About Diane

We are retired professionals who love the Caribbean and sailing. We have been sailing for a number of years internationally and find the Caribbean to be a fantastic place to explore! We love to show our guests a great time by fulfilling all of their wants and desires. You can check out both the sailing vessel and our villa listing testimonials to see how satisfied our guests are!

Diane purchased this boat in 2012

Why Diane chose

We wanted to add the sailing yacht property to compliment our villa site #382304. We offer daily tours for our villa guests however, we've found they love it so much they've suggested we offer it as a weekly getaway. We thought this was a great idea as well so here we are!

What makes this boat unique

We customize. Ask your self where you want to go, what you want to do, who do you want to do it with and we'll set up your perfect Caribbean vacation!

BEST TIME IN ST. LUCIA

  • 5 of 5

We were sure to schedule a day on Ken & Diane's boat and it was the highlight of our trip! They are great hosts, knowledgeable and fun! Enjoyed cocktails and conversation, I just love what they do with their great villa & boat, it was so great to see too brilliant people living life and sharing it with us! Sailed down the west coast, snorkeled and enjoyed a fabulous lunch of lobster, conch & more! Sailing back we were able to lend a hand in catching a huge beautiful red snapper they cooked up for dinner right there at sunset....perfect heavenly day! We (including my daughter) can't wait to book again and spend more time with these awesome folks! Thank you, Thank you!!!

Ken & Diane know how to host an amazing sailing trip - Thank you

  • 5 of 5

We spent four amazing days sailing with Diane and Ken. Both Diane and Ken were wonderful hosts, they looked after every detail of the trip. The trip was relaxing and enjoyable. We sailed from St Lucia to Martinique - both islands were beautiful. The boat is ideal for multiple couples, each with their own cabin. All the meals were tremendous. What a great way spend four days seeing the islands and doing some great sailing.

Ken & Diane Make You Feel Like a Local

  • 5 of 5

Diane and Ken are excellent hosts who will make you feel at home on their lovely catamaran. Whether you are doing a daylong sail or overnight trips, they do an excellent job of tailoring the adventure level to your comfort level, from more active to more chill. If you've never chartered a boat before, this is a great introduction to sailing; and if you're experienced, you'll still be impressed.

Anyone who has done this before knows that boats can be close quarters, but you will be delighted with Diane and Ken's company and their knowledge of the area.

Everything was fantastic, including the food. We'll be back!

Fun Day on the Water!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I had the pleasure of sailing with Capt. Ken, Diane, & their villa manager, Ariel along the western coast of St. Lucia. It was a beautiful day and we were able to see most the Caribbean side of the island. As soon as we arrived onboard we were offered rum punch along with healthy snacks (all homemade and all delicious) and we continued to be wined and dined the entire day. We stopped along several picturesque locations and went swimming, paddle boarding, & snorkeling. Ken & Diane were very knowledgable about everything about the island and of course sailing, we really enjoyed their company along with the breathtaking scenery. Ken was very safety conscious and really felt like we were in good hands. My husband had the opportunity to use his sailing skills and that added to the overall experience as well. We would highly recommend “Lost Our Marbles” to anyone looking for a unique island experience & for some serious fun!

Owner's Response: Hi C&G, Thank you so much for joining us on Lost Our Marbles. It was certainly a pleasure having you both on board and especially having all the sailing assistance! Thank you as well for the paddle board lesson, I've since purchased an inflatable for the s/v. We really enjoyed your company and look forward to your return trip to sail some islands with us! I know I responded to this via email but just wanted to add it here so everyone can see how much we appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. Thank you once again! Capt Ken and Diane

Relaxing and exciting vacation

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time onboard Lost Our Marbles with Ken and Diane. They were excellent hosts from start to finish and ensured all of our needs were met. We sailed with them from Tobago, through to Trinidad and the Tobago Keys, St. Vincent and with a final stop in St. Lucia.

Our goal was primarily to kiteboard at different locations and they were knowledgeable on all the different spots to do so and got us to them! We also anchored and moored in extremely beautiful locations and they were able to suggest land activities to see, such as waterfalls and hikes. We had lots of fun fishing (caught some beauties!) while under sail, and eating island delicacies from the locals (such as conch and lobster!). Great food onboard!

Overall, the hosts were very safe, knowledgeable, and ever the entertainers! I'll surely be doing a trip with them again.
