Leopard 58ft - 2013

Sea Esta

Yacht description

Sea Esta is a Leopard 58ft catamaran with 4 equal queen sized cabins. The cabins are split between two floors with two being in the front on the first floor with the bed facing lovely big windows, the two further cabins are down a level with side windows. All guest suites have en-suite bathrooms. One queen may be made into two singles which is great if you have kids.

The lounge area is integrated with the kitchen and this level flows seamlessly into the cockpit when the large patio doors are open. The cockpit offers sheltered al fresco dining for up to ten people comfortably. “Upstairs”, the third floor flybridge is probably the most popular spot on the boat offering panoramic views, a barbeque, fridge and comfy seating.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Sea Esta – COMPETITIVE PRICING – Sea Esta offers great accommodation for up to 8 guests at a very good rate. With one of the queen berths converting to twins it also offers great flexibility and there is enough space for everybody to have their own spot.

  • Jeff & Pam

    We can’t even believe the week is over already. Truly one of the best trips we have ever taken. Not going to lie when I say when Eric brought up the idea last year of spending a week aboard a boat/yacht/catamaran to celebrate the dreaded 5-0, I definitely hesitated. I couldn’t imagine wanting to celebrate turning “old” at all, much less out on the ocean with nowhere to run when the reality of acknowledging extra wrinkles, loose skin, and a possible extra pound or two set in. So many good things about turning older but also so many regrets about not learning earlier to embrace life, love myself, make more friends, and to truly enjoy each moment we have here on earth.

    This week has brought so many laughs and good times, and added you all into not just our “friends” circle but actually into our “family”. From the minute we stepped on board you have fed us, loved us, and reminded us to “make good choices” every step of the way. Jeff couldn’t be any more excited about his gold dual stripe status and his duties of watching for the pirates daily.

    As a family member now, we want you all to continue to enjoy all the crazy, laughs and fun we have to offer. So just know that when the invitations start rolling in, we from the bottom of our hearts will be praying you can join us in the near future.

    Love, your whale-sighting, funeral stalking, rainbow searching, shark freaking, two gold-striped birthday guests.

    P.S. Thanks for making 50 fab!!

  • Haleigh & Jenny

    Thank you guys so much for a better week and vacation than we ever could have imagined. It really was a dream all week from drinks to toys to food. Thanks for being amazing sports dealing with our motley crew and super mature senses of humor. Really hope to see y’all again in this lifetime!

  • Eric & Anne Marie

    This trip has exceeded all of the lofty expectations the 8 of us had been talking about for close to a year. 2020 was a trying time for everyone and the thoughts of joining you both on this amazing trip kept us smiling and laughing. The care and attention to detail you have both shown in every aspect of every day has been incredible, whether it was the amazing food or the quiet confidence you both were able to exude to make us all feel safe, comfortable and relaxed. Anne Marie and I could not picture ourselves having such a good time without the two of you. This has truly been the trip of a lifetime made all the more better by the two of you. When we are gone and back at home we will ALWAYS have you guys in our thoughts and will have smiles on our faces as we remember this amazing trip. With so much love and affection, you both are very special and now hold a forever place in our hearts.

  • Megan & Drew

    From the moment we stepped onto this sailing vessel, we felt at home. The beautiful beaches, the great food, snorkeling, delicious dinners, landscapes, yummy meals, blue water, desserts, paddle boarding, appetizers, the great boat accommodations, food, tilt the glass game, cookies, pulling up anchor, food, sailing lessons, and more food. All of these are memories we will cherish forever, but you taught us much more than sailing. Your grace, patience, hospitality, and generosity did not go unnoticed and are qualities you should both be proud of. They are traits we will look to emulate a little more in our marriage and with our children.

    Thank you for everything you gave us this week. It’s a once in a lifetime trip where everything and everyone came together to create a vacation we will never forget. 

  • Jessica

    A week aboard Sea Esta is better than I could have ever imagined. The best part? Making new connections with the best hosts on land or sea! Brad & Kristi – thank you first for putting up with our antics. But thank you most for making us feel like family, putting our wishes first and in general just being awesome people! I had such an incredible time unwinding and relaxing. It’s hard to imagine going back to everyday life. You two are wonderful!

  • Rose

    Not even sure what to write that could ever express all the fun, adventure, care, smiles, passages, anchoring, environmental learning, mermaiding, views, deep sleep, delicious meals, protection, all the questions answered, and friendships made – but that would just be impossible. Absolutely lucked out for my first voyage and it being with you both.

  • Chery

    Kristi & Brad, you are one of the cutest, nicest couples I have ever met. Thank you so much for all your efforts & compassion… the best service ever! I wish you much prosperity & abundance in your journeys. I so appreciate you both. My life is much richer by having the opportunity to have spent this last week with you!

  • Erika & Randy

    Thank you for making our 1st (of many) sailing trips such an amazing experience. We have fallen in love with this kind of travel because of you two! Your kindness, patience and fantastic service has been fabulous! We appreciate your attention to detail and care the entire trip. We wish you all the best! Much love, sail on! 

  • Ben & Kristine

    Thank you for making this birthday (for me and Ben) by far, the BEST!! This was a dream vacation for us both and it actually became the absolute most incredible week ever! From the AMAZING food you fed us all day, everyday, to the cocktails and scenery… you two are the best hosts. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and at home from day 1. We would love to host you both on land if you make your way to D.C. Until then, I’m working on trip#2 with you guys! Much love to you both!

  • Kristen & Wendy

    It’s tough to describe the level of awesomeness that is a week on Sea Esta with the two of you. I’ve sailed before but nothing like this… your balance of fun with professionalism is unmatched. Thank you for everything… hope to see you guys in D.C. for more merriment with the #shadesofK crew. Until we can sail together again, take care!! Peace & love, 

    P.S. I keep thinking about that island Cobb salad!

  • Kurt & Sarah

    Saying this week was incredible or amazing or the best does not do it justice. If anything, we would say it was life changing to have you both hosting us, cooking for us, piloting the boat for us, telling us stories and being our overall guides and friends for the week. You both have not only turned into our friends, but you have become our point of reference to what a wonderful week in the Virgin Islands means. Keep in touch and always remember to keep it chill -Livinchill

  • Mario

    ***** (5 Stars!) Thank you Brad & Kristi! 6 nights with you on the Sea Esta is better than 359 nights on land!

  • Brian & Autumn

    Thank you so much for hosting an amazing birthday trip for Ben & Kristine! The food, drinks and your knowledge of the area added to the trip. We will be sure to spread the word of the best two captains for our friends to charter with! We wish you guys a great 2021 with lots of love, laughs and new adventures! Hope to see you both soon! 

  • Rich & Shannon

    You two are awesome! Your cool and calming attitude and professional demeanor made the trip even better than we could have imagined. The food was fantastic & service to match. We wish you all the best in 2021! If (or when) you get to Napa Valley please let us know, we would love to host you at the winery/Inn.

  • Emma

    Thank you for giving us such a wonderful week of memories to hold onto from 2020! Your attention to detail and passion for what you do shined through every element of the trip and made it so, so special. Hope to cross paths with you again soon – until then, safe travels and happy new year!

  • Aaron

    Thanks for a hell of a week! It’s really hard to complain when your crew are some of the best humans around (that’s you guys). Thanks for accommodating my throwing needs and keeping us all fed with some outrageously good food! I’ll never forget my first time on a catamaran. Best of luck to both of you in 2021 and keep being the awesome people you are! Thanks again and much love.

  • Cleve

    You guys have been the dream crew all week long. I can’t express enough how special this trip has been after such a hard year. You guys were the perfect balance between everyone on board. I will definitely miss Kristi’s delicious meals in the new year! I wish you guys plenty of success and happiness in 2021 and beyond!

  • Kristy & GW

    I can’t say enough amazing things about you both and our experience on Sea Esta! Y’all are so kind, talented, friendly and fun. We immediately felt welcome and relaxed from the second we stepped aboard. Thanks for being so flexible with coordinating a tandem sail so we could all be together, as well as have time apart! We hope our paths cross again and wish you so much luck and happiness in the future. Rock Chalk!

    P.S. Can’t wait for the cookbook! Best food ever!

  • John & Chrissy

    Thank you for such a memorable vacation. All the special touches, incredible food and amazing hospitality will stay with us forever. We appreciate all you did to make this the perfect trip. We will keep in touch via Insta and have fun watching your adventures!

  • Anna, Josh & Abby

    Wow!! I can’t imagine a better experience for our Maiden Voyage sailing with you guys. The food was fresh, delicious, & always spot on, as well as your hospitality. We loved your easy going, laid back vibe. The wildlife was amazing too! I will never forget swimming with the dolphins & never tire of seeing another sea turtle. Thank you for the warmth you bring to the boat, always making us feel at home. Wishing you the best in all your future travels.

  • Mark & Julie S

    You both made us feel at home from the moment we came aboard! You knew what we needed even before we asked. Having never been on a sailboat before we were so thankful for your expertise. You worked together so wonderfully and truly fit our group perfectly. The meals were top notch! We feel like we have two new friends. Thank you for making this trip so very perfect, We hope to come aboard again, but for now, we must Get goin 😉

  • Marie M

    Wow! What an amazing trip we had on the beautiful Sea Esta! We’ve been on several of these sailing trips and normally head straight to the BVI’s. It was such a surprise blessing to have to stay in the USVI’s this time. We were able to experience a whole new world! We especially loved sailing to St. Croix, the amazing snorkeling at Buck Island, and the breathtaking sunsets from Frederiksted. We also learned that St. Thomas and St. John have many incredible stops!

    Brad, you are a great Captain. You know all about the islands and sea life, while also upbeat and positive, making us all feel very safe. Kristi, you are a ray of sunshine!! Between the full breakfasts, cocktail of the day and incredible meals, I’m leaving feeling very relaxed and spoiled. The two of you make a tremendous team and I can’t imagine what else you could have done to make this fabulous vacation any better. Thank you for everything and I hope to sail with you again soon!

  • Chris

    I had high expectations because of the great reviews we read but you exceeded those- above and beyond! Not only the food & drinks but your service and your personalities. You both are the best. We will miss you. Thanks for the best week of my life. You made turning 50 delightful!

  • William

    I wouldn’t have wanted to spend this week any other way! Thank you for the amazing food & drinks and all the fun facts about the islands. I’m glad we were so fortunate to have you guys as our crew! Thank you for the amazing memories that we’ll have forever!

  • Randi & Mark

    Y’all were amazing and made this week so special. We all knew we were in good hands! Thank you for the attention to detail and comforting presence. Please come see us in Atlanta 🙂

  • TS

    Brad and Kristi not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. They were both extremely personable, fun, caring, spontaneous, and their top priority (aside from safety) was ensuring we had a great time, which we did. The food was absolutely phenomenal (Brad and Kristi did a wonderful job customizing the meals according to individual preferences), the overall mood and dynamic on-board was fun and relaxed, and they were ready and willing to change the itinerary according to what we wanted to do.

    Brad and Kristi really went above and beyond to ensure we would have a memorable vacation! They are a wonderful crew and would highly recommend them to all our friends, and definitely would book another charter with them.

  • Heather & Tanya

    Thank you, thank you for an amazing week. We truly appreciate your hospitality and making us feel so welcome. Kristi – your culinary skills are out of this world!

    We can’t think of anything that would have made this week any better… All the adventures we’ll carry with us and it was awesome doing and seeing different spots – especially Fallen Jerusalem!

    Again, thank you for one of the best weeks this year… You guys are the best!

  • Charlotte & Shane

    Dear Brad & Kristi,
    It is with sincere gratitude that Shane & I thank you for one of the most wonderful weeks of our lives. That is written with the greatest sincerity… Kristi you have an amazing gift for cooking! Everything was bang on. Brad you put everyone at ease and can spin a delightful yarn. Thank you for the most appreciated hospitality and your going above and beyond. Truly, we’d love to repay the favor to you both in Virginia Beach. Thank you kindly! You both made this trip truly great! 🙂

  • Alyse

    Dear Kristi & Brad,
    What a wonderful week we have had! I never dreamed of a trip so wonderful, all because of your kindness, patience  in every way, from the care, food and tremendous fun! Thank you for everything, you guys made our trip!!

  • Chris & Jenny

    Thank you for the most awesome trip of a lifetime! You so graciously took care of our every need! This was by far the most memorable b-day/anniversary trip. Definitely more than I could’ve imagined. The food & drink was exceptional!
