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

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: Chuck Welsh joins the Alternate Latitude team as captain for the fall 2016/2017 season. A native of the Flora-Bama Gulf Coast, and life long mariner, Chuck first arrived on St Thomas for a port call in 1991, while serving aboard the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga. Chuck was the Small Boats and Lifeboat Rescue Officer aboard "Sara" for four years, serving in the Gulf War and numerous deployments in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, and yes, he did "Drive the Saratoga". After his tour of service with the Navy was complete, Chuck returned to the Virgin Islands in the late 1990's and has been a regular charter captain in the area ever since.

Why the Owner Chose East End, St Thomas, USVI:
In addition to the Virgin Islands, Chuck has captained charters in the Bahamas and the Florida Keys, and also delivered sailing yachts as far as Ecuador, through the Panama Canal. He says that a trip through the Canal on a small yacht should be on everyone's "bucket list". Chuck holds a 100 Ton U.S. Coast Guard Master's Credential and is certified STCW 95. While always aware of the splendors of the Virgin Islands and all of the amazing things they provide for the enjoyment of his guests, your safety always is his first priority, and he takes that to heart

The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:
One of Chuck's unique efforts is that he strives to be informed of all events taking place in the USVI and BVI at any given time, always informing guests of any special local happening that may be taking place on a particular island, in the event they should wish to attend.
