Catana 49ft - 2021

Koru

Yacht description

Koru comes equipped with every comfort needed for a world class sailing charter and boasts a huge amount of open space unrivalled by any cruising catamaran in its size range. Layout is three large queen sized staterooms each with separate toilets and showers as well as walk around beds.

On decks there is a forward sunbathing lounge area and a great flybridge. The cockpit and lounge blend seamlessly with an opening “wall” and windows that make a wonderful outdoor salon area. Watch movies under the stars on the huge, cushioned foredeck, eat breakfast on the flybridge, lunch in the forward lounge and dinner as the sun sets in the spacious outdoor saloon.

    Cpt Keith and Jessa,
    Thank you for sailing with the Jacobs family! We loved seeing St John and St Thomas in a new way! We had epic sea life. Whales! Sharks, turtles, an eel, spotted eagle rays and all the fish. Highs scuba dive the shipwreck, unexpected whales, turtles, playing cards, fancy presentation of chick fil a sauce, fishing, remora poop :|, amazing food and surprise desserts. Lows: National Parks (oliver) [he just wanted to fish!!], sunburn and having to leave and return to the US :(.
    Thank you both for an amazing week – best trip ever!

    Dear Keith and Jessa
    Thank you for a wonderful adventure this week. We were rookies to the boating/sailing/yachting world and all of our expectations were wildly exceeded. Travelling with 4 young children is always unpredictable and you both went well out of your way to accommodate and engage each one of the kids in their own special way. As much as all the sails, scenery and activities were amazing and breathtaking, the deep talks, laughs and conversations were equally enjoyable. We never once went hungry, and meals and snacks (both for kids & adults) were delicious and seemed to be catered specifically for us always!
    We will cherish the memories from this week always and will cherish the new friendships we have fostered with the both of you. We wish you nothing but sunny days, smooth sailing and all the successes in the world. Until we meet again…

    I Can’t Think Of A Single Place I’d Rather Be:
    Being newbies to the whole sailing deal, we really had no idea what to expect. To say we were pleasantly surprised would be a huge understatement. You two made this an experience we will never forget. The way you two handled things for my family were remarkable. On day one I thought “no big deal – we’re on a boat” on day 7, I can’t think of a single place I’d rather be. We hope you guys have a great week next week. Thank you for giving my family a trip they’ll never forget.

    Dear Keith and Jessa,
    Thank you so much for opening up your home to us over the past week. You both have inspired a little spark inside me to explore this as a possible career path in the future. Your relentless work never went unnoticed, all the meals, stories, and snorkels. I will never forget seeing the octopuses and turtles – really the experience of a lifetime (or hopefully, twice in a lifetime… or more) . Thank you for the laughs, music, and fun. Hope we can all explore a new place together in the future – Sophia Millay

    Thank you so much for welcoming us with such gracious hospitality to the Koru this past week. Keith, you are an incredible dive master. I remain amazed with your knowledge of the area and expertise leading dives. I also enjoyed listening to your stories and delicious cocktails. Jessa, you never failed to create a delicious and filling meal. The food was exceptional, and your knowledge of the area provided countless useful insights. Thank you both for such a great trip! – Chris Millay

    Thank you so much for an awesome vacation this past week. Before this, I had no idea what to expect in the Virgin Islands. I honestly thought we were going to the Bahamas until we landed. You two are a special crew and have made this trip very memorable. I loved zooming around on the scooters and seeing my first octopus outside of an aquarium. Maybe on our next trip Keith will be able to throw me off the tube. Thanks for everything! Hope to see you again soon! – Sam Millay
    As you can tell from what our children have written above, this has been a very special week for our family. Amy and I are so grateful to have spent a blissful week with you and our adult children. Thank you for your wonderful personas. I will particularly saver the memory of the night dives and watching the stars from the top deck. You made this an unforgettable experience for us. Cheers!! – Todd

    We are incredibly grateful for all of your warm hospitality over the past week. Each meal was unique and Jessa, your special sauces were the best! Keith, thank you for your wonderful stories and for providing us with lifelong memories. We will always remember our octopus sightings, fresh lobster dinner, hidden coves and sunset cocktails. Best wishes for healthy and safe charters in 2022. You both make the Koru an unforgettable getaway!

  • Doug & Elissa

    It’s hard to express in words the “Koru Magic”. From your warm hospitality to the fabulous meals (every single one) to the magical coves and reefs, your kindness and professionalism is an absolute 10! For us, this was a gift to be with our children for a week – time that is rare at any age, but particularly hard in their 20’s and 30’s. We LOVED getting to know the two of you and sharing in your Christmas. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We feel so blessed after a week away with you. p.s. Thank you for keeping Andrew GF all week! Not an easy task

  • Rebecca and Andrew

    It was absolutely incredible having the opportunity to get to know you this past week. The lifestyle you two have built for yourselves is remarkable and we are so lucky to have had a slice of it. Wishing you the very, very best for a lifetime of delicious Jessa meals, Keith’s surprisingly strong cocktails, and adventures in the mountains or on the water! Please come enjoy our RV whenever you are off charter!

  • Grant

    This was truly a special experience. Best snorkeling, food, conversations and games! You were a part of the family this trip. See you again soon!
