Vivo Description

A Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera 60´, Vivo is ready to welcome guests aboard for a luxury sailing vacation that packs fun, adventure, relaxation and great food into every single day. From the water, the boat´s 60 feet of waterline are truly sleek and beautiful and the yacht is admired where ever she goes.

Every accommodation feature is beautifully styled to create a perfect atmosphere for relaxation on board. The huge main salon has 2 seating areas, a large table and a settee with a cockpit table. Guests can relax in the air-conditioning under sail to the next destination, or chat with the chef as she prepares the next meal.

Crew Profile:

Dropping everything in your life and sailing away to a distant exotic paradise is a thought many people have from time to time; Vivo´s Captain Kyle took an idyllic daydream and made it a reality. After purchasing a classic sailboat, Summerwind, in New York he took on the arduous and extensive task of repairs and restorations. Waving good-bye to his home port of Charleston, South Carolina his expedition to explore the Caribbean and the world began; but he decided to compete for the Guinness record for the slowest trip around the world so they are in no rush!

Captain Kyle grew up on boats and the nautical life became his passion. His mother is a hundred ton masters captain as is Kyle´s grandfather. He comes from a long lineage of sea-faring folk and spent the majority of his childhood and teenage years apprenticing aboard various vessels. Sailing the Bahamas in his teenage years Kyle quickly became aware that he wanted to make sailing and traveling his life ambition.

Leaving Charleston in March of 2014, he sailed extensively throughout the Bahamas and spent a good bit of time in the out islands before exploring the Providenciales of the picturesque Turks and Caicos. The next stop on his unbeknownst path was the Dominican Republic; he lived in Luperon for a year and ventured through a majority of the country via motorcycle and Jeep. As charming as the DR was, Summerwind was not ready to grow an eco system on her hull, so Puerto Rico was next! Sailing the south shore brought some fantastic fishing and beautiful sights.

Throughout his travels he has made friends, sampled interesting cuisines, and partaken in cultural celebrations. Realizing he had some substantial repairs to attend to on Summerwind, St Croix, USVI became their place of residence for six months until he could sail to their next island St. John, USVI. It is at this point that Kyle was hired to be the next crew of Vivo, as his knowledge of the islands, adventurous spirits were considered to be the ideal assets for a captain serving charter guests.

Katie comes from the Chicago area in the Midwest with a great passion for food, travel and an active lifestyle. She grew up near the lake and would spend summers on the Illinois River and Lake Michigan. She spent a year studying abroad in France, where she truly developed a love of cooking and French wine. She graduated from the University of Illinois with a BA in French and Francophone studies. After college, she spent her time teaching yoga and fitness classes in Chicago as a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher as well as a Personal Trainer. Katie yearned for more travel in her life though, so she moved to NYC in 2013 to work as a flight attendant for a major global airline. Traveling the world has allowed her to experience many flavors and cultures all across the globe. Katie speaks French, Spanish, Italian and Brazilian Portuguese. She enjoys creating dishes that are both flavorful, unique and healthy, by using fresh, local ingredients whenever possible. Katie is delighted to share her passions with guests to create an unforgettable adventure aboard Vivo.

Vivo Guest Reviews

No Better Crew!

Captain Kyle and Annica

We could not have asked for a better crew on this adventure. Your knowledge, flexibility, adventurous spirits, and sense of humor made for an exceptional week. Thank you for skillfully guiding us and keeping us safe and well fed. We definitely feel like you are part of the family! We wish you safe voyages ahead and easy-going charters (but none as fun as us!) We can´t wait to do this all again next year! We love you guys!

Cannot Thank You Enough!

You run the ´loosest´ ´tight´ ship in the BVI!! We cannot thank you enough for all the stops that you and Annica pulled for us on our trip. Your experience was obvious and your love for the sea made each day special. Every day Annica put ´10 pounds of sugar in a 5 pound bag´ in the galley- wonderful!!! We loved every day, every rule, and everybody on board! The goal of these trips -for us- is coming out better people on the other side and this trip did NOT disappoint. Once again- Thank you!

Shown us the true meaning of Vivo!

You have shown us the true meaning of VIVO this week From waking up near secluded beaches, jumping off exhilarating cliffs, swimming in crystal clear waters, to slinging off dinghy lines, we have loved every filled moment. ´Very nice time, eh?´ We look forward to planning the next adventure with you to officially Tie the KNOT!

Superlatives for Captain Kyle and First Mate Katie

We met Kyle and Katie around 7 pm and boarded our home for the next eight nights, Catamaran Vivo. Vivo has the distinction of having sailed around the world twice. She is a big Boat, 62 feet and 38 tons. Talk about feeling safe! Captain Kyle was meticulous in his safety briefings as well as his daily efforts to ensure that our experiences were exemplary. He is passionate about sharing his love of sailing and always suggested additional activities relative to hiking, snorkeling, or beach combing. Captain Kyle is a Master at mixing Painkillers and we had to keep sampling just to ensure that each batch was as good as the last!
Captain Kyle is professional, dedicated, easy-going, calm, and has a great sense of humor. He was complimented during our Charter at all times by First Mate Katie. Katie has worked as an International Flight Attendant on a major airline and exemplifies excellent interpersonal skills. Katie has a flair for international cooking and fresh spices. For my Birthday Dinner, we ate surrounded by balloons with a meal featuring Lobster Linguini and topped off with a Tres Leche Cake. Strongly recommend Catamaran Vivo Superlatives for Captain Kyle and First Mate Katie. Already planning a return trip!

It´s Going to be Hard to Top this Vacation

You guys are rock-stars! We have loved every moment aboard the Vivo! But most importantly we will forever be grateful for all your efforts in helping pull off our wedding!! It was everything we imagined and you guys made it possible. The girls had such a blast and it´s going to be hard to top this vacation.

Keep doing what you guys are doing! We can´t wait to plan our next adventure.

Your cooking was exceptional. I am going to keep an eye out for a waffle iron for you!

The Crew Have a Passion For Their Job

We had an amazing time and really enjoyed Kyle and Alicia. They were both fabulous. We have been looking forward to this trip for a while, and it exceeded our expectations! Everything was perfect- the food, excursions, and hospitality!

Both Kyle and Alicia have a passion for their job and this was very evident. They made the week very enjoyable for all of us. We appreciate everything and look forward to our next trip in the not too distant future!~The Wykers and Robertsons

Words Can´t Describe the Amazing Vacation

We Have Fallen In-Love With the BVI´s!

Our first sailing adventure was a huge success thanks to your knowledge, demeanor and kindness. We enjoyed all aspects of the trip and will start planning our return shortly. We loved Vivo and have fallen in love with the BVI´s! ~The Bockfords

A Great Time Was Had By All!

What great hosts Alicia and Kyle were nothing was too much trouble for them. A great time was had by all and their knowledge and stories were a great addition! Bob Z

Wished We Could Have Stayed Longer!

I recently chartered with Vivo for 6 days and 5 nights in the BVI. A friend and I stayed on board Vivo and had an amazing time. The service and attention we received from Alicia and Kyle was beyond our expectations. Both of them were very knowledgeable of the area and helped my friend and I (New Yorkers) warm up to life on the sea! Joanna F
