Crew Profiles:
The crew of PARADIGM SHIFT, A 50 FOOT, St. Francis luxury catamaran, are a delightful and very relaxed husband and wife team with a passion for the sea, swimming, sailing, great food and better wine...they are extremely social and love entertaining aboard their beautiful boat.

CAPTAIN: Steven Carroll. A US Coast Guard licensed Master Mariner, Steven has spent his life on the ocean, from sailing with his grandfather in Boston Harbor at six years of age to running a commercial fishing boat in the Gulf of Maine for a decade to sailing extensively in Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean and New England. He grew up and was educated in Africa, the Middle East and Europe before settling down in Annapolis, Maryland graduating from a fully restored classic 42 ft C&C monohull to a 2011 South African built blue water cruising Catamaran. He has a wide variety of interests and a deep appreciation for and considerable experience with, diverse cultures as a result of his life long travels.

FIRST MATE/CHEF: Bonnie Carroll
Originally a farm girl from Western PA, Bonnie has developed a convert's zeal for ocean sailing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Bonnie and Steven both hold Advanced Open Water PADI dive certifications Her early career included waitressing and eventually managing several fine dining restaurants in Pittsburgh where she worked under several renowned chefs developing her own gourmet style of cooking. She presents a very eclectic menu from down home "comfort food" like fresh baked sourdough bread and chocolate chip cookies to organic free range beef tenderloin, fresh fried snapper to Fetuccini Alfredo..She uses all natural, non-processed ingredients and is as concerned about making healthy food choices as she is about over the top quality and taste. Both she and Steven love sharing their very active lifestyle and will gladly teach beginners how to snorkel, kayak and paddle board.

SECOND MATE & MASCOT: Sailor Dog
Sailor is aboard for both New England charters and charters in the Virgin Islands.
Sailor is a 1 yr old, 10 lb. Bichon Frieze/Toy Poodle mix that is in charge of making sure all the cushions on the boat are equally comfortable.

She is an extremely friendly, completely non-aggressive, people lover that is hypoallergenic to boot.

We can’t wait to get back!!!
We miss the islands already! We try to keep the island vibe going 😊

Bonnie and Steve were awesome!! We can’t imagine a better week. They were more than accommodating!! The boat is perfect and you can tell they take pride in it. Bonnie is an awesome cook and nailed every meal....and drink😉

They are amazing people and we had a ton of fun with them. They were a perfect match for us. Hopefully they had fun with us 🙂

We can’t wait to get back!!!
Fish Family Charter
We spent 8 magical days on the Paradigm Shift and as I was stepping off the boat on our last day I turned to Bonnie and Steve and simply said that sometimes dreams really do come true!! I also want a special shout out to Bonnie for being an amazing chef!! The quality of the food was unexpected from the relatively tight quarters of a boat galley!! In summary, I highly recommend Vine Yachts and Steve and Bonnie Carroll on the Paradigm Shift !! The sign of a fantastic vacation is in stating that my family and I can’t wait to do this again!!!!!

The nicest boat in the VI
I live in the Virgin Islands and I am very picky on boat charters. Steve and Bonnie have the nicest boat in the VI that I have been on. They just arrived to the area with their absolutely beautiful boat and are the new game in town to beat.

We chartered it for a day for a work retreat with my New York office. Our group was 12. It was fantastic. The boat is new and spotless, Bonnie's food was outstanding (think high expectations for big-city foodies), and Steve was a great captain, making sure we went to the best places for our group and pulling out all the toys for us throughout the day (tubing, snorkel gear, SUPs, games, etc.)!

I have seen most of the charters in the VI so this review should save a lot of research time. If you like new and clean, high-quality food, the best layout of a catamaran I have seen, and a very professional and fun host couple, this is your boat. I will be taking my family on an overnight charter next.

Steve and Bonnie Carroll made our charter everything we had hoped for and more. From the moment we met them, after exchanging sincere hugs, their first priority was making sure we were comfortable with them and being on their boat. Bonnie was an incredible cook for us. She was always making something delicious and was extremely kind in doing so. On a few occasions we watched and helped her prepare meals. It was fascinating for us to learn new recipes and share some of ours with her. What a delight! Steve always made us feel as if we were in good, safe hands. He had total control over the boat at all times. We enjoyed watching him sail and navigate. He took the time to show us what he was doing, explain his high tech navigational system, and together we developed the itinerary that best suited us. In both of their respective roles, they were true professionals with personalities you dream of. They were always aware of everything. They had the perfect blend of asking if we need anything, and knowing when we wanted space. They had so many fun water toys and we all played on them together. Having them participate with us on their stand up paddle boards, walks on the beach collecting sea shells, meandering through island towns, and early morning swims, showed us that if you're lucky, you're crew can have a fun side to them. Steve was happy to show us how to drive the dingy, although i might have made him nervous :) Their dog, Tabasco, was adorable and never felt in the way. Every morning he would climb on my lap while I enjoyed Bonnie's delightful coffee. I'm allergic to dogs, but Tabasco, being hypo-allergenic, never gave me a single problem. Definitely the best dog I've ever met! Steve and Bonnie were genuinely interested in hearing about our lives and it allowed us to feel very easy going. This is a subtle but important trait you want on your charter. After all, you're sharing limited space together. Their casual and relaxed nature made us feel as if we made life long friends. The boat was always very clean, neat, and organized. Whenever we were looking for something, down to the littlest thing such as a toothpick, nail clipper, or tape; they knew just where it would be. This trip was an all time travel highlight for us, and we've been all over the world. While we were still on the boat, we were trying to make a plan for when we can get back on in the future.

APRIL 8, 2015 - DAY TRIP
Everything was perfect!! Bonnie and Steve were great!! Couldn't have ask for a more perfect day!!
SEPTEMBER 2014
We returned last night from the most amazing time! Bonnie and Steve were amazing hosts and made us so comfortable. All of my family - especially the birthday boy Steve, just had a wonderful time. The accommodations were great, the food was delicious and the activities were just enough. We still had plenty of time to just relax and get to know each other better. We had our two new members of our family with us- our future son-in-laws!
MARCH 2014
Our charter was fabulous! Paradigm Shift is modern, spacious, comfortable, plus great under sail. The Exumas are spectacular with their deserted beaches, pristine snorkeling, plus oh-so amazing water colors. We found the Exumas to have just enough establishment and entertainment on land to keep things interesting (with visits to some local marinas, bars, and restaurants plus a fun stop to see the swimming pigs), but what makes the location so unique is the feeling of truly being away from it all. In the end, what made our vacation so special was our crew of Steven, Bonnie and their little dog Tabasco. Steven is a great Captain, making you feel comfortable and safe in his care. He has a wealth of knowledge about the Bahamas and picked a perfect itinerary for our charter. Bonnie is a great Chef, producing one yummy gourmet treat after another. She's also a warm, fun, and friendly person and made us feel extremely welcome aboard. Together, they're an interesting and fun couple to spend time with and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with them. Their 3rd crew member, Tabasco, was a real treat to have around and made a perfect and lovable companion for our trip. We look forward to chartering the Paradigm Shift in the Exumas again soon.

We had a marvelous week on Paradigm Shift. It is an absolutely stunning part of the world and even though I spent a lot of time working I was glad that I was on a yacht in the Exuma Cays! Steve and Bonnie were great, excellent hosts and they took such good care of the kids which made a huge difference for Kate and I. The yacht itself is great, lots of space, modern and well set up. I would highly recommend Steve and Bonnie as hosts and Paradigm Shift as a yacht and as you know I am a little hard to please at times!! Rob Joseph
