UNBELIEVABLE Vacation at UNBEATABLE Prices:Best prices for BVI/USVI Charters
Welcome to Paradise!!!
Thank you for your interest in chartering our catamaran for your upcoming holiday. We know planning a vacation online through these sites can be a bit overwhelming and a little nerve wracking...who are these people...what if the pictures aren't right...argghh so many responses...
I understand completely as we use VRBO when planning our off season travel. For the most part we have been hugely successful in finding great places far and wide from Costa Rico to Whistler BC!!
First, we would like to assure you we are the owners of this Catamaran (and another catamaran also listed on VRBO) When you contact us with an inquiry, be it by phone or email, you will be speaking with us directly.
Please feel free to call us directly at 340-514-1544 with any charter inquiries. Its always nice to hear from you and quick phone call will help us get and idea of what type of charter will work best for you. Also, do not hesitate to call with any initial questions you may have about chartering in general, our yacht(s), or other yachts we can suggest that may be needed for larger groups or for travel during dates we are already booked.
If this is your first time chartering you probably have a million questions... again, give us a call or email and ask for a copy of our “ Charter Vacation Planning Guide' to help you get started. Its a free, no strings attached little handout I wrote that provides a wealth of information in a fun, unassuming manner.
Please take some time to read about our yacht description, browse the pictures, amenities pages, owner details, links to our ebrouchure and web pages and info about the wonderful islands that await you.
We look forward to hearing from you and wish you well in your search for the perfect charter boat for your vacation.
Happy Canadian Charter Boat Couple

OUR STELLAR CREW:
Our 45 foot Robertson & Caine Leopard Catamaran has great charter history and for very good reason!! As anyone can tell you, the yacht crew is the corner stone of a great charter vacation and we are proud to have one of the most popular teams working in the Virgin islands today. Fun, friendly and energetic easily describe our crew, however their combined EXPERINECE is what really makes them shine.
From family trips to romantic getaways and everything in between (bachelorette parties, anniversaries, retirements, boys week ect) - they have hosted them all and know instinctively which hat to wear to meet your groups expectations for a great holiday.
Captain Austin is excited to share his knowledge and love of these amazing Islands with you. Besides being a skilled USCG who maintains proper seamanship and safety for your group at all times, he is also a great dive & snorkel leader, wake board instructor and dingy driver (think water ski's, wake board, tubing fun). Austin is also quickly gaining a solid fan base for his icy blender creations - from tropical morning smoothies to the happiest of happy hour drinks, he is sure to have a recipe up his sleeve to make everyone smile.
Along side Austin is our super fun sized 1st Mate/Chef/Dive Instructor Philippa. This little Irish lass will keep you well fed and entertained all week long. Her culinary creations range from elegant gourmet dinners such as seared duck breast with chipotle raspberry demi glaze to family friendly feasts like BBQ ribs with all the fixins. When not whipping up a storm in the galley Pillipa is the yachts dive instructor. Her extensive Padi dive credentials will get those new to diving into the water with discover scuba course, open water certifications or advance course offerings for those more experienced divers.
Working together to meet your every need, Austin and Philippa will do everything possible to make sure you leave us raving that this was the very best vacation of your life!!
Now onto the yacht itself-
this yacht has some serious WOW factor going on. Thanks to its well designed layout, spacious accommodations, modern features and thoughtful amenities this yacht is an easy choice even the most discerning guests.
When you first step inside this yacht you will think it is brand new!! The yacht is spotless and shines inside and out with care and pride of ownership. It has been professionally (re)decorated in trendy, but not overpowering, Caribbean colors. Our easy care materials and bright, beautiful décor are both functional and comfortable. You will settle in quickly and feel right at home in no time.
Guests have plenty of room to move about freely and find their own spaces on the boat, or come together to enjoy each other’s company and never feel crowded.
The well-appointed galley location (up) makes cooking and entertaining a breeze. If you choose a captain only option and decide to prepare meals yourself, you will find our galley is well appointed with all the mixing, stirring, flipping, cutting cooking, baking gizmos and appliances you would find at home.
We have 3 equal sized queen cabins, all with great headroom, private en-suite heads and showers, a hanging closet for clothes and plenty of shelves for storage of clothes, books, electronics. Finally, the queen size beds are really queen size and really, really comfortable. Really. I'm not lying.
Our yacht is fully air-conditioned (although rarely needed) and has an onboard water maker reducing the need for excessive plastic water bottles.
For guests’ digital enjoyment/ entertainment needs we have wifi even while at sea, satellite radio, an I-pod dock/hock up, portable Bluetooth wireless speakers, a hard drive with of over 2000 first rate movies. For those looking for some good, old fashioned pastimes, we also have plenty of paper books, playing cards and board games.
The outdoor cockpit, dining area, front deck and trampolines of this yacht model really make it one of the best layout for a charter yacht catamaran. The back transom and swim scoops make getting into and out of the warm Caribbean water easy for guests of all ages and abilities.
There are enough snorkels and fins for everybody and our rates include scuba diving for certified divers. A Kayak and stand up paddle board is available for you to view the reefs and water creatures from above or explore a quiet mangrove up close and personal. Others may prefer to simply enjoy the many loungers, floats and noodles in the warm, crystal clear waters.
Our powerful tender (dinghy) seats 8 people comfortably for trips to shore and is great for active guests who are interested in trying out our water ski's and wake boards.

About Randeen Cayer- Owner Operator
We are both originally from Canada and have relocated to the Virgin Islands, partly to escape the cold winters at home, and partly to follow our of living in the islands. Alan has been living the sailing/chartering/pirate life dream for 10 years. I have been here for 4 years - and I have to say it has been the best move of my life!!
Alan's first charter boat, which we still own and operate together was purchased in 2005. In the spring of 2013 friends decided to sell their beautiful yacht Free Ingwe and we jumped at the opportunity to own her and expand our charter business.
More boats naturally means, more work so over this past year we have hired on a great fun loving professional crew ... whether you sail with them or us largely depends on the time of year you are looking to charter.
Alan is the fulltime Captain on Catalyst Dec - May and I join him as chef/mate for All Inclusive charters as
In 2011 I started a small yacht services business on St. Thomas. I began by offering provisioning for yacht crews & captain only guests. This allowed me to make many great connections with a variety of yachts working here in the VI. I would often ended up suggesting these yachts to our charter inquires when we were booked. This was a natural lead in for me becoming a licenced charter broker.
Although I stay busy (no idle hand here) all of this experience does give me an edge when helping guests plan their vacation. I own & work on a charter boat and know all the in's and outs of these islands. I know the area, all the boats working here and their crews. I know the best dive sights, snorkel spots, places/prices for provisioning, ways to get here/go there /ferry around, to eat casual, high end or off the beaten path. I know where to stay when not on the boat, get flowers, hire a clown, renew your vows...
I have helped with it all. I am here on island and I have first hand knowledge, experience and access to what ever and where ever your imagination takes you !!
Randeen Cayer- Owner Operator purchased this boat in 2005
Why Randeen Cayer- Owner Operator chose Tortola
The Virgin Islands are known as some of the best sailing grounds of the world. The calm waters of the Virgin Islands make sailing easy for everyone, and the vast number of islands, variety of anchorages and both water based and land based activities mean that there is always something new to see and do.
Or, simple do nothing at all, lay back, relax and enjoy the amazing scenery, wonderful weather and cool drinks while living on 'island time'
What makes this boat unique
Unforgettable beaches will take your breath away on a daily basis. Your Captain knows all the best spots to anchor depending on the mood you are in....you can choose the quiet and romantic Peter Island or visit one of the many active beach bars, wonderful restaurants and hopping night life found at the world famous Willy T on Norman Island or the Soggy Dollar and Foxy's Night Club on Jost Van Dyke.
Even better, your 7 day sailing adventure can include both, all, none or more making this vacation more than you have ever imagined.
Whether you are looking for a fully crewed, all inclusive vacation with gourmet meals and drinks provided, or a Captain Only vacation that allows you take over in the galley or dine shore, we guarantee our luxury catamaran will be the perfect choice for you.
Let your dreams set sail!!!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have had such a fun, memorable time seeing the islands, learning some history, snorkeling, eating, eating, eating (Yummy!) and so many other great memories. The kids will remember this vacation forever – in fact, the highest compliment is to be a destination to return to since we always do a different vacation every year!! Danny told us yesterday that we could come back next year because technically we see different islands every day!! That is the highest compliment especially from a 14 year old boy who is hard to impress!! You have rocked his world.
We have so many wonderful memories from our trip with you both. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and love of the region.
Matt, the dives/snorkeling was AWESOME! Thanks also for the “off road” tour of the Baths. Next time I will do the jump! I think Kelly’s “ski” down the wall will be tough to beat! ?
