Property description

Alternate Latitude is an award-winning 44 foot Voyage Catamaran and Captain Chuck has been sailing for over 20 years. Alternate Latitude has been carefully outfitted with a fresh & comfortable exterior & interior, with 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 & 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 and 13' inflatable 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 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. The afternoon is a perfect time for a 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 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 premium captain-only charters as well as half-board & all-inclusive charters:

For the Captain only option, your captain 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, although the captain can make a few dinners for you. 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 & gratuities – basically anything but the boat & captain/crew.

Captain Only: per week: 1-6 pax
We provide the cleaning (dishes, galley, daily bathroom cleaning, etc.)
$7000 + expenses

Captain Only Deluxe including expenses (customs fees, mooring fees, fuel, ice) = $8000, with the same clean-up service from your captain.

Half-Board Charters, 7 nights - includes 7 breakfasts, 4 lunches & 3 dinners, snacks, soft beverages, wine & beer
2 pax $9,000 3 pax $9,300 4 pax $10,200

All-Inclusive Charters, 7 nights - All meals & beverages including the ship's full bar
2 pax $9,500 3 pax $10,000 4 pax $11,000 5 pax $12,500 6 pax $12,900

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: Doug's first experience navigating the Caribbean began in his early twenties on race boats. After several seasons of racing its pristine waters he came to the conclusion that he desired a more permanent (and serene) existence in the Virgin Islands. These decisions lead him to retire from the racing circuit and pursue captaining term charters. Doug's friendly nature and vibrant sense of humor are trumped only by his wealth of knowledge pertaining to all things Caribbean. He loves sharing all the popular and exciting hot stops that the VI has to offer almost as much as he loves to whisk his guests away to the more secluded anchorages that showcase the untouched exotic beauty of the islands. Carolyn's passion for food, wine and entertaining coupled with her appetite for knowledge built a strong foundation for her career in the hospitality industry. Having worked in restaurants for over twelve years, Carolyn has had the opportunity to fine-tune her understanding of wine and spirits and how they relate to a myriad of different cuisines. She now focuses all of her boundless energy and brilliant creativity on the culinary masterpieces she creates for her guests. Her talent in the galley is underscored by her effortless ability to entertain. Other than food and travel, her hobbies include photography, hiking, reading, skiing, and practicing Pilates.

Why the Owner Chose East End, St Thomas, USVI:
Other than his great passion, sailing, Doug also enjoys cooking, surfing, snowboarding and boat restoration. He is exceptionally energetic and generally loves any out door activity. Doug looks forward to showing his guests all the adventure and excitement the Caribbean has to offer. You will find him to be an excellent captain who offers a very unique experience not soon to be forgotten. And Carolyn's sparkling personality, love of adventure, and innate ability to make her guests feel welcome guarantee that your trip to the Caribbean will be one to remember!
