Catamaran Genesis

Catamaran Genesis is a 2000, 50' Voyage catamaran offering crewed yacht charters in the BVI and USVI. She features accommodations for up to 8 guests in 3 Queen cabins plus an additional Queen cabin that is accessed through an overhead hatch on the forward deck. Catamaran Genesis is a Carefree Yacht Charters affordable pick for families, couples or special occasions.

Here's what Brad & Kristi told Carefree Yacht Charters about their favorite type of charter group: "Our favorite group is a family of 4-6, children that are at least through kindergarten and can swim, adventurous and like to play outside, that like food and are willing to try new things. We value guests that are looking for a memorable vacation with family or simple downtime away from it all over guests seeking the most luxurious experience. We especially enjoy groups that are celebrating life’s milestones (birthdays, anniversaries, etc)."

Noteworthy Details: Chef Kristi won "Honorable Mention for Best Entree" at the Culinary Awards during the November, 2018 crewed charter yacht show in St. Thomas, USVI.

    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A multi-generational family that we booked aboard 50' Catamaran Genesis in June, 2018 said:

    Hi Lynne,

    First of all it was absolutely fabulous. From the time we arrived ( early) we were welcomed with open arms. They took care of our bags and gave us some suggestions of places to walk to around the marina. Both Brad and Kristi were personable, welcoming and knowledgeable. After we walked around a bit they had finished their work and agreed to join us for dinner. We had a great time chatting about past sailing trips, hurricanes and family. They were delightful company and we had a great evening. The next morning they made us an amazing breakfast. Even though they really didn't need to. We waited for the rest of our group to arrive and talked about plans they had mapped out. They asked about various areas we had been to on previous trips. And we talked about the vision we had for the trip. We especially wanted Hailey (9) and Lucas (5) to have a great experience. Brad and Kristi did everything they could to envolve them. They taught them sailing, let Hailey drive the dinghy, and arranged for many child centered activities. They were both so accepting of children on their boat. Our daughter had planned many special anniversary surprises and they facilitated them all joining in the fun and making it even more special. Our granddaughter, Hailey was attached to both of them. She snorkeled with them, drove the dinghy, loved going on the towable. They knew where the best fish viewing was, let the kids feed leftover scraps to attract rays, baracuddas and other varieties of fish. Found great snorkeling spots and even let them help cook. One evening they had a play date with the kids while we went ashore for dinner. While the restaurant was lovely all of us commented that our food on board was far superior. The food was tailored to the children but gave them tastes of the adults meals to try. They made special entrees for one of our members who is dairy free. Each meal was a gourmet masterpiece featuring sauces and excellent presentation. Each day there was a signature cocktail. They were tasty, unique and even adapted to one persons nonalcoholic tastes. Each day were were welcomed with an agenda for the day. And a preview of the evenings cocktail. Lucas would watch horsdoerve making each day and come upstairs and announce what was being served. It was fabulous in presentation and hard to pass up. All food was natural, healthy and expertly cooked. I am not a huge fish eater but I devoured all my dinners due to the sauces and presentations. Meals included filet mignon covered with carnelized onions and sauce lobster. And Mahi mahi. Fresh herbs grown on board accompanied the food. They even baked a cake and made perfect risotto - not easy in a gourmet kitchen let alone at sea! We all loved the food and this group is a bunch of foodies who know their way around the kitchen

    The catamaran was fabulous. It was decorated and fully stocked. They had lots of water toys and a huge floating lily pad for kids to burn off energy. The beds were comfortable and had storage. The bathrooms were for each cabin. The kids bathroom had a valve problem halfway thru the trip. They ordered the part but it didn't have time to come. The kids still could use the bathroom just went down the hall and used their parents sink for hand washing. Not a big deal.

    The front trampoline equipped with four beanbags was perfect for watching the scenery during sails. Many options were given each day as far as activities ashore or water play from the boat. Both Brad and Kristi are great sailors and extremely capable of anchoring and getting anchor balls.

    While both of them tried to stay in the background our family wouldn't let them. They were too much fun! Hailey adored snorkeling with Both of them. And they even helped us with a pinata one night ashore. All the while Kristi took photos of everything and as a parting gift gave us a Zip drive with tons of photos that we all were in! It was amazing and so personal.

    I don't know if we plan to sail in the BVI again but if so wouldn't do it any other way! We will definitely be recommending this trip to everyone. Lynne, you managed to save this trip by securing Genises when our other boat was demolished in the hurricane. You handled everything and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. Everything was organized for us and it really made for a relaxing time.

    Honestly, we all will treasure the memories of this trip. If I've left anything out don't hesitate to ask. Of course you can add us to the newsletter. And I hope I can forward those to interested friends

    Thanks again. It was beyond our expectations...and our expectations were very high
