About GOOD VIBRATIONS

Operating in the Caribbean

Good Vibrations is a lavishly appointed crewed yacht with a factory installed custom luxury layout. Four guest staterooms with queen beds, individual temperature controls, flat screen TVs and personal heads, showers and vanity area. Separate crew quarters with double cabin and en suite head are situated next to a fully equipped galley and utility area to starboard. An additional crew berth is located in the starboard forepeak.

On the bridge deck, the saloon area has separate dining and lounging seating, and features a navigation station with complete electronics and remote controlled autopilot, plus an entertainment center with high quality stereo system, television and DVD player. A cocktail bar is situated at the entrance of the saloon area, so drinks can be served directly inside or out in the cockpit area.  

Exiting the saloon, the huge cockpit provides a spacious guest entertainment area protected by a hardtop fly bridge. This unique feature opens up the cockpit area for dining and relaxing and enables direct walk-through access to the wide aft swim platform, great for diving, snorkeling and access to the dinghy, which can also be used for water skiing.  

Moving up, a staircase leads up to the 6200’s most unique feature, the spacious flybridge supporting the mainsheet traveler and housing the separate steering station, completely outfitted with full electronics including chart plotter and remote controlled autopilot. The majority of the sail handling is carried out here, out of the way of the cockpit area, with the primary electric winches located within easy reach of the helmsman. With comfortable seating, the flybridge provides excellent visibility at the helm and spectacular panoramic views.

Designed with a powerful rig for excellent performance, the 6200 also has a stepped hull, which increases the interior volume while minimizing the wetted hull surface for increased efficiency and speed in the water. Two Yanmar 240Hp engines provide for speeds of 10 to 12 knots under power and excellent maneuverability.  The 6200 also features automatic dagger boards, which can be raised when heading downwind or under power for improved performance, or when mooring, or approaching shallow waters. Lowering the dagger boards improves upwind directional and speed performance.  This yacht is truly first class and an exceptional value for a boat of her size and amenities.

Captain: Chris Smith

CAPTAIN CHRIS "BIFF" SMITH

Captain Biff learned to sail in the Cub Scouts on an old coal pit quarry outside Manchester, UK. As soon as he was old enough to teach water sports, he packed his bags and headed for the Mediterranean to start his first ever sailing job.

Biff’s knowledge is extensive and his accomplishments are impressive. He was awarded a BA Honors in Maritime Leisure Management and holds many certifications including; Commercially Endorsed Yachtmaster Offshore, AC & Refrigeration Engineer, Advanced Dinghy, Windsurf, Powerboat, PWC, Keelboat, Multihull & Yacht Instructor. Biff managed a large activity team and hotel at a prestigious sailing resort in Porto Heli, Greece for many years before opening his own sailing school there with Amy. Together they have sailed, delivered boats and provided many holiday experiences throughout Europe and the Mediterranean.

Guest testimonials describe Biff as an excellent captain with repertoire of side splitting jokes!

Charters aboard GOOD VIBRATIONS can be as relaxing or high-energy as guests would like. Biff doesn’t tire easily, it’s a great opportunity to try something new under the guidance of a pro. Learn to water-ski, tie some knots, trim the sails or make a Painkiller! What is most important to Biff ? “I love to teach, I love to race, I love my girl. Always from the heart”, he says.

Chef: Amy Edmonds (41)
Chef: Amy Edmonds

CHEF AMY EDMONDS

Amy can hardly remember a time when she didn’t love to cook. She says, “I have enthusiastically been a chef for anyone who was hungry since I was little. I started when I was about nine years old, cooking for my family after I got home from school. I’ve really never stopped. I continued cooking throughout college and my overseas travels. I first learned to sail on holiday in Turkey, that’s when I realized that being a yacht chef fulfilled my two greatest passions, cooking and sailing.”

Amy has an extensive repertoire of recipes. Many are inspired by the dishes she learned to prepare during her world travels. She also has culinary certifications from Ashburton Cookery School & Chefs Academy, River Cottage & Orchard Cookery School and Cocoa Black Chocolate & Pastry School. Her personal favourite dish is pie. “But”, she says, “even I can’t bake them like my mum!” Charter guests’ love her West Indian Shrimp with Coconut Rice. This dish always gets rave reviews and recipe requests without fail.

Amy is a warm-heated, caring person. She is dedicated to ensuring that guests aboard GOOD VIBRATIONS have a superb charter experience. She wants everyone to know that despite hurricanes Irma and Maria, the Virgin Islands (British, Spanish & US) are still a fabulous charter destination. Paradise has undergone a transformation. Its beauty is a bit raw, yet even more relaxed and easy going. A chilled bottle of champagne, a mile of white sand, and a spectacular sunset. That’s a beach bar you’ll never forget!

Stewardess: Sherita Flowers (27)

Guest Comments below are for the prior Crew, Don & Petra

15 - 20 May, 2017 ~ A Beautiful and Memorable Sailing Trip!

1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Absolutely, loved them all!! we became great friends by the end of our trip and many traded email/facebook/contact information with the crew!

2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? Yes. Lots of space for 8 people to relax and not feel crowded, very comfortable beds, pillows could be a little softer, but the whole boat was always clean thanks to Sherita picking up after us 24/7!

3. Was the yacht well ventilated? Yes. Air conditioning in some bedrooms froze up periodically but we all knew how to handle it when/if it happened.... no big deal

4. Was the food good and well presented? Petra did an amazing job with such a small galley to work with for 8 guests! We were all in disbelief at the courses that came out every time. It was all delicious! Everyone was totally delighted with Petra's menus and presentation of the food and the table settings.

5. Did you like the area you sailed? Yes, perfect. LOTS of snorkeling areas which is what we wanted! Don provided us a great mixture of sailing/snorkeling/swimming/beach hopping, etc.. Nobody was disappointed with the scheduled route he took.

Don, Petra and Sherita were an amazing and fun crew to sail with. They all worked together to make us feel welcome, and ensured each of us were having a great time and had our safety as a top priority. Good Vibrations was everything we had hoped for, and we all loved that it was the only boat on the water with the underwater lighting! It was awesome to see and swim with the large tarpons that played around our boat in the evening....I will never forget that! FYI,The girls would recommend if going to the Baths, make sure you have a good walking shoe to navigate the trails (versus flip flops), otherwise the trek from the top down to the beach can be quite challenging. We were proud that we all made it though, and the beautiful pools in the caves at the end made made for some lovely pictures! Thanks for helping us arrange a beautiful and memorable sailing trip that we will cherish for years to come!

2017 New Years Tandem Charter ~ BVI ~ Incredible!!

This has, by far been the most incredible trip for our family that I could have imagined. Josee, Petra & Don – We have grown to love you!  Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our family.  Spending our evenings sharing dinners together and just relaxing watching the fish or looking at the stars was exactly what we had hoped for.

Much love to you all for the love you have shown us!

Heidi Mark, Mollie & Jack

Thank you for a wonderful trip.  We had a great time.  We will all go home with memories.  Wishing you all good health, love &happiness for the new Year.

November 5, 2016, BVI's ~ The trip of a Lifetime!!

Thank you for the most wonderful trip ever!  This has been the “trip of a lifetime” – from the beautiful scenery to the amazing cooking.  The snorkeling was awesome and we were able to see all the places we wanted. We so appreciated all the hospitality & fun.  Hope to come back again soon!

W Family

All I can say is “OMG”!!!! This has been the best experience EVER. I could have never imagined what an amazing trip this could be.  We have had friends do similar charters, but this is beyond anything we were told. The “Tiffany Blue” is awesome!  I cannot wait to go back and tell everyone what I know about this trip.  The crew was very experienced and the food was more amazing than imagined.  Petra is an amazing cook!  You guys have made this charter more than I could have thought. The expertise is beyond imaginable. This was a trip of a lifetime that will never be forgotten.  I look forward to our next charter with this same crew.  It was above and beyond anything…..I already miss the crew and I have not even left the boat.

Kris & Mark

What an experience Good Vibrations has been for our group!  The Crew were the most gracious hosts.  We never had to think about a thing because the crew took care of everything.  We never had an empty glass, empty stomach or un-made bed.  Petra’s cooking was unbelievable!  We are amazed she can create the most amazing meals in her tiny kitchen.  The Crew gave us the best information about where to go, what to do, and all the inside tips.

Good Vibrations is a gem of a boat!  Wherever we went we heard people commenting on how beautiful our boat is.  The Tiffany Blue is the perfect color for this beautiful paradise. 

Thank you for this trip of a lifetime!  We will never forget this trip.

Stacy & Brian

It’s the last night of our charter, sailing around the BVI’s on Good Vibrations.  We had such an amazing week I don’t know where to start!

Since the moment we stepped on the boat, my husband and I,along with 3 other couples that are all good friends, have had an awesome time.  Everything to do with the boat was expertly handled by the Captain and we felt so safe with him at the helm.  Petra was such an amazing chef; the food was just to die for.  Josee as our hostess was always available and kept things neat and tidy and was the perfect bartender.  The three of them work so well together and kept us entertained all week. They took us to the best places in the island.  We could not ask for a better vacation.  We can’t wait to come again!  Thank you!

Jen

August 10-17, 2016, St. Maarten ~ Fantastic!

Our week on Good Vibrations was FANTASTIC!  We were treated like kings and queens by Don& Petra while exploring the incredible beauty of these islands.  It was a rare chance for us to spend uninterrupted time together as a family.  We ate delicious food at all meals and were tugged along on the tube all day by Don.  It was one of the most incredible family vacations we’ve had!  Don was an expert captain, making us feel safe and taken care of at all times, and Petra tended to all our needs.  We can’t wait to come back.  In the meantime, we have incredible memories to take home. 

Jon, Heather, Meredith, Max & Ellie

Virgin Islands - April 2016 - Last minute replacement charter

I'm not sure we have ever been on such a fun and relaxing trip. Claire and I felt 'no worries'. The yacht was everything and more than we could have expected. It was great. The room, the finishes, everything about the yacht was first class. It stood out and folks always commented on the color. Dinghies would come around at night to view all the tarpon swimming under and around the vessel due to the spectacular underwater lights. 

The crew was first class. They knew exactly where to go, when to go and what to do when we got there. It was amazing to us how many folks knew Petra and how many folks she knew. On shore, or passing another yacht in the water, many folks seemed to know here and wished everyone well. Here cooking skills are incredible. We NEVER had a meal that was not over the top. She was great.

Jose' was amazing. She was always there to get us whatever we needed and would never let our glass run dry, no matter what it was filled with. She truly cared and was concerned about our happiness and well-being. Wonderful mate.

Captain Don was a breath of fresh air. He kidded around and was always working on something aboard to make it better. He was more than accommodating in taking us ashore or wherever we wanted to go. He was a history book of the homes on the islands and the vessels in the water. 

Again, I cannot stress enough how great our trip was. We will definitely plan another. Maybe this time with our children. Thank YOU for doing everything in your power to make this trip possible. 

Steve & Claire

Thank you so much for such a wonderful week. You have been an amazing crew. Petra the food has been out of the world. Don I hope my two boys, who are pilots get to meet you some day. They would be so envious of your travels. Josee you are one of the sweetest and most beautiful Canadians I have ever met. I wish the very best for all of you and will pray that we get to see each other again. Steve and I have never been on a trip like this.You guys rock. You always knew where to go and what to do and how to do it when we got there! You're a great team. We love you Steve and Claire This has been a fabulous trip. The islands, the food, the company has been wonderful. Each stop became our next favourite so each time and stop was better than the previous. Our trip that was equal was white water rafting the Grand Canyon twice. You took such great care of us each day. Thank you.

 Virgin Islands - April 2016 - Last minute replacement charter

We had a fabulous time! Lynne, you and Joe went out of your way to please us given all of the issues that occurred with boats and crews. Good Vibrations was beyond my expectations. The boat was beautiful and so comfortable and one of the prettiest catamarans in the BVI's.  Petra was so helpful in many ways, helping plan our days, our routes and our meals. She was in close contact with me by phone and texting from the time I knew Good Vibrations was to be our charter until we stepped bare footed on the boat. Petra and Josee even called me after we returned home to make sure we were all safe. Her menus and cooking were perfect from the presentation of the meals to enjoying the wonderful tastes! Josee treated us like Kings and Queens always offering us drinks (which we usually gladly accepted), setting beautiful tables and keeping our rooms as if we were in a 5 star Hotel. Good thing Don is young. He was busy doing the usual captain work of maintaining little issues that always need attention on beautiful boats and of course pulling out all the toys that we would decide we wanted for that day as well as toting all 8 of us around to the local beach bars in the tender. The charter was a trip to remember. So much beauty and peacefulness was seen in the BVI and many memories made amongst all of us including the crew. I hope to be able to do it again - it's an experience of a lifetime!

Thank you again for taking such good care of us.
Mary Beth


January 2016

This past week on Good Vibrations with you was by far our most memorable and fabulous trip to the BVI!! Not only was the scenery breathtaking, but your warmth, great sense of humor, and of course the exquisite cuisine made this a true week of heaven for families. We will never forget Captain Fung Fook with all his “buddies”, nor will we forget the super cool Petra whose personality and unforgettable laugh will stay with us forever. Best wishes to both of you for 2016. We would love to stay in touch. We promise to send you new customers and if you are in Miami or Minneapolis, you have a home to stay at, although we can’t promise meals as good as Petra’s. Many Thanks!!
Dave, Michelle, Sophie, Ron Sonia, Sarah and Jacob.

January 2016

Just wanted to tell you we had a fantastic cruise - easily our best ever - with Petra and Don on Good Vibrations. The boat is wonderful - clean, spacious, comfortable and beautifully maintained. But what really made the trip for us was Petra and Don. Petra is, as you said, an amazing chef; every meal was special, lovingly prepared and beautifully presented. As a cruise director, Petra took us expertly under her wing, using her enthusiasm and knowledge of the islands to create an itinerary that maximized the amount of enjoyment we got from our time.

Don was also a joy - calm and competent, thoroughly knowledgeable, always in good humor, terrific company
and great with the younger folks. By the second day, we felt as though both of these fine people were old friends.
