Charter Yacht XIUMA - Welcome to the fleet

We are pleased to welcome s/y XIUMA, a 55-foot Oyster, to the Caribbean yacht charter fleet. She is owner-operated by Virginia Lee (chef) and her partner Jonathan Wehrung (captain). The name XIU-MA (pronounced shoo-mah) is comprised of two Chinese characters which translates into English as "Elegant Horse".

Charter Yacht XIUMA - Crewed Caribbean Yacht Charters - Virgin Islands Sailing Vacations

XIUMA has twice circumnavigated the globe, crossing all of the world's oceans. She has won the Sydney to Hobart race two times in the cruising class with her former owner under her previous name, "Capricco of Rhu".

Known for her sailing performance, she is as elegant as she is fast! As a charter yacht she continues to sail at 8-9 knots even fully loaded with cruising gear and wine!

XIUMA is best suited for two guests or families of four using any two of the three cabins. The spacious, full-width master cabin (aft) has a walk-around queen berth, ensuite electric head and stall shower. The two forward cabins share a electric head and shower. One cabin (forward) has a double V-berth, while the other (starboard) has upper and lower single berths. Virginia has chosen some very elegant custom bedding making the guest cabins even more inviting and luxurious.

Jonathan is definitely an adventure-loving captain. He is certified to teach sailing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, and also snow-skiing and snowboarding!
