About the property

Escape To Puerto Vallartas Banderas Bay, a magical place that that is one of the worlds largest bay areas. One of the finest yacht cruising grounds in the world with secluded islands, pristine beaches, and crystal clear waters. The Banderas Bay is literally teeming with marine life and migratory birds, including dolphins, flying devil rays, gray whales, sea lions, turtles, whale sharks, schools of hammerheads, and world class trophy fish.Adworld is a beautiful topline 56’ Nordhavn Motorsailer, commissioned in 2014, and is available for private charters in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. She comfortably accommodates 6 overnight guests in 3 spacious staterooms with two ensuite baths. She is fully equipped for long blue water passages with all the latest navigation and safety gear.

For shorter trips, she will easily accommodate up to 12 guests on ½ day and full day charters. She cruises comfortably between 7 and 8 knots under her engine alone, or if the Coromuel winds are favorable, throw up her sails and enjoy the afternoon breezes. A simple sailing rig ensures that even those with only basic sailing knowledge can manage her easily and safely.

About Stephen Martyn

Stephen is an Australian with a keen eye for adventure, and a passion for anything boating. From a background of holiday accommodation rental, the leap to luxury vessel charter was a natural progression in the beautiful Banderas Bay setting. Lori's mission was to find the perfect 'vehicle' to take advantage of the ocean attractions, whilst providing a five star platform for upmarket tourism. 'Adworld' is the result, and those that have taken advantage of this special package have memories for a lifetime.

Stephen Martyn purchased this yacht in 2012

Why Stephen Martyn chose La Paz

This yacht combines the romance and grace of a sailboat with the comfort and speed of a motor yacht. The sail provides stabilization for a smooth and comfortable ride, even in heavy seas. The wind assist provides an economical advantage to the Diesel engine.

What makes this yacht unique

Sailboats are romantic and efficient, but only if the winds are in agreement with your desired direction of travel. Most sailers usually spend 70% or more of their passage making under engine, as the winds, especially in Banderas Bay are not favorable. With a strong diesel engine, you can get to were you want to go, sooner, so you can enjoy the destinations longer.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of spending 5 days aboard Adworld, cruising the Sea of Cortez. There was so much to see and do, that we never got bored. Our kids completely went nuts over snorkeling with the sea lions of Espirtu Santos. We ate, swam, sailed, fished and even managed to hook a Marlin! The crew was fabulous and took really great care of us, making sure that we were well fed, and well entertained. Zeek, the Captain, spoke perfect English, and listened to our requests of what we wanted to see and do, and knew where all the best anchorages were. Lori, our hostess, is an American, and keep us well fed, and took into account our food preferences. Even my super picky eater 6 year old daughter was happy. We will be back next year!
