About the Property
Yacht, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)
Lower Deck: The yacht has a spacious Master Suite aft with Queen bed and head with shower. The next suite forward is a Guest Stateroom with two twin beds and head with shower across the companionway. Four steps up from the sleeping deck is the lower saloon with full bar and ice maker, large dining table and sofa that opens into a double bed. Forward of the lower saloon is the fully equipped galley where the Chef creates outstanding Mexican dishes for your enjoyment. The Crew's Quarters with separate head and shower are located forward of the galley.
Main Deck: Four steps up from the lower saloon is the Main Deck with inside steering station and upper saloon also with a large dining and game table and chairs. The saloon also includes a sofa that converts into a double bed, overstuffed chairs, and a deck overlooking the lower aft utility deck. A large swim platform with a swim ladder makes for easy access to the yacht from the water. A spacious deck area on the bow of the Main Deck provides ample room for watching the pristine scenery. A large padded bench seat across the Main Deck and additional padded seating on the life jacket lockers provides very comfortable seating for our passengers to enjoy their cruise. A large sunbathing deck with lounging pads is located above and behind the bench seat on the roof of the lower saloon.
Bridge: The Bridge Deck offers panoramic viewing of the scenery and a bimini cover over the Bridge Steering Station.
Charter Area Options: The primary charter area are the islands near the home port of La Paz, BCS, Mexico. However, we can charter as far south as Cabo San Lucas and as far north as the Loreto / Puerto Escondido area during multi-day live-aboard charters. All the islands are pristine, are generally uninhabited and offer wonderful scenery, hiking, and photo opportunities.
Available Activities: Relax and experience the good life (at a VERY reasonable price) while our Mexican crew attends to your every need while also ensuring the safety of the yacht and everyone aboard. Try your luck at fishing off the stern of EL DON in a world-class fishing region. Our expert Mexican Chef will prepare your freshly caught fish for dinner. Swim in the crystal clear water, walk or sunbathe on the secluded beaches, sunbathe on deck, and generally relax and enjoy yourself on our classic luxury yacht. EL DON has two tandem kayaks for guests to explore the shoreline of the islands or the Baja peninsula. Rendezvous scuba diving with dive shops in La Paz can be arranges and guided free-dive spear fishing lessons are available at an additional cost.
Marine Mammals: Whale watching is very popular from mid-January through March. Porpoise frequently swim under and along-side the yacht as they play in the pressure wave off the bow. Sea Lions can be seen on their favorite rock outcroppings. The area is extremely rich in a wide variety of marine life that can be seen while snorkeling or scuba diving.
Visit La Paz: Visit the modern Mexican city of La Paz to shop for gifts and enjoy a delicious meal. Rental cars are available to explore the back roads of Baja, or drive down the peninsula to Cabo San Lucas.
