Chef and Mate
Captain: Steven Caroll
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. Her other duties include chasing seagulls on the beach, drinking only fresh water with ice and keeping the Captain and First mate's bunk warm on chilly evenings. She is an extremely friendly, completely non-aggressive, people lover that is hypoallergenic to boot.
Bonnie, Steve and the Paradigm Shift exceeded all expectations. This is not our first rodeo. We have enjoyed sailing in the BVI's many times but this was, by far, our best overall experience, even though Covid limited our cruising area. Bonnie and Steve knew where to take us to maximize our experience. Snorkeling off Culebra was a highlight. We will definitely be back on the Paradigm Shift!
Dear Bonnie, Steve and Sailor,
We knew this would be a trip of a lifetime but thank you for making it better than we could have ever imagined! You guys ROCK!
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!!!
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.
