Catamaran Grace

Catamaran Grace is a 2020, 52’ Lagoon catamaran offering crewed yacht charters in the BVI and USVI. She features accommodations for up to 8 guests in 1 Master Queen Suite plus 3 Queen cabins. Catamaran Grace is a Carefree Yacht Charters affordable pick for families, couples, divers or foodies.

Here's what ​Joseph & Britta​ told Carefree Yacht Charters about their favorite type of charter group: "Over the years we have had a mix of couples and families and we love both. We understand that people want to unwind when they are on vacation so we offer a wide array of activities with the options of lounging and relaxing on deck or a sandy beach. We definitely love to have foodies on board so we can showcase our abilities in the galley.​"​

Rates from $23,000 to $26,000. View availability and rate details.

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A family group that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Grace in July 2020 for a USVI-only charter said:

Hi Lynne, Just wanted to pass along a quick note and let you know we had a wonderful time with Joseph and Britta on Grace. Thank you so much for helping us bring the charter together. We look forward to booking again in the future.

A family that we booked aboard Grace in July 2020 for a USVI-only charter said:

Hi Lynne, your ears must be burning. I was just getting my thoughts together to compose an email to you as follow up from the trip. Will send something out tonight or tomorrow. Bottom line: fabulous experience, meals that were so off the chart good that I don't have enough descriptive superlatives to do them justice and super attentive service aboard a truly beautiful boat. More to come - but want to thank you for the pairing - you nailed it. Also - newsletter sounds great.

Hi Lynne,

Few thoughts that might help.

-Lynne of Carefree Yacht Charters was the reason the McCarthy family got connected to Grace and her Crew. Both Lynne and her husband were incredibly responsive, by far the most 'on top' of the communication protocols over all the other brokers I reached out to at the start of the process

-Lynne is the perfect balance of authority, active listener and deal closer that makes an expense of this magnitude feel 'comfortable' and something that will provide deep value (I mean, let's face it, after travel, diving, additional gratuity, and week expense we just bought a really nice used car 🙂) Having said that, there is no doubt in my mind the value equation is totally on the side of the guests when it comes to Grace

-Also, very grateful that the 'owner, operator, clearing house and broker' were understanding of the COVID19 situation, the nuisance of limited travel (no BVI) and the ongoing concerns and uncertainty in the overall economy. I felt like I had a partner who was as invested in this experience as my family.

-Grace is really the perfect platform for a week with 5 or 6 folks

-Grace offers the opportunity to convene as a group, or sneak away to her various corners and be alone with a book for any period of time - our favorite spot was sitting up on the fly bridge - either underway, or on mooring.

-Grace's cabins are super functional and never felt confining in any way.  Tons of natural light, fantastic linen and design features in each cabin along with separate heads was really fantastic

-This was our only experience with this type of vacation, so I can't comment on any other vessel or crew - however, I will not do another week on a catamaran unless it's with Britta and Joseph

-Britta has a super easy personality with her guests, she 'gracefully' moves between speaking "adult" "teenager" and "kid" - a rare gift

-Britta has some kind of corner on the best rum cocktails - can't say this enough as most rum drinks in the islands are full of sugar and junk - the drinks that come out of the bar are as extraordinary as the food out of the galley - she also is great about making special drinks for those under 21 - so that they feel like part of the party crew

-Chef - so - this one is tough to describe - over the last few days folks have asked me about how "my vacation was"...  I answer with - "I enjoyed a meal of (fill in the blank - but let's say scallops, or braised oxtail, or tuna tartar) each night with my children, and watched them devour the cuisine. 14, 12 and 10-year old's now have a point of view, an interest in and an appreciation for real fine dining. They tried everything Joseph prepared (sure, they weren't perfect and one day broke down when they saw the pizza boat)... This, for me, was a huge deal. I was really proud of the kids and very thankful for Joseph's abilities in the galley and Britta's attention to service.  

-Water toys were greatKids wake boarded all over (where legal) the USVI with either Captain Joseph at the helm of the tender or Britta Britta and Joseph led dives and snorkeling excursions (always followed by a killer drink or snack)

-Did I mention the food? Fresh baked goods each morning, fresh homemade bread each evening... I mean COME ON!!!!!  

-Taco Tuesday with theme music and homemade masa tortillas Zoie is a huge hit and was a welcome participant in our adventure

-We did have a few mechanical challenges - which limited our ability to sail long distances - but we overcame them and again, that was another life lesson for the kids

Hope some of these points will help the next family who is attempting to make a decision on the vacation of a lifetime Lynne.

Thank you much, You did a really wonderful job.

Crew

Joseph and Britta grew up a world apart but ended up finding each other and true love in the beautiful Virgin Islands. He grew up on a small family farm in the Pacific Northwest and she grew up with her toes in the sand on the white sandy beaches of Florida. Before moving to the Caribbean, Joseph received degrees the Culinary Arts and Patisserie and Baking from Western Culinary Institute in Portland Oregon. In 2009, he packed his bags for the islands where he immediately bought and resided on his new boat in the Virgin Islands. Britta came to St
