Her main deck has two alfresco dining spots, forward and aft, the forward dining area can also convert into a large sunbed.

Crew Profile

Captain Chris Baxter- American:
Upon arriving onboard WATERSHED II you will instantly find Chris’s southern charm and kind smile to welcome you.  Chris was born in Charleston SC and has had the opportunity to travel extensively with his family as a young boy. He spent 20 years as a manager for an international company before leaving the States to sail the world. His passion for boats and the ocean got him involved in sailing at an early age. He has a 200 ton USCG Masters license and since 1985 has logged over 40,000 ocean miles.
His experiences running a 103’ sport fish, an 80’ sailboat and years of cruising formed the foundation for work in the industry. Previous work includes running sailboats in Australia and Asia and he’s spent the last 10 years traveling throughout the Caribbean. As captain of WATERSHED II since 2010 he is excited to share his knowledge and sense of adventure with his charter guests. Chris is an Advanced PADI certified diver and is CPR and First Aid certified.

Recently, she has logged over 20,000 miles with her husband, Chris, on board their 50ft. sailboat. For eight years they cruised the Western Caribbean, South Pacific, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore before returning to the States.
Maggie has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with majors in Accounting and Management. She worked for 20 years with a non-profit organization as an accountant and communications director before she and Chris went sailing.
During her travels Maggie enjoyed taking cooking classes and specializing in Asian and Cuban Cuisine. She is fluent in English, Spanish and French. She is a certified SCUBA diver and CPR and First Aid certified.

1st Mate Armando Valdes:

Armando has sailed the coast of Florida and the Bahamas since he was a young boy, and he sailed the South Pacific prior to his 18th birthday.

My client was delighted with the yacht and crew on WATERSHEDII.  The client that referred me to them was also very complimentary of Chris and Magie and Watershed. They were very happy with the whole turn out and made it a point to say what great crew they were. Thank you again!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week on WATERSHED II and we loved the crew!  It was a little different experience than a big boat as we felt like we were traveling with friends as opposed to the over the top (in a good way!) service of a bigger boat.  The boat was beautiful and the perfect size for our family. We hope to travel by yacht again in the future—it is an amazing experience!

Sailing on WATERSHEDII was an amazing experience!  Chris, Magie and Sarah anticipated our every need and went out of their way to guarantee that we enjoyed ourselves.  Magie is an excellent cook!  Her meals were inventive and delicious.  You could also tell that she made every effort to follow our preferences. Chris did a great job of giving us a variety of locations.  He presented us with options every morning and let us help decide where we should spend the day. The boat was perfect.There are so many outdoor options that finding the perfect spot to spend sometime was never a problem.  I can't think of a thing that could have been improved upon and hope to spend more time with them next year.

You did it again!  They give you all an A++.  She said you, Maggie and Armando are amazing.  They were SO impressed with the service, your genuineness and all the nice touches like handing them their coffee every morning just how they like it, the orchids, the special anniversary dinner celebration, etc.  They loved Maggie’s meals and hands down Armando is the best bartender - and he cooks too!  They thought it was so cool how you’d disappear into the walls to give them privacy and all of a sudden you appeared when their glass was empty!  Chris, they enjoyed learning about boats, and your vast knowledge.  You let them make the decisions on where to go and what to do, as if it were their boat.  They definitely want to charter with you again.

The clients were extremely happy with their trip they enjoyed everything and the yacht was fab.  The crew were great and really friendly and cooked lovely meals. I know Mr B personally and he can be a ‘challenging individual’ so the fact that he had a good time is really great.

HOLY SMOKES!!!  WHAT A BLAST!!! AND WHAT AN AMAZING CREW!!!  WE LOVE THEM!!!
We had sooooo much fun with Maggie, Chris and Armando!!!  They are pure gems!  We miss them dearly, already!   I can't say enough about how attentive they were and how well they took care of all of us.  Maggie went out of her way to make sure I always had something gluten free to eat and Armando made sure he always had the Ciroc, beer, vodka, towels, water, etc on every adventure!  Chris was so kind and sweet.  He always made sure we were all taken care of.  I can't say enough about how incredible our journey was with our new friends, Maggie, Chris and Armando.  We will never forget how much fun we had with them.  We hope to see them again. We all cried when we had to leave them at the dock. Thank you so much!

Dear Chris & Magie, 
They said it was the BEST vacation they'd ever had.  It was better than expected.
I asked them about the condition of the boat, if there were any areas that needed improvement and they said it no, it was perfect.  They loved Maggie's meals and never ate out once.  They just kept gushing about all of you and the trip.  One thing they said was that you treated them like they were the owners of the boat.  What a great compliment so congratulations to all of you!  And thank you.  Good call on the big tender too.  I can tell you and the owner run a great program.

You three made our trip so special we cannot thank you enough.  WATERSHED II is spectacular and beautiful and made so by you. We already have friends that are interested in your trip. We are telling everyone we know how wonderful it is. We only hope we are able to sail with you again. Jo Ann and I plus our family have traveled all over the world and this was the most special vacation of all and our kids have the same opinion.
