Gypsy Princess

Yacht description

Gypsy Princess offers 3 queen size cabins – each have ensuite bathrooms, lots of storage space and luxurious French linens. The salon is lovely with lots of light wood and neutral upholstery with ample room for six people to relax or dine. The cockpit, probably the most popular spot on the yacht, is very comfortable with a seating and dining area plus a great shaded lounging cushion. And then there’s the flybridge, where not only the sailing action takes place, but has additional lounging cushions for sunbathing and enjoying the fantastic views.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Gypsy Princess – THE CREW – Biff and Amy are just wonderful. They are a joy to be around and their humour is infectious. Their love for the islands is not only emotional, but practical. They have spent the years since Hurricane Irma donating half of their gratuities and their spare time to local charities. Gypsy Princess – vacation of a lifetime – Box ticked!!

    If you wish to be a warrior, prepare to be broken. If you wish to be an explorer, prepare to get lost, and if you wish to be a lover prepare to be both!

    Biff & Amy, I was prepared to get away and escape from a busy life but you both stirred something in me (and my family) that was so indescribably needed. Your care, attention and knowledge is a gift. There is no way we could have has this vacation without you both. I look forward to planning another trip to be with you again soon.

    Please come to NYC so I can fill you both with the love you shared with me and my family. Xoxo

    Thank you for being so nice to me and helping me 😃 Gypsy Princess is so awesome I wish I could live on this boat & Biff and Amy made this trip soooo much better. I will remember this trip forever!

    Dear Biff & Amy,
    As you may have noticed I can be a man of few words… but I’ll try to put into words my gratitude for how you both took care of my family, how impressive your professionalism and attention to detail made this vacation a true, low-stress experience from before we even stepped foot onboard Gypsy Princess to the unfortunate day we needed to depart. I can’t think of a single thing that I could or should have been different.
    Thanks again for everything, see you soon!!

    I learned a lot from a sailing crew,
    A couple who showed me the Caribbean blue.
    Helped me face my fears, rewarded with champagne and beers!
    Long days followed by nightly puddin’ and gourmet meals.
    Oh how I love the BVI feels!
    Six nights and five fantastic days,
    Soaking up rays, even snorkelling in caves.
    Loads of information in one amazing vacation.
    Thank you for the new ideas and traditions, memories and laughs,
    From sushi in Tortola to exploring The Baths.
    Thank you for everything and being so kind,
    This trip has restored some peace of mind.
    I wish you guys the best, you deserve nothing less.
    Here’s to next time with more adventures and wine!
    Much Love and Smooth Sailing Ahead.

    Thank you for an amazing week in the BVI! Everything was truly fantastic, from the food, snorkeling, beach excursions and your overall hospitality was beyond words! This might have been our first charter but it won’t be our last! xoxo

    Amy & Biff, this was our 3rd trip together and it’s never the same! You guys are masters of your trades and ambassadors for the BVI’s. Thank you for everything you did for us this week to make our trip and Jackie’s birthday so special. We value our friendship with you guys and love to meet up again in the USA! Much Love.

  • Awesome trip, and despite some paperwork, (which is much easier than filling out a credit card application) the entry in and out of Tortola was excellent. Planning on going back early March. Those that were handling the testing where all professional; very clean, and for the most part efficient. Testing on Tortola was quick/testing in Virgin Gorda a bit slower, but still clean, and results came back quickly.

    The four days of on-board quarantine was fine, we did not feel any different other than having some bays completely to ourselves.

    The boat was awesome. The crew pre-anticipated all our needs, not sure what we would have done without them; and the best part is that you can see that they love their job, take pride of ownership in Gypsy Princess, resulting in deliverables that are genuine.

    I had expressed to Amy that I want a “healthy/low calorie diet” and she delivered perfectly. Biff and his masterful skills delivered smooth sailing in every aspect. The pair is perfection personified. Lots of laughs, some serious conversations, planning, and overall a balance of harmony that was wholly welcome.

    I’ve been on many vacations and stayed at some very exclusive resorts so I wasn’t sure how my first sailing adventure would compare especially during covid. I can honestly say that this was one of the best if not THE best vacation I’ve ever experienced. Being quarantined on the GP and the two covid tests were almost insignificant, having seas and coves almost exclusively to ourselves was incredible.

    Your knowledge of the islands past and present, the 5-star food prepared on board daily, the snorkeling adventures, the sunset horseback riding on the beach, and the restaurant recommendation was outstanding. Your effort to ensure that everything was perfect (which it was!!) was appreciated and obvious. From pick up, to drop off, to testing, and to everything in between you guys were amazing.

    I have already told several of my friends that the trip on the Gypsy Princess is a bucket list adventure and I hopefully will be sailing again with you in the future.

    Warm regards from a cold New Jersey.

  • Bob & Jan

    We had such a great time!! You are the best! Amy, the meals were fantastic. Biff you picked the perfect places to stay at night. And of course the surroundings were gorgeous! You two are the best!

    What a fantastic introduction to charter sailing – you guys were amazing, so accommodating in every respect. Thanks for all the perfect planning to make our cruise a perfect one. Loved it all!

  • David & Denise

    Gypsy Princess is a fantastic boat! Every amenity and tastefully decorated.

    Biff is amazingly competent and in addition to making sure one had a great time he assured everyone was safe – on the boat, getting in and off the dinghy. I enjoyed just watching & learning.

    Amy provided terrific and varied meals, presented beautifully, and she is a delightful person. She is also a top notch 1st mate.

    All in all a beautiful trip in the gorgeous locale! Thanks Biff & Amy.

  • Lisa

    Thank you both so much for making this vacation one of the best ever!!! It started with the wonderful greeting and ended with us feeling like family. Lots of laughter… fun times… adventure… some of the things we will always remember;

    • Amazing Food – Best chef ever not only delicious but so healthy
    • Class with Biff, 3 Norths, Distance, Time, Speed triangle!
    • Sailing, couldn’t have asked for better wind, speed racer Captain Biff! Loved watching them “eat our spray!”
    • Loved hearing about all the history of the islands and pirate stories.
    • Sharks only eat girls named Lisa.
    • Bees only attack girls named Lisa.
    • Only girls named Lisa fall off dinghies.
    • Hiking “No Hike is the same”. We enjoyed exploring every one of them, spectacular views!
    • Snorkelling. Terri loved having Biff point out all the fascinating creatures under the sea. We saw so many new “friendly’ creatures that we had never seen before.

    We are so grateful for the incredible 10 days, we had the best crew. You were kind, thoughtful and nurturing. Thank you for letting us be ourselves and be free.

    We look forward to our next adventure with you!

    Amy & Biff,
    What a great team you make! Amy your gentle personality, amazing food & quick, subtle sense of humor made us feel comfortable and cared for. Biff your enthusiasm for everything brought our best. We enjoyed every minute of this trip and are thankful for both of you and your thoughtful, professional and spot on planning and attention to detail. The boat and the BVI are amazing. It was a trip of a lifetime. Our family was lucky to experience it with you. Thank you, thank you, Thank you!

    Biff & Amy,
    Thank you for being excellent hosts during our time in the BVI. The clear blue water, pristine beaches, Caribes, lobster, bars, rum tasting, bone fishing and snorkelling were all amazing to experience. Getting a taste of the nautical navigation and what it’s like to be a skipper of a boat like GP was awesome as well. I hope you both enjoyed our trip too. Unfortunately, I made sure we did our fair share of damage with the flag (ha ha). It can be added to the list of ridiculous things. I know Biff enjoyed knocking me off the paddleboards – all in the name of banter 😉

    In the future, I hope to return and spend some time here with you two again, whether it be with family, friends or a lady.

    I hope the repetition with the music didn’t drive you crazy (it was starting to bother me to be honest). I wish you safe travels and all the best.

    Amy & Biff,
    You two are such a delight to be with. There are not enough words to explain how thankful we are for your hospitality, generosity and kindness. This trip has been a trip of a lifetime for each and every one of us. I don’t think we could even top this!

    Amy your kind-heartedness, a sweet soul has touched all of our hearts.

    Biff your love of the sea is like no other. You have taught us all how to be more kind to our sea. Your sarcasm and fun loving ways are so entertaining.

    We will miss you both & the GP!

    Amy & Biff,
    The first and only word that comes to mind is Magical! You both have and always will have a special place in my heart. The love you’ve shown us all is beyond lovely. The memories you created are so vivid and amazing. The biggest one was very shiney!!! I’m still in shock that he put a ring on it. And that scavenger hunt was so cool. I just love it all, every single bit of it!

    You both are so thoughtful. All the little things are truly the big things that make this trip one of the most memorable weeks of this lifetime. I hope we cross paths again.

    Amy & Biff,
    This trip was amazing. We did so much. We ache from the burnt scalps to our feet. We were able to drink all day because you guys gave us sobering up activities. We experienced so much yet still relaxed. Your humour kept us laughing and the wonderful food kept our bellies full. Thank you for taking us into your home and making us feel at home!
