SeaTrek Students Voyage in Style!
The Moorings 4600 catamaran is a true blue-water cruiser featuring a self-stacking mainsail with integral sail cover, roller-furling genoa, and twin 55 hp diesel engines. An electric windlass with handheld remote makes anchoring easy. The raised helm station is at the forward end of the spacious cockpit and above the cockpit’s hardtop roof, providing 360 degrees of visibility. A hardtop bimini shades the helm and cockpit. The cockpit has walk-through access to the swim platforms, a full electronics package that includes a color chart plotter and autopilot, stereo/CD player speakers, a large table, and ample of seating.
The 4600 is sleek and efficient with four cabins and four heads (bathrooms). Cabins have ample room to stow clothing and other supplies as well as lamps for reading and a double size bed. While you will be sharing a cabin with 2-4 other Trekkers, most of your time is spent above deck. We use multi-hull yachts that allow for ample sleeping area from shared cabins to waterproof hammocks you may used to sleep out under the stars. Three separate air-conditioning units keep the cabins cool and comfortable, and numerous opening ports and hatches provide superior ventilation.
Because of its design, the yacht can easily support up to 15 passengers. It is 26 feet wide and 46 feet long with a mast height of over 70 feet. There is a spacious lounge and galley with all amenities where you and the staff prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is also an outdoor shaded sitting area called the cockpit where the helm is located. Every SeaTrek yacht is easy to sail, has abundant space, and is a perfect platform for diving.
SeaTrek uses all of the 4600’s strengths to create a safe and educational atmosphere. All yachts are equipped with their own air compressors and scuba cylinders. This allows for an intensive diving schedule with the ease of a live-aboard dive vessel. SeaTrek also uses high-speed skiffs for water sports and transportation. After a quick course in the handling and safety of our smaller skiffs you may be allowed to visit friends on other boats, head to shore for some beach time, or just cruise around and enjoy the beauty of the islands.
Water sports equipment including wake boards, knee boards, stand up paddle boards, and kayaks are brand new. Even the rigid bottom inflatable boats that are the workhorses of our water sports activities are of the highest caliber. Our scientific equipment is second to none and greatly aids you in understanding the underwater environment. Instruments such as microscopes, underwater cameras, water quality monitoring equipment, field guides, and quadrats show you life on the coral reef like you have never seen it before.
SeaTrek offers you only the highest quality dive, sail, and scientific equipment for the best possible experience. All diving equipment is purchased at the beginning of each summer, and all tanks and compressors are serviced regularly to insure peak performance. If you enjoy using your dive gear during your voyage, it will be available for purchase at the end of the summer. We require that you purchase your own mask, fins, snorkel, and optional dive boots before you sail with us to ensure proper fitting and satisfaction.
