World Cricket Cup









There’s still a month of games to go in the World Cricket Cup with many matches scheduled for Antigua’s brand new multi-million dollar (as in $US, not EC) stadium.

 We have lots of boats and crews ready for your last minute bookings!

AMNERIS, 75’ Alden ketch.  If you’re looking for yacht with a crew that truly enjoys having children on board, Amneris is a great choice. And, the yacht itself is very child safe.  The cockpit is very large with high coamings and a latching gate, plus there is full safety netting for the lifelines.  Three en suite cabins:  Aft master has two ¾ berths and a dressing table/desk,

Two guest cabins have upper/lower singles. 

 Comments from the Christmas 2006 guests, a family of five:  “(Captain) Alex, you had everyone's respect, including my 'much sailed' husband and an otherwise blasé 16 year old!  Your Ozzie charm and natural courtesy, coupled with serious sailing skills and constant carefulness, made all aboard feel relaxed and secure.”

$14,900/2     $15,900/4     $16,900/6 - inclusive except taxes, dockage &  communications.  Pays travel agent commission

CDI-Caliope_of_Arne.jpg (4141 bytes)CALLIOPE, 60’ schooner, offers 2 cabins with double lowers/upper singles and 2 cabins with upper/lower singles.  Separate crew quarters and a total of 2 heads and showers.  Chef/owner Fernando Ferdinand had one of the most popular restaurants in St. Thomas back in the early days of the chartering business and was a very sought after yacht chef.  His wife Geri, the stewardess, has years of charter experience.  Captain Tim Hudson, rounds out the crew.

CDI-Ibis.jpg (5064 bytes)IBIS, 60’ sloop.  A beautifully finished gentleman’s yacht, she offers two en suite cabins aft:  the master plus one cabin with upper/lower singles.  Dutch owner/hosts Robert & Nelliemarie Ketelaar are former educators (he taught college level economics, she taught German), very well-traveled and love music from classical to jazz and pop.  They are both excellent chefs.

$6,500/2    $7,500/4 – inclusive except bar, taxes, dockage and communications.  Pays travel agent commission.

SUDIKI, 61’ sloop.  Owner/hosts Duff and Chris Walter worked many months transforming Sudiki’s interior for maximum comfort.  Accommodations are flexible.  A maximum of four guests may choose any two of the three en suite cabins:  two equal masters with queen size beds and a third cabin with upper and lower singles.  Chris and Duff have made the Grenadines their home base for years and know all the best spots.  Recent guests described the boat as a “true beauty” and the crew as “truly a warm and unique couple.”
