New Yacht Charters Arriving in the Caribbean for Fall/Winter 2022-2023
Every month, there are new crewed charter yachts arriving in the Caribbean. See what all the buzz is about on the private yacht charter vacation!
116' VIVERE is a stunning 116' Azimut that is just finishing a $1M+ refit! She has been completely repowered and all of her soft goods replaced and updated; carpet, couches, dining area, linens and soft goods in cabins etc. New photos will be added in the next month to reflect all the beautiful changes!
With 116' feet in overall length, VIVERE provides great space for 5 substantial staterooms. There is an on-deck master with King size bed and 4 additional guest staterooms below, providing accommodations for 10 guests. The guest staterooms below consist of two (2) queen staterooms and two (2) twin staterooms and all are afforded equally large living areas.
The on-deck master is elegantly decorated and finished, benefitting from large windows to allow lots of natural light due to its position on the main deck. Besides a king-sized bed, this living area also offers a nice desk to work and a comfortable settee to relax. There is a beautiful, full-beam master bath that is finished with a number of different marbles and has a shower, bathtub, and toilet.
For relaxation, guests have an enormous salon with bar area and adjoining dining room inside while also having a nice aft deck and supersized flybridge/sundeck outside. Because the toys are stored in the garage, the sundeck is dedicated entirely to enjoying the outdoors in the Jacuzzi, on the sunpads, at the dining table, or simply in a nearby chaise lounge. The clever “hard top” is designed with a retractable awning to suit the sunbathing needs of guests. There is easy access to refreshments throughout as there are bars with refrigeration and icemakers on the flybridge, on the aft deck, and in the main salon. All exterior decks are laid with teak for a warm, comfortable feel.
The galley is well designed for the chef and serving staff to be able to work effectively throughout the day and is conveniently located next to the formal dining area. Guests also have the option of dining al-fresco on the aft deck or on the sundeck depending on the weather.
The interior woodwork consists of finely crafted cherry and burlewood throughout with a matte finish. Beautifully decorated with a combination of built-in and loose furniture, the interior is generously accented with a variety of different marbles, fabrics and designs.
With a full-time crew of 5, guests will be treated to the highest level of service and comfort during their week of charter aboard Vivere!

58' CATAMARAN EMYSA
Capt. Bastian Tromp:
Chartering yachts for potential buyers in Cape Town, Bastian found a way to bring his two loves together: sailing the ocean, and bringing people closer to nature. Even on land, people turn to him to take them out exploring and camping. Chartering proved to be a beautiful extension to that.
Bastian is truly passionate about the sea, nature and the connection we have to it; and he always seems to know the perfect equation for a divine sunset. For him, providing a good and memorable experience on the sea is a duty just as much as it is a pleasure.
Chef & First Mate: Sarai Ben Ari:
Sarai was raised in Italy, Germany and Israel - always on the coast. Being a daughter to a skipper, her family had a close relationship with yachts. They regularly went sailing in the Mediterranean, exploring all of the different coastlines the Med has to offer, and that was where she fell in love with the sea. Discovering this at a young age she took on competitive windsurfing and started scuba diving, along with photography as a way to indulge in the present and the beauty of nature. Seeing food as an art that has the power to connect people, she ventured into hospitality during and after high school, working in different catering companies.
At the age of 19 she enrolled in the IDF and served for 4 years as a Commanding Officer. During her service, she found profound meaning in human companionship and the relationships we build with each other. This understanding grew stronger through her travels in Africa, getting to know a variety of cultures and being inspired by her experiences there.
Sarai is passionate about the beauty in the simplicity of life. She believes food has the potential to elevate any experience to new heights. By combining fresh ingredients, and accentuating natural flavors, her cooking is designed to bring those at the table closer together.
