Welcome, Charter Oceanis 45 ‘Malabar’

It was with much excitement and anticipation that ‘Malabar’, Perfect Sailing’s new charter Oceanis 45 arrived quietly in Bozburun.

The owners brought her in smoothly, as they had had six weeks practice navigating her safely from her launch in Perpignan, France.

In conversation over a celebratory drink, owner’s James & Carol remarked “She is everything we had hoped for and more. She took whatever we threw at her, and kept us comfortable and safe. We love her”

Naturally we are delighted to welcome another new yacht this year. She arrives in our fleet at a time when some people are anxious about visiting this delightful part of the ‘Turkish Turquoise Coast’ and Turkey in general. The owners have demonstrated their confidence and prior experience, that the area is nothing like the media seem to suggest. This is a fantastic place to sail and the people are so lovely and welcoming.

Perfect Sailing has just under two weeks to prepare her for her first charter. There will be lots of cleaning and polishing, plus the addition of those things our charter guests love, like onboard Wi-Fi and quality linen & towels etc, plus all the little things that get taken for granted but would be missed if not onboard, like quality cockpit cushions, playing cards & board games for those quiet relaxing nights with friends or family under the clear starry sky.

‘Malabar’ is a rather special Oceanis 45, as she has the new 2016 light oak interior which gives her a very light, airy and modern feel. She has a high specification which includes a cockpit remote control windlass with chain counter, and very cool 7″ chart plotter repeater screens at each helm, so you can focus on making her sail fast. Her transom is of the modern drop down swim platform type, but includes the infra red remote control operation. There have been many small additions such as additional shelves in some lockers to make her even more comfortable.
