Captain: Dirk DeLo
Meet Captain Dirk and First Mate Sandy DeLo and share in their passion for boating, fun and adventure!
After receiving his Ph.D. from Columbia University, Dirk started his career in education, ultimately working his way into the field of technology. His land-based career offered him the opportunity to work in locations around the globe such as Switzerland, Brazil and China. His last post before casting off the dock lines was serving as Chief Technology Officer for a New York City based global education company.
Dirk started sailing solo at 5 years old, crossed the Pacific Ocean from LA to Honolulu at 14 as part of a racing crew, and has been leading yacht charters around the world for over 25 years!
Some of his favorite destinations are French Polynesia and the British Virgin Islands which he first visited in 1981. He is an avid water sports enthusiast and will be happy to lead you on SCUBA dives in the best locations, snorkeling, tubing, wake boarding, knee boarding, kayaking, SUPing, deep sea fishing, and even provide an introduction to kite boarding.
Dirk also has a Mavic Pro drone aboard and will be happy to record breathtaking footage of your dream vacation aboard Le Rêve.
Captain Dirk is a highly experienced US Coast Guard certified 100 Ton Master Captain, PADI Divemaster and an award-winning bartender mixing up craft cocktails for the guests!
Captain/Chef Sandy began sailing in college and has never looked back! She loves entertaining and introducing people to the seafaring lifestyle! Prior to taking to the ocean, she, too led the Corporate life, having worked Internationally in Australia, Italy, London and Thailand. She spent 25 years on Wall Street in technology in executive roles for a Fortune 100 Firm and a few extra years as a Management Consultant in Technology. These experiences have played in to the professionalism she brings to managing her galley and understanding the needs and desires of guests on board.
Sandy has been cooking since the age of 10 and she loves to get creative in the galley and serve up tasty snacks and beautiful meals to the guests. In addition to serving as Chef aboard, Sandy is also a PADI Divemaster and a USCG Certified 100 Ton Master Captain with blue water experience on the high seas. Some of Sandy’s favorite spots are the Virgin Islands (especially Waterlemon Cay!) and the Exuma Islands of the Bahamas.
In 2007, with hired crew aboard, Dirk and Sandy started offering charters in the Virgin Islands aboard the first “Yacht Catatonic,” a Lagoon 440. In 2013, they deepened their commitment to yachting, adding a 38’ day charter motor yacht based in New York to the fleet. 2015 brought a second motor yacht operating day charters to the Cool Cat Charters fleet and the charter operation was running in full swing.
Catatonic 440 enjoyed a reputation as one of the most popular, most fun and busiest charter sailing yachts in the US and British Virgin Islands for ten years. Sadly, Catatonic 440 was lost in Hurricane Irma but gave way to ownership of Catatonic 500, a gorgeous 2011 Lagoon 500. Sandy and Dirk proudly operated Catatonic 500, themselves, in the Virgin Islands in the Winter and Spring seasons and in New England in Summer.
Sandy and Dirk are now owner/operators of the amazing 2017 Lagoon 620 Essence Edition, Le Rêve, where their professional C-suite background, intimate knowledge of sailing and the islands, experience in hospitality, and history in the marine industry, combine to provide the penultimate experience for their charter guests. Please join us in “Sailing the Dream!"

Boat- Loved the layout and the size. The beds, seating area and stereo were great. I look forward to another trip on the Catatonic. ~Richard and Annette and Guest
Blessings and Love - Paula, Valerie, Dixie and Gail
Wow! Where to begin... How about Best In Class for both sailing and service? Boating and sailing in high winds and "sporty" conditions was no problem. Snorkeling and Diving, floating spots, all amazing. Now to Sandy's cooking... Everyone tried something they'd never had before and LOVED it! From breakfast through dinner, including desserts, all fabulous! Could not have had a better birthday cruise! Until we meet again!
- Carrie, David, Steve, Emma, Scott and Tomi
We appreciate your hospitality; the food was wonderful and we loved being so well taken care of.
Our favorites were diving, fishing, sunning, exploring the beautiful island spots and spending time with new friends.
We will be dreaming of our week and look forward to planning our next.
Happy New Year! - Jodi, Chris, Mike, Kim, Layne and Gina
Thanks for making our trip special and for opening your home to us. We have memories that we will take home and cherish. Dianne, Terry and Michaei
Your kindness, patience and generosity have been outstanding. Turning 50 with our dear friends has been an experience I will never forget (and thank you for the birthday cheesecake!!!). We will cherish our memories aboard Catatonic and our two new special friends.
Thank you for everything - a PERFECT trip! - Shawn and Kathie
Dirk and Sandy, thank you for a truly amazing week! Everything was absolutely wonderful! Diving with Dirk was a highlight ,as I never thought I would do something like that. Your patience and calm demeanor made it so easy. Knowing there was a cocktail at the end didn’t hurt either! Sandy, you are an amazing hostess! Seeing my tuna become our sushi lunch is a memory I will cherish! — Jill
We started in Newport first loading our gear and then having lunch ashore. We departed from the fuel dock at the Newport yachting center as perotti’s were not accommodating despite dirk having cleared it with them the night before!
Our itinerary week 1 was block island to cuttyhunk to menemsha to Hadley’s harbor to Nantucket and then MV. Weather was perfect except for a lack of wind! Lots of swimming, paddle boarding, card games. Fun cocktails, meals as requested - lite, healthy and delicious.
We were able to bring my dad’s scooter which allowed us some mobility for meals ashore. Several days my dad requested to stay put instead of eating ashore as he tires out. sandy and Dirk graciously accommodated. They are both welcoming and generous people. My dad tried to reciprocate by splicing a few worn lines! It felt like we had known them for a long time. We shared travel logs, pictures and videos. Dirk was forever offering activities and Sandy would participate in all the evening card games with the girls! Very sensitive to our needs and anticipating desires!
Dirk is a knowledgeable and skillful captain... my dad (also a captain ) always attentive to these matters spent wonderful hours together with him at the helm. Dirk was always up for adventure and exploration whereas other skippers we’ve have always seem to take the easy route where less effort was required! (Philippe now wants a drone!)
Week 1 was very family like, we ate lunch and dinners aboard together.
Week 2 we exchanged our 2 girls for another couple and added another family member, and we enjoyed cocktails and long boating hours together.
Week 2 we went to Provincetown and literally went whale hunting and paddled with the harbor seals! We stopped in wellsfleet to see the French semifinals. Stopped in pocasset For incredible lobster salad and an exciting navigation thru the narrows and shoal! Back to Hadley’s for the night. Then to Nantucket (again! My cousins hadn’t visited yet) for more good food at the Pearl and Dune. Last night in cuttyhunk before Newport! Lunched on board in Breton’s cove next to my dad’s mooring. We offloaded again at the NYC which was perfect!
The trip was everything we were looking for and more!
Thanks for arranging it for us! They are to be highly recommended!
Thank you for a fabulous week. It has been a wonderful rest full of adventure. The wreck of the Rhone was certainly a highlight. We love your yacht. The whole experience was fantastic - the food was exceptional, the diving and boating demonstrated the highest levels of safety and professionalism.
You two are special people to make useful so welcome your home - plus to best professional and notice everything while playing hard with us too. The best hit of the diving was feeding the lion fish to the shark. We will be coming back!
Sometimes you hear you can never recreate a great trip, but you both helped us find an even better experience than our 2016 trip. So glad we could help support the efforts to rebuild the area after Irma. All our best to you both, Cat 500, and Kittytonic! Ahoy!
Thank you for a wonderful first trip to paradise! So many fun things to see and do! It was great having the insider's scoop on the different excursions. Dirk, the dives were amazing and the sailing was masterful! Thank you for showing the ropes on fishing and sailing. Sandy, thank you for fantastic food and for being hostess, chef, and first mate! You are a great pair! Keep sailing!
We appreciate you guys introducing us to so many things: snorkeling, fishing, SNUBA, paddle boarding and touring all of the beautiful islands with the fun beach bars! BVI has not disappointed!
All of these things have helped us grow our relationships as couples, friends and will leave us with memories we can talk about for years to come.
Thanks for an amazing experience in the Virgin Islands! We couldn't even wear you out! Skiing past the Willy T, wakeboarding, fishing, diving, paddle boarding, and "bean bagging." Too much fun with so many toys to play with! Thank you for everything, we are already planning to come back to visit our newest friends, Sandy and Dirk. - Stacy, Lucas, Grace and Luke
We took tons of pictures and had tons of fun. We can't thank you enough for your suggestions and help along the way. It truly was the best way to spend the week and experience all that the BVI's have to offer. From Willie T's, to Soggy Dollar and all the drinks, bars, fun and games in between, WE LOVED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF IT!! Thanks for the best vacation ever!!"

Being on a charter boat as crew is a tough job, but you both completely exceeded our expectations. I can't say enough about that. We had great laughs, but with your calm confidence and how you both professionally executed the job and made it look effortless, you both enabled us to have a spectacular week aboard Catatonic and leave with grins & memories for a lifetime!
Additionally, I really appreciate the recommendations for our post-charter time on St. John. Morgan's Mango was terrific and we just loved the different flavors of the different dishes there. We rented a car, drove the island, and spent a little time on some of the North shore beaches. And yes, a Skinny Legs burger was consumed!!
I can't say enough great things about Captain Robert.. Robert's knowledge of the islands from a historical standpoint as well as knowing where the fun stuff was amazing. He just knew what we would love and gave us a bunch of it. We did so much it's hard to write it all here however some highlights besides the great snorkel spots was taking a great cab ride for dinner from Levington Bay to Hog Heaven which ranked as my favorite spot.
This was topped the next day of course when we rolled into Cane Garden Bay and had a great sunset, happy hour and night listening to exactly the type of music from a one-man band which, ironically, is much like my favorite guy near my beach house which I had
described to Robert. Captain went beyond any expectations we had for our trip, I have already spoken to several of my friends to refer them to the Catatonic for their own family vacations.
The chef's meals and everything she brought to the table was amazing and she fit right in with the family. She was always figuring out what would make each day a great experience with local flavor. Our preference sheet was far exceeded with great meals every day and night.
The tough thing going forward from here will be, "How do we top this vacation?" Truly nothing will compare thanks to the great boat and crew. They made us feel so comfortable and right at home from the moment we stepped on the boat until we stepped back off. It was great to make 2 new friends while vacationing with the family.
Can’t tell you enough how much we enjoyed the trip. From the sailing lessons to all of the wonderful spots you took us, it’s been the trip of a lifetime. We are already trying to figure out when we can return. Catatonic is an awesome sailboat with an even awesomer owners/crew :-).
Good luck to you two sailing on!
Brad and Nyssa
Natalie, Juliette, Christine, and Gene
Thank you for everything,
Matt, Taylor, Katie, and Libby
Thank you so much for an amazing 9 days on your beautiful Catatonic 500! The hospitality that you show us every time we get together makes us feel so like family!
Bananas Foster, Key Lime Pie, Ice Cream of many flavors - so amazing!! Swimming pigs, dolphins off the bow and friendly sting rays- how cool!! Karaoke, friendly card games, and charades - what memories are made of!! Kite boarding, water skiing, and snorkeling a reef - pure island dreams!! GTC poker run - how fun!
Jeff and I will always treasure our times spent with you both!! Cannot wait to spend more time in the islands we all love so much. In the immortal words of KC - "Life is a lime, and from time to time I got to get my fix, yeah. We roll with the flow, friends come and go, usually by the edge of the dock!"
Until our next adventure together!! You guys will always have a place to stay in Texax. Thanks again for a wonderful introduction to the Bahamas!
See you at the next dock,
Jeff and Shawna
Janet, Paul, Andrew, Katie, Ashley, and Alex
