The boat of your dreams. The crew isn’t bad either.

Cyrus Dietz

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 Giebink

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!

Crew Reviews

“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.”

“Snorkeling, swimming and great food!
If you enjoy boating and water activities you should consider chartering a custom cruise with Kate and Cyrus @ CruiseNautic.com. They designed an itinerary specific to our group's interests and abilities. We relaxed as we sailed to tropical islands, swam snorkeled and kayaked in crystal clear aquamarine waters and visited unique island destinations.
Their catamaran was a beautiful new vessel with comfortable living spaces skillfully sailed by its owners.
Kate and Cyrus were wonderful hosts catering to our every need. Kate was constantly chopping fresh ingredients to make each meal an event. Cyrus wowed us nightly with his desserts.
We highly recommend chartering with CruiseNautic. It will be a vacation you will never forget!”

Lorraine P.Harrisville, Rhode Island

“Thanks again Kate and Cyrus for an amazing week cruising in the BVI we’ll never forget. Can’t recommend highly enough for families looking for a luxury holiday ‘out of the ordinary’. From jumping off the Willy T to swimming with turtles, every day was an adventure! Hopefully we’ll get to return soon.”

Mike R.England

“Sailing with Kate and Cyrus was an incredibly memorable experience. Every night we enjoyed another bay to snorkel- kayak and enjoy an wonderful sunset, eating wholesome, freshly made delicious dinners. Everything was fabulous and therefore there are no complaints.
You do want to be comfortable on the water, during our day excursions we had fun but at times we bounced around.
Would I do this again - absolutely- would I recommend to friends- I have many times already. We will defiantly catch up with Kate and Cyrus in a different location.”

Rhonda K.Oakville, Ontario
