The catamaran’s spacious salon is surrounded by vertical windows offering 360-degree visibility and plenty of natural light. A large u-shaped lounge is the central social area and converts to an elegant space for formal indoor dining. The large up-galley has a convenient storage console that separates it from the salon. Open the large sliding doors and the living area flows outside to the spacious aft terrace. Here guests can relax under a large bimini that shades a table and seating for eight or more as Amazing Blues installed the larger aft dining table for maximum comfort.

Up a spiral staircase from the main deck, the flybridge is a popular spot with guests. Forward and away, the helm is surrounded by electric winches and all the necessary sail-control lines for the skipper. At the aft of the flybridge there are cushioned benches for sitting and lounging and a great sunbathing area, all separated from the helm station. A canvas flybridge top helps protect everyone from the sun.

Heading forward, the yacht’s large foredeck provides wonderful spaces for sunbathing on large comfortable pads, perfect for experiencing the thrill of being under sail on this amazing sailing yacht.

Below deck, four splendid staterooms which accommodate eight guests in luxurious comfort. The aft starboard master cabin features a full walk-around bed, desk and sitting area, large en-suite bathroom, and access to both the aft terrace and main salon.

Meet the Crew

John & Shirelle

CAPTAIN JOHN CRAFFORD

John Crafford grew up on a farm near the Kruger Park in northeastern South Africa. Surrounded by acres of wilderness, he learned to ride a motorcycle before he could ride a bicycle. Growing up he spent loads of free time aboard the family boat catching fish and lobster and having fun. The family always stayed near the ocean. When John was not out with them on the boat he was honing his surfing skills. He remembers, "As a kid I always used to sit on the rocks after surfing and wish I had a yacht that I could just sail straight toward the horizon until I hit land again."

John has sailed extensively throughout the Bahamas and the Caribbean including St Martin, St Barth's, Anguilla, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Guadeloupe. He is a keen diver and is especially enthusiastic about charter guests who want to explore the undersea world. When underway with a nice stiff breeze, he goes full sail, letting the yacht slice through the waves, often with guests enjoying a turn at the helm. At the end of an exciting day there's nothing more sublime than relaxing on the aft deck, tropical cocktail in hand, and discussing tomorrow's adventures.

As a charter Captain, John's goal is to create a homey environment where people feel safe and comfortable. "People have always complemented us on how relaxed they felt on our yacht. We aim to create a vacation where CEO's, doctors, and parents can just let go and feel like kids again." His motto: A positive life is a happy life. ..read more

CHEF/MATE SHIRELLE PARIS

Shirelle was raised in Israel, in a small town where people cared a lot about nature. Her family grew their own organic fruits and vegetables. She believes that there is no substitute for the freshest, local ingredients when designing a menu. When she was 20 years old she moved to a picturesque surfing town in the coast. There, she was completely captivated by the vastness and beauty of the Mediterranean Sea. She plunged into water sports with zeal; sailing, paddle boarding, diving, and snorkeling.

On shore, cooking was always an important event in her family. She recalls, "We always used to host a lot of guests for dinner. From the time that I was a young kid I was there to help my mother with meal preparation for the crowd. I enjoyed being in the kitchen with her. She was a very talented, creative cook and taught me all different types of cuisine from all over the world." While Shirelle's favorite culinary style is Mediterranean, she can easily cater to lots of different preferences, from Asian cuisine to American comfort food. In fact, Shirelle majored in nutrition and holistic studies in college and has expertise in special diets.

As a stewardess, Shirelle aims to make Amazing Blues a home away from home for her guests. The yacht has a superb layout, whether guests want to be together, or find a little personal space. There are lots of toys on board and Shirelle is a patient instructor for guests who want to try something new. She says, "I am really relaxed and easy going. Whatever guests need I'm there for them. I love making people happy and serving great food is my way to show happiness and love.

 January 15-20, 2017 ~ Spectacular!!
Our family had the pleasure to spend four days on the Amazing Blues. My mom, sister and I had so much fun! We went snorkeling off of several islands and saw some amazing reefs and unique fish. We went to a canopy tour on Tortola Island for the first time! It was a cool experience.

Each morning after breakfast our dear Captain John proposed several plans for the day and we chose what seemed the most interesting to us. Captain John is kind, funny and very helpful, even took us tubing. That was an adventure!

As we requested vegan and non-gluten meals for the four days on the Amazing Blues, Chef Shirelle tackled the challenge with grace. She cooked delicious breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner and of course dessert! Some of our favorite items: almond pilaf hummus, tuna (yes, we ate fish), quiche, endless tasty salads, key lime pie, so much! She is very sweet, kind and it was such a pleasure to have met her! The harmony on the catamaran was spectacular!

Please read this wonderful review from guests on Blues....

 December 19 - 26, 2016 ~ BVI ~ Remarkable!!
We chartered the Amazing Blues catamaran in Dec 2016 and had the most wonderful time!

If you can, charter Amazing Blues and be prepared for the most fantastic captain and first mate/chef, John and Shirelle. I almost cried when we had to leave...that's how awesome they were. We have A LOT of food sensitivities/health issues in the family and Shirelle bent over backwards to make sure everyone stayed healthy and incredibly well fed. Remarkable feat!

Amazing week with an amazing captain! Will was awesome and attended to our every need. The water sports, visits to islands, food and boat was wonderful! Rene worked to accommodate us with all meals Delicious!! We will be back!

Heres to tall ships. Heres to small ships. Heres to all the ships on the sea. But the BEST ships are friendships!

 July 15 - 22, 2016 - Amazing!
It was very interesting all the places that Will took us and it was very nice. The food was excellent, very colorful and it was so very tasty. We got to celebrate Wills birthday with a cake that was delicious!

The crew was the BEST, and this ship is amazing because of Will & Billy! We shared many fun days and saw many gorgeous places.

Thank you all very much for the excellent adventure. You made it wonderful, as was the food and the memories. We will be back next year!!

 June 5 - 11, 2016 - Complete Satisfaction!
I just wanted to send a short note relaying our satisfaction with the catamaran charter we undertook last week. Satisfaction is an understatement, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The boat was fantastic, we appreciated the fine furnishing, spacious ( for a boat) rooms, ample seating area and comforts on board. Will, the captain was really great for our group. He interacted fantastically with our varied group (children, young adults and my husband and I), always providing great ideas be it sailing, snorkeling, water sports or island activities. His knowledge of the area was very enlightening and we thoroughly enjoyed having him as our captain. Sher was our last minute chef and worked out great also. John and I dine out considerable in fine restaurants all over the world and we were very impressed with her culinary skills, she also was extremely gracious in accommodating my unusual diet and the children's finicky diets.

Againwe want to convey our appreciation for the fine work everyone did to make our family vacation so special.

 20-29 May BVI Had the time of our lives
Our Amazing Blues BVI Adventure was truly a once in a lifetime experience! The boat was perfect and offered a wide range of water sports to accommodate all eight of us and allowed us to adapt to the great diversity of our needs, as we motored and sailed through the BVIs. With all the creature comforts and activities offered, the highlight of the trip was the gracious and professional crew! One of our trip goals was diving in the BVIs. Will, certified dive master, crafted excellent dive plans that gave us the opportunity to fully experience the variety of underwater life all around the reefs. He was knowledgeable of reef life and was able to point out the many different highlights of the various creatures, plus the unique features of each dive site, like sunken ships, geographic anomalies, and current dive conditions. For those on the boat that were not divers, Will created opportunities to snorkel, paddle board, or use the water scooters. Another highlight of the trip was the phenomenal chef. Everyone savored the many delicious meals. The meals and snacks could not be resisted. The crew made the experience. Always focused on safety and making each experience unique and memorable. This experience can only be described as FANTASTIC!!! What a wonderful time. You two were great. Enjoyed very much. Thank you so much. Your friends, Lynda & Dave

An awesome experience. The crew could not have been more accommodating.

Randall & Vickie

Had the time of our lives, fantastic crew. Going home with lots of memories.

Randy & Jeanette

Special places, special crew. What a pleasure to know you and spend time together in and out of the water. Unforgettable. Thank you isnt enough. Tim

Thanks for the coral and reef experience. Kirt

 March 2016 - BVI - Loved Every Minute!
Captain Will did a great job. He knows the BVI landscape and how to be in the right place at the right time. He was also a very good boat handler and a good sailor. I highly recommend him to any of my friends

The food, drinks, service,leisure activities and overall experience were all excellent!

Many grateful thanks to Captain Will and Rene. Bravo!!

Richard

We love Amazing Blues and will have the blues when we leave. Captain Will and Rene are perfect!

Debra

Thank you for taking such good care of us! We had a lovely time and loved every minute of it!

Amy and David

 March 6-11, 2016 - Fun times!
Pick up at the west end, meet and greet and off to Norman Island! Snorkeling and swimming, lots of fish! The Privateer Bay Caves were awesome!

Every meal was 5 star, thank you Chef Rene! Your hard work was greatly appreciated! Captain Will & Rene made our week perfect!

Island adventures on Virgin Gorda; a hike to the baths and the cab ride was fun (chickens, goats, giant boulders!) Anegada Island never disappoints! Lovely bay, and dinner on the beach with everyone was a great way to end the day.

Too many fun times to list them all! Amazing Blues was the best week! Thank you to Captain Will and Rene!!

Reviews for Amazing Blues with previous crew:

Will and Rene were fabulous. Very friendly, accommodating and willing to customize our trip at any point.

Amazing Blues was amazing (can I say that?!?!). Therefore aptly named. Almost brand new, more spacious than we anticipated and the crew is fastidious about maintenance!

Food was great. Both crew members can cook and they were very willing to customize.

All in all our family had the trip of a lifetime.
