Happily married for 30 years with 4 kids, and three grandchildren (so far) Captain Derek and Brenda decided that the Caribbean would be the perfect place for a fun-filled next chapter in their lives. Prompted by their love of sailing, our “empty nest” and a desire for a lifestyle change they decided to do what we loved. So, leaving behind a successful business and some shocked family and friends, they moved aboard Bella Vita. Derek and Brenda have been sailing for the past 20+ Years. Their adventures have included cruising the U.S. East Coast, the Caribbean and part of the Med. Derek holds a US Coast Guard Masters license with Sailing Endorsement and Brenda, also a captain, has her US Coast Guard OUPV. Both are also open water dive certified and CPR/AED/First Aid certified. About Derek: Derek is a born and raised Southern Gentleman (even though he doesn’t have much of the accent). He has owned successful businesses, coached competitive soccer teams, served on the local YMCA board and believes in giving back to his community. Derek’s knowledge of the local area allows him to adapt your charter to suit your desires – showing you hidden bays and coves as well as hitting all the top US/BVI hot spots. Derek will welcome you with sto205161_290179054435968_1203587007_nries, tidbits of history and more. On the surface Derek feels that vacations should be pretty simple; water, beach, a good book and sailing around with a cold drink in your hand. About Brenda: Brenda is a well traveled military brat (Air Force) but ended up in Raleigh, NC where she met Derek. Brenda is a successful business woman, mom and an accomplished cook. Bella Vita offers surprisingly diverse dining, with a culinary variety that includes Southern comfort foods, seafood, down-home fare like dirty rice, shrimp and grits, sweet potatoes, fresh fruits, vegetables and palate pleasing treats. Brenda feels that it’s always special to pause, sit down and share a good meal, whether it’s with the family or a get-together with friends. She is more than happy to meet any dietary needs. You will feel her warm and gracious North Carolina charm the moment you walk on-board. So, whether it’s a family vacation with the kids in tow – or if you just want to become one again for a few days….Welcome Aboard…Shoes Optional – Fun Required!

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...
