Home Port: St. Thomas yacht 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 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: 2 pax $8,750, 3 pax $9,125, 4 pax $10,000, 5 pax $10,875, 6 pax $11,200.

The all-inclusive option is just that - all meals & a full bar. Don’t worry about a thing.
All-inclusive: 2 pax = $9,000, 3 pax = $9,500, 4 pax = $10,500, 5 pax = $11,500, 6 pax = $11,950

*** 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!

We are able to perform your wedding & vow renewals! Ask us about our wedding/honeymoon & anniversary packages.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: 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.

          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.
