Captain: Michael Vaughan

Colin and Julianna are an inspired, water-loving team, whose passion brought them together, and motivated them to begin chartering,

Colin fell in love with sailing at the age of nine. He spent his childhood on the water learning to sail. For many years he raced throughout New York and Canada before he got into instructing. The next six years he spent coaching kids (8-18) how to sail and to race. In the midst of completing his bachelors degree he realized that following his dreams was what really mattered, so he moved to St. Thomas to begin his next great adventure.

We had a wonderful time on Tabula Rasa! Colin and Julianna were the perfect hosts. The boat was immaculate and larger than we expected, especially the common areas. They did a wonderful job of keeping everything orderly without making us feel like intruders. I can not emphasize enough how delightful and easy they were to be around. Julianna’s food was delicious! In particular, her key lime pie, ceviche with wonton chips, and the lobster dinner Colin had caught for us before our arrival! They make a great team on the boat and in the kitchen. We cannot thank you and them enough for making our vacation so relaxing and special!


We have been on several catamaran charters. This has been far the best. The food was beyond wonderful. Every meal was fantastic, service beyond great. I recommend this charter to everyone !!! The captain and cook were so delightful and helpful. Made the trip great.

Our cruise was in early March 2019 with four couples in their 50’s. Our captain and cook, Colin and Julianna, were a remarkable combination of professional, attentive and personable. We are experienced boaters and divers and thought Colin handled the boat exceptionally well and was a fine dive master. Julianna’s meal preparation was truly outstanding, on par with any high end restaurant. They both went out of their way to address our every request and make us feel at home on their boat.

Eight friends just spent the most amazing week aboard the Tabula Rasa with Captain Colin and Chef Julianna. Captain Colin planned out our itinerary to include the best snorkeling spots, the Baths where you climb through rock tunnels and crevices to the most spectacular views (not to be missed), to Willy T's (a floating bar also not to be missed), to the Soggy Dollar which is a breath-taking waterfront bar! Upon retuning from our day activities, Colin would present us with his drink of the day, my favorite being the PAINKILLER!!! We are so impressed with his skills as a Captain and as a bartender. Chef Julianna could without a doubt open her own 5 star restaurant as she served delicious delicacies out of a small gallery that were mouth-water and tantalizing. Every meal was prepared with fresh ingredients with Julianna's own "Twists"! Some of my favorites....biscuit, sausage and gravy on homemade rosemary and goat cheese biscuits, Eggs benedict, fish tacos, crab cakes and of course all the pasta dishes that has been perfected and reflect her 3rd generation Italian heritage! Both Colin and Julianna spent the entire week catering to us, entertaining us and making this the ultimate dream vacation! I would highly recommend that if you are considering cruising the BVI's or American VI's that this is the couple that will make it "a week you will never forget"! Thank you Colin & Julianna
