My wife and I chartered Magewind for a full week of sailing in the Virgin Islands before they relocated back to Sausalito. We have explored the Caribbean and the Virgin Islands for the past 10 years, and without a doubt, this was our best vacation to date. Our week aboard was filled with amazing food, and fabulous cocktails. We felt like royalty while we were aboard, and were amazed that the menu even seemed to be shaped and molded by conversation over cocktails as the week progressed. We visited the best the islands had to offer with our fantastic hosts. Each morning we were treated to cappuccinos that put even the best coffee house to shame. If you are looking for great sailing, and amazing food, cocktails, and company - look no further. We practically begged Steven and Debora to spend one more season in the islands so that we could charter with them again. We are looking forward to visiting Magewind in California.

I went out on the Magewind for a private showing of the America's Cup races with 3 girlfriends. Captain Steve was not only a magical host, but a phenomenal yachtsman!! Navigating through very rough water amongst 1000's of boats with the precision of a surgeon. He has an engaging and very down to earth personality, feeling like you've been welcomed to his extravagant home, with full humility. He will mix up an excellent cuisine on request and give you the Fullest San Francisco Bay event with memories to last a lifetime!!
I can barely wait to book an event this winter on the Magewind and bring my husband for a Romantic Charter.
YOU do NOT want to miss this opportunity. Stay over on this boat and be within steps to downtown Sausalito. Choose THIS as an option to ANY Hotel in Sausalito! The rates are phenomenal! You will thank me for recommending it!!! I Promise!! <3 still smiling :)

I cannot recommend Magewind highly enough. We spent a fantastic day on this boat and Captain Steve and Debra are so welcoming that it is very hard to leave. We found this lovely Catamaran through BoatBound and it is definitely the best day we have spent out on the Bay. The food was incredible not to mention the lovely wine from their own vineyard. We just want to go back. Thank you both so much for your expertise and great fun.

My fiancée and I joined several friends for a day cruise with Magewind. We enjoyed a comfortable and easy paced sail around the bay. The captain and crew were friendly and attentive. There was always a ready supply of delicious food, warm blankets (when required) and good conversation, or wholesome quiet as appropriate. If you are seeking a unique and memorable experience to share with people you care about, this is a great choice.

Thanks to the crew of Magewind, our family had the most amazing day out on this beautiful catamaran - sailing the bay area and seeing the sights including the Golden Gate bridge close up and a stop off at Angel island. Steve and Debora offer tailor made trips from a day's outing to a few days staying on the boat, beautifully catered for in every respect. A
