Another beautiful catamaran I visited recently at the 2017 Virgin Islands yacht show! This 2016 state of the art catamaran has a flybridge with seating and a 360 degree view, large trampoline areas and spacious aft deck plus a hydraulic swim platform which can be lowered for easy water access.

Santa Ana Wave 58’ Catamaran

Carolyn and Doug, your young and friendly charter crew on Santa Ana Wave 58' Catamaran in the Caribbean

What is popular in charter yachts changes over the decades naturally. In the last couple decades in catamarans I have seen Privilege 48’ or 51’ being popular, then Robertson and Caine 45’s and recently an upsurge in Lagoons—of all sizes. Sometimes at the boat shows they can blend together.
The excitement builds for me when I can see new models of yachts! The Wave 58’ is the second model from a new company in Poland.   I found it very intriguing to see the changes incorporated in a new model.
Santa Ana takes up to 6-8 guests, and the rooms are all different. All very spacious, but some have higher beds with steps up, some are floor level, and one is higher oversized twins that can be turned into a king sized bed easily.

Saloon on Santa Ana Wave 58' Catamaran

All the cabins have great light coming in and you will never feel claustrophobic with the amount of light coming in the yacht. Being a new yacht, the addition of sun screens in the saloon for the large windows which are sure to come will help with very hot Caribbean days.

A hydraulic swim platform? Yes Please!

Carolyn and Doug as your crew? Yes Please! Young, and fairly recent into the industry although a strong sailing background, Carolyn’s smile will knock you over from ten feet away.

“Doug’s friendly nature and vibrant sense of humor are trumped only by his wealth of knowledge pertaining to all things Caribbean. He loves sharing all the popular and exciting hot stops that the VI has to offer almost as much as he loves to whisk his guests away to the more secluded anchorages that showcase the untouched exotic beauty of the islands. Carolyn’s passion for food, wine and entertaining coupled with her appetite for knowledge built a strong foundation for her career in the hospitality industry. Having worked in restaurants for over twelve years, Carolyn has had the opportunity to fine-tune her understanding of wine and spirits and how they relate to a myriad of different cuisines.
She now focuses all of her boundless energy and brilliant creativity on the culinary masterpieces she creates for her guests. Her talent in the galley is underscored by her effortless ability to entertain.”

Grilled marinated shrimp skewers served with a lentil & tricolor quinoa saladour luncheon today on Santa Ana Wave 58' Catamaran

I was extremely fortunate to be invited on board for lunch in the British Virgin Islands, May of 2017 to meet the crew. The meal was beautifully presented and plated with Doug Grilling our shrimp and Carolyn handling the rest with aplomb! If there was one word for this yacht, it would be LIGHT. I felt part of the outside surroundings with all the light coming in through the windows and not in a dark hole.
