Property description

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 2 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:

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

Half Board 1-6 Pax
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:
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.
Winter/Spring 2015
2 pax = $9,500, 3 pax= $10,000, 4 pax = $11,000, 5 pax = $12,000, 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.

Last minute charters? You bet. If our calendar is open, and you are ready to vacation within the next 2 weeks, ask about our last minute booking special!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Ralph and Stacie love the sea, the sailing life, and making new friends. They have been cruising the East Coast USA, Florida Keys, and Caribbean full time for the past 3 years. Combining their cruising experiences, sailing the BVI, along with Ralph’s Chesapeake Bay Charter Captain experience, they are excited to share their unique perspective of the islands with their guests. Ralph grew up on the water, spending countless summers on his own boat from a very early age, solidifying his love of sailing. Joining the Navy, he developed a variety of skills helping him excel in the corporate workplace. After many years of working in electronics and electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, and even owning his own IT consulting company, Ralph left the corporate life to pursue his true passion as a Sailing Captain. Ralph holds a USCG Master’s License and has been licensed for more than 10 years. Ralph has also taught various boating and sailing classes through the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. Ralph’s interests outside of sailing include Tech gadgets, celestial navigation, and learning to play the guitar . Stacie grew up near Annapolis Maryland, participating in a variety of summer sailing programs. Stacie had a successful career as a Project Manager for a Non-Profit organization before helping Ralph deliver a Racing Sailboat from Bermuda back to Annapolis. Staice’s interest in sailing was reignited, and as it turns out has a knack for open ocean sailing. Aside from Sailing, Stacie loves all things pop-culture, movies, and TV related. However, Stacie’s intenterest are centered around helping others. She served on the board of directors for the Annapolis Jaycees, and as a volunteer for various theater groups in Key West. Together, Stacie and Ralph were very active in Annapolis Racing, as well as participating in a few Regattas in and around Annapolis as well as Biscayne Bay Florida. As a team Stacie and Ralph work very well together and make for a pleasant easy going

Why the Owner Chose Home Port: St. Thomas:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:
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.
