Description

With this boat, it’s more about the journey than the destination! We are self-proclaimed travelers who moved from the mainland in search of adventure and new opportunity. We learned the local way of life, and the amazing destinations that the British/U.S. Virgin Islands have to offer, and would love to share our expertise with you during your travels. We are truly passionate about our little chain of islands, and want to make sure that by the end of your day with them, you’ll have memories to last a life time.

Crew

Joe has an interesting story on how he got into the Charter Business. He graduated from Northern Illinois University in 2007 with a degree in business marketing, and began working in the corporate world as a recruiter. He worked in a cubicle for 3 years. There wasn’t a window in site, the fluorescent lights seemed to burn a hole in his soul, and he was being told he couldn’t wear certain things (even though he looked really good!)… As opposed to feeling good about being able to support himself on a decent salary he decided to quit his job right after the bubble burst shocking his boss and friends. He basically told his family and friends that this way of life sucks, and he was going to search for new opportunities in the Virgin Islands. Upon arriving he ended up getting a job as a crew member for a 65’ sailing catamaran that took cruise ship guests out sailing and snorkeling. His passion for life was instantly re-ignited, and he knew he had made a great decision making the move to the Virgin Islands. He worked for a year on the catamaran, met a super hot and cool chick named Amanda, and the two of them got hitched and started their own charter company! Joe has his captains license, is CPR certified, and has a true passion for boating in the Virgin Islands. Everyday he spends with his guests is enjoyed just as much by him, as his guests, and he is grateful for being able to make a living doing something he enjoys so much. He says this job should almost be illegal b/c it’s so rewarding and fun! Joe captains charters himself and also manages other captains for the business. He requires captains to have extensive boating knowledge/licenses for safety, and won’t hire anyone unless they’re passionate about the job. He and Amanda recently bought an old school bus which they plan on converting to an eco-friendly off grid tiny home that will be parked somewhere to be determined on the island of St. Thomas.

Boat Owner

Amanda

Member since October 2015

I was lucky enough to have an uncle who lived in St. Thomas when I was growing up, so I would spend her summers here in the Virgin Islands hanging out at beaches, camping, serving drinks (at a bar at age 10 no joke), and taking in all the natural beauty that these islands have to offer. I always knew that after college I would come back to the islands to live at least for a year, and then I would move back and start a big girl job.

This probably would have happened if I hadn’t run into an interesting guy one day at a local St. John watering hole known as Woody’s. It was here that I met Joe, and ended up riding the ferry back to St. Thomas with him and ending the night on a friendly handshake (Joe played it cool). We fell in love pretty quickly, got a dog, got hitched and started two business’s with one of them being this charter company.

Overall, I love my little chain of islands that I now call home, and cant wait to talk to you about your groups interests and how I can make your day the best day of your vacation.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Benner, VI.

A slice of Americana with an unmistakably laid-back Caribbean vibe! Enjoy your vacation in this incredible Caribbean paradise and explore the US Virgin Islands on a private yacht charter from Sailo.

As a territory of the United States, US citizens don’t even need a passport to fly to this tropical paradise. That makes it a popular destination for Americans seeking some winter sun, and you’ll find the US Virgin Islands (or USVIs) perfect for a Caribbean sailing vacation.

FAQs

What type of yacht should I charter?

No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats on Sailo. For an exclusive experience, Sailo recommends chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, Sailo has access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 - 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask! more...

What should I bring?

Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with your captain regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, Sailo recommends using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple. more...

How long does a rental last?

The basic daily rental is structured as either a quarter-, half-, or full-day. A quarter-day is two hours, a half-day is four hours, and a full-day is eight hours. You can also discuss a custom trip with the boat by contacting the owner through Sailo. Most term charters (weekly rentals) are from Saturday to Saturday. Keep in mind that the boat generally needs to be back at the dock by Friday evening, and you will need to be off the boat on Saturday morning so they can prepare the boat for the next guests. more...
