Post-Yacht Charter Client Review:
February 2-9, 2020
To Capt. Terry & Ruth Ross on 62' Catamaran The Big Dog: "Thanks for all of the Dinghy rides, Thanks for all the fabulous FOOD, Thanks for all the special DETAILS. You two ROCK!! You two make a great TEAM! After such a great week, you are now officially part of our family!"
"We loved every minute with you, the food and the excellent service. We hope to see you again soon!"
"On our first visit-30 years ago, we drove to the airport with tears in our eyes. We knew we had to be back. It will happen again. Today-This time we fell like we are leaving family behind."
Terry has been messing around on boats since he was a child. He started sailing dinghies and then moved onto larger boats. Despite being a qualified electrician he always yearned to turn his hobby into a career, and following his first trans-Atlantic crossing with friends, he decided to do just that.
He is a commercially endorsed MCA Yachtmaster (both sail and power). He has also been both helm and launching authority for his local branch of Ireland's volunteer lifeboat service.
His other great passion is diving and he looks forward to showing the delights that the Caribbean has to offer to The Big Dog's guests. Diving is included for certified divers only. For non-certified divers, the crew can arrange a rendezvous with one of the local dive companies. For those guests who do not wish to dive, Terry and Ruth are really happy to bring their guests' snorkeling and show them the underwater world from the surface!
Ruth also sailed from a very young age and worked as a teacher before joining Terry for a career in sailing. She has always enjoyed cooking and has taken cookery courses in places such as Ashburton Chef’s Academy in Devon, England and Dunbrody House Cookery School in Wexford, Ireland. She cooks a diverse range of meals and particularly loves using local fresh produce whenever possible. She is more than happy to accommodate any special dietary requests.
Together Ruth and Terry have been running boats- both charter and private- for 14 years. 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.
They are a very welcoming couple who work as a team in all aspects of the running of the boat. It is very important to them that each guest that they welcome on board The Big Dog enjoys every moment of their stay and has a holiday to remember forever.
Casual Kosher diet and some specialty diets can easily be accommodated, please inquire.
We're former Owners & Captain of the Award-winning 72' yacht Three Moons for 18 years. With over 300 charters in our logbook, we currently represent privately crewed Caribbean sailing luxury yacht charters as professional CYBA yacht charter brokers. Recently, we interviewed over 120 catamarans, motor yachts, sailboats, and professional crews. We're happy to promote these yachts offering modern conveniences & unlimited pleasure.
What should you expect from a luxury crewed yacht charter in the Caribbean? It's "ALL about you, ALL the time" onboard a privately crewed charter boat! It's surprisingly affordable too! Far away from overcrowded cruise ships, all-inclusive charter yachts allow you to explore some of the Caribbean’s most exclusive areas and delight in the natural, unspoiled beauty of secluded islands, hidden coves, and secret dive sites. Sail to a nearby island every day & snorkel around your own private beaches; enjoy your favorite cocktail while watching the sunset on your own private yacht; indulge yourself with 5-star gourmet cuisine that is prepared with Caribbean flair and served in the most beautiful surroundings you could ever imagine. We love matching the right crew & yacht with you!
