After many years of chartering yachts, Peter and Fiona Wehrley founded Matrix Catamaran Sailboats in 2001. And they decided to build a luxury catamaran of their own. Peter’s structural engineering experience and extensive sailing history served as the basis for their beginnings. This soon included their son, Mark. He had extensive sailing and charter operating experience. The South African-based company still has many of the same team members today who helped get the company started. Together they build outstanding power and sailing catamarans designed for either private ownership or charter.
Matrix has bragging rights on two crewed 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, and rich wood finishes. And making excellent use of space and light. The primary suite on the Silhouette 760 will leave you thinking you’re in a fine hotel. Your guests will also enjoy the same design features in their staterooms. A fully air-conditioned room uses space and light and has a 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 in 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 currently has four Silhouette 760 on the water in the BVI for charter.
Akasha, Unfortunately, was lost during the 2017 hurricanes. (10 guests, five cabins, four crew)—‘Akasha’ means ‘infinite space’ in Sanskrit, and luxurious spaciousness is what you’ll enjoy onboard. 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 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, 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 to take advantage of.
King’s Ransom (10 guests, five cabins, four 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 a relaxing lazy time (or a bit of both!). The beautifully appointed suites are genuinely fit for a king with their rich leather and wood, and each has its ensuite, LCD TV and DVD system, and plush bedding. King’s Ransom is your palace on the water!
Tranquility(12 guests, six cabins, four 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 it is the perfect place to relax in the air conditioning before heading out for another lounge on the aft platform. Moreover, it can be lowered to create a 6” water shelf. 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, five cabins, four crew). Catamaran Zingara is named for a magical gypsy. The maid to the Lady of Parma was known for her culinary skills and exceptional beauty. Indeed the yacht doesn’t just meet but exceeds her namesake. Zingara’s crew will delight your palate and show you all the beauty the BVI offers. 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.
You make the memories., and we make the arrangements.
