Do what you love, and do it with love.
We at Amavi are honored (and elated!) to help you create sunny, happy memories with the ones you love, and in doing so, to play a small part in your journey, as you will in ours. One life to live, let's make it count!
Meet Raya Aguila, our 40’ Fountaine Pajot Fiji performance catamaran!
Fully re-fit in 2016, this light and fast cruiser has all the amenities. Inside you'll find a spacious galley and seating salon, modern heads with push button toilets, and dual changing berths. On deck, our wide and comfortable aft swim platform offers easy access to the warm Caribbean waters, two fresh water showers, and a even full sized grill where we prepare your delicious meals at sea! Guests can escape the heat in our covered but breezy cockpit or catch some rays on the expansive front trampoline - both perfect options to get your lounge on!
On the performance front, we routinely make 8+ knots in the normal trade winds (hint: that's fast), but when the winds are calm or seas get rough, our upgraded dual 75HP Turbo Diesels ensure we stay stay safe, stable, and on schedule in all conditions. We like to think of her as a sailboat with power, not a power boat with sails.
Meet The Crew!
Hi there! We are Robert & Natasha Rhorer, the owner/operators of Amavi Charters. Our love of sailing began 10 years ago on a Hobie Cat in Mexico and ultimately led us to weekends dodging commuter ferries while sailing around the Statue of Liberty in Manhattan - our 'first' island home. Too young to cast off and sail the world, but getting too old to do something truly different, we set an intention to start a sailing charter business in the tropics. On Roatan, we were blessed to find lifelong friends, and a boat + crew that fit our vision.
On this beautiful island we've turned our love of sailing and making new friends over good food and drink into Amavi Charters - truly a dream come true! Amavi means love, and this endeavor is an homage to our brothers, both of whom lived life to the fullest, approaching every new experience with a wide open heart and inspiring us to do to the same.
Come aboard and you'll agree we have the best crew in the Caribbean! Captain Andrew and First Mate Alan both hail from the island, know the reefs, and keep your journey safe and enjoyable. Having worked on our catamaran for 3 years, their daily dedication and enthusiasm is evident in the beauty of the boat and in the abundant smiles of our guests.
Together we are Amavi, and we can't wait to share our love of sailing the bright blue Caribbean waters with you!
Whether you've come aboard for an exhilarating day sail or a festive sunset cruise, we know that delicious food and beverages are an important part of your getaway experience. On Amavi Charters we pride ourselves on sourcing locally grown ingredients to serve up tasty cuisine and cocktails freshly prepared for you at sea. Our menu ebbs and flows to always serve you the best of what's in season. Psst...Remember to notify us of any food allergies or dietary restrictions at the time of booking. In the meantime, check out what's cookin' in the Amavi galley!
