Catamaran Trance Atlantic: Captain Kevin Williams & Taylor Davis

Catamaran Trance Atlantic Crew

Kevin and Taylor are accomplished sailors, with an adventurous spirit, and a professional service
background, which they will deliver on every charter! After meeting on separate day charter
boats in 2016, Kevin and Taylor’s love for sailing and being on the ocean brought them together.
Since then, they have traveled halfway around the world together, meeting new people and
learning about different cultures, bringing back, unique experiences for their charter guests. With
their eye-opening stories, ultimate adventures, and additionally, having an end goal of sailing the world, you are sure to be intrigued from the start. They are extremely detail oriented,
personable, professional, and will make anyone’s time on the water with them, wanting more!

Captain Kevin, growing up in Michigan with family in the industry, he was nearly born on the
water. Early on, he found his passion, at only 14 he had his first job, at a marina; quickly,
learning the ins and outs of the boating world, he then found himself applying managerial and
mechanical skills to his work. Studying civil engineering, at Western Michigan University, he
could never fully pull himself away from the water, which is what led him to The Virgin Islands.
While then, mastering luxury charters and sailing the near coastal waters, Kevin, was in love,
and for the next 4 years became very proficient all across the industry. Being a 100 ton Master
Captain with Leadership and Safety certificates, Kevin exemplifies all the qualities you want and
expect in a competent captain. In addition to sailing, an avid fan of fishing, water sports, food,
and adventure, he is sure to make your vacation experience, on the waters he loves, extremely
memorable for years to come; and maybe even teach you a thing or two, to take home to your
friends.
Born and raised on the island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, chef/mate Taylor is a local
through and through. Her family established one of the first-day sail charter companies on the
island, which helped mold her passion and establish knowledge for boats, the ocean, and
customer service. What started with just working weekends as a child, slowly grew into a fulltime
position and then eventually a partner in running the company with her mother until the
company’s sale. From local cuisine, island history, customer experience, event planning, & local
dos & don’ts, Taylor has you covered. Creating a fun, once in a lifetime experience is her goal
from start to finish. While in college, Taylor studied nutrition and began teaching herself the
values of different food sources, and is now a skilled gluten free/dairy free cook and baker. Her
favorite dishes to prepare go back to her Caribbean roots, with a variety of seafood and vegetable
options. To accommodate her guest’s food preferences, Taylor communicates pre-charter to
assure a menu everyone will enjoy.

Happy New Years!!

Kevin & Taylor,

Thank you so much for making our Honeymoon/1st wedding anniversary everything we were
dreaming it could be! From the first moment we stepped on, we felt nothing but welcomed. It
was abundantly clear from our first stop in St. John, the love you both have for the islands and
the love the people here have for you. That made us feel so welcome everywhere we went. We
wish we had one favorite memory but this book is too small to list them.
Taylor, the food you cooked was tremendous and we enjoyed all of it. And you are hands down
the BEST mooring ball hookarrr these islands have ever seen.
Kevin, thank you for navigating us safely all around the islands and making a great dinghy boat
Captain. The drinks were terrible. 😉

You guys make a great team, we have no doubt you will make lasting memories for tons of other
guests. The only cons, and there were two: 1) We never had the world famous stir fry. 2) Not
meeting Captain Jack Sparrow, he was sooo close! 🙂 hehe

We walked on this boat nervous about what we might encounter and we leave with lasting
memories and two new friends! May wind and love always fill your sails! Thank you again for
EVERYTHING!!

Arrrr revoir for now,
Lindsey & James Rutherford

Wonderful Recent Vacation On The Catamaran Trance Atlantic

Dear Brenda and Derek,

I am writing to tell you about our wonderful recent vacation on The Catamaran Trance Atlantic with Adam and Emily.  From the moment we boarded Adam’s skill as a captain was evident. He always ensured our safety. He confidently dealt with any issues while maintaining a calm and friendly air.

As for Emily, I don’t have any words that would due justice to describe her warmth and genuine joy in being our host. She is a master chef and we have never eaten so well for each meal all those days in a row. We were amazed at the magic she performed in that tiny kitchen.

We are so grateful to them for being our hosts. They made our vacation infinitely more enjoyable. I would recommend them to anyone!! They are definitely the A team!!!

Thank you

Trish and Jimmy M

Best. Vacation. Ever!

Hey Guys….

I wanted to follow up and let you all know how thrilled we were with our vacation in St Thomas. It truly was the best vacation ever! The boat, the snorkeling, the water, the sights, the beaches, the sunsets, the full moon, the rainbows, the drinks, the food… all were truly incredible…. but we unanimously agreed that the best part of the vacation was Emily and Adam! Emily’s cooking was AH-MAZ-ING! Honestly, all of us were spellbound every time she put plates in front of us (and we are a group of foodies who eat out all the time)! Adam took care of us and the boat like a champ. The two of them were quite the team. We enjoyed every minute with them.

I want to thank you both for helping us arrange for this great vacation! We hope to do it again! Thanks so so much guys!
