Designed as a fast, luxurious, roomy charter yacht, Best Revenge 5's state-of-the-art design by Alliaura Privilege offers opulent interior space. Visually nothing is lost, her beautiful lines and flat, uncluttered decks complete the fine proportions.
A sailing vacation aboard Best Revenge 5 is the ultimate way to enjoy and experience the natural beauty of the Caribbean. She has more than enough deck space for four couples either to lounge comfortably together or find private spaces, and two large trampolines on the bow (with their own stereo speakers), which are perfect for soaking up the sun or reading a book in the shade of her sails.
The cockpit is truly the heart of this beautiful yacht, with surround sound audio, two teak tables, wide, comfortable seating, plenty of shade provided by the customized, oversized protective hard bimini, and full night-time high and low lighting.
Best Revenge 5 offers the best of the charter yacht world - the spaciousness and luxury of a fine poweryacht with the speed and stability of an ocean-cruising catamaran.
When combined with one of the most favored crews in the islands, fine dining and a wide range of water toys, you and your fellow guests will be guaranteed a spectacular vacation.

We enjoyed sailing around and exploring St. Maarten, Anguilla and St Barts. This charter area offered more sailing opportunities than the BVI. The BVI was a better destination for iconic beach bars, easier hiking, and clearer snorkeling.
Nick & Lucy are awesome crew and frequently knew what we wanted before we even had a clue. I love them both.
Best Revenge 5 is very comfortable, well maintained, and spotless. My favorite things about the yacht are warm fresh water for rinsing off after swimming, comfortable beds, individual AC thermostats in cabins, robust shower in cabin, extensive music selection, and crew's attention to detail.
Lucy exceeded our expectations once again. She is a very talented and creative chef with a passion for food preparation & presentation. She went the extra mile to accommodate our individual preferences and dietary needs.
Sailing Directions service was prompt and efficient. Keep up the good work.

Nick and Lucy were incredible! Could not ask for better captain and chef; their services and personalities were 5 Star excellent! When our trip was over it was extremely hard saying our goodbye's; it felt like we were leaving family. We are already planning our trip for next year with them.
Loved the boat; impeccably clean, comfortable and perfect.
Food was absolutely incredible!! From the presentation to the menu to the cooking style; it was all excellent. Lucy did a fabulous job in creating menus that fit everyone's food palate. Very creative and tasty!!
Loved the itinerary and area. Nick went above and beyond sharing so much island information and history. He was the perfect tour guide as well, taking us to places that we would never have gone if it wasn't for him leading us.
Sailing Direction's service was helpful and accurate in all aspects of the trip.
Our charter vacation experience was an incredible and fabulous experience overall. It could not have been any better!! (Except maybe a little longer as no one was ready to leave). With Nick, Lucy and Best Revenge you have a home run charter experience!!
Neil K, aboard Catamaran Best Revenge 5 sailing the British Virgin Islands
Nick and Lucy were lovely and attended to every possible need or want. They somehow managed to know what we wanted without us knowing it or having to ask. They were fun to hang out with too. We enjoyed their company and became very attached to them. It was hard to say goodbye.
Was Best Revenge 5 is a beautiful boat. Nick and Lucy clearly care about it and are taking good care of it.
The food was fantastic. We cannot rave enough. Lucy is an excellent chef. It was so good that we couldn't stop eating.
We visited some familiar places and some new ones. Nick was great about escorting us on excursions and showing us things we would not have known to see/do on our own.
Perfectly satisfied. Would use Sailing Directions again. It was wonderful. We will cherish the memories. Thank you!

We cannot say enough exceptional things about Nick & Lucy. From the first greeting they were extremely professional, but also very welcoming and fun to be around. They both were quick to figure out our needs, and were incredibly attentive & accommodating. The level of service was beyond anything we had ever experienced. They took great pride in making sure we were having a great time and we, quite honestly, loved being around them. While always making sure to tend to our needs, they also gave us personal space & according to our entire family, they are truly the reason why our trip was so memorable. Without a doubt, we ever do this again, it will be with Nick & Lucy. An amazing team! Five star crew!!
Being boaters ourselves, we can attest to the fact that Best Revenge 5 is a beautiful catamaran in every way! It was incredibly clean, well ventilated and extremely comfortable. The cabins were very well appointed and beautifully done. Beds are comfy (and are sized as stated!), plenty of storage and hanging space and bathrooms spacious (by boat standards) and well-appointed with all the necessities of the trip. The common areas are very well designed and spacious. Little extras all around the boat that made it comfortable for a group - we didn't feel like we were sitting on top of each other.
On top of being well designed and spacious, she was beautifully decorated! A true WOW! Our family felt incredibly lucky to be able to enjoy such a beautiful yacht. Again 5 stars to an amazing catamaran!
WOW!! There are not enough adjectives to describe the high level & exceptional quality of the food served. It was a culinary feast each & every meal! (Including the snacks!). Incredibly well prepared, well-balanced meals and catered to our individual food preferences. The presentation was top-notch and their attentive service during our meal was more than you could ask for. Little things like different table decor each meal, nice dinnerware just added to the ambiance. It was consistently spectacular every meal - we were all trying to figure out our favorite but they all ended up being our favorite! :-) Lucy is a Five Star chef!
We can't forget about the drink selections either. Nick was great at pairing wine selections for our meals. We got to enjoy his native South African wines which we really enjoyed as we had traveled there - such a personal touch. His skills making specialty drinks was second to none as well.. a real treat! Our entire family looked forward to his drink of the day, always fun, always tasty!
Our itinerary fit our family perfectly! It was adventurous, unique, and most importantly, fun! We were treated to some amazing land treks, sea adventures and incredibly beautiful spots. We could not have asked for more - we were all extremely happy with our adventure!
John, you were great to work with! It was first-class service in every respect. Prompt answers to questions, helpful insight in selecting the proper catamaran and crew for our trip, and pre and post follow ups. We would highly recommend Sailing Directions and if our future needs take us back to another sailing adventure, you will be our first contact!
BR5 & our crew were exceptional! First class, five star all the way! We can tell you without a doubt, that this surpassed our high expectations. Our crew was very proud to be on the BR5 and it showed in every aspect of our trip - from their professionalism, to accommodating our family in every possible way. She's a well appointed fun catamaran - lots of good toys to play with on board as well, which was a perfect fit for our active family!
Lori H, aboard Catamaran Best Revenge 5 sailing the British Virgin Islands
Nick and Lucy are top notch professionals. They are very friendly, engaging, and very accommodating. Nick was an excellent captain who is a competent sailor, very knowledgeable about boating and maintenance, marine life, local history and folklore. He escorted us in the water and on land, always looking out for our safety.
Best Revenge 5 is a beautiful, well maintained and very clean vessel. There was plenty of hot water on board and AC worked well with individual thermostats in each stateroom. Bed linens were also nice.
Food on board was fabulous. Although not formally trained as a chef, Lucy's culinary skills were off the chart. Her passion for cooking was evident in menu selection, food preparation and presentation, and all the care she took to accommodate our food preferences. She prepared three fabulous meals each day, and varied the menu throughout the week. Her cooking skills and desire to please the guests make her a true asset.
With constant consideration of prevailing winds and sea conditions, Nick planned out an excellent itinerary and offered us options all along the way.
Sailing Directions was always quick to reply to emails and answered all of my questions in a timely manner.
Our gal pal charter aboard BR5 in the BVI far exceeded our expectations.
Susan V, aboard Catamaran Best Revenge 5 sailing the British Virgin Islands
Everything was excellent. The food was better than expectations, even though our expectations were high. We highly recommend Best Revenge 5 especially if young children are part of your group. Both Nick and Lucy like children and look after them very well.
Paul L, aboard Catamaran Best Revenge 5 sailing the British Virgin Islands
We loved our BR5 charter with Nick and Lucy! Best trip, exceeded our expectations.
Lucy's food presentation was phenomenal. We were unsure what it be like as she did not have culinary training at a culinary school. After our first day of meals there was great expectation for the next meal. Each meal was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. We joked that we wanted Lucy to come home with us. What is really amazing is that she was able to prepare such delicious and beautiful dishes in the galley which is probably one sixth the size of my kitchen.
We are particular about our food and Lucy's culinary skills dazzled us. My mouth is watering just thinking about the meals we had while on BR5!
We had a FABULOUS time on Best Revenge 5 with the most amazing crew ever! We adored Nick and Lucy.

British Virgin Islands
The sailing Capital of the Caribbean. Fly into Beef Island Airport, Tortola where one of our staff will meet you for the scenic coastal drive to our base at the Nanny Cay Marina.
Best Revenge 5 awaits you at our base in Nanny Cay Marina. You will be greeted upon arrival by your crew and welcomed aboard with a refreshing cocktail. After being shown to your cabin and introduced to your new home, take a little time to get settled in. Enjoy dinner aboard and while your yacht remains in harbor for the evening, you can taxi into Tortola's capital, Roadtown, or over to West End to sample some Pussers rum, the most famous drink in the Caribbean.
Cruising Day 1:
After a scrumptious breakfast, a short sail takes you to the Indians for a delightful snorkel or scuba dive. Following a lunch stop at Peter Island, it is time to head up the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Salt Island. Here you can dive or snorkel the Wreck of the Rhone, famous for its part in the movie, 'The Deep', and acclaimed as the best wreck dive in the Caribbean. Dinner will be served on board at Peter Island.
Cruising Day 2:
The most recognized place in the BVI's is The Baths, a unique formation of large boulders, littering the beach along the southern tip of Virgin Gorda. You can choose to explore the many caverns and grottos either by foot or by snorkel. In the afternoon we will sail to The North Sound, the BVI's favorite playground. The protected waters lend themselves to every water sport imaginable, windsurfing, water-skiing, kayaking or simply a game of volleyball on the beach.
Cruising Day 3:
After breakfast, we will venture out into Eustatia Sound, where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean. The water is crystal clear and teaming with tropical fish and reef life just waiting for you to explore. Rendezvous at the Bitter End for a smooth rum punch and relax to the sounds of the Caribbean steel drum band. Lunch is served on onboard with a beach barbecue for dinner.
Cruising Day 4:
Following breakfast, partake in an adventurous sail to Anegada, a flat coral atoll completely surrounded by reef. Many ships have been lost off the reef, providing an underwater paradise for scuba divers and snorkellers alike. Anegada is surrounded by a mile of the most glorious beaches and renowned for the best-grilled lobster in the Caribbean. Lunch will be served on board and guests usually take dinner ashore at one of the restaurants along the beaches.
Cruising Day 5:
Sail to Marina Cay, with its brightly colored villas and tropical flowers, undoubtedly the most spectacular cay in the BVI's. The diving at Diamond Reef is some of the best to be found anywhere. Spend a relaxing day around the cay or lazing around the boat.
Cruising Day 6:
Haul up the spinnaker and sail for Jost Van Dyke, the beach bar capital of the islands. We will drop the anchor at Sandy Cay for lunch and kayak ashore to explore the island. Don't forget to enjoy a frozen drink at Foxy's. After lunch we set sail back to Tortola towards Nanny Cay. As it is the last evening guests dine ashore at one of the many restaurants in Tortola, with a recommendation to try Quito's, with a great local band every evening.
After breakfast aboard, it is time to pack up all your belongings and memories. Your crew will arrange transport back to the airport before exchanging fond farewells.
Canouan is quite literally the gateway to the Grenadines, and the Grenadines are regarded by most as the 'Jewels of the Caribbean'. No Cruise ships or even Taxis, the only transportation is reserved for private yachts like ours. The first afternoon and evening you will enjoy the facilities and dine ashore at the Tamarind Bay Resort.
Cruising Day 1 & 2:
Over a full breakfast, the guests and crew have a tough decision to make - Do we spend the first night in Mustique or head straight down to the Grenadines! A decision that unfortunately will depend on the sea conditions, as sailing North to Mustique can be quite rough. In the opposite direction and just over a one hour sail is paradise - the Tobago Cays.
Here will be sailing on very calm seas in clear blue waters the color of your swimming pool. Very often pods of dolphin will come alongside and play in our wake. Snorkeling and Diving on the shallow live coral reefs with their vast diversity of marine life is an experience second to none. Depending on which route we take, we will spend two days and one night in the midst of these strikingly beautiful atolls.
Cruising Day 3:
Early afternoon cruise to Union Island where we will go alongside the dock for the night. As the island name suggests, this is the crossroads for Yachts cruising the Grenadines with quite a bustling local marina community. After cocktails and dinner on board we walk over to the bar at the Bougainvillea restaurant for more cocktails and entertainment.
Cruising Day 4:
Palm Island, an exclusive private island resort is a short hop across the channel. We will stop here for a walk around this beautiful palm fringed island and a swim in the turquoise waters before sailing on to Mopion, a tiny spit of white sand in the middle of nowhere. We sail on to another favorite spot, the private island resort of Petit Saint Vincent. Dinner on board in the very calm anchorage and then another shore excursion for those that want to test their karaoke.
Cruising Day 5:
Today takes you to the primitive fishing bay of Chatham on the uninhabited west side of Union Island. Snorkeling amongst the Pelicans diving to catch their prey is an unforgettable experience. Towering cliffs that plunge into the sea either side of a long white beach make this the perfect spot to take a cooler to the beach and wonder if this is what Paradise looks like.
Cruising Day 6:
Mayreau Island lies on the South Western extreme of the Tobago Cays. Here, tucked away, on its western side is a unique slender spit of land dividing the rugged windward side from the calms of the leeward. On the Leeward side is a stunningly gorgeous long white beach with a stone beach bar, you are now in Salt Whistle Bay. Venture over the top of the island to visit the little fishing village with its old Chapel and school. After lunch, your Captain and Hostess will prepare a floating bar with exotic cocktails. Sip and swim! Afternoon departure back to Canouan and dinner ashore at The Tamarind Yacht Club.
Day 7, Departure Day:
After breakfast, sadly your adventure comes to an end, but not for long. You will already have made plans for your next venture!
