Can you imagine staying on a catamaran in Bora Bora and having the autonomy to explore the beaches of the archipelago in a private boat?
If you've been dreaming of escaping to a tropical island, why not add to your fantasy a floating village that can cruise unhurriedly on turquoise waters?
Bora Bora-based ELYT Charter Tahiti is working on a new addition to its fleet that will be “unique” within French Polynesia. It is a solar-powered, eco-friendly catamaran “inspired by Polynesian canoes” and the islands’ aquatic lifestyle.
“The 'house boat' will be situated on the Bora Bora lagoon,” ELYT Charter Tahiti told Lonely Planet. “Its main purpose is to remain parked at an anchorage and rented out as a villa, but it will eventually be able to cruise Bora Bora’s inner lagoon with a dedicated captain.”
Everything aboard the 120 square meter floating bungalow, from the hot water propulsion to the equipment, will be powered by solar panels. The absence of a diesel engine also means that the catamaran will be low-impact, smoke-free and odorless, making the stay on board much more pleasant.
The catamaran can host up to eight guests, split between its four rooms in a variety of arrangements – three couples, for example, or two couples with children. Other facilities include two fully equipped bathrooms, living room with media station and kitchen. Naturally, the catamaran also features a deck, which will offer a 360° view of the lagoon and comes with a bar and barbecue, to make this waterside experience as relaxing and luxurious as possible.
The catamaran is in its final phase of construction and is expected to be ready to welcome guests aboard in the first quarter of 2021, starting at €1500 per night. If you want more information, you can find it on the official website of ELYT Charter Tahiti here.
