Photos and Description of the East End vacation yacht rental

Exclusively for 1 couple. Honeymoon, Anniversary, Birthday, Special Occasions

Admiral Bobbie Rae and Captain Dave are committed to providing you and yours the ultimate sailing vacation experience for 1 couple. So please read on, and please come sail with us and create precious vacation memories that will last your lifetime.

Unlike other yachts, we specialize in only 1 couple aboard. We provide the perfect getaway on your own private non-smoking crewed yacht. Being the only couple onboard, you are treated like royalty. Do what you want, when you want. You have the freedom to explore, discover, and experience new adventures everyday. Your voyage is personalized and is a customized vacation tailored to you and your desires. Captain Dave and Admiral Bobbie Rae are committed to providing you the dream sailing vacation experience of a lifetime. Feel the wind and sun as you glide through the majestic and unspoiled Virgin Islands. Visit beautiful palm-tree lined beaches, hike lush trails, snorkel and view the bountiful underwater world of coral, sea fans, and multitudes of fish.

Our 7 day cruise begins in St. Thomas. On a typical day you will leisurely awaken to another beautiful day in paradise, and we may sail for perhaps 1-2 hours to another more beautiful anchorage. Depending upon your cruising preferences, you may spend the majority of your time off the vessel visiting the local beach bar, snorkeling, hiking, eating out, shopping. Alternatively, you may wish to remain aboard reading, sunbathing on deck, or swimming snorkeling from the vessel. The choice is always yours.

The following is a sample itinerary:

Day 1: Board the vessel at noon on the east side of St. Thomas. Sail to Leinster Bay on St. John and snorkel Waterlemon Cay. Hike up to the ruins overlooking the bay, and visit the Annenberg Sugar Mill ruins.

Day 2: Check into the BVI at Soper's Hole, West End of Tortola. Then sail to Norman Island and enjoy the beach bar amenities at Pirates Bight, snorkel the Indians and the Caves, party at the Willi T at night, and next day go for a morning hike along the ridge line. Truly enjoy the original 'Treasure Island.'

Day 3: Continue sailing up the Sir Francis Drake Channel, visiting Salt Island and making a snorkel stops at the Wreck of the Rhone to visit one of the most sought after dive/snorkel spots in the world. End up drinking painkillers at the sunset bar at Cooper Island Beach Resort.

Day 4: The Bathes. This is one of the 'must see' spots in the islands. Huge granite boulders toppled on one another from long ago volcanic activity, forming many intricate passages and tidal pools (hence the name 'Bathes'). Snorkel, swim, sun, hike, enjoy the local beach bar. Then enjoy a sunset sail up to Gorda Sound, home of the Bitter End Resort, Saba Rock, Biras Creek, and Leverick Bay. Enjoy the Michael Bean's Pirate Happy Arrrr, or view the Mocko Jumbies. Snorkel in the incredible Eustachia Sound.

Day 5: Anageda, known as the 'Forbidden Paradise.' Surrounded by dangerous fringing reef, Anagada is generally off limits to most charter boats unless the skipper demonstrates sufficient experience. Travel to the north side beaches for miles and miles of incredible sand and some of the best snorkeling anywhere. And the lobster...delicious!

Day 6: Jost Van Dyke. Discover the Soggy Dollar Bar, and home of the original pain killer. Climb to the weather station at the top of the island. Dance the night away at Foxys, the #2 New Years Eve Destination in the world.

Day 7: Sail back to St. Thomas. On the way, visit Cruz Bay, St. John, to check into US Customs and Immigration and to shop at many of the fine establishments.

Additional cruise notes: The above sample itinerary is written to give you a flavor of what's possible. Some guests come aboard with well defined notions of what they would like to see and do. Others leave it strictly up to Captain Dave and Admiral Bobbie Rae to serve as their travel guides. Either way, our promise to you is that we will do everything possible to ensure your complete cruising satisfaction.

Bel Ami is an Amel 53 SuperMaramu, a 53 foot monohull sailboat designed specifically as a world cruising boat. Built in Rochelle, France, she is one of the finest sailboats ever built, with a legendary reputation among cruising sailors. Not typically found in charter fleets, she stands out as an example of safety and seaworthiness. She is equipped with safety features that meet or exceed all United States Coast Guard requirements. She is constantly updated with the latest in sailing technology, including motorized sail controls, electronic navigation charts, satellite communication system. Bel Ami is designed to assure your comfort and safety.

Other amenities include a 6 man dinghy with 15 horsepower engine (the "family car"); 2 person kayak; onboard movie library; complete galley kitchen; internet access in most places we visit; snorkel equipment.

The aft master cabin is all yours: has an oversized queen mattress that is heaven itself. The bed is surrounded by cushioned walls that demarcate your private intimate space. There is ample cabinet space for all your clothes and personal belongings. There is also a built-in vanity with mirror, electric outlets, personal fans, air-conditioning, LED lighting throughout, 6 feet 4 inch headroom.

On deck you will find a spacious very comfortable cockpit complete with bimini sun shades with side shade curtains. Our music system allows you to play your own favorite tunes The stern (back of the boat) steps down to the water, making it exceptionally easy to go for a swim. The well constructed board ladder is simple to use.

The Bel Ami unique difference is that we only take 1 couple aboard. Most other sailing charter operators cater to multiple couples, thereby allowing for lower costs overall by sharing costs. Because we cater to only 1 couple, you are afforded a level of privacy and luxury that is unmatched.
