Dreamcatcher Description

DREAMCATCHER is a 470 Lagoon, which is one of the most popular builds for charter yachts. The model offers wonderful social spaces and spacious accommodations. In the salon there is plenty of room for the entire charter party around the dining table. A custom-built coffee table and newly upholstered couch creates a perfect place for your coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening. Chef Stephanie loves company to chat with while working in the galley. Fellow cooks can pick up a few tips about local fare.

Three guest cabins accommodate up to seven guests: six adults and one child. The port side features two cabins with one forward and one aft. Both are equipped with private en-suite bathroom with shower. The cabins are separated by a small lounge area which ensures quiet and privacy for each room. This area can also be configured to sleep a child by converting the sofa to a small, single bed. The starboard side features a forward cabin with private en-suite. The Captain/Chef´s cabin is starboard aft. Fine linens, towels, and beach towels are provided.

Outside, a huge cockpit area offers seating for eight people. Here at the extra large table is where most of the meals during a charter are served. The aft lounge/cockpit is a great place for drinks and games at the end of the day. A soft breeze will keep everyone comfortable while enjoying a chilled glass of Rose. The aft lounge/cockpit flows easily into the inner salon and galley creating a large indoor/outdoor living space.
BBQ on deck is great for grilling the days we have fresh catch! New trampolines in the bow are popular for sun-seekers and a great front row seat while the yacht sails between the destinations planned for your Caribbean sailing charter.

Dreamcatcher has two wonderful canine mates, Daisy and Roscoe. Guests love to have these playful companions aboard. With advance reservations, the crew welcomes you to bring your friendly Fido on charter with you. Alternatively, they will board Daisy and Roscoe if necessary.

CAPTAIN JACOB ALERIC BONDS

Jake’s affable good nature, easy-going personality and caring demeanor have made him many, lifelong friends. He is an excellent captain and holds a USCG Master Captain 100-ton certification. He is also a true Renaissance man with an astonishing array of skills and talents. As an adult, Jake won many tournaments playing rugby for years with the Highwaymen Rugby. He is a licensed General Contractor and Real Estate Broker in California. Always good with his hands, he is a Master Carpenter/cabinetmaker/furniture maker/boat builder. (He put these skills to great use as a volunteer rebuilding after IRMA in Sint Maarten.) He knows Swedish and deep tissue massage, can play the guitar, ukulele and piano, and build giant, 6-foot sand castles. The fun factor on an interactive charter aboard Dreamcatcher is quite high.

Jake was born in Pittsburgh, Penn, raised with his brother outside of Atlanta, GA. and moved to California at age 15. With typical humor he says that this tri-state upbringing “resulted in a progressive spirit mixed with southern charm.” The Pacific Ocean inspired his first dreams of sailing and living on the sea. He was 16 and his best friend in high school lived on a sailboat in Sausalito, CA. This playful introduction to seamanship quickly became a lifetime passion.

Jake lives by the motto “Be the random acts of kindness.” He cares deeply about the people that come into his life and goes out of his way for them. He wants new friends coming aboard to know; “We live on our boat year-round. We want our guests to feel like it is their home as well while they are with us. We want to welcome them into our lives so they can enjoy what we get to see and do every day.” Welcome to paradise aboard Dreamcatcher!


CHEF STEPHANIE BONDS

Stephanie’s motto is “Live your best life”. For her, that also means making sure that her guests are living their best lives every minute they’re on board DREAMCATCHER. She says, “Most people come on to our boat as a guest, but leave as family. It is important to me to treat each guest like I would a dear friend and to pay attention to their needs. “ Stephanie is a farm girl from Santa Rosa, California. She helped the family raise cows, chickens, sheep and pigs, and tend a huge, one-acre vegetable garden. She had 20 acres of land, trees and a creek to romp in with her brother and sister. There were many family outings to nearby beaches, lakes and rivers. Love was everywhere.

As soon as she could hold a spoon Stephanie was a kitchen helper. She learned to cook true farm-to-table meals from a young age. She says, “I was always in the kitchen alongside my Nona, Mom and Dad, preparing meals, learning how to make fresh pastas and sauces, and canning fruits and vegetables.´ That is exactly what she brings to the menu aboard DREAMCATCHER: fresh, local, high-quality, homemade from scratch. Guests’ favorites include: Spicy curry chicken with sweet coconut rice and braised beef short ribs in rich red wine ragu with pureed potatoes.

Her friends, both old and new, describe her as loyal, sweet, kind, and a great cook. For guests interested in recipes and tips, she’s always happy to share. Stephanie says, “Seeing people enjoy the foods I prepare is the greatest gift. I love communicating to people how much they mean to me through food.” While her food is superb, she is also an excellent first mate, delightful hostess and patient teacher for those who need a bit of instruction with the water toys and gear. Charter DREAMCATCHER and discover more than a tropical paradise, discover new friends.
