Instructor fee's are additional and vary on course selected.
OUR STELLAR CREW:
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 crew teams working in the Virgin islands today. Fun, friendly, energetic with a can-do attitude 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).
Along side Austin is our "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 favorites 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.
Thanks to its well-designed layout, spacious accommodations, modern features this yacht is an easy choice for those looking for some of the creature comforts of home. 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.
We have 3 equal sized queen cabins with private en-suite heads and showers. The yacht is fully air-conditioned (although rarely needed) and has an onboard water maker reducing the need for excessive plastic water bottles.

Your charter yacht will explore beautiful islands routes through the US, British and Spanish Virgin Islands. We can also arrange charters down island in St. Martin/ St.Marteen, St. Barth, Antigua, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
We are happy to pick you up on any Island location to begin or end your charter. Every charter route is uniquely designed with input of the guests so that we are sure to bring each group to their idea of 'the very best place to visit'.
Here is an overview of some of the activities that await
Always wanted to learn how, but never had the chance? Now’s the time! Feel free to help as much or a little as you’d like when we sail around the islands. Whether you help us adjust the sails or take the helm you’re in for a truly exciting experience!
If the BVI slogan “Nature’s Little Secrets” doesn’t give it away, then you must see it for yourself. The BVI boasts some of the most astoundingly beautiful beaches you will ever see. White Bay, Savannah Bay and Sandy Spit, to name a few, are guaranteed to take your breath away.
Take an afternoon swim at Dead Man’s Bay on Peter Island, or get lost on Anegada’s endless beach while watching the sunset. All along the journey you’ll truly feel that you are in paradise.
What’s your poison? Waterskiing or wakeboarding? Knee boarding or “noodling”? Snorkeling or kayaking? We’ve got it all! No need to bring your equipment as we have everything you need to spend your time in the water the way you like!
Interested in SCUBA diving?
The same island geography that makes the BVI a perfect sailing destination, also creates excellent SCUBA diving. The British Virgin Islands are full of quiet harbors protected by wind swept points. These points often extend below the water’s surface in the form of fantastic coral reefs teeming with wildlife.
Want to take a break from the boat? The islands offer a number of great hikes. Take the morning to walk up Norman Island, and discover an old pirates’ lookout. Or find the abandoned house on Peter Island complete with artistic tile mosaics, most of which are still intact.
The Gorda Peak National Park boasts the highest point on Virgin Gorda. Once you reach 1359 feet, climb the wooden observation tower and take in the stunnig view the British Virgin Islands.
Finally stroll along Anegada’s endless of beach. Afterward, reward yourself with a cocktail at Cow Wreck Beach Bar, and when you’re ready to return to the boat, simply call for a taxi.
If your idea of relaxing includes a hot-stone massage or a pedicure, indulge in treatment. Peter Island Resort boasts a world-class spa. The islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda offer spa options as well. Let us know, and we’ll help you book your treatment of choice.
While evenings on the water tend to be quiet and relaxing, the islands offer nightlife ranging from tranquil to absolutely crazy.
Looking for a place to shake your booty? The Willy T at Norman Island or Foxy’s on Jost van Dyke can offer you the music and ambiance to do just that.
Here during the full moon? Trellis Bay and Bomba Shack in Apple Bay offer Full Moon parties complete with food, drinks and live entertainment. The former offers a family-friendly atmosphere, while the latter, (the original) is a party where anything can happen.
There are a number of options throughout the islands to take in some live music. Quito's, Myett's and the Rock on Virgin Gorda to name a few.
While you won’t find a shopping mall Mecca in the islands, you will find little gems along the way to satisfy your inner shopaholic. Most islands have at least one to two shops where you can find souvenir t-shirts, local art and handicrafts.
Of course, when you’re ready to relax, you can lounge with a book on the bow trampolines, float on a noodle with a tropical drink, or doze in a hammock on one of the many white sand beaches. Since our yacht is your own personal floating resort, you choose what makes your ideal BVI yacht charter.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: 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 gypsy dreams of living in the islands. Alan has been living the sailing/chartering/pirate life for 10 years and 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
Why the Owner Chose Nanny Cay Marina:
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' Limin
The Unique Benefits at this Boat:
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!!!
