Catamaran Karizma Overview

Karizma is a comfortable yacht with a great deal of headroom throughout. The yacht features four guest en-suite cabins and is most suitable for groups of up to 8 passengers. Two of the double cabins do have an extra kiddy berth that works if two or three children (including one small child) would like to share a cabin.

Captain Marcus has 7 years sailing the Virgin Islands and has made a point of finding as many hidden coves and secret anchorages to help you make the most of your charter. Risa is a talented and creative chef. Together they make a great crew for Karizma and are ready to show your group a great time sailing the Virgin Islands.

Meet the Crew

Hylton Wessels

Meet the crew of KARIZMA, skipper Hylton and first mate/chef Amy.

After spending just a few minutes with Hylton and Amy you will pick up on their passion for the ocean. Growing up on the East Coast of South Africa meant their childhoods were both full of outdoor adventures, with family and friends, along the coastline. Hylton and Amy have just come from the South Pacific where they have spent the last 3 years running Whale Swimming, SCUBA diving, Line Fishing and Spearfishing charters for resorts and companies in Tonga.

Living in the remote islands has taught them a lot about enjoying and appreciating the simple things in life. Their stress-free lifestyle is contagious and something we all deserve to experience, especially on a Caribbean vacation. They are most happy when they have the opportunity to share these beautiful waters with their guests and they go to great depths to unveil treasures that many others would never see.

Amy studied Marine Biology in South Africa and went on to do her honors. She is very confident in the water and will always be willing to take guests out for a snorkel to find some interesting creatures or critters to observe. She loves to share any knowledge to inquisitive minds, no matter how young or old. Her patience and bubbly personality make her an instant hit, especially with children. ..read more

Hylton has covered a few passages in his sailing career and hopes to own a yacht one day. He loves spearfishing and free-diving and would be willing to give anyone interested some tips on free-diving. His charisma and enthusiasm make him a perfect fit on this yacht and will surely make all on board feel at home.

Amy and Hylton both enjoy spending time in the kitchen. They have picked up recipes from the South Pacific and South Africa that they will share with you during your stay.

The crew cannot wait to have you on board. There will be many stories told and laughs had, but most of all they cannot wait to share our beautiful oceans with you.

Reviews for Karizma with previous crew:

Marcus and Risa were the best crew we could have imagined! They made our stay very special. This vacation will definitely stay in our mind!

Karizma was comfortable, clean and ventilated: all of it, yes! Marcus & Risa cleaned up during the week, for example when we were all snorkeling in the water, by the time we came back to the boat everything was cleaned up. During the sailing we stayed at the front in the morning / evening more in the back of the yacht. Every location was really nice. In addition we liked the fact that every bedroom had its own bathroom.

We enjoyed every meal prepared by Risa! She is very professional and was a brilliant cook! We were always looking forward to breakfast / lunch / dinner time. Risa always asked if there is something somebody doesn't like and customized the dishes, it was great!

Marcus & Risa included us in the planning of the route and islands we want to go according to our preferences (more party vs more quiet). They recommended us to go up to Anegada (which we did) and it was actually our favorite island!

John, it was great to have you as a fast responding partner at any time for all kinds of questions! Thanks a lot!

Just want to highlight once again that Marcus & Risa did an incredible job. Marcus was always open minded in some action (riding the hot dog, dive board) and he sailed us every day in a great mood to great places! Risa cooked everyday awesome dishes, helped Markus, told us the best places. They were both a great company! We would love to spend another vacation with them!
