We are pleased to welcome a fine gentleman’s yacht to the Nicholson fleet . . .

- S & S Designed Swan 80 -

Admirers of traditional yachts will recognize

 MELINKA’s classic Sparkman & Stephens lines at first glance.  Below decks, her handsome interior is warmed with rich leather upholstery and fine marine paintings from the owner’s private collection.  Three en suite guest cabins aft of the spacious salon comprise a large master with twin lower singles, desk and library shelves, plus two cabins with upper/lower singles.  All heads have separate stall showers.  The galley and crew quarters are forward of the salon to give guests maximum privacy. 

Melinka’s elegant style conceals an agile, high performance sailing yacht with good sea berths for offshore passages.  The cushioned sundeck aft of the helm has space for everyone to relax after an exhilarating sail or an afternoon of water sports.  Captain Forrest Shropshire heads Melinka’s crew of three.  Despite his quintessentially English name, Forrest is originally from Georgia.  He has more than thirty year’s experience cruising the waters of the Caribbean and the U.S. East Coast and holds a 1600 ton USCG License.  Mate Jace Hector is a second generation professional sailor from Antigua who loves sharing his local knowledge of the Islands.  His sunny disposition, ready laugh and singing brighten every day.  Candidates for chef are currently being interviewed.

Captain Shropshire and his crew look forward to welcoming you aboard at the Antigua show in December. They will be docked at Falmouth Harbor Marina.

RATES:  $18,500 – inclusive x fine wines, taxes, dockage & communications
