Cruise the Islands on the most comfortable charter in St. John

Scout 282SF (2007)


  • 28 feet

  • 6 guests

  • 1 cabins

  • 1 heads

  • Captained



This boat is a fast and comfortable 28 foot Scout complete with toilet, changing room and plenty of shade. It is one of the most comfortable center consoles in its class to get you to and from the many beautiful islands and beaches. It really turns heads on the dock and at anchor.

With the price of fuel a concern we felt it was best to choose the most fuel-efficient engines available. Minimizing fuel consumption each day on the water translates into a more affordable adventure. Our business depends on being able to show you beautiful destinations on and below our Caribbean waters,

You will find the cabin on board to be one very pleasing feature. Rain in the Virgin Islands is very “unpredictably predictable” – it will usually rain every day, somewhere between one minute and one hour. Stow your bags, gear, and cameras in the cabin and they stay dry all day no matter the weather or waves. The easily accessible walk-in cabin also lets us bring along some fun water floats and still keep them out of your way when not being used.

And with our new Bimini top we offer you shade protection for those wonderful full sun days!

Full day charters: 8:30am – 4:30pm.
Half day charters: 8:30am – 1:30pm.
British Customs is $35 - $40 per person, cash only.

Boat Owner


Member since October 2015

Captain Rick has been around boats his entire life. When Rick came to the Virgin Islands in 2006, he left behind a colorful career in the northeast as the Captain of many different types of boats.

Upon receiving a degree from The University of Rhode Island in Fisheries and Marine Technology, he worked aboard commercial fishing boats out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. After earning his U.S.C.G. Masters License, Rick went on to Captain large fishing “head” boats in New Jersey. He also captained tug and environmental boats in New York Harbor.

After an adventurous wintertime Atlantic crossing in a 37' sailboat from New Jersey to St. John, Rick discovered a new world that was both Caribbean and American. “At first I was here to deliver a boat, maybe see the Cays, and go home. But after sailing around to such amazing places as Jost Van Dyke and Norman Island, I knew I wanted to find a way to live and work here.”

Rick ran powerboat day charters out of St. Thomas and St. John for other charter companies for four years. In 2010 he took his next step, and began running his own charter business. “We love taking people to all the places they've heard of and also to some of the hidden places we've discovered during our adventures throughout the islands”.

Imagine enjoying your carefree time and unforgettable experience in the Caribbean, with Rick guiding you to one wonderful place after another. He looks forward to you enjoying yourself on the water soon.

A slice of "Americana" with an unmistakably laid-back Caribbean vibe! Enjoy your vacation in this incredible Caribbean paradise and explore the US Virgin Island on private yacht charters 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.

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...
