The boat of your dreams. The crew isn’t bad either.
As a young boy, Cyrus started sailing and deep-sea fishing with his father off the coasts of Cape May, New Jersey. That launched a love of all things outdoors – and he has the merit badges to prove it. It also led to a dream of having his first boat – just a small packraft to captain and explore of any and every great body of water. After saving all his paper route money, he broke his piggy bank open for a camo green packraft from Alpacka Raft. With it, he explored every stretch of white water he could find in the wide-open wilderness areas of the United States.
Kate started sailing at the ripe age of 4 on a 17’ O’Day. She’s been on the wind ever since, with an obsession for anything on the water – especially any way to escape the long Minnesota winters. Her first visit to the Caribbean was with her father, Dr. Scott Giebink, spending months at a hospital in Haiti helping children. The warm culture, vibrant colors and crystal blue waters had her hooked. At the end of each of their many return trips to the Caribbean, she begged to stay for good. No dice, kid.
A Pair Made in Adventure
Once Kate & Cyrus found each other, they spent many years whitewater rafting, canyoneering, 4-wheeling and more. Together, they completed the Bob Marshall Wilderness Open, covering 100 miles of Grizzly-bear-infested Montana forests on foot and packraft. Not only did they survive, they stayed together. In celebration they expanded their gear list to include a Precision 23’ sailboat to co-captain the Great Lakes and coastal waters of Florida. Desiring to explore further they moved into the bigger waters of the Gulf on a 48’ catamaran.
Still with us? Here’s the best part. Together, they bought their new 2019 Lagoon 42. This sailing vessel is stunning and dripping with luxury. It’s also factory-fresh with that amazing “new boat” smell. They’ll pick it up in the fall of 2018 in Les Sables D’Olonne, France and sail it across the Atlantic to the crystal-clear waters of the British Virgin Islands.
This is where you come in. We’d love to have you aboard. Sail away with us! It’s the best possible way to experience the Caribbean. There are so many adventures to be had and the relaxation and is second to none. Contact us and get your time slot before they all fill up. Looking forward to seeing you in The Virgin Islands!

“Their experience and expertise put my mind at so much ease and I had the most amazing time on their boat, being that I've never been on this kind of boat before. When it comes to hospitality and meals they are an A+ plus plus. The food was was amazing and I feel like I have lifelong friends now. I would definitely recommend them to all of my family and friends.”Jennell G.Elk River, MN
