CARPE DIEM II – A Lunch to Blog About!

Last week I was invited onboard the recently refit, 150′ Trinity, CARPE DIEM II, for an amazing lunch to introduce the new chef onboard, Chef Robert Ginsberg.  Captain Alan Tookey and his professional crew of eight were on point the entire time and everything was perfect except for the rainy weather that day.  Chef Robert has been in the yachting industry for over 10 years including a world cruise on a previous yacht.  His passion for cooking has lead him to work with legends such as James Beard, Julia Child and Anthony Bourdain.  If you are looking for an amazing motor yacht charter Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, or in New England this summer then look no further than CARPE DIEM II!CDII RUN Continue reading

Exploring the Unknown, a Luxury Yacht Charter around The Vieques!

Vieques and Culebra are two islands off the coast of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean Sea. These two islands combine together under the Spanish Virgin Islands and are found to the east of St Thomas and the USVI. Unlike the USVI and the BVI, the Spanish Virgin Islands are pretty unknown on the tourist map, providing charterers with an unparalleled experience,

combining the worlds finest beaches and scenery.

Lagoon450Vieques features some of the best beaches and conservation areas in the Caribbean. One of our best recommendations for your time on Vieques would be to head down to Mosquito Bay, which is allegedly the best bioluminescent bay in the world. So what should you expect from this experience? The bay is full of microorganisms which spark into life whenever they are moved, providing an almost neon light through the water. Even if you’re not the sporty type, we cannot recommend this experience highly enough and should be seen by all!

Charter a luxury catamaran from the eastern coast of Puerto Rico and explore these beautiful islands. We cannot recommend one of our Lagoon catamarans from Fajardo highly enough, providing guests with the very highest standards of luxury and comfort. Take your 10 closest friends or family members on a Lagoon 450 and be one of the first to explore these wonderful islands.
