tall ship, where she sailed the world as a Hospitality Manager. The challenges brought on by COVID led her to transition to a land-based job and after spending 2.5 years behind a desk, Annick is thrilled to be back on the water where she belongs.

Annick owns her own 27ft sailboat and has lived on a houseboat in Amsterdam with Mente. Her greatest joy is providing friends & family with a true five-star experience on her sailboat or hosting dinner parties on their houseboat. She loves experimenting with new dishes, with Italian cuisine being her favorite. If you have any delicious Italian recipes, Annick is always eager to prepare them for you. She can´t wait to share the wonders of Apricity with you and create unforgettable memories together on the water!

Apricity Guest Reviews

January 2024

We don´t really know where to begin. If we were to summarize our journey with THE best team - Will & Kylie :) Great itinerary planning - Norman, Peter, Salt, Gordon, Leeboy, Guana and Sandy Cay.​

The best food and some super surprising dishes! So diverse, sophisticated and well prepared. Thank you Kylie!

​The best captain in the BVI - you took such a good care of us! From water scooters to masks to dingy rides . . . Also - paddle boards, go pro camera and last but not least - the captain cocktail! - it´s the best :)

Apricity will be remembered as an incredible experience in the BVI, one that will get us back sooner than later.

Thank you from all of us. P.S. If you ever come to PR - please keep in touch.

January 2024

A family sailed on Apricity, in the British Virgin Islands, filled with joy and glee. Father Andy, with daughters Abbey and Bella, Mother Reina, with son Barrett and daughter Quinn, oh what a stellar crew! They embarked on a New Year´s trip, exploring the beauty of the ocean, on a catamaran ship. At Foxy´s in Jost Van Dyke, the celebrated the night. With laughter and cheer, under the starry light. Snorkeling in Peter Island, they dove deep, discovering the wonders of the sea, in a world so unique. Hiking the Bath in Virgin Gorda, a true natural delight. Captain Will guided them with skill and grace, navigating the waters, at a steady pace. Chef Kylie prepared meals, delicious and healthy, feeding their bodies and souls with flavors so wealthy.

The Apricity sailed, with love and delight, a journey of togetherness, shining so bright.
