Catamaran Mango: Welcome to the charter yacht fleet

We would like to welcome the charter catamaran Mango, a 41-foot Lagoon, to the charter yacht fleet.

Charter Catamaran Mango - Crewed Caribbean Yacht Charters - Virgin Islands Sailing Vacations

The Yacht...

Mango is a 41-foot Lagoon catamaran owned and operated by Captain Kelly and Chef Diane. Mango is fully air conditioned and accommodates up to 6 guests in 3 cabins each with Queen berths and ensuite head/shower.

They have an 11-foot dinghy with 18HP motor, 2 kayaks, snorkel gear, floating mats, standup paddleboard (SUP), boogie board with plexiglass window, etc.

Please note that Mango is a non-smoking yacht.


The Crew...

You will definitely have excellent meals and treats aboard as both women have experience in the culinary industry. Dianne looks forward to dazzling guests with a cuisine that mixes Caribbean flavors with French techniques.

Kelly and Diane

Capt. Kelly
After attending culinary school, Kelly worked as a baker and cook at a catering company for ten years in Portland, Oregon. Upon leaving the catering business, Kelly put her culinary education together with her computer skills and worked as a consultant, implementing systems and controls in restaurants.
Chef Dianne
Dianne began working in the food industry in 1975. She graduated from Western Culinary Institute in 1989 and worked for The Red Lion Hotels. She was a Chef Instructor for 23 years at Le Cordon Bleu Portland (Oregon) and received Chef of the Year twice and several student appreciation awards.

In 2012, they felt it was time for a change. Diane remembered her mom's favorite saying “a turtle only moves forward by sticking out its neck“. They decided it was time to live their dream so Dianne and Kelly sold almost everything they owned, including their house, and moved aboard Mango.

While sailing to Tortola we saw humpback whales between Congo in the US Virgin Islands and Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. The whales pass through this area in February and March on their way north. The babies learn to swim in the warm Caribbean waters.
