No matter how many times you’ve been to the Bahamas, you’ve never experienced it like this: Climb aboard the Ocean Club, hosted by Mimi and Doug Traina, for a week of pampering, luxury, adventure and fun!

With an aluminum hull and superstructure, Ocean Club benefits from semi-displacement to provide exceptional seakeeping and impressive speeds. Powered by twin Caterpillar engines, she easily cruises at 17 knots and reaches a maximum speed of 19 knots. An advanced stabilization system on board reduces the side-to-side roll of the yacht and promises guests exceptional comfort levels at anchor or when underway.

Built by the American shipyard Trinity Yachts, the 164-foot Ocean Club offers five spacious staterooms with interior styling by Patrick Knowles and beautifully proportioned decks for exquisite indoor and outdoor living aboard the luxury yacht. The onboard crew of 10 will provide intuitive and unparalleled service to your group.

You will indulge in delicious, gourmet meals prepared by the private, onboard chef. His inspirations will be accompanied by wines chosen by Mimi and Doug Traina.

You’ll find plenty to keep you busy and entertained. In your leisure time, retreat to the deck jacuzzi and soak up the scenery. Other impressive features include indoor and outdoor bars, Wi-Fi connectivity and complete comfort thanks to air conditioning.

Get ready to visit destinations in the Out Islands of the Bahamas, many of which are only accessible by yacht. The island of Eleuthera, located 50 miles east of Nassau, forms part of the Great Bahama Bank and is home to the Leon Levy Native Plant Reserve, a 25-acre nature preserve. Harbour Island, part of the Eleuthera chain, boasts pink sand beaches, English Colonial buildings and flower-lined streets in Dunmore Town.

You’ll visit some of the exotic destinations in the Exumas, a 130-mile stretch comprising over 365 islands, or cays. During a stop at Bitter Guana Cay, otherwise known as Iguana Island, you’ll see the endangered Bahamian Rock iguanas in their native habitat. Known for their distinctive thick-ringed tail, they are approximately two feet in length but can reach a maximum of four, with scales a distinctive iridescent pinkish hue. They can live for up to 40 years.

On Stanley Cay, you’ll visit the Thunderball Grotto Cave, made famous in the James Bond film Thunderball. The grotto provides memorable snorkeling and the chance to see exotic marine life. On the nearby Big Major Cay, also known as Pig Island, you’ll witness the famous swimming pigs that inhabit Pig Beach.

Back on board, you’ll be able to take advantage of a spectacular array of toys found onboard the Ocean Club. In addition to the waterskiing, snorkeling and sportfishing equipment, the yacht carries a 40-foot Formula 400 Sport Crossover tender, complete with head, outdoor kitchen, sleeping berth, rear-facing sunpad and extended swim platform.

You will also have the opportunity to explore the waters on one of the three-person Yamaha VX WaveRunners, capable of speeds up to 80 MPH, or splash down into the water from the three-story waterslide. More water fun can be found on the two Seabobs, the ultimate high-performance personal watercraft, or hydro surfing on Lift eFoil electric surfboards. You can bring the GO electric bikes on shore for your excursions or lounge around just off the deck on the NautiBoy inflatable floating docks. Relax into the night with a movie after sunset on the 25-foot outdoor movie screen.

With Roundtrip, Private Air, the opportunity to visit the hidden nooks and crannies of the Bahamas not normally accessible to tourists and being pampered with ultimate luxury surrounded by good company, your time on the Ocean Club will be a memorable week in paradise.

One successful bid can make it a reality!
