AffinityStarting in 2010 through April Affinity is available for captained charters in the Caribbean based in St Martin. Rates are reasonable and availability can be Hourly, Daily, or Overnight. Provisioned as you wish and tailored to meet your desires, be hands on or sit back and enjoy.

The J/42 AFFINITY is a modern comfortable cruiser that can easily be handled by two people. Her 44-inch wheel, carbon fiber mast, and year 2000 sails work together to give her a very responsive feel. The J/42 is fast and responsive while her common sense sailplan and controls make her a joy to sail, even under mainsail alone. The J/42 is designed to fulfill two goals: privacy for each of two couples when cruising or ample space and convenience for one couple for an extended period of time. The popular J/42 is a refined nimble modern cruiser with classic good looks.
