Penny's personal opinion

Why book G3– SPACE – This boat has an enormous amount of space for a 51ft boat.  Every nook and cranny has been optimised with guests comfort in mind. There are great communal areas but also spaces where you can have a nap without being disturbed! Added to this is the fantastic crew who go above and beyond for their guests – charter of a lifetime, box ticked!

    This experience has been so amazing! When my friends Regina and Jim told me our St. Barths trip was cancelled… but plan B was a charter sailboat in the USVI I was so happy – but – after spending a week with Nikki and Karl  – I am overjoyed with happiness and the wonderful memories we have all made together. All the food and drinks and fun will be a memory that I will never forget! The G2 is lucky to have such a fantastic chef and captain in Nikki and Karl! They anticipated our every need before we even knew we needed it! We are all planning our next trip on a charter sail boat.  ❤

    One of the best vacations I have ever taken. Always wanted to charter a boat and sail the virgin islands. It did not disappoint!! Thanks to the outstanding efforts and skills of Captain Karl and Chef Nikki!! Sailing with Karl and Nikki was like being with good friends. So warm and friendly. Karl put together an awesome itinerary. He always knew the best place to go based on his extensive knowledge of these beautiful islands.

    And the food!! OHH The Food!! Every meal whether it was breakfast, lunch, appetizers, dinner or dessert was amazing!! Chef Nikki was incredible!! What a great team they made!! I can’t imagine a better crew. I certainly hope that my wife and I can do this again someday and if we do, you can bet we will be calling Karl and Nikki!!
    Thank you for such a wonderful experience. We love you guys!! 💙

  • Regina

    Best friends… Best Captain… Best Chef..
    What else is there? We felt so safe with Karl at the helm and Nikki had perfect timing, perfect plating perfect and perfect menus! Can’t wait to recommend G2 to all my clients and friends. Thanks for an amazing week!

    We had such an amazing week. Thank you for your attention to details and the care we received.
    See you again soon I hope.

  • Overall, how would you describe your charter?_The charter was outstanding in every way. It was relaxing and we felt pampered in all respects. The boat was in great shape and the staff made everything perfect for us.

    Was the crew professional, accessible and accommodating? Carl and Nikki were very professional and accommodating. I can’t believe all they were able to put out of such a small galley. The food was incredible and Nikki was wonderful about making sure that everybody was satisfied with meals and drinks. For his part Carl was great about offering to take us snorkeling or into the beach, etc. Both are very social and we enjoyed their company.

    Was the yacht well maintained? Very well maintained; clean and everything worked

    How did you find the quality and presentation of the meals? Shockingly above my already high expectations. We ate better than we would have had we found the best restaurants in every port. Great variety and balance as well as high quality.

    Were you satisfied with the cruising itinerary? We were restricted to USVI due to COVID but Carl made the best of it by offering different locations and fighting poachers for the best moorings. There wasn’t a place in the USVI that I wanted to go to that we didn’t visit.

    As a single family for a week, there were plenty of personalities and needs to field.
    The youngest, Norah and Bella wanted plenty of watersports while the rest wanted a combination of relaxation and snorkeling. You two were able to give a wide variety of activities for all of us to be able to have the most fantastic vacation we could have asked for. We began our trip off with a bang at Buck Island where we immediately saw turtles and were able to snorkel and old shipwreck. That night began a string “out-of-this-world’ meals via Nikki. Nearly all of us finished every meal, and don’t even get us started on the desserts…it was a brawl to see who could sneak a spoonful of the others dessert when they weren’t looking. We will be dreaming of this food for months…years!

    Below was our itinerary and a brief description of what we did.

    Charlotte Amalie :
    Began the adventure here where we were picked up and greeted with celebratory Prosecco.
    Buck Island:
    Snorkeling around a shipwreck
    Christmas Cove:
    Ordered lunch from a boat equipped with a pizza oven – yes, that’s right…pizza…from a boat!
    Maho Bay:
    An incredible number of turtles were found here.
    Caneel Bay:
    Honeymoon Beach was easily swimmable with the most beautiful water you will see.
    Little Lameshur Bay:
    Wonderful snorkeling can be found around the edges of the bay.
    The most incredible stargazing can be seen here.
    Coral Bay:
    Limeout is here and perfect for lunch – great craft cocktails and out-of-this-world tacos.
    Salt Pond Bay:
    Luckily, Karl has far reaching friends who saved us a mooring for this bay that you cannot miss out on.
    Magens Bay:
    We ended our trip here with a day of water sports (tubing, paddle boarding and sub-winging).
    We saw plenty of turtles and even saw Dolphins!
    A huge thank you to this incredible crew, Nikki and Karl! We could not have asked for a better crew…thank you thank you for a vacation that we will not forget.

  • Now is time to leave, and we don’t want to go. Who would want it?
    Now, we will keep in our backpacks of unforgettable memories…
    You are an incredible captain & chef but more than that you are amazing people. You both work so hard to make our trip unforgettable.
    How will we forget all the unique dishes, 5 stars.
    How can we forget the brownies or the lemon pie with gluten-free crust (I didn’t even know you can do that).
    How can we not remember the fish tacos with the hot sauce.
    Karl, how can we forget your wisdom about the sea and the amazing sailing stories from your grandpa and dad. Thank you for protecting us, watching over in any swimming we did. Your eyes were over us like a protector angel.
    Nikki, how can we forget your beautiful smile in the morning. How can we forget the unique breakfasts like from a magazine picture. How can we forget your creations. Now I’m in trouble coming back at home and Gabby ask me “How can I repeat Nikki’s meals?”
    Guys, do you know why it was such a magnificent week? Because you put so much love and your whole heart into what you do for us. So in the day of gray skies after a long day of crazy passengers, look at each other and say loudly “We are the Greatest! The Greatest Two!”
    You are the best! Thank you for your love, dedication, and beautiful smiles. We will carry these forever in our hearts.
    We wish you smooth sailing, constant winds, and beautiful days.

  • Gabs

    Thank you Nikki & Karl for everything!
    Karl, you have taught me more than my teachers have taught me this whole month. Thank you for being so incredibly patient throughout this week with our constant lateness & bickering. I hope I can hear more of your music soon!

    Nikki, I swear I have been blessed by the gods for being able to eat a slice of your key lime or rum fudge pie(or brownies oh.my.god.)(omg or banana bread)…all to die for!!!! I seriously think you put some magic or something in your food because it is ALWAYS insanely delicious.(maybe it’s love, omg I’m melting:)!) Thank you, as well, for always being so so sweet throughout the day, even while putting up with our incessant needs.

    You guys are seriously the best. Houston in no way compares to the beautiful Virgin Islands, but if you are ever in town, you know where to stay. We love you guys & thank you again for everything!

  • Sarah A

    This was a really great experience and I am grateful to have been with Nikki and Karl. Gabby pretty much summed it up. Thank you guys for making this the best possible week for us especially the food lol but more because both of you were very warm and welcoming. Thank you Nikki and Karl!!!!

  • What a once in a lifetime experience. Nikki and Karl have turned a 50-foot catamaran into a 5-star hotel. From swimming with sea turtles to enjoying decadent meals, these two provided world-class hospitality. Karl’s intuition as a captain, and his years of hard work really show. His seamanship made us feel safe, curious, and amazed each day. Nikki’s knowledge within the kitchen and beyond was delightful. She is a rockstar and a real steward of the environment, which helped us feel connected to the sea. This dream-team duo cultivated the vacation of a lifetime for our family, and we all have a friend-crush on both of them! We hope to meet again, whether on the high seas or dry land, for a reunion in the future. Thank you both for an unforgettable trip.
