The kitchen contains a dining table and is equipped with crockery, a small stove, fridge, coffee machine and a microwave. The shower, washbasin and toilet are also located on this floor. The dining table in the kitchen is convertible to a sofa bed suited for 2 persons. The 2nd floor features a privileged view over the Ria Formosa, containing a solarium with shade and sunbeds. The boat also has access stairs at the stern of the boat and a small rowing boat to go to the deserted beaches that are 50 meters from the boat.

TOP! A melhor experiência que tive este ano, superou todas as expetativas. Uma noite longe de tudo, com a vista do pôr do sol e passar a noite com o céu estrelado, foi surreal. Aconselho vivamente! Sem dúvida voltaria a repetir!


Uma noite num autêntico Paraíso. Tem tudo o que se possa imaginar de melhor. Os funcionários sempre muito simpáticos, o barco muito limpo e com um excelente aspecto e comodidade. Adorei tudo, Obrigado.
