On our way to Panama!

"Impromptu" is currently on her way to Panama. We are taking a leisurly sail down island, stopping at various ports to ready the yacht for life in Panama!






Yes, you may be sailing with British nobility.  Mark and Lee's title is "Mark and Lee, Lord and Lady Maunder of Hillborough, Duke and Duchess of Beltinge".  Please do ask them about their title.


Mark is from England, and many years ago gave up being a captain of industry to become captain of a sailing yacht.  He holds a commercially endorsed skipper's license and is a PADI Scuba Instructor.  Also being an enthusiastic fisherman and a keen photographer, he has a special interest in the underwater world.


Lee is also from England and is a qualified and experienced crew.  Although she too is a PADI Instructor, she is a very experienced chef, and for the time being has given up leading divers in favor of producing fine, delicious food and a congenial ambiance for the delight of our guests.


In their 25 years together, Mark and Lee have gained wide experience in sailing, diving and the exploration of both land and sea, from European waters to the Mediterranean, and from the Great Barrier Reef and mainland of Australia to the islands of the Caribbean.


They are looking forward to chartering in the Pearl Islands.  Their greatest pleasure is sharing their love of the sea and their enjoyment of excellent food and good company with their guests.  Their aim is to make your visit to Las Perlas one of the best, if not the best, experiences ever.
