Formerly named CONTINENTAL DRIFTER II when owned by popular American music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, the 89'/27 m expedition yacht cruised around the SE Asian region for several years before being completely refitted (2019). Renamed DOUBLEYOU, she is now available for charter in SE Asia, cruising the beautiful region of the Philippines. The current owner stripped the yacht completely and rebuild her from scratch. Starting from the strong and durable, all-fibreglass hull, a light interior with tasteful furnishings was created. The family yacht has a beach house atmosphere and is complemented by striking art work. Besides her colourful history - cabins are named after long-term celebrity guests - DOUBLEYOU offers the perfect, stable platform for a family vacation. She is a super strong vessel with many amenities, including the latest state-of-the-art dive gear (2019) and water toys for the whole family to enjoy. The yacht has a long range (4,300 nm), and is capable to cruise beautiful, unexplored regions in the Philippines for long periods at a time. A professional photo shoot of the newly refitted DOUBLEYOU had been planned for April 2020 in the Philippines but alas! The photo/VDO shoot will be rescheduled as soon as travel and marine traffic is possible and in the meantime, enjoy the casual snapshots included here.
