                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About the owner: Captain Phil is the owner of Storm Petrel. He has been chartering in the Caribbean and Cape cod since 1992. He is a USCG licensed captain, speaks German, some French and Spanish. He has lived in Guadeloupe, Switzerland, and wherever Storm Petrel takes him. The co-owner and co-captain of Storm Petrel is Laura, an RN for over 25 years. She loves cooking, sailing, and fishing, and has been Phil's charter partner for the past 9 years.

                  Why the Owner Chose Home Port: Cape Cod, Falmouth:
                  Phil is a native Bostonian, and knows these waters well. From Falmouth, the sail can take you across Buzzards Bay to the Elizabeth Islands, Cuttyhunk, or longer sails can go to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. In the winter, St Thomas is easily accessible by commercial flights. Red Hook is at the east end of the island, and an ideal starting point for your charter vacation. The US Virgin Islands of St John and St Croix are an easy trip, and the beautiful British Virgin Islands are not more than a few hours sailing away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Boat:
                  The ultimate way to traverse the Islands is by boat, drifting from one island to the next, sleeping under a million stars. Chartering Storm Petrel allows you to create your own schedule, with no ferries to catch, and no rush to check out of a hotel in the morning.  She can take you to places only accessible by boat, and you always have a waterfront room! Storm Petrel is a safe and comfortable sailboat. She makes her yearly trips to the US Virgin Islands for the winter, to Cape Cod for the summer, for chartering in both locations.
