High End Cruising

We are looking at leasing a 65' Trimaran. Where are the best areas to go to insure the BEST provisions? We are looking at a two month period and want to be in Bahamas / Caribbean. Top concerns are accessibility to items like (but not necessarily): caviar, truffles, good Scotch, vintage wines, foie gras, Kobe beef, King Crab, fresh and exotic fruits etc.

Also, where are the best nude friendly beaches as we have a more naturist approach to our traveling.

Hello and welcome.

I await with great interest responses from the group. Sailing by boat is defined as the most expensive form of third class travel. I would be happy to fly it into anyport you are at.

Nude beaching is not allowed in the Bahamas. We are looking to simply change things up a bit for a change of pace. Varety is the spice of life!

So your top concerns are high end provisions and nude beaches, perhaps the french riviera is more your speed than the Bahamas.

Thought about replying, engaged my brain before opening my mouth. This is a first.

Carry on.

No, we want to stay Tropical and have done St. Tropez / Cannes / Monte Carlo / Portofino too many times. We are looking for a change and not St. Barth's either. I think we will be very well stocked. I am just trying to troubleshoot now as two months can go by fast along with the provisions!

This thread is closed as I have had to delete too many posts violating our be nice rule.

Might I remind people we do have an ignore feature.

A ruby port your harbor, Raise three sheets to the wind.
