Catamaran Viramar is a 2013, 56' Lagoon catamaran offering crewed yacht charters in the BVI and USVI. She features a fly-bridge deck, award winning crew, on-board diving and instruction, plus accommodations for up to 8 guests in 1 Queen Master Suite, 2 Queen cabins plus an upper/lower Twin cabin. Catamaran Viramar is a Carefree Yacht Charters mid-range, luxury option for families, couples, divers, foodies or special occasions.

Here's what Tyler & Erika told Carefree Yacht Charters about their favorite type of group: "Erika is a fan of adults that party, Tyler loves families and kids. Foodies are fun, we have had quite a few on our boat and Erika always winds up with new recipes to try. Honestly, variety is the fun of the job for us. This past season we have had tons of families with kids as young as four, grandparents and a 70 year-old diver, we have done a tandem with 14 drinking adults, we have had a kid with epilepsy, a women who preferred to wear no clothes at all, a mom with a disorder where she could not walk anywhere by herself, a honeymoon...the list goes on. We genuinely love them all!"

Noteworthy Details: Tyler & Erika won "Best Crew" for yachts 51' or under at the November, 2017 crewed charter yacht show in the USVI! They won this award while aboard their previous 47' catamaran.

Rates from $24,200 to $28,000. View availability and rate details.

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A family that we booked aboard Viramar in the Grenadines in August, 2021 said:


I don't know how to put into words how wonderful this trip was!!! All of my group as well as Erika were crying when we were dropped off at the Canouan airport. To start, it was very refreshing and assuring to know that you were involved with the entire process - from our initial call in October 2019, through the billing, sorting out the COVID challenges, and ultimately checking in to make sure we made it on the Viramar on August 11, 2021.... you have been a complete gem! Thank you.....

Erika and Tyler were absolutely perfect. My group began to joke around day 4 that we had to be careful what we said around the crew, because whatever we said, Erika and Tyler made it happen!! Erika and Tyler were so worldly and experienced.... our conversations ranged from politics to religion and even when there was a difference of opinion, the word for the day was "respect". Tyler, after watching my group dive, suggested and ultimately ensured that those who qualified, got Advanced Open Water certification while on the trip - and he made it fun!!!

The food? Holy cow!!! From poke to tacos to lobster to filet mignon....we never went without wonderful food!! And the alcohol was the same caliber!!! From Titos to beer to wine to McAllen!!!

Overall, I don't know what to say except my whole family misses - at a personal level - the Viramar, Erika and Tyler!!

Thank you Lynne....for everything!!

And please sign me up for your newsletter!! My partner in crime did her first blue water diver (recently certified) and, thanks to Tyler, is now, I think we will be scuba diving more in the future!! ;-)

Hi Lynne,

Howard and I want to thank you for everything! We thought you were amazing - totally organized and clear, helpful, full of info, great communication - all the way from beginning to end :) And, we very much appreciated your thinking about pushing the dates and being the go-between and making it happen - Tyler said it was your idea, and it made a huge difference - we had great weather!!

Our charter experience was really nice, and a perfect way to spend time with our adult kids and their partners. Viramar was immaculate, attractive, comfortable, very functional in terms of storage, and we appreciated having multiple outdoor spaces to hang out.

Tyler and Erika worked incredibly hard... it was very apparent that they wanted us to be happy and comfortable and safe. Erika is a creative chef and baker, and everything that came out of her galley was fresh and delicious. And, with our restriction of no fish and shellfish due to an allergy, she got really creative - I know that normally alot of what she makes is fish and shellfish but she was up for this challenge. We celebrated some birthdays onboard, and Erika went out of her way to help us celebrate with beautiful desserts and candles. She is a lovely and interesting person and it was really nice to be her guests! Tyler is completely full of energy. He was always encouraging fun and activities. We teased him that he is like a camp counselor. He was informative and patient when teaching us sailing and scuba. And, we felt very comfortable with him at the helm. It was nice to have "map time" at least once a day, and he was completely open to doing what we wanted and going where we wanted. He is also a wonderful photographer - the best pics we have were the ones he took! Both Erika and Tyler made us feel very welcome and at home...

Bottom line is we would highly recommend you and would highly recommend Viramar and Tyler and Erika!!

Carefree Yacht Charter was comprehensive in the booking, planning, and lead up to our charter. The process was made easy and we will certainly book again through Carefree for our next Charter.

Viramar, the boat, was pristine, spacious, it had all the amenities that we could want and more.

Tyler, the captain, was exceptionally competent as a boat captain and a dive master. We sailed and motored the entire BVI. Sailing was a priority for us and he included all the guests in the process. The diving was outstanding, Two of us became certified as basic divers and 3 more did advanced training. He is clearly a skilled diver and instructor. Our favorite part was his storytelling, he is very knowledgeable about the history of diving and the BVI in general.

Erika, our chef, fed us beyond our expectation. Every meal was delicious, perfectly presented and varied. She modified the menu to suit my daughter who was not a seafood fan, but after trying Erikas meals she is a convert! Erika was attentive, always offering drinks and snacks, and still tidying the boat and assisting Tyler with boating and diving.

It was a spectacular week, there in nothing about our experience that we would change, and I would highly recommend Tyler, Erika, Viramar and Lynne at Carefree Yacht Charters.

    All 7-day charters aboard Viramar include 5 dives for certified divers. Additional dives can be added based upon itinerary and captain’s discretion.


    This is a course for non-certified divers. This allows you to get your feet wet and enjoy the thrills of diving. The course includes a small classroom setting, some basic in-water skills training. Once you have mastered these skills, you will continue to a beautiful, shallow reef dive at a maximum depth of 40 feet. These dives can also count towards a Basic Open Water Scuba Certification but do not result in certification alone.


    We recommend starting your course before you come by finding a local dive shop to complete your classroom and online learning along with your pool work. When you get to Viramar, we do your check-out dives for certification in the beautiful, crystal clear waters here.

    Another option is for you to complete your basic certification course from start to finish with Tyler and Erika. Please contact crew directly for pricing and course requirements.

    Advanced courses, technical ratings and continuing education courses offered by request.
