Why Charter Pegasus ?
We understand you have a wide selection of yachts to choose from and that each of them offer something very unique. The "Pegasus 9" is no exception.
This 90ft Jet Drive Power Cat is the quintessential compromise between the elegance of a motor yacht and the performance and safety of a commercial catamaran ferry. Offering her guests three decks of luxurious indoor and outdoor living space combined with its ability to deliver them to the far reaches of the Exumas in comfort, safety and at speed.
With a maximum draft of 4.1ft (1.4m), she can explore the shallows of the Bahamas like no other yacht in her class in depths as little as 5ft. our guests can often walk around the boat while she is at anchor.
Her 2 engines deliver 4000Hp of thrust via a modern Jet drive system that accellerates her to an astonishing 33 knots with ease. Ensuring limited time at sea and more time on anchor, enjoying the warm Bahamian waters.
One thing is certain. Pegasus and her crew will get you closer to all the points of interest and in shallower waters than any other Motor yacht in her class. And thats a promise !

CHEF - ELIZABETH LEE
Chef Elizabeth graduated from Kelowna University of Culinary Arts in 2001. She worked as sous Chef at a five star, fine dining, Italian Restaurant in Whistler, British Columbia’s premier ski resort. Following this she made the move into the yachting sector and quickly progressed to become a renowned chef in the industry. As a yacht chef Elizabeth won various competitions throughout the Caribbean and Mediteranian, including Concours de Chef and Chef of the Year in the prestigious St Martin, Antigua and more recently the Marmaris charter yacht show.
In 2006, Elizabeth teamed up with Warren and together they successfully operated both a 73ft catamaran and a 98ft catamaran for seven years. This experience, which introduced her to many cultural elements around the world, inspired her to raise the bar and augment her repertoire by studying multinational styles of cuisine and "haute" and "nouvelle" cuisine including sous vide and molecular gastronomy. She enthusiastically demonstrates her talents wherever and on whatever she sails.
In 2008, Elizabeth followed in her mother's footsteps and began writing her own cookbook titled “ Made With Love”. The recipe book is comprised of dozens of wonderful dishes, illustrated through an array of stunning photographs taken by Warren.
As Chef aboard Pegasus 9 , Elizabeth serves her guests a tantalizing selection of her gourmet creations, made with only the finest and freshest ingredients purchased in fresh markets and prepared according to guests’ appetites and preferences.
