Catamaran Skimmer Overview

Skimmer is engineered for transoceanic performance and top speed without sacrifice to luxurious accommodations and sumptuous living spaces.

This 74ft Open Ocean Performance Cruising Catamaran is as beautiful as she is functional. The low profile flybridge design with racing stripe band of windows bisecting each hull is sleek and dynamic. The yacht has a tall rig, a large sail area, and a deep keel and rudder for unparalleled performance. Skimmer is remarkably spacious, a masterfully designed, open-plan home that boasts 360-degree water views.

Step aboard Skimmer’s beamy aft deck cockpit where there's plenty of space for your entire party to lounge comfortably. Banquette seating with adjustable tables under protective shade make this a popular place to dine or relax.

A double-wide door opens the interior galley and saloon to the outdoors, expanding the social space for near seamless open circulation and excellent fresh air flow. The main saloon has a contemporary décor of rich woods with upholstery in gentle hues that create a pleasingly organic ambiance. L-shaped sofa seating with additional modular chairs keeps guests comfortably at the large dining table. White paneling is crisp and bright, and a generous surround of windows infuses the area with daylight.

Opposite the dining area is the galley bar with four built-in stools. The professional galley is a chef's delight, with five-burner stove, dual sinks, expansive counter space, and loads of storage and refrigeration.

Skimmer accommodates eight charter guests in four en-suite cabins. Each guest cabin includes fine linens and soft goods, dual reading lights, thoughtful amenities and sufficient storage for extended voyages. The professional crew of four have separate quarters.

The yacht has many notable features that make her an ideal option for first time sailors and families with children. At the bow, two bench seats head up the two spacious trampolines each with a raised side, which supports anyone seated either on deck or at the trampoline. This intelligent design provides bow seating common to motor yachts but unusual in a sailing catamaran. The best of both worlds. Raised gunwales augment safety on deck. The most popular spot aboard Skimmer is the magnificent flybridge. There is plenty of space for a crowd and the views are spectacular.

Step aboard Skimmer for the luxury Caribbean yacht vacation of a lifetime!

Meet the Crew

Peter & Colleen Leube

Captain & Chef: New Crew to be announced soon!

First Mate: DAVID SHILTON

David Shilton, affectionately called “Naval” by his friends, grew up in the coastal town of Knysna, South Africa, in the district aptly named Eden. With spectacularly beautiful and consistently perfect weather, conditions are ideal for year around boating and watersports activities. Naval started sailing as a schoolboy, competitive dinghy sailing, canoeing, and excelling at rugby. The year the school Principal wrote a report that stated “David is the backbone of the rugby team” was one of his proudest moments.

However, Naval’s acknowledgement as a team anchor was just one of many accolades. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, he won various men’s single-handed sailing championships. This perfect candidate for the Navy joined up after finishing school, studied seamanship and trained as a diver. He represented the Navy in two world championships and sailed the Cape to Rio Race 2011 as the Watch Captain for the navy yacht.

Naval went on to work as a commercial diver, a skipper, a guide, and a captain on passenger and charter yachts. He completed numerous ocean crossings and has extensive experience in worldwide racing. When he is not at the helm in a professional capacity he is usually found out in his own boat, fishing, skiing, diving, tubing, or just cruising around. He is elated to be part of the crew aboard SKIMMER and sums up, “I have always loved boats. Sailing as a sport has always been my passion. Yachting as a career just came naturally.”

11-19 April, 2017 ~ BVI ~ Unforgettable!
This trip absolutely surpassed all of my expectations! I told Joe that my new favorite way to travel is by catamaran! I think one of my favorite aspects of the whole trip was the time spent getting to each new port, being tossed around on the trampoline with my kids as we hit each swell, and laughing and screaming until our bellies hurt! It was such a blessing for me as a mom to watch my whole family enjoy God's incredible creation together and make memories that we will surely talk about for years to come! When it was time to end the trip and disembark, I felt a palpable sadness and it was because in that short but beautiful time, I became so fond of Peter, Colleen and David. Their hospitality and joie de vivre made this trip unforgettable. Honestly, I do not think that I could express with words the gratitude I feel for their gift to us. My children collectively, were only able to be cheered up once I promised them that we would come back soon to see Peter, Colleen and David and have another adventure on the cat! Thank you Patty, for all that you did to make this trip happen in the impeccable manner that it did!! I can’t wait to plan our next trip!

11-19 April, 2017 ~ BVI - Fantastic!!
The trip was amazing - sorry to have to come home!

The crew was fantastic. It was a general concern to be stuck on a boat with people we didn't know, but Peter, Colleen and David were all amazing! They were fun to hang out with but totally unobtrusive. The food was top notch, especially considering it must be tough to get 10 days worth of provisions. Colleen was an amazing chef. Her home made breads were such a nice surprise.

On a side note, the boat way surpassed our expectations from the brochure. The boat is simple, classic but beautiful. Thanks for setting this up, we couldn't be happier!

Both Peter and Colleen provided excellent very attentive service. They work very well as a team and were great hosts. Colleen is a superior chef. The quantity, quality and presentation were superior. Both are excellent very experienced sailors willing to accommodate any requests. Peter is an excellent diver and was very knowledgeable about all the sites. Overall I would highly rate this crew.

2014 Awesome BVI\'s
Thank you so much. It was awesome! The girls and I missed Colleens' cooking this week already. The meals were amazing . Presentation, taste, variety, everything was perfect! Meals were our topic of discussion every day. Peter was great too. Diving was wonderful. Great sites and really cool commentary from Peter who is a very well read historian . We couldn't have been with two more gracious hosts. I have already recommended this boat to many people. It was the best trip as a family I have ever taken!!
Thank you so much , Wade

June 10-17, 2014 ~ Virgin Islands ~ Simply Amazing!
Peter and Collen were fantastic in all respects. We were treated like royalty! The yacht was comfortable and clean. It was like 24 hour housekeeping despite my teenagers efforts to live like a dorm room. Every meal was an culinary adventure. Collen managed to satisfy my sons somewhat picky eating, plus inviting him to try new dishes , which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Peter was great on the grill too. Some of the finest food and exquisite presentations that one could imagine on a boat. The sites were wonderful. The snorkeling and diving was great.My family had a great time. Peter and Collen treated us like family, very special family ! The boat was in top notch shape and Peter is a wonderful Captain and sailor. It was very comfortable , relaxing yet adventurous. Peter can pour a nice cocktail regardless of the type of request (and there were many!). Collen is simply an amazing chef. The islands were beautiful and our every wish was fulfilled. I would definitely sail with these two wonderful people again. Thanks for the memories!

May 1-8, 2014 ~Virgin Islands ~ Best Holiday Ever!
Peter and Colleen were wonderful in every way. Their kindness, caring, good nature, humor, and friendship made our sailing experience truly the "best holiday" ever! All accommodations were more than we had imagined. The yacht was not only comfortable and spotless, it provided spaces for group gatherings, quiet moments, and relaxation. It was an amazing "home away from home"! We loved the hatches which provided a nightly view to the sky, as well as good ventilation.

The food was one of the many "best things" about our trip. Colleen is an expert chef who prepared everything with our wishes in mind. We felt as if we were in a 5 star restaurant every day. The variety, flavors, and lightness of the food, as well as the beautiful presentation made us exclaim in "awe" each day!

This was our first experience in the islands and Peter and Colleen took us to beautiful snorkeling areas, quiet places for swimming and island hiking, as well as their knowledge of the area provided us with the history and background of each area. We really loved it all!

Peter and Colleen were wonderful in every way. We loved our time with them and count them among our many friends. Their expertise as "Yacht hosts", chefs, and personal attendants made this a wonderful experience in every way. We all felt sad as we departed the Madiba and hope to return in the future. We have already recommended the trip to several friends and have encouraged them to request sailing with Peter and Colleen on the Madiba. Thank you for providing an "Adventure in Paradise" for us!
