Now that we have purchased a four stateroom catamaran called SANCTUARY (click here for photos and rates), other yachts, like these below, are for illustrative purposes only and have been replaced in charter fleets with newer models. OBT will provide clients with other yachts should a larger yacht be necessary (for more than six people) or if you will be sailing in an area where we are unable to locate SANCTUARY during your travel dates.

Here are just a few of the yachts that I favor that are available for charter. There are many different charter companies with different levels of quality and services. I will search for the best value, best quality yacht for each trip. I have learned which boats and companies deliver consistent quality and which sail better than others.

Your safety is a primary concern while on board any yacht we may charter. I will personally inspect the boat for potential problems and to insure that proper safety equipment is on board and operational. When weather is prohibitive, the Captain, in his sole discretion, will determine whether it is safe to proceed as planned or to change the itinerary.

If your party is too large for any of these boats, I can arrange for another skipper to join a separate boat for a flotilla arrangement. Perhaps you will be bringing a qualified sailor to handle one yacht while I skipper the other? It's all cool, mon, in the islands we all brothers, mon.


Sleeps 8 guests in four double staterooms, crew quarters for two forward. Four heads.


Sleeps 6 guests with two crew, in four double staterooms, two heads. Very roomy, easy to sail, we had a ball on her a few years back in Antigua and Guadeloupe.


Sleeps 10 guests (though 8 is preferable), two crew bunks, five heads. While five heads sounds like a good idea for privacy and not being rushed, it tends to give the impression that you can stay under the shower longer and therefore use up too much water. But this is a nice boat so what the heck!


Sleeps 6 guests in three double staterooms, two heads, great for two-three couples plus crew, or one couple for a romantic getaway or second honeymoon. Because it has a bunk bed arrangement, it is a great boat for kids. It works for two couples each bringing one child or one couple with three kids. Otherwise, two couples aft with the crew forward is the perfect combination for this yacht.
