The swim platform provides a big area where guests can sit on camping chairs and soak in the sun. As well as various other areas on the vessel where people can lay and lounge around and get the golden Caribbean sun-kissed bodies that we living here often take for granted.

We use a 35ft Boston whaler for our main tender with 3 x 300HP engines (seats 10 pax) and a small Highfield 10ft rubber tender with 18HP (seats 3 pax) to get guests from the big tender to and from the beach.

The rectangular Jacuzzi on top deck was replaced a couple of years ago.

Everything is provided onboard. From hair dryers for everyone to sunscreen. Bathrobes and slippers in the cabins and much more.
We do not carry hair curlers or straighteners, as this is more a very personalized piece of equipment.

We can not take any 110v equipment. So, please ensure all electronics are rated 110v - 220v and 50Hz - 60 Hz.

The whole vessel is equipped with AC throughout.
The music system works on Bluetooth and can connect via the system to listen to your own choice of music. For outside we have a JBL big speaker, that´s Bluetooth as well that you can connect to.

Head Chef
Head ChefTBA

Captain Jacobus Pieterse spent his childhood growing up grew up along the ocean and in the city in his native South Africa. He originally hails from Empangeni, which is a city in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, approximately 157 kilometers north of Durban, set in a hill countryside, overlooking a flat coastal plain and the major harbour town of Richards Bay which is 16 kilometers away,
A very friendly, easy going and accessible person, everyone just calls him JACO (pronounced Yako). Besides swimming, Jaco excelled at rugby and boxing as a youth. His love of the water moved him on to a yachting career, he now has 30 years of experience on the water, from chartering, diving, and delivering yachts, both power and sail.

Jaco is an easy to talk to person, who has a sense of adventure and relishes exploring new places. He spent a lot of time cruising the Indian Ocean, which he loves for its vast unspoiled areas. He arrived to Saint Maarten about 6 years ago and has been cruising the local waters there ever since. The area has become a home of sorts, and Jaco has designed interesting venues for all types of guests, depending on what they want to do, be it intensive watersports, horse back riding, touring, or just quiet pristine places to relax. He feels the service on board should tailor to the guest’s preferences. From a friendly casual atmosphere to a refined discreet silver service, Jaco will deliver what fits!

His motto is “Be honest and real to yourself and others”. His straightforward enthusiasm and attention to details ensures an excellent charter on board Yacht Eclipse!

CHEF - Alison Williams - profile to follow shortly

Marco is from Welkom, South Africa. He and his 2 brothers spent time on the farm and in the city growing up. As a child Marco pursued soccer and motor cross, and enjoyed a lot of fishing.

In 2018 Marco decided it was time to see more of the world, and he followed his curiosity and love of the ocean to begin sailing. He decided he really liked yachts and watersports and has been working aboard various vessels ever since. His travels introduced him to one of his favorite locations, The Bahamas. There he was able to hone his yacht and water based skills and learn more of the beautiful underwater world.

Besides his love of the ocean, Marco is a musician and DJ, Besides being there to assist in watersports and adventure, he will see that the music and fun is just right for guests aboard. He is a friendly, hardworking, and helpful part of the Eclipse crew!

His motto is the “Life is amazing and is what it should be!”

Marugia is from The Netherlands. An adventurous soul, she spent time in Australia acquiring skills that have been a great aid to her job on board Eclipse. She has been waitress, hostess, barista, and bartender and also worked as a housekeeper and a social counselor.
Some of her favorite activities are water sports, singing and Salsa dancing! But, do not let that sweet demeanor fool you, as this athletic young lady is also a black belt in Tae Kwon Do!
Marugia started working on Eclipse as the second stewardess, but her job performance and dedication now have her in the position of Chief Stewardess. She always looks forward to hosting and serving the guests aboard!


Eclipse normally charters with 6 crew, which includes the tender Captain, and all 6 crew sleep in 3 crew cabins. For charters with smaller groups of 5 or less, there will be 5 crew as the second stewardess will not be required.

SXM Family charter 25-28 May 2023

We had a GREAT time!!! Excellent!!
God willing we will be back soon!
Thank you very much for organizing everything.
The excellent boat and the crew 1000 points
Very professional, attentive, cordial and very helpful without being annoying

5-12 Feb, 2023 in Antigua

From Broker – Sarah
Thanks for giving them a great charter - they all had a wonderful time and loved you and the crew

Clients -
Home safe & sound...
Captain Jaco & his crew were terrific...we all had a fabulous time..rough seas but we made it to calm inlets.

We had a great time and wouldn’t have missed it for the world! It was spotlessly clean and again I can’t stress enough how great the crew were.

19-26 November – Thanksgiving 2022

By the way, my clients are on her right now having an incredible time! From my client:
Brilliant!! The ship and the crew are superb. Just moored up in St Barts right now. Could not be more pleased

30 July – 7th August 2022

Note from Debra- broker:

As you probably know, they didn’t spend much time aboard, as that was the arrangement.

However, Mr. G’s PA advised me they were very happy with all the assistance Captain Jaco and his team gave them with land support, tender transfers, handling water toys, etc.
I think they would consider chartering ECLIPSE again when they return to St. Barths. Hopefully next time, the seas cooperate more to allow them to use the yacht for transfers and some day trips around the islands.

30th March to 6th April, 2022 - SXM

I speak from my whole crew when I say we are going to talk about this trip for a long time and we thank you and your whole team for this amazing experience.
Thought we’d send you our group pic!
Have a great week and don´t be surprised when you see our crazy selves again!

5-12 February, 2022 in SXM

5 Star!!
The yacht was absolutely comfortable and clean. A beautiful boat that met all our expectations. The yacht was well ventilated. All 6 of the crew friendly and accommodating. The food was good and well presented.

The yacht was spacious and beautiful. The crew made the trip. Attentive at all times. Courteous etc. All good. We loved the areas we chartered in. St. Barths is ok, but St. Martin is beautiful!


5-12 February 2022

Thank you so much Jaco for leading this team of such an excellent crew! My client’s expectations were high and all of you more than met them!
I certainly hope to meet you some day in person and of course to work with you again.
Thank you Jaco and Marilyn for all your help before the charter getting the last minute charter going!
Warm Regards,

4-11 December 2021

Note from Broker - Jessica:

I received a quick update from both the client and Captain Jaco. The clients said they were having a good time and Jaco said they were behaving themselves as well!! Thank you!

Broker review:

I have been informed that the charter on Eclipse went VERY well! The family was extremely happy with everything!

25 Jan - 2nd Feb 2021 - St. Barth

I just wanted to send this note of thanks on behalf of Allison and myself to the whole Eclipse Team. Our trip with you and your crew in St. Barth was completely amazing, including wonderful service from a crew who was very engaged and super-fun to be around. I certainly hope we are able to do this again at some point. This was our first trip to St. Barth and we really appreciate all you and the crew did to make it special, and hilariously FUN!

10 day charter in January 2021 in St Barths

Thank you Captain Willem, Chef Yvonne, and the rest of the wonderful crew on M/Y Eclipse! Your hard work and focus on detail, along with your warm and caring spirits helped make our vacation to St Barths and St Martin special and magical! We can’t wait to return! We have had many vacations on boats in the Caribbean, and this was by far the best! The food was fantastic - and perfect according to our several dietary restrictions - varied, tasty, interesting! There was always a helping hand, and you ensured we could do everything that we asked to do! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Mike and Kristen

Incredible experience!

Words cannot express the amazing experience you’ve given us this week. Thank you for opening up your home and lives to us. Every day you went above and beyond to show us incredible places and explore islands that look too beautiful to be real. Your hard work and dedication to your guests is evident from start to finish.
