About SOTERION

Operating in the Caribbean

Welcome to catamaran Soterion - a magnificent, fully crewed, Lagoon 570 catamaran available to charter in the British Virgin Islands.
By choosing Soterion for your crewed yacht charter, you are opening up a chapter of memories for life. Your crew, Ben Raley and Rachel Haskovec, are extremely experienced, gracious hosts who will stop at nothing to ensure you have the vacation of a lifetime. Rachel is also a superb chef who will create gourmet meals using the freshest ingredients and skills she has learnt both through formal training and personal experience.
A stunning catamaran which comfortably accommodates eight guests, Soterion is tastefully decorated and styled throughout. There are four double, ensuite staterooms; two of which convert to twin beds, which is ideal for a family sailing vacation. All towels and linens are of the finest quality and will be refreshed during the charter.
With a fully stocked toy cupboard, a charter on Soterion will keep even the most active guest entertained. As well as snorkelling equipment, there are two sea kayaks, water-skiis, a kneeboard, a wakeboard and an inflatable donut. Or if you prefer a slower pace of life, there are floating mattresses and fishing gear.
Soterion features state-of-the art entertainment systems and a comprehensive library of DVDs, CDs, books and games. In addition, WiFi is also available for guests’ use.
The British Virgin Islands are a stunning collection of over 50 bays, cays, and anchorages. The water is warm, exquisitely clear and teeming with marine life. Mother Nature has blessed the topography of the islands creating a very protected cruising area, ideal for your sailing vacation. This, together with the constant tradewinds, provides smooth, scenic sailing that is perfect for both the seasoned sailor and the ‘never-ever’ alike.
A sailing vacation in the BVI on luxury catamaran Soterion will put a smile on your face and a flutter in your heart.

Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for SOTERION
Captain: James "Ish" Alexander

James (Ish) Alexander (Captain)

As a child, Ish anxiously awaited the arrival of summer when he would head to his grandparents’ cottage in Ontario. The waters of Lake Huron became the playground where Ish learned to sail his grandparents’ 16’ Wayfarer. On any given sunny summer day, he could be found out on the lake struggling to untangle himself from a rat’s nest of lines or being caught by a sneaky gust that caused him to capsize. Those first few years with the Wayfarer served as a foundation for a great passion for sailing. After graduating from high school, Ish attended Prescott College in Arizona where he fed an insatiable appetite for the outdoors. College orientation, a 3-week backpacking trip through a canyon in Arizona, opened a whole new world of outdoor pursuits and possibilities. Over the next 4 years, he filled his spare time with surfing, backcountry skiing, white water rafting, rock climbing, stargazing, campfire-ing, and howling at the moon! A desire to sail in salt water persisted, even in the desert. Ish satisfied his salt water cravings with a job living and working aboard sailboats in the British Virgin Islands. Over 6 summers with Sail Caribbean, a summer camp for teens, Ish served as captain, fleet captain, and program director. He was able to also fulfill a lifelong dream of working on a commercial salmon fishing boat in Alaska. Since graduating from

college, he has spent the off seasons splitting time between the BVI, Arizona, Florida, and Alaska. His time in the BVI has given him outstanding knowledge of the islands and the natural treasures to be enjoyed. He has a deep love for these beautiful islands and the surrounding waters. He is excited to be living and working in the BVI, sharing his love for sailing and the islands with each guest that steps aboard Soterion.

Chef & 1st Mate: Julia malone

Julia Malone (Chef and First Mate)

Born and raised in a family that regularly moved homes and always cherished the outdoors, Julia became infatuated with a lifestyle of outdoor adventure at a young age. Whether it was exploring the backcountry via mountain biking, hiking, and camping or the vastness of the sea via sailing and SCUBA diving, she developed an incessant yearning to understand and interact with the wild places of the world. Graduating from the University of Florida (UF) with a BA in Environmental Science and a BS in Psychology, Julia has dedicated much of her time and passion to preserving and protecting these very wild places that she has grown to treasure.

Julia gained certifications as a Scientific Diver, presided over UF’s chapter of the National Surfrider Foundation, and volunteered for the Association of Reef Keepers where she cleaned the beaches and waters of the BVI and worked to conserve marine sea turtles. Julia has spent three summers with Sail Caribbean. She has served as captain, sailing instructor, dive advisor, and marine biology teacher. With each summer spent in the BVI, Julia has grown in her knowledge and appreciation of the sea, marine life and the culture of the islands. Her experience complements her Wilderness First Responder and Rescue Diver certifications in safely sharing her passion and enthusiasm for outdoor recreation with people of all ages and experience levels.

A background working in restaurants and preparing meals for Sail Caribbean has given her an appetite to create fresh and delicious food for charter guests. Julia is looking forward to creating an unforgettable week for guests aboard Soterion!

Testimonials

New Years 2015/2016 guests aboard SOTERION said:

We had a fantastic time. Ben and Rachel were wonderful. Apparently, it was the first time they had a group of mostly children on the boat. They were very accommodating – Rachel went out of her way to prepare kid-friendly meals per our request (she made sure to have fixins for peanut butter & jelly sandwiches on board); the food was abundant and fabulous. It really exceeded our expectations. Ben was very patient with the kids – even let our 12 year old drive the boat. We would definitely like to do it again someday.

It has been 5 weeks since we returned from our BVI charter aboard Soterion but I needed to throw you guys a line. We have to rave about Ben, Rachel and Soterion. You will do your clients a great favor recommending Soterion when she is available. We had eight friends in our charter including two charter "newbies". Ben is a capable and engaging captain and Rachel is a phenomenal chef and first mate. One of our friends requested gluten free foods and Rachel prepared several options that were shared and enjoyed by all. Soterion was a beautiful cat well appointed and comfortable. The trip exceded our expectations despite this being our third (or fourth) charter in the BVI. Looking forward to future charters; stay safe
