On the heels of a glowing post-charter review by recent guests, sailing yacht catamaran DREAMING ON has announced a Thanksgiving crewed catamaran charters special.
The recipient of many favorable cruise-in-review client letters, crewmembers Iza and Geoff are asking,
“Why have turkey at home when you can have LOBSTER in paradise for Thanksgiving?”
Iza and Geoff and their 47’ Leopard catamaran DREAMING ON, awarded runner up at last week’s BVI Boat Show as “Best Catamaran under 50 feet,” are offering two specials for the Thanksgiving holidays:
Any 3 or 4 night charter with no surcharge
7 nights for the price of 6
…and guests may opt for Lobster on Thanksgiving or traditional turkey ~
Launched in 2003 and immaculately maintained, crewed catamaran sailing yacht DREAMING ON is one of the most popular vessels offering crewed charters. This Virgin Islands yacht charter vessel offers accommodations for 6 guests in 3 cabins, each with ensuite bathrooms.
The yacht’s watertoy inventory includes towable toys such as a wakeboard, kneeboard, and a ski-tube, along with fishing and snorkel gear.
Doing her part for the yachting industry’s ongoing GREEN initiative, the catamaran is equipped with wind scoops to limit the need for air-conditioning. Solar panels have also been installed to provide clean electricity. The crew also purchases earth-friendly paper products, biodegradable cleaning products, and local organic produce when available.
When not on charter, Geoff and Iza are often seen helping with reef and beach clean-up projects.
Available for Caribbean yacht charters, the yacht is based in the British Virgin Islands. Her published rate is $11,000 per week for 2 guests, $12,250 per week for 4 guests, and $13,250 per week for 6 passengers. Rates are inclusive of meals and the ship’s bar.
Similar sailing catamaran yachts available in the Caribbean include the 62′
catamaran sail yacht AVALON ($26,000 per week, all inclusive), the 56′ catamaran sail yacht BACCHUS (€ 20,000 per week, all inclusive), and the 65′ sail catamaran WORLD’S END (€23,400 per week, plus expenses).

I can’t say enough about the hospitality they offered, their kindness, the comfort – they are the ultimate in hosting this type of trip.
To say that they exceeded our expectations is an understatement.
The food was a 15 out of 10…every meal was better than the last. Homemade bread every day!!!! Iza made sure that all of our requests were met when it came to the menu. She was even considerate enough to remember which one of us didn’t like eggs and also made the portion sizes perfect for each individual. The four of us all love to eat and enjoy good food and her food was above and beyond. I have requested all of her recipes but I don’t think I will be able to replicate her touch when it came to preparing our meals.
The boat was always clean and unfortunately Geoff and Iza spent quite a bit of time picking up after us….
We found the boat to be the perfect size for us, the best part was the front bow with the trampolines. Laying out there when the sails were up and we were crashing into the waves was an experience we will never forget.
I should also mention the hammock and being able to drink a mimosa while laying out there in the morning sun was wonderful. The cabins were clean and bathrooms were always clean.
The outside dining table was the only place we ate. The fact that it was shaded and out of the sun was perfect and the seating was so comfortable. Oh, and I would be re-missed (sic) if I didn’t mention the table settings that she had…the thought, the time, the effort that was put into our vacation is unmatched.
Geoff was a wonderful captain. Our itinerary was perfect and it allowed us to see what we wanted; the only flaw was that we didn’t have more time to continue our journey.
We can’t wait to book our next trip with Geoff and Iza and see some of the other islands we weren’t able to squeeze in this trip. I have traveled all over the world and between the four of us on this trip we have covered most of the world. This was by far the best vacation I have had.
I have a villa booked in St. John for a week in January and we are trying to figure out a way to cancel and stay with Geoff and Iza instead. If we can’t cancel then we will be with them for at least two nights and go to the full moon party.
I think this summarizes our experience…
Bottom line – Geoff and Iza are the best of the best! The trip wouldn’t have been half as wonderful if we had a different crew. There hasn’t been a day so far that we haven’t said “I miss Geoff and Iza”.

We’re just back from a week on board sail catamaran DREAMING ON, sailing the BVIs in the capable hands of our wonderful crew, Geoff and Iza. We were also vacationing with another couple…and we all agreed that the whole experience exceeded our expectations by far, to the extent that we have already booked again for next year!
This is all down to Geoff and Iza who are a very special and generous couple – it was like sailing with good friends – the chemistry was perfect and we just hit it off.
They welcomed us on board their beautiful home and anticipated our every need. Iza is an amazing cook – the food (presentation, quality and variety) is better than you get in most good restaurants and all prepared in a galley kitchen – the sushi in particular was unbelievable! And Geoff…well, in our opinion he makes a better Painkiller than the Soggy Dollar (as well as being a great Captain).
They had arranged an itinerary for us (but it was flexible) and we went to different, islands and/or bays every day. For instance, a sail to Anegada, followed by a fabulous lobster dinner at the Reef Hotel – highly recommend this!
They took us to all their favorite spots in the BVIs and we couldn’t get enough of the clear blue waters and white sandy beaches – plenty of snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding to be had. In fact, we didn’t really have enough time just to hang out in one place for a day or go tubing or water-skiing, which is why we are returning next year. Now we know all the best spots and where we’d like to go back to and spend more time.
(Catamaran DREAMING ON) is comfortable and has plenty of space, both out the front on the ‘trampolines’ and the shady area at the back by the cockpit where we enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Overall, for anyone out there considering a luxury yacht charter, I would highly recommend, without hesitation, DREAMING ON, and Geoff and Iza – it will be one of the (if not THE) best vacations of your life! We certainly can’t wait to get back on board next year…..
