The boat was beautiful and the sail was really nice. We only had 6 guests and it was perfectly comfortable. 12 people would be tight and people would definitely need to lay in the front of the boat not have a seat. The skipper was very nice but didn't point out where we were or what we were seeing. We were able to anchor and swim/eat for about an hour which was nice. BIG NOTE: there was no wine tasting on this boat. That was false advertising. They did provide snacks and beer though.
