YACHT INTRODUCTION

Welcome to catamaran Soterion - a magnificent, fully crewed, Lagoon 570 catamaran available to charter in the British Virgin Islands.

By choosing Soterion for your crewed yacht charter, you are opening up a chapter of memories for life. Your crew, Ben Raley and Rachel Haskovec, are extremely experienced, gracious hosts who will stop at nothing to ensure you have the vacation of a lifetime. Rachel is also a superb chef who will create gourmet meals using the freshest ingredients and skills she has learnt both through formal training and personal experience.
A stunning catamaran which comfortably accommodates eight guests, Soterion is tastefully decorated and styled throughout. There are four double, ensuite staterooms; two of which convert to twin beds, which is ideal for a family sailing vacation. All towels and linens are of the finest quality and will be refreshed during the charter.

With a fully stocked toy cupboard, a charter on Soterion will keep even the most active guest entertained. As well as snorkelling equipment, there are two sea kayaks, water-skiis, a kneeboard, a wakeboard and an inflatable donut. Or if you prefer a slower pace of life, there are floating mattresses and fishing gear.

Soterion features state-of-the art entertainment systems and a comprehensive library of DVDs, CDs, books and games. In addition, WiFi is also available for guests’ use.

The British Virgin Islands are a stunning collection of over 50 bays, cays, and anchorages. The water is warm, exquisitely clear and teeming with marine life. Mother Nature has blessed the topography of the islands creating a very protected cruising area, ideal for your sailing vacation. This, together with the constant tradewinds, provides smooth, scenic sailing that is perfect for both the seasoned sailor and the ‘never-ever’ alike.

A sailing vacation in the BVI on luxury catamaran Soterion will put a smile on your face and a flutter in your heart.

YACHT CREW

Captain: Ben Raley

Ben was born & raised on the Gulf of Maine, and has harboured a love of the sea his entire life. Building his first rowboat with his father at the age of six, Ben knew that the ocean was where he belonged. At eight, he started sailing aboard a Rhodes 19’ and by the age of 18, he made his way from Portsmouth, NH to Hawaii via the Caribbean islands and Panama Canal aboard various sailboats. Eventually settling in Washington State’s Puget Sound, Ben taught sailing in a community sailing program during the summer months and apprenticing under a local shipwright in the winters. Finally aboard his own 32’ sailboat, he was able to fulfill a dream of sailing back to New Hampshire. Adventures along the way to fund his dream included, working as a deckhand aboard ocean going tugboats hauling freight through Southeast Alaska, commercial fishing for giant Bluefin tuna, delivering sailboats along the west coast of Central America, and working as mate aboard a luxury charter yacht based in Petersburg, Alaska where he learned the finer points of running top quality charters. Tropical seas calling him, Ben focused his efforts on the Virgin Islands and has successfully Captained two charter catamarans based in the BVI. Ben is excited to be aboard Soterion, sailing the crystal clear waters and trade winds of the US & British Virgin Islands.

Chef / First mate: Rachel Haskovec

Rachel was born with an adventurous spirit, and grew up hiking, camping, fishing, and eagerly exploring her love for the outdoors near her childhood home in Boulder, CO. With a degree in Business Marketing, she worked in sales for DEWALT power tools in Boston, quickly developing a passion for the ocean, enjoying swimming, SCUBA diving, sea kayaking and catching and cooking the freshest seafood. Her fascination with sailboats also started in New England, where she called on and worked with the manufacturing facilities of Hinckley Yachts in Maine and observed the construction process from start to finish of some of the finest yachts in the world. Rachel has also pursued her passion for food and entertaining, working with the Culinary Institute of Montana where winters included skiing and working in fine dining establishments while the summer months involved rock climbing, rafting, and racing sailboats on the largest natural freshwater lake in the western US. Missing the salty air & vastness of the ‘big blue’, Rachel left the US to live and work aboard a sailboat and deliver her from Florida to Bocas del Toro, Panama. Eventually spending extensive time in Central America, Rachel founded Nicaragua Energetic Flow Yoga, working as a full time traveling instructor at 6 resorts in the southwest corner of Nicaragua. She also managed and cooked at a B&B guesthouse in the jungle outside San Juan del Sur.

YACHT TESTIMONIALS

New Years 2015/2016 guests aboard SOTERION said:

We had a fantastic time. Ben and Rachel were wonderful. Apparently, it was the first time they had a group of mostly children on the boat. They were very accommodating – Rachel went out of her way to prepare kid-friendly meals per our request (she made sure to have fixins for peanut butter & jelly sandwiches on board); the food was abundant and fabulous. It really exceeded our expectations. Ben was very patient with the kids – even let our 12 year old drive the boat. We would definitely like to do it again someday.

We didn't know what to expect during this week long voyage around BVI. Our time here was epic, a week to remember, & the friendliness & passion shown for the work Ben & Rachel do made a mark of our lives. As beautiful as this part of the world is, the touch of service to make this a relaxing trip brought the joy of this trip to another level! Rachel's food & attention to detail in each dish she prepared was noticed & a quality to fully appreciate. Her support to ensure we were fully enjoying the experience exceeded all expectations! Ben's knowledge & patience are defining characteristics of a leader & friend. We truely enjoyed being a part of the "team" this week! Thank you for the extra efforts! Matt & HeatherRachel & Ben were perfect hosts & made our trip so enjoyable! Each meal was delicious. We loved that they introduced us to new adventures in the BVI's & hope to visit again next year!

April 2014

It has been 5 weeks since we returned from our BVI charter aboard Soterion but I needed to throw you guys a line. We have to rave about Ben, Rachel and Soterion. You will do your clients a great favor recommending Soterion when she is available. We had eight friends in our charter including two charter "newbies". Ben is a capable and engaging captain and Rachel is a phenomenal chef and first mate. One of our friends requested gluten free foods and Rachel prepared several options that were shared and enjoyed by all. Soterion was a beautiful cat well appointed and comfortable. The trip exceded our expectations despite this being our third (or fourth) charter in the BVI. Looking forward to future charters; stay safe
