Jet Stream Luxury Crewed Yacht Charter Reviews

Jet Stream

"Jet Stream is a 1999 Leopard 45 catamaran. She is owned and operated by Captain Tim Schaaf and Chef Marsha McCoskrie. Built in South Africa by Robertson and Caine, the Leopard 45 is a former Cruising World Boat-Of-The-Year. Jet Stream features four lavish queen-sized cabins with ensuite heads and showers. Three cabins are available for charter guests, while the fourth is occupied by the crew. Jet Stream is air-conditioned throughout, powered by a 9kw generator. For the guests’ enjoyment, Jet Stream has stereo, CD, DVD and Tape players, and TV, with libraries of titles for each. Tim and Marsha are musically inclined; Jet Stream carries an electric piano and acoustic guitar. Tim is an avid pianist, but will gladly yield the keyboard to others. He also enjoys accompanying guitar-playing guests in duets for the enjoyment (one hopes!) of the rest of those onboard. For children of all ages, Jet Stream sports a full complement of toys. Her tender is a 12 foot RIB, powered by a 25 horse outboard. She also has two kayaks, a “Delta Blaster” a banana and a wake-board. For the more leisurely inclined, she has “noodles” with which to lounge in the warm Caribbean waters, and an oh-so-comfortable 2-person hammock in which to while away vacation time. For the diving enthusiast, rendezvous dive expeditions can be arranged, as can wind-surfing. "

How To Book

Crew Information

  • Name: Tim Schaaf
  • Role: Captain
  • Bio: Tim has skippered charter boats professionally and taught sailing since 1988. Also the child of a diplomat, his youth was spent in a number of different countries; indeed, he learned to sail while traveling in England. For several years, he cruised the Californian and Mexican coasts, and also managed the prestigious Marina Cabo San Lucas, located at the tip of the Baja Peninsula. He has interwoven his sailing career with a parallel career as a golf professional. Formerly Stanford University’s Head Golf Coach, he has also directed an internationally acclaimed golf school and pioneered leading-edge teaching technology. His teaching and coaching career has taken him to Mexico, Japan, Germany and the Dominican Republic, in addition to the United States. He holds a BA from Harvard University. Although the BVI, Jet Stream’s principal area of concentration, are not a hot-bed of golf, Tim and Marsha will be happy to design a cruise to islands that feature golf, for guests that would like to blend sailing and golf vacations. Tim and Marsha originally met in High School at the International School of Bangkok, in Bangkok, Thailand. Although their lives took widely differing paths, many years later, fate brought them back together. Tim and Marsha enjoy sharing their love of the laid-back life of catamaran cruising with their guests. They will be happy to quietly facilitate a private vacation-of-a-lifetime, or they will actively involve guests with as much of the operation of Jet Stream as they might enjoy. In any case, Tim and Marsha are determined to make time spent aboard Jet Stream a high point in the lives of their guests.

  • Name: Marsha McCoskrie
  • Role: Chef & First Mate
  • Bio: Marsha is a trained chef. She specializes in Asian and Middle-Eastern cooking, and but is equally happy to produce Western fare. Her personal favorites tend toward the high-taste, low-fat end of the scale, and she has also studied Raw Foods cuisine. But, whatever the taste of her guests, Marsha can be counted upon to please the palate. Jet Stream also carries a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, so guests will also be well served from her bar. Marsha’s varied menus are the offshoot of a life of travel. The daughter of a diplomat/Air Force officer, she grew up in a number of places, at home and abroad. And, for many years she worked in the field of Health Communication, first for Johns Hopkins University and then independently, working with international clients to design interpersonal and mass media communication programs and videos to entertain, educate and motivate people regarding a host of health and social issues. Her work has taken her to such places as Thailand, Nepal, Bangladesh, Mongolia, Tibet, the Ivory Coast, and Burkina Fasso. She holds a Master’s degree in Communication Management from the Annenberg School of Communications at the University of Southern California
