Property description

Opus is a 50 foot custom built trimaran which provides stability and comfort. The itinerary will take you to many islands, stopping at many different coves and beaches along the way. There are so many amazing things to do and islands to see! Your crew, Billy and Pat are down to earth, laid back and easy going and want you to relax and enjoy your vacation!

Many people come to the US Virgin Islands to get married and honeymoon. Billy is a non-denominational wedding officiant and provides wedding services on Opus or a beach of your choice.

Opus is based in St. Thomas for convenient access and availability for pick-up in either St. Thomas or Tortola, BVI. She is your perfect floating villa for as little or as long as you would like to stay with us.

Opus has three staterooms with separate entrances. Two double bed cabins and one v-berth queen bed cabin each feature a private en suite head/shower. The main salon is comfortable for relaxing, watching movies, reading and dining. The covered cockpit provides a welcome escape from the sun.

On deck, we provide all scuba dive/snorkel gear, fishing gear and chairs to relax in. The fighting chair on the aft deck is great for fishing or a favorite place to gather at sunset. There is a swim platform, ladder and fresh water shower provided. Whether you prefer to dine in the shaded cockpit, sunbathe on the trampolines, dance on the foredeck, or simply count the stars, Opus's large open deck provides unmatched flexibility.

There are many dive sites anywhere within the Sir Francis Drake Channel from Norman Island through Peter Island, Dead Chest, Salt, Cooper and Ginger Islands all the way up to Mountain Point on Virgin Gorda, including the Dog Islands, Guana, the Camanoe Islands, Marina Cay and Trellis Bay. Weather conditions and experience level of divers determines what islands we go to.

We offer a wide range of opportunities to begin and continue your dive education. From basic classes like Discover Scuba all the way to Professional Level courses like Dive Master and Assistant Instructor. Billy's level of experience will enhance your skills, safety and even your career!
Billy is a PADI Master Instructor who has been scuba diving for over 30 years. His knowledge, love of diving and patience insures that your dive experiences are safe and unforgettable!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Billy has been scuba diving and working on boats in St. Thomas for 30 years. Opus is our home and we love living on the water and being outdoors. Island life is awesome and so are the people who live here. It's all about meeting new people, sharing our home and making your vacation a lifelong memory. Welcome! We hope you love this experience as much as we do! Billy holds a USCG 100 ton Masters, 1st issue 1986. With Auxiliary Sail, Over 20,000 miles on the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. U.S. sailing school certified. PADI Master Instructor, DAN 02 Instructor, CPR/First Aide Instructor, N2 certified, Certified Bauer technician, with basic electrical, mechanical, and fiberglass experience. Billy was a professional musician having played at numerous resorts and on Cruise Ships through out the Caribbean.

Why the Owner Chose St. Thomas, USVI:
Trimarans provide more stability and comfort than mono hulled boats. Eight people can sit comfortably on the large open deck. Scuba diving off the aft deck is spacious and effortless. The Virgin Islands are truly the perfect cruising ground, close together and well protected.

The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:
Our main business is chartering throughout the US and British Virgin Islands, but we also offer Opus as a Bed & Breakfast when we are available April through November. Opus is your perfect floating villa for as little or as long as you would like to stay with us. NOTE: Please check our rates and terms and conditions on our website (opusvirginislands). Also visit our Facebook page. People can get all their dive training by a seasoned PADI Master Instructor with over 30 years of experience. (A PADI Master Instructor is one step below a PADI Course Director - an instructor's instructor.) Experienced divers are allowed to explore on their own in buddy teams. Logs books and C cards required. Spear fishing, lobster diving, deep, night, drift and wreck diving are also available for the seasoned veteran. Note: Spear fishing and lobster diving is not legal in the British Virgin Islands. Feel free to help as much or as little as you would like, whether helping us adjust the sails or take the helm! We want you to feel a part of this exciting experience! We are your guide to diving, snorkeling, swimming and beachcombing. The possibilities are limitless!
