Chronos




Sail in luxury on this 54m Bermudan Ketch, Chronos as she glides around the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and the sunny Mediterranean

View sailing schedule

Built and registered in Bodrum, Turkey but spending her days sailing the Mediterranean and Caribbean, Chronos was purpose built as a charter vessel in 2013, as a two-masted, 54m staysail ketch.

This beautiful Ketch was designed by Klaus Röder who based his design on a classic yacht whilst keeping up with the modern day ketch; built for performance sailing and guest comfort.

Built with luxury in mind, the outline on deck is of teak and mahogany with plenty of space to sun-bath, read a book and enjoy the views. All the sails are electronically retractable, so no need to learn the ropes here. (The crew are, however, more than happy for guests to get involved with the operating and sailing of Chronos as much as they would like!)

An admiralty ladder provides the perfect place to jump off into the warm Caribbean waters, have a swim and climb back aboard with ease. Chronos also offers her guests the options of using her water skiing, wake-board, tube riding, kneeboard, banana boat, kayak and snorkelling & dive equipment and even a sail dinghy (QubaRS)

The deckhouse offers its very own small bar whilst below decks offers still more space to relax with a saloon with a plasma TV! Her private cabins, offering both double and single beds, all have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.

The professional crew consists of the Skipper, first mate, mechanic, bosun, cook and 4 stewards, so you will most certainly be looked after during your time aboard Chronos.
