Emysa Description

Book your vacation with an award-winning yacht! Emysa took home First Place for Best in Show Yachts 51 to 60´ at the 2023 VIPCA Show! The Leopard 58 was designed with an entrance into the larger yacht cruising market in mind and was born from many innovations when she debuted in 2011. She was expertly crafted by the world-renowned Robertson and Caine and stays true to the Leopard Catamarans sleek and innovative style, being the recipient of several accolades. The Leopard 58 was designed from the ground up, taking 40 years of customer feedback into consideration. She was designed to be an open water yacht that places comfort and a ‘wow factor’ at the top of the list, and most importantly, set the stage for high end charter vacations. This distinct catamaran includes an obvious standout, a large flybridge with lounge and seating area that accommodates up to 12. The flybridge provides an impeccable stage from which to take in your surroundings and is the perfect space for cocktails, lounging or meals. She also includes a large aft outdoor seating space that accommodates an additional dining space for 12. This versatile area provides an immense amount of flexible space and is also steps away from the hydraulic dinghy and swim platform. The salon accommodates indoor dining within the comforts of the fully air-conditioned yacht, or in the evening, watch movies on the large flat-screen TV in the lounge area. The galley is well prepared for all culinary needs, with a full wrap around configuration that provides generous counter space, a large double sink, oven, fridge, and abundant cabinet space. The spacious and well-appointed cabins provide ample room for guests, all with separate showers and heads. The Leopard 58 accommodates groups with family get-a-ways in mind or couples who want a more refined space. The interior, just as aesthetically pleasing as the exterior, is complete with high end finishes, wood trim and large windows letting in an abundance of natural light. She provides the perfect space from within which to relax, unwind and intake a Caribbean vacation at sea. The Leopard’s innovative design is further complimented by the superior outfit of EMYSA. 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.

*Book your vacation with an award-winning yacht! We´re thrilled for Bastian & Sarai, who took home the First Place award for Best in Show Yachts 51 - 60´ at the 2023 VIPCA Show!*

Bastian Tromp

Growing up in South Africa, Bastian was always surrounded by nature. He would find creative ways to indulge in it: climbing trees, hiking mountains, surfing or scuba diving - anything that would bring him closer to the elements. After years of going back to the sea, it was only natural for him to continue on this path and become a skipper.

Qualifying for his license on the South African waters, his training in a challenging ocean prepared him for whatever may come. On his first voyage, he crossed the Atlantic Ocean. This was preceded by more voyages, in which he quickly advanced positions and was then working as a Captain.

Chartering yachts for potential buyers in Cape Town, Bastian found a way to bring his two loves together: sailing the ocean, and bringing people closer to nature. Even on land, people turn to him to take them out exploring and camping. Chartering proved to be a beautiful extension to that.

Bastian is truly passionate about the sea, nature and the connection we have to it; and he always seems to know the perfect equation for a divine sunset. For him, providing a good and memorable experience on the sea is a duty just as much as it is a pleasure.

Sarai Ben Ari

Sarai was raised in Italy, Germany and Israel - always on the coast. Being a daughter to a skipper, her family had a close relationship with yachts. They regularly went sailing in the Mediterranean, exploring all of the different coastlines the Med has to offer, and that was where she fell in love with the sea. Discovering this at a young age she took on competitive windsurfing and started scuba diving, along with photography as a way to indulge in the present and the beauty of nature.

Living in the Middle East and Italy gave her an appreciation for the Mediterranean and Italian cuisines. At home, the dining table has always been a place where everyone gathers and time seems to stop. Seeing food as an art that has the power to connect people, she ventured into hospitality during and after high school, working in different catering companies.

At the age of 19 she enrolled in the IDF and served for 4 years as a Commanding Officer. During her service, she found profound meaning in human companionship and the relationships we build with each other. This understanding grew stronger through her travels in Africa, getting to know a variety of cultures and being inspired by her experiences there.

Sarai is passionate about the beauty in the simplicity of life. She believes food has the potential to elevate any experience to new heights. By combining fresh ingredients, and accentuating natural flavors, her cooking is designed to bring those at the table closer together.

Emysa Guest Reviews

May 2024

This trip has succeeded all of our expectations. The main event was the talents and hospitality by you two.

You both are very wise beyond your years, and your life experiences amaze us.

We have traveled all over and have eaten at the best 5-star restaurants, and you have surpassed them all.

​Your souls are so precious, calming, and delightful.

​We never had a want, that wasn´t filled with abundance.

​My wish is to thank you both, live life to its fullest, filled with love, laughter, and adventure.

​I pray we meet again many times over.

​Our best love and thanks to you both.

Sarai & Bastian,

I can´t even put into words how special this week has been to our family. Because of your extraordinary effort, kindness, attention to detail and attentiveness we will never forget our time on EMYSA. We booked this trip to see the islands, connect as a family, experience new destinations, live on and in the water. What we didn´t expect is the actual journey we were taking was a culinary one. Meal after meal after snack after appetizer, Sarai delivered flawlessly. We´ve eaten at Michelin star restaurants and had less meals with less flavor than we enjoyed on EMYSA. The worst two meals we had this week were because we ate at a restaurant and it wasn´t prepared by Sarai. At 26 years old, Sarai is one of the best up and coming chefs in the world perfecting her craft in a small catamaran in the BVI. She is also a great crew member for boating operations. Bastian makes the technical and difficult parts of sailing and navigating and vessel execution look easy. All week Bastian went above and beyond the call of duty while simultaneously keeping one eye on the boat and its guests while also making sure Sarai had his assistance when needed. There wasn´t anything we asked for that Bastian didn´t deliver. He always made sure our kids were having fun, and is the best snorkel guide we´ve ever had.

​We can´t wait to follow your journey and see where it takes you. If this week is any indication, your limits will only be subdued by your desires. You two together are such a special team and for us to be a small part of your journey is an absolute blessing. We can only pray that our paths cross again. You´ve set the highest bar possible for any crew in our future.

With our love and support we bless this boat and all who embark upon it and may you all find harmony with the wind and waves. Your friends forever.

March 2024

Where do we ever start? What an absolute amazing week filled with great weather, amazing food, beautiful scenery and the most awesome crew ever. The catamaran is so beautiful and equipped with everything one would ever need and more. Bastian, you have created a space and a five star itinerary. You have more than met our expectations. We will definitely be back. Please come visit us in Nashville anytime. Until we sail again!

January 2024

We had a wonderful week in the BVI with Bastian, Sarai (and an awesome bonus crewmember Mitchell) onboard the Emysa. The special care they took into making this an incredible trip for us is beyond words, but I will try. They helped us explore the BVI and celebrate anniversaries, birthdays and New Year’s Eve!!! They know the BVI so well and were very flexible in the planning before and during the trip. Bastian (aka Orlando Bloom lookalike) sailed to great spots every day. He really enjoys putting up the sails as we transitioned between the islands. He made it possible for not only rendezvous diving with a coupe local dive shops but also helped us do scuba diving right from the Emysa. He knows great snorkeling reefs and where to go exploring ashore. He can mix a smooth margarita, mojito, or the island special “pain killer”. He also can bake delicious pizzas prepared by Sarai. And “Oh My My!”, Sarai and her kitchen! The cuisine was so delicious. Her Mediterranean flair for preparing dishes is beyond compare. Five-star dining only because there isn’t a six-star rating.

The Emysa is a fabulous boat! We have been on a 50’ catamaran on a previous trip but the Emysa in comparison, offers so much more. There was plenty of room to spread out in the spacious salon, upper deck & forward and rear areas, where we enjoyed drinking our morning coffee, reading, taking in the view of the islands & sunsets or get together for drinks and appetizers. We felt very pampered in the staterooms. We also enjoyed the toys which included tubing behind the dingy, SUP, clear bottom kayak, and sea scooters.

Thank you again for a wonderful trip!

Bastian and Sarai - Thank you so much for a wonderful week! We were treated with grace and respect. There was an ever-present serenity which set such a beautiful tone. We were cared for and attended to - we felt that you truly cared about us and our happiness.

​The boat was everything we hoped for and best for last, the food!! Delicious, thoughtful, varied and so perfectly designed for us, and did we mention, delicious!!! Much love!

This was the most amazing trip we have EVER had!

Where to begin...
This was the most amazing trip we have EVER had! The boat was beyond comfortable and stocked with anything and everything we could have wanted or needed.
Bastian and Sarai were above and beyond in every way. They were new to these islands but did their homework to show us all the precious places to see and experience.
Then there is the food & dining experience on EMYSA.. No words... We dined like royalty. Each meal was well thought out, planned, and delicious! We had lots to celebrate on this trip and they made it so special and memorable.
Bastian and Sarai are a wonderful team and we will remember them and this experience always and forever!

Bastian was the perfect captain providing us with the best locations for snorkeling.

Hands down the best vacation ever! The boat is beautiful and had everything we could have thought of and more. Your attention to detail, thoughtfulness and cooking is out of this world.

The BVIs are a magical place and this will be a week we will always remember.

Thanks for helping us send Jenna off to college in style with an epic beach dinner, bonfire and party!

We will be back!

This vacation exceeded ALL of my expectations. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left – everything was absolutely exceptional! We were greeted, after a long day of travel, with the most beautiful, candle lit dinner on the back of the boat which was the envy of other guests at the marina. The boat is truly luxurious, a giant, light filled salon with sweeping views of the crystal blue water everywhere you look. So much space you will never feel crowded. The dining table on the back was a perfect spot for morning coffee and all of our meals. The bean bags on the front are perfect for sunset with a cocktail. Gorgeous views from the fly bridge which even has a fire pit! Beautiful linens, toiletries, every detail and water toy you could imagine are available. We really enjoyed the water scooters and clear kayak!! Our crew was incredible! Not only are they very interesting and have so much to share about the world, they are incredibly skilled in their craft. Our captain, Bastian, is clearly an expert sailor and boat captain. I had 1000% confidence in his abilities under any circumstances. Our chef, Sarai, made every meal exceptional with the most beautiful eye and palate pleasing dishes. Full of vibrant colors and the freshest ingredients. Almost too stunning to eat! They took us on the perfect itinerary. Every port more exceptional than the last. They even surprised us with dinner reservations at a restaurant which has now become one of my favorites ever! I cannot begin to say enough about this experience! I’m sure we will be back.

January 2023

EMYSA is fantastically equipped, we saw no reason for shore visits. Bastian and Sarai are top notch sailors and the cocktails and meals were over the top. We could not have asked for anything more. Each day was better than the day before with snorkeling, kayaking in the glass kayak, and playing on the scooters. We only used half the available toys. The crew made this a trip of a lifetime.

New Years 2023

Thank you so much for a magical week aboard EMYSA. Our entire vacation was a dream - we cannot imagine a better way to relax. Each location topped the previous, the snorkeling was incredible (even those pesky jellyfish!), and the food was out of this world.
We will long remember the laughs, sun and fun we had together this week.
Gratefully,
