Explore the beautiful Exumas on the luxury catamaran Bikini
Bikini is a luxury 47 foot Privilege Catamaran, originating from the Mediterranean. Privilege Catamarans are renowned throughout the world for their comfort and luxury. Bikini can accomodate up to 4 guests in 2 elegant staterooms, all with comfortable queen sized beds, fine linens and ample headspace. Each stateroom also has a private ensuite washroom. A beautiful, cherry wood finish accents the interior of Bikini, and a fully complete kitchen and pantry are ideal for preparing meals which will be served in either the spacious indoor or outdoor dining areas.
Over the past six winters John and Nancy Corcoran, the owners of Bikini, have been exploring the beautiful Bahamas Islands, from the idyllic Abacos to the friendly and welcoming Exumas. Sailing through the turquoise waters of the Bahamas on Bikini they have discovered secluded white sand beaches, authentic Bahamian villages, and the essence of island living - and they would like to share this experience with you!. Their days often commence with yoga on the beach, followed by kayaking, scuba-diving and windsurfing in the pristine waters of the Bahamas. Afternoon lobster hunting and spearfishing generally determines the evening dinner menu, accompanied by wine and dessert while admiring the unparalleled beauty of a Caribbean sunset.
Charters are based out of Georgetown, in the Exumas - one of the Bahamas most charming and beautiful islands. After flying into the Exuma International Airport, a short cab ride will take you to the Dinghy Dock, where John and Nancy will be waiting in a private dinghy to take you and your belongings to Bikini. The activities during the week to come are determined entirely by you - your vacation may be as active or relaxed as your please. You may pass your days hanging out at the local beach bar the 'Chat 'n Chill' and sunbathing at the beach, or fill them with fishing, snorkeling, kayaking and sailing! The rate for a one week charter for two people is $2,950.00 US per person. If the charter is for four people the price drops to $2,450 US per person. This includes all breakfasts, 5 lunches and 5 dinners, as well as all activities. Meals not provided may be obtained at one of the local restaurants.
If you are already in the Exumas or Georgetown area we also offer day charters starting at $200 per person. This includes a gourmet lunch, snacks and activities of your choice. Sailing destinations will be dependant upon the weather.

I had the best time vacationing with John and Nancy on Bikini. Every day was an absolute treat. They took of the best care of us and made sure everything was perfect. Even when we encountered a small bit of rain, we still had an amazing time. Nancy cooks meals like a five star chef and John is the best captain you could ask for. I feel truly lucky for my wonderful time on Bikini.
Bikini is a gorgeous yacht, with beautiful finishes and excellent accommodations. Chef Nancy prepares surprise after delicious surprise from her galley, often fresh fish or lobster that John and the guests have caught. John loves to swim, snorkel, dive and show off beautiful Exuma to guests aboard Bikini. Sailing catamaran is the best way to visit Exuma, one the world's most beautiful and secluded island chains...and John and Nancy have perfected the sailing charter.
I cannot say enough what a fabulous time we had with John and Nancy on the Bikini. They became fast friends and so much fun to be around. We felt absolutely spoiled with all the great food, activities, conversations, and adventures. Safety and cleanliness are also top notch. This was one of our best island experiences and we thank them for "making such a great memory". The beauty and variety of things to see, taste and do, on the Bikini is mind blowing. We hope to see them again!
My husband and I just returned from an 8 day charter on Bikini. We cannot put into words how great the experience was for us. John and Nancy made so many of our wishes come true by asking specifically what we wanted to do and see while on the charter and then delivering on those wishes! Nancy is the most gracious, sweet and fun host imaginable. Her meals are 5 star and she has a way of anticipating your every need and delivering before you even ask. She was such a joy to be around and inspiring with her loving/kind and gentle nature. John is very competent in his skills and we always knew we were in good hands with his navigation and his mastery of the "dinghy" rides. He knows how to find the "great spots" and provides good direction to novices with spear fishing/deep sea fishing and snorkeling. We would go back in a minute!
Retired Innkeeper on a vacation!
Having been innkeeper of my own B&B for 17 years all I can say is that my week on Bikini with Nancy and John was much more luxurious, relaxing, adventuresome than I ever imagined it could be in a relatively small space. The yacht is amazing, the hosts were attentive to all my needs, the food absolutely "spa and gourmet" quality. John managed to provide my favourite fish,grouper, certainly fresher than I have ever had it. Nancy's preparation and presentation of not only the grouper, but all meals is 5 star worthy. Captain John made me feel very safe in the azure waters of the Bahamas.
Travelling alone after many years as part of a couple, I had some concerns about feeling perhaps left out, but that did not happen. They showed me hidden gems of the Exumas which I would not ever have been able to find when in a larger group. The adventure of a lifetime, for sure!
Wow! Our week on Bikini was simply spectacular. Nancy and John were terrific hosts -- interesting, attentive, charming, and determined to do everything they could to provide the perfect vacation for three mid-60s adventurers -- a couple from Canada, along with a dear friend who flew in from London, England. We sailed, snorkeled and swam with wild dolphins, enjoyed inspiring walks on secluded beaches, kayaked through mangroves, marvelled at the sunsets and devoured freshly caught fish and lobster, surrounded always by the most beautifully calm azure waters you could ever hope to see. The lagoon at Conception Island, where dozens of green turtles put on a show just for us, was a lifetime experience. The Exumas are beautiful. Nancy is a terrific chef, and John a confident, and confidence-inspiring, captain. We felt pampered and protected throughout. Bikini offers other activities, ranging from sail-boarding to scuba diving and water-skiing. You can pretty much map out your dream vacation. We know this sounds a bit over the top, but John and Nancy truly exceeded our expectations. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
There are few places in the Bahamas as quaint and charming as Stocking Island, known throughout the world as a sailors paradise. Fill your days with any number of oceanic activities - sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, paddle boarding, swimming and water skiing. Or for a little rest and relaxation hang out at the local beach bar the Chat 'n Chill, where you can get a tropical drink and authentic Bahamian cuisine.
