Catamaran PORT TO VINO is a Fountaine Pajot Ipanema 58, built in 2016. She is always one of the most beautiful catamarans presented at the Tortola Charter Show. PORT TO VINO was the Award Winning Yacht & Crew in 2019, at the BVI Annual Charter Yacht Show - 1st Place for Best Multi-Hull Over 56ft.
Her crew, Jeff and Caitlin, we have known for some time. They are dedicated and eager to create the most memorable charters for their clients.
Caitlin is a Marine Biologist and we particularly recommend catamaran PORT TO VINO to families with children who enjoy snorkelling. Caitlin will be a perfect guide for them.
There are a lot of games on board, including water games! This team is wonderful with children. And for anyone more active, the crew knows the best hiking trails on Norman Island, Virgin Gorda and Anegada.
Catamaran PORT TO VINO can accommodate up to eight guests in four en suite cabins:
- Master Cabin
- 3 double cabins

Crew Profiles - Jeff & Caitlin Nichols
We want to provide an exemplary charter experience whilst maintaining your vessel to a high standard. Safety always comes first, but that doesn't mean our guests can't have fun too! Are you interested in exploring the underwater world as well? We can guide you through the reefs while either diving or snorkeling just as comfortably as we navigate the islands above the water. We pride ourselves on making every charter a unique experience by catering to each guest's preferences and requests.
Neither of us ever imagined we'd be living and working on a boat, but can no longer imagine life anywhere else! Combined, we have over 30 years of diving experience, over half of which is in a professional capacity. We met working for a dive charter company in coastal North Carolina. Caitlin had completed a degree in Marine Science from Rutgers University and was aiming to increase her professional dive experience while Jeff was a newly minted captain after many years working abroad in Asia and Central America as a dive instructor. In the past seven years, we've worked in the US, Fiji, and the BVI, transitioning from resort and dive shop management to running charter boats and haven't looked back since!
