Leopard 48ft - 2017


Yacht description

Vicarious is a Leopard 48 catamaran with three equal queen cabins and a single berth forward that is accessed from the deck and shares a bathroom with an interior cabin. The interior queen cabins all have ensuite bathrooms with separate shower stalls.

The décor throughout the yacht is very light and modern with lots of luxurious touches. However, the best feature of this yacht is the outside space – there are three main areas… the cockpit at the back of the boat which offers seating and dining, the salon has a forward door that leads directly to a shaded seating area which brings a lovely cool breeze through the yacht, and upstairs there is a further seating area which, because of the height, gives you an awesome 360-degree view – the perfect spot for sundowners.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book Vicarious – FAMILY FUN – this is the perfect yacht for a family vacation – tons of water toys including a floating dock complete with water slide – the kids will love it!  The crew are wonderful, outgoing and fun – and check out the menu, the food is mouth watering. The Vicarious package delivers and you will have an amazing time onboard.

Onboard experience

Crew profile
Austen had tried asking her out one night while she was bartending, but was turned down — little did she know, almost a year later they would become a couple. Not only would Austen help convince her to go back to school for a culinary arts degree, but they would also agree to a life on the water showing guests the beauties of the ocean and food.

  • We had an incredible week on Vicarious, the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation. Each day different from the one before. All the meals were incredible and we enjoyed getting to try different cuisine throughout the week. The service and experience that Austen and Philly provided have us already looking to book with them again next year. We really enjoyed this trip and met or exceeded all previous charters we have done in the past.

    Our family of four spent Christmas week of 2020 on Charter Vicarious with Austen and Philomena, and it was absolutely a 10 out of 10 experience that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We are experienced travelers and have high expectations, and they exceeded on every level — the boat is in excellent shape and there is clear pride of ownership; Austen is an experienced and considerate captain of the ship and spent extra time to make sure our family felt safe and at ease on the water; Philomena is a phenomenal cook, snorkel tour guide, and family photographer; and they both just went the extra mile on every little detail. By the end of the trip it felt like we were all family. I fully recommend Austen and Philomena without any hesitation and we can’t wait for our next adventure with them!

    Charter Vicarious was fantastic! Philomena and Austen are passionate about serving their clients and providing them an unforgettable vacation experience. They are relatively new owner/operators and had almost everything running perfectly. The boat is only a couple of years old, beautiful, well maintained, and handled the rare moderate seas very well (my wife sometimes gets seasick, but did not have any issues due to the comfortable design and handling of the boat and its captain). Philomena is a trained culinary expert and had us eating a wide variety of tasty and beautifully presented dishes. The itinerary was as flexible and as robust or relaxed as we wished. Philomena and Austen both adjusted plans daily to whatever was requested and possible. There was a mix of private bays, harbor towns, swimming with sea turtles, excursions to go catch lobster, and guided snorkel tours of some of the nicest underwater reef and park areas. Similarly, the evenings were spent on calm and restful shores, with a mix of great food, good conversation, music as requested and pristine skies for stargazing.

    We would definitely recommend Vicarious to couples and families. Philomena and Austen are kind, professional, entertaining, and generous – and we plan to be back again as soon as possible!

    I worked with Austen to plan a six day charter on the Vicarious, through New England as a birthday present for my wife, which included a surprise meet up with friends on the water in Rhode Island. Austen could not have been any more accommodating through the planning process. He made it all very easy by being extremely flexible and responsive. We worked with Philomena, who is the first mate and chef, on a shopping list and menu that accommodated everyone, including the kids.

    There were 4 adults and 2 kids total, and we all had had an amazing time sailing with Austen and Philomena. It felt like we were sailing with family. They were always considerate of our well being and went out of their way to ensure we were having fun. The two of them are a great team and they both prioritize their guests which made it really nice. Austen is an experienced sailor and as a result, we always felt safe and taken care of. He would get up early in the morning to start sailing to our next destination to ensure that we could maximize our time there. They provided amazing water toys that accommodated all ages. Our 19 month old loved the wading pool, while the 6 year old loved the water slide, paddle boards, and towable flamingo. They even took time out to paddle board and swim with the kids.

    Philomena had well planned menus and made delicious meals. We loved waking up to fresh brewed coffee and tasty breakfasts, such as Norwegian pancakes, Eggs Benedict and smoothies. There were always amazing snacks when we came back on the boat from our afternoon adventures, whether it was exploring on land or swimming by the boat. She even prepared a delicious birthday cake that we all thoroughly enjoyed.

    The accommodations on the Vicarious were super clean and comfortable, and each bedroom had a private bathroom. There was ample room on the boat,and the kids loved congregating in the salon to watch kids’ movies. We had such a great time and we hope to book a trip with them again soon!

    We really did enjoy our charter on VICARIOUS. The boat was spacious and beautiful, the meals were truly gourmet and the crew were capable, thoughtful and fun! We thoroughly enjoyed our time as we sailed through the Elizabeth islands and Martha’s Vineyard, visited beaches & islands, and enjoyed paddle-boarding.

    In terms of favorite moments, meals and experiences — it’s really hard to choose. But I’d say our favorite moment was our visit by a spectacular school of dolphins, our favorite meal the delicious halibut & broccolini (and the chocolate dessert:) and our favorite experience was a tie between the dinner sunset at Menemsha and the sailing itself!

  • Justin

    Hi, We had a great time, thank you!

    The boat was clean and well equipped. The harbors in Montauk, block island, Cuttyhunk and Menemsha were scenic and peaceful.

    Austen is an excellent captain and great presence on the boat. Philomena is a really positive and friendly person and very helpful the entire trip. She kept the boat tidy and kept us all well fed!

    Thank you! Hope to sail again one day,
