About Chris Brooks
I took a year off work in 2014 to buy a boat and sail it across the world. Now that I am back at work in Chicago and my catamaran is safe and sound in the Bahamas I am sharing it with you to offset my operating expenses! If you are considering chartering a catamaran in the Bahamas, look no further - you will not see a better quality boat in a better location for this great price!

The Ultimate GetAway
Yet another snow day?! Do you need a get away? I have always gone to resorts in tropical places, believing that chartering a boat was for the rich and famous, for the likes of Spielberg and people who own islands like Johnny Depp. This winter, I boarded the Cat Mer and spent an exquisite eight days swimming in the kind of blue waters pictured on your computer screen saver. Each morning, our private chef, Tess greeted us with steaming coffee, homemade cinnamon bun bread, mandalas of plump blueberries, slices of mango, peach, and kiwi, sizzling bacon and eggs anyway I liked them and of course a mimosa. Then a morning swim in crystal clear waters like glass navigated expertly by our Captain Bram. Lunch followed to the tune of fresh fish sandwiches, salads and chilled white wine. Evening was dinner at sunset with streaks of tangerine filling the sky only to be replaced by a tapestry of stars at sea and a soft breeze to sway you to sleep. From snorkeling grottos to collecting perfect pink conch shells—if you want to disconnect, lie on a catamaran over lapping waters and count starfish---you won’t want to come home. I promise. Luxury sleeping quarters, catering to your every whim, a new port every morning—chartering the Cat Mer is a recipe for complete relaxation and escape. It has my highest recommendation.
Amazing boat, amazing crew. This is how to sail!
We had an amazing stay on the Catmer. The boat is in awesome condition, the crew is very friendly, and it is a very laid back atmosphere. Tess is an amazing chef, I am still thinking about the fried grouper sandwich she made 3 weeks later! We had bad weather a few days, but we didn't care, we just played games all day and night with our friends and the crew. Get them to teach you the game "Hot Dice"! It was a great time and we can't wait to do it again. Thank you so much to Tess and Bram!
This experience exceeded my expectations! We had the most amazing time as a family. Bram was an incredible captain who brought us to the most amazing places. Tess an exquisite cook - each meal exceeded the next! They truly made us feel so comfortable! The boat itself... simply perfect! Comfortable, clean, just wonderful!
Ultimate trip in paradise floating on a 5 star all-inclusive hotel!
My group of four contacted the boat's owner and promptly received a response. He was exceptionally
helpful making our sailing trip tailor-made for our interests and expectations. Every question was answered fully and every detail was attended to. Nothing was overlooked! He gave us ideas of different itineraries, things to do and where to eat if so desired. Our chosen route was from St. Thomas USVI to Virgin Gorda BVI with many beautiful stops in-between.
Via taxi, we arrived at the Yacht Club and we were instantly greeted by Captain Bram, an absolutely delightful young man who gave us a tour of the catamaran and safety instructions. We were then introduced to Chef Tess who made us feel immediately welcome and offered us whatever we liked after a long day of travelling. They both are very gracious, fun and incredibly attentive. AND, the catamaran was so clean - spotless in fact, and so very comfortable!
My group loved every moment of our adventure! What made this already exciting vacation even better was the crew. Chef Tess' gastronomical offerings were much better than the restaurants we visited. Her food was, simply put, incredibly delicious and artfully presented! (Yes, we are "foodies")! The idyllic scenery of the islands was breathtaking but Tess' creations were what we looked forward to. How a person can cook up such tasty delights in a small and sometimes swaying kitchen was beyond us! Not only was she the chef but also waitress, dishwasher, house keeper (beds made daily) and crew. Everything she did was to perfection!
Captain Bram is such a knowledgeable man with years of sailing experience. His knowledge isn't just restricted to sailing and the Virgin Islands. Absolutely not. He is a world traveller who is well educated in many subjects and is a quiet and captivating conversationalist when engaged.
The amazing thing is that both Captain Bram and Chef Tess would almost disappear in order to give us our private time and uncannily re-appear when we needed something. That in itself was quite a feat! They really made our all-inclusive adventure unforgettable.
Would we do it again? Would we recommend this? Yes, yes and a most positive yes! You will have the time of your life!!!
