Catamaran Felicia Overview

Felicia's elegance sets her apart from any other catamarans available for charter. A 65ft long catamaran, she is incredibly spacious and she has been constructed and maintained to extremely high standards.

Not only does she provide an ideal environment for groups of up to 8 adults but she is equally well suited to a large family vacation of up to 10 people or two families who wish to relax together.

Her guest accommodation comprises 3 Queen cabins, 1 King cabin and one small twin cabin, each with their own en-suite facilities, a huge saloon which includes a bar, indoor dining table and a writing & games desk.

The cabins and saloon are all air-conditioned and feature flatscreen TVs with DVD players for which a substantial library of films is available on board. The crew's quarters are accessed completely separately.

The vast deck space includes sun-bathing mattresses, trampolines and two large stepped swim platforms. Each day your only priority will be to decide between sailing, swimming, snorkeling, waterskiing, wakeboarding, scuba diving etc. The pair of teak dining tables in the enormous cockpit provides the perfect base for al-fresco meals which are prepared and served by the professional and friendly crew.

In keeping with our philosophy for Felicia, the crew was carefully selected for their professionalism delivered with true charm and integrity. Their infectious love of the yacht and the Caribbean Virgin Islands will add immeasurably to your stay aboard.

The requirements of each group will always differ. Some charter groups will prefer a greater emphasis on watersports, others on secluded beaches and yet others on excursions ashore. Our constant theme, however, is that you will enjoy the freedom that no other holiday can match!

Come join Felicia in the Virgin Islands for a luxury yachting vacation of a lifetime!

Meet the Crew

Chris & Julie Bennett

Captain Chris Bennett was born in London, England where he received a degree in mechanical engineering. He has been sailing most of his life, starting in the local waters of the English Channel, and since 1992 has made his home on the waters of the Caribbean from the Virgin Islands to Grenada.

Prior to chartering, Chris was the district sales manager for an east coast engineering company. He loves sailing, teaching guests the basics of helmsmanship, and guiding guests on interesting snorkel trips. Chris also loves to find those out-of-the-way spots where his guests can explore quiet anchorages or hike a deserted beach.

For those interested in a bit of local color, Chris will gladly organize a trip to the William Thornton or Foxy's for a beach BBQ and a Jump-Up (party).

Chef / First Mate Julie Bennett was raised and educated a half a world away from Chris, in Kansas. Her degrees include a Bachelor's of Fine Arts and a Masters in Human Resources, which she put to use as a Director of Human Resources before beginning chartering in 1992.

Her culinary talents include the exotic (such as Caribbean & Indian specialties), Nouvelle Cuisine, as well as good old-fashioned heart-of-America dishes.

Julie can tailor your menu to include special dietary needs such as low-fat, vegetarian, or low-carb food plans. She enjoys ensuring people get what they need on their vacation, be it quiet time to unwind with a tropical cocktail in hand, listening to a great selection of music, fishing, snorkeling or a little bit of each.

Reviews for Felicia with Chris & Julie Bennett:

Absolutely excellent! Felicia is extremely comfortable. We liked the outside setting and "hang out" areas.

The food was 5 stars all the way, Julie is a phenomenal chef. Couldn't have been any better, we wanted for nothing. Chris & Julie are absolutely first class!

Tim M, aboard Catamaran Felicia sailing the British Virgin Islands

Simply divine food preparation and presentation. Julie has converted Felicia into a 5 star floating restaurant.

Chris did a great job at helping us focus in on those sights and experiences we wanted to do most and worked out a perfect plan to be sure we enjoyed our time sailing and while in harbor.

Sailing Directions provided excellent recommendations and guidance on the entire needs of a trip of this sort.

The total experience was wonderful. Everything we needed for proper preparation in order for us to have a care free extremely relaxing vacation was provided by Sailing Directions and Yacht Felicia.

Morgan S, aboard Catamaran Felicia sailing the British Virgin Islands

What a wonderful experience spending those five days with you was. Everything and I do mean everything was perfect. Even the weather which provided a little drama was perfect. I have not stopped talking about the two of you.

My dream is to do it again and to share the experience with all who might want to also experience such a wonderful vacation.

Every time I view the video and read the words "We will miss you". I feel certain that you must know that you are missed and were so very deeply appreciated for all that you did. So many details that could be easily missed, you were on top of it.

Chris & Julie,

Thanks for the trip of a lifetime. What beauty you have shown us. Your hospitality was the best ever, man...what a cook, Ms. Julie. Sheila & John

Chris & Julie,

Thank you so much for a trip of a lifetime. You helped make our 10 year anniversary more than I could have ever dreamed. The food and drinks were "out of this world"! Motion sickness is a "thing of the past". I am sure the captain had a lot to do with it!! Thanks again for your friendship. We look forward to returning to Felicia soon...Many more happy sails. Love ya! CC & Joey

 Bonjour St. Martin & St. Barth\'s!
Julie and Chris-

Oh we are back to reality! It is amazing how much piles up while we are away, but as always it is good to be home- especially to give Ollie a hug when we come through the door. I know you know how sweet that can be.....

We had a fabulous time and are so glad to have experienced Felicia. It is so nice of you to send the recipes, which I know will bring us right back to the West Indies when I make them here at home.

Thank you, thank you and good luck with the remainder of your charters and hope that your time in France is productive and relaxing for both of you. The house looks amazing with all your hard work. Enjoy a glass- or two!- of Rose for us.

All the best,

Jim and Lauren

Julie & Chris,

We had a fantastic time with you guys and were so happy to see you and your new “wide girl”, she is beautiful! It was tough to leave the boat for our....last few days on St. Barths. Hope your final charters in the BVI’s go well!

 Fun-filled days!
What a nice email! Our trip home was easy! I am still rocking a bit especially after taking the train to Washington D.C. today to see a friend. We had a great time in the BVIs and miss it already. Even with the short stay it was magical. Next time for sure we want to do 7 or 8 days so we can get out to Anegada and some remote little coves and such!

We can't put into words what an amazing time we have had. Fell in love with beauty and relaxed charm of BVI, but it was the knowledge of the skipper and the hospitality and charm (not to mention fantastic cuisine) of the "Galley Slaves" that made is such a special New Years experience.

We thought the week in the BVI on FELICIA exceeded all expectations. Chris was undoubtedly not only a skipper who knew how to master the yacht, but had an intimate knowledge of the islands and reefs. Julie was a great cook, utterly charming and all our children adored her and the 'mate' Kris.

All in all, a fantastic experience, the yacht and crew were brilliant!

Thank You!!!

Dear Julie and Chris,

Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation - it was the best ever and I smile every time I think of the wonderful week. I loved being on Felicia and will definitely do it again. You both made the experience unforgettable and were such great hosts.

I love some of the pictures you took and can't wait to see the others. I didn't take any but I know some of the other girls did.

I'll keep in touch. I'd rather be on Felicia than in Florida.
