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.
