  • This excellent, Leopard 48′ sailing catamaran, VICARIOUS, is one of the few owner-operated charter yachts left in the whole of the Caribbean.  Guests like owner-operated yachts, because they are reliable.  Austin and Philomena Anderson are the young, fun, bright, American owners, in their early thirties, who operate the yacht and say, “We are an active crew.  We carry all manner of sports equipment aboard the yacht – efoils, windsurfers, subwings, and so forth for guests, so we prefer to go to bed early, so we can do more on charter, but some guests like to party until 3 am, and that’s okay too.”  They have owned VICARIOUS for four years, operated her for two and base in St. Thomas but can sail out of Tortola on request.
  • Austin and Philomena have given the yacht many new upgrades this year.  They replaced all the air conditioning units and now run the units on 12 volt lithium batteries.  They can run the air conditioning all night, and there is no noise.
  • They have all new kitchen equipment too, and they now offer Starlink, all the rage this year:  continuous internet from a moving target.  VICARIOUS offers internet at sea!  Between islands….no matter where you might be.
  • The yacht has beautiful cabins.  Pale, pale, pale orange, yellow and blue spreads cover each of the three Queen beds in three guest staterooms.  They are doing a solid color theme this year.  Each cabin has a window, so you can see out, and there are shampoo dispensers in each adjoining bathroom and stall shower.  The bathrooms are squeaky clean, white bathrooms.
  • The bow cockpit has a hard top for shade at sea or at anchor.  Bench seating around a table is offered under the shade, and trampolines are just forward, offering sunbathing.  VICARIOUS has no flybridge; it is large enough for sailing purposes only – and what performance sailing! –  but there is an enormous cockpit table aft for out of door dining.
