    Catamaran ALLENDE, the Fountaine Pajot Helia Evolution, is one of the most popular crewed catamarans in the British Virgin Islands. And no wonder their reputation is so great!
    Kristiann and Graham are a fantastic crew, knowledgeable, dedicated, imaginative and super efficient. They are accompanied by their beautiful dog, Friday. Friday is a seven-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer with sea legs. He's well-mannered and loves the water. He leaps off the front of the boat when at anchor and seduces other cruisers paddle boarding by to take him for rides. Friday can climb the swim ladder on his own. For guests who are pet-lovers, he is a much-loved addition to their charter. With advance notice, the crew is also happy to confirm Friday's home ashore.

    Catamaran ALLENDE offers a bespoke and luxury charter vacation for up to six guests in three queen-size en suite cabins. Each cabin features an en-suite bathroom with electric flush head, separate shower, sink and vanity cabinet with mirror. Catamaran ALLENDE showcases redesigned portholes in the cabins which increase natural light while maintaining privacy.
    Guests fall asleep on 400 thread-count Egyptian cotton linens topped with a cotton coverlet. Fluffy white towels for bathing and quick-drying Turkish towels for the beach are provided. Additionally, each cabin is fitted with individual A/C controls, an 110V power outlet, two reading lights, a fan and ample closet space and storage.

    Catamaran ALLENDE remains in the British Virgin Islands for the 2021 season – this means, the clients are enjoying quiet anchorages and snorkel sites unaffected by human pressure. It’s a glorious time to be on charter in the BVI. Here's the itinerary suggested by Kristiann & Graham – Catamaran ALLENDE Itinerary.

    Graham & Kristiann Gips
    Captain & Chef

    Graham is an engineer by training who spent a successful 10-year career in the oil and gas industry. He learned to sail on a 20ft racing dinghy with Kristiann as crew. They raced weekly for several years, topped the local podium and earned the chance to compete internationally.

    If you are new to sailing, Graham would love to teach you how much fun it can be to helm and tune the sails. He knows the islands well and can craft an itinerary that suits everyone aboard. When the anchor is set each evening, Graham turns his attention to crafting cocktails to your taste.

    From 2011-2015, Kristiann ran a successful catering company. She honed her culinary skills by accommodating a wide variety of preferences and dietary needs each day. She loves to combine gourmet ingredients with local delicacies for new twists on classic dishes.

    Avid travelers, Kristiann and Graham have lived on four continents and visited over 40 countries. Their experiences have taught them that great vacations are made up of many small details. Kristiann delights in tailoring the menu and creating special moments for each group of guests aboard.

    In 2015, Graham and Kristiann reached a point where they could focus on what they love to do most: travel, host guests, and sail. They have sailed Allende since her launch in France, cruising the Bay of Biscay, Mediterranean Sea and crossing the Atlantic to meet you in the British Virgin Islands. Both Graham and Kristiann hold a Masters 50-ton license from the United States Coast Guard and are CPR/First Aid certified.

    Graham and Kristiann welcome you to share in the luxurious life aboard Allende.
