It matters little whether you’ve spent the previous hours making the most of a Force 4 or lazing in a sheltered anchorage. At the end of the day, what you want most of all are the creature comforts of the yacht’s stateroom, guest cabins and the understated style of the rich teak wood and ivory leather saloon. It’s the perfect setting from which to enjoy Magrathea’s state-of-the-art entertainment system. From the DVD library, flat screen television in the saloon and two double cabins, PS3 and Wii, individual Ipod and MP3 docking stations, to the more traditional relaxations of chess, board and children’s games.

Everything is to hand, even links to the outside world via broadband satellite connections for telephone, e-mail and internet, with WiFi for in harbour use and an internal WiFi and cable network for laptops. Naturally, air conditioning is installed to keep you cool on even the most tropical of evenings, while the wine refrigerator and icemaker ensure that serious sailors can keep their drink of choice at just the right temperature. And not all the toys are on the inside. The 4.5 metre rib with 60hp outboard is a popular daytime diversion, along with the water skis (twin and mono), wakeboard, ringos, snorkels and fins.
