Double Down Description

DOUBLE DOWN is a brand new 2018 Seventy 8 Lagoon motor yacht that comfortable sleeps 6 guests in 3 en-suite cabins. Due to her 36ft beam, DOUBLE DOWN provides guests the volume of a much larger yacht both in the sleeping accommodations, main salon & exterior deck spaces.

Double Down has 3 dining areas: formal dining is found in the main salon & the aft deck has a nice covered settee great for enjoying breakfast or dinner outside. The third dining area is on the upper deck adjacent to the full-service bar. This space will be great to enjoy lunch or dining under the stars where guests can enjoy a 360 degree view.
Easy walk around deck leads you forward to the voluminous deck which has a sunken lounge area that can be accessed directly from a door leading to the interior main salon. Forward of that is an epic space one can only expect to find on yachts well over 100ft. The sundeck is covered by a hard top with retractable sunroof and has the upper helm station, full bar, exterior dining, and loose furniture.

Double Down Guest Reviews

August 2019 Croatia

The week of sailing on Double Down Catamaran has been magical because of a beautiful boat, Captain Murray and his crew. We have enjoyed very much sailing Croatia in a beautiful well designed boat and the amazing crew. We have been chartering bigger boats every summer for years. We have decided to try a catamaran to be able to enjoy ducking in shallower water, and it was an excellent experience. The crew of Double Down really impressed us as being professional, accommodating and always attentive with a smile. Captain Murray is very impressive leader and always informative and aware of every little details. Alize is so impressive with her energy and attentiveness and help, we called her Wonder Woman. Francisca making sure we all are very comfortable and taken care of with her reply “of course”. The Chef prepared delicious meals full meals as we dined on board all the time, always with fresh ingredients and plenty of flavors.
We do look forward to charter the same boat with the same crew, for a longer period during next summer, but we prefer to sail different destinations every year.
