Cruising Area of Brazil
Built by Heesen in the Netherlands, M/Y Brazil stands for Dutch shipbuilding quality at its best. This luxurious 40 meter vessel has operated all over the world and thus proven to be an oceangoing vessel while enjoying all the amenities you can expect from a Heesen. She is currently ready for charter throughout the Adriatic Sea, in Croatia, Montenegro & Italy.
She comfortably sleeps 10 guests in 5 staterooms including a full beam master cabin with exceptional volumes for a vessel this size, as well as his and hers bathrooms. To ensure the best service possible, she runs with a crew of 8 during charters.
She had a recent refit in 2016 and has an upgraded, integrated sound and entertainment system throughout the vessel. This year we’ve also added a T/T 9.5m Scanner, for even more comfort on trips away from the main vessel.
Brazil has had major upgrades regarding her entertainment and communications system onboard. Flat screens in all cabins, main salon and Skybar including Apple powered TV boxes (Netflix etc). Also an extensive offline music/movies and series library on demand. Throughout the vessel sound equipment has been upgraded to the latest SONOS players which are accessible through smartphones or tablets to play your own playlists.

After travelling the world for close to ten years and experiencing some of the world’s finest cuisines first hand something started brewing inside Frank Crab, and that planted seed grew into what is now his driving passion for food. During travels in the Middle East, Asia and Central America he discovered the variety of flavours and spices those parts of the world have to offer. Returning home, he enlisted in culinary school and after 3 years of training worked in several restaurants in Belgium, leading to opening his own restaurant in 2006.
In 2011 Frank was offered a winter season chef position in a private chalet in the French Alpes, La Grave. The chalet takes up to 38 customers and he combined French classic cuisine with the influences of the food discovered during his travels. In the off seasons he worked as a freelance chef for some of Belgium’s Michelin star chefs. This elevated his skill set and refined his own dishes to the fine dining level.

Brazil Guest Reviews
First Charter 2019
First Charter 2019:
I can’t begin to describe how pleased we are with the Brazil. First of all, the yacht is above category. It is an engineering marvel. And beautiful in every respect. My wife says she will never take another cruise because nothing could compare with the Brazil.
Second, the crew was unbelievable. They were attentive, professional, and they worked their fannies off. And maybe most important, they worked together as a team. I feel like I have (8) new best friends. I am amazed how you can hire such excellent staff.
But most important is your Captain Olav. His leadership and expertise is also above category. And he is only 26 years old. Absolutely astonishing. He is mature and talented way beyond his years. You must be very proud.
Thank you so much for letting us use your yacht. All of my family will agree , it was the trip of a life time. If I can ever be a reference for you or Olav, I would be honored.
Ain’t life grand!

We frequently say we like to do business with people who share our core values, so it´s no surprise you all observe the same mentality of (_____ Engineering´s Core Values): Zero injury and genuine concern for others; Continuous improvement; Enthusiastic teamwork & celebration; Never walk away from a problem.
