Catamaran Starfish

Catamaran Starfish is a 2008, 46' Robertson and Caine catamaran offering crewed yacht charters in the BVI and USVI during the winter months and Grenadines in the summer months. She features accommodations for up to 6 guests in 3 Queen cabins. Catamaran Starfish is a Carefree Yacht Charters affordable pick for families, couples or special occasions.

Here's what Sam & Jen told Carefree Yacht Charters about their favorite type of charter group: "We do not have a "favorite," but based on the post-charter reviews received from our guests, we can confidently say that we successfully and graciously host all types of different groups aboard STARFISH. We identify with groups of couples who are escaping the rat race for a week and want to relax and have fun. We also are parents who sailed extensively with our kids (who are now grown) and are used to having kids aboard (we do have a minimum age of 5). Proclaimed "foodies" have given us rave reviews as well. We enjoy the variety of having different mixes of guests!"

Noteworthy Details: Chef Jen of Catamaran Starfish won 2nd place in the Chef's Culinary Competition and Captain Sam won 1st place in the Captain's Cocktail Competition at the July, 2018 crewed charter yacht show in Grenada!

Rates from $10,000 to $16,500. View availability, rate details and current Special Offer.

What Our Carefree Clients Said About Us

A group of couples that we booked aboard 46' Catamaran Starfish in January, 2018 said: We loved the boat and crew on Starfish. This Cat was far better equipped than on our previous trip (booked by another broker) which was also fabulous. Thank you for always being available to me to answer our questions. We certainly appreciated that. Daryl H., South Carolina

Crew

Captain Sam Augspurger and First Mate/Chef Jen Augspurger are fun-loving lifelong sailors who spent many years exploring both the Caribbean and the South Pacific aboard their prior catamaran with their two (then) young teen daughters aboard. (Yes, families are welcomed on STARFISH!) Returning to the mainland and becoming landlubbers seven years after setting sail, Sam and Jen soon missed island life. As soon as both daughters were in college in Florida, they moved to the U.S. Virgin Islands. With the purchase of their current beautiful catamaran, STARFISH, they are ready to graciously host you and your friends and

    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A group of friends that we booked aboard 46' Catamaran Starfish in June, 2018, emailed this to the crew post charter with a copy to us:

    Good Morning Jen and Captain Sam,

    I want to take a moment to thank you for a unbelievably fantastic trip. Words cannot describe how enjoyable this trip was for all of us. I appreciate all of your efforts to insure this was the most memorable trip of a lifetime. You read our group perfectly and took us to spots we had not visited and knew we would enjoy. You took the extra time to educate us on each stop, which we all loved. Also, five star restaurants would be envious of the meals you served us.

    You both worked extremely hard to guarantee that we all had a fantastic time. It was, and is, greatly appreciated! The map and coozies will be a constant reminder of a memory that will be in our minds and hearts forever.

    We hope you get a little rest before your last 2 charters of the season. Once the season is over, have a safe trip to Grenada and relax and have fun; you have certainly earned it.

    Until we meet again, be safe.

    Bob & Kathy C., Ohio

    We loved the boat and crew on Starfish. Jen and Sam were great Hosts. We loved the food prepared by Jen and Captain Sam and his skill at navigating his boat were top notch! The cat was outfitted with luxuries we didn't expect including sunscreen and booties for snorkeling..I especially liked the bean bag chairs and the hammock! Dave enjoyed the SUP and Bo enjoyed kayaking..This Cat was far better equipped than on our previous trip (booked by another broker) which was also fabulous.

    Thank you for always being available to me to answer our questions. We certainly appreciated that.
