Meet Your Crew!
Frank and Patty Fabian
Frank and Patty began sailing together 19 years ago, when they bought a 30’ monohull sailboat and plopped it in Lake Monroe, outside of Bloomington, Indiana. Their reasoning for doing so? It would be their week-end escape from hectic work-weeks and allow them time to pursue together an activity which captured the beauty and serenity of nature; sailing. Now living aboard their beautiful catamaran, Sunsplash, Frank and Patty are blessed to be exploring the wonders of the Virgin Islands each day, and realizing their dream in sharing this experience with you!
In pursuing their professional careers, in 2000, Frank and Patty (and their sailboat) relocated from the mid-West to Northern Virginia. Weekends and vacations now found them exploring the Chesapeake Bay and the North Atlantic coast from Virginia to New Jersey. Most years, they would also charter a sailboat and explore the islands of the Caribbean or the Gulf Islands in the Pacific Northwest. They knew then that one day they would live aboard full-time and combine their passion for sailing, entertaining and Patty’s culinary talent into an opportunity to share with others the joy of sailing.
That day came in March 2014, when Frank and Patty sold their home, both cars and most of their possessions, and took delivery of their new Leopard 48 catamaran in Florida. After upgrading the yacht, they sailed Sunsplash along the North Atlantic coast, back to their home waters of the Chesapeake. On November 3, 2014, they departed Portsmouth, Virginia, with the Caribbean 1500 Rally for Cruisers, bound for Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
Frank and Patty are experienced sailors, who place safety foremost in every activity. A former commercial/instrument-rated pilot with more than 3000 flight hours, Frank holds a USCG Master 100-ton license with Sailing Endorsement, and both Patty and Frank hold STCW endorsements and are qualified in First Aid/CPR. Patty is a life-long foodie, who has honed her talent by attending culinary classes, self-study and recipe experimentation.
Much like Patty and Frank’s need for an escape 19 years ago, perhaps its time for you to enjoy a memorable tropical island getaway! Come experience all the Caribbean has to offer aboard the luxury yacht, Sunsplash.

What We Like
Sunsplash is the newest catamaran in the Leopard fleet, and she is absolutely pristine. This is the perfect luxury Caribbean yacht charter for couples to indulge in the ultimate vacation. We love the forward seating area for enjoying the sailing in shaded comfort and for catching the island breezes with a sundowner and one of Patty’s delectable appetizers. Sunsplash’s long list of yacht charter amenities is an expression of the careful consideration that has been given to every nuance of guest comfort – even down to the custom made mattresses and sheets. We really love Patty’s gourmet menu that perfectly complements the 5 star accommodations on this elegant catamaran. Sunsplash truly does deliver the ultimate luxury Caribbean yacht charter experience.

From the moment we stepped aboard Sunsplash, we felt welcome, we felt safe and we felt pampered!
These three themes continued throughout the week onboard with Capt. Frank and Patty. Their planning of our week, including routes, stops/moorings and provisioning, were all meticulously detailed and organized for maximum benefit to their guests.
Sunsplash is immaculate and maintained to the highest standard. On Sunsplash, there is an abundance of room to lounge both fore and aft. There is plenty of shade if you want to escape the sun, however, there is also opportunity to sun on the trampolines or fiberglass in the bow area. For water sports, the boat is equipped with two stand-up paddle boards and snorkeling equipment. The staterooms were comfortable and well appointed. Each guest stateroom has an ensuite head/shower and the privacy/convenience was appreciated.
The culinary experience on Sunsplash, through Chef Patty’s food choices and pairings, was outstanding for every appetizer, meal and beverage. We loved Patty’s menu selections and presentation and we felt completely satisfied at the end of every meal. There is a water maker aboard and we found the drinking water quality to be exceptional. Capt. Frank was very helpful in organizing offshore activities/excursions as well as being eager to deliver us to shore and return us to the boat at our discretion. Throughout the week, Capt. Frank and Chef Patty listened to our requests and were very accommodating.
If you are looking for luxury with a crewed charter aboard a new 48 foot catamaran, look no further. Sunsplash earned a 6-Star rating from us!

Sunsplash experience exceeded our expectations!
Having bare-boated in the BVI’s in 2008 I have to say, this all inclusive Catamaran trip is the way to go! Capt. Frank & Chef Patty saw to our every need and this trip was 5-Star all the way! We were literally waited on every hour we were awake. We were welcomed aboard with warm cloths and cool drinks upon our arrival and things just went up hill from there!
Our crew was a “Safety First Team” and we always felt safe and secure aboard this pristine 48ft Catamaran. They handled the itinerary and we were delighted everyday with the sailing and activities planned for us. Even the land transportation was handled by Capt. Frank. While we were ashore, Patty would be in the galley working on yet another great appetizer and delicious meal! Presentation was always beautiful and we were left waiting to see what she would create next. The fine dinning was exceptional from variety, flavours and local flare. How did she keep everything so fresh while out on the water? Quiet evenings with soft music and drinks were the perfect end to each day!
Anyone can take a vacation, but the memories created aboard Sunsplash will last a lifetime!
