WELCOME TO FREEDOM!

Join Us For A Week Sailing The US & British Virgin Islands On Our Giant Trimaran Sailing Yacht!

We are not a travel agency or a huge charter company. I will be your hostess and we have just one sailboat... BUT IT'S A BIG

ONE with over 2,000 sq ft of air conditioned living space and it has every amenity you could want for fun, excitement and exploration. This is NOT 'Camping', as you will for sure NOT be 'roughing it'.

We are NOT a huge 'Cattle Call' boat so you won't get lost in a crowd with 50 other vacationers/divers. Instead you will have the entire boat all to you and your group of up to 12 guests, so YOU get to decide the itinerary and activities. This is custom 'boutique vacationing' at its best!

We have 5 queen cabins with sleeping for 10, plus we can accommodate a couple more guests on hide-a-beds.

We have 2 dive compressors on board to keep all your dive tanks filled and if you bring a non-certified diving friend, they will enjoy our snuba/hookah dive system allowing non-certified divers to enjoy diving too. And yes we even have all dive gear available if you need it and underwater video cameras too!

Explore our website to see what we offer, because we are NOT just for SCUBA Divers and Kite-Surfers! We are so much more and have got lots of fun activities for everyone of every age to enjoy. Kayaking, SUP Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, Water Skiing, Wake Boarding, Hydro-Sliding, Tubing and Lilipad Floating, and don't forget our Snuba diving system! Check out our website to see a video that shows it all!

SAVE! With our Captain & Crew Only! We even offer a 'Captain & Crew Bare-Boat' where you charter the entire boat all for you and your group for only $9,500 for up to 10 people. That's ONLY $950 per person, that's less than $135 per night! Then you buy your own provisions & pay your own expenses & perform your own cooking & domestic duties, and we'll provide the boat & crew to take you to the best beaches, tiki bars, wreck dives & snorkel reefs!

Or if you prefer ask about our All Inclusive Vacations that include all food and all alcohol for your entire group! We take care of EVERYTHING! We prepare all your meals, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, appetizers and deserts. And we have an open bar for you to mix your own drinks or allow our robotic bartender to mix it for you, anytime you'd like, all week long! And if you prefer frozen drinks, then just ask, because those are our specialty!

Or, ask for our "Best of The Best of The BVI" visiting all the #1 Best Places!

Visit our website, watch our video tour of our yacht, and see the more than 100 video testimonials from families, couples, groups of friends, SCUBA Divers, Kite-Boarders, Wind-Surfers & vacationers of all ages, shapes & sizes that have vacationed with us. Hear what they have to say, they can't all be wrong! We know what we're doing and we do it VERY well! And now we're ready to do it for you & give you the vacation trip of your life!

You MIGHT Find Cheaper, But You'll NEVER Find Better! We compete on service and value. AND we're rated #1 "Best Value For Your Money".

Then call or email us with the dates you'd like your trip and we'll put it together.

Never has a boat been so flexible!

We Do What You Want, How You Want It! When You Want It!

At 63’ in length with a 33’ beam (width), there is almost 2,000 sq ft of air conditioned living comfort, and another 2,000 sq ft of fresh air deck space with a combination of shaded & sunshine areas, giving something for everyone!

ACCOMMODATIONS

Freedom is a custom designed 3-hull trimaran, with a very spacious, well-appointed, inviting & comfortable salon & galley in the center hull. Here you'll find huge, comfy lounging sofas, dining table, lots of books, games and our digital music collection of over 10,000 titles, a flat big screen HDTV to enjoy our collection of more than 2,500 digital videos on demand. Or turn on our own Freedom Channel to see our underwater video cameras showing everything that’s going on under the water below the yacht, turning the big screen TV into your own living aquarium!

In each “ama” or (outside-hull or pontoon), you’ll find two comfortable queen cabins with a large full bathroom, “head” complete with toilet, shower and sink, plus an additional over-sized vanity sink separate from the bathroom, both of which are all shared by the two cabins in that ama. The head & vanity sink area & cabins are all separated by teak wooden doors dividing each chamber. And the two cabins in that ama utilize the Pullman style design made popular on trains where privacy curtains identical to those used for sleeping compartments on trains provide additional privacy in each cabin. The amas each have their own stairway access-doors from the cockpit deck.

The Captain Morgan master suite has its own private en suite bathroom and offers total privacy in magnificent space & comfort. And the Captain Kidd Suite is where the 4 crew lives that will be catering to you. The salon also has a convertible couch and a convertible dinette that both convert into a double and a queen size bed to accommodate even more guests if you have a large party!

The interior is beautiful teak throughout combining a mixture of old world charm with all the latest in modern day comforts, conveniences and technologies.

On deck offers a fabulous cockpit that’s the center of the social circle with enough seating for everyone to enjoy meals all seated together at the same table, or if you’re traveling with young kids, we can even seat them at the social coffee table nearby. You will find that the cockpit is where everyone congregates for socializing. There are also two fabulous huge trampolines at the fore-deck suspended over the water for lounging, a 2-person hammock at the mid-deck, as well as multiple levels for sunbathing, and a slightly elevated, peaceful shaded area with soft comfortable reclining “easy-chairs” in the “sky lounge” at the aft-deck providing the perfect place for reading a book or snoozing. At thousands of square feet of total entertainment & living area above & below deck, it’s even larger than many homes.

The whole boat is unbelievably spacious with plenty of room for everyone to find their own personal space. With lots of room for separation or togetherness, whatever you choose there’s room for snoozing and private time and several varieties of areas for socializing, dancing, partying, lounging, cocktailing & dining. Freedom really & truly does have it all!

About Leigh Ann

What makes us and our sailing yacht completely different from all other charter boats, and what makes us so special, is the diversity and background of our entire crew. With each of us bringing a skill set that when combined is truly unparalleled and unequal to any crew, on any boat, anywhere.

You've read about the Captain and Crew, but now meet your hostess...

And those vacationing with kids will enjoy Leigh Ann’s “Freedom Kids” activities — filling their time with supervised fun so that Mom & Dad can have a little “Freedom” too… Freedom to dive, Freedom to explore, or Freedom to just relax in the sun knowing their kids are well cared for nearby. It’s almost like having your own “nanny” or “Au Pair” so you can experience and enjoy “TRUE Freedom” on your Dream Vacation of a lifetime.

Leigh Ann purchased this yacht in 2012

Why Leigh Ann chose South Side

Steve Jobs from Apple Computers said, 'The ONLY way to do REALLY great work, is to love what you do.' That's why we're the #1 rated charter boat for hosting vacations... because we absolutely LOVE what we do!

Nothing gives us greater pleasure than touring families and groups of friends around the tropical Caribbean Virgin Islands that we love so much, we've made them our home!

There are over 500 bare boat charter boats here and over 100 private charter boats so you've got a big choice to choose from... What makes us different is this...

1: Your Meals: All boats have good food, but if you've watched any of the more than 80 video testimonials on our website from some of our vacationing guests, then one thing they all rave about is our food. Maybe it's because your chef, (my wife), Barbie, is the 3-time champion of the Alabama BBQ Ribs Cook-Off competition. Or maybe it's because our Caribbean grilled Lion Fish is a delicacy that you can't get in any restaurant anywhere, and you can't get it on any charter boat in the Caribbean except for FREEDOM. It's caught fresh right here in the Caribbean and grilled to perfection. Or maybe it's some of my award-winning breakfasts that I prepare for you including my Eggs Benedict or custard filled French toast with homemade rum syrup or egg souffle' that helped our bed and breakfast in Fort Lauderdale earn us BnB's highest ratings... We're also the only charter boat with a double pizza oven! So when it comes to enjoying fantastic meals, we've got you covered.

2: Your itinerary: We provide a custom itinerary designed specifically for you, based on the information you provide us in our super detailed questionnaire. Most charter boats will move only once or maybe twice a day. We have NO LIMITS. We'll go for an early morning sail, then drop anchor for breakfast & snorkeling, then sail to a new location for scuba diving & lunch, then set sail again if you like to find a calm cove to swim & relax before going to a Tiki bar!

What makes this yacht unique

3. Entertainment: We are the ONLY charter boat in the Virgin Islands with a full-blown Karaoke & DJ disco sound & lighting system. So if you like to sing & dance, we can crank up the music & pump up the jam for you!

4. Water Toys: In addition to snorkeling and all the water toys you can imagine, we are also a full-fledged live-aboard dive boat with everything needed to accommodate the biggest diving enthusiasts. Not only do we carry a dozen dive tanks onboard, but we have not just one, but two twin dive compressors allowing us to fill up four air tanks at once so we’re always ready whenever you want to take another underwater adventure.

If you’re not a certified scuba diver, we even have a snuba system which is a cross between snorkel and scuba. We take you down diving up to 40’ deep with a dive regulator on a long hose with a compressor at the surface providing you air while you enjoy the same diving experience a certified scuba diver enjoys.

We have water skis, wake boards, multiple pull toys and tubes, including our famous “Big Bannana”. And for relaxing, our floats don’t end with just our noodles and resort float mats, we also are the ONLY charter boat in the Caribbean to have an original, exclusive monster sized floating mat that’s 6 feet wide and 20 feet long which makes it perfect for a dozen adults to relax on, or for several kids to run or play “king of the hill” because it’s so big you can stand and dance on it!

Also, all other charter boats have a true 'dinghy'. A small inflatable boat with a 15 hp outboard engine used to make multiple trips to take your big group to shore excursions, snorkeling, diving and such. We have a full-blown 25' speedboat with a 225hp outboard that's coast guard certified for 16 passengers, so it's big enough to carry everyone in your group together in one trip. And if you have boating experience, you might get to take the speed boat & enjoy it without us.

8 day adventure

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the BVI 5 times now. We typically Bareboat. We found the freedom online and decided to try something new due to the size of our group. This was the best trip our family has ever been on. The #1 Reason was the crew. Hands down the best in the BVI. We found so many hidden jewels we would have never known about. Snorkeled with turtles,private beaches, history of the islands we never knew, and new adventures every single morning. Something for every single member of our 12 person group. Ages 11-48. Snorkeling like we never knew existed on islands we have visited many times !! Zen Len makes you want to follow him wherever he goes....an adventure and a story with every step. The Chef Brendan was amazing. Every meal was delicious with a surprising presentation that makes you feel pampered. Goose made us all feel safe wherever we were and kept boys busy with pull ups, rope climbing and doing whatever he showed us!! Jen was the BEST !! So much fun and got every kid in the water to night snorkel. She is one in a million. They went above and beyond to make this trip the best one ever. There is no other way to see the BVI. We are booking again for next year and likely every year after that. This boat is huge. Comfortable and beds are nicest of any boat we have ever been on. We usually charter with new moorings boats and the beds are so uncomfortable. The freedom had very comfortable beds and jen had our cabins tidy and ready for a well deserved nights sleep every night !! Bathrooms are big and more than enough room to shower etc. Every morning was beautiful with coffee on the bow watching the beautiful scenery as captain had us on our way to our next adventure when we arose. If you are thinking about his charter you will not be disappointed !!

Completely Fabulous Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We took a group of 8 on the Freedom and couldn't have been more pleased. The crew was over the top with its hospitality. We were pampered. And the whole crew was very knowledgeable about the islands and history. For a unique vacation experience that is very low stress, you won't find a better value.

We took over a year to plan this vacation and it was worth every minute.

Our same group did St. Maarten a few years ago on land. It was great, but there's something about being ON the water!

Freedom was fabulous!

Priceless family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Well, after one and a half years of planning and hoping this vacation would meet my expectations I would have to say it went above and beyond. We had a wonderful time and the crew was exceptional. I told my wife this past week that this was the first time in my adult life that no one said "no" to me for a full week. Unbelievable! Zen Len, Sue, Jen, Andrew and Trey were the most polite, attentive people to spend a week with on a boat. They catered to our every need.

When we arrived on the boat I remember Len saying his job was to make this NOT a great trip, but the best trip we've ever been on. I also remember thinking we've had some wonderful trips and that would be a high bar. However, I think Len attained that bar. Len was not only a great captain, but a great dive master, masseuse, historian, botanist and overall man of unparalleled knowledge. Sue's meals were delicious and she cooked all of our favorite foods based on the questionaire we filled out before the trip.

We expected to have a relaxing sailing trip to the BVI, but came away with so much more. Thanks again for providing us with a wonderful week that all of my family will remember for years to come.

Amazing Bucket List trip!

  • 5 of 5

The Freedom staff and boat exceeded expectations for this bucket list trip for 8 days with 5 couples. Fredrick wss an excellent communicator for the 14 months (yes, 14!) our group planned this trip, answering basic questions to continually ensuring this was OUR vacation and anything we wanted, they would arrange. There was plenty of room for our group to relax, catch some sun, read a book or enjoying cocktails while jamming to great music. Our island stops were amazing and ZenLen is a master historian, naturalist and story teller all in one. Every island was beautiful and the staff provided great information about the various recommended options at each location. The awesome crew of Len, Johnny, Chantel and Nichole went above and beyond our expectations to provide excellent food, snorkel/diving experiences, lily pad relaxation, banana boat fun, sailing lessons, dance party nights - and the list goes on. I highly recommend a trip on Freedom for those that love to be on the water.

Trip of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

I was with a group of 10 friends who traveled for a week on Freedom through the BVI! It was AMAZING!!! The boat itself was roomy, the beds were comfortable, the water toys were a blast! But what made this trip the best was the amazing crew! Zen Len (our captain) knows everything about the seas, the islands, the history of the BVI. He is an epic story teller; we heard lots about piracy, sunken ships, nature, etc.! He also led some of us in a morning sun salutation on the boat deck in the morning. For others member of our group who were having ear or stomach issues, Zen Len served as the ship doctor, offering natural remedies that did the trick! Our First Mate (Johnny) spent hours trying to teach my water-averse husband to swim (or at least ensure he was comfortable in the water). He did a great job, as it truly is the most comfortable my husband has ever been in the water. Johnny swam by his side as he snorkeled and he swam by his side when we needed to swim to shore. Nicole was our "hostess with the mostess". She was checking in regularly to bring us drinks or just make sure all our needs were taken care of. Our Chef (Shantel) was also amazing. She catered to a few different food requirements (we had vegetarians with us and a food allergy). Every meal was perfect! And beyond all the things the crew did for us…they were just plain FUN! They played all the various types of music we wanted (they had 140,000 songs to choose from). And, they even created a special "Valentine's Day Play List" for dinner on Valentine's Day. The list was created by asking each couple their wedding songs or favorite romantic songs! I highly recommend a trip on Freedom. You will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Tina, thank you soooo super much for your super sweet and kind words! You really do continue to be as nice and sweet online as you were in person on your vacation with us on FREEDOM! It truly was a joy and a pleasure to tour you and your friends around the islands that we love so much we've made them our home. There are so many certain songs that I can no longer hear playing without it triggering such fond memories of your group! Thank you so much for joining us on board FREEDOM and giving us the chance to show you how much fun it is to go sailing all over the beautiful Virgin Islands! We very much look forward to seeing you again real soon! Warmest Personal Regards, Zen-Len, Fredrick & Barbie and the Crew :)

Time of your life

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great experience. I went for 10 days with a large group of friends. Freedom was the perfect place to be with all of them. The boat itself was spacious, safe, comfortable and just freakin' amazing. Never did I feel crowded or that I couldn't find a place to relax and be by myself. Plenty of room for group hang out time also. I sleep outside almost every night and it was safe and comfortable.

They had all the fun toys you could want on a trip around the British Islands. My personal favorites were the sea kayak and the Lilypad. I had no idea what a Lilypad was until this trip and anyone who lives near water has to get one. All the amenities and everything on the video is accurate and true. Could not ask for a better boat.

BUT the true gift of this trip was our crew. Words will not truly describe how awesome they were but I am going to try. I have never been on this kind of sailing/boating trip and my expectations on the crew were not even close to what we got.

We had a crew of two, since we made our own meals. ZenLen (or what I liked to call him THE ZEN MASTER) was the captain and also one of the owners of Freedom. He has an exceptional and pretty serious resume. Things like SWAT and Ex-marine and Master diver etc. This made me feel super safe but beyond the resume is an unbelievably kind, interesting, go above and beyond captain. He made sure we had everything we needed, he checked in daily to made sure we were right where we wanted to be doing exactly what we wanted to be doing. He was never intrusive and always had great suggestions. He never steered us wrong and I really appreciate all the input he gave. Second crew member was Tugboat (Tuggy) aka Stephen. Truly crazy fun yet get the job done kind of guy. Always helpful, hilarious and worked well with ZenLen.

I am so glad to have meet both of these guys. They TRULY made this experience what it was. Anyone can have a boat and rent it out but no one could have made this trip more enjoyable.

I thank both of them for their hard work and dedication to our vacation being as perfect as possible. This is a trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend you take a trip with these folks on Freedom.

My suggestion to ZenLen is to have a similiar boat trip but a Boot camp boat trip. Did I mention he is THE ZEN MASTER.
