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: Starfish and her crew of Sam and Jen won "Runner Up for Best Yacht 52' Feet or Under" plus "Best Crew 52' Feet or Under" at the November, 2018 crewed charter yacht show in St. Thomas, USVI. Plus, at the July, 2018 crewed charter yacht show in Grenada, Chef Jen won 2nd place in the Chef's Culinary Competition and Captain Sam won 1st place in the Captain's Cocktail Competition.

Rates from $15,200 to $17,500. View availability and rate details.

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A two family group that we booked aboard 46' Catamaran Starfish for Thanksgiving 2020 said:

Everything was amazing on Starfish. Jen and Sam were absolutely wonderful and super accommodating to all of our neediness! Jen is an amazing chef…everything she made was so good. Her pomodoro shrimp might be the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my life…she served amazing food every single meal. We were all amazed at how great everything was. Sam had the perfect personality for us…always told pirate jokes when we were on the dinghy, which the kids really liked and are still repeating. Both Sam and Jen had very calming personalities that definitely helped us relax. We were super impressed at how clean Starfish is…definitely gives meaning to the phrase “ship shape”…absolutely immaculate. 

Thank you for everything!

Hi Tori and Lynne,

Tori, excellent recap of our experience with Jen and Sam, as they were the perfect combination of creative, calm and mindful! They were extremely professional and fun loving at the same time! Jen's cooking was OUT OF THIS WORLD... the chocolate souffle may be one of the best things I have ever eaten. Jen also did a themed dinner every evening which was super fun for all of the kids and the adults! She took pictures along the way and downloaded them to us before we left. Sam was a great entertainer with his jokes, and his accommodating personality was so much appreciated. Over the three days, he blew up an 8 person raft, a three person tube, and a floating mat then neatly stored everything each night. He lowered and raised kayaks and SUPs numerous times, along with the dinghy to accommodate our activity level.

We would highly recommend Jen and Sam and their beautiful Starfish!

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.

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.
