Catamaran Better Days

Catamaran Better Days (previously named White House) is a 2012, 50' Lagoon Catamaran offering crewed yacht charters in the BVI & USVI. She features on-board scuba diving for certified guests and accommodations for up to 6 guests in 3 Queen cabins. Catamaran Better Days is a Carefree Yacht Charters affordable pick for families, couples, divers, or special occasions.

Here's what Taylor & Margaret told Carefree Yacht Charters about their fun factor: "We have designed our lives around the pursuit of unique experiences and quality times shared with family and friends. We like to think this makes us qualified guides on the matter, whether it’s teaching a guest to sail, hooking into a monster mahi-mahi, helping someone catch their first wave surfing, or sharing the secret to a good cocktail through extensive sampling. Margaret has a lot of fun with her food and her "Once Around The World" menu option will allow guests to share in her adventures through traveling while at the dinner table. We're enthusiastic about all the Virgin Islands has to offer and in our experience, it’s contagious."

Rates from $15,500 to $18,500. View availability, rate details and current Special Offer.

What Our Carefree Clients Said About Us

A group of girlfriends that we booked aboard 50' Catamaran Better Days in April, 2018 said: I think I can speak for all of us when I say that our trip was PHENOMENAL!!! I have to say, again, Lynne, how much I appreciated your willingness to work with us with everything you had going on with the re-build down there. You made our trip and experience 'a breeze' (pardon the pun :) I'll be chartering again for my son's graduation in 2020 and would be happy to work with you again! Many, many thanks!

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A family that we booked aboard 50' Catamaran Better Days in April, 2019 said:

Hi Lynne. Our trip aboard Better Days could not have been any better! We had such a wonderful time. Taylor and Margaret were an excellent crew choice for our family. The boat was roomy, comfortable and kept immaculate! We loved it!

Both Taylor and Margaret were warm, friendly, and professional. They made us feel very welcome and right at home on the boat. Margaret's meals were all delicious and healthy. We thoroughly enjoyed our charcuterie boards in the evenings after a full day of fun and activities. Her crab cakes were awesome as well. It was also such a treat to be able to go diving almost every day in those beautiful waters. Both Taylor and Margaret made sure our gear was set up and taken down after the dives. We really felt spoiled. What a treat! This trip was the first time we've had a vacation we I could truly relax and enjoy every moment with no worries about cooking and cleaning. We would definitely choose them again in the future.!

Thanks again for your guidance and expertise in helping us pick the right boat and a crew that feels like family now. We'll be back!

It was amazing. Taylor and Margaret were wonderful. I cannot believe how much there was for them to do and how gracefully they handled all of our needs and requests. The boat was spotless and was kept that way for the entirety of our trip. Food and drink were incredible and ample. (Remind Margaret to get me those recipes. I gave her a list!)

We have no complaints or concerns. It was a trip of a lifetime, and we were so fortunate to have spent it with Taylor and Margaret. Please put us on the mailing list!!

First and foremost our crew was absolutely wonderful. Your company should be proud to have such professional individuals working for you.

They were so accommodating and always worked to ensure that the trip was what we were wanting it to be for all the couples.

Margaret did a wonderful job with her dishes she was able to whip up in such a limited space. Being the main cook in our home and knowing how

Limited she was with her cooking/prep area I was absolutely amazed with every dish that came out of that kitchen being so beautifully presented and tasting absolutely marvelous

As though it was made in a very fine restaurant.

Taylor worked his buns off. He had some mechanical issues he had to deal with on the boat, but it never took him away to ensuring the agenda was met for the day.

He didn't let it rattle him too, and he was always very professional in working through the boat issues and getting it all figured out so that the trip continued on its journey.

I have absolutely no complaints about our trip.

It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience and there were no regrets from our end.

Margaret and Taylor did a marvelous job and I can't say enough good things about them, your company should be proud.

We are on our way home to Wyoming, where it is cold and snowing. We enjoyed our time on the White House and all the things we were able to fit into a week. Taylor and Margaret did a excellent job I always felt as if we were in very capable hands. The food was good and the drinks were great. Would definitely go back!

A group of couples that we booked aboard 50' Catamaran Better Days (previously called White House) in July, 2018 said:

Our group of 6 spent the most wonderful week aboard The White House with Ryan and Jill. The boat was beautiful, clean and very roomy. Jill's cuisine was to die for - especially her homemade Maryland style crab cakes! Our itinerary was perfect, and allowed for us to be flexible and visit as many of the hot spots as possible. Our favorite day was spent exploring Anegada and having giant lobsters for dinner at the Wonky Dog. Overall this was the trip of a lifetime, and I cannot wait to do it again! Thank you Lynne for all of your help in finding the best boat/crew for our group! Everything was perfect!

Please let me know if I can provide anything else! We truly loved every moment of this trip, and I wouldn't be surprised if we looked to do this trip again soon.

Cheers!

Crew

Genuine hospitality and contagious enthusiasm for the islands are what Margaret and Taylor are all about. Having sailed their 30’ monohull extensively from Maine to Grenada and lived aboard while exploring the Virgin Islands, they know how to turn the dream of a sailing adventure into a reality.

Taylor grew up in Central Virginia, splitting summers between living on the lake driving ski boats and traveling in the family RV to every state with a road to it. After earning a business degree from Appalachian State University with honors, Taylor started pursuing his passion for living
