Welcome to Raiatea.
This spacious Bali 45ft is equipped with a unique lounging, seating and sunbathing space which really enhances the area forward as well as additional padded loungers on the top deck for stargazing and 360 views whilst sailing.
Inside, the yacht is equipped with three guest cabins with electric fans (no air conditioning). The layout on the Port Side includes one queen cabin aft with ensuite shower and electric heads and one queen cabin forward en-suite with shower and manual heads. The two cabins on the Starboard side share a larger shower area and electric heads.
Raiatea is operated as a captain only charter vessel in the Summer 2021 and with permanent captain and hostess in the Winter Season. A chef is available during the summer 2021 for half or full board charters and they will use the forward additional smaller crew berth forward.

Dexter is born and bred in Grenada and has been sailing from 8 years old.
Since 2011 when he started perfecting his seamanship working on a 90 ft schooner, he has chartered hundreds of guests up and down the Caribbean Islands and also around the Mediterranean. Having some 40,000 plus sea miles under his belt and crossed the Atlantic each way 6 times he has now returned to his home and preferred sailing area and looking forward to welcoming you on board Raiatea and sharing his stories.
Dexter is known as a knowledgeable and trustworthy captain with a cheerful and helpful nature. For hobbies, he loves his cricket, playing and challenging you at pool and of course, catching many fish off the back of the yacht for dinner. Soca and reggae music are in his soul and with that easy going Grenadian attitude to life you will have a relaxed and enjoyable time onboard secure in the knowledge you are in the most capable hands.
Linda will join Dexter from November 2021 as hostess onboard. Linda is English and, unlike Dexter has spent most of her life on land. Having travelled extensively she decided the Caribbean and the sea had her heart and she spent many trips herself as a guest on a charter yacht sailing in Grenada and The Grenadines before moving here permanently in 2018. Previously in England, she owned and ran an award winning boutique B&B in Surrey so your breakfast menu is safe with her! A natural hostess, you’ll be made to feel immediately at ease when she’s onboard, which will be most, but not all of the time.
For any guests looking for full board charter, there is the option of a third crew member to join the vessel (sleeping forward so not using the guest cabin space). Pippa is British/Grenadian and has been working as a charter chef in Grenada and the Grenadines for many years. She has also worked alongside Dexter and Linda in 2021 on crewed charters
