Book your vacation with an award-winning yacht! Emysa took home First Place for Best in Show Yachts 51 to 60' at the 2023 VIPCA Show! The Leopard 58 was designed with an entrance into the larger yacht cruising market in mind and was born from many innovations when she debuted in 2011. She was expertly crafted by the world-renowned Robertson and Caine and stays true to the Leopard Catamarans sleek and innovative style, being the recipient of several accolades. The Leopard 58 was designed from the ground up, taking 40 years of customer feedback into consideration. She was designed to be an open water yacht that places comfort and a ‘wow factor’ at the top of the list, and most importantly, set the stage for high end charter vacations. This distinct catamaran includes an obvious standout, a large flybridge with lounge and seating area that accommodates up to 12. The flybridge provides an impeccable stage from which to take in your surroundings and is the perfect space for cocktails, lounging or meals. She also includes a large aft outdoor seating space that accommodates an additional dining space for 12. This versatile area provides an immense amount of flexible space and is also steps away from the hydraulic dinghy and swim platform. The salon accommodates indoor dining within the comforts of the fully air-conditioned yacht, or in the evening, watch movies on the large flat-screen TV in the lounge area. The galley is well prepared for all culinary needs, with a full wrap around configuration that provides generous counter space, a large double sink, oven, fridge, and abundant cabinet space. The spacious and well-appointed cabins provide ample room for guests, all with separate showers and heads. The Leopard 58 accommodates groups with family get-a-ways in mind or couples who want a more refined space. The interior, just as aesthetically pleasing as the exterior, is complete with high end finishes, wood trim and large windows letting in an abundance of natural light. She provides the perfect space from within which to relax, unwind and intake a Caribbean vacation at sea. The Leopard’s innovative design is further complimented by the superior outfit of EMYSA. No detail has been left unnoticed from the fine linens, pillows and throws to the wine glasses, serving and flatware that make every day feel luxurious. She has been stocked full with every appliance and kitchen accessory to allow the chef to fully showcase the mastery of their art. And the water toys abound, allowing guests to fully experience all the Caribbean has to offer, both in and out of the water.

Growing up in South Africa, Bastian was always surrounded by nature. He would find creative ways to indulge in it: climbing trees, hiking mountains, surfing or scuba diving - anything that would bring him closer to the elements. After years of going back to the sea, it was only natural for him to continue on this path and become a skipper.
Qualifying for his license on the South African waters, his training in a challenging ocean prepared him for whatever may come. On his first voyage, he crossed the Atlantic Ocean. This was preceded by more voyages, in which he quickly advanced positions and was then working as a Captain.
Chartering yachts for potential buyers in Cape Town, Bastian found a way to bring his two loves together: sailing the ocean, and bringing people closer to nature. Even on land, people turn to him to take them out exploring and camping. Chartering proved to be a beautiful extension to that.
Bastian is truly passionate about the sea, nature and the connection we have to it; and he always seems to know the perfect equation for a divine sunset. For him, providing a good and memorable experience on the sea is a duty just as much as it is a pleasure.

Sarai Ben Ari
Sarai was raised in Italy, Germany and Israel - always on the coast. Being a daughter to a skipper, her family had a close relationship with yachts. They regularly went sailing in the Mediterranean, exploring all of the different coastlines the Med has to offer, and that was where she fell in love with the sea. Discovering this at a young age she took on competitive windsurfing and started scuba diving, along with photography as a way to indulge in the present and the beauty of nature.
Living in the Middle East and Italy gave her an appreciation for the Mediterranean and Italian cuisines. At home, the dining table has always been a place where everyone gathers and time seems to stop. Seeing food as an art that has the power to connect people, she ventured into hospitality during and after high school, working in different catering companies.
At the age of 19 she enrolled in the IDF and served for 4 years as a Commanding Officer. During her service, she found profound meaning in human companionship and the relationships we build with each other. This understanding grew stronger through her travels in Africa, getting to know a variety of cultures and being inspired by her experiences there.
Sarai is passionate about the beauty in the simplicity of life. She believes food has the potential to elevate any experience to new heights. By combining fresh ingredients, and accentuating natural flavors, her cooking is designed to bring those at the table closer together.
