Louisa and Liz are here to help give you the inside track.

Necker Belle is a 32-metre (105ft) luxury catamaran with an unbelievable 14-metre beam; that means she's 14 metres or over 40ft wide! After an extensive makeover in Australia, this majestic catamaran is now available for private charter in the Caribbean. Necker Belle is one of the largest all-carbon multi-hull yachts of its kind and can reach speeds of over 20 knots.

With spacious common areas and four beautifully appointed main cabins, all with en-suites, Necker Belle is perfectly designed for fun and relaxation. So with the cool Caribbean as your playground, this world-class superyacht with its crew of seven and fabulous service is a perfect choice for fun and relaxation on the high seas. Additionally for the 'James Bond' touch, guests can choose to also hire Necker Nymph (a 3-person aero submarine that can dive down to 30 metres) for the duration of their charter, which sits on Necker Belle.

Days aboard the Necker Belle luxury catamaran can be spent enjoying the clear waters of the Caribbean, whether cutting up the sea on a pair of water-skis, trying a hand at the high-adrenaline sport of game fishing or marvelling at the vibrant marine life with scuba tanks strapped to your back. Sun lovers can relax suspended over the turquoise waters, catching some rays on the forward beam trampoline.

Unlike many yachts, guests on Necker Belle catamaran can choose a tailor-made itinerary and with a maximum sailing distance of 40 miles between each destination, the Caribbean is the perfect place to island hop. Guests can explore the British Virgin Islands - home to Branson's very own Necker Island, or visit the sights of the Bahamas, Antigua or perhaps even Barbados. Once guests decide on their itinerary they just have to sit back, relax and count down the days until their cruise in paradise. Meanwhile, we will be busy tailor making a perfect diving or snorkelling itinerary.
