I love sitting down over drinks with Justin and Caylet, crew of the charter catamaran Aldebaran. Well traveled and well read, their conversations are always interesting, and thoughtful with the bonus that I walk away egergised from their positive upbeat attitude!
Aldebaran is the name of the brightest star in the sky and this Lagoon 57 certainly shines. With a master cabin with just a bit more space than found on most cats her size plus large seperate stall shower, and two additional guests cabins, this cat is perfect for groups up to 6.
