Make every charter an event on DEVOCEAN, be it the Cannes Film Festival or just a Family Vacation!

Recently, Tom and Cordy from the Boatbookings team had the pleasure of visiting DEVOCEAN, a majestic 37m Sunseeker!


We were given a most friendly and warm welcome on board by Captain Ivan whose enthusiasm was great to see on a wet Tuesday morning in the South of France (it doesn’t rain that often!). After discussing Ivan’s illustrious career in yachting in the spacious, tasteful and homely main saloon over one of the best Espressos we’d ever had, it was time to take a look round DEVOCEAN’s interior spaces.

Splendid Bar!

The master cabin is situated forward of the main saloon. Classically appointed with oak panelling and including a comfortable private seating area, this master is truly a home away from home for any discerning charter guest. The full beam bathroom with his and her sinks and whirlpool bath tub ensures total comfort. Below decks are four further guest cabins, each beautifully finished with predictable Sunseeker attention to detail and style. The twin cabin is laid out for 3 guests with a pullman bunk bed berth. This cabin can be converted into a double making DEVOCEAN flexible, perfect for families or friends.

Luxurious Master Cabin!

As amazing as the interior is, it is only half of the story! Step outside and be amazed by the amount of deck space at your disposal. Choose from any one of the 3 decks and you won’t be disappointed! Enjoy casual aft-deck dining for lunch or breakfast before heading up to the top sun deck to spend the morning relaxing and sunbathing or wallowing in the jacuzzi. At lunch time, head downstairs to the large dining table and enjoy a fantastic freshly and expertly prepared lunch, or stay on the sun-deck for an informal barbecue before settling down for another indulgent afternoon on the water. For active and younger charter guests, there is a great selection of water toys; jet skis, sea bobs, fishing and diving equipment are sure to keep everyone entertained.

Spacious Top Deck aboard DEVOCEAN!

DEVOCEAN has also recently become available for event charters and would be perfect for hosting large groups of up to 50 people at dock. Based in Juan Les Pins, she is perfect for MIPIM, CANNES LIONS and the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL. Her exceptional crew and huge deck spaces make her perfect for hosting larger groups. DEVOCEAN would certainly make any corporate or private charterer stand out on the glamorous French Riviera.
