Quest is a 57′ Simonis classic catamaran. She’s a smooth sailing yacht, a spacious live aboard, and an adventure waiting to happen. She’s both the journey & the destination.
Quest features four double en-suite guest cabins. A/C is available throughout for guest’s comfort. After many years of offering charters for up to 8 passengers, Quest is now a 6 guest yacht. This creates a more comfortable, attentive and specialized experience for all aboard. It also allows the crew to occupy a full stateroom while leaving extra crew quarters for add-ons like a private masseuse or dive instructor.
The yacht has both indoor and outdoor dining seating, large nets in the forward bow for lounging about and enjoying the sea spray. The stern provides a fully equipped dive deck / swim platform, also great space for yoga or sunbathing.

Chris & Nikki
Some people are just meant to live on or by the sea. There is an inner yearning that draws them there and that's just how this partnership came together. Both grew up in the north east of the US and committed themselves to "responsible" careers for much of their early adult lives. Eventually, each answered the calling of the tropics with a decision to move to the Virgin Islands. There they finally met, joined forces, and decided to pledge the their lives to exploring the Caribbean, and sharing their happiness and zest-for-life with travelers from around the world.
Captain Chris was raised in upstate New York but spent his summers in St. Thomas living aboard his dad's sailboat and exploring the islands. He broke his first sailing record at the age of 8 and never looked back. While sailing through the channel you'll often see Chris point to the summit of some remote island and proclaim "I peaked that" and he did!. BAREFOOT.
Chris has spent the last 10 years living and working in the US and British Islands, on and off boats. He has chosen endeavors that impact the health and sustainability of our environment - installing alternate power sources in the Virgin Islands where resources are especially precious; and co-founding the Caribbean Lionfish Safari group in an effort to protect the reef from invasive species. His love and connection to the Islands comes though on every charter; guests know they are experiencing something very special aboard QUEST...read more
Nikki was a revered nutritionist, yoga instructor and wellness coach prior to joining QUEST. Her passion for cooking combined with her nutrition background brings about a range of cuisine from sinful to heavenly. As the Chef aboard QUEST, Nikki designs charter specific menus that will make your mouth water. She believes great meals come from exceptional ingredients, time honored techniques, as well as experimentation with the freshest local foods and seasonal fare. Raised in a very Italian, food-loving family, her most cherished memories are of sharing time with loved ones around the dinner table. She brings that same warmth and camaraderie to every meal.
LuLu the cat is the ships mascot and normally doesn't venture out of the crew cabin while on charter.

This trip has been absolutely amazing. Chris and Nikki are phenomenal! Everything was done to perfection. Can't say enough good things about our experience.
Chris and Nikki were amazing! We truly enjoyed our time spent with them. Their (Chris, Nikki & Lulu) presence and attention to detail made the trip perfect.
Quest was comfortable and well maintained. We really enjoyed the trampolines and the U-shaped couch in the aft. Many naps were enjoyed on both.
Nikki's food creations were beyond our expectations. We were never hungry. Her love for cooking was evident in her dish presentations and the deliciousness of the food.
The itinerary was perfect! We had ample time in each location. Chris was always willing to take us to shore to explore the local culture.
This was the best vacation we have ever had.
