Tapas Description

The New Majestic 570 by Royal Cape Catamarans features a stylish new look with modernized hull lines. The design boasts modern features and the latest in nautical technology. There are benefits to functionality, safety and performance. The increased freeboard and larger windows provide access to more natural light and visibility, while the new elongated design provides substantially more space in the salon, galley, cockpit and cabins, as well as increased deck space, amplified seating and larger trampolines. The expansive decking is wide, flat and safe with sturdy rails and effective non-slip material covering the surface of the yacht. The expansive flybridge provides incredible panoramic 360-degree views, dining and lounging options and the unique space at the aft yacht provides more dining options, a place to BBQ, fish, dive and wade with a dive platform that doubles as a tender lift. The interior space is unparalleled. A spacious galley with wrap around counter space opens to an interior dining space, which brings the total dining space options to three. On either side of galley are the hallways leading to the cabins. The hallways feature a pantry as well as an immense capacity for storage and lead to each cabin, which are set apart and separate, making each one feel like a private oasis. The Royal Cape stylish design is further complimented by the superior outfit and aftermarket items available on Tapas. 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.

Melody

Meet Melody, a 24-year-old culinary dynamo from Toronto, Canada. With a deep-seated passion for the sea and sailing, Melody has navigated through both professional and personal pursuits with a zest for adventure. For the past two years, she´s been cooking up a storm as a private chef on sailing boats in the Mediterranean and Caribbean.

When Melody isn´t working on a boat, she enjoys skiing and touring in the mountains. She also likes playing golf, tennis, or pickleball because she enjoys the company and competition.

Melody cares a lot about doing things well and making people feel welcome, she loves using top-quality ingredients to make delicious meals. She´s a friendly and hardworking team player who´s always eager to help out. Melody believes that food is a big part of any trip, so she makes sure her dishes are not only tasty but also picture-perfect Instagram worthy.

Friendly, funny, and fuelled by a love for what she does, Melody´s goal is to keep exploring the world while serving up new and exciting dishes to her crew and guests.


Rolf

Meet Rolf, a Viking at heart from the stunning fjords of Norway. With an undying love for sailing, he´s dedicated to sharing the thrill of the open sea with others. Nothing brings Rolf more joy than seeing the excitement on someone´s face as they raise their first sail. After a day of adventure, he savors dropping anchor in a peaceful bay, enjoying a feast prepared by the onboard chef.

Rolf´s journey with the sea began racing dinghies along Norway´s coastline. His talent led him to international competitions and coaching at just 15. Now, as a Captain, he´s tackled daring voyages, including crossing the Atlantic.

With over 15,000 miles of experience and extensive navigation skills, he has become adept at handling vessels and ensuring the safety and comfort of passengers. Rolf possesses a knack for problem-solving, qualities that have proven invaluable in his role as a captain.

In addition to his sailing endeavours, Rolf has also worked in the Adriatic Sea, gaining valuable experience in crew management, vessel maintenance, and delivering exceptional customer service. Sailing isn´t merely a profession for him; it´s his life´s passion, driving him to share the thrill with all who join him on the waves.

Tapas Guest Reviews

February 2024

Where to begin. Trip of a lifetime and hopefully on we plan to take again and again if you will have us. The planning and details were top notch, not to mention two perfect gentlemen. We will miss our 5-star meals and the sailing, not to mention the laughs and memories made. Thank you for truly making this a perfect vacation. Memories we will never forget.

December 2023

This has been the most relaxing and beautiful vacation of my life. We spent a week with our four adult kids on Tapas. Captain Rob and Chef Ashley took incredible care of us. They planned perfect, itineraries and menus. The boat is also a gem. We spent several hours a day relaxing on the fly bridge - talking, playing cards, reading and also enjoying the view. And if you have tall people in your group, the tall ceilings are great. Three of our kids are taller than 6´8´ and they were comfortable instead o crouching. But really, the crew made the trip so wonderful. Both were so gracious and helpful which made it easy. We take home many fond memories of quiet moorings, beautiful beach bars, volleyball on the beach, swimming with fish and turtles and lingering at the table after delicious meals. I am already scheming about coming back!

November 20, 2023

My wife and I, and 7 or our closest friends just completed a magnificent 6 days aboard the Tapas, piloted by Rob and his partner Jackie. The following are characteristics of our experience:

The professionalism of the crew is outstanding - clearly 5 star - gold star.
Service is comparable to any highly rated Michelin restaurant.
Menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner are top quality.
Cleanliness - the living quarters are spotless and kept that way.
Cordiality - both Rob and Jackie make you feel right at home.
The ship - One of the finest we have been on. It is engineered both structurally and comfortably.
In closing, I will say this has been the best vacation we have ever been on, and my wife and I have traveled extensively (Europe, Middle East, South America, and numerous cruises. This experience has been the best, made the best by Rob and Jackie!

November 2023

To Rob & Jackie,

you´ve been the best hosts and we´ve all absolutely loved our time on board Tapas! It´s hard to pick a highlight, from Robs´ famous painkiller cocktail (better than Soggy Dollar) to Jackie´s delicious samosas and snapper risotto, swimming to The Baths and snorkeling at The Indians, we´ve enjoyed every moment.

Wishing you both the best of luck with the rest of the season. We´re envious of the other guests who will be sailing with you!

Thanks so much,
Elena
