Capt. Joe Sigdestad

Joe is a US Coast Guard certified captain. Joe loves hosting families and sharing his love of adventure and water activities. Joe is always willing to share his knowledge of sailing if you want to learn the basics while aboard Knot 5280. Joe is CPR and First Aid Certified.

Like any good story, Joe’s interest in sailing started with a few drinks and a good friend. Dave Ciesla and Joe attended a boat show in Denver in 1991, and signed up for sailing lessons. After completing the beginning ASA courses, Dave bought a sailboat and the two of them started spending their nights and weekends racing on the various mountain reservoirs around Colorado.

In 1993 in need of a vacation and some beach time, Joe booked his first trip through SunSail/Moorings to the British Virgin Islands. During that trip Joe fell in love with the beautiful islands and for the next 27 years he sailed as often as possible and amassed a knowledge of the Virgin Islands not available with most local charter captains.

Chef Holly Sigdestad

Holly was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and spent her childhood in Pahrump, Nevada a very small town on the California/Nevada border. Her formative years went by in southern Utah before her parents moved to Denver, Colorado in 1999. Holly has called Denver home ever since; her family has since moved back to Pahrump, and she visits them as often as possible. Holly’s grandmother was a professional chef and her mom has a passion for baking; Holly spend her childhood in the kitchen learning family recipes infused with southwest flavor. Her home was the place where everyone gathered, and Sunday dinners became a large affair filled with friends and family.

Holly is a competent crew member and partner to Joe during charters. To prepare for her role as chef, Holly studied privately and online to take her cooking skills to the next level for charter guests. Holly understands how valuable your time off is and takes her job creating a vacation experience for your family seriously. Holly is CPR and First Aid Certified, she also holds her STCW.

My wife and I just finished a 7 day charter. I didn’t know what to expect since I never did it this before. From the second we boarded, the unbelievable over the top experience began. The crew/hosts are some of the most friendly people you will ever meet. The accommodations were fantastic. They had a full open bar catering to our favorites. Every breakfast, lunch and dinner was so over the top with creativity, variety and craftsmanship, it was too pretty to even eat. They thought of everything. Boat activities were top notch, including paddle boarding, snorkeling and my favorite, kayaking. If you want to relax on a float in the water, they have that too. This boat is big with plenty of room to roam and relax. Did I mention the food? OMG! Worth every penny. More in my opinion. Thank you Joe and Holly for an unforgettable experience.

January 2023

Happy New Year! What a great start! We had the best time thanks to you both. We will cherish the memories we made with good friends on Knot 5280. We can’t wait to be back! Pura Vida!

January 2023

We can’t even begin to describe what an amazing experience Knot 5280 was! Holly and Joe - you are the absolute best in every way possible! Thank you so much for showing your dream with us - we will never forget the absolute paradise we had for a week! We will be back whether you want us or not! :)

January 2022

There are so many wonderful things that we can say about our trip aboard Knot 5280. Let us start by saying that Captain Joe and First Mate Holly were exceptional hosts, their yacht is extremely well equipped and very comfortable, and the food and beverages were fantastic!​
For just a bit more detail, our journey did not begin when we boarded, but many weeks earlier. Joe and Holly exchanged several emails focused on our food choices, itineraries, and more. Of greatest concern for us was our son’s fatal food allergies. While they are always very busy with their charters, they made time to speak with us on the phone more than once to go over what would be needed to keep him safe but well fed. Holly was incredibly gracious and went out of her way to find foods and even new recipes that were safe for him.​
Throughout the journey, meals were abundant, delicious and very attractively plated and served. Every afternoon, Holly would prepare an amazing appetizer, always beautifully arranged. And she would offer cocktails from the well-stocked bar. Breakfast always began with fresh cut fruit, melon and berries, and followed with something hearty. And Joe makes a mean pot of coffee.​
The cabins and heads were comfortable and nicely appointed. Having ensuite bedrooms with bathrooms was amazing and felt luxurious!​
The boat is equipped with lots of toys. Snorkeling was by far our favorite activity – lots of rocks and reefs, fish and other aquatic life, and by far our favorite – the sea turtles were everywhere. There are also two paddleboards, a 2-person kayak, Sunchill (a very large floatation ring that lets you lie in the water), and of course, Tiffany, the huge inflatable pink flamingo. There were usually nice hikes at each anchorage, but given the heat of the day, we chose to stay in the water most days.​
The decks have plenty of comfortable places to sit or lie down, in full sun or in the shade. We almost always anchored or moored near a very nice beach, so a quick trip with the dinghy and the beach chairs and you could spend all day with a book in your hand and sand between your toes. And Joe and Holly were always nearby and eager to bring drinks and food as needed.​
Bottom line – we would not hesitate for a moment to book a trip on this wonderful boat with such a great crew.

June 2022

We cannot describe in words how wonderful this entire trip has been. The food, drinks, hikes – all of it was beyond our expectations! Joe and Holly are the perfect hosts that add an extra special touch to every detail! We hope to be able to sail again soon!

We could not have enjoyed this trip of a lifetime more. It was perfect and has us wishing for more. Thank you for the great food, sunsets, snorkeling, hikes, beautiful sails and friendship. It could not have been better. - Mike & Colleen Murray

May 2022

It has been a privilege to spend a week seeing St. Thomas and St. John aboard the wonderful Knot 5280! Each day was filled with beautiful bays, wonderful food and lovely memories. Joe and Holly, you are gracious hosts and the best crew ever! - Sue & Ralph

May 2022

I did not think that it was possible, but everyday on Knot 5280 kept getting better and better You exceeded expectations. Knot 5280 is paradise in paradise! It wasn't the ship but the crew (and Tiffany!). Joe and Holly you were amazing and we cant wait to sail with you again soon! - Mike Murray

May 2022

An amazing trip with Queen Holly, Captain Joe and Tiffany. The weather was spectacular, the food was well round, abundant and an amazing variety. Our favorite spot was Salt Pond where the people were fun and turtles abundant. All in all we loved it. 4 teens 15-18 and 4 adults. We all came out alive and still friends – thank you Holly and Joe – we loved our time!

May 2022

We had a last minute switch from our planned charter due to an engine issue, and honestly, we could have been luckier! Holly and Joe were so warm and welcoming – we felt at home immediately. Joe did a great job finding calm spots for us to anchor and Holly did a great job making delicious meals and drinks (you have to try her painkillers!). Thank you both for an awesome week!

Holly and Joe were so fun! They took great care of our family on our day charter. Even though I sprung a last-minute dietary restriction; Holly still managed to make an incredible lunch! We can’t wait to come back and spend a few nights on Knot 5280.The Ball Family
