Charter Yacht Flame - Cruise the Virgin Islands

The motoryacht FLAME is one of our favorite charter yachts in the Virgin Islands. Wayne & Barbara, owner-operators of Flame, have been chartering for 20-plus years and they still enjoy sharing their boat and the islands with their guests. Jacob, the ship's cat has been aboard for about 5 years now, and is much loved by all.

Way back when they discovered Flame, she was in quite a state of disrepair (fire damaged as I recall, hence the name "Flame") but it was love at first sight. Flame's restoration and reconfiguration took a full three years and they did all the work themselves. Their love for their home truly shows with the meticulous upkeep and maintenance they bestow upon her.  A very fine vessel, indeed.

In the summer months when they are not chartering, they restore antique speedboats (classic mahogany Chris Crafts and Gar Woods) and cars, as well as remodelling and landscaping their place up in New England. Busy folks while on vacation...

Barb is well-known for her culinary skills and Wayne for his lobster-hunting talent. You can almost always bet on fresh seafood sometime during your week. You can find Barb's recipe for Shrimp and Lobster Risotto with White Truffle Oil in a previous post here.

Honeymooners... Flame is a "one stop shop".  Wayne can perform your wedding ceremony as he is an ordained minister.

Flame is a fully air conditioned, 65-foot Feadship motoryacht that accommodates up to 6 guests in 3 equivalent cabins, each with private ensuite head/shower. Originally built in 1956, she has a classic style that is very appealing.  Flame has a large, covered aft deck which is great for dining and just relaxing out of the direct sun, yet still enjoying the cooling tradewinds. They have a 15-foot dinghy with a 85HP motor, waterskis, tube, snorkel equipment, 2-person kayak, two TV/VCR/DVD, iPod with 6000 songs that can be broadcast in any cabin, bocci and lots of other beach games, too!
