YACHT INTRODUCTION

Among the many intriguing features of the Leopard 58, the expansive flybridge with seating for up to 10 people and a large coffe table is one of the most exciting. It is perfect for lounging and taking in beautiful panoramic views and watching movies on the 82' outdoor theater screen.
The large open aft deck and forward cockpit offer another choice with ample space for alfresco dining and lounging.  The flybridge, the aft deck and forward cockpit are all covered in TekDek, a lightweight, high impact simulated teak. 

SOMETHING WONDERFUL accommodates 8 guests in 4 cabins.

The Master Suite is situated on the main deck, with a queen bed surrounded by large windows allowing you to take in the views. The Master Cabin can be closed off from the Main Salon with sliding doors, creating a Master Suite, with your own private office space. To complete the suite, there are forward-leading doors from both the office and the Master Cabin to allow access to the Master cockpit, where you can enjoy a quiet drink in the sun with hors d’oeuvres on your lounge chair.

Two guest cabins have queen-sized beds, en suite bathrooms and plenty of closet space.

The third guest cabin has two side-by-side twin beds, an en sujite bathroom and closet space.

Each of the lower deck cabins has full-view windows and an overhead hatch, both in the cabin and in the bathroom, with a blackout shutter and screen. Each cabin is equipped with its own air conditioning unit, a separate fan and a TV set with an individual Apple TV unit.

Please note – unless otherwise discussed, the crew will occupy the smaller starboard aft queen cabin. They are happy to accommodate your needs by moving to the twin cabin to make three queen cabins available.  Please be sure to let us know in advance.

YACHT TESTIMONIALS

Guests aboard Something Wonderful April.16th-23rd.16 

"We just returned from a 7 day charter in the BVI. We were a group of 8 couples and it was a first experience for all of us, so we really did not know what to except. We choose the Catamaran "Something Wonderful" ... as we boarded we discovered the first problem! The name of this beauty should have been "Something Extraordinarily Wonderful!" Then we met the Crew... Captain Paul, Chef Isabella and Third Mate Daniel. We were welcomed with such grace and refinement by each of them. They instantly made us feel at home. Each one were truly professional and passionate about their careers, but more so they became a part of the family and we learned a great deal from their expertise's. Captain Paul Johnson was a true Captain. We knew how seriously he took his responsibility and we always felt safe and in good hands. Paul plotted a journey that all 8 of us embraced as our best vacation ever. Paul would educate us about this beautiful BVI and each port was unique and special. Isabella wowed us everyday with new, fresh and exquisite cuisine. She too provided us a culinary experience we will never forget.. all the while handling this task with ease and such character. We did wonder before we boarded why we would even need a 3 crew member .. then we met Daniel. Daniel was equally as pertinent and provided the guest with impeccable service. All three crew members worked tirelessly - each sharing in the daily workings of the boat - and we could not help notice the level of discretion. Also it was an honor to see the level of respect they have for their Captain and rightly so. Paul was able to command his crew with great finesse. All three member truly made our experience one we shall always cherish and hope to do again. All of that coupled with what we all thought was to be the most fabulous catamaran. The color scheme was gorgeous, perfectly design in function , amble space and of course we felt the fly bridge was perfect! Every inch of that boat was spectacular! We have all decided after this glorious trip... that when choosing the next charter ... we felt it truly came down to The Crew! We would not want to set sail without this crew! We were blessed to have had both : A Something Wonderful Crew AND Boat! Thank you!"

And...

Dear Sirs/ Madam,We just returned from a 7 days yachting trip to BVI. There were 8 couples and it was a first experience for all of us. The only problem we noticed as we boarded "Something Wonderful" was her name should be Something Extraordinarily Wonderful! We were greeted by Captain Paul Johnson, Chef Isabella and Deck Mate Daniel. It did not take long to realize that we had struck gold! Paul charted a journey that brought a new and exciting adventure everyday. He always educated us on our surroundings and we all felt like we truly learned something. We knew we were always in capable hands and felt safe... there was never a worry! Paul treated his crew with great respect and professionalism and all 3 work tirelessly with such finesse. Isabella was an exceptional chef. Everyday was full of a new and delicious culinary delight! She too educated us and we left eager to try her creations at home! Her soft spoken and refined manner was a pleasure to be around. She has a smile that could melt your heart. We truly appreciated the level of service that was provided to us. Daniel was their Deck Hand and he was nothing short of fabulous. He took such great care of all of us and did it with great skill. We were struck by our Crew's impeccable manners, level service they so graciously provided to us and how easy they were to get along with. The crew became part of our family and added to our complete experience. The boat was a beauty! We loved the color scheme and the detail in the design. It functioned so well and we could not have been more comfortable. Her equipment was state of the art. We were impressed to say the least. We thought Something Wonderful was the perfect boat! We left in agreement that this was by far our favorite trip we have ever taken and we felt blessed beyond words! As much as we loved the boat and hope to have the pleasure of sailing it again... it came down to our crew!! The 3 of them, all with their unique personalities that blended perfect together are what made our trip Something Extraordinarily Special!

Warmest Regards

Vikki Johnson

Dear SOMETHING WONDERFUL crew,
 
What an amazing Christmas week and an honor to be your first guests!  The memories we all made this week will last a lifetime.
 
Graeme, Lauren and Zayne all went above and beyond to ensure we were fully pampered and happy every minute.  They were always ready to do anything from getting movie night set up, water sports with the kids, running us into beach bars, serving yummy drinks of the day (Z Island Rum Punch) and on and on . . . . They helped us make some extra special memories that we will cherish, while getting photos of the whole week so we can take them home. 
 
“Something Wonderful” REALLY  was just that and we can’t wait to spend our next time with these wonderful people on this absolutely perfect boat!
 
Love,
