ABUNDANCE Yacht Description

This new yacht, a Helia model, born under the sign of the sun, is a clever blend of elegance and space.
Its deck and large aft cockpit enable guests to enjoy cruising or sailing where everybody can find their place.
The 2 queen cabins are ample and well lit, each with their own separate toilet and shower.

Presented by DMA Yachting, the breathtaking charter yacht ABUNDANCE is a 44 ft sailing catamaran. The highlights of ABUNDANCE are her elegant profile and inviting socializing areas. ABUNDANCE spends the season in Antarctica. She was constructed by the renowned boatbuilder Fontaine Pajot in 2019. The well-planned yacht layout features 3 large cabins and easily accommodates a group of 4 guests.

ABUNDANCE is offered primarily as a sailing catamaran. The yacht layout radiates from the main saloon, which connects to the aft deck. The aft deck is where heart of the yacht is and that's where the guests spend most of their time. The tasteful cabins are connected by stairs to the main saloon - roomy, comfortable and pleasant. The cabins offer unbeatable views in the morning and are located just below deck. Multiple portholes supply a sunny feeling, with the option for darkness and privacy.

The sailboat features 2x Volvo D2-50 Cummins/Onan 11kw engines and a generator.

Accommodation

4 guests is ideal, but Abundance has one single forepeak cabin, which can accommodate one additional passenger.
2 port side Queen cabins fully air-conditioned each with its own en-suite electric head.
1 forward single cabin with access from deck as well as port forward cabin and must share another guest cabin's head. Single birth cabin is not air-conditioned.

June 2022 USVI PERFECT charter
Until we see you again…..

Every time you plan a trip, you want it to be perfect and some end up being better than others, but never perfect. We can sincerely say that our week aboard the Abundance was truly PERFECT and the best trip we have ever been on. EVER!

Captain Blaine knew every nook and cranny of the islands. The boat was impeccable and nothing compares to the moment you kill the engines and realize the serenity of wind taking you to your next stop. Coves that were crystal blue and the views that got better and better around every point you sailed. The diving & snorkeling was unbelievable - both by day and by night.

Our chef created meals that would rival any restaurant - truly incomparable. Back to back to back… Meals that were made from the heart, not selected off a menu. The hardest question Captain Blain asked the entire week was which meal we liked the most.

This trip was to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and it truly was the PERFECT way to mark the milestone. However, I can say without a shadow of a doubt, that we will not wait another 20 years to return to the Abundance.

May 2022 USVI Charter
We absolutely loved our time on Abundance! What a great experience!
Captain Blaine and Lela were a pleasure to spend our time with. The sailing, anchorages, snorkeling, diving, and hiking were amazing. Capt. Blaine did an excellent job giving us the adventures that we were hoping for. The meals were absolutely delicious- every one of them.
This is the way to vacation!

February 2022 USVI
We thoroughly enjoyed every place we visited. Blaine & Siobhan knew the best spots to visit that allowed us to snorkel, hike and enjoy our time on board. The Captain and I had a lot in common, education, hobbies and interests. We had complete confidence in Blaine and felt very comfortable at all times.

Siobhan is an excellent chef. We ate really well and enjoyed the gourmet healthy meals that Siobhan prepared for us each day. In fact Donna received copies of many of the recipes so that we could replicate the meals at home.

Prior to leaving we were disappointed that we would not be able to sail to the BVI as we had originally intended. Blaine and Siobhan did such a fantastic job of organizing our week visiting the USVI’s sights on St. Croix & St. John that we honestly didn’t miss the BVI. Our time sailing the USVI was really enjoyable and all we could have hoped for. Not that we wouldn’t have liked to visit the BVI but in lieu of that we couldn’t have imagined a better trip than what we experienced.

Christmas Charter 2021
The trip of a life time. The Abundance “crew” took great care of us and every detail. Thank you.

If you’re reading reviews in an effort to help you decide, just pull the trigger. I am positive you will have an amazing experience on the Abundance. The yacht and the crew are simply amazing! Fair warning though, after your trip, everything you eat will taste rather bland and subsequent vacation ideas will seem much less appealing.

December 2021 USVI Charter
We had an incredible week! Our meals were delicious, the yacht was relaxing, and we went on amazing adventures. Being able to scuba dive from the boat with crew who are experienced divers and took the time to help us get comfortable in the water was key to the success of our trip. We highly recommend Abundance!

November 2021 Anniversary
Our 20 year anniversary trip on Abundance Charter was amazing. From start to finish we loved the whole experience from the crew, to the food, and of course all the beautiful backdrop of the USVI! Thank you for a very special trip!

November 2021 Honeymoon
My husband and I sailed on Abundance for our honeymoon in November and had such an incredible, memorable week! We greatly enjoyed sailing along the US Virgin Islands with Captain Blaine and Siobhan on their charter yacht. They were fabulous hosts and personalized our experience to include our favorite activities, food and drinks. It was such a treat to enjoy Siobhan’s cooking and Blaine’s specialty cocktails (the Painkiller was our favorite!). Captain Blaine and Siobhan compliment each other so well and make a great team onboard Abundance.

Every anchorage area and stop was both enjoyable and stunning. We saw gorgeous rainbows, hiked up to postcard-worthy views, snorkeled with sea turtles and other marine life, and paddle boarded to white sand beaches. One of our favorite memories was the floating taco bar in Coral Bay. We also stopped at Cruz Bay and enjoyed a romantic evening as newlyweds on shore. The live music, local cuisine, yummy rum drinks, and sunset views made for the perfect romantic date night. My husband enjoyed learning some sailing basics along the way, and we both loved sitting on the deck on either the trampoline or bean bags to take in all the sights. The sunsets were magical, and our entire week was romantic and perfect. We hope to sail with Abundance again soon!

Most amazing week at sea!
Our week aboard Abundance with Blaine and Siobhan was absolutely amazing. From minute 1 they did everything possible to pamper us. They learnt all about our likes and preferences in advance, and then absolutely customized everything (from itinerary, to activities to food and drinks!) to make it just perfect. Siobhan is an excellent chef and made each meal delicious and different, while Blaine made us 'surprise drinks' that were amazing every time. They always had a suggestion for a fun activity (like incredible snorkeling, a pretty hike, tubing or visiting a secluded beach), including teaching us how to play many card games in the evenings!

The boat is new and shiny, and super comfortable (roomy bedrooms with amazing mattresses and pillows, super comfy poufs in the bow to lounge while sailing,..) and we had fun with all the toys and equipment, like the paddleboards or the tube.

We cannot recommend it enough, and hope to be back on Abundance for our next sailing adventure!

Super fun and relaxing
Super fun and relaxing vacation with Abundance Yacht Charters sailing around the US Virgin Islands! Stayed in a different bay each night with days filled with sun, beaches, hikes, snorkeling, paddle boarding, delicious on board food, and fantastic views!
Thanks Siobhan and Blaine!

5+ stars - absolutely best in class
Our trip to the US Virgin Islands aboard Abundance was five +stars. Blaine and Siobhan are absolutely best in class.

The accommodations were amazing. But, their attention to detail truly made our trip spectacular. This is our third charter in the Virgin Islands and by far our best. The British virgin Islands were closed to us. But, Blaine put together a great itinerary full of sailing, snorkeling, diving, hiking and fun restaurants/bars.

Speaking of food....the BEST food and drink we had during our 7 day cruise was prepared & served onboard. We were blown away with Siobhan’s mastery in the kitchen. Truly, amazing food!
Blaine is a maestro behind the bar-specialties :Painkiller & Bushwhacker. (But he can mix anything)

Blaine and Siobhan were the ultimate hosts and a great team. Both anticipated anything we might need or want. When we thought about drinks, drinks appeared. If we thought about getting hungry, food appeared.

By the way, I knew it was going to be a great trip when you took time to give us a pre-trip call to find out exactly what we wanted to do and what kind of things we like to eat and drink. In our previous trips that had not been done. So, good work! It was a pleasure to get to know both of you. You really are a special couple.
Thanks for a great trip.

Great memories all around
Thank you Blaine and Siobhan for making our USVI trip special. 🙂 Great coves, great snorkeling, and great friendships. Your yacht was wonderful and your knowledge of the USVIs was invaluable. Ooh and the Lime Out Bar and Grill...just icing on the cake. Great memories all around. Thanks so much!
A week we will not soon forget.
Our time with the crew of Abundance was a week we will not soon forget. Siobhan and Blaine welcomed us aboard their beautifully kept yacht with frozen mudslides to discuss the weeks itinerary. They were both knowledgeable of the area and competent sailors. We were able to sit back and relax from bean bag chairs on the bow while they delivered us from anchorage to anchorage. Blaine knew all the great spots for our daily snorkels and one morning we were lucky enough to dive for our lobster dinner. From paddle-boards to swim up taco bars, the options for fun were endless. Every morning started with a delicious breakfast, our two favorites were Siobhan's salmon Benedict with boat made English muffins and fresh hollandaise and Blaine's pancakes that were so light and fluffy we had to have them again on the last morning. Most evenings came to a close with a little friendly competition on the aft deck in a game of dominos. We wish them the best with the rest of their charter season and would love nothing more than the opportunity to return.
