Welcome Aboard SANCTUARY


Introducing SANCTUARY, our Island Spirit 37 Catamaran with four queen size staterooms, two heads, spacious accommodations, fast and smooth sailing, with modern conveniences and plenty of shade! We are available anywhere in the Caribbean at weekly or daily "crewed" rates that are often less than the typical "bare boat" cost--and we include Captain Mark and a whole lot more! (See rates below)

Our home base is Prince Rupert Bay, Portsmouth, Commonwealth of Dominica where we specialize in day charters-- in Dominica and over to Les Saintes, Guadeloupe-- for the students and faculty of Ross University School of Medicine and for the luxury resorts and locals of Dominica. (See our page on www.Dominica.dm where we are a certified operator under the Discover Dominica Authority).
In March-April you can find us in the St. Barth/St. Martin area doing weekly charters around the St. Barth Bucket Regatta, where over 40 sailing yachts 100’ and longer race for 3 days and party all night!  You can charter Sanctuary for the Regatta or the weeks prior or after (for the St. Barth Les Voiles regatta?), it’s up to you!
In September-October, we head south to the Grenadines, for term charters from St. Lucia to Grenada, out of the hurricane region and with perfect moderate sailing conditions.
We can also be chartered in St. Martin (March) and Antigua (April) as we follow the major Caribbean Sailing Regattas and attend their parties and festivities!  These "racing chasing" trips offer per night single or double occupancy (instead of weekly) rates.

SANCTUARY weekly rates--8 days, 7 nights (other crewed and bareboat yachts offer 7 day rates, so because we charge by the night, you get an extra day FREE!):

High Season:
November 18 - April 30 = $5,500 / week for 4-6 people, $5,000/week for 3 and $4,500 for 2
Low Season: 
May 1 - November 17 = less $500
Relocation fee of $500 if pick up and drop off are different locations or do not involve Dominica if based there at your time.
Crew gratuity of 10% added to all charters.

Daily rates when and where available--does not include some fees and costs--are $135/person/night based on double occupancy, $195/person/night single occupancy.

Regatta rates--includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks--are $160/person/night double occupancy for 7-8 nights, $185/person/night for 4 nights, and $250 for single occupancy 4-8 nights.

Food is purchased on site and your party reimburses OBT at cost upon arrival for term charters.  (Not applicable for scheduled regatta charters.)  Menu and food and drink preferences are discussed prior to provisioning.  For a partial meal plan that includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks, add $30/person/day ($750-$1000/week), all guests must agree.  Captain Mark’s on board meals must be provided, but on shore meals for the Captain are optional, though having fun is NOT an option!

NOTE: Captain Mark is available to organize and captain other bare boat or private yachts ANYWHERE IN THE KNOWN WORLD should you want to charter somewhere else.

Term and Regatta Rates include: The spacious catamaran with 3 available double staterooms (sleeps 6 guests comfortably), Captain Mark's 30+ years of experience, insurance, water, fuel and mooring fees (customs, cruising and park fees are additional when applicable).
