All guest cabins have en suite bathrooms, separate shower and push button toilets. All, too, have queen-size beds which, unusually, are at floor level and can be easily accessed from either side.
Silk bed covers and cushions; thick-pile fitted carpets; leather and fine wood veneers create a luxurious ambiance that is further enhanced by finest quality monogrammed bath robes and towels.

As the yacht is sailed entirely from the fly bridge the spacious cockpit is exclusively reserved for the entertainment and comfort of guests. Its facilities include an outdoor dining table comfortably seating 10; two large sunbathing mattresses; large areas of cushioned seating and the main bar which serves both the cockpit and the salon. Large and stable steps lead to swimming platforms at the rear of each hull and between the hulls, the dingy dock allows easy and safe access to Akasha's large and comfortable tender.
Akasha's Summer Crew
Captain Oswaldo Cruz & Chef Briar Smith +2 Crew
Oswaldo (41) and Briar (39) look forward to welcoming you aboard luxury catamaran AKASHA. You will find them to be professional in their roles, friendly in their manner and entertaining with their diverse cultural backgrounds and rich life experience.
Oswaldo (Mexican) fell in love with the water during his time in the Mexican Navy. After his service he spent ten years owning and developing a specialist dive centre in which he took Mexico’s elite on dive tours around the world. For several years he worked on different shores including Canada, Egypt and the Mediterranean. Oswaldo completed his RYA Yacht-master training in the challenging waters around the UK, and in 2009 after moving to the British Virgin Islands he met Briar. They have been working side-by-side ever since.
Originating from New Zealand, Briar left to travel the world in her early 20's, visiting a variety of countries. This led her to discover a passion for food & cooking. She trained as a travel agent and worked in the UK for several years, a computer programmer in the USA for 2 years, and as an avid volunteer worker she has spent time in Israel and the Galapagos.
In between various jobs & travels Briar developed her culinary skills which she has complimented with a number of training courses at Ashburton Culinary School, UK, as well as advanced training at Gastronomicom (France) a 1 Michelin star International training Academy. This training, her love for food of all cultures and her past experience in the galley has her effortlessly delivering a variety of cuisines with amazingly full flavors. All dishes are presented with attention to detail and elegance.
Combine Oswald’s rich knowledge of the Islands with his witty sense of humor, and Briar’s enthusiasm for food and people and you’ll find an excellent Captain & Chef. From ensuring you are served your favorite dessert to tailoring the itinerary to meet all your preferences Oswaldo and Briar know that it is the small details that count in ensuring you have the most wonderful vacation.
