Crewed Yacht Business Success Story For Owner Operators

Crew yacht awardsCaptain Nim and Chef Fabiola Hirschhorn are in their second season of operating crewed charters in the BVI aboard their catamaran LUNA, a Lagoon 450S. According to them, quitting corporate life a year ago has been the best decision ever! They both had successful careers and have sailed extensively, but they were looking for a change in lifestyle. They love hosting guests, entertaining, traveling and sailing so they asked themselves, why not do this full time?

They have already completed more than 25 charters; their guests’ feedback have been incredible. People go aboard LUNA as guests and leave as friends. Nim and Fabiu says that it is so rewarding and their guests like to keep in touch with them. Many share pictures when they try our recipes at home. They say this reminds them of their happy days aboard LUNA! Last year, during their first appearance with LUNA at the BVI Charter Yacht Show, they took home two first place awards for best appetizer and best cocktail in show. Chef Fabiola’s recipes have been featured in several magazines.

They both agree that this has been an amazing journey and that this career change has far exceeded thier expectations. They love what they do. It is a very rewarding job / lifestyle for a couple who enjoy entertaining and sailing.

We asked them if Catamaran Guru™’s service has been valuable to them and here is what they had to say:

"Starting a new luxury crewed catamaran business as owner operators is not easy; working with Stephen and Estelle was a key point in making this happen. They both gave us the confidence, guided us through the whole process and really helped us build our business from scratch. Catamaran Guru™’s service is invaluable. They are very well connected in the industry and refer you to the right professional to make things happen. This has been our experience since day one. Stephen and Estelle are truly THE Catamaran Guru™s!"
