Destiny III Description

DESTINY III is a Leopard 46 luxury sailing catamaran designed for blue-water cruising. This performance cat will get you where you want to go in a hurry. Built in South Africa by Robertson and Caine, she was designed by Gino Morelli and Pete Melvin to cruise in comfort.

The 25’ beam on DESTINY III creates voluminous interior space. In the main saloon, the large banquette table with U-shaped seating comfortably accommodates the entire charter party for snacks, meals and board games. Open the large sliding doors from the salon to the cockpit to create one vast, social space.

A hardtop that extends out over the cockpit from the saloon offers protective, cooling shade. This is where guests enjoy dining al fresco at the large table with seating for eight, cool sea breezes and panoramic views. This is also a favorite spot for shade-lovers to relax with a beverage while underway. For sun worshippers, nothing beats riding up front on the huge trampoline.

DESTINY III accommodates six guests in three queen-berth cabins. Each cabin is en suite, with separate shower stall and electric toilet. Cabins are air conditioned and opening hatches and portholes provide good ventilation.

DESTINY III is an excellent option for couples, friends and families who want to experience the Bahamas. Go sailing, swimming snorkeling, diving and exploring. Let the professional crew on DESTINY III share the best of the best of this island paradise. Launch a cruise to remember!

Scott and Cara hail from the Miami area.
While always enjoying the pleasures of the sea, they have been boating the waters of Florida, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean for over 40 years. Scott´s part time job while in high school was as a mate on a fishing boat on Miami Beach.
They both fled from their successful corporate jobs 16 years ago to move to the Virgin Islands and sail the Caribbean. After five years of chartering in the Caribbean, they returned to their home state of Florida. They have spent the last 11 years cruising and running charters in the waters of the Florida Keys and the Bahamas.
They are happy to show you the Bahamas. Their personal experience and knowledge - including the top water play and party spots - are a bonus for any guest. They have run hundreds of charters over their years of being professional captains and are well known in the charter business. They ran a very successful marketing campaign as the Captain/Crew of the Heineken yacht and have also captained larger motoryachts on trips from Maine to the Caribbean.
In their off time, they are either traveling around the country in their antique Airstream trailer or riding their motorcycles. They also own a Bed & Breakfast in the North Carolina mountains.
Scott and Cara are both U.S.C.G. Captains. They make for a dynamic team whose fun-loving strengths will ensure that you have the most memorable vacation of your life. They look forward to welcoming you aboard.

Captain Matthew and Chef Jennica are amazing hosts! My husband and I felt so welcomed and all our needs and wants were anticipated by our hosts. We were so comfortable and well fed! Chef Jennica really knows how to put out a lovely melt-in-your-mouth meal! All in all we had a fabulous time on beautiful yacht with wonderful hosts in one of the most beautiful locations on the planet, Exuma Bahamas. Highly recommended!!! – Taj

Spectacular!!

I have to tell you this was an awesome trip!!! The boat is spectacular, clean and luxurious, with all the added modern needs, like your own ensuite ,wifi and surround sound, while cruising in the Bahamas. The fresh food was delicious and healthy. The Vitamix makes great pina colada and juices too! Thank You!! Jennica and Matthew for being such great hosts, that made us feel safe and relaxed on such a great big Ocean Adventure! If you have never been on a boat in the Caribbean then you should try it!
– Michelle

Far Exceeded Our Expectations!

Dear Captain Matt and Jennica, Thank you for an amazing stay aboard. We fell in love with Exuma Islands during our stay, many thanks to you for showing us the treasures and gorgeous secrets these islands hold. The adventures and togetherness our families experienced far exceeded our expectations. Thank you for keeping our families safe during our travels. Jennica, your cooking is spectacular! All six of us ranging from ages 8 to 52 loved your creations you created from scratch. You spoiled us and we loved it! We will surely miss your lasagna, as well as the two of you! We hope to sail with you again!
– Sincerely, Holly and family
