VISION (2020)

8 guests, 4 Showers, 4 Wash Basins
Luxury sailing catamaran VISION is as comfortable as she is seaworthy. This Lagoon 57 is an ideal build for first time charter guests featuring unmatched stability and excellent speed under sail. The yacht has a spacious cockpit, sized for the entire charter party to be together. For sun and fun, huge trampolines on the bow let everyone enjoy an exciting ride over the water. For guests who want to hoist the sails and take a turn at the helm, the Captain is a patient instructor and VISION handles exceedingly well. Step aboard VISION and be impressed with the great views, open social spaces, nautical blue and white furnishings, luxury linens and guest amenities. The cockpit is a favorite spot for al fresco dining, or cocktails and conversation in protective shade. Whether dining, drinking or chatting, the interior saloon with plush banquette seating offers deluxe comfort in an air-conditioned space. VISION features spacious accommodations for eight guests in four cabins. Three queen-bed cabins with under-bed storage and one forward cabin with twin bunk beds, the favorite of children but sized and outfitted for adult comfort. All cabins are en suite with electric toilet and separate shower. Cabins are equipped with air conditioning, fans and portholes for fully customizable temperature. Each cabin is equipped with a USB charger for phones and iPads. VISION is designed for water sports fun. Aft on both hulls steps lead directly into the sea, which makes getting on and off the yacht a breeze. There is also a boarding ladder to starboard. VISION also carries snorkel gear, clear bottom kayaks, tube and stand-up paddle boards. Sailing catamaran VISION has an ideal layout, is meticulously maintained and carries an excellent array of toys. VISION prefers and excels at "family style charters". The crew have earned heartwarming testimonials. They anticipate the needs, and cater to the interests of every guest. For these reasons among many, guests who charter VISION once always hope to return.

CAPTAIN/CHEF CHARLY ZAHR
Charly grew up just outside of glamorous, vibrant, Buenos Aires, Argentina. His culture of music, playing the guitar, great food, fine wine and entertaining friends, are part of what makes his charter style so special.

In his early 20s, Charly completed his studies in Industrial Engineering at the University of Buenos Aires. He left the dazzle of the capital and a successful career as a musician/singer with his band, “Charly Zahr & Co." He moved to Rio de la Plata, where once he gripped a yacht helm he did not want to let go. He said, “A good friend introduced me to this passion for yachting. It was as if I’d been born for this life, a dream come true! I came to the Virgin Islands on a charter yacht. Right after I arrived I met Carolina. I had found my perfect partner.” That was some 20 years ago. They have been sailing together ever since.

Captain Charly is an expert seaman and extremely knowledgeable about sailing throughout the Caribbean. He says it’s his favorite yachting destination. “Peaceful, crystal clear waters, steady breezes all year around, perfect temperatures and amazing fresh vegetables and fish! And the most wonderful, local people to spend time with. Charter guests aboard VISION experience all this and more. Because, although Charly commands the ship, he also has many stories to tell and songs to sing. All you need do is ask him.

CAPITÁN / CHEF CHARLY ZAHR
Charly creció a las afueras de la glamorosa y vibrante Buenos Aires, Argentina. Su cultura de la música, tocar la guitarra, buena comida, buen vino y entretener a sus amigos, son parte de lo que hace que su estilo de charter sea tan especial.

En sus 20 años, Charly completó sus estudios en Ingeniería Industrial en la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Dejó el deslumbramiento de la capital y una exitosa carrera como músico / cantante con su banda, "Charly Zahr & Co." Se trasladó a Río de la Plata, donde una vez que se apoderó de un timón de yate no quería dejarlo ir. Él dijo: "Un buen amigo me presentó a esta pasión por la navegación. Fue como si hubiera nacido para esta vida, ¡un sueño hecho realidad! Llegué a las Islas Vírgenes en un yate de alquiler. Justo después de llegar, me encontré Carolina. Había encontrado a mi pareja perfecta. "Eso fue hace unos 20 años. Han estado navegando juntos desde entonces.

El capitán Charly es un marinero experto y conoce mucho sobre la navegación por el Caribe. Él dice que es su destino de yate favorito. "Aguas tranquilas y cristalinas, brisas constantes durante todo el año, temperaturas perfectas e increíbles verduras frescas y pescado! Y las personas más maravillosas y locales con quienes pasar el tiempo. Los huéspedes de charter a bordo de VISION experimentan todo esto y más. Porque, aunque Charly comanda el barco, también tiene muchas historias que contar y canciones para cantar. Todo lo que necesitas hacer es preguntarle.

CHEF/MATE CAROLINA RODRIGUEZ SOAJE
Caro and two younger siblings grew up in the beautiful bustle of Buenos Aires. During the summer, the family traded city life for country life on their ranch. Caro rode horses through a pastoral landscape, enjoying the animals and the beauty of nature. She was always surrounded by many friends, so it was little surprise when she pursued a degree in Public Relations at Universidad Argentina John F. Kennedy. However, when she fell in love, plans changed.

Caro met Charly, and together they launched a career in yachting. The two became licensed captains in Argentina and sailed the world’s oceans. Caro continued taking courses to further her career as a yacht chef, including pastries and breads and sommelier. She had an exciting position as chef/hostess on a Farr 80’, exploring most of the European and Turkish coasts. She also worked on yachts as pastry chef and first mate. Since 1999, she has owned a 62' classic yacht, operating long term and day charters throughout the Caribbean.

Caro excels at preparing Argentinian dishes from recipes handed down through generations, like homemade Chimichurri. She also has a repertoire of European dishes. Her pastries and breads are irresistible. She says, “Guests rave most about my 70% cocoa chocolate mousse, and my dulce de leche mousse, with ingredients we bring from Argentina!” Guests aboard VISION not only eat well, they are pampered. Caro is trained in Silver Service and knows how to be discreet for those guests that value privacy. However, she prefers an interactive charter. She says, “I try to show the beauty of this lifestyle to our guests and make their stay a truly amazing life experience!” Step aboard to encounter an unforgettable VISION!

CHEF / MATE CAROLINA RODREQUEZ SOAJE
Caro y dos hermanos menores crecieron en el hermoso bullicio de Buenos Aires. Durante el verano, la familia cambió la vida de la ciudad por la vida en el campo en su rancho. Caro montó caballos a través de un paisaje pastoral, disfrutando de los animales y la belleza de la naturaleza. Ella siempre estuvo rodeada de muchos amigos, así que no fue una sorpresa cuando obtuvo un título en Relaciones Públicas en la Universidad Argentina John F. Kennedy. Sin embargo, cuando ella se enamoró, los planes cambiaron.

Caro conoció a Charly, y juntos lanzaron una carrera en yates. Los dos se convirtieron en capitanes con licencia en Argentina y navegaron los océanos del mundo. Caro continuó tomando cursos para continuar su carrera como chef de yates, incluyendo pasteles, panes y sumiller. Ella tenía una posición emocionante como chef / anfitriona en un Farr 80 ', explorando la mayoría de las costas europeas y turcas. Ella también trabajó en yates como pastelero y primer oficial. Desde 1999, ha sido propietaria de un yate clásico de 62 pies, operando charters a largo plazo y por todo el Caribe.

Caro se destaca en la preparación de platos argentinos a partir de recetas transmitidas de generación en generación, como el Chimichurri casero. Ella también tiene un repertorio de platos europeos. Sus pasteles y panes son irresistibles. Ella dice: "¡Los clientes deliran sobre mi mousse de chocolate con cocoa al 70% y mi mousse de dulce de leche con ingredientes que traemos de Argentina!" Los huéspedes a bordo de VISION no solo comen bien, sino que también son mimados. Caro está entrenada en Silver Service y sabe cómo ser discreta para aquellos huéspedes que valoran la privacidad. Sin embargo, ella prefiere una carta interactiva. Ella dice: "¡Intento mostrar la belleza de este estilo de vida a nuestros huéspedes y hacer que su estadía sea una experiencia de vida realmente increíble!" ¡Suba a bordo para encontrar una VISIÓN inolvidable!

=========================================================================================================
Charly and Carolina have an adorable young son Valentin, born October 14, 2008, who is a great sailor and deckhand. He will not be on board for charters unless it is a family charter and the guests invite him to join the charter. Twelve year old Valentin can serve as the 3rd crew member, at the clients discretion. He's great with families and kids and helps out with snorkeling, sailing, and other chores around the boat.
