After running a small business in North Carolina for 14 years, we decided to do what we love. We love sailing. And, we enjoy entertaining and helping people discover these amazing islands and the people who live here. We wish to share the 'beautiful life' with your family and friends and to help create a lifetime of memories.
Married for almost 30 years, we have four amazing children and 3 grand babies (and counting). We both hold US Coast Guard licenses and are both experienced chefs. We are open water dive certified and CPR/AED/First Aid certified. We hope you love this experience as much as we do! Welcome.
Derek Hunsinger purchased this boat in 2008
The Leopard 46 is truly the perfect charter boat. It is easily big enough for six guests, with high ceilings and an open floor plan. It has modern bathrooms and everything you will need for the perfect vacation. The Virgin Islands are truly the perfect cruising ground. The islands are close together and well protected. Seasickness is never an issue and the sails each day are short and easy. There are over 100 different islands that can be explored and the snorkeling and beaches are some of the best in the world.
Prices shown are based on captain only trips, which includes the boat, boat toys, and Brenda and I to keep you safe. It does not include fuel or food and beverages. If you would prefer, we can take care of everything for you, including the shopping and cooking and bartending.
Just back from a week aboard Bella Vita and can't say enough about how Captain Derek goes way beyond his job description! Whether you wanted to dive, sit back on the beach, bar hop or just relax on the boat Derek was willing to assist you any way possible. His boat, Bella Vita, is gorgeous and roomy and we never felt crowded with 3 couples. There's nothing like waking up each morning to look out the bedroom window and see ANOTHER spectacular beach calling your name. This should be on everyone's bucket list!
We traveled with close friends and celebrated a couple of anniversaries. The trip was everything we imagined and more. Traveling to many islands allowed us to enjoy so many more things than staying at a resort could have. Great captain and amazing food. The Bella Vita is a beautiful boat and provided a lot more space than I expected. Watching the Superbowl while anchored in the Caribbean was a special treat. We truly enjoyed this adventure.
