Cruising Area of Island Girl
Island Girl Description
ISLAND GIRL, Hatteras 75, is an excellent option for island hopping in the Bahamas, or exploring the coast and Keys of Florida. Charter guests who want to get where they’re going fast and comfortably will appreciate her top speed of 23 knots. The ambiance aboard is casual elegance; dress up for formal dining, dress down to unwind in the salon, or barely dress at all to lounge on deck. ISLAND GIRL is designed to provide a relaxing, charter vacation to suit all preferences.
The main deck features an open plan layout. The salon has plush sofa seating and a 42” wide-screen TV that can be viewed in an up or down position. The furnishings and fabrics in soft earth tones create a welcome environment. Forward of the lounge is the formal dining area that overlooks the open galley. A cute, marble-topped bistro table with booth seating and lovely views is an informal option just off the galley.
ISLAND GIRL’S large aft deck is a lovely space for al fresco dining under protective cover. The large table and chairs accommodate the entire charter group. There’s a TV here as well, so nobody need worry about missing the game. A few steps down access the swim platform. Dangle your feet in the water, throw in a fishing line, or dive right into the sea.
Accommodations are for six guests in three spacious staterooms. The master stateroom has a king size bed, roomy private bathroom, a generous amount of built-in storage and full entertainment center. Two guest staterooms have walk-around queen size beds and en suite facilities.
The favorite place for cruising in comfort is the flybridge. The sea air is sweet and the views are magnificent. Outfitted with a surround of banquette seating, it’s a perfect party space. There’s also a fully-equipped bar with plush, padded barstools.

Chef/Stew Liz Wilkins
Cathrina Wilkens, more affectionately known as Lizzie, was raised in South Africa with two obsessions; cooking and the ocean. Before she could read she could wield a potato peeler. She loved being in the kitchen with Mom and Grandma, cooking up a storm and preserving all the fruits of their farm in Pretoria. She says, “Grandma’s kitchen opened first thing in the morning when Grandpa’s feet hit the ground. The daily menu was fit for a 5-star restaurant. School holidays, she traded her apron for a swimsuit and the beaches of Durban, where she swam in the ocean from morning till evening with brothers, sisters and Dad.
Lizzie has been wielding that potato peeler in restaurants, hotels, lodges and yachts ever since. She has been an apprentice to top chefs around the world. She has traveled throughout Europe, England, America, Africa, Oman and the Caribbean to assimilate flavors and techniques. She explains her innovative ‘Liz Style’, “I take a taste of all the places I have been and fuse that into one dish. I love Asian flavors so there is always a hint of Asia in my dishes. My menu is healthy, light, with an explosion of flavors.”
Lizzie is a precious asset on ISLAND GIRL. She has lots of experience with special diets and requests and goes out of her way to make sure the guests are happy and their taste buds are even happier. She is thrilled to be aboard ISLAND GIRL because she believes a great crew makes the charter extra special, and the crew aboard ISLAND GIRL is superb.
