 A Great Crew Makes A Caribbean Sailing Vacation Unforgettable

Amazing Caribbean sailing vacations await! Book catamaran Karizma | iYachtClub

Captain Brad and Cathy met over 21 years ago when Brads’ Gunnery Sergeant, who happened to be Cathy’s uncle, ordered Brad to call his niece and take her out on a date.  It seems to have taken! 

They both grew up boating, waterskiing, hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling in the beautiful outdoors of Idaho, which they continue doing together in the off season in Montana.  They love to ride their Harley Davidson and to travel as much as possible.   In addition to travel, Brad and Cathy enjoy running and in 2010 completed the Seattle Marathon in record slow time! This experience led them to believe anything is possible as long as you put one foot forward.

Cathy has always enjoyed cooking and Brad has benefited from it greatly!  She had a custom wedding cake business in Idaho which she excelled at.  With both of their large families and Cathy’s joy in putting on large holiday and birthday gatherings, she is well versed in cooking a varied menu for all types of appetites.  Whether you want a Caribbean style, or a Montana flavored meal she can custom design the meals to your desires. 

Brad first recognized a keen interest for water sports while working on his Eagle Scout Badge. Feeling more at home on water than on land, being on a boat is definitely his “Happy Place.” Brad and Cathy’s  passion for sailing grew out of a trip to Tahiti where they became acquainted with the cruising life. Coming home to Idaho they bought their first sailboat in a used car lot and taught themselves to sail on mountain lakes.

Trading that first boat for a larger one, they attended a live-aboard ASA certification course in San Diego and shortly thereafter sailed the new boat in the Sea of Cortez. Yearning for larger sailing grounds, Brad and Cathy relocated to the Pacific Northwest to chase the sailing dream and sailed extensively in Puget Sound, the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands and up into Desolation Sound. They lived aboard their own 42’ sailboat for 5 years when, wanting to share their love of sailing, they opened and operated a successful vacation property and day-charter business on San Juan Island. After becoming “empty-nesters” they realized their dream of living where “the weather suits their clothes,” and continue to enjoy the chartering, hospitality, and the sailing lifestyle in the Caribbean!

Brad and Cathy are very family oriented and enjoy seeing happy families and kids having fun. They thrive in the Caribbean on finding the right adventures to suit the desires of the families that come down to sail on Karizma. Let them know what you want to do while in the Caribbean and they will custom plan the trip to check off all the boxes.  Whether it is an anchorage all to yourselves or a place with plenty of other boats to watch, they will make sure you spend your time exactly the way you want. 

 

 

What We Like About This Charter Yacht

53 feet is a nice size for a charter catamaran, but Karizma feels especially spacious because of the towering headroom which makes every interior space feel gigantic. If you have big and tall people in your family or group charter -Karizma is the best choice. We also love that Karizma is a family boat and the owner really understands what makes a BVI crewed yacht charter special, outfitting Karizma with all of the fun toys that make a family Caribbean sailing vacation really memorable.

The crew also sets Karizma apart from other luxury catamarans. Captain Brad and his wife Cathy are adventurous, well-traveled and clearly love introducing this amazing paradise to guests.

Guest Testimonials

It Was Truly a Trip of a Lifetime

We took a trip aboard Karizma. It couldn’t have been better!

From minute one to the last minute of our trip, our Captain made us feel at home onboard with an easy going, friendly charm. Right away he showed us around the yacht, which in itself is amazing: plenty of space to move about, seek privacy, lounge comfortably, sleep like a baby, and even take a refreshing shower.

The comfort and luxury of Karizma was highlighted by the quality of our meals.  Nourishment somehow arrived just when we were hungry and made us feel like we were eating in a high end restaurant at every meal. It was fresh, healthy and satisfying food that always included dessert which we devoured in earnest to fuel our many adventure filled days.

Michelle welcomes guests aboard their Caribbean sailing vacation with a taste of the great cuisine to follow!

The crew felt like old friends after this trip. We felt completely safe with them as they proved to be competent sailors. The captain patiently and graciously showed us the ropes and gave us the opportunity to pitch in with sailing as we desired. We hold both of them in high regard and find ourselves missing their company now that the trip has come to an end.

Our days felt easy, revolving around what we wanted to do, with no rushing or pressure. The Captain gave us solid advice and told many a story about the BVI’s both from natural and historical perspectives as well as the real truth about living there. He enabled us to get a genuine feel for the “life” many of us only dream of. The captain personally led us on hikes, and took us to amazing spots we likely wouldn’t find on our own. From Tarpon feeding on Saba Rock, extraordinary banana daiquiris, a tour of Anegada by truck complete with a picnic on a beautiful secluded beach…and many more.

We left Karizma feeling we had a satisfying mix of pleasure, relaxation and adventure. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and not one of us wanted to wake up from our dream vacation on Karizma. We will be back!

We Had a Wonderful Time!

We really had a wonderful time on the Karizma. We have no complaints whatsoever. Really! Karizma’s crew really made the trip memorable. We all felt like they were just part of the family. I think there is always some bit of apprehension when meeting new people and knowing that you will be in close quarters for the week, but the crew went above and beyond in making us feel at home. They were able to accommodate us in every way. We would happily cruise with them again.~The Gobers

Outstanding Quality of Service and Food on Karizma!

 

I have been waiting for a few years for this wonderful trip. It truly is a dream come true for me…I feel very lucky and blessed to be able to be a part of such a magical trip! Thanks to the crew you, this week was filled with lots of laughs, adventure, fantastic food and an atmosphere of pure relaxation! Thank you for your warmth and love and hospitality! ~Alex and JF

This is my 5th time in the USVI/BVI’s. We experienced the Karizma for the first time and were more than happy with our choice. We’ve experienced other cats and the quality of service and the food of the Karizma is better than most. Our hosts went out of there way to make our trip in paradise even more enjoyable. Thank you to the crew for their attentive service, their fabulous food and good stories! ~Robert and Sonia

Book Karizma for the ultimate in family Caribbean sailing vacations | iYachtClubKarimza’s crew is the Best! They are such great people and showed us the most fantastic trip ever! They fed us so well (too well maybe ?) and showed us around the BVI’s in such a fun way.

The tubing, wake boarding, snorkeling, swimming, jumping off the top of the boat, paddle boarding and everything else were beyond awesome! They both played Uno and other games with us and the kids and were just super fun to hang out with, especially while on the search for the ‘GreatWhiteHippoCrocoDuckAsoroPusArooit’
