Welcome aboard "Sea Level," our beautiful 50' Durbeck ketch-rigged classic sailing yacht. With a spacious foredeck, comfortable cushioned deck chairs, premium bean bag lounges, and a shaded cockpit with a dining area, there's no better way to relax and take in the stunning views of the Virgin Islands.

But that's not all. We've also equipped the "Sea Level" with an air-conditioned bathroom, changing room, and lounge, high-quality snorkeling equipment, a huge 10' inflatable circular "oasis" float for the ultimate in water relaxation, a stand-up paddleboard, and a 15' RIB with 70hp Yamaha outboard engine to quickly transport guests to beaches and hidden snorkel destinations. And with beautiful classic styling, including her hand-laid custom teak cap rails, the "Sea Level" is sure to make your charter experience a truly unforgettable one.
