Blue Horizon Description

The Bali 4.8 design was new to the market in 2020 and provided a fresh approach to sailing. The design is revolutionary in how space is accessed, with deliberate attention to flow and open space. It succeeds in producing a scale that feels less like a boat, and more like an upscale floating condominium. Bali catamarans are known and appreciated for their unparalleled success in blending luxury, space, and performance; producing a sailing experience that is unparalleled. This new design further capitalizes on that reputation with the advent of the “Bali garage door” that is the centerpiece of the yacht. It allows for the aft wall of the yacht to simply disappear, opening up the back of the yacht to an unobstructed view of paradise. This also affords indoor/outdoor dining options and gives the ever-present Caribbean breeze ample opportunity to make its way through the yacht with ease. With her solid foredeck gone are the forward trampolines, replaced by a large relaxing lounge area complete with cushions for sunbathing. A full-sized door provides access directly from the lounge area into the salon, allowing free movement through the yacht. A walk up to the flybridge unveils a seating area perfect for cocktails and taking in sunsets. There is also another area for sunbathing on the flybridge where you can take in the sights of the islands from the highest vantage point on the yacht. The Bali open space design is further complimented by the superior outfit of Blue Horizon. No detail has been left unnoticed from the fine linens, pillows and throws to the wine glasses, serving and flatware that make every day feel luxurious. She has been stocked full with every appliance and kitchen accessory to allow the chef to fully showcase the mastery of their art. And the water toys abound, allowing guests to fully experience all the Caribbean has to offer, both in and out of the water. Blue Horizon will accommodate 6 guests in 3 spacious queen cabins. She has a custom sun shade for the front of the yacht, solar panels, air conditioning, water maker, ice maker, full sized refrigerator, a fully customizable menu, Caribbean made ecofriendly and reef safe toiletries, a bar stocked to guest preference, coffee/espresso machine, rendezvous scuba diving, snorkeling gear, underwater scooters, subwing, wakeboard, water skis, 2 stand up paddle boards, towable water tube, 10 ft. floating dock, pool noodles, fishing gear, board and card games, television in the salon, Fusion 3 Bluetooth enabled sound system and Blue Horizon giveaways.

Jamie & Thea
Jamie was born in Zimbabwe and started out working life in the field of electrical engineering and building construction. After leaving Zimbabwe in 1984 with his wife Thea and their young children, they lived for 11 years in the beautiful wilds and outdoors of Botswana. Subsequently they spent 8 years in Cape Town and here Jamie started following his dream and with friends and family began recreational sailing around the unpredictable African wild East and West coasts and off Cape Town. After landing a job as a Projects Manager in the UK, he and Thea moved to the United Kingdom where they have lived for 10 years. It was in these waters Jamie decided that a 9 to 5 job was not for him and so decided to pursue a professional sailing career in the yachting industry and in the process has sailed the strong tidal waters of the Solent off Portsmouth and Southampton and up the West and East coast of UK, including cross channel sailing to the Channel Islands, France and the Brittany coasts. He now holds the RYA Yacht Master Certification. In addition to sailing the coasts of South Africa, the U.K., he has also sailed briefly in the Bahamas and the Caribbean islands of St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Jamie’s electrical engineering, building and managerial background contribute to his captain’s skills, expert seamanship and in-depth understanding of the varied mechanical, electrical and digital systems aboard Yachts. Jamie also holds the PADI open water diving qualification and loves exploring the beauty below the waves.

Thea was born in South Africa and at a very young age moved to Zimbabwe, where she met and married Jamie. She pursued careers in retail merchandising, accounting and hospitality both in Africa and the UK. She has always loved cooking and whilst in Cape Town owned her own bistro. Thea loves sports and the outdoors, having played tennis and hockey at club level and enjoyed water skiing. Since moving to the UK, Thea took more interest in yachting, and immediately hopped on board with Jamie’s decision to pursue a sailing career and rekindled her love for cooking by attending the renowned Ashburton School of Cookery in Devon, England where she did the Mediterranean and Fish and Seafood courses. She is looking forward to putting her culinary and social skills to work for guests aboard BLOSSOM in the BVIs with her husband Jamie.

Jamie and Thea’s life experiences in Africa and the United Kingdom combined with their sailing, world travel and gourmet cooking, and not forgetting the best BBQ´s / South African ´Braai´s´, and their warm hospitality, will guarantee you the vacation of a lifetime, every time, aboard the Luxury Catamaran BLUE HORIZON.

Great Trip!

Jamie and Tia,

Thank you for a wonderful time! You got us to great snorkeling and nice moorings. It was so great getting to know you and I am in awww of all that you have experienced. Wonderful food, great weather (after the first day) and fair seas. Enjoy your new granddaughter!

The most wonderful and delightful five days ever with the most wonderful and delightful hosts, Thea and Jamie . Thank you!

-Patsy & Don Devine
N. Palm Beach, FL

Jamie & Thea,

It is not the islands nor the beautiful sailing or the incomparable snorkeling that we will remember most, it was the pure entertainment of witnessing Thea with her talent in the kitchen and her well armed within keeping our beloved Don D under control. Jamie, you are a star captain who no doubt can navigate us through anything. It was pure bliss – I can’t remember a more relaxing vacation with two more extraordinary hosts. Can’t wait to come back! Let us know when that baby arrives!

-Jane Miller & Chip Pelcims

March 2024

Jamie and Thea,

When we decided to do this bucket list trip, we had an idea of what to anticipate and look forward to, but you both managed to make it much more than we could have imagined. You welcomed us on your boat with gracious hospitality, and helped us all have a once in a lifetime family vacation. The food with all the meals was spectacular and the expert navigation and answering our non-stop questions gave us certainty and feeling always that we were in good hands. We hope you think of the Verkuilen family If you ever come to the Carolinas. We wish you continued love and partnership. Thank you!

-The Verkuilen´s

March 2024

Thea & Jamie ,

As the years of notes say, you two are the best at what you do. Boating, cooking, adventures, and creators of memories.
But what I will lead with, is your blessing of knowledge. Sharing with each of us lots of wisdom and examples of a loving husband and wife. Working together, almost without words yet with love and respect in each look. The tenderness in which you question each other, the trust and forgiving nature we witnessed was a true testament to your 45+ years of friendship and love.
We loved the pride we heard as you shared about your childhood, family, two amazing children and beloved grandchildren. You listened as we shared our family stories and about dealing with the responsibility of care for our parent as we dealt with our mom in the hospital. Thank you for your willingness to give advice and share wisdom with us.
You’re love for chartering, boats, and working in the islands was also priceless.
Others may have said it but we mean it… please allow us to share Charleston and Dallas with you both!

We had an amazing time all because of you, Thea and Jamie!!!

All our friendship,

Lynette and Madison & Jennifer and Robert

P.S. Thanks for a perfect second honeymoon!

February 2024

Jamie and Thea,

Wow! What an incredible week! Your friendliness, hospitality, and sailing/boat skills are amazing. The admiral/chef presented us with the most wonderful meals. (We are headed home with a few extra pounds.) Your personalities totally fit your occupations. Conversation was very interesting. Above and beyond meeting all of our needs. Hope to cross paths with you again, either in BVI or Belize. We wish you nothing but happiness and health!

Best Always,

Gary and Cheryl Sharp & John and Diane Kubic

Thea & Jamie,

The memories from this trip are ones that we will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for showing us first timers the beauty of the BVIs and inspiring us with a way of life that emphasizes the joy of simplicity and the thrill of adventure. It has been an honor to share your home as your hospitality was truly first class. Thank you for all the laughs, all the wonderful conversations, and the fantastic food and drinks. Especially Jamie’s heavy-handed pours.

This is part two of Travis and Tina’s message to you both…
1.) Thank you Thea for your amazing chef skills. I will spend the rest of our marriage trying to measure up.
2.) Thank you Jamie, for always staying close by on the dinghy, even when I never made it to Willy T’s and went head first getting back in!
3.) Especially thank you both for your kindness and professionalism.

You made our honeymoon unforgettable!!

God bless you both & all the very best,

XOXO- love,

Travis and Tina.

Jamie & Thea,

As we depart for Tortola after 6 glorious days in the BVI, we can´t imagine our experience could have been any better without the hospitality and caring of the Moon Blossom Captain and crew, Jamie & Thea. You have made a lifetime of memorable moments for us, the exquisite food, seamlessly executed itinerary and great conversations. Thank you for contributing to our experience and making our first trip to the BVI among the top memories we have had for our lifetime.
Cheers!!
Jeff & Brenda

May 2023

Dear Jamie & Thea,

Thank you for creating the most wonderful experience for us. I never thought I would experience such luxury and simplicity (5 star dining al fresco then sleeping under the stars!) delivered with care, fun and humor.

Jamie´s itinerary and seamanship were perfect - thank you for all the activities, reservations and dinghy rides. Thea - you are a fabulous chef and storyteller. Thank you both for keeping us entertained.

The only thing I would do differently is spend more time with you - everything else was perfect. Please know, we will always remember you and find us anytime in R.I.

Best,
Martha & Doug

Wow, where do I start? Jamie and Thea? You two have been amazing from the moment we arrived on board until sadly we had to step off. Everything has exceeded our expectations. We never worried about a thing. Trusted our week completely to you both. Thea, you are an amazing chef, producing awesome meals. You are always on point. Also, we enjoyed watching your first mate skills and keeping Jamie straight. Conversations with both of you were also very enjoyable. Jamie, your calmness and competence were very soothing throughout the week. We love your laugh, and the agendas for each island were perfect!
We can’t thank you enough for a perfectly amazing week! It was so fun and relaxing. We hope to see you again somewhere! Best wishes always and much love!

What an unforgettable trip aboard the Moon Blossom...

Captain Jamie and Chef Thea - we can´t thank you enough for your hospitality, wit, professionalism, delicious food, and cheekiness!

Our high maintenance crew appreciate you and will never forget Stephanie´s 40th birthday!

The first seafood tower was incredible. We ill tease Matt every time he asks for ketchup going forward(lol) and we will use cheeky chick and oye in our conversations.

May you enjoy the rest of your year sailing and enjoy time with your grandson in October.

Thank you & Bon voyage

February 2023

Jamie & Thea,

I´m struggling to put into words how truly AMAZING this trip has been. The service felt next level. Every detail is so well thought out and you welcomed us into your home with open arms.

Every part of our journey was magical. And all of your recommendations were spot on! The Indians offered the best snorkeling. Copper Island and The Bitter End were fantastic overnight stays. Night swimming is a must! Anegada was the biggest surprise and probably our boat´s favorite experience.

Jamie you are incredibly thoughtful and kind. You were extraordinarily patient with our entire crew. And you explained everything so well! Thea, you are a force of nature! You´re freaking hilarious and you added the proper amount of ´mom´ to our trip. Every meal was dynamite too!

I want to make something super clear for anyone reading this: you guys helped create (and were a large part) or one of the most UNBELIEVABLE trips of our lives. Whether you know it or not, we will always remember you gus and how special you made my 50th birthday. We will send more folks your way and I hope we are able to stay in touch in some small way.

Thank you both from the bottom on our hearts
-Jason and Sarah
-Bob and Mary
-Brendan and KElly

PS. Hopefully the memory of how much wine we spilled will fade away and be replaced by fond thoughts for ´at sea with ´73´

Great Trip

Thank you, both for your hard work and teamwork to make our charter truly memorable. Laura and I as well as our other friends appreciated the locations you selected, and the food was amazing! It was a pleasure getting to know you, and you will always be a part of the Luca family! You both are living examples that work is a blessing, we hope you keep doing this service to the world as long as you want to. If you ever go sailing in the country, look for us up, we would certainly host you and your family.

Best,

Erik & Laura Luca

What A Wonderful Time

Jamie & Thea,

We are so fortunate to have you as our host. BVI was spectacular. 15 years ago we spent a week on Jost Van Dyke, and vowed to come back under sail and you made that dream come true! Thank you for your hospitality and so many memories. I’m sure there are times when you think I’m too old for this but you, you touch so many people and have a real gift for making magic happen. I hope you enjoy your day off, and the peace and quiet. We think about you and Moon Blossom often, and will wonder where you are sailing.

Best,
Brett & Michelle Baid

We absolutely loved our New Years vacation!

Our crew took us to a private beach that was absolutely the best beach we have ever visited! Our crew made many recommendations to allow us to choose from the best places on the islands!

The yacht was excellent. The cabins were extremely clean and comfortable.
Even the mattress was way more comfortable than I expected. The bathrooms
were very nice and spacious. There was plenty of space for sun or shade.

Thea was amazing to meet all our preferences. One of our mates had significant
dietary restrictions and Thea did an amazing job of helping her keep her diet
restrictions! The meals were delicious and presented in a beautiful fashion.

We snorkeled and used the floats. It was plenty to meet our needs.
Jamie and Thea were very kind, pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed every second
we were able to spend with them. We exchanged stories that were so fun!
The pace was perfect for us! Jamie even took us to a beach we requested that
he said he´d never gone too with a charter and it was our favorite!
This was such a lovely vacation and we only went to 1/2 the places we wanted
to go. We must return to hit the rest of the places!

Thank you so much for being a part of this special celebration (Brads 60th)! You made every part of our five days special and memorable… from the food, hospitality and destinations provided so many fun memories. The list of things experienced is astonishing, the Baths, Anegada, Saba Rock, Leverick, Michael Beans Pirate Show, Foxy’s, Soggy, Willy T’s, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and Thea’s meals. Wow! And sharing our special moment. May you continue with all your success, keep healthy and sail on. Thanks again for all you’ve done!

What a lovely time we have had these past six days with Jamie and Thea on Moon Blossom in the BVIs. Jamie planned a great itinerary based off our ideas of places we’d like to go and things we thought of doing and helped us to adjust the plan based on weather conditions and time of day as well as travel time. Thea has cooked absolutely memorable meals. Our ratings on a scale of one to five are six stars! They have accommodated all our request to get water toys out and take us places in the tender. On top of that, they have shared their knowledge of the Island ways, we are from landlocked Nevada, USA. We completely enjoyed their company, conversations and confidence. What a wonderful, relaxing, peaceful, and beautiful time we have had. Thank you so much Jamie and Thea!

Dear Jamie & Thea,
Let us as well express our gratitude to spending a week with you on Moon Blossom. EVERYTHING was prefect, from the wonderful cooking, navigating, mooring sites, snorkeling (you still owe us a turtle!) and accommodations. It was as well a pleasure to get to know both of you and converse over a myriad of topics. We clearly made the right choice in choosing you guys and Moon Blossom. Not only that, but we greatly appreciate you controlling the weather for us!
Echo above. Getting to know both of you was a wonderful experience. The entire week was Spectacular.

Thanks for a fantastic week of fun. The sailing, scuba, snorkeling, drinks and just plain relaxing were absolutely wonderful. Your attention to every detail in ensuring our comfort was truly appreciated from chilling the wine to bringing in the dinghy to greet us from the bars and nightlife of the islands! We hope to all return to the BVI soon, hopefully reuniting us again some day!

Warm regards,
Andre, Trish, Rachel, Lily & Ryan

Thanksgiving 2019

Thea & Jamie -
Wanted to express how amazing the trip was. First, the boat - Moon Blossom is beautiful and unbelievably comfortable. Everyone had their own space and the fly bridge is nothing short of awesome. Second, the islands - the anchorages, scenery, and activities were exactly what we were looking for. Last, but certainly not least, the Crew - you guys are great. No matter the situation you guys nailed it. Every anchorage was just right, every meal was spot on, you engaged but provided space, the little details were awesome and the Thanksgiving meal was memorable. Everything you did was classy and well thought out. Not only will we be back but we´d be happy to share our great experience with anyone who asks.

Simply pit - AMAZING!! OUTSTANDING!! Our week´s journey passed too fast, packed with so much exploration but not without relaxation. We ate like Kings & Queens and were spoiled rotten. Thea - our Thanksgiving dinner was FABULOUS - your sweet thoughtfulness to research and gather all of the traditional food to make your home our home away from home for Thanksgiving. Moon Blossom & you are BOTH a TREASURE!! Our first charter will certainly not be our last.
THANK YOU FROM OUR HEARTS!!

What a wonderful way to open up the new year! Here in the BVI on the beautiful Blossom Cat, with the most awesome Captain and his wonderful wife who treated Jeff and I as gold. The food was very nice and tasty as well and never over cooked! Presentation equally as well.
Just want to thank them both for a job well done, it will be an experience that I will always remember and that is saying a lot because I don´t remember much. I believe Jeff was very impressed as well because he told me so.
We wish them all the best of luck with future charters and hope all their guests as as pleased as we were. No doubt about that.
Many more good years to you, we can tell you love what you do!
Hugs & stay safe!

November 2018

Dear Thea & Jamie,
Thank you so much for a most delightful trip! Right from the moment we stepped on board we felt at home. Every aspect of the experience made it a dream - the food, the fun, the secluded beaches, the starry nights! Even the ´Great Northern Caribbean Orange Spotted Towel!´ Or the casually floating away little cushion!
Or the casually floating away little cushion! We really enjoyed every little thing this boat had. You two are the ultimate dynamic duo! We loved getting to know you and hearing your stories. Thank you for showing us the best the BVI has to offer, and for all the new experiences (waterskiing for starters)! Not to forger all the healthy morning smoothies & yoga!!

Thank you for a wonderful time on board blossom! It became our home, you were both wonderful. Hope we see you again!

All the best,
Nikhil, Mandria, Rohan, Rishabah

Thoroughly Enjoyable!

Dear Captain Jamie and Thea,
Thank you so very much for a thoroughly enjoyable time from our point of origin to our point of departure. Everything exceeded our expectations.

You both love what you do, and it was so obvious to both of us.

Love,

Generous hospitality...

Dear Jamie and Thea,
We can´t thank you enough for your kind and generous hospitality. The trip exceeded all expectations and created memories that will last a lifetime. The opportunity to spend New Years eve at the Bitter End was made even more special with your son Grant and his Fiance Tara. We felt like honorary members of your clan and ringing in 2016 could not have been better! Your attention to every detail made our every hope for this trip a reality. It is great to see a couple as happy together as the two of you. Your enthusiasm and passion is truly infectious.
Alright, enough of this sentimental stuff...Lets raise a glass of Rum and celebrate great times + great new friends.
Love, Bobby, Mellissa, Mike & Kelley

Amazing!

Jaime and Thea,
What an adventure we have had together. Beautiful bays and coves, perfect overnight locations, crazy strong winds, rain clouds keeping Jaime on his feet, THE BATHS, seeing most of the best spots the BVI has to offer. Thea´s and my crazy steep drive over Tortola to the Road Town clinic, coughing & more coughing, Jaime putting on the Chefs hat, beautiful sunny days & clear blue water.
Thea you have wrecked my husband for my future cooking. I will aspire to follow in your amazing food foot steps.
Both of your big hearts, kind nature & ´welcome aboard to your boat´ attitude made our week with you amazing!!
Adriane & Michael

Wonderful week

Jamie and Thea,
Thank you both for such a wonderful week. The food was absolutely delicious every night (as were the drinks...) and you took us to some wonderful places that suited us perfectly. Thank you also for being so kind to the kids (and chatting with them while we slept) You were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome and incredibly well looked after!
The Sacks family

Perfect vacation...


Our vacation was perfect from start to finish. The hospitality incredible, the food wonderful and the destinations just beautiful. Thea & Jamie were gracious hosts and WOW can Thea cook. Jamie knew exactly where to take us for the best diving and scenery.
We highly recommend J&T for the very best vacation.
Stacey and Larry

We needed this...

Simply put, this is the vacation we desperately needed. After a year of nonstop work and stress, this was what we needed most. Thanks for seeing to our very need and desires throughout the trip. Your expertise and suggestions on mooring sites helped us to navigate beyond the over crowded beaches and bays of the high season. The meals were fantastic and desert was a perpetual ´yes´ when we didn´t think we could eat anymore. The boat is our favorite so far because of the large suites and overall wonderful layout. Our highest complements to the crews and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
Best wishes and thank you for everything.
Jeremy and Emily

Dear Jamie and Thea,
We want to thank you both for the wonderful opportunity to spend our vacation with both of you. We have sailed in the BVI many times since 1980.
You were both accommodating, helpful, friendly, kind and generous with your time and talents. The food was delicious and presented in such a lovely way. Your knowledge of the islands was unsurpassed. Thank you for keeping is SAFE.
Love,
Bill and Robin

Best birthday!

We came for Janis´s birthday on the 32rd...and what a week this has been. Jaime and Thea...you have been like real friends, welcoming and courteous. This was our first experience on a sail boat and will be remembered for ever. We saw the best of the Virgin Islands-very beautiful beaches, The food was excellent and the company exquisite. We certainly licked out and feel very privileged to have met you and spent the week. Your boat is immaculate. The service was so attentive...indeed a privilege and a great experience. Best of luck with all your future charters.
We would love to do this again.
Janis and Guy

Absolutely fabulous!

´Absolutely fabulous!´

´We sailed with my wife and 2 daughters, 9 and 8. We all loved Jamie and Thea and highly recommend them for any charter. ´

´From the moment we met Jamie and Thea it was if we had known them for years. They are the consummate hosts and meet your every need before you even know you have one! This is the best boat with the best hosts in the BVI. We will be back!´

´What a wonderful experience this was! Jamie and Thea were an absolute joy to be around. They had a wonderful sense of humor and great knowledge of the BVIs. We loved spending NYE with them. I can´t wait to book our next adventure!´

´It was our friends first time chartering and in the BVI so it was great fun to be with them and share. Thea and Jamie were exceptional hosts! Clean and relaxing environment, wonderful sized staterooms and baths, Thea´s food was wonderful and she did a great job catering to one of our folks who is a ´little bit picky´, Jamie and Thea both showed us the ropes on chartering - teaching us along the way. Couldn´t have asked for a better boat or crew! ´

Therapeutic and wonderful...

Dear Thea and Jamie,
Thank you for an amazing week of food, snorkeling, and exploring the beautiful islands. You have made us feel completely at home and relaxed. It has been therapeutic and wonderful family time. We are blessed to have met both of you and look forward to sailing with you again in the future.

All the best to you-

Amazing week...

Just wanted to say thank you for the amazing week we spent on the boat. It was our first time sailing, but definitely not our last. The boys had a blast and don´t even want to go home. Thank you for the amazing food and Elan´s birthday party. Hope to see you again on our next charter!

-Akiva, Ora, Elan, and Eliam

Incredible

Dear Jamie and Thea,
We can´t thank you enough for the great vacation. Your knowledge of the islands and kindness with putting up with 3 crazy teenage boys is everything we could have hoped for. The food and drinks were incredible and your attention to us was something we aren´t used to! Wishing you many happy sunsets in the future.

I had a fabulous time! Thank you for teaching me everything.

This was probably the most relaxing trip I´ve ever taken. Thank you for your generosity.

What an outstanding week you´ve given us here in the BVI. The sights we´ve had the pleasure of seeing thanks to y´alls suggestions were nothing short of spectacular! We can´t even describe how wonderfully tasty all the meals and snacks were! (yes, diet starts tomorrow). Your friendship and laughter added so much to the week. Thank you both so much for everything. Remember, y´all are always welcome in Texas! And Coco, the island boy may try to keep you. His tank can float a boat.

All the best,
