Arnaud
CAPTAIN
Arnaud was born in a little village east of France. He spent the holidays of his childhood on the Mediterranean Sea, learning to sail on Hobie cat and Laser. In his early career choice, Arnaud studied child development psychology. He worked in social centers with trouble kids. His love for children takes him to the tourism industry managing the kids club in Club Med.
There, his passion for sailing took shape. To truly follow his dreams, he moved to the Caribbean island of Martinique in 2008. He sailed around the Caribbean as a professional skipper for 11 years. As freelance captain, he worked for several companies on different types and sizes of boats, chartering, delivering boats along the West Indies and across the Atlantic.
Learning to speak English was one of his main goals too and being in the Caribbean working with local businesses he achieved that goal, now he’s fluent.
Arnaud is not only passionate about the ocean, he also loves photography, free diving, hiking and travelling to different countries to experience their cultural backgrounds.

Vernice
CHEF/HOSTESS
Born further down in the south Island of Trinidad and Tobago, she moved to a country known for the friendly spirit of the people, St Vincent and the Grenadines. She grew up loving sea, where she fish with her brother. Upon completing High school, Vernice went to Canada to become a Personal Support worker, but realize that her passion was somewhere else.
Before the Yachting industry, she worked at the Tobago Cays Marine Park, where she managed her own souvenir and gift stall. At the end of the day when her business closes, she worked as a cook alongside her mother who is a chef doing beach Barbeque lobsters. At a young age she learnt the use of Caribbean spices to bring out the best taste in any meal. Enjoying cooking and creating, Vernice learnt to infuse the Caribbean touch in recipes from different nationality.
Besides cooking and eating, she love travelling, reading, fishing and modeling. She believes that the real beauty of life is Good food, Great friends, smiles and being comfortable.

Arnaud and Vernice are are familiar with down island charters and looking forward to sharing the lovely experience of sailing on catamaran Felicia with you

Felicia Guest Reviews

Broker feedback

Hi Vee and Arnaud,
I had a chance to chat with Cindy. She had so many nice things to say about you two. She said that of the three charters they have done yours was the best! She loved all the special touches, letting them get a touch of real local life, Vee’s b-day cake and cooking in general, Arnaud turning the boat around when they changed their mind and wanting to go back to an island. You guys killed it!!

Thank you so much for taking such good care of this family!!

April 2019

Staying on the Felicia yacht was an unbelievably relaxing, beautiful, luxurious experience that I can not recommend highly enough! The crew are warm and hospitable. Captain Arnaud and first mate VeeVee reached out ahead of time to help personalize our trip to our specifications - learning food preferences to ensure an enticing menu and preferred activities & destinations we’d like to prioritize. Arnaud is a great leader making sure all aboard are always safe and well-cared for. VeeVee is an amazing chef (I still dream about some of those meals!) and if we seemed bored after sundown she provided great entertainment with games and karaoke.

The boat is spacious both above and below deck. As one of the girls on the trip put it, she felt like we were Kardashians - it’s that next level of luxury that you see on MTV Cribs. Above deck it has at least five distinct areas where you can layout, suntan, read, etc. Even though I was on a boat I was able on more than one occasion to sneak away to one of these spots and get some alone time. The yacht has a surround sound bluetooth speaker system throughout the boat so you can listen to your favorite music both above and below deck and control it from your phone. It comfortably seats 10 for meals, eating outside in the beautiful fresh air. Inside the cabin there is a media room with a large flat screen TV and dvd collection. There is a large comfortable table (like a giant booth) that probably sits over 6, and a bar area. Plus 4 surprisingly large bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, tons of storage and large beds (I’m pretty sure we had a queen). Also, the yacht comes equipped with just about any water activities you could think of - snorkeling gear, paddle boarding, kayaking, tubing, fishing, and water skis are all included.

Our time in the BVI was beautiful and magical. We saw gorgeous beaches where the sand was so powdery soft it felt like flour, saw the world-famous Baths, snorkeled in the middle of the ocean were we saw sea turtles and schools of fish from every color of the rainbow, swam in caves, and bar hopped at some really fun places (including a docked boat that is a bar/restaurant). But aside from how beautiful and relaxing this vacation was, one of the best perks for me was that I didn’t have to plan a thing. For me, one of the most stressful parts of vacationing is the logistics - on what days we’ll do what activities and how we’ll get from point A to B. Arnaud and VeeVee are like your own personal travel agents and take all of that stress off your hands. You just let them know the types of things you’d like to do/see on your trip and where you’d like to visit and they’ll do the hard part. Though you might get sticker shock at the price keep in mind this includes room and board for up to 8 people, three delectable meals a day plus snacks, unlimited alcohol (beer, wine, liquor - VeeVee makes a mean mudslide), unlimited water sports, transportation between islands, and living in the lap of luxury while you sail on the perfectly aqua water and see & experience some of the most beautiful islands, great snorkeling, and relaxing Island lifestyle. You’ll never want to say bye Felicia.

April 2019 - BVI

The Trip of a lifetime! We had high expectations for a week on Felicia in the BVI’s and honestly, this trip exceeded our every desire. Felicia is a beautiful yacht with her navy hull and classic lines and the most comfortable and gracious accommodations we’ve ever encountered on charter. You have to get used to people admiring and asking “are you on Felicia?” as she is often the “bell of the bay” when anchored up. While she isn’t brand new, you would never notice as she actually feels quite modern because everything works seamlessly and she is outfitted with every amenity. Felicia sails smoothly and quickly so we made great time out and back to Anegada. The crew is outstanding and we quickly grew very fond of Arnaud and VeeVee and wanted to take them back home with us by the end of the trip. Arnaud is an exceptional sailor and catered to our every need. VeeVee’s food was outstanding and she and Arnaud make a great team. They made every day enjoyable and spoiled us with tireless service and thoughtful touches. We hope we will get to sail with them again!

April 2019 - BVI

My wife and I were lucky enough to spend a week sailing on Felicia in April in the BVIs. We have sailed a few other times prior to this trip. This was, without a doubt, the best vacation week we have ever had. The yacht is simply beautiful. We got compliments on her everywhere we went. It is clear that she has been meticulously maintained. The accommodations were great. I think it is worth mentioning that this was the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on in a catamaran.

The crew was amazing. I can´t say enough about how great Arnaud and Vevi were. As I am a sailor with very little experience but eager to learn, Arnaud was very willing to teach his craft and give us sailing tips/lessons that were greatly appreciated. The meals, appetizers, and drinks that Vevi prepared were delicious and beautiful in presentation. It took a while to get used to being pampered all week, but it was a great experience. The crew had a great sense of humor that made the week even better. I can think of no better way to experience the beauty of the islands than aboard the yacht Felicia.

If you are looking to cross something off your bucket list, you HAVE to spend a week on the Felicia! We have been fortunate to sail her twice and both trips were absolutely incredible!

The vessel herself was in immaculate condition. Having our own private quarters was such a bonus. The boat is very spacious and was comfortable with the 10 of us on board. Waking up every morning to find a delicious breakfast waiting for us on the back deck was such a treat. VeeVee, the first mate and chef, spoiled us everyday with unique and tasty creations. Along with breakfast, lunch and dinner were also highlights of the day! The food was simply outstanding. Our Captain Arnaud was very accommodating with our requests to visit the different islands. He was an expert on sailing the Felicia and his attention to our safety at all times was greatly appreciated. We welcomed his assistance with our daily requests to kayak, snorkel, fish and paddle board. He was the perfect Captain in every way.

We love the Felicia, her crew and the wonderful friends we shared this fabulous week with. It was a trip of a lifetime and hoping we can sail her again soon.

I had the pleasure of sailing on Felecia for a week in March 2019. It was a fantastic experience.

The crew (Arnaud and Veevee) were incredibly accommodating since we typically made last minute plans and have our group arrive and depart on staggered dates.

The facilities on the boat were top notch - we all very much enjoyed the onboard bar, common areas and sleeping quarters. The air conditioning was a nice addition.

The food service was excellent. All the meals were tailored to suit our groups tastes and were made from scratch every day.

I hope to make it out to Felecia again soon.

Thanks Arnaud and Veevee!

March 2019

Yacht Felicia was a world class experience - I honestly felt like a celebrity on this trip! The accommodations and service were top notch. The entire experience was like a dream. Food was excellent, flavorful!
Paddle boarding and water skiing were a fun way to past the time and get some exercise. The crew worked hard to accommodate our requests and make the trip very special for us. I can´t wait for my next trip back!

We wanted to share our trip on Felicia. My husband Jared and I spent a week on the Felicia, March 1st-9th in the BVI´s. This was our 2nd time on the Felicia and again, we had the best trip ever. We love the area so much, but being on the Felicia with wonderful friends is a big part of the reason we went back for the 2nd time. The Felicia is a great boat with an awesome crew. Captain Arnaud and VeeVee are wonderful!!! They are people pleasers and they were at our service for any needs or wants we had. The food was great and we loved every meal!! Plus they had many suggestions on where to go and the places to see, which was so very nice. They made the trip so much fun with the extra little things they did, such as ´daily safety meetings´. We also celebrated a birthday while on the Felicia and a memorable one it will be, with birthday decorations, a wonderful dinner and a delicious birthday cake.
Captain Arnaud and VeeVee went the extra mile at all times, they do an amazing job.

When friends ask us about the trip, we rave about the Felicia and The Crew. We tell them it´s the best trip ever and if they ever get the chance for a trip to the BVI´s and want to go via Catamaran, Felicia is the only way too go!!
We will be back!

Thank you,
Lisa & Jared

January 2019

Our time on Felica was exceptional. We went to the BVI’s and it was exceptional in every way. We felt welcomed and appreciated. The accommodations are very comfortable...our own bathroom and the bed was very comfortable.

Our crew, Captain Arnaud and assistant VeeVee made sure we enjoyed every aspect of our trip. From the delicious meals to the afternoon rum punch, VeeVee delighted us with her delicious creations and warm smile.

Captain Arnaud anticipated and accommodated our interests each day with, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, paddle boards and making a place for me to do yoga at sunrise.

As we sailed the BVI, we experienced incredible rainbows, beautiful blue/green waters, and inspiring sunrises/sunsets. We heard the gentle whistling of the wind through the sails, we were told it is Felicia’s song.

This review makes it sound like a dream vacation..and it is. We can’t wait to sail Felicia again soon.
