Cruising Area of Jopaju
With four spacious and elegant staterooms, Jopaju accommodates eight guests in style. Perfect for a family or four couples looking for a trip to remember!
The main salon´s features plush settees, muted colors and fine woodwork. Thanks to unusually wide, tinted windows, guests may enjoy broad views of the changing scenery while maintaining complete privacy. Sliding glass doors open from here to the aft deck, creating a delightful, al fresco extension to the salon. The aft deck´s banquette and table, plus bar with chairs and a TV, make this an especially popular gathering spot throughout the day, from breakfast in the fresh air to cocktails and casual dinners. On more formal evenings, the dining area at the forward end of the salon is the setting for fine dining.
Farther forward, yet another dining area adjacent to the galley is the spot for snacks, casual meals, and card games. It´s also a perfect place for kids to eat when parents prefer a quieter evening. The Galley is another highlight of this yacht – everyone wants to hang out in this country kitchen!
Up on the sundeck, guests have a choice of stretching out on the sunbeds, soaking in the Jacuzzi, or enjoying the shade beneath the hardtop. This elevated perch is an especially popular spot for surveying the sights when the yacht is underway. As soon as the day´s destination is reached, the crew can quickly lower the water toys overboard, creating even more room to relax. Up on the bow, a circular banquette invites conversation and offers a great view of the crew deploying the anchor or bringing the yacht alongside a dock.
A few steps down from the sundeck, the wheelhouse´s curved settee and table make a convenient place to read, look after a little business, or observe the skill with which the captain handles the boat.
All four of Jopaju’s guest staterooms are appointed with personal entertainment systems and ensuite bathrooms enhanced with fine marble. French doors lead through a private foyer into the full-beam master, with king bed, desk, settee, large closet, and ample drawers. The suite´s his-and-her facilities are connected by a central shower. Two queen staterooms are also located on this level. The VIP stateroom, on the main deck, has a private entrance.
