Crew

Captain: Darrel Hearne Nationality: South Africa Number of Crew: 2 Languages: English Darrel Hearne grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he spent his time prowling the suburban jungles and raising his pet lion, Chaos. He also managed to actually finish school, and holds degrees in actuarial science, accounting and company law, as well as being a lieutenant in the South African National Defense Force. In 2003 he decided to sell his house, quit the rat race, and go to sea. He moved to Cape Town in South Africa, to upgrade his sailing qualifications. After several months of sailing some of the roughest waters on the planet, he finished his qualifications and holds a commercially-endorsed Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster Ocean Skipper’s ticket. He has lived and sailed in the Caribbean for the past eight years, sailing on a variety of vessels in the charter industry (from beautiful and graceful Oyster sailboats, to a 118ft motor yacht). His absolute favourite, though is Horizon 60 Power Cat. Because she’s awesome. He has extensive sailing experience throughout the Caribbean, and knows where to find the best bars on most islands; essential knowledge for a charter-boat captain. His sailing adventures have taken him from sailing the Eastern US coastline, all the way through the Caribbean chain, and down to Venezuela and Columbia. In his travels he has swum with dolphins, had a 40-foot humpback whale breach right next to (and almost land on) his boat, and sailed through a hurricane. He is keen to experience two of these three things again. He is an experienced and seasoned sailor, with over 30,000 nautical miles in his log book on multiple yacht types. Darrel is a keen water sports fan, and loves to water-ski, wakeboard, kite board and dive. He loves any excuse to get out on the water, and would be more than happy to get involved with any of the water-sport activities offered on the boat. Or any games, really – he is a child at heart and loves to play. Jenn Hart: The vessel team is very excited to welcome Jenn Hart as our new chef. Jenn grew up in Canada (in a well-known haunted house, no less!) but has strong family ties in the islands. She has been visiting the British Virgin Islands for the past twenty years, and took the leap two years ago to move here and become a local. This has worked out well for all concerned, as she brings on board her considerable experience and skill in the industry. Jenn comes from a family of chefs, and has worked in the hospitality industry for many years. Her experience comes from both formal training and hands-on learning. In addition to her delicious culinary creations, she also boasts some mean mixologist skills, and there is an ongoing contest on board as to who mixes the best drinks – thus far Jenn’s Mai Thai leads the polls, with Darrel’s margarita a close second. Either way, the guests win. Jenn is a versatile chef, and works closely with guests in coming up with a charter menu tailored to their preferences and any dietary restrictions. She is a big fan of using locally-grown foodstuffs, and tries as far as possible to incorporate a farm-to-table approach in her cooking. This includes a liaison with a local organic farmer while on charter and a meal designed to feature the freshest, seasonal ingredients. Jenn’s cuisine style is globally diverse, she has some amazing contacts and local suppliers down here that assist in this, and strives to incorporate healthy wholesome nutrition in her delicious meals. A keen surfer, Jenn’s love of the water and the island life are a perfect fit for the charter lifestyle, and her warm and caring nature makes her everyone’s favorite crew member. She is a warm, genuine, friendly soul, and we are very happy to have her on board as part of our team. Together, this experienced and knowledgeable crew will pamper you and ensure that your vacation is a truly memorable experience.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Road Town, VG.

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.

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...
