Sailing enthusiasts, Dirk and Sandy have won many regattas throughout the BVI.

Dirk is a USCG certified Captain and lifelong sailor with a special love for all things nautical. He started sailing solo at 5 years old and has been leading yacht charters around the world for over 25 years! Some of his favorite destinations are French Polynesia and the British Virgin Islands where he first visited in 1981. He is an avid water sports enthusiast and will be happy to lead you on SCUBA dives to the best locations, snorkeling, tubing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, kayaking, SUP, deep sea fishing, and even provide an introduction to kiteboarding. Dirk also has a Mavic Pro drone aboard and will be happy to record breathtaking footage of your vacation aboard Catatonic.

Sandy began sailing in college and has never looked back! She loves entertaining and introducing people to the seafaring lifestyle! She likes to get creative in the galley and serve up tasty snacks and treats to the guests.

In 2007, Dirk and Sandy founded Cool Cat Charters, in the Virgin Islands, where S/V Catatonic is the flagship of the fleet. She enjoys a reputation as one of the most popular, most fun and busiest charter sailing yachts in the US and British Virgin Islands. Catatonic, an owner’s version Lagoon 440 was lost in Hurricane Irma, but undeterred Catatonic 500 will carry on the legacy of vacations of a lifetime!

After sailing Catatonic from the Caribbean to New York in 2010, they decided to expand their charter service to their home waters in New York City and Long Island Sound and introduced Knotty Kitty and Knotty Tigress into the fleet for luxury day charters in New York Harbor and Long Island Sound.

I Can’t Say Enough Great Things About Captain Robert and Crew

Our family can’t thank you enough for recommending the Catatonic for our vacation. We had the most incredible time, each day was a great adventure that I really can’t describe appropriately. Each snorkel spot was a little different than the last. We docked in cool spots with exactly the sort of the things we like to do. Snorkeling with huge Tarpon, bouldering and jumping off big rocks or big boats, colorful fish and coral, hiking and playing on pristine beaches etc.

I can’t say enough great things about Captain Robert. Robert’s knowledge of the islands from a historical standpoint as well as knowing where the fun stuff was amazing. He just knew what we would love and gave us a bunch of it. We did so much it’s hard to write it all here, however some highlights besides the great snorkel spots was taking a great cab ride for dinner from Leverick Bay to Hog Heaven which ranked as my favorite spot.

This was topped the next day of course when we rolled into Cane Garden Bay and had a great sunset, happy hour and night listening to exactly the type of music from a one man band which ironically is much like my favorite guy near my beach house which I had described to Robert. The Captain went beyond any expectations we had for our trip. I have already spoken to several of my friends to refer them to Catatonic for their Caribbean crewed yacht vacations.

The chef’s meals and everything she brought to the table was amazing and she fit right in with the family.
She was always figuring out what would make each day a great experience with local flavor. Our preference sheet was far exceeded with great meals every day and night.

The tough thing going forward from here will be, “How do we top this vacation?”. Truly nothing will compare thanks to the great boat and crew. They made us feel so comfortable and right at home from the moment we stepped on the boat until we stepped back off. It was great to make 2 new friends while vacationing on a crewed yacht charter in the Caribbean with the family.

Grins and Memories for a Lifetime

Get Catatonic on your Caribbean crewed yacht charter! | iYachtClub

Guests leave a Thank You note for their crew aboard Catatonic.

We enjoyed being on the boat, going to the different spots, letting me sail a bit (absolutely loved that return from Anegada to Marina Cay), and generally “taking our foot off the brake” for a while as we had fun down there with you all. Captain Robert you showed us so much – from the busier anchorages in Jost Van Dyke to the more remote spots like Brewer’s Bay – it really checked all the boxes. Like I said, it was a wonderful feeling mid-week to wake up and not know what day it was.

Being on a charter boat as crew is a tough job, but Capt. Robert and Maya you both completely exceeded our expectations. I can’t say enough about that. We had great laughs, but with your calm confidence and how you both professionally executed the job and made it look effortless, you both enabled us to have a spectacular week aboard Catatonic and leave with grins & memories for a lifetime!

Additionally, I really appreciate the recommendations for our post-charter time on St. John. Morgan’s Mango was terrific – we just loved the different flavors of the different dishes there. We rented a car, drove the island, and spent a little time on some of the North shore beaches. And yes, a Skinny Legs burger was consumed!

We Loved Every Single Minute of It!

Get Catatonic on your next Caribbean crewed yacht charter | iYachtClubAbsolute best vacation ever! Not sure how we will ever top it! The Captain and crew made it GREAT and memorable! They were the perfect match for our group!! Jen is a fabulous chef and Rooster really knows everything that there is to know about sailing and the BVI’s! They could not have been more accommodating.

We took tons of pictures and had tons of fun. We can’t thank you enough for your suggestions and help along the way. It truly was the best way to spend the week and experience all that the BVI’s have to offer. From Willie T’s, to Soggy Dollar and all the drinks, bars, fun and games in between, WE LOVED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF IT!! Thanks for the best vacation EVER!

We could not have asked for a better captain or chef! You truly pampered us beyond belief. The stops were fantastic – loved Norman Isle, the bubbly pool, kayaking, snorkeling, trunk beach! And the food was incredible. You are truly our favorite restaurant chef ever! You have the perfect balance of allowing family time and yet when we are with you, you feel like family too. Thanks for the best vacation ever! We will never forget our week on Catatonic of the happy memories together.

We had a blast on Catatonic

THIS is how a vacation should be – totally relaxing, amazing food, great tunes, awesome sailing, WOW! This is the first time I’ve ever seen my husband not wear a watch – THAT’s how relaxed we were! We can’t wait to come back!
