A Great Crew Makes A Caribbean Sailing Vacation Unforgettable
Meet Captain Skipper Hylton and First Mate/Chef Amy
After spending just a few minutes with Hylton and Amy you will pick up on their passion for the ocean. Growing up on the East Coast of South Africa meant their childhoods were both full of outdoor adventures, with family and friends, along with the coastline. Hylton and Amy have just come from the South Pacific where they have spent the last 3 years running “Whale Swimming”, SCUBA diving, Line Fishing and Spearfishing charters for resorts and companies in Tonga.
Living in the remote islands has taught them a lot about enjoying and appreciating the simple things in life. Their stress-free lifestyle is contagious and something we all deserve to experience, especially on a Caribbean vacation. They are most happy when they have the opportunity to share these beautiful waters with their guests and they go to great depths to unveil treasures that many others would never see.
Amy studied Marine Biology in South Africa and went on to do her honors. She is very confident in the water and will always be willing to take guests out for a snorkel to find some interesting creatures or critters to observe. She loves to share any knowledge to inquisitive minds, no matter how young or old. Her patience and bubbly personality make her an instant hit, especially with children.
Hylton has covered a few passages in his sailing career and hopes to own a yacht one day. He loves spearfishing and free-diving and would be willing to give anyone interested some tips on free-diving. His charisma and enthusiasm make him a perfect fit on this yacht and will surely make all on board feel at home.
Amy and Hylton both enjoy spending time in the kitchen. They have picked up recipes from the South Pacific and South Africa that they will share with you during your stay.
The crew cannot wait to have you on board. There will be many stories told and laughs had, but most of all they cannot wait to share our beautiful oceans with you.
What We Like About This Charter Yacht
53 feet is a nice size for a charter catamaran, but Karizma feels especially spacious because of the towering headroom which makes every interior space feel gigantic. If you have big and tall people in your family or group charter -Karizma is the best choice. We also love that Karizma is a family boat and the owner really understands what makes a BVI crewed yacht charter special, outfitting Karizma with all of the fun toys that make a family Caribbean sailing vacation really memorable.
The crew also sets Karizma apart from other luxury catamarans. “Hylton and Amy have charter experiences that have taken them all over the globe. They love to share their appreciation for life under the sea as well as life on and above the sea.”
Green Boating Aboard Karizma

It Was Truly a Trip of a Lifetime
We took a trip aboard Karizma. It couldn’t have been better!
From minute one to the last minute of our trip, our Captain made us feel at home onboard with an easy going, friendly charm. Right away he showed us around the yacht, which in itself is amazing: plenty of space to move about, seek privacy, lounge comfortably, sleep like a baby, and even take a refreshing shower.
The comfort and luxury of Karizma was highlighted by the quality of our meals. Nourishment somehow arrived just when we were hungry and made us feel like we were eating in a high end restaurant at every meal. It was fresh, healthy and satisfying food that always included dessert which we devoured in earnest to fuel our many adventure filled days.
The crew felt like old friends after this trip. We felt completely safe with them as they proved to be competent sailors. The captain patiently and graciously showed us the ropes and gave us the opportunity to pitch in with sailing as we desired. We hold both of them in high regard and find ourselves missing their company now that the trip has come to an end.
Our days felt easy, revolving around what we wanted to do, with no rushing or pressure. The Captain gave us solid advice and told many a story about the BVI’s both from natural and historical perspectives as well as the real truth about living there. He enabled us to get a genuine feel for the “life” many of us only dream of. The captain personally led us on hikes, and took us to amazing spots we likely wouldn’t find on our own. From Tarpon feeding on Saba Rock, extraordinary banana daiquiris, a tour of Anegada by truck complete with a picnic on a beautiful secluded beach…and many more.
We left Karizma feeling we had a satisfying mix of pleasure, relaxation and adventure. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and not one of us wanted to wake up from our dream vacation on Karizma. We will be back!
We Had a Wonderful Time!
Outstanding Quality of Service and Food on Karizma!
I have been waiting for a few years for this wonderful trip. It truly is a dream come true for me…I feel very lucky and blessed to be able to be a part of such a magical trip! Thanks to the crew you, this week was filled with lots of laughs, adventure, fantastic food and an atmosphere of pure relaxation! Thank you for your warmth and love and hospitality! ~Alex and JF
This is my 5th time in the USVI/BVI’s. We experienced the Karizma for the first time and were more than happy with our choice. We’ve experienced other cats and the quality of service and the food of the Karizma is better than most. Our hosts went out of there way to make our trip in paradise even more enjoyable. Thank you to the crew for their attentive service, their fabulous food and good stories! ~Robert and Sonia
The Crew Spoiled Us All!
With 3 boys life is rarely about me ☹! But, on this trip, the crew spoiled us all! I Loved the long days of sailing and watching Will learn to Slalom. I will take the “Pirate Game” with me on all future family vacations. What fun we had on Karizma! The crew showed us all the hot spots and entertained us with games, stories, and jokes. The meals were delicious and the views spectacular! It was a great holiday. ~ Foster Family

Beyond Awesome – The Most Fantastic Trip Ever!
The tubing, wake boarding, snorkeling, swimming, jumping off the top of the boat, paddle boarding and everything else were beyond awesome!
