Keenan & Ashley share a love of water and sea life, after traveling to the South Pacific’s Kingdom of Tonga to swim with humpback whales, Keenan & Ashley met sailors-traveling the world and fell in love-with sailing. It has since become a way of life. After returning to the US, they bought a 24ft monohull and worked through ASA training, followed by RYA Skipper Training and eventually USCG Captain’s training. They then purchased Mimbaw and completed a complete refit of the boat during Covid and over the course of more than a year of work! They’re now excited to invite you aboard!!

Guest reviews for catamaran MIMBAW

Keenan and Ashley are an iconic couple who make the entire charter experience so special and customized! Chef Ashley tailored food that left you full but looked as beautiful as it tasted and was as fresh as you’d want wearing a swimsuit all day in warm weather with her variety of tailored meals to our family. Her cocktails are all fresh made with no juice and mixers and definitely put you in the island spirit. Keenan’s knowledge of every creature and plant in the water and his mastered scuba teaching allowed my boyfriend and I to have an exciting custom exploration dive where we felt safe every minute, even when I panicked in the water. He was also able to take my step dad on an advanced dive every day, finding new spots with a vast knowledge of every animal and coral under the sea; as well as how to interact with them. They were so fun we wanted to include them in every on land excursion and late night card session. There is truly something for everyone on the Mimbaw! We snorkeled, had them situate reservations, take us to off the beaten path island bars, shops, fish, jet ski, dive, discover uninhibited beaches, and find rare hikes! The best and most unique trip my family has had yet and we can’t wait to go back!

Another guest review for catamaran MIMBAW
I (34) recently spent a week on the Mimbaw over this past Christmas with my girlfriend and her family. There were 4 of us along with Keenan and Ashley. This was simply the best trip I’ve ever been on ever! One I will do again and highly recommend for anyone thinking about it!

Keenan and Ashley are an amazing duo together! They are truly pros at what they do. They were very accommodating to every detail, had amazing recommendations around the islands, and very thoughtful. They were able to make every day a new adventure and exciting! One of my favorite parts of the trip that I wasn’t expecting was how much I learned from them both. Their knowledge and experience sailing, diving, all the marine biology, culture, cooking & cocktails, prior trips, and future trips they are planning to sail was truly impressive. They are great teachers and I appreciate everything I learned from them! In addition to that, they are just great people and fun spending time with. They truly made this trip special, thank you.

There is also plenty more to say that was so amazing about this experience! It was a great opportunity to get to know everyone on the boat better and share new experiences with those close to you! Go with your family or group of friends for a trip you’ll never stop talking about.

I’m looking forward to getting the next one scheduled! Thanks again! #vibez

Charter guest reviews for catamaran MIMBAW
We cannot say enough about our time on Mimbaw, it was truly one of the
best vacations of our life! Four of us, (two kiddos,11 and 14 and mom
and dad), spent a week sailing the USVIs for a fantastic adventure.
Ashley was the perfect hostess and even though Keenan wasn't able to
Captain this trip, they made arrangements for a fantastic Skipper in
Captain Tim. He was great with the kids, charismatic, thoroughly
knowledgeable about the islands and knew exactly where to go for the
trip we wanted.

Ashley is an accomplished chef and was easily able to accommodate our
request for healthy meals with an emphasis on fresh produce and
seafood. She constantly emerged from the galley with some wonderful
meal or snack or cocktail, and always something new and different.
She was also able to make arrangements for both the kids to ease into
SCUBA diving, starting with snorkeling in crystal clear bays then free
diving with turtles and finally diving around the coral reefs with
rays and nurse sharks! Ashley helped the kids become more and more
comfortable with the water, by the time we were at our last anchorage,
the kids were jumping into the water by themselves and exploring all
the coral and fish.

The boat was very comfortable for our family of 4, plenty of room to
lay out and sunbathe on deck, on the floating dock and chairs or keep
cool under the large bimini/solar panel top. My wife and I enjoyed
laying on the back of the boat watching the sun set each evening with
a cocktail, or sitting on deck with a cup of coffee watching the sun
rise.

The whole family loved the trip so much, we're already planning a
return trip as soon as we can. Thank you Ashley and Tim for the trip
of a lifetime!

MIMBAW charter guest review 2023:
Our group of 6 adults spent a fully relaxed week on the Mimbaw. Keenan and Ashley are delightful, knowledgeable hosts who never stopped making our week memorable and definitely worth repeating! Their sailing prowess, their choice of anchorages, their love of the islands and their amazing culinary skills combined to create a perfect atmosphere aboard. While the snorkeling and paddle boarding were great fun, we could hardly wait to see what Ashley (with Keenan’s help) was designing for our next meal. They take extra care to showcase Caribbean flavors and cater to everyone’s tastes. The experience was fabulous. We will definitely do it again.

A review from MIMBAW charter guests:
We had no expectations when we started this trip… 6 people, 4 of us knowing each other for more than 50 years, and two “youngster’s,” our son and daughter-in-law, It was an amazing week with wonderful, eclectic meals, great conversation, getting to know about life on the water, and sharing life experiences. Keenan and Ashley are the sweetest…they set the bar for quality charter hosts. It may take a couple of years, but we will do the Mimbaw again!!!

Guests in the USVI aboard MIMBAW for mid-April, 2022, wrote -

Our family of four recently had the immense pleasure of spending a week aboard Mimbaw, sailing west from St. Thomas to the Spanish Virgin Islands. From the very first telephone contact with our captain, Keenan, we knew we were in extremely competent hands. From meal preferences/planning to destination determination, he thoughtfully and conscientiously ensured that every moment of the trip would be perfect. We were actually a bit unsure of which islands we wanted to visit, but Keenan was able to get a feel for our collective personalities and charted a course that was absolute perfection. So whether you've fully imagined every facet of an island charter vacation and you need it executed to a tee, or if you'd rather leave every detail up to them, I can assure you that you will most likely have the best week(s) of your life. The Mimbaw crew excell at creating an unforgettable, bespoke experience.

We have actually yet to meet Ashley, who comprises the other half of the esteemed crew, as she was in The States for a planned function, but Keenan was able to procure accredited replacements to fill in the gaps. These were two temporary crew members that were entirely new to the vessel, and it is a credit to the captain that he was able to delegate responsibility and educate them about the particulars of the vessel, while simultaneously maintaining an idyllic atmosphere for us onboard. 

There is simply not adequate time to properly expound upon the exemplary quality of the cuisine and drinks. In addition to tending to my sensitive proclivities (keeping me properly caffeinated and blood-sugar balanced), Keenan was busy catching gorgeous fish to be served up à la minute, whipping up acai bowls for our youngest, inventing paradisiacal cocktails, and ensuring that everyone was nourished and happy. 

In regard to the daily rhythm on the charter, there was never a shortage of exciting things to do, largely due to the extensive collection of paddleboards, dive gear, games, and recreational floatation devices (including an inflatable dock!). My oldest was quite interested in attempting her first SCUBA dive, and having a seasoned dive master on the boat gave us complete peace of mind. After his meticulous and thoughtful briefing and instruction, she felt completely at ease, and ended up having one of the best experiences of her life.  

The onshore activities and excursions were nothing short of amazing, and I particularly fell in love with Isla Culebrita. It is an uninhabited utopia of powdered sugar beaches, interesting flora and fauna, an abandoned lighthouse, and tidepool "baths" straight out of a dreamscape. Keenan's near-encyclopedic knowledge of this tropical enclave, along with planned picnics, hikes, and excursions made for a very special time indeed. 
We very much look forward to booking our next trip, and are already looking at dates for 2023. I'm actually hesitant to post this review because I fear that their books will fill up before we can commit to dates.
