More Amore´, a Robertson and Caine Leopard 62, is a lavishly appointed cruising yacht with a luxury layout. She offers 8 guests four beautifully-appointed, very spacious queen en-suite cabins and first-rate amenities; individual temperature controls, flat screen TV/DVD and personal heads, showers and vanity areas, ample storage and plenty of natural light. Each bed is furnished with luxury linens, Dreamfinity cooling gel and memory foam mattress toppers and pillows - perfection with a layer of paradise; cooling, restful and rejuvenating. On the bridge deck, the salon area has separate dining and lounging seating, and features a navigation station with complete electronics and remote‐controlled autopilot, plus a networked entertainment center with high quality stereo system. A cocktail bar is situated at the entrance of the salon area, so drinks can be served directly inside or out in the cockpit area. Exiting the salon, the huge cockpit provides a spacious guest entertainment area protected by a hardtop fly bridge. This unique feature opens up the cockpit area for alfresco dining and relaxing and enables direct walk‐through access to the wide aft swim platform, great for diving, snorkeling and access to the dinghy, which can also be used for water‐sports. Moving up, a staircase leads up to one of the 62's most unique features, the spacious fly bridge. For sun lovers the flybridge is the place to be, providing excellent visibility and spectacular panoramic views. A bimini over the flybridge covers a small cockpit area but the sunpads/lounge area aft is available for those who wish to soak up the Caribbean sun. There is also loads of sunning space on the foredeck where guests can relax on the trampolines or relax and recline in the bean bag seating. This yacht is truly first class and an exceptional value for a boat of her size and amenities.

Danny & Laura
Laura and Danny's passion for adventure is what brought them together. They first met in college on an ocean canoeing trip and have been pursuing their lifelong love of the water ever since. Both have lived on or around the ocean their whole lives. Their sailing adventures have taken them all over the western hemisphere from French Polynesia to the Sea of Cortez, the Puget Sound to the channel islands of California, and the Chesapeake Bay to the Caribbean. They share a passion for getting off the beaten path, finding the unexplored places, taking time to appreciate the natural beauty the Caribbean has to offer, traveling, and of course, sailing. Recently engaged, Laura and Danny have found that they are a perfect team both on charter and in life.
Sailing is not just a job for Captain Danny but a way of life. He started working and living on boats when he was in high school, paid his way through college sailing, and has been working on boats ever since. Look for him in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean franchise where he acted as an extra, professional crew, and liaison between the San Diego Maritime Museum and production staff. He is an avid outdoorsman and is ready for any sort of adventure that may come his way. His sailing experiences, active lifestyle, and love of the history and lore of any area will certainly keep you entertained and intrigued. Danny holds his USCG 100-ton Masters license and his STCW-95 credentials and also has a B.A. in History from Loyola University Maryland where he graduated Dean's List with two historical concentrations...read more
First Mate/Chef Laura loves to live a very active and enthusiastic lifestyle. Besides sailing, Laura has a strong passion for rock climbing, kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, yoga, and cooking. She admires her mother who also was a great cook and always had a knack for entertaining with the incredible meals she would prepare. Laura loves to use past favorite recipes from home as well as experiment with new recipes and creations. When preparing food, Laura is a perfectionist and strives to prepare flavorful dishes that tickle the taste buds. She has her STCW-95 certification as well as her B.A. in Digital Media and in her free time enjoys playing around with video editing or graphic design.
The 2015 season brought record breaking bookings to More Amore´ thanks to the amazing service provided by this outstanding crew team. Over and over again, guests raved that Danny and Laura exceeded every possible expectation they had about what a luxury Caribbean yacht charter could be. The summer of 2015 Danny and Laura made their partnership official - they were married in Annapolis, Md!

I wanted to comment that this was an extremely wonderful trip not only because of the beauty of the area, but because of the crew, Danny and Laura. I can’t imagine anyone being more professional, attentive, and pleasant to be around. They were simply outstanding in every way. They entertained us and met our every request from basically sunup until way past sundown, and seemed genuinely happy to be doing it. The food was beyond expectations, the service was spot on, and the boat was perfect for what we did. I would recommend this boat, but particularly this crew, to anyone that wanted to have a special vacation. By the second or third day, Danny and Laura, despite our age difference, seemed more like friends than crew. And I’ve never had friends treat me so well!
I can speak for all of us in saying it was spectacular. The comment "I don't know how it could have been any better" was made multiple times by all of us. Danny and Laura make an exceptional team and catered to our every need with enthusiasm. The trip truly exceeded our expectations.
The crew make a great team and undertook all activities with great enthusiasm. They had a good understanding of the islands, great snorkeling spots and timings of when to be there to avoid the crowds/day boats. The food and presentation exceeded our expectations. We were very impressed by the boat.

I can not brag on Danny and Laura enough. We feel soooo fortunate that these two were are crew for the week. It was so obvious that they genuinely wanted us to have a wonderful week and they did EVERYTHING in their power to make the week special for us. The weather was less that perfect during the first part of the week, but they helped us make the best of it...we all kind of took their lead and ignored the rain!! Every request we had they met. In addition, they were great about coming up with activities that they felt our group would enjoy. They knew that we had several triathletes in our group and they made a great effort to get us to areas where we could hike, run and swim.
More Amore actually exceeded my expectations. It was roomier than I was expecting and in good repair. Great places up top and in front to enjoy the scenery. The bedding was so comfortable that we all got the name of the bedding so we might purchase it for our own homes, LOL.
Captain Danny: we never felt of moment of trepidation about our safety. Danny was unbelievably competent. Twice in the middle of the night we had generator issues and Danny was up with a flashlight and tools to get us up and running again in short order. We LOVED hanging out with him up on the fly bridge because he was sooooo knowledgeable about the history of the area.for example, he didn't just take us to the wreck of the Rhone to snorkel, he told us the whole story of the wreck, how it happened and why...he knew all the pirate history from the area and told us great stories. He was also an encyclopedia of sailing information...it was SUCH a pleasure to hear him tell stories and to just see his pure love of sailing and the history of the islands.
Chef Laura: all I can say is that she is going to make a wonderful mother one day. We could not get over the fact that she was only 26 years old. Her chef skills were fantastic! We ate like kings and queens. But the thing that touched all of us so much was the absolutely beautiful Thanksgiving meal she put on the table for us. The girl made homemade gnocchi, she cooked a full turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mash potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce....it all came out of that tiny galley. We were in awe...and so touched by the love she put into that meal. It was so, so special. I mentioned that John's Bday was on the 25th and we woke up to a big Happy Birthday banner for John on his day. Laura made a special dessert for him that evening! We had a few food requests and they were all met too!
We just all fell in love with Danny and Laura...if we ever do this again, and they are still around, we will be searching them out again. They were simply outstanding.
~The Lossie Group
I cannot fully express how wonderful it was to spend time with these two fine young people. They seem to have a good grasp on what they want to do in the future. I do hope we can do another voyage with them.
Laura and Dan performed as well as any fine restaurant experience. Each meal was planned out very carefully, was aligned with our Preferences and was combined with either a good drink or compatible wine. Again the talent these two have together is unmatched. The food was fresh, perfectly prepared and followed by wonderful homemade deserts. Loved it.
This was the first time we had a bridge with a great lounging area, several bean bag chairs on the front. We had plenty of space to move around. There were 6 of us and that helps. All systems worked well, the AC when needed, lights, etc. No issues. Danny and Laura had a really good, thorough understanding of the boat.
The boat was beautiful, but Danny and Laura made it spectacular! We hated leaving the boat. ~The Travitz, Liana and Allsion Group
I cant express how wonderful these two young people Danny and Laura were and how they performed. They are well educated and seem to have a strong family upbringing, it is very refreshing.
Everything was over-the-top perfect. Every action was well thought out. But the one thing that brought me to tears of joy was when we were all viewing a full rainbow and Laura switched the playlist around so that we heardSomewhere over the rainbow. It was a joyous moment that I wont forget soon.
Danny and Laura made a great team and were exceptionally focused on making it a great week for all of us their smiles, positive attitudes and customer-service friendly approach was much appreciated. We highly recommend a sail with Danny and Laura on the More Amore!~The Goldstein and Barth Families
Danny and Laura are two of the most helpful and friendly people you could ever hope for in a crew. Prior to our boarding we were a bit concerned that their young age might make them a less than perfect fit for our 3 couples who are in their 50s and 60s. Our concern was put immediately to rest. They are both extremely intelligent and able to converse with you on a wide variety of topics. Without fail they were friendly, polite, mature, professional, intelligent, helpful, accommodating, and unobtrusive and simply the perfect personalities.
Danny and Laura seemed to anticipate our every need and before we realized it. They would regularly appear out of nowhere offering food, drink, or refreshments and ask us if there was anything we needed or would like to do. They would quickly disappear and reappear with whatever we asked for and do so with a smile. They could not have been more accommodating. Danny and Laura continually offered to keep us entertained with water sports, paddle boarding, fishing, snorkeling, diving, dining options, hiking beach activities, games on board with us or anything else we desired. It was a full time job keeping us happy and they did it without missing a beat.
We are 3 retired Coast Guard Officers with more than 70 years of service among us. We were all extremely impressed with the nautical skills of the crew. They were first rate sailors and knew the vessel and their jobs well. Their hospitality skills were equally impressive. Every single meal we had was perfect from the portion size, presentation and quality. We took several pictures we were so impressed. They never failed to accommodate anyones special requests and did so happily. The presentation of the meals was Picture PERFECT, but this entire vacation far exceeded our expectations, We would charter More Amore again. ~D. Sabra
All of us enjoyed the laid back approach the both of you have and your willingness to make each of us comfortable throughout the week. The meals were all delicious and well displayed by Laura and the map out of where and when we would hit each island as explained by Dan let us relax and let him do his job. This was our second trip on a chartered Cat in the BVI / USVI and we were shocked you could surpass our first experience 5 yrs ago but you did!!!!
St Paddy Day celebration, complete with a Corn Beef and Cabbage dinner on board, was a wee bit tipsy ( just as we wanted it to be), the private lobster dinner on Anegada was wonderful, and seeing hidden islands we had never seen before added to our trip. Days of resting and exchanging stories as we soaked in the sun during the day on the boat was what we all wanted. Nights of exploring island life and meeting people was fun.
Dan and Laura, I would most definitely recommend the two of you and your fantastic boat to ANYONE. When we wanted to relax, you found the best spot and when we wanted to party, you found that spot as well. Thanks for all of the service, smiles, stories, and education on the different islands. Also, thanks for a new drink........ The Pickle Back!
~Tom "AKA T C" Cassidy
Every single meal was restaurant-quality, served with a smile and customized to fit our family's individual needs. Not more than a few minutes went by without anyone asking me if I needed anything to eat or drink, and the fridge was always open to us to serve ourselves as well.
From a boating perspective, I always felt comfortable with Dan at the helm. He had complete knowledge of the vessel and the area to a point that I felt like he had been doing this for his entire life.
If you are considering chartering, NOT going with these two would be, quite frankly, a mistake. Not only did I have a wonderful time onboard, but left with what Id call two new friends.

Just a quick note to thank you for one of our familys best vacations ever. The boat was great, but what really made the trip was Danny and Laura. Those two were just beyond belief as to how great they were. Safety, hospitality, food were all outstanding. And we are fussy and are used to fine food, etc. They were great to be around and anticipated our every need. ~The Anastos Family
What a fantastic trip we had. From day one, Danny and Laura made our experience one of the best we could have received.They welcomed us immediately and made us feel like we were home. Nothing was off limits and our every desire was met with a smile and a can do attitude.
Danny is extremely knowledgeable about the area and interrupted our hopes and desires with razor precision. We had the best trip we could have hoped for with his insights and willingness to deliver on our wishes.
Laura OMG is an incredible chef and host. We could not have asked for more.
Together they made an incredible couple and gave us a lifetime of memories. Thank you! C and K
