What is a Jabuday?
We call our cruise program Jabuday which is a memorable day out on an exceptional boat with an experienced and friendly crew. In Swahili Jabu also means happiness. Guests enjoy a fun filled day on Jabu with friends, family or their team, an experience they will not forget. To make our guest experience a 'Jabuday', walking off with a smile at the end of the cruise as they disembark wanting more is our top priority. We can make magic happen, imagine being on a great boat with a friendly crew, mouth water food, incredible scenery, exploring the underwater world with thousands of multi-colored fish and coral, lazing on white sand pristine beaches, sipping on wine or a sexy cocktail with groovy tunes playing in the background, enchanting sunsets as the wind blows through your hair and enjoying all this with your loved ones or bonding with your team, it is truly magical. That`s as much as words can describe a Jabuday.
At 24m long and 6.5m wide, she has expansive polished teak wood decks and a mahogany hull. Jabu is custom built in Bodrum, Turkey and is a classic gulet. With plenty of open and covered spaces she`s ideal for groups of 8 to 60 for day charters. And with 8 double bedded cabins all with attached bathrooms she can easily sleep 16. Her average speed of 7 knots is the perfect cruising speed letting you appreciate the spectacular scenery as you sail by. Jabu is equipped with modern safety equipment, radar, GPS, depth sounder and life jackets for your safety. Music is available in the bar and salon area as well as on all decks and guests can even plug in their own IPOD. A 220 V power supply means you can charge your laptop, IPOD or camera batteries so you don`t miss that shot. Jabu has a front seating area, a middle dance & lounge deck and a shaded back dining area on all one level. Our chef prepares meals onboard and we serve it while it`s still hot, fresh and delicious. The bar is stocked with a variety of wine, spirits and beers. Enough to make you fall in love with her.
Going that extra mile
To make your experience more memorable we also offer extra services such as choices for cuisines, selection of wines and champagne, live musicians, DJs, dancers, entertainers, masseuses, yoga instructors, photographers and edited videos, theme d`cor, ambient lighting, costumes and props for our theme parties, beach parties and more.
With ample of open and covered deck space, all at one level, Jabu is also perfect for hosting mid size events for up to 60 guests without splitting up the group. A 16HP generator cranks up enough power for a mega music system and intelligent lights for a party and 220 V power supply ensures that all electronic items such as projectors, LCD screens, laptops etc. may be powered. Our chef is more than equipped to handle catering for groups and the onboard BBQ supplements cuisines offered. If required we also arrange external catering companies to offer other world class cuisines and fine dining. Hotel standard cutlery and crockery and acrylic non-breakable wine and drinks glasses are used onboard. The 8 bathrooms onboard also ensure there is no queuing up and that basic hygiene is maintained. Jabu has hosted numerous wedding, anniversary, birthday, bachelor and theme parties. Another big hit is our theme based team building activities with themes such as Pirates of the Caribbean where the entire activity is based around finding treasure or Castaway where we give you a real castaway / Robinson Crusoe experience. All themes come complete with costumes, props, d`cor, cuisine and a role playing storyline. In other words you bring the suntan lotion and we organize the rest!
