Engineer - Necker Belle

Sir Richard Branson’s magnificent 32 meter (105ft) catamaran. With space on board for up to 12 guests can choose from one of four stylish cabins, each with an en-suite bathroom, flat screen TV and iPod docking station, or the comfy saloon area with double bed and a privacy screen at night.

The master cabin offers stunning views of the ocean through large windows. This room has ample storage space along with a comfy queen size bed, private bathroom with a double basin and shower room. Two double VIP guest cabins can be arranged into twins and both have a junior version of the Master Suite’s bathroom with shower room. One Guest Cabin with an en suite (double bed only)

In the evenings an area of the main saloon can be converted to sleep an additional two people, with a privacy screen, separate toilet and shower. Necker Belle’s indoor areas are light and airy and offer undisturbed views as she cruises two meters above the water. The amazingly spacious living area spans almost the full-beam of the main deck. The main salon features a huge 52 inch flat screen TV, with a bar and service area close by. The style of Virgin Limited Edition is professional but friendly and informal, brilliant delivery without the gold buttoned white jackets – think Richard and you’ll get it!

Necker Belle is based in the BVI’s all year round and generally moored off Moskito Island. It is available for weekly charters but is also used as a “floating hotel” to add capacity to guests on either island. She also is available for day sails.
