The saloon area features separate dining and lounging seating areas, and an entertainment center with stereo system, television and DVD player. A cocktail bar is situated at the entrance of the saloon area, so drinks can be served directly inside or out in the cockpit area. A fully equipped galley and utility area is located starboard. Crew quarters are located forward starboard, next to the galley.
GOOD VIBRATIONS accommodates eight guests in four queen state rooms, each with individual temperature controls, flat screen TVs and private ensuite head and shower. The Master cabin is located amidship portside.
The huge cockpit provides a spacious guest entertainment area protected by a hardtop flybridge. This unique feature opens up the cockpit area for dining and relaxing and enables direct walk-through access to the wide aft swim platform, great for diving, snorkeling and access to the dinghy, which can also be used for water skiing.
Steps leading up from the cockpit lead to the spacious flybridge, completely outfitted for the majority of sail handling and maneuvering with steering, mainsheet control, and full electronics located here, within easy reach of the helmsmen. With comfortable seating, the flybridge provides excellent visibility at the helm and spectacular panoramic views for all.
With an outstanding crew as your hosts, GOOD VIBRATIONS offers what is truly a first class experience and an exceptional value for a boat of her size and amenities.

He was awarded a BA Honors in Maritime Leisure Management and holds many certifications including; Commercially Endorsed Yachtmaster Offshore, AC & Refrigeration Engineer, Advanced Dinghy, Windsurf, Powerboat, PWC, Keelboat, Multihull & Yacht Instructor. Biff managed a large activity team and hotel at a prestigious sailing resort in Porto Heli, Greece for many years before opening his own sailing school there with Amy. Together they have sailed, delivered boats and provided many holiday experiences throughout Europe and the Mediterranean.
Guest testimonials describe Biff as an excellent captain with repertoire of side splitting jokes!
Charters aboard GOOD VIBRATIONS can be as relaxing or high-energy as guests would like. Biff doesn’t tire easily, it’s a great opportunity to try something new under the guidance of a pro. Learn to water-ski, tie some knots, trim the sails or make a Painkiller! What is most important to Biff ? “I love to teach, I love to race, I love my girl. Always from the heart”, he says.
CHEF AMY EDMONDS
Amy can hardly remember a time when she didn’t love to cook. She says, “I have enthusiastically been a chef for anyone who was hungry since I was little. I started when I was about nine years old, cooking for my family after I got home from school. I’ve really never stopped. I continued cooking throughout college and my overseas travels. I first learned to sail on holiday in Turkey, that’s when I realized that being a yacht chef fulfilled my two greatest passions, cooking and sailing.”
Amy has an extensive repertoire of recipes. Many are inspired by the dishes she learned to prepare during her world travels. She also has culinary certifications from Ashburton Cookery School & Chefs Academy, River Cottage & Orchard Cookery School and Cocoa Black Chocolate & Pastry School. Her personal favourite dish is pie. “But”, she says, “even I can’t bake them like my mum!” Charter guests’ love her West Indian Shrimp with Coconut Rice. This dish always gets rave reviews and recipe requests without fail.
Amy is a warm-heated, caring person. She is dedicated to ensuring that guests aboard GOOD VIBRATIONS have a superb charter experience. She wants everyone to know that despite hurricanes Irma and Maria, the Virgin Islands (British, Spanish & US) are still a fabulous charter destination. Paradise has undergone a transformation. Its beauty is a bit raw, yet even more relaxed and easy going. A chilled bottle of champagne, a mile of white sand, and a spectacular sunset. That’s a beach bar you’ll never forget!
