About the property

Luxury Caribbean yacht charters aboard Aliwe Aliwe can accommodate 6 guests

Step aboard Aliwe and enter a world of complete Caribbean yacht charter luxury. This catamaran is the latest yacht out of the Royal Cape shipyard featuring all of the beautiful style and design elements that have made their Majestic series so popular with charter guests.

The staterooms, interior salon and galley spaces are set off by gleaming light woodwork throughout.

The 3 guest suites offer privacy and comfort with huge headroom, big, soft beds and ensuite bathrooms with electric toilets and separate showers.

Chose Aliwe for the newest modern style in Caribbean yacht charters. As delightful as the cabins are, Caribbean yacht charter guests spend most of their times taking in the gorgeous scenery from the outdoor spaces.

On Aliwe, the indoors flows seamlessly into the covered aft lounge.

Guests will find plenty of seating around the big table or cocktail table for meal time or lounging between snorkel stops.

A fishing station/wetbar along the aft deck offers two pole rests and a sink and barbecue for cleaning and grilling the days’ catch.

A stairway curves up to Aliwe’s best feature: the flybridge and lounge. Bench seating give guests a comfortable place to view the sailing with 360 degree views.

A refrigerator keeps cocktails cold for happy hour and a toast to the best Caribbeane yacht vacation under the sun!

Interested in a fun-filled, exciting time aboard Aliwe with the perfect Captain and Chef/Mate combo? Then Collin and Corinne are your team!

Collin and Corinne discovered their love for the outdoors and outdoor activities growing up on wildlife reserves in South Africa. They love waterskiing, wakeboarding, scuba diving, sailing, dirt bike riding, camping, hiking and hunting, clearly an active couple. They relocated to the USA 15 years ago and raised their family with the same intense exposure to watersports and the outdoors at their house on Lake Anna, Virginia and their game reserve in South Africa. Adrenalin junkies alike they have also bungee jumped the highest commercial jump in the world, dived with great white sharks, white water rafted the Zambezi Gorge and scuba dived the Great Barrier Reef.

Collin’s love for sailing grew during his conscription in the South African Navy as a Naval Officer. He has skippered sailing charters in the BVI’s, Grenadines and Turkey. His love for people is evident the minute you meet him.

Corinne’s attention to detail, eye for elegance and creativity can be seen through her décor style, tasteful table settings and artistic culinary skills. Her love for food preparation and hosting expanded through cooking and entertaining for friends, small corporate management teams and eventually event planning.

As ‘empty nesters’ they are finally able to enjoy the hospitality and sailing lifestyle they are so suited to and have always dreamed of.

“We couldn’t say enough about the wonderful memories we have created thanks to the Steyn’s. Each and every time Collin and Corinne have hosted us we have experienced nothing but utmost perfection and you will feel like old friends from the minute you meet them. They are amazing hosts, genuine and entertaining personalities and attention to detail was exceptional.” Tracy and Larry

Aliwe provides all of this luxury and pampering for an amazing value. 6 guests can experience Aliwe and the Virgin Islands, for 8 days and 7 nights, for $3,000 per person, all-inclusive. All you have to do is fly to St. Thomas, we take care of everything else! Aliwe is also available at a Captain and boat only rate (no food or drinks) for $11,000 for a week.

So, pack your flip flops and come experience the Virgin Islands aboard Aliwe!

About Derek Hunsinger

After "retiring" to the caribbean in 2008, with one catamaran and a ton of energy, Brenda and Derek now have 24 boats that we own/co own and manage thru our small family business iyachtclub.

We work and play with the crews, so we know them well. We see the yachts frequently, so we know their condition and their features. From the time you land to start your adventure, to the time you say goodbye, you can be assured that we have done everything possible to make sure that the yacht and crew are prepared, that your transition from airport to yacht is smooth and that your every expectation is met and exceeded.

Exploring the Caribbean by boat has been a huge part of our family’s lifestyle since our kids were very young. As a family, we are passionate about delivering amazing customer service and helping guests to experience and love the islands the way we do! So give us a try. We promise to make your yacht charter affordable, make it easy, and make it fun!
