Highjinks Description

What are you looking for in your vacation? If you are aiming to take your family and friends on a memorable journey, living an adventurous, yet also relaxing and comfortable, tour among the magnificent Greek islands, sailing through the crystal blue seas of the Aegean or the Ionian, then this impressive and luxurious boat, HIGH JINKS SANYA 57, a definitively elegant and innovative catamaran with a unique, contemporary design by FOUNTAINE PAJOT, is going to fulfil all your desires and expectations.

With all the pleasures of the sea, with the distinctive comfort, fixtures and services you´ve come to expect from our Flagship Class, HIGH JINKS will embrace you and will book a place in your heart. The memories you will create on this boat, will be cherished for ever.

HIGH JINKS can accommodate up to 8 guests in 1 King size cabin, which features an exclusive suite with a lounge, desk and spacious designer bathroom and three generous Queen size cabins, all equipped with private bathroom facilities. All cabins have been especially designed for maximum comfort and space and have full air-conditioning, TV, DVD and stereo system integrated.

HIGH JINKS SANYA 57 offers the luxury and comfort of a fine hotel. Wide staircases beckon to the tranquility and privacy of beautifully appointed cabins.

The salon, with its soft colors and flexible seating areas is the perfect place, if you want to hide from the sun and yet not loose contact through the panoramic view with the outside world or if you just want to guess what kind of mouth-watering, delicious culinary delicacies your Chef is going to prepare for you.

The aft deck, where you probably will spend most of your time at, is stylishly designed for your comfort, either when gathering around the table to enjoy a fabulous meal, filling the air with Mediterranean flavors, or simply relaxing, with an aperitif in your hand, after an exhausting day, playing with the numerous water toys, such as water skis, kayaks, paddle board, wake board, knee board, tubes, snorkeling gear etc., you have on board. Then again if you like fishing and catch something, your Chef can prepare it for you the same day and serve it to you in the most delicious way, you can imagine.

The fore deck is the absolute ideal area for sun-bathing on comfortable sun mattresses, a trampoline, and the best location, if you see any dolphins swimming alongside the boat. The Fly-bridge is the ultimate favorite place for enjoying a glass of champagne accompanied by a finger-licking hors d´oeuvre, while gazing onto the horizon and harmoniously savouring the dreamlike scenery during a sunset.

The sailing catamaran HIGH JINKS SANYA 57 will bring you to the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean while traveling in all comfort and privacy. Guided by her crew you will yourself discover the magnificent islands, nature and culture and most importantly the magnificent clarity of the Greek crystal blue waters.

Modern and minimal in design with an excellent crew of three.

Dear loving crew – Oh captain, my captain;
Los Ondas/ pamino/Nondas and Phoebe
We had a great time cruising around the Cyclades and discovering the Greek preciosities. The most beautiful blue waters we’ve ever seen!
The hospitality, good will and amazing flavors you prouded us with made our experience so special.
Thank you for making Highjinks our home for the past week and for making our holiday so fun and unforgettable – a trip to be forever in our minds and hearts.
Love, Luiza, Duca, Pedro, Silvia

Thank you, thank you dear Pantelis, Phoebe and Nontas for our Greek Island Odyssey.
We could not have enjoyed our selves more and the week passed all too quickly.
Pantelis you were perfect skipper – so very competent and caring , Phoebe your cooking was sublime and Nontas you were so great on board and helping with watersports and being generally charming!
All in all ***** Five stars
Huge thanks,
Tessa and Bryan Pascoe U.K.
P.S. Three cheers for “HIGHJINKS”

Thank you so much to all of you – Pantelis, Phoebe and Nontas.
We had and unforgettable week full of adventure and exploration for the kids. We loved all the little gems of bays and beaches and caves, each place so different from the next. The food was an amazing experience at every meal.
Phoebe, you are truly talented and I think Adele appreciated more than everyone. She hasn’t stopped telling me all week that I need to take cooking classes to be more like you! Nontas, thank you for always keeping an eye out on Mikel Kai, our terrible two year old, and being a fun joy to be all week. We really loved it! Thank you crew!

This is our last night on an extraordinary week as lucky recipients of your gracious care. A quick survey of our group reveals that sometimes you only have to wait 20 years to experience and store a lifetime-long wonderful memory and sometimes one must wait much longer. Either way, we all now have warm, happy memories to call upon forever.
When I return home, people will ask me how was the vacation – and although I try to do it justice , in the end, I will be speechless and fulfilled all at once.
And so – the greatest gift of all is revealed.
Wishing each of you peace and love in life.
Until next year, Annie Andrews and crew Davenport.

This is Walter Stuart Davenport reporting from a “Greek Vacation”. It has been 3 days of this cruise and moral is running low. Food is running out leaving the rest of us to group up and started to become cannibles and I am ashamed to say that I have now not not tasted human flesh. It reminds me a bit of boiled fish, or over cooked spaghetti (is that how you spell it?)
We can see land all around us but we are all too lazy to leave the boat to get actual food. I hope to survive this trip and see my future “people that care about me”. Although the chances of that are unlikely considering that most find me obnoxious and ugly. I think it all started when I was kid and I disappointed my father so much that we had a heart attack out of pure shame. After that no one seemed to start calling him Fredrick. I tried calling him Fred one time and he told me that we weren’t in a nick name basis. After we changed his last name so that he could claim to not be related to me. I had to start calling him count Von Zeravich. It’s a cool name. Wow you are a good listner, we should get coffee sometime and do this again, except I am on a horror boat. Oh no I am being eaten.
Ahhhhhh Mr. Davenport
