AJ's Wings from Bermuda Charters
Captained by Anthony Mello, AJ's Wings is a 45-foot Gulfstar sloop available for charter or private boat trips in Bermuda's waters. Born in Bermuda, Anthony is vastly experienced in sailing and boating. He was trained by the U.S Coast Guards for search and rescue operations.
He himself won many boat races including Marlboro 400 - Bermuda’s first International Powerboat Race in the 1970’s, and Round the Island Powerboat Race. He also worked with the crew of the movie The Deep that was filmed in Bermuda. The yacht AJ's Wings has a center cockpit with a bimini shade allowing very easy access all around the top deck without any obstacles.
If it rains, the cockpit can be completely covered. The boat has a swim ladder that enables easy access to the water for swimming and snorkeling. The boat is also powered by a 50hp Perkins Diesel Engine that comes into play when sales are down. At the lower deck, there are air-conditioned sleeping provisions for six persons.
There are two staterooms and a salon there. The lower deck is equipped with TV, DVD, Stereo, dining table, galley with propane stove, oven, 12 volt fridge, microwave, water heater and a pantry. A BBQ Grill is also provided.
