About the property

Luxury All-inclusive Sailing Vacations in the US Virgin Islands.

There are no better cruising grounds than the Virgin Islands, and there is no better yacht to explore these waters from than One Love! You'll enjoy swimming in clear blue protected waters, stay in numerous pristine anchorages, and have the opportunity to visit many famous island destinations. Looking for excitement and action? We can make it happen. Night life and socializing? No problem. Quiet time and relaxation? No worries, we can make that happen too. One Love, a Leopard 4600 catamaran, was designed from the beginning to be a charterer's dream boat. We have taken that great design a step further and professionally outfitted One Love with every luxury you could ask for.

About Michael Eckert

Hi,

As owner of SY One Love catamaran since July 2013, my crew and I have completed 68 successful charters in the US Virgin Islands. I would love to help you plan and reserve yours!

Michael Eckert purchased this yacht in 2013

Why Michael Eckert chose East End

We typically find it easiest for our guests if we pick them up in St. Thomas. The Cyril E. King airport (STT) is located on the Island of St. Thomas, USVI and has many inexpensive options for flights from North America.

What makes this yacht unique

Our goal is to get you from travel mode into rest and relaxation mode ASAP. We will be waiting to meet you at your prearranged pick-up location. Once aboard One Love, a refreshing welcome drink will be placed into your hand and following a short safety briefing, we’ll be on our way. What comes next is largely up to you. Your trip is totally customized to your preferences.

BVI Cruising

  • 4 of 5

We chartered One Love with Danielle and Steve over Xmas week. Our family of five had a great time and Steve and Danielle did a great job. It was an experience we would do again and frankly plan on chartering a slightly larger cat next year. While everything worked out fine, there were a couple of areas that hold me back on an excellent rating. I originally chartered based off the reviews listed here and the website onelovecat.com. Those reviews were glowing regarding Bob and Debbie and the "gourmet" style of the menu choices. I found out about 3 weeks before the trip that Bob and Debbie had left and that Steve and Danielle had been hired. I found this out not through proactive communication to reset expectations but by me noticing the names had changed and asking the question. While Danielle did an very nice job on the food, it was different than what we had originally signed up for. Michael then offered me a "half board" option to eat more meals ashore but this was not why we wanted to charter this boat in the first place. The day prior to us leaving, he emailed me to tell me he could no longer pick us up as per the agreement and for us to find our own transportation (he did reimburse us) and that he wasn't able to secure an extra Kayak that he had agreed to provide 9 months earlier (for those of you that have been to the BVI, there are dozens of places to rent kayaks). The two stand up paddleboards listed on the site ended up being one inflatable paddleboard which had a hole in it and could not be used. Steve rented another one for us a couple of days into the trip. With three teenagers, having the toys was important. What really bugged me was the wifi didn't work. I emailed him a couple of days into the trip that I needed to connect for work and I would let the family use my hotspot but asked him to reimburse me the cost. The wifi was fixed on day 4/5 and I never heard back from Michael on reimbursement. When you spend $15k for a week, expectations are important and Michael fell short of meeting ours and no effort was made to make up for those misses. While I would recommend Steve and Danielle, I would be very clear about expectation because the website does not accurately reflect the experience that you think your paying for.

Wedding Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Debbie were superb captain and crew. We organized a sailing trip for our wedding, including four catamarans and 23 guests of all ages. Bob and Debbie were our captains on One Love, which was essentially the “flagship” of the wedding armada.

They know the area very well, and we benefited on many occasions from their island wisdom. Ahead of our trip, they briefed us so we would know what to expect. They also helped us fine-tune the itinerary to meet our interests and make logistics smooth. During the charter, they handled communication with the three other boats.

Throughout the day, when we needed to make decisions about where to go next, Bob and Debbie always had a few options on hand, and were able to clearly communicate pro’s and con’s of each. I loved that, since it made decision making easy.

We got along great with Bob and Debbie, and the week flew by too quickly. Can’t wait to see them next time we are in the islands. I’d sail with Bob and Debbie again in a heartbeat, and I recommend them strongly.

Is there a Six star rating?

  • 5 of 5

From the weeks leading up to our departure and every day on the boat, Bob and Debbie made sure our every wish was looked after. Everything met and exceeded our wishes. We were blessed with amazing weather, although that couldn't be controlled, I'm sure if they could have they would. Debbie's amazing ability to make everything taste fantastic and Bobs thorough knowledge of sailing and history of the BVI was impressive and made our adventure even more interesting. This trip was so much more than words can express. One Love is lucky to have such amazing crew!

One Love Cat was as advertised and offered us a very pleasant stay!

Wonderful New Years experience!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Bob & Debbie,

Many thanks for an absolutely amazing and wonderful week at sea.

Every detail was carefully planned and executed with our safety, comfort and enjoyment in mind. The meals were absolutely spectacular. We certainly did our best to provide suitable wine pairings for dinners and occasionally succeeded, but in total, the meals were far superior to what we would have experienced in a hotel or resort for the week.

Your fund of knowledge of sailing and of available island activities was also outstanding. Overall, chartering with the two of you would have been a wonderful experience on any vessel.

Have a wonderful 2016. We hope to take another trip with you very soon!

Awesome Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time together and Eric & Kristen became part of the family! Our kids 17 - 23 yrs loved the food, exploring, snorkling, swimming, and relaxing. Eric & Kristen took us where ever we wanted and set it up so everyone could enjoy the trip in their own way. One Love itself was awesome and the A/C make for great sleeping at night after beautiful days. Thanks to Mike for putting this all in place and Eric & Kristen for taking great care of us!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The boat was very nice with plenty of room. It was perfect for my wife and two teenage boys. The crew was exceptional. I wouldn't hesitate to book it again.
