Berndt & Ruth, owner-operators of PARADISE, a 54-foot Irwin ketch, wrote to tell us about their Sleep Aboard Special for the month of December 2014.

Charter Yacht Paradise:  Excellent sailing, excellent hospitality, excellent fun, excellent food... 
Just an all-around excellent choice for your all-inclusive, crewed Caribbean sailing vacation in the Virgin Islands

PARADISE is offering a free sleep-aboard the night before the charter and a free sleep-aboard the night after the charter for any charter taking place between December 7-26, 2014.

Details for this special offer are:
  • Boarding after 5pm night before first night of charter with dinner ashore that night at client expense. 
  • Follwed by six, seven, or more nights of "normal, all-inclusive charter"
  • Sleep aboard on final night of charter (normally ends by noon) with dinner ashore at client expense.
  • Breakfast the next day is included; disembark the yacht by 10am. 
  • May be applied to 6- or 7-night charters. 
This also includes Christmas!

To help clarify things...
  • 7-night charter, 8-15 December 2014, for example: Board on 7th December after 5pm and disembark by 10am on 16th December 2014. Price: $7450 for 2 guests & $8750 for 4 guests

  • Charters dates may begin on any open day that is convenient for you and the yacht.

Christmas charter, includes holiday premium:
  • 7-night charter: Arrive Dec.18 (after 5pm) then Dec.19-25 with departure Dec.26 (by 10am) Price: $8250 for 2 guests & $9850 for 4 guests
  • 6-night charter: Arrive Dec.18 (after 5pm) then Dec.19-25 with departure Dec.26 (by 10am) Price $7072 for 2 guests & $8443 for 4 guests

Inquire about sleep aboards for other open dates in Paradise's winter & spring charter seasons, too.


The charter yacht Paradise is a 54-foot Irwin cutter sloop that is owner-operated by Ruth and Berndt (Bernie) Bohmfalk. Paradise is fully air conditioned and accommodates up to 4 guests in 2 cabins. They have a couple of cool features which will be appreciated by all, but especially those guests with limited mobility:


Cockpit: Side walk-through access. No climbing over the cockpit coaming.


Boarding ladder / Swim Platform: Paradise has a lifting swim platform that is an elevator from the water to the top of the transom at aft deck level.
    PARADISE also has special rates for 7-night (or more) Honeymoon and Anniversary charters, plus a very interesting rendezvous diving package. Inquire for details.

    Enjoy the warmth of Paradise this December
