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 8 charter guests in 4 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.

Blue Horizon Crew Profile
Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, at a young age Trevor discovered that he had a wandering spirit and a lust for life and its many experiences. In his early 20´s, Trevor travelled and worked in many different countries where he amassed quite the collection of adventures. He can share a few while on charter!
In his late 20´s he decided to conquer his greatest fear - the ocean. He received his Skippers License in Durban and sailed the East and West coasts of South Africa, then crossed the Atlantic and into the beautiful Caribbean sea where he lived & worked on St. Martin. He worked on different boats and chartered sunset cruises on a 40´ motor yacht. When Hurricane Luis hit in 1995 Trevor stayed on the island helping to rebuild homes. A year later he sailed to the Azores & then headed back home and started up his own company building residential houses and a few high end homes. He continued working in the construction industry running turnkey projects and managing civil and steel construction sites until the Covid pandemic hit. During lockdown he reassessed his life and decided to reconnect with his passion for sailing and attained his Yachtmaster Offshore License.
In 2021 Trevor sold his home, his car, his motorbike and mountain bike and bought a 31´ yacht which he lived on with Sarah. They sailed the Cape waters and did a couple of deliveries around the Cape of Good Hope. Trevor & Sarah flew to St. Martin in January of 2022 where they worked a season chartering out of St. Martin, Aguila and St. Barths.
Trevor is at his happiest when he is at the helm on the open water trying to set the sails for a perfect course. He has a very calm and soothing demeanor which the guests always comment on and he loves chatting and getting to know the people he encounters. When not at the helm, you will find him paddleboarding, snorkeling, mountain biking, hiking or enjoying the outdoors, and to fully relax he loves to read.

Sarah was born in Zimbabwe and moved to South Africa at a young age. She always wanted to travel and in her mid-thirties decided to venture to the UK for a year. One year turned to fourteen after the travel bug hit! She has been to 52 countries & counting! A few of her biggest adventures include climbing Machu Picchu, taking a local boat through the Amazon & volunteering in the Borneo jungle.
Sarah is very much a free spirit and has always had a passion for the outdoors so she prefers to travel to more remote places. She worked multiple jobs simultaneously to fund her 3-5 months of backpacking and volunteering each year. There were various hospitality jobs which included working at Royal Ascot, The British Open and festivals around the UK and Scotland. In 2020 Sarah decided it was time for a new adventure, and headed back to South Africa to enroll in a couple of sailing and cooking courses before heading to the Caribbean. This was of course when Covid hit.
The plan then changed, and Sarah and Trevor bought a 31’ yacht in Cape Town in 2021 which they lived on for 8 months while Sarah learned to sail, realizing how much she loved being on the ocean. Even though it’s a newly discovered passion for Sarah, there is a long history of sailing in her family with her father and grandfather being in the navy, as well as her brother and nephews all working in the charter industry.
Sarah and Trevor now own a 43’ monohull which they have fixed up and plan to in the future sail around the world exploring. Sarah loves spending time in the kitchen trying out new dishes and recreating old recipes. She prefers using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients making lots of salads and delicious meals and desserts. She enjoys sharing typical South African dishes and her food is always made with love!
When not in the kitchen you will find Sarah somewhere in nature; snorkeling or hiking, exploring. She also enjoys reading and taking photos of the beauty which always surrounds us. Sarah’s motto is ´Live Life in Full Colour´!

Trevor, you were a great guide and bartender. Thank your for sharing this piece of paradise! Safe sails and journeys ahead!
Clarrisa and Shawn
A family vacation to remember. Sarah and Trevor went above and beyond to deal with having a 5 & 8 year old on board. The boys lived the boat life and lived in the dolphin seats. Thanks so much for your flexibility on meals (both time and content)!
This family trip was epic!
It will be talked about forever. The boat and tour were tops and so were our captain and first mate, Trevor and Sarah. We couldn´t have asked for more from you two. Thank you so much!
Trevor & Sarah,
What a fantastic week! So many highlights: Sarah´s delicious meals - you are an amazing cook. You spoiled us! Thank you Trevor for the amazing sailing during the crazy swells and weather. Your calm demeanor makes for a great captain. Thank you for all of the fun cocktails and conversation. We loved hearing your stories. We can´t wait for the next sail!
-Kim & Jim

Best of luck on all your future sailing adventure! You are welcome to visit us in Colorado!
