Captain Julian
Julian is a native Texan, growing up in the city of Houston, which is 50 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. His love for the ocean started at a young age with father and son fishing trips to the Texas Gulf Coast. As time passed, he became an experienced outdoors-man and fostered the love for it with camping, fishing, hunting and obtaining his SSI diving certificate. Some of the most memorable moments where his experiences captaining his family’s boat at a young age to various offshore destinations and coming home with ice chests full of catch.

Julian attended and graduated private school and continued his education at the University of Houston to obtain his BBA in Business Management. He has worked in the energy business for 25 years. Eleven of those years were spent running his own consulting company, advising both domestic and international clients in their day to day operations.

Julian and Chef/1st Mate, Shawn, made the decision to live out their dreams, and became captain and crew of Cashmere. The desire to share their knowledge of the marine and island life brought them to the tranquil waters of the Caribbean and to share the grace and beauty of the Caribbean Sea and her islands have to offer, with their guests.

Chef Shawn
Shawn was born and raised in a small town in Texas. She spent her past time with her family either on the water or riding horses. Her land-life love was her horses, where her water-life love was fishing. Her love for both kept her actively busy with her family. In addition to her active marine life, her family owned and operated a hunting lodge where hunters would stay for bird hunts. Shawn and her family provided hand crafted cuisines for the hunters, sometimes upward to 25 quests. It was here where she began to develop a love for cooking and experimenting with different foods.

After graduating from college, her love for the water continued. Shawn was a teacher at the beginning of her career where she filled the summers with boat activities, including skiing, knee boarding and fishing. Countless weekends were spent on the water. While traveling, her love for tranquil waters, beautiful islands, and diverse cultures grew stronger. She dreamt one day to make a lifestyle change and live “near” the water. That time drew nearer as her and Julian started their sailing lessons, igniting a deeper adventure on the water…….SAILING!

Then, Cashmere was purchased. Becoming the full-time crew of their own vessel is a dream come true---sharing this dream with guests by exploring the waters and shores of the Virgin Islands. Shawn’s servant heart is thrilled to share this magnificent adventure on board their beautiful vessel, Cashmere. Her desire is not only to serve you, but to share the awestruck views and magical experiences the islands so graciously offer. Happy Sailing!

Cashmere Guest Reviews

Previous Yacht NameSea Dragon
Ted, Charter Jan 2023

The trip was amazing! James and Julia were incredible hosts! One of the best vacations ever! James is a great captain and Julia is an amazing chef! I can’t wait to do it again!

Sea Dragon - An Unforgettable Experience

We just returned from a trip of a lifetime aboard the Sea Dragon. From the moment we met Captain James and Chef/First Mate Jamison, they created a vacation dreams are made of…They took our preference sheet and matched every request with “top shelf” experiences and cuisine. James and Jamison went out of their way to meet our every need and then some…Even going as far as helping plan and participate in filming drone footage of our daughter’s surprise engagement to her boyfriend on Sandy Spit! The experiences we had and the memories we made were priceless. We can not recommend this crew and catamaran enough as they never missed an opportunity to deliver excellence in every meaning of the word. We arrived as guests and left as friends!!
We want to extend a special thanks to Lauren of Second Wind Travel & Yacht Charters for her professionalism and expertise in planning this type of vacation.

Olson, Charter Nov 2022

This trip was a long time coming! Because of covid we waited nearly 3 years after booking to finally commit to our final dates. The company was gracious enough to allow us to reschedule twice (because of lack of access into the British Virgin Islands) even though their protocol was a max of one reschedule, and I´m sure it was a very inconvenient option for the company, but their focus was more on the enjoyment of the client.

The Captain (James) and the Chef (Julia) were what made this trip aboard Sea Dragon, absolutely incredible! They bent over backwards to give us the absolute best care and service, and went out of their way daily to consider our comfort and enjoyment. It was like having to executive assistants at our beck and call for 7 days straight!

We expected to eat well on the trip, but we had no idea of the level of cooking that we would actually receive. It was as though Julia had come directly from Cordon Bleu with her amazing recipes and out of the box menu! She must have spent hours preparing a majority of the meals, and yet we were completely unaware of her effort because we had the joy of just showing up when it was time to eat. The spreads were incredible, and there was always plenty!
James was a delight! Not only an excellent Captain who knew how to navigate and control his boat, but he considered our whims and wishes at every opportunity and kept the itinerary fresh every day. He gave us options of what we could do next and allowed us to veto or confirm his ideas, and always with an incredibly pleasant attitude and a smile. One of our favorite nights of the whole trip was when we dragged them both into our evening of board games and had an absolutely incredible night of hilarious laughter! Both wonderful friends that we would love to spend more time with in the future.

Thank you to Derek at iYacht Club for making this trip everything that we hoped it would be!

Mathieu, St Martin Charter Dec 2022

The return was difficult for a reason that you will like: our trip was soooo perfect that we wanted to stay longer! Lol. As you know, it was our 6th time doing this type of vacation onboard a sailing catamaran and it was the BEST! Of course I would say that 80% of our trip is made of the chef and the captain…and they were just perfect. So professional, the quality of food, service and everything was overwhelming. Julia, our chef, is sooo talented. The captain James and her read and followed every piece of our preference sheet and conversation with them. I have absolutely nothing to say they can improve!The boat itself was in order, clean and we really liked the 2nd “deck” area where we could have a perfect 360’ view during nav. James proposed a modified itinerary to keep us safe considering the Atlantic depression causing big waves for Thursday and Friday. They were able to fix a small electrical issue they had without us even realizing!

Rosen, Charter Dec 2022

We had the most incredible week with Captain James and Chef Julia aboard the Sea Dragon. They were an amazing team and made us feel extremely welcome. By the end of the week, we were so sad to leave them.

Captain James was extremely professional and made us feel very safe. Everyday he gave us an itinerary with options and he was very accommodating with what we wanted to do.

Chef Julia was very talented and made the most incredible meals that looked as good as they tasted. With two gluten allergies, she was able to accommodate without any issues. She adhered to our preferences and was so creative.

The crew went above and beyond by decorating for NYE and made us such a yummy meal (surf and turf)! We had the best time getting to know James and Julia whether we were playing games together, sailing, or just chatting. We’ve only been home for a day and we are planning our return to the BVI.

It was an extraordinary experience we both shall treasure forever....

This was our first experience on board a catamaran and the hospitality and professionalism throughout our entire trip made us feel utmost at comfort. They make a great team! They always put us in the right spots to view the coral and sea life at its best. The boat had been well stocked and menu well planned. We awoke early each day looking forward to the day’s adventure. It was an extraordinary experience we both shall treasure forever and hope to repeat. In just a week, our crew felt like a part of our family!

Perfect crew to show us Virgin Island Boat Life!

We had an amazing time! With the perfect crew to show us how to live the Virgin Islands boat life! They are each experienced sailors, and one of our highlights was sailing the boat with them. We actually learned a lot. They were always professional, organised, polite, and fun.

Just the right mix of professionalism and fun!

We just got back from a week on the Sea Dragon. We had such a fantastic trip!!! We loved Sea Dragon and our fantastic crew! We couldn’t have been more fortunate. knowledge of boating, sailing, fishing and the islands was second to none! On top of that, the food, drink and hospitality were phenomenal!! Whenever we needed a bite to eat or drink it was right there and always wonderful. The boat always stayed nice and clean as well. Together, they make a great team with just the right mix of professionalism and fun! We will absolutely charter with them again, and hopefully soon!!! I highly recommend them.

The best vacation of our lives!

We just got back from a charter and had the best vacation of our lives. We loved our crew so much. Such nice people and hard workers. They went above and beyond. Very organized and accommodating. We want to only work with them because their graciousness and hospitality made such an impact. They were so patient with my kids, and I really appreciate that. Thank you!

Amazing experience

Our Captain and First Mate/ Chef made the experience even more special. Our family had an amazing experience – and would certainly book another guided Sailing trip again. We felt very lucky that our crew were leading our trip

Jules or JuJu for short made the absolute best meals that I have had - on land and off!

Jules or JuJu made the absolute best meals that I have had - on land and off! She needs to be careful with how good she cooks and takes care of her guest as she might end up with a marriage proposal!

Julia was everything and then some!

Julia was everything and then some! She is awesome!

You guys are doing an amazing job!

JuJu was amazing. A great cook, sweet, personable and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were all happy. You guys are doing an amazing job!

Her food is perfection, not to mention her variety of cooking

Julia is the best! Her food is perfection, not to mention her variety of cooking. She is so friendly and always looking out for how to make her guests time onboard better!

Our experience with James and Julia can be summarised in one word - fantastic

Our experience with James and Julia can be summarised in one word - fantastic.

James organised an amazing route balancing island visits with nights at sea, while incorporating all our requests without fuss. His demeanour was both professional and friendly. We were able to enjoy our ourselves and have fun within a safe framework. For those who wished to learn - new skills were taught well - our group left with experts in knot tying and anchor deployment. I was not one of them.

Julia’s food was just incredible. I have told countless people about the trip and her food especially. In fact just last night I mentioned it to someone, even though our trip was last year. She did an excellent job in consistently providing a variety of high quality meals. I was very impressed with her professionalism in diligently getting up early to ensure fresh ingredients were there for us when we woke up. She took pride in what she served and that made for a five star experience as a guest.

In summary I could not recommend James and Julia more and hope to sail and dine with them again one day.

An unforgettable time

What can I say- absolutely phenomenal trip with James and Julia. James really took the time to get to know our group and was an absolute professional. We felt safe, looked after and could absolutely trust James to show us the most amazing places and hidden gems. Julia’s food was outstanding- we had a couple of people with particular dietary needs and it was never a problem. The best food I’ve ever had on a yacht and the loveliest person you’ll ever meet with the best stories. An unforgettable time.

Well....where do I begin?

Well....where do I begin? Somewhere in the midst of one of the tasty and varied lunch time spreads, where I’d certainly eaten a bit more than necessary. These were always a highlight of the day, thanks Julia! Julia was able to partake in keeping up with socialising on deck, whilst creating incredible culinary delights seemingly in parallel. The food was simply superb and well timed to match each day´s agenda.

Whilst capitalising on the ubiquitous coastal locations, we also ventured on land hiking up mountains with staggering views. All credit for visiting such locations goes to James, our skipper. James was equally knowledgeable of each area we visited, whether that be on or off the water. And so made light work of route planning and taking on requests for types of places to visit. You could really sense his ambition to curate the perfect trip for everyone aboard...and I think it’s fair to say he did that!

A once-in-a-lifetime experience

A once-in-a-lifetime experience. Skipper James was really fun and showed us all the best places. His local knowledge meant we got all the best spots and showed us some amazing views. Having never sailed before (aside from the odd pedalo!) James was really accommodating and made us feel right at home. The food was incredible. Julia served a fresh selection of fine food , which was served the entire trip without exception. We wanted to have a few drinks and party, which the crew were great with! We had great drinks, music and some of the best views. Julias great breakfasts made the hangovers so much more bearable!

The boat itself was incredible and always filled with all the essentials. We anchored up in some great locations and James showed us many hidden hotspots only known to the locals. Couldn´t have asked for a better trip and we will be returning next year.

Overall they are the full package!!

James was not only a very competent skipper, but also very accommodating to our group. His knowledge of the area was great, and he was able to adapt activities to the wishes of the entire crew. Julia’s meals were a welcoming site when returning to the catamaran and the quality was superb. We were constantly surprised by the variation of food that was prepared. Overall they are the full package!!
