Experience the vacation of a lifetime exploring the Caribbean at your pace aboard your personal chartered 47 foot sailing catamaran Sunshine".

Captain Ken Wolfel will be your captain and host for your week long fantasy vacation (getaway). Ken has been sailing for over 35 years and has been chartering in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean for the past 20 years. He holds a Masters license with the US Coast Guard.

She has four queen size cabins with 10” memory foam mattresses, four private heads (bathrooms) with showers, a full galley complete with microwave and air conditioning throughout. Outside forward are two large trampolines for sun tanning, star gazing or simply daydreaming as you watch the waves slip by. Aft there is a large covered cockpit for dining or to get out of the sun. A hammock, six floats, two kayaks, a stand up paddle board, a blender, 110 volt inverter, custom CD/DVD stereo system to play your favorite music, large outdoor gas grill and snorkel gear complete the package.
Captain Ken is waiting for you join him so you can experience the magic of the laid back lifestyle and crystal clear waters of the British Virgin Islands in a manner that very few are privileged to know! Never lose sight of land as you sail amongst the dozens of Islands, each with its own distinctive personality.

Sunshine will be available in Grenada and the Grenadines between July and November this hurricane season for anyone interested in a little variety!

Holliday in Heaven
As captain Ken “sunshine” will tell you himself, being on a catamaran sailing the British Virgin Islands is not perfect for everyone but it is absolute heaven for most. Ken’s boat has been lovingly maintained and upgraded by Ken himself to make it convenient, comfortable and fun. I must admit that we worried about feeling like a guest in someone’s small home but Ken never made us feel that way. We had the run of the boat and with the exception of a few guidelines, Ken made us feel like it was our boat for the week. We went through a broker last year to rent a boat and was assigned a captain. While it was a great experience, this was much more personal and Ken was absolutely wonderful! His laugh is contagious and he has a very gentle personality. Everyone seems to know him wherever he goes and is happy to see him, greeting him with hugs and shouts of “Sunshine!”. One of the best things about Ken is that he will take you to places others won’t. He knows these islands very well and is an amazing tour guide. You will see places that many of the other captains and boat companies won’t allow you to go or don’t even know about. Don’t hesitate. Just book it and enjoy!

Could not have been better!
This is our 4th time chartering with Capt Ken. We go just about every year now. It’s a fabulous adventure! We just returned from our vacation and are already planning our next one! If you haven’t booked yet with Sunshine, do yourself a favor and just go. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Capt Ken. Beth, Connie and Glen

Best trip ever!!
This was our second year chartering with Ken on Sunshine. It was absolutely fabulous in every way. We lacked for nothing, Ken was an amazing host and guide, and it was just a fantastic week. Highly recommended.

Sunshine Fortnight
Ken is one of the world's good guys. He did everything possible to make sure our time aboard was the best it could be. Always a smiling and totally capable captain, we felt secure knowing that whatever the weather -( at times 30 gusting 33 knots) he knew the boat well and would dress it appropriately for the waves and wind. Somehow, he managed to find shelter in the evenings and understanding that we love swimming and snorkelling moored us in the best places. As an experienced sailor, I specially appreciated the chance to helm the Catamarin. Sunshine is spacious and well equipped and we can recommend the package. Thank you Ken.
