Catamaran Majestic Spirit Overview

Welcome aboard Majestic Spirit, a 53ft Royal Cape crewed catamaran accommodating up to 8 guests and available for crewed charters in the Virgin Islands and greater Caribbean.

After sailing and or diving in the calm waters of the British or US Virgin Islands and exploring the history of pirates past, you will want to return again and again. A charter vacation on Majestic Spirit is ideal for couples, families, small groups, divers or even business wanting to do team building. The weather is warm, the water is crystal clear, the hospitality is friendly, the Rum drinks are oh so tasty and the memories will last forever.

Majestic Spirit has been cleverly designed, maximizing every inch of space to ensure that you are always comfortable whilst on charter. Your Captain and "Admiral" aboard Majestic Spirit work to extremely high standards, their experience is vast and they perform all tasks with skill and professionalism. Having a SSI Dive Master on board only adds to the fun! Once aboard you'll find an enthusiastic team which will make you feel totally at home, with sounds of laughter and much more that will keep you entertained.

Whether it's eating, drinking, diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, wake boarding, or simply soaking up the Virgin Island sunshine with a chilled drink of your choice, whilst listening to good sounds, your hosts will make sure that you have the very best and most memorable Caribbean holiday ever! We tailor your vacation to your specific requirements, whether it's a honeymoon, birthday, anniversary or just a good excuse to have a great time with friends or family.

Why you should book Majestic Spirit!

Head room - this catamaran has loads of it. Also, the yacht is a registered SSI Dive Center with all you need to become a certified diver.

Why you might consider other Yachts?

Reviews for Majestic Spirit with Dave & Desiree Bean:

Thanks so much for a delightful trip! It was a wonderful family vacation. The food was truly amazing and the Majestic Spirit is a terrific boat. Thank you SO much for making it a memorable vacation!

Kelly S, aboard Catamaran Majestic Spirit sailing the British Virgin Islands

Additional reviews:

Dear Dave, Desiree & Taniell (i.e. DDT)
Where to start? I guess at the beginning!

First impression. Taniell picking up our luggage! WOW! Never seen such a captain's companion. This was followed by the first Captain not in uniform. WOW again! A hands on captain who is expert at sea and in the toilet tubing. Followed by the master piece: Desiree, or in short "Des", who used a magical wand to bring not just food on the table, but turn it every day into a masterpiece of taste. At the same time, cabins looked like new every day.

These are all important, but the most important aspect remains chemistry. That might apply to the evening cocktails, but more importantly to the human aspect. DDT (Dave, Desiree & Taniell) were a great lynch pin to our Belgian family of 8. Jokes, wisdom, life's lessons and practical advice from South Africa blended without difficulty with the Flemish way of thinking, except that we were singing louder than DDT.

In short, these have been a fabulous 6 days and nights. Great memories and most importantly, great new connections and friendship. We are happy to have plenty of pictures of our time with Sir Richard Branson and his (2) women.

Unless you sell the boat to others, you may see us back for more. If you would sell your boat, don't do it to a German captain of course.

I will now shut up with one wish:

I hope you enjoyed our presence as much as we enjoyed yours. Enjoy your days in paradise and never forget to put on your sunscreen.

Love, Hugs and Kisses (You may each take which one you like most)

We look forward to crossing paths again for another great sailing adventure.

We had a wonderful week of laughing!!!
It was so great to see you both again!!

This was a long overdue trip and as anticipated, we had a wonderful week of laughing, catching up with friends and food that will take me weeks to work off.

I'm glad that you all seem to continue to enjoy the touring and should you decide to travel west (Panama, Belize) we'll eagerly be waiting.

You're such great people and glad we got to experience the Grenadines with you.

Amazing Adventures on and in the Water!
It is hard to believe our week of amazing adventures on and in the water, with our favorite Captain & Admilral has come to an end.

We had a fantastic time and have gained several pounds!!

We will return with many stories. The good ones - lobster dinners, swimming with turtles we thank you for. The other stories - (fish jumping into boat and any other issues) - we blame Dan.

Take care Des & Dave, safe happy sailing. Hope to see you again! (Soon)

Cathie & Jim Abernethy

Incredible Christmas Vacation 2016
Dave & Desiree
Wow! How to put this incredible Christmas vacation into words on paper seems very unjust.
We had the best family time in the BVI and you two were the main reason why. The water, the weather, snorkeling, wake boarding, aqua fin and of course the FOOD. Everything was of the absolute Best! But having two new incredible people to call our friends was the best Christmas gift!
Thank you so much, we can't wait to come back!
Love Paul & Dena

Dave & Desiree
Thank you so much for the most amazing trip in the BVI! This was by far the best Christmas trip ever! We had so much fun wake boarding, snorkeling, using the aquanaut, eating and laughing with you guys.
We are so thankful to call you friends and can't wait to come back aboard the wonderful Majestic Spirit!
Love Maddy (Queen Conch), Makenzie (Princess Conch), Tyler

Love you guys!!
Our only friends are Pirates

Dear Dave & Des.

What an Amazing Adventure this was for us!


Each day out-doing itself - from the moment we arrived on your lovely Majestic Spirit we felt your and Des' hospitality & true love of what you do.

Des, your food was delicious! So much attention to detail, so beautifully prepared. Just when we thought it could not get any better - you'd go into your kitchen and prove us wrong!

7 Days of amazing creations have left me a little envious of your culinary skills and I fear, more than a little heavier!!

Captain Dave, my cheeks still hurt from laughing so much!

Thank you for navigating us through those rocky seas that 2nd day - thank you for sailing us directly into the sunset (to make up for the rough seas the day before, haha) the 3rd day - thank you for taling us to swim with the turtles and exploring the reef.

Dave & Des, thank you both for the use of your home and your many talents that made our trip with you the "trip of a lifetime". What a shock it's going to be when I'm sitting at my breakfast table tomorrow (in 10 deg F weather) and I have to make my own food!! HAHA - I promise you it won't be nearly as good as Des'.

Until next time our dear friends...

See you soon!

Much love

Mike & Michelle Adams

PS: Thank you Des for letting me use your mask! And a special thank you to you both for the dance party you threw! WooHoo!! What Fun!

Dear Dave and Des

I would like to thank you for a great family vacation and making our 20 year anniversary something special.

Your magic touch and Majestic Spirit kept all of our kids happy and entertained (quite a feat). They will remember this trip for many things, the most of which would be first time wakeboarding for two of them and snorkeling they will never forget.

Your stories of the islands and how you came to be here were great to learn and we thank you for sharing your home with us.

Best wishes and happy sailing

Dear Desiree & Dave
Well, if this is really a "complaints book", then I will end right here!
Great trips are comprised by many things - venue, activities, food + whatever + so forth. But as you reflect back often what you remember most is the company you kept. Your authentic selves have the great ability to make most anyone feel at home. I suppose, as I know we certainly did!
Many thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us! Des - your cooking is award winning + Dave - your attentiveness to the ship puts all at ease - even Jim!!
Thank you both for the wonderful SCUBA!!

Thank you for the most amazing vacation. The food and destinations were incredible, but truly the best part was the friendships we developed with yall along the way. Nothing could beat Dave's stories with Des's frequent interruptions. You guys are amazing.
We had the best time and look forward to doing it again very soon.

We had an absolutely amazing time.Dave is an extremely competent boater and Ive never tasted better food than what Desiree provided. When we were initially scouting for boats, what was important to our group was that we had sufficient outdoor leisure space. Majestic Spirit definitely fit the bill. I would highly recommend Majestic Spirit crewed/owned by Dave & Desiree.

Thank you soooo much for such a fantastic week on Majestic Spirit!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the BVI and we know it wouldn't have been as fun + special if we hadn't lucked out to choose your yacht!
The food was absolutely 5-Star all-the-way (Thank you Des!) and we are from Chicago - so we know GOOD food!! :)
The scuba and snorkelling were so much fun for Craig + Brock + Meredith. Dave's scuba skills / instruction + finding awesome scuba spots was bar none! Brock will never forget seeing the rare found Nurse Shark on his last dive of the trip with you Dave! Definitely a highlight.
We really want to thank you not only for a wonderful trip, but for going out of your way to go above + beyond each + every day (especially when you had to drive the boat all night long to get us to a hospital!) You guys are the BEST!!
Till next time

WOW! Vacation of a lifetime! Great celebration of my birthday and graduating two kids. We've been to the USVI and BVI's before, but this was the best and most memorable.
Dave's humour and stories kept us entertained the entire trip and Dez's meals will have us all shopping for new wardrobes after our return home.
Look forward to returning!
Happy Sailing

Dave & Desiree
Thank you for a great week upon Majestic Spirit.
Our family relaxed more on this vacation that any other.
The spots we went to were all beautiful, the wild life amazing and the waters perfect.
Meals, morning noon and night were beyond delicious. Accommodating all the different tastes of 4 children was above and beyond.
The dolphins made my daughters trip.
Next time my husband will be on board and we'll dive the Rhone again!
Hopefully the turtle will still be sitting peacefully on top of the wreck!
Keep Sailin'

Dearest Dave & Des - 15/4/15

Here are some of the biggest highlights of our OUTSTANDING stay at Majestic Spirit...
8am. Oh... breakfasts! Continental & American for the price
of one. Jokes and hazelnut coffee. What else?
8am-1pm. Plenty of things to do. Scuba, Paddle Board, Sun Tanning,
Wakeboard, Snorkel, Kayak, Music... everything followed by Dave's "bye bye".
1-3pm. Oh... Lunch! After receiving our greatly stuffed plates,
we would spend at least 20 minutes speaking about Des' skills and heart for cooking. Well, some need for siesta after that...
3-7pm Do you need anything else? This is what you will hear at
MS almost every minute.
Oh... tea time! Our dearest Des would prepare from "Bruschetta" to "Bree Cheese" and delight us. Dave of course, always there to help.
7-9pm Dinner... and thanks for everything. Then LED and see big
~ Gustavo
Every second I was thinking: When are we coming back. We will definitely see you in the future.

Dave & Desiree
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I don't know if there are words to express how grateful we are for the last 9 days. It has truly been a fabulous vacation - fun of fun times, new experiences, and many memories that we will treasure forever.

Thank you so much for getting us in on the Necker Island Tour. It was wonderful to see the island and especially all the animals. Noah had his first (and maybe the last!) GIANT Tortoise ride - we will never forget this fabulous opportunity.

Thank you also for the fun Pirate Night! It was so generous of you to share your costumes with us so we'd fit right in. And we had so much fun in the front row!

And thanks for all the fun tubing and "double-dogging". I can't believe Noah got his first tube ride in, and Geoff and I will have to perfect our "double-dogging" skills!

And thank you for the fabulous going away gifts. The map of our travels is an awesome keep sake and we loved the slide show and certificates.

These are just some of the memories we've created over the trip and these were all interspersed with DELICIOUS food, fabulous compay, fun experiences and many more memories. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. Experiencing all this with such generous, kind people made the trip just that much more special.

Thank you for everything!
Geoff, Haley & Noah
PS: Thanks for teaching us Farkel - we'll have to find the game back home so we can practice for our next trip!


Desiree, thank you for making all the faces on our food.
Dave, thank you for pulling me so fast on the tube.
I will miss both of you.
Bella (5 years old)


Our family cannot thank you enough for all the adventures that made this vacation so memorable for all of us - young and a bit older, and the young at heart.
Always, though, what makes the experience special is those that you share it with - Dave and Desiree, you are definitely the best ever. You are so genuine and authentic and your passion is contagious. If (when) I learn to dive, it will be because of your passion and the trust I have in you, because it can only be you that takes me down into the depths of the ocean.

One can only be truly happy, to feel the sadness that we feel today - we are leaving our friends, Dave & Desiree.

We will always remember your many many kindnesses.

Don and Rita


Captain Dave & Admiral Desiree

Thank you both for an ARRRRMAZING vacation - it truly was the best yet!
We will never forget all the adventures we shared as a family (including the best birthday ever). Dolphins, Turtles, fish, swimming, snorkelling, diving, treasure hunt, Pirates, Tubing, double-dogging, Arrrrlympics, Farkel, food, food, food, fun, fun, fun, and fabulous company - who could ask for more?

We will definitely see you again....
(Charlotte has already ordered it!)

Lots of love

Christmas 2014
Dave & Desiree,
We are just aboard our return flight home, already lamenting leaving your wonderful Caribbean paradise. We want to thank you one final time for how much thoughtfulness and care you put into our week. Most importantly your itinerary gave us a great exposure to many of the different facets of the BVIs. And we loved them all equally, from the happening Bitter End right through to the secluded coves and deserted islands. Even all of our onshore excursions were well chosen, from the action at the Baths to feeling like Robinson Crusoe as we hiked all over the secluded Salt Island. Each and every meal was so well planned and deliciously prepared Elisa would like to follow up with Desiree for a few recipes. We eagerly awaited 4pm every day to see what tasty snack and tempting cocktail would appear. The list of creative, personalized touches you brought to our trip is almost endless. The passion and commitment Dave displayed in getting the kids SSI scuba certified was above and beyond the call of duty I know they will remember him and his lessons every time they dive for the rest of their lives.

We just hope you both had half as good a time as we did this past week, and most importantly we hope Dave gets well soon. Please keep us posted on what his diagnosis ends up being, and on his track to full recovery.

Happy Sailing, Gil, Elisa, Dani, Adam & Syd (+ Luc & Aleeza)

Thank you for coming to our S.O.S. Y'all truly have an amazing boat. We had such a great time and enjoyed spending our honeymoon with the two of you.

The food and hospitality was very refreshing.

I'm glad we decided to join you guys and glad you guys stuck with us, even though the storm delayed us 2 days.

Y'all are amazing people and we WILL be back to travel with y'all again. We will come and stay longer and will come with some family and friends. We will recommend you and the Majestic Spirit to anyone and everyone.

Good luck at the boat show!

Dave can fix anything, great story teller, has a calm demeanor, essential when dealing with new divers. Sets a "beautiful table".

Desiree has many talents #1 a Master Chef, there are no short cuts when preparing our meals. I am amazed at the variety and complexity. She dives, photographer, sky dives, bungee jumps and climbs into our rooms and makes a bed you can bounce a quarter on!

Loved our time with them, hope to see them again.

Adam & Sandra P.

Thank you for a great week.

Dave, the boys will remember the dive forever!! And Desiree the food was fantastic.

We really enjoyed our time with you and hope to do it again soon!

Dave & Dez

Thank you so much for this opportunity!
I enjoyed spending a week on the boat with y'all.

DEZ, your cooking is to-die for. There wasn't a meal I didn't like and I loved all the new things I was able to try.
Also, you are such a sweet and fun person to be around. You are a genuinely good person and I would like to thank you for introducing me to Farkle/BS, because I'm now the all time champ of the game :)

NOW DAVE, you are the coolest person I've ever met. I love your stories / jokes and your great sense of humor. Also, thank you for certifying me in scuba diving. I was so comfortable trusting you and I was lucky to have you as an instructor.

Both of you are so hard-working and made our week fun-filled and relaxing.
Love you guys!

Dear Dave & Desiree....
I have about a million words of gratitude floating around in my head right now for you.
Our time aboard the Majestic Spirit has been absolutely priceless. I don't think we've seen our kids adjust so quickly and / or enjoy themselves so thoroughly before. Your hospitality, your humility and absolute passion for what you do is not only infectious, but inspiring.
This has honestly been the greatest adventure of our lives. You are both so wonderful... we will miss you tremendously.... until we return, that is! ~ Chyler.

Dave & Desiree,
You could not have done a better job naming your ship! "Majestic Spirit", captures the heart behind everything we experienced on our vacation. This has been by far the greatest adventure, most fun and incredible journey we are the "West Pride" have ever encountered. The memories made are priceless, but more importantly, we will treasure the new friendship created with the two of you. We look forward to many more adventures sailing the BVI with our favorite crew!!!
See you in December!

Des & Dave
Greatest Vacation Ever!!!
You started our journey based on minimal information and kicked it off with a bang. As you got to know us you enhanced our adventure with the smallest of details. I got to watch my grandchildren hunt for treasure, snorkel, dive and enjoy every moment of the day without electronics, just nature. My entire family relaxed, learned diving tips, sailing and all about the sea... and were always smiling.
You have a passion for the sea, nature and people and it comes out in everything you do, again... thank you.
Be healthy, happy and we will see you soon.

CHARTER DATES: 7-14 June 2014
Oh my gosh! Dave & Desiree Bean were absolutely amazing! They went above and beyond to make us feel right at home and a part of the family. Our children (10,7 and 5) fell totally in love with them!

The yacht was so beautiful. It felt much bigger than the website indicates. Everything we wanted and/or needed was on board. Desiree worked around the clock to ensure everything was spotless.

The food was delicious! Everything Desiree made was fantastic. I mean, she even got my picky children to clean their plates every meal... barely a crumb left.

Our vacation FAR-EXCEEDED our expectations! This was truly the greatest family vacation of our lives.
Dave completed the process for our 10 year old son's scuba certification, ensuring the most incredible adventure of his life thus far.

We are so excited too for our next adventure with the Bean's on their beautiful boat and will definitely make Majestic Spirit our vacation destination every year! We absolutely love them!

You are amazing people with a fantastic boat. You instantly made us feel at home & opened your arms to us like old friends. Thank you so very much for your hospitality and the trip I will always remember fondly.

Dearest Desiree & Dave
Never have I felt more welcome and so spoiled. You welcomed us into your home, the Majestic Spirit, and we had a most incredible experience. We came to St Thomas to witness the marriage of our brother Peter, and a lovely lady, Sandy. That fairy tale union led us to the Majestic Spirit and an AMAZING 48 hours in your world. We have fallen in love with your corner of the world. Thank you for everything. Your hospitality is unsurpassed.

Dearest Dave & Desiree
AMAZING world you've introduced us to. Thank you for your great and loving spirit. Peace...

I cannot put into words how amazing this past week has been. Could not have asked for a better first charter - will be hard for another to live up to the amazing experiences, but especially the amazing FOOD! I did not taste anything I did not like.
I am happy to be in the business and hope to send many people your way so they too can experience a trip of a lifetime!
I am also thrilled that you both got to be a part of my surprise engagement and will never forget the role you played in it.

Thanks for everything you guys did for us, and dealing with our nonsense.
I had 5 great dives and saw many sea turtles. The snorkelling was fabulous and you took us to the most incredible places.
The watersports were so much fun and I'm glad I learned the game B.S.
This was a great experience, and something I will never forget.
We need to come back so I can get another one of Desiree's desserts!
Thanks for everything!

Dave & Desiree..... Arrrrr!
What a fabulous week! You were an amazing crew + fantastic hosts.

We will miss you and stay in touch.
Thanks so much.

WOW! What can I say?
What a trip we had...
Thank you for sharing your home and beautiful surroundings with us. The meals were wonderful, the beaches, snorkelling, pirate show and water activities were fantastic.
Thank you also for teaching Cito how to dive, he loves it and that's such a gift you gave him.
Johnny also learned so much from you, what a treat that was for him to dive with you.
Thanks for everything!

Dave & Desiree - you made our 1st sailing trip sooo wonderful.
Caroline was anxious about living with someone she didn't know for a whole week. Guess what? You made us so comfortable & welcome and showed us so many adventures, that the week was over before we knew it - and we don't want to leave.
You are our friends & we appreciate the love, adventure and experience of this wonderful Virgin Islands Paradise. We will be back!
Best of luck & absolutely love your yacht - Majestic Spirit. The food was fantastic!

So nice to have met you.

Dave & Des

This was the most amazing, beautiful trip! We have wanted to do this for years and finally made it.

We were blessed with an amazing Admiral & Captain and had such a wonderful time.

You two became friends and we are so grateful for the times and stories we shared. I enjoyed the diving excursion, jumping off the boat, outdoor showering, fishing, & paddle boarding.

Thank you for the good times & good fellowship.

Dear Dave & Desiree

We have had the most unforgettable vacation sailing with you through the BVI's.

You are so kind and gracious and have taken care of all our needs without our even asking. You are both amazing people. The food, fun and most of all the laughter, will never be forgotten.

I hope we can return in the future for another trip. Take care and good luck with future charters and globe trotting adventures!

Thanks again

Captain Dave you were born to do this! Thanks so much for your passion, your stories and your beautiful boat!

CORNEY FAMILY CHARTER - 1 to 11 Dec 2013
Dear Dave & Des
The pair of you did everything humanly possible to make our experience one of the best family vacations we have ever had. We have been to sail in Greece, Turkey & Italy and this BVI trip topped them all. On a more personal note, we never felt for a moment that this was a "CHARTER", but rather we felt we were your valued friends on a great adventure together. We all loved the time & experiences we had together.
We thank you for your hospitality.... I have no doubt that this "Maiden Voyage" on the Majestic Spirit will serve as the beginning of many wonderful adventures for future guests and that you will have a tremendously successful future aboard this fantastic ship!!
Paul Corney


Thank you Dave & Des for an amazing trip! I will remember it for a lifetime.
Your friend


Thank you Dave & Des for creating one of the most memorable trips I've ever taken... with sharks, tarpon, dolphins, turtles and stingrays (pretty much every personally terrifying mammal and others for me) you calmed my fears I'll never forget this experience for as long as I live, you've made it super special.


Dear Dave & Des
Thank you so very much for such an amazing trip. We planned this trip over the last year and our experience in the BVI with you was better than we could have imagined.
Des - Your cooking was ABSOLUTELY wonderful. We will be talking about your delicious meals for a long time! (And if you do make a cook book - PLEASE let us know!)
Dave - Thank you for showing us the BVI, taking us scuba diving, dragging us around on ski's, wake boards & paddle boards and for your endless jokes!!
You are both absolutely wonderful & we couldn't have asked for a better "Captain & Admiral".
I am so happy for the both of you that you have your own boat now & wish you all the best with your future charters and then your travels around the world!
Many many thanks for everything. This was a trip of a lifetime & unforgettable.
All the best always,


Thank you for an INCREDIBLE 10 days on your beautiful home. I am never going to forget the fun times we had... and if I do, there will be the 10 pounds I gained (from the delicious cooking) and the bruises from wake boarding to remind me!
PS: Just remember that we de-virgined you... since we were your first charter. Was it good for you?


Dave & Des
Our feelings cannot be fully captured in words - but we'll try!!
This trip was a long time coming & our expectations were extremely high. We're overjoyed to say that you far exceeded anything imagined.
We have no doubt that you will continue to capture the true adventure of the BVI for all of those who have the pleasure of sailing with you.
Thank you for everything - including being a part of our family for 10 days. You made this one to remember forever.
All the best and hope to see you again
Graison & Deanna
Des, please make a cook book and send me one!

Majestic Spirit is a new addition... but these are some of the most recent guests comments about the crew from their previous vessel.


Dear Captain Dave & Admiral Desiree
What an absolutely fabulous time for our entire family. Each port and bay will give us special memories of our time there. Our first snorkel to see a turtle & beautiful fish was amazing & you could tell when you heard the girls scream and talk through their snorkels.
The wonderful water sports ~ with all of us able to paddle board, kayak, intertube, wake board & water ski - it was so much fun & all the girls screaming was the best!
Dave, thank you for being so easy going with whatever we wanted to do, whenever we wanted to do it. The laughs and photo's are great, including the moments of "bababa" and "you can do it".
Thank you Desiree for being such an amazing spirit and wonderful cook. The food was absolutely great - we enjoyed it ALL.
Thank you both for all our cocktail hours, with special drinks for the girls and us. It is so great how you both were with the girls - they had a great time and truly enjoyed themselves and I think felt at home on the boat.
The diving was wonderful from the Indians, to the Rhone and ending with the girls first night dive - with all the great rays.
I will also not forget paddling with the dolphins and all jumping off the front of the boat.
You both are wonderful people and the trip couldn't have been any better. It was the best!
Love Mara, Dave, Lynn & Sydney McIlvain.

Dear Magiver & Chef Dez
This amazing trip has surpassed all our expectations. It was the perfect vacation. The experience was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this memory. The food was delicious and amazing and we are all "foodies".
You two are wonderful individuals and it was an absolute please to be in your presence.
That you for the memories that will last a lifetime. You embraced us all and we appreciated all the ambiance from the views to the jokes, to the wonderful dives - to the laughs.
Cheers and as always...
Happy Days

What an incredible pleasure and distinct privilege it has been to have shared a small part of our lives with you two here in paradise. Your ability to have fun & engage our daughter in activities where she constantly enjoyed herself was incredible.
It was great to be able to unplug, eat well, drink a bit and enjoy yourself without feeling any stress.
Looking back on the memories of the trip, I wouldn't change a thing. I am blessed to have gained two great new friends & can't wait for our paths to cross again.
Thanks for everything & peace and blessings to you both. May "MAJESTIC SPIRIT" be all you want it to be & bring you both much joy and success
All the best

Dear Dave & Desiree
I want you to know that we had very high expectations for our vacation and this trip has exceeded them.
Thank you for showing us how to appreciate all the BVI's have to offer and proving that it's possible to leave all problems behind for at least a week.
We enjoyed the diving, the wake boarding, the intertubing, the food, the jokes and most importantly, the company.
You two definitely have repeat customers. Hope to see you again soon.
David - 8/11/13
PS: Baaaaa!!!

Dear Captain Dave & Chef Des
Thank you so much for an amazing experience and a trip of a lifetime that we will never forget. We have created so many incredible memories with you two and it's going to be so sad leaving you guys.
Both of you are such unique individuals and it has been a pleasure to learn so much from you, whether it has to do with nature or our personal lives, we appreciate it all. We are glad to have the same humour interest as you, it has made our trip so much better. It has been a true honor living on the boat with you guys. We are so grateful for everything you have done to make our trip the best it could be.
Although we have only known you for a week, it feels like we are family.
It's hard to say goodbye, but we REALLY hope to see you again on your new boat.
Thank you so much again, we will miss you guys.
Love Morgan & Lynn

Dear Dave & Des
Thank you so much for an awesome trip!
Captain Dave, you were always willing to do whatever we wanted. Your videos made us all laugh and your laugh made everyone smile... HUGE!!! We appreciate you answering all our questions and teaching us so much about all of the islands and marine life. We extremely enjoyed diving with you for our first time and thanks for taking us to such great dive locations!
Admiral Des, you always made the most D E L I C I O U S food and it was rare that someone didn't clear their plate! Thanks for making sure we always had snacks and were never hungry.... and thanks for providing the Kebab stick in times of need :)
Also, we loved your story about how the birds help each other with food! Most of all, thanks to both of you guys for a once in a lifetime experience in the BVI's. Hopefully we will get to meet again on "MAJESTIC SPIRIT"!!
And thanks for the amazing video at the end, provided by the amazing DMB! And for the great T-Shirts and the Pirate Certificates! THANKS!

SCHEINMAN CHARTER 29 July to 3 August 2013

Dear Captain Dave & Chef Desiree
Thank you for an incredible week - it was an absolute gift to our family!
The Caribbean was as magnificent as we imagined - even more so!
Each stop was better than the previous one, but what we didn't expect was the fabulous company that you provided. The wonderful stories, guided tours of the island, pirate lore, movie, music and of course the most amazing food we have ever had!
It was such a joy watching the kids enjoy the water sports, one of the highlights. Thank you so much for so generously and so skillfully guiding them on the water... and I almost forgot the sunsets... WOW!!
We wish you all the best in your future and hope to see you again someday!
Maureen, Elan, Mackenzie, Griffin and Pirate Maddy.

STERMAN CHARTER - 20- 27 July 2013

We had the best week of holidays in a long, long time. This paradise is a magnificent place, but thanks to Dave & Des it was turned into something magical.
We met the islands in another way, guided by Captain Dave and very well taken care of by Des, who was like a mom.
Roberto, Florencia, Nacho, Martina & Santino Sterman
... are very happy to have met you and we hope to see you again.
Thanks for everything
PS: No Problem, easyjob.com.


Captain Dave & "Admiral" Desiree
After years of dreaming about sailing the Caribbean, my dream finally came true! The crew fulfilled my every expectation. Beautiful weather, snorkeling among colorful sealife, trying to paddle board and water ski, a barefoot hike up Salt Island, playing giant Jenga and on and on.
Desiree is a master chef and we felt as if we were eating happiness... (quote from Luke).
We wish you much success and maybe one day we will sail together again.
PS: Thanks for making my 50th so special.

What a special trip you've provided for we Bessettes this week.
You both have such a gift for making us feel at home in your home, and applying such personal touches to make it feel designed "Just For Us".
From the history lessons of the region, to the spectacular diving and snorkeling, through perfect meals and relaxing evenings, we could not have imagined a more perfect vacation.
Thank you for taking such time with Chad to certify him in scuba, with Carter to expand his curiosities, and with Ellie to make her at home in your underwater world.

You welcomed us into your home, you welcomed us into your friendship - now you are in our hearts. The beauty and fun of the BVI are a mere reflection of how wonderful you guys are. Thanks for all the Scuba, Tubing, SUPing, Beaching and sailing - it really put us on "Island Time, Mon". It was great to watch us expand our adventure together with climbing mountains and exploring beaches looking for geocaches. "My Darling" will now have a new meaning for me always. Arrrrrgh

For being an "inland" boy, I have spent many days on the ocean. This week has absolutely been one of my all time favorites. Everything from the week was phenomenal, but you guys were the best part. I feel very fortunate that we "picked you out of the hat" and were able to share the week with you. I very much look forward to revisiting you some place in the world. It won't matter where you are, I want to come back on your boat!. Thanks for breaking my "Diving Cherry".

Name: John & Vicki Smither

Date: April 20-27, 2013

Thank you for selecting our company for your tropical adventure. Kindly take a few moments to honestly evaluate your experience onboard your selected vessel. We are committed to dealing with the very best in this industry, and your comments and impressions allow ourselves, your crew and your yacht to make any necessary improvements. If necessary, longer explanations may be attached on a separate page.

Comment on the comfort onboard: All 6 guest were comfortable. We had everything we needed and the crew was most accommodating.

Comment on the condition of the boat: The boat seemed to be very well cared for, everything clean, organized and efficient. I cannot think of anything that we wanted that was not available.

Comment on the cleanliness of the boat: Excellent, not only when we boarded, but kept clean daily.

Comment on the congeniality of the Captain and crew: These two people were so friendly and engaging, we wanted to bring them home with us, certainly asked them to visit someday.

Comment on the service of the Captain and crew: We were very well cared for. I know this was part of their job and something they do every day, but they really made us feel special.

Comment on the fun aspect of the Captain and crew: Open to all ideas, gave us plenty of choices when we were not sure of the options. They were both willing to engage in fun and equally adaptable to quiet time.

Comment on the expertise of the Captain and crew: Our crew proved to be very well trained and experienced. We watched both crew handle the boat and the demands of sailing with ease and precision.

Comment on the quality of your meals: We could not have had better meals. All were well constructed, plated beautifully and the smells coming from the galley had us drooling all day!

Comment on the presentation of your meals: Everything was well thought out. Presentation was not only artistic, but delivered in a way that made us all have fork in hand and anxious to sample.

Would you charter this yacht again? (Circle one) YES NO


This is tremendously important to our company; we respect your candid answers and comments and thank you for your time.

I have spoken to all members of our group. Each feels this was a wonderful holiday, maybe the best ever. We each want to thank the crew, as it was their efforts and expertise that created this life long wonderful memory!


Dear Captain & Admiral
What an amazing trip!!! The Smither family vacation was a huge success and it was all because of you two.
Your hard work and attention to detail added such an amazing level of joy and fun to the trip. When we arrived and shortly after had our bags unpacked. I was so excited. It's a small thing, but so cool and relieving.
The food was phenomenal, every meal we had was so delicious. Des put in some real love and effort on every dish. She is an amazing cook!
Thank you so much for the warm and inviting atmosphere. Dave, I'm going to miss your jokes and thoroughly enjoyed the sailing.
Joey Smither
PS: I'm going to miss the Happy Arrrrrs!!!

Thank you so much for a WONDERFUL vacation/experience. We all had a grand time and that was mostly because of you two.
You guys are some of the most amazingly genuine people I have ever met. Your warmth, hospitality & welcoming nature are heart warming & sincere, which brings forth feelings of such familiarity & comfort. I can't say enough about how much I/we have enjoyed being with you guys on board.
Des, thanks for all the amazing meals you prepared for us along with your witty charm! Dave, we will miss your wonderful stories & jokes the most!
I look forward to seeing you guys again one day & introducing you to my kids (they will love you guys)!! We will keep you in our hearts as we fondly look back on this trip.
Wishing you both all the best & sending you loads of love!
Thanks again!
Minal & Jason Smither

I had hoped for three outcomes for the Smither vacation 2013.
- A vacation for a lifetime of memories
- For my family to be together in a special place
- Fun, Sun and Relaxation
By all accounts and measures, both of you exceeded my expectations by a long way! An unexpected and welcome surprise was sharing the experience with wonderful people such as yourselves. I was not expecting the fun stories, jokes and wonderful cuisine.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Until we meet Arrrrgin

Dear Dave & Desi

As we told you, the Willis's and Wisemans had a holiday on Quest in 2009. We had what was probably the best time we've ever had. We wanted to come back to the BVI because of the boat and because of the crew. The two of you absolutely did not disappoint! You made sure we had a PERFECT holiday. We felt that you honestly wanted our party to have a good time... ALL the time. You laughed with us (I hope it was WITH us and not AT us!) and you made us laugh. You gave us wonderful weather for the whole week. Desi, the food could not have been better. PERFECT!! We will come again! We can only hope the two of you will be with us. Thank you for the "NEW BEST HOLIDAY EVER"! We love you guys.

Dearest Desiree & Dave

There are very few times in my life when I find it difficult to say thank you in an appropriate way...

When we started talking about this trip last March I knew we were taking a chance of blowing a lot of money if things did not work out, OR, on the other side investing a lot of money on our most precious commodity - our family. We bet on the latter and took a leap of faith to create a trip for our family that would make memories for us to hold onto for the rest of our lives... AND... what happened? God shined on us like he has so very many times before and this entire experience has turned out to be the very most treasured and valued time we have ever spent together as a family. These moments, these memories, these pictures we will forever have in our hearts and in our minds cannot be put to a price - they are priceless and if I would've DREAMT in my wildest dreams that we would have met the two of you and that this trip would've meant this much to each of us, I would have paid ten times over.

You are genuinely amazing people and you have astounded and blessed us every day we have been here. You are empathetic, caring, patient, kind, compassionate, and have a zest that doesn't compare. This was not luck, it was ALL prayers answered in the most incredible way ever. We thank you both so very, very, very much for everything you have done for each and every one of us, but mostly for your friendship. We are so greatly blessed to know you. May God continue to shine on you and you on others. There is no gratuity that would be adequate of our thanks. Peace and blessings.



Dave & Desiree

Words cannot express how much you have made this voyage our most memorable yet. From welcoming night to Noelle's Purple Boa Party, to Christmas, you have truly become friends to us. Your patience & time spent with us and the girls have made this a true holiday. Thank you so much and look forward to Angela's 50th in 2014.



To the Captain (DJ Dave) and his Admiral (Desi)

I came on this journey and expected to have a great time, but I cannot put into words just how great it was. It truly was the trip of a lifetime. As for you two, we could not have hand-picked a better crew. I have also never seen anyone be so great and patient with the girls. Y'all really are two amazing people that I can now call my friends. I feel extremely fortunate that I was asked to go on this trip and that I was able to meet the both of y'all. I feel very blessed. Thank you so very much.



Dear Dave & Desiree

Honestly, we could not have had better people helping and guiding us. Both of you were just amazing. I have soooo many memories from this trip, being in the water, Dave's jokes, Desiree's cooking, scuba, and just so many other things. This trip has been awesome and it would not have happened without y'all. I honestly think that I will be seeing you again at least once. How does that sound eh? Thank you so much for everything. Y'all will not be forgotten.

Cheers - Rob

Dear Desiree & Dave - November 18-25 - 2012

Thank you so much for letting us stay on your boat. I had a great time diving. Dave drove us around. He made great cocktails, set up MiFi2200, and helped us fish! Desiree made delicious meals and kept us in line! The diving was great and we had a ball. The boat was so clean and beautiful and the islands were amazing. We will miss being with you.
