Royal Cape 57ft - 2020

Barefeet Retreat

Yacht description

Barefeet Retreat is a new 2020 model from the South African company Royal Cape. These yachts are well known for their light and airy interiors and really great headroom throughout.

Layout is 5 queen cabins – great for families and 8 adult guests would be perfect. All the cabins have ensuite bathrooms with separate shower stalls. Gorgeous light wood is used throughout the interior and, combined with muted grey upholstery, the whole effect is one of comfort and style.

The salon and galley are integral and large patio glass doors open so this area melds easily into the cockpit. Upstairs there is a flybridge seating area, great for enjoying sunsets.

Our personal opinion

Why book Barefeet Retreat – FLEXIBILITY – Barefeet Retreat can take 10 people, but also is a larger catamaran that is competitively priced for just four guests. There is a really good selection of water toys along with a roomy outside area. This 2020 boat is so pristine and along with a great crew who go above and beyond ensuring their guests have an amazing time, completes this great package.

Onboard experience

Crew profile
Ryan was born and raised in the southernmost tip of Africa and was immediately drawn to the ocean. Having grown up catching lobster before school, then surfing each afternoon, it seemed only natural that he would pursue a sea centric career. After completing his Yacht Master Ocean certification in 2015, Ryan began sailing professionally along the East African coast. He’s got a bounty of stories to share from his extensive cruising around Mozambique, Tanzania, Mauritius & the Seychelles.

    It was an amazing vacation. Jenn and Bree were great to sail with and took us to so many islands. Loved their suggestions on islands and things to do. The food on the yacht was five star. The snorkeling and paddle boarding and exploring all the beaches where are favorite. Yacht was very clean. Cabins were comfortable. There was enough areas with shade. The food was amazing. Such a variety. The food was 5 star. I felt it was very healthy also beautiful presentation. They did have some great signature drinks. Jenn and Bree were great. Professional but also so pleasant and friendly. Very knowledgeable and had great suggestions. Would love to sail with them again.

    “Creating lifelong memories is a special treasure that so many of us take for granted until it is too late. However, the week we spent on Barefeet Retreat with Captain Jenn and Breezy Cooking will always hold a special place in our hearts and our entire group is excited to be back on the boat with them again in the future. When a trip ends with genuine hugs and tears, that sums up that not only did everyone very much enjoy themselves, but we all made a special lifelong bond that cannot be forgotten. First, Breezy Cooking’s cuisine and special beverages would rival any fine restaurant, however the hospitality from Jenn and Bree make the trip even more special. Let me tell you, these two ladies worked hard the entire trip to make everything perfect for us, but they always were enjoying themselves, had smiles on their faces and had this contagious positive view on life that continues to resonate with us. These two special ladies are making the world a better place purely from being in it and spreading their infectious positivity to everyone who is around them. The boat’s layout was perfect, the beds were comfortable, everything was immaculate and clean and with scenic background accompanied with our new found family in Jenn and Bree made for a perfect trip that we will never forget and hope to duplicate soon. “

    Bree and Jen are like the dynamic duo. Their personalities and dedication to a great charter, I imagine will be hard to find again. The food was amazing and Bree got it right every meal. Jenn was not only an awesome captain, but a great Scuba instructor as well. From the moment we stepped on the Yacht, the two of them really made us feel at home, comfortable, relaxed and in a mindset to have a great time. We only hope to bring our children back with us next time. p.s They found us front row mat position for “After Irma Band”……try that StubHub!

  • Jenni B.

    Our stay was beyond comfortable because Captain Jenn and Chef Bree exceeded all our expectations and truly brought our preferences to life! With children on board, we were amazed at the endless activities and constant attention that they provided to help us feel at home. Captain Jenn amazed us with her skill and knowledge, but also was warm and patient with our gang. And, Chef Bree is a ray of sunshine! She prepared five star meals for every seating and amazed us with daily cocktails of the day and delicious desserts! The crew duo serving Barefeet Retreat are so warm and caring that you’ll leave with 2 new family members! And, the boat was kept immaculate and stocked with water toys. We are ready to book again!

    “You have arrived, do yourself a favor and stop searching now, you will not find a better combination of craft and crew than this. Sailing aboard Barefeet Retreat with Captain Jenn & Chef Abrye is as good as it gets. We truly cannot think of a single thing that we would have changed during the entire week we spent. This newer yacht is very roomy, has all the comforts of home, and plenty of covered space for all to enjoy. Jenn & Abrye are intelligent, skilled, and kind, both with great sense’s of humor and delightful wit. What ever your taste buds desire, Chef Abrye can make it happen, every meal was fantastic and full of flavor. I think this lady is the next big thing just waiting to be discovered, so amazingly creative. Captain Jenn is a divemaster, accomplished sailor, knowledgeable hiker, and a confident leader. You just know that you are in good hands with Jenn at the helm. So finish up your To Do List, pack lightly, and get ready to worry about nothing at all, and have one of the most wonderful weeks of your life.”

    “We have no feedback on how to make the experience more positive – it was perfection!!! As first time charter yacht guests, we were blown away by the crew, food, itinerary, activities and boat! From the bubbles when we boarded the yacht to the send off cocktails when we departed, it was truly incredible! We have already put in holds on the Barefeet Retreat for a future booking!”

  • Because of Bree, our yacht became a home, which is more than any of us every thought was possible in a short week. Per Bree’s request early on in the trip, I’ve wracked my brain to find some constructive feedback related to her efforts. I’ve come up short. Bree commands respect in everything she does and never waivered even for a single moment in her total commitment to our healthy, safety, and happiness. Bree’s level of poise is second to none, and warrants repeated recognition.

    Simply amazing! Great cook, such a fun part of our group and a really kind of caring person. Bree was the best!

  • Amazing, the dishes that she created for us were unbelievable. Catered to our likes, dislikes and food allergies every meal. Also her energy brought the group up each day.

    Breezy was incredible, she kept us well fed the entire trip with amazing meals. Going into the trip I expected to have pb&j but was happily surprised by the delicious, inventive meals she came up with. I absolutely loved the risotto with Gorgonzola sauce she made and have already googled a recipe to make at home!

    The food was some of the best I’ve ever had. So amazing and great company!

  • BREEZY!! Couldn’t imagine this trip without her. Her energy and incredible restaurant quality meals continued to leave us picking our jaws off the floor. Food outstanding every time. She also saved my life!

  • Jenn was a phenomenal skipper, and was a big part of why we booked the route we did and why we requested her. She provided amazing recommendations, remained professional at all times, but was ready to have fun. If I could give her an 11, I would. 100% chance we’ll end up sailing again with Jenn as our skipper.
