Thank you so much. It was awesome! The girls and I missed Colleen’s cooking this week already. The meals were amazing. Presentation, taste, variety, everything was perfect! Meals were our topic of discussion every day. Peter was great too. Diving was wonderful. Great sites and really cool commentary from Peter who is a very well read historian. We couldn't have been with two more gracious hosts...

yacht description
What an amazing yacht Skimmer is! At 77ft, she is huge! Designed for speed, she won the Trans Ocean South Africa to Brazil race in 2017 just after her launch. The best part of this yacht though is that there has been no compromise on interior design or luxury, so she really is the best of both worlds.

Although there are five cabins and can take ten, she is probably best for 8 guests. There are three king cabins, plus 2 queens - four of the cabins have en suite bathrooms, with the fifth cabin having a dedicated bathroom positioned just outside the cabin. The bathrooms are huge and very luxurious with separate shower stalls with overhead showers plus a hand shower and seat.

The salon area has lots of gleaming wood, and indoor seating/dining area. The galley will become the hub of the boat with bar stools and a great view of your chef preparing your gourmet meal. The outside area offers a large protected cockpit with outdoor dining and seating, plus the most popular spot the ‘third floor’ flybridge – perfect whilst sailing, even more perfect for sundowners!

Why book Skimmer – THE CREW – we have known Peter and Colleen for many years, and you would be hard pressed to find a more caring and professional couple. They will always go above and beyond to ensure you are having the time of your life. There is a superb collection of water sports equipment, plus onboard diving. Oh, and this yacht is unique here in the BVI so you'll always draw admiring glances!

crew profile
Profile of crew aboard charter yacht, SkimmerPeter was born in South Africa of German descent. As a teenager he loved the ocean and spent as much time as possible in or on the waves. He was an excellent competitor on the South African Sport Fishing Team. He was inspired by his interest in ships to join the South African Navy. After leaving the Navy he began a Salvage Company and grew to renown for salvaging many wrecks off the southern coast of Africa.

Peter has led a fascinating life, which with a little coaxing he will happily chat about. He retired from salvage, invested in plastics manufacture, and purchased a game and cattle farm. In 2002 he answered the call of the sea once again. In Mozambique he owned and operated a charter fishing company. Whenever the opportunity arose he crossed the Atlantic Ocean on boat deliveries. Eventually he settled in the Caribbean, captaining several of the finest charter yachts in the region...
