OMBRE BLU³ offers luxurious holidays for discerning guests and passionate sailors. A truly classical boating interior was the inspiration for this custom made Sunreef 70 sailing catamaran. Love for detail is a hallmark of the yacht’s design. Decorative elements made of brass such as old lamps, bar stools, door handles and railings coming from original passenger ships of the 17th, 18th and 19th century underline its distinctive character. Moody weather cannot dampen the on-deck experience as both flybridge and main deck provide protection from sun, wind and rain showers from all sides. The latter without stealing the view. Those who still feel the need to escape inside may enjoy expansive sea views from the bright and spacious saloon. Various sunbeds on the flybridge, main and front deck invite full relaxation. The yacht can accommodate up to 8 guests as follows: 6 adults and 2 children 15 years old maximum in 3 double and 1 twin bed cabin. The configuration of three couples works perfectly, as each cabin has its very own special touch. The master cabin is located on the starboard side aft and features a double bed, desk/beauty table, armchair, a huge cupboard space and bathroom with double sink , separate shower and toilet. The guest cabin on the starboard side is appropriate for couples and stands out, having the largest bathroom with huge open rain shower on teak flooring. Another bonus for families (or couples) are the two adjoining cabins on the port forward side, where the bathroom is accessible via the main double cabin. The connected twin bed cabin solution entails a sofa and beauty table (which operates as a suite when the area is used for one couple) and a single fold-up bed (which forms a bunk-bed), which is perfect to accommodate children or young adults in a family share situation. OMBRE BLU³ carries a professional crew of 3, who are dedicated to creating the vacation experience of your dreams. OMBRE BLU³ is a Registered PADI Dive Centre. Explore the underwater world for the first time, take your entry level certification, upgrade your dive ticket, take a specialty course or just dive with us for fun!

July 2020 - Amalfi Coast - UK Guests
"Dear Melissa, Francesco and Marlowe, We had an unforgettable journey on your beautiful boat. You have thought about every detail, from the elegant fabrics and timeless decor to lounging and seating for every occasion a sea and ashore. The food is delicious, perhaps too yummy, as we are all bursting out of our clothes. We loved exploring the coastline, swimming in the magical inviting waters, catching jellyfish, sailing, tasting new wines and local delicacies. You have given us a truly unique family holiday. Whether relaxing or active, we have loved our time aboard OMBRE BLU ³. From our hearts we thank you. Until our next excursion!"
August 2020 – Aeolian Islands, Sicily – Swedish Guests (second trip on OMBRE BLU ³)
Dear Melissa & Francesco, Thank you for yet another absolutely unforgettable week in the mesmerizingly beautiful archipelago of the Eolian Islands. However, I must fault you. For one thing my waste line. Francesco’s cooking (and Mel’s Muffins! Darn those Muffins!) which we thought could not possibly get better. Was just simply divine. We would rather eat your cooking than in a 5-Star Restaurant ashore. But these trips are truly made special by you two. We are grateful to have been introduced to you and this lovely way of exploring beautiful places. You are very special, incredible even. The service, hospitality and atmosphere are honestly fantastic. Can’t wait for new adventures with you next year. xoxo D++++ Ps. Covid felt like a distant place with you all. On this amazing boat. We felt so safe and you were all so conscientious. Meanwhile, the pandemic rages in other places OMBRE BLU ³ was truly the sanctuary we all savely needed. D.C
September 2020 - Aeolian Islands, Sicily - Italian Guests

More compliments, we forgot to say that the boat is so well looked after and maintained! GR

Med Term pricing is cost (cost of the boat) + VAT (country tax) + APA (operating and provisioning expenses). The cost is the weekly rate for the charter. The VAT and APA are calculated on the cost of the boat and paid in addition to that base price. The APA covers: fuel, water, food, licenses, alcohol, and any specific items you would like provided to you. APA money that is not used for provisioning would be reimbursed to you- or, if you spend over the amount, they would charge you. The Captain keeps track of expenses and would let you know if you’re reaching your APA limit. This is the industry standard for the region.

Caribbean Terms or Caribbean Inclusions refer to all-inclusive rates. These boats are typically catamarans and monohulls and are found in the Caribbean.

Most (but not all) motor-yachts and sailing vessels in the Med are Med Rate terms.

The yachts featured on our website will specifically state which type of pricing they offer.

July 2020 - Amalfi Coast - UK Guests
"Dear Melissa, Francesco and Marlowe, We had an unforgettable journey on your beautiful boat. You have thought about every detail, from the elegant fabrics and timeless decor to lounging and seating for every occasion a sea and ashore. The food is delicious, perhaps too yummy, as we are all bursting out of our clothes. We loved exploring the coastline, swimming in the magical inviting waters, catching jellyfish, sailing, tasting new wines and local delicacies. You have given us a truly unique family holiday. Whether relaxing or active, we have loved our time aboard OMBRE BLU ³. From our hearts we thank you. Until our next excursion!"
August 2020 – Aeolian Islands, Sicily – Swedish Guests (second trip on OMBRE BLU ³)
Dear Melissa & Francesco, Thank you for yet another absolutely unforgettable week in the mesmerizingly beautiful archipelago of the Eolian Islands. However, I must fault you. For one thing my waste line. Francesco’s cooking (and Mel’s Muffins! Darn those Muffins!) which we thought could not possibly get better. Was just simply divine. We would rather eat your cooking than in a 5-Star Restaurant ashore. But these trips are truly made special by you two. We are grateful to have been introduced to you and this lovely way of exploring beautiful places. You are very special, incredible even. The service, hospitality and atmosphere are honestly fantastic. Can’t wait for new adventures with you next year. xoxo D++++ Ps. Covid felt like a distant place with you all. On this amazing boat. We felt so safe and you were all so conscientious. Meanwhile, the pandemic rages in other places OMBRE BLU ³ was truly the sanctuary we all savely needed. D.C

Med Term pricing is cost (cost of the boat) + VAT (country tax) + APA (operating and provisioning expenses). The cost is the weekly rate for the charter. The VAT and APA are calculated on the cost of the boat and paid in addition to that base price. The APA covers: fuel, water, food, licenses, alcohol, and any specific items you would like provided to you. APA money that is not used for provisioning would be reimbursed to you- or, if you spend over the amount, they would charge you. The Captain keeps track of expenses and would let you know if you’re reaching your APA limit. This is the industry standard for the region.

Caribbean Terms or Caribbean Inclusions refer to all-inclusive rates. These boats are typically catamarans and monohulls and are found in the Caribbean.

Most (but not all) motor-yachts and sailing vessels in the Med are Med Rate terms.

The yachts featured on our website will specifically state which type of pricing they offer.
