Sun Daze Description

The Bali 5.4 is a ´Multihull of the Year´ award-winning catamaran. The design was new to the market in 2019 and provided a fresh approach to sailing. It is revolutionary in how space is accessed, with deliberate attention to flow and open space and it succeeds in producing a scale that feels less like a boat, and more like an upscale floating condominium. Bali catamarans are known and appreciated for their unparalleled success in blending luxury, space, and performance; producing a sailing experience that is unparalleled. This new design further capitalizes on that reputation with the advent of the ´Bali garage door´ that is the centerpiece of the yacht. It allows for the aft wall of the yacht to simply disappear, opening up the back of the yacht to an unobstructed view of paradise. This also affords indoor/outdoor dining options and gives the ever-present Caribbean breeze ample opportunity to make its way through the yacht with ease. With her solid foredeck gone are the forward trampolines, replaced by a large relaxing lounge area complete with cushions for sunbathing. A full-sized door provides access directly from the lounge area into the salon, allowing free movement through the yacht. A walk up to the flybridge unveils a seating area perfect for cocktails and taking in sunsets. There is also another area for sunbathing on the flybridge where you can take in the sights of the islands from the highest vantage point on the yacht. The Bali open space design is further complimented by the superior outfit and aftermarket items available on Sun Daze. No detail has been left unnoticed from the fine linens, pillows and throws to the wine glasses, serving and flatware that make every day feel luxurious. She has been stocked full with every appliance and kitchen accessory to allow the chef to fully showcase the mastery of their art. And the water toys abound, allowing guests to fully experience all the Caribbean has to offer, both in and out of the water. Sun Daze will accommodate 8 charter guests in 3 spacious queen cabins and 1 sprawling master cabin for those who desire more space. She is a brand new 2023 sailing catamaran with teak, hard top, hydraulic lift, solar panels, air conditioning, water maker, ice maker, full sized refrigerator, a fully customizable menu, Caribbean made ecofriendly and reef safe toiletries, a bar stocked to guest preference, coffee/espresso machine, rendezvous scuba diving, snorkeling gear, underwater scooters, wakeboard, stand up paddle board, 10 ft. floating dock, pool noodles, fishing gear, board and card games, television in the salon, Fusion 3 Bluetooth enabled sound system and Sun Daze giveaways.

Pieter and Kiki met in the summer of 2021 in Greece, where they worked together for the first time. They immediately realized that they made an amazing team. Since then they’ve done many charters together and are very happy to finally be working together full-time in the Caribbean on beautiful yacht Sun Daze. With both of their combined experience, you will be in confident and safe hands. They can’t wait to show you the wonders of the BVI and ensure an amazing holiday!

CAPTAIN
Pieter van Steenis
Having grown up in The Netherlands in a sailing family there was no getting around it, sailing has been in his blood ever since he set foot on the earth. With over 3 decades of sailing experience in many locations across the planet, varying from the home grounds of the North Sea, to the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and Caribbean Sea, Pieter can rightfully say you´re in safe hands.

Prior to starting his professional career as captain in 2019, Pieter worked at Tesla for 6 years. He worked in Europe as well as in Australia managing various teams working on a more sustainable future. After 6 years the ocean was calling and he decided to take a 3 month sabbatical to go sailing which escalated into quitting his career at Tesla and a move to living on the water full-time.

Since then he has worked as delivery captain, sailing instructor and charter captain across the Mediterranean and Caribbean. He is a passionate kite surfer and water sports fanatic and would love to teach you a thing or two about life at sea!

CHEF
Kiki Bouman

Growing up in a small city in The Netherlands, Kiki has always had a desire for exploring the world. In her early days her parents took her and her siblings to a wide variety of restaurants, in all sorts of countries. This really kickstarted her love for food and when she turned 18 she landed her first job as a line cook in a French Bistro. Over the course of 7 years Kiki has worked in several restaurants and has managed to work her way up to a sous-chef at French/Asian fine dining restaurant.

Next to her love for food she is also a passionate traveler and explorer. She knew there had to be a way to combine the two and when she discovered the world of yachting, she decided to quit her job and give it a shot. Fair to say she hasn´t looked back since!

Going into her third full season on the water, she´s become a confident yacht chef with plenty of experience. She has worked in various places, including the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and French Polynesia.

She loves to experiment with flavors from all over the world, and enjoys sharing these with her guests. She believes that one should never stop learning, and therefore she challenges herself to try something new in the kitchen every week. Kiki finds joy in sharing her cooking with others and can´t wait to surprise you with her food!

Sun Daze Guest Reviews

April 2024

Truly a special week! The BVI was incredible and everything I imagined it would be. I feel so lucky to have your tow as our crew, you are what made the trip so amazing! Kiki, thanks for making every meal my new favorite food, and for being so friendly. Peter, thanks for leading the way! I plan on seeing you both again!

March 2024

Piet & Kiki - Thank you for your hospitality. We had the best week aboard Sun Daze. Visiting Willie T´s, The Baths, meeting Davide, Soggy Dollar and touring Necker are just a few of the many wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. And Kiki, your chef talents are outstanding! We hope to see you both again some time.

One of the best trips I´ve ever been on! Pieter and Kiki made it so much fun. Even as a picky eater, Kiki made the BEST meals and was so creative and was also such an amazing friend. Pieter always brought positive energy to the boat and was always excited to teach us new things.

This trip was so fun, Maisy & I had the best time. Everything was amazing. It was lots of fun playing games on the boat including teaching Pieter new card games. Thank you both so much!
