Our boat is an Agapi 950 Twin and goes by the name of Pandora.
The idea to run boat charters of a different kind was born when we first discovered the concept of Agapi. It has all the advantages of a rib boat without actually being a rib boat. Because of its construction, the Agapi is much safer and easier to maneuver, even in difficult conditions. It has a large capacity and can take up to 10 passengers. And with 600 hp it can still reach top speed with a full load.
What we think is the best thing about this boat is that our guests get a luxurious boat experience, are more involved in the route and how the boat is maneuvered. Usually we want to run with the boat as open as possible but when the weather is not with us (which also happens on the west coast) we can sit well protected with large windows.
Other amenities we have on board are, heater, toilet, refrigerator and sound system. The boat has a spacious cabin where we can stow bags and other things you have with you.
Safety is very important to us and it’s our priority to make you feel secure on board with us. All our staff are fully qualified to drive passenger boats, and our Agapi boat is registered with the Swedish shipping registry. We have all the legally required lifesaving equipment on board, plus a little extra. We want you to feel 100% at ease when you are travelling with us. All our staff are medically trained in first-aid and lifesaving, should there be any need for medical attention during the tour.
We recommend bringing a warm jacket with you. Life vests are provided, and are worn at all times while on board. There’s comfortable seating in the form of a U-shaped sofa so you can chat with your fellow passengers, or if you’d prefer to be alongside the skipper and talk about life on and in the sea, you are very welcome to do that too.
Agapi is the Greek word for ‘love’ and was the name given by the founders of the company when they were building their very first models. Agapi is a Swedish company based in Stockholm, and we are proud to say that the 950 Twin is the flagship of the company’s fleet. In keeping with the Greek sentiment, we thought carefully about a suitable name and finally fell for “Pandora” - the first woman, according to Greek mythology. If we needed another good reason, Pandora is also a Swedish pop singer from the 90s who we enjoy listening to while we live life on the waves.
