Leopard 62ft - 2002, refit 2018

The Big Dog

Yacht description

This 62ft catamaran has been lovingly looked after and looks amazing with pristine linens and luxurious touches throughout. The layout is four cabins – one master queen with walk around bed and three further queen staterooms all with ensuite bathrooms, lots of closets and air conditioning.

The large main salon has a great bar for happy hour, a formal dining option plus two comfy seating areas. The cockpit is very welcoming with seating around and an al fresco dining option. Upstairs on the fly bridge is a huge sun bathing pad and great seating for sundowners or watching the world go by.

Our personal opinion

Why book The Big Dog – SPACE – there is tons of room so everyone can spread out and have their own little piece of paradise! Want a bit more action? The wide transoms make it easy to go for a kayak or a snorkel or check out the towing tubes. The crew of Ruth and Terry are wonderful, enthusiastic and fun so whatever you chose you’re bound to have an amazing time.

They have sailed across the Atlantic together 4 times, worked in the Bahamas, many of the Caribbean Islands, the Mediterranean and around the Irish coast. They arrived in the British Virgin Islands 8 years ago and knew almost immediately that this was where they would make their home.

    My experience was by far better than I could have imagined. The boat fit all of us perfectly with enough room to find our own space, yet small enough for intimate meals. It was important to all of us to have our own bathrooms, so enough said about that.

    Let’s talk crew – Ruth & Terry… I do not know where to start as they were flawless, fun, communicative, smart, detailed+++! Every question we asked about the BVI’s or the ocean in general they could answer. To watch the dynamic duo in their element was a spectacular flow of energy whether it was anchoring, sailing, making beds, meal prep, dive prep, cooking spectacular meals, showing us brilliant dive/snorkel spots and following us around to pick up after us made our journey unforgettable. I highly recommend choosing this crew hands-down! Terry’s sense of humor (his April fools joke got us good!) suggesting to take slow-mo video from his dingy and his quick comebacks kept us laughing. Ruth’s MOST AMAZING meals EVER!!! Nuff said! We are a group of well-traveled individuals, with sophisticated palates and she blew our minds night after night. They are a solid team and so refreshing to watch them do their thing, whatever it was.

    Thank you to all of you! You guys make travel dreams come true.

    This was our 5th BVI charter and the first for us on The Big Dog with Ruth & Terry. Ruth & Terry were great. They made us feel comfortable and right at home. The trip was amazing from the diving, the snorkeling, the food, the painkillers and the bushwhackers. We highly recommend The Big Dog.

    The trip was fantastic!! From the time we met Terry and Ruth at the dock and boarded the Big Dog until our departure on Scrub Island nothing could have been better. The yacht was in great condition, very comfortable and well stocked. We cruised and sailed to so many great islands and always felt safe. Terry and Ruth, they must be the best team in the BVI’s!! Very professional and lots of fun. And Ruth is a great cook with a menu that couldn’t have been better. And Terry’s “cocktail of the day” was just great too! I can’t say enough about them. We felt like friends together.

    I could go on and on, on a 1-10 scale the experience was a solid 10.
    We plan on doing this again in the future and hope Terry and Ruth will be available to charter us.

    Our family of seven had the trip of a lifetime with Ruth and Terry Ross aboard The Big Dog. The sailing was beautiful and relaxing. Our grown children enjoyed all the toys on board with water skiing, tubing, scuba diving, paddle boards and sea kayaking. Terry and Ruth are so gracious and accommodating.

    The food on board was 5 star gourmet. How Ruth does it in the galley kitchen is pure magic! The menus were varied and the food was delicious and plentiful. The boat is immaculately maintained with plenty of room to spread out and relax.

    My only regret is that the trip ended after an amazing week in the BVI. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

    The entire yacht was gleaming, welcoming, and set a great tone. The cabins and beds were slightly larger than expected. The bathrooms were well designed and had all needed equipment. Terry & Ruth did a phenomenal job keeping everything tidy and clean. Towels were changed out during the week and everything was comfortable.

    There was more than enough space for all six of us to spread out and relax. The front netting was a fantastic place from which to enjoy the boat under sail. The yacht had a great mix of lounging space with each of us being able to sun or shade at will.

    I was never once nervous with Terry at the helm. He was patient and explained all questions thoroughly. He was incredible when interacting with the kids! It is very apparent Terry knows the area well. He created a good mix of secluded coves and those with more activity. The dives were well thought out, as well as the snorkeling experiences.

    Ruth is a treasure! How anyone prepares five star meals in a galley that small is beyond me! She went above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoyed every meal. The desserts were also INCREDIBLE.

    Ruth and Terry both did a great job with the two teenagers on board. The absolute best endorsement I can share is that the sixteen year old (very social and at first not thrilled with being away from friends) didn’t want to go home!!

    Without a doubt we hope to do it again in the next few years but only with Terry & Ruth!

    We had a trip of a lifetime and Terry and Ruth were absolutely brilliant. It was a great match for what we wanted and they could not have been better for us and especially the kids, who all came back having had a wonderful time in the BVIs and the sailing was fantastic, food terrific.
