Catamaran Pelican Overview

Pelican, previously named Fantasy Island, raises the bar for affordable luxury charters! This exciting 58ft catamaran's sleek lines, high tech construction and modern interior have earned her the prestigious award of "Best Cruising Catamaran of 2003" from Cruising World Magazine, and she sails just as fast as she looks!

Clever design gives Pelican more usable space than many yachts her size, allowing her to accommodate up to 10 guests in air-conditioned staterooms with four queen-sized beds and one double-sized room all with vacuum-flush bathrooms. The crew has separate accommodation and bathroom.

The salon is open and spacious and includes the galley, with serving counter, a bar and comfortable seating. You can watch a movie on the larger flat-screen TV with Bose sound system, listen to some good music, or just relax in air-conditioned comfort. There's also full-time Internet access and a phone for your convenience. At night, recessed LED lighting provides a dramatic effect.

Just aft of the salon is the cockpit area with dining tables on both sides. The cockpit has a permanent carbon-fiber bimini overhead to protect you from the sun, and the entire cockpit area can be enclosed in the event of rain. The cockpit is at deck level, so you don't need to climb in or out of it you simply walk through the aft entry opening to the deck beyond.

Each hull has wide stern steps leading down to the water for swimming or diving, with a fold-down stainless steel ladder. You can enter the dinghy easily, thanks to the design of the boarding platform, which is the same height as the dinghy's inflatable tubes. A fresh-water hot and cold shower is located at each stern platform, so you can rinse off after swimming.

Sun lovers particularly enjoy the large forward trampolines and seats built into the bow railing each side. This is a very popular spot both at anchor and under sail. Directional Bose speakers mounted on the mast can play music for your enjoyment. Due to the massive sails, there's usually some shade from the sun on one side of the boat or the other when under way.

Pelican has twin engines for reliability under power, two generators to assure you of electricity whenever needed, and a large (65 gallons per hour) water maker to provide an uninterrupted water supply throughout your charter. She points higher into the wind than most cruising sailboats and sails faster, all without noticeable heel and without the fuss of a conventional sailboat. Her performance never ceases to surprise experienced charter guests (and the other boats as you pass them)!

Casey & Angela

Captain Casey

As a prior captain of historic sailing vessels, Casey brings a wealth of maritime history and a unique perspective to your cruising experience. Casey’s passion for boating began as a young student participating in a sail training program aboard the 137ft sailing vessel Denis Sullivan of his hometown, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Growing from that exposure, Casey has since enjoyed 11 years of magnificent tall ship sailing, traversing the East and West coasts of the U.S., as well as 4 of the 5 Great Lakes, and the Caribbean. While aboard tall ships, Casey has cultivated a love of sharing exceptional sailing adventures with his guests. He also enjoys a broad appreciation for various cultures, experiences, and cuisines, and is not afraid of showing his culinary enthusiasm in the galley as well.

Whether he is firing off a 50 pound cannon during a historic reenactment, or a flame grilled captain’s burger for your charter, Casey is sure to make a booming impact on your trip. With his 100ton USCG license, STCW certificate, and copious offshore sailing experience, Casey is ready to show your company all the relaxation and excitement of a sailing vacation in the beautiful more

He and his new wife, Angela look forward to providing your group with a sailing experience to touch your soul, just as the sea has touched theirs.

Chef Angela

Angela started her life's journey on the Chesapeake Bay, crabbing and oystering with her grandfather. She then found true love in the sea and her partner, Casey, through a career on tall ships. From guiding students through the act of sailing a 200 year old vessel, to dishing up a hearty and delicious offshore meal, she has found joy in every aspect of a water based lifestyle. Her nautical culinary voyage has taken her from cooking in the beautiful Nantucket Sound, to shaking up a delicious Caribbean Hurricane Cocktail on Lake Erie.

With a familial background in local agriculture, in addition to water keeping, Angela enjoys incorporating local fresh produce into her creations. She finds herself browsing farmers’ markets wherever she goes, and appreciates the variety of bright colors and flavors brought forth by the freshest ingredients.

Angela and Casey met each other six years ago aboard the 122ft sailing vessel Lynx and have become an un-sinkable team since. They are both USCG certified 100 ton Captains with sailing endorsements. As such, they each take part in the responsibilities of both sailing and cooking up magnificent fare on the vessel. While Angela takes the helm of the galley most often, she is not afraid to take the helm of the boat for an adventurous spin.

This dynamic couple greatly enjoys sharing their fantastic sea stories, and looks forward to inviting you aboard to cultivate memories of your own!

Reviews for Pelican with previous crew:

We cannot say enough great things about our charter on Pelican. Our crew was outstanding, 5 stars! Lovely people, excellent at their job, great ease at making all of us comfortable and fed us beautiful, delicious, healthy meals that were beyond expectations.

The boat provided plenty of space where 9 of us could easily feel comfortable. Our rooms were cozy and we slept just fine after adjusting to being on water.

Our group utilized the paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear and floating mats daily. Everyone also enjoyed having the front of the catamaran to lay out on and relax either early morning sunrises or afternoon sunsets.

On our last night our captain Ty set up the inside TV so we could all sit around and watch the first episode of season 8 of Game of Thrones.

All Day Fun for 7 Days. My daughter and I had a fabulous dive at The Rhone where we saw 5 reef sharks, two eels, a giant lobster, schools of colorful fish and a lionfish. While moored in Caneel Bay we saw several spotted rays and a nurse shark. The sea life in the Virgin Island is absolutely spectacular.

Kristen G, aboard Catamaran Pelican April 2019  sailing the Virgin Islands

We all had the most incredible time.

We have nothing but praise for "Shawtumn". They're an amazing team - we always felt so well looked after. Autumn is an amazing cook. Always kept us on time so we didn't have to worry about anything. They read our group well and suggested excursions were always appreciated. I don't have any captains to compare Shawn to, but he seems to really know what he's doing and we all felt very safe. And added bonus - they're very fun to be around!

Pelican is very clean. A/C kept us comfortable at night. So many good places for lounging above deck.

The pre-cruise preference list was very helpful. The meals kept getting better and better. So impressive that Autumn can make that magic happen in such a small space.

Sailing Directions has great service, emails were always rapidly answered.
