Catamaran Copper Penny

Catamaran Copper Penny is a 2011, 56' Lagoon catamaran offering crewed yacht charters in the BVI & USVI. She features two fabulous and rotating crews, a fly-bridge deck, on-board diving and diving instruction, plus accommodations for up to 6 guests in 1 Master Queen Suite plus 2 Queen cabins. Catamaran Copper Penny is a Carefree Yacht Charters affordable pick for families, couples, divers or special occasions.

Here's what Jim & Amanda, the Winter Crew, told Carefree Yacht Charters about their "fun factor": "Our focus has always been "fun". Jim is often called the "camp counselor", leading the guests on crazy adventures. Whether it is dressing up with the guests for theme parties, or leading the guests in silly games, we keep the guests smiling. Sincerely, it is the laughter filled vacation moments that keep the guests coming back year after year."

Here's what Jerry & Dawn, the Spring/Summer Crew, told Carefree Yacht Charters about their favorite type of group: "We are a versatile crew who enjoy meeting others and with over 25 years of experience. After having multiple time repeat guests we now have friends all over the world. These include guests who came to party, returned on honeymoons and anniversaries, couples with friends, parents that came with children and returned to us as grandparents. It has been fun providing them with wonderful memories from celebration parties, tranquil and romantic moments, teaching young and old to snorkel and dive. We enjoy doing it all."

Rates from $24,500 to $27,500. View availability and rate details.

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A group of couples that we booked aboard Copper Penny in November, 2018 said:

Fantastic voyage on the Copper Penny in November 2018! Beautiful, well-maintained charter spectacularly crewed by husband/wife team Jim and Amanda who really made the trip special for my wife's 50th birthday. Whether relaxing on the CP enjoying Amanda's delicious food or hitting the hot spots, we felt like we had expert travel guides along for the adventure. We'll be back again soon (but not soon enough)!

A multi-repeat client and family that we booked aboard 56' Copper Penny in March, 2018 said:

We just came off a 9-day charter with Jim and Amanda Grant aboard the Copper Penny. It was our 4th charter with them and they don't miss a beat. Between the 5-star cuisine, great water sports activities, on-land excursions, the luxurious and flawless 56' Lagoon Catamaran Copper Penny, plus a bunch of new places visited, our love of the Virgin Islands continues to grow every year. It was also great to see that the Islands are back from the 2017 hurricanes. Thanks Jim and Amanda, see you in 2019!" - The P. family...Minnesota, Michigan and Colorado

A multi-repeat client and group of couples that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Copper Penny in February, 2018 said:

We had an amazing time as always with Jim and Amanda! The food was superb and the service exemplary! Even though the weather was a little cooler and more windy/rainy than is typical, and despite a luggage mishap via Seaborne at the start, Jim made sure that we never missed a beat and hit every point on our checklist and kept us comfortable. They are the perfect team and Copper Penny proved to be even better than our beloved Catsy. In a five star rating, I give them ten as usual! We love these guys like family!

Hi Lynne,

The charter was terrific. Jim and Amanda are great hosts and just great people. I really enjoyed chatting with Jim on a host of subjects. Jim's obviously a pro at captaining the yacht and did a great job of finding a good spot every evening away from the howling winds. He is great at keeping the energy going, both on board and on excursions on land. The Copper Penny is a beautiful sail boat and maintained in excellent shape. Amanda made some amazing breakfasts, lunches and dinners. I can't think of a single thing I'd suggest for improvement. It really was an all around great experience, and our first time to be in BVIs. We would not hesitate to spend another week on the water with Jim and Amanda.

All the best,

Clint B., Texas

    The Virgin Islands are ideal waters to dive in. The water temperatures remain constant between 79F in winter & 85F in summer months. Average dive visibility is 80Ft. The BVI has over 75 dive sites that range in depth from 50 – 85Ft. No wetsuit is necessary in the summer and a 3mm shorty is suitable for winter months. A dive skin or rash guard is advisable to wear anytime.

    With reefs teeming with large fish and healthy corals, the Virgin Islands are the ideal place to SCUBA dive. There are many shipwrecks to explore including the RMS Rhone and the Chikuzen. The water is crystal clear and most dive sites are protected from the waves providing for comfortable entry and exit from the water. The Virgin Islands sits atop a plateau so most dives are fringing reefs and shallow pinnacles, the reef face is protected by excellent mooring systems, maintained by the BVI's National Parks Trust.
