Crown Bay Marina yacht description

Welcome to the sailing yacht Stargazer! We are looking forward to helping you experience the vacation of a lifetime here in the beautiful U.S. and British Virgin Islands!

From the moment you step aboard Stargazer you will feel at home. She is comfortable and airy with many surprises, including, but not limited to three spacious guest cabins with sleeping for up to six guests. Two double bed cabins and one master king cabin each feature a private en suite bathroom and separate shower stall. The main salon is open and bright with a large dining area, wet bar and entertainment center for you to enjoy your favorite music or relax and watch a movie. On the outside, Stargazer boasts a large, shaded walk-in cockpit and spacious deck. We also have a fold down swim platform at the transom to make swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, paddle boarding or any of our many other water sports more convenient and enjoyable.

So come aboard, sail away, and experience the magic of the Caribbean and the Virgin Islands in comfort and style!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: Captain Richard Darling grew up in upstate New York and fell in love with sailing on the Great Lakes where he spent as much time as possible sailing and racing on Lake Erie. He has extensive sailing, cruising, and chartering experience along the entire US East Coast down through the Caribbean. Since 2003 he has lived aboard sailboats in New England, Chesapeake Bay, Florida, and the Caribbean. Richard has logged thousands of offshore miles, having completed numerous offshore sailboat deliveries, and has worked professionally as a Marine Surveyor and Shipwright’s Apprentice. He has worked aboard several yachts including recent positions as Captain aboard a 60ft trimaran and Engineer aboard a 160ft three-masted schooner, both in the charter trade. He is the holder of a U.S. Coast Guard 150-ton Masters License, M.C.A. 200-ton Yachtmaster License, and a British Virgin Islands 100-ton Boatmaster License. Richard is an avid scuba diver and holds a PADI Divemaster certification. He loves to lead guests on underwater and shore-side excursions, to share the beauty and lore of the Caribbean, and enjoys stargazing at night – sharing his knowledge of the night sky and its awesome beauty. Chef/First Mate Melissa DiFilippo grew up in Rhode Island and spent her summers on Cape Cod where she learned to sail. She lived and worked in the Narragansett Bay area for many years, and has a deep-rooted passion for sailing and the sea. She moved from Rhode Island to the Virgin Islands to pursue a dream of working on a charter sailing yacht. While working for the Conanicut Yacht Club in Jamestown, RI for over eleven years as the Director of Member Services, she continued to develop her knowledge of the sailing community. Interning in the Club’s restaurant, Melissa gained valuable experience which complimented her intuitive cooking talents. A versatile cook, Melissa is happy to accommodate the special requests and dietary needs of her guests and has received rave reviews.

          Why the Owner Chose Crown Bay Marina:
          Mission Statement: Stargazer is crew owned. It is not our job to operate charters, it is our passion! We have a vested interest in making your vacation the safest and most enjoyable experience you could wish for. Working as a compatible team with a remarkable track record, we look forward to sharing our knowledge and love of the Virgin Islands with each and every one of our guests.

          The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:
          Stargazer is one of the most comfortable sailboats you will sail on. Her walk-thru cockpit makes access a breeze! She has ample and spacious decks, so moving about or lounging around couldn't be easier. Below decks she is bright, airy, and comfortable with full, standing head room throughout. The yacht is fully air conditioned. However, most of the time the AC is not even necessary owing to the constant breezes of the trade winds (which are responsible for making this area the best sailing waters in the world)! Crew quarters are separate from the guest accommodations, giving you full privacy.
