Family Owned and Operated Matrix Catamaran Sailboats
After many years chartering yachts, Peter and Fiona Wehrley founded Matrix Catamaran Sailboats in 2001 when they decided to build a luxury catamaran of their own. Peter’s structural engineering experience together with their own extensive sailing history served as the basis for their beginnings and soon included their son, Mark, who himself had extensive sailing and charter operating experience. The South African based company still has many of the same team members today that helped to get the company started. Together they build outstanding power and sailing catamarans designed for either private ownership or charter.
Matrix Makes an Impression
Matrix currently has bragging rights on four catamaran sailboat charters in the BVI. These beauties are so outstanding that one of them, Zingara, a Silhouette 760, grabbed the attention of ABC’s “The Bachelor” and was featured for one of the date locations!
The Silhouette 760 has also grabbed the attention of the charter industry and guests alike. Designed with gorgeous marble, rich wood finishes and making excellent use of space and light, the master suite on the Silhouette 760 will leave you thinking you’re in a fine hotel. Your guests will enjoy much of the same design features in their own suites, too, as each fully air-conditioned room makes the same use of space and light and has it’s own private ensuite, TV and DVD player.
There are plenty of spaces to gather together as a group, too. You and your guests can take in an unobstructed view of the blue Caribbean waters from the shaded flybridge or enjoy a meal on the dining cockpit below. Both have stocked bars to keep you cool and refreshed after enjoying the activities and water sports available to you.
Matrix Catamaran Sailboat Charters
Matrix currently has four Silhouette 760 on the water in the BVI for charter.
Akasha (10 guests, 5 cabins, 4 crew)—‘Akasha’ means ‘infinite space’ in Sanskrit, and luxurious spaciousness is what you’ll enjoy on board. Winner of “Best in Show” at the BVI Charter Yacht Show, Akasha and her crew will meet and exceed your Caribbean dreams. The chef will custom design your menu to your preferences so you can enjoy 5-star dining in either the enormous cockpit to take in the balmy breeze or the elegant indoor dining area of the salon. If action is what you seek, Akasha and her experienced crew have you covered there as well, offering almost every water sport you can imagine. When relaxing onboard, there are gaming systems, satellite tv, indoor and outdoor sound systems and much more of which to take advantage.
King’s Ransom (10 guests, 5 cabins, 4 crew)—Soak in the Caribbean sun during the day and then soak in the warm Jacuzzi on the flybridge on King’s Ransom. The four-person crew on King’s Ransom are ready to escort you and your guests through the BVI in style, whether you choose to enjoy active water sports or relaxing lazy time (or a bit of both!). The beautifully appointed suites are truly fit for a king with their rich leather and wood and each has it’s own ensuite, LCD TV and DVD system, and plush bedding. King’s Ransom is your palace on the water!
Tranquility(12 guests, 6 cabins, 4 crew)—The name says it all. Enjoy Tranquility on your luxury yacht charter and enjoy the vacation of a lifetime. Chartering for the first time in 2014, Tranquility has all the latest innovations and accommodations you’d expect on a luxury catamaran charter. Her modern interior is fresh and inviting and is the perfect place to relax in the air conditioning before heading out for another lounge on the aft platform which can be lowered to create a shelf of 6” of water—the perfect mix of warm Caribbean sun and refreshing blue waters.
Large enough to accommodate 12 guests, you’ll have plenty of room to share Tranquility with your family and friends.
Zingara (10 guests, 5 cabins, 4 crew) – Zingara, named for a magical gypsy, maid to the Lady of Parma known for her culinary skills and exceptional beauty, doesn’t just meet but exceeds her namesake. Zingara’s crew will delight your palate and show you all the beauty the BVI has to offer. Your master suite is stunning with a king-size bed, lounge area, spa tub and a walk in closet. Your guests will feel just as lucky in their suites as each has a private ensuite, LCD TV, DVD and Sony Playstation.
Zingara also has the latest water including a paddleboard, Hobie Cat, waterskis and much more.
