VIDEO: Crew Life on M/Y DESPERADO En Route to the Miami Boat Show

Andy Levine glimpses first-hand what it is like to work full time on the Westport motor yacht DESPERADO (ex ‘My Colors’) on her passage through the Caribbean, in preparation for her sale at the Miami Yacht Show.

Captured, is an insight into crew life on the 40m/129ft luxury yacht DESPERADO as they travel 1150 miles, at an average speed of 12 knots, from The Virgin Islands to Florida in order to reach the Miami marina with ample time spare for extensive preparations.

The video shows the tireless efforts of the 8 full-time crew and staff in order to keep the yacht running for 24 hours a day for 4 days. With regular shift rotations that equal long days and little time for sleep, the video highlights how constant and tiring the work of crew can be. In addition, stewardess Pauline reveals the reality of crew quarters on a multimillion dollar yacht.

Captain Ennalls Berl does not hold back when discussing the total cost of chartering DESPERADO for a week and the approximate cost of maintaining her impeccable condition if you were to own her. 

It also shows the natural wonders and undeniable benefits of crewing, and chartering, in the Caribbean waters with previews of the azure waters, immaculate blue skies and bottlenose dolphins which race to reach the vessel.

As they reach Florida, crew work extremely hard to scrub decks, meticulously clean DESPERADO from head to toe and lay-tables and set cushions to ensure she exudes the ten million dollar price tag she is being marketed at.

Working 52 days a week, the crew ensure that all guest suites, the Jacuzzi and other exclusive amenities are immaculately kept to provide a spotless yacht whether all 10 guests are on-board or not.

M/Y DESPERADO is available for charter in Mexico until the end of October, for more information on chartering her please contact your preferred charter broker.
