EXPLORE THE US & BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS ABOARD ALTERNATE LATITUDE--ALL INCLUSIVE

Southside Yacht Rental Photos and Description

3 cabin catamaran, each with their own bathroom

Alternate Latitude is an award-winning 44 foot Voyage Catamaran and Captain Steve has been sailing for over 20 years. He has carefully outfitted Alternate Latitude with a fresh & comfortable exterior & interior, with all new navigational equipment & other electronics, cushions & linens, stereo (MP3’s – yes!) and electric heads (toilets) in all bathrooms. You will experience the security of a qualified Captain, local knowledge and flair on a comfortable & recently updated beautiful sailing vessel.

Alternate Latitude offers 3 queen staterooms, each with own bathroom. The boat comes outfitted with toys aplenty, with 2 stand-up paddle boards, snorkel equipment for the whole gang, floaties & even a tube to pull behind the 5-passenger, 40 horse-power Zodiac dingy. Travel to multiple Caribbean islands via your own personal charter & visit coves & islands that you couldn’t easily get to if you stayed in a hotel without paying for all the extra travel costs (ferries, taxis, etc.).

Wake up to a breakfast of fresh local fruit & home-made treats from Chef Deb, then either jump in the sea for a refreshing swim/snorkel or take a hike on the trails that lead you to historical spots complete with amazing views. A light & healthy lunch will await you back on the boat – after that is a perfect time for an afternoon nap in the shade or chasing turtles on one of the stand-up paddle boards. Wind up the day with a little happy hour before a sumptuous dinner under the stars or opt for the delicious local West Indian fare at places such as Foxy’s or The Bitter End.

Alternate Latitude offers 3 kinds of charters – Captain only, half-board or all-inclusive:

See VRBO Listing #475004 for Captain only pricing.

For the Captain only option, Steve & Deb will take care of sailing the boat and will arrange an itinerary with you that meet your requirements taking into account weather, feasibility etc. You will be responsible for provisioning, cooking and cleaning. It’s a way to save money on your charter and experience a relaxed, casual sailing vacation. All toys and amenities included, so you enjoy the comfort and amenities of a crewed yacht without the expense of gourmet cuisine or the limitation of dining on board. Extra costs on Captain only charters are provisions (food and drinks) for your group and the captain, fuel, ice, local permits, customs & immigration, mooring balls, fuel, water – basically anything but the boat & captain/crew.

Captain Only: per week: 1-6 pax

We provide the cleaning (dishes, galley, daily bathroom cleaning, etc.) in addition to the Captain's Famous Rum Cake $6900 + expenses

Captain Only Deluxe including expenses (customs fees, mooring fees, fuel, ice) = $7800

The half-board option includes 7 breakfasts, 4 lunches & 3 dinners - Beer & wine are included. Chef Deb will work with you to create a menu that fits your preferred palates & diets.

Half Board Rates:

Summer/Fall 2014

Half Board Rates: 2 pax $8,750, 3 pax $9,125, 4 pax $10,000, 5 pax $10,875, 6 pax $11,200

Winter/Spring 2015

2 pax $9,000, 3 pax $9,300, 4 pax $10,200, 5 pax $11,000, 6 pax $11,600.

The all-inclusive option is just that - all meals & a full bar. Don’t worry about a thing.

All-inclusive:

Summer/Fall 2014

2 pax = $9,000, 3 pax = $9,500, 4 pax = $10,500, 5 pax = $11,500, 6 pax = $11,950

Winter/Spring 2015

2 pax = $9,500, 3 pax= $10,000, 4 pax = $11,000, 5 pax= 12,500, 6 pax = $12,900

*** For both half-board & all-inclusive options, all extra costs & fees as listed in the captain only option are included.

Charters are typically for 7 nights and can start and end on any day convenient to you and the yacht’s availability.

We can pick up and drop off in the US or BVI so when looking for flights check them both.

About Steve Schlosser

Steve holds a 100 ton USCG Masters License. He has 20 years sailing experience, he spent 14 years racing in and around Galveston bay, mostly on J24s but also on J22s, J105s and J109s. He has crossed the gulf of Mexico seven times and in 2011 alone put just over 10,000 sea miles under his keel while sailing solo from Texas to the Virgin Islands as well as completing a few deliveries. Prior to buying Alternate Latitude he owned a variety of boats including everything from a Sunfish to a Tayana 37.

He has owned several successful small businesses, he spent 12 years as a financial planner, then in 2003, he and one of his best friends started a medical equipment business. Seven years later he took off on an open ended cruise, however, missing his better half Deb, he decided it was time to figure out a way to get her to join him. The charter plan was hatched. He will provide Captain only charters until she can make it down here.

Steve loves the outdoors and is looking forward to sharing his love of sailing and the water with you.

When available Deb will be joining us to help make your vacation extra special.

Deb was born & raised in Brownsville TX, and grew up on the beach with a strong love for water. At 25, she bought a one-way ticket to the USVI and found her calling in all things natural, especially food. After discovering eco-culture & a healthy, fresh diet at Maho Bay Camps, Deb worked for 15 years first with Whole Foods Market and then with the top natural products and brands in the world. She kept sneaking back to the Caribbean on vacations to sail (her other love) and crossed paths with Steve. A dream was born to encompass the love for all things natural while creating tropical adventures on the water. Deb brings 20 years of natural foods experience to the table, with a fresh & gourmet spin on a fun, festive vacation menu that you can feel good about. Organic produce, local baked goods & fresh, local fish when available.

Steve Schlosser purchased this yacht in 2011

Why Steve Schlosser chose Southside

We love sailing in the US and British Virgin islands, the Islands are close together and well protected. Having the ability to move easily from one island to the next via Alternate Latitude will enhance your vacation(no ferries, packing and unpacking).

From the boat you can do it all, whether you want to snorkel, hike, explore or just sit back and relax.

What makes this yacht unique

Alternate Latitude sails everyday for a few hours, it doesn't take long to get to the next island. Each island offers a new adventure, whether you are looking for quiet family anchorages or the party spot, the Virgin Islands have what you are looking for and we would love to show it to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Steve, Thanks so much for the Great trip. We all enjoyed it but James had a blast getting to sail with you. I can't think of anything I can recommend to make what you do any better. Having chartered with 4 other Cats in the past, I really think your talents as a sailor and Captain combined with the fact that Alternate Latitude is certainly a beautiful, comfortable and capable cruiser with a wonderful back story, will make a terrific charter for anyone either a novice or seasoned cruiser.

The destinations and routes were well thought out to accommodate my wife's desire for smooth sailing and anchorages and my Sons desire to sail. When Deb comes in to round our your crew, I'm sure things will get even better!

Thanks again for the fun and memorable vacation. We look forward to sailing with you again next Spring, as we discussed.

Regards,
Feb 2013

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
What a great time! Steve and Deb went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our time on Alternate Latitude to the fullest. They know all the fun spots, whether it's a popular Virgin Island beach bar, snorkeling a beautiful reef or a secluded beach that you want to enjoy. They can make it happen. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Awesome charter, relaxing and very nice food.

  • 5 of 5
We arranged for this charter via recommendation and it didn't disappoint. Steve and Deb were so hospitable and kind. They knew exactly when to give space and friendly interaction. The place Steve brought us to were perfect for what we wanted. Low key snorkeling, sight seeing and beautiful Necker Island. Deb cooked fantastic healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Way better food than we found on the islands we stopped at. Next time we will eat exclusively on the boat. This was a great family trip for us and we highly recommend it.

Awesome Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I & our 3 children spent a week on board the Alternate Latitude with Captain Steve and Deb in early June. Our children's ages are 18, 12 and 10 years old and this vacation had something for all of us. We loved swimming, snorkeling, and paddle boarding everyday and some our favorite places were Treasure Island (snorkeling in the caves), the Bitter End Yacht Club, the Baths, Sandy Spit, hiking on St. John, Painkillers at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke (for Mom) and, of course, all of the amazing sailing (very smooth - even for the 10 yr old who is prone to motion sickness). The snorkeling was amazing with beautiful reefs, lots of colorful fish, and sea turtles that would swim right next to you. We saw a spotted eagle ray the very first time we jumped into the water off of St. John. The boat is very clean and well maintained. The cabins were actually a little larger than we were expecting. Captain Steve and Deb are very laid back and easy to talk to. We did the captain-only charter and had the boat provisioned for us. We were pleasantly surprised at the freshness and quality of the fruits, vegetables, breads, meat, etc. The pictures of the boat are very accurate. Captain Steve and Deb really customized our adventure to our family even as our interests changed during the course of the week. We planned this trip to celebrate our oldest daughter's graduation from high school before she leaves for college in the fall and we greatly enjoyed having this week together as a family with no distractions (computers, cell phones, etc.). We could not have asked for a better vacation.

Truly amazing vacation with wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5
INCREDIBLE!! I would need a thesaurus to find words how to adequately describe the fantastic vacation (honeymoon) we had aboard the Alternate Latitude with Steve and Deb. Seven nights of pure awesomeness. You will feel at home from the instant you step aboard this beautiful catamaran. Steve is a knowledgeable and experienced captain who knows all the hot spots, the spots away from the crowds and everything in between. The food Deb prepared was out of this world. Fresh, organic, local and most of all insanely good. We gave them a list of a few islands and places we wanted to see and left the rest up to them. They crafted the perfect itinerary that got us what we wanted, went at the right pace, and showed us some great places for the future. If that wasn’t enough, they threw in a few unexpected perks that I’m willing to bet you won’t get with many other charters. But, I won’t ruin the surprise. This truly was a vacation of a lifetime.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience onboard. The boat is spotless and sails beautifully. It is comfortable and very conducive to relaxing and experiencing the joy of sailing in the Virgin Islands. I cannot imagine that one could find a boat with a better menu selection of meals using fresh, healthy food. The preparation was outstanding. Steve provided us with excellent sailing and beautiful anchorages. Steve and Deb are very accommodating and just two very nice people to spend time with. I can recommend them and the charter experience that they offer very highly. You won't be disappointed.

We arrived in St Thomas for our "sleep aboard" and were so impressed and from that moment forward it was beyond awesome. Loved the boat, loved Captain Steve and first mate Deb, the weather was beautiful! I have never had such a great vacation. As Deb put it " we want you to feel like a rock star!" Mission accomplished. My best friend for life had the itinerary mapped out and Captain Steve made it happen, along with some suggestions that were perfect. He even made his famous rum cake for my birthday-best ever! If you want to see the islands, the catamaran Alternate Latitude is the way to go. I cannot wait to do it again, and this is the boat and crew I want for my next dream vacation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
