Setting Sail: From Dreaming to Living Aboard a Luxury Catamaran

You know you want it...

Mocka Jumbies and Rum...

Ever since I was a young thing- with young ambitions, young ideals, young notions- I dreamed of being a writer. Now, the writing part- that wasn’t so important. That was fun, but a means to an end. I imagined recognition, fame, importance- that my words would flow like a river in someone’s mind, suddenly turning long-stopped wheels and gears to create a metaphorical-hydro-electric-mental-awakening!

Ahhhh… I did mention I was young.

I may have been a bit too young to write in this photo, but it does prove my innate super coolness. Maybe. At least I think so.

Snap-to today, a couple decades later: although I’m sure “famous” couldn’t nearly describe me (goofy? entertaining? honest? hopeful?), I find writing soothing within myself and have started writing more often as a result. Interesting, the change from egocentrism as a know-it-all whippersnapper, to the outward, worldly mindfulness with simultaneous self-understanding that continues to develop within me as an adult. I’ll take the latter any day.

Anyway, I’m babbling. What I really mean to say is: HI! My name is Megan, and my husband, Ernie, and I own and operate a 65-ft classic sailing catamaran, Lolalita. She was built in 1996 in Les Sables D’Olonne, France by the famous Privilege Yachts. Onboard I am a personal chef to our term-charter guests and my husband is a USCG 1600GT All Oceans Captain. We are both NAUI dive instructors as well, and have been working in the industry for 15 (Ernie) and 6 years (myself). We sail and scuba dive around the British and US Virgin Islands, providing luxury, memorable vacations for up to 8 guests at a time.

Oh, Captain! My Captain!

I’m introducing myself to you today because (I hope) I will be your newest can’t-wait-to-read-her-next-post Blogger for the lovely All At Sea (those antecedent desires are still somewhere in me, I’m thinking). This is my first time blogging, and I’m excited to see where this will take us, sharing with you fun, delightful, interesting pieces of our lives as charter yacht owner/operators. Most often it will be me writing, but sometimes (when I promise enough cookies and foot rubs) Captain Ernie will grace you with his insights as well.

Ocean views and doughnuts- you got it.

I’m not exactly aiming for brain sparks nowadays- probably safer that way. A smile or a laugh would suffice. I hope you will enjoy our anecdotal stories from the unique lifestyle in which we’ve found ourselves here in the islands.

“Good Morning!” From Someone Who Used to Loathe Mornings

Can’t wait to get to know you!

Take care,
