Joe and Holly, thank you so much for making such an amazing place even better with your company, enthusiasm, knowledge, and expertise. We couldn’t have asked for better people to take us around the US Virgin Islands. It was our first trip down here and our first time on a catamaran. Captain Joe made us feel so safe and the boat was amazing – clean, spacious, and so well-cared for. The trip was absolutely amazing! Way more than we ever expected!The Foy Family
What an amazing experience on Knot 5280. Holly and Joe were incredible hosts that found the perfect balance between relaxation and activity for our active family of 4. The happy, energetic personalities were contagious to everyone on the boat. They knew the islands so well and had great suggestions for hiking, snorkeling and exploring. Joe’s knowledge of sailing was beyond what I expected – he was a patient and kind teacher and we all left with a new love for sailing. Thank you so much for a great family vacation!The Glass Family
We had a last minute switch from our planned carter due to an engine issue, and honestly, we could not have been more lucky. Holly and Joe were so warm and welcoming – we felt at home immediately. Joe did a great job finding us calm spots for us to anchor and Holly did a great job making delicious meals and drinks (you have to try her painkillers!!) Thank you both for an awesome week!

I did not think that it was possible, but everyday on Knot 5280 kept getting better and better You exceeded expectations. Knot 5280 is paradise in paradise! It wasn't the ship but the crew (and Tiffany!). Joe and Holly you were amazing and we cant wait to sail with you again soon! - Mike Murray
We could not have enjoyed this trip of a lifetime more. It was perfect and has us wishing for more. Thank you for the great food, sunsets, snorkeling, hikes, beautiful sails and friendship. It could not have been better. - Mike & Colleen Murray
There are so many wonderful things that we can say about our trip aboard Knot 5280. Let us start by saying that Captain Joe and First Mate Holly were exceptional hosts, their yacht is extremely well equipped and very comfortable, and the food and beverages were fantastic!
For just a bit more detail, our journey did not begin when we boarded, but many weeks earlier. Joe and Holly exchanged several emails focused on our food choices, itineraries, and more. Of greatest concern for us was our son’s fatal food allergies. While they are always very busy with their charters, they made time to speak with us on the phone more than once to go over what would be needed to keep him safe but well fed. Holly was incredibly gracious and went out of her way to find foods and even new recipes that were safe for him.
Throughout the journey, meals were abundant, delicious and very attractively plated and served. Every afternoon, Holly would prepare an amazing appetizer, always beautifully arranged. And she would offer cocktails from the well-stocked bar. Breakfast always began with fresh cut fruit, melon and berries, and followed with something hearty. And Joe makes a mean pot of coffee.
The cabins and heads were comfortable and nicely appointed. Having ensuite bedrooms with bathrooms was amazing and felt luxurious!
The boat is equipped with lots of toys. Snorkeling was by far our favorite activity – lots of rocks and reefs, fish and other aquatic life, and by far our favorite – the sea turtles were everywhere. There are also two paddleboards, a 2-person kayak, Sunchill (a very large floatation ring that lets you lie in the water), and of course, Tiffany, the huge inflatable pink flamingo. There were usually nice hikes at each anchorage, but given the heat of the day, we chose to stay in the water most days.
The decks have plenty of comfortable places to sit or lie down, in full sun or in the shade. We almost always anchored or moored near a very nice beach, so a quick trip with the dinghy and the beach chairs and you could spend all day with a book in your hand and sand between your toes. And Joe and Holly were always nearby and eager to bring drinks and food as needed.
Bottom line – we would not hesitate for a moment to book a trip on this wonderful boat with such a great crew.
After a week on Knot 5280, the hardest part was saying good. You made our big Caribbean Thanksgiving dream come true. We were so impressed by your calm, non-stop attention to detail and customer service. You never stopped working hard for us so that our vacation would be tremendous. Holly was an amazing host that planned meals that fit our tastes and planned the days around our wants and gave some great suggestions. As owner/operators I felt like Joe and Holly went above and beyond to make sure everything was absolutely wonderful.The Cornelius Family
Holly and Joe were so fun! They took great care of our family on our day charter. Even though I sprung a last-minute dietary restriction; Holly still managed to make an incredible lunch! We can’t wait to come back and spend a few nights on Knot 5280.The Ball Family
An amazing trip with Queen Holly – Captain Joe and Tiffany. The weather was spectacular, the food was well loved, abundant and an amazing variety. Our favorite spot was Salt Pond where the people were fun and turtles abundant. All in all we loved it. 4 teens 15-18 and 2 adults. We all came out alive and still friends – Thank you Joe and Holly. We loved our time!
