This brand new 2022 luxurious sailing catamaran, PERMABEAR, is definitely a fine example of what Bali can design.

As you step on board in to a beautifully appointed cockpit, complete with teak floors and dining table for eight and a comfortable lounging bench, you immediately realize what a unique charter experience you are about to have.

As you make your way up to the flybridge you’ll be blown away by the amazing turquoise water with 360° views and enjoy the up-close view of the sails. It’s also a great place to read your favorite book or a favorite spot for appetizers and cocktails at sundown.

The main salon is comfortable and luxurious with open spaces and natural light fed by all the windows surrounding you. All four guest cabins are spacious with large windows and offer plenty of natural light. For your comfort, every cabin offers queen sized beds and private baths with dedicated shower stalls as well as flatscreen TVs and a stereo system for both central and individual cabin control.

Capt. Ed Irwin

I guess you can say I have spent most of my life trying to get lost in the outdoors.  Born in Newfoundland, Canada I spent as much time as I could outside, fishing the streams for trout and getting lost in woods. As a small boy I would drive my mother crazy by wandering off only to come home with pockets full of the fish I caught, or birds and small animals I captured that I wanted to keep as pets.

I have enjoyed back country camping, hiking, canoeing my entire life.  The Boundary Waters lakes and portages one of are my favorite places to get lost in.  To ride my motorcycle, lightly packed for finding remote fly-fishing streams, not really having a destination in mind, is my perfect get away.

I grew up on the small lakes of Northern Illinois, driving to school in my small motorboat. The first time I was on a sailboat I instantly fell in love with the simple act of the wind taking my boat anywhere.

After sailing Lake Michigan for many years, Erin and I created a plan to take off on our own boat and sail to as many places of the world that we could.  We found an abandoned Cape Dory 36 and rebuilt it and outfitted it for long distance travel.  Years of hard work paid off in a beautifully restored and perfectly outfitted classic sailboat that allowed us to live our sailing dreams.

We have sailed and lived aboard our boat for the past 4 years.  We have sailed the Great Lakes, the Chesapeake, off shore from Norfolk around Bermuda to the Caribbean.  We then sailed back north to Maine, sailing “down east” for the summer and headed back down the eastern seaboard to head off shore again to the Caribbean.

We have spent the past 2 seasons in the Virgin Islands, US and BVI exploring and finding amazing coves, anchorages, becoming PADI scuba certified, and learning why everyone says that once you make it to the Caribbean- you don’t want to leave.  I am looking forward to showing guests why the Caribbean is a sailing paradise.

Chef Erin Irwin

My childhood playground was Tower Marina in Saugatuck, MI.  My family bought a River Queen houseboat when I was 10 and we spend every weekend and all of the summers until I was 18 playing on Lake Michigan’s waters.  I loved everything about being on the water and was always the first and last one to jump into the water, no matter what temperature!

I am always up for an adventure and tend to do life in a bigger than life way.  I am nearly 100% Irish and definitely have the gift of gab and will tell stories all day.  I am a care taker, the oldest daughter of a big family, mother of 5 kids, a nurse/midwife for 25 years, and as professor for a good part of my life I am a natural teacher.

When cooking for my family I wanted them to have a healthy diet.  Most of our meals were whole foods from our garden, cooked from scratch.  My cooking style has an emphasis on a healthy balance of the Mediterranean foods, Asian cuisines, and comfort foods that are adapted to healthy, but rich versions. I have spent a good portion of my life in Chicago, and have become an obsessive foodie, constantly searching for the perfect meal at the perfect restaurant which is an endless quest that has taught me so much about the experience of eating well.

As the oldest daughter of a big family , and the mother of a large family, I was always the center of planning family gatherings and parties.  I love finding unique themes and creating relaxed, special-moments and memories together.  Ed and I have found the outdoors, especially sailing, to always be the perfect setting for finding that moment to connect to each other, but to something bigger.  It has always been the best stage for us to find joy, peace, adventure and excitement and we want to share that.

We especially look forward to having families find that elusive real time together.  There just isn’t anything like being on a sailboat to allow for everything else to fade away and be connected to the people you love.  We can’t wait to help others find that perfect spot- that perfect moment that will be a memory that holds forever.

July 2023

I wanted to reach out and let you know what an amazing trip we had aboard Katrina. Erin and Ed were so friendly and welcoming from the beginning! We had the best vacation with them! Erin is an amazing chef and put so much care into making sure everyone is well fed with fresh healthy food! My 3 adolescents are tough in that one has a gluten allergy and one is vegetarian and the youngest is still growing 15 year old needing extra food often! (We appreciated that She had a basket of snacks refilled and readily available while Ed kept the cooler iced and stocked with everyone’s favorite drinks)...

June 2023

Erin and Ed, Thank you so very much for a wonderful week of sailing, exploration and incredible food! Your hospitality was above and beyond as well as your attention to all the details. You both made us all feel welcome, comfortable, well fed and cared for. We enjoyed getting to know you both and look forward to the next adventure!

June 2023

Erin and Ed, we thoroughly enjoyed the week. You were perfect hosts. The food was exquisite and plentiful. I really appreciated Ed's role as captain extraordinaire. Erin was so helpful to Andrea and I dealing with an awkward medical condition that came up! The sailing was great and the site selection was excellent. Overall, the two of you were amazingly accommodating and quick to ensure that all of our desires were met. Thank you!

June 2023

Thank you Captain Ed, Chef Erin, and SV Katrina for the most memorable 40th birthday celebration throughout the BVI. From snorkeling in caves to exploring The Baths, playing fun games in Maho Bay to claiming Pickly Pear island our own (and in the rain!) - we had an absolute blast. Erin - your cooking/bartending skills earned praise (better than our meal on Saba rock, even!) and you should consider joining the next cast of Bake Off. Ed thanks for literally sharing the helm and teaching some of us to become captains of our own! It's a trip we will never forget!

May 2023

Thank you for an amazing trip! Hoping this encourages our kids to take all the adventures in life..they loved it all! This is one of my favorite places on earth (made better by boat). The snorkels, hiking, really doesn't get better then this topped off every night with the most amazing desserts. Thank you Chef Erin. We will be back.

May 2023

The 'man overboard' maneuver to save a hat and dive from the dinghy to save a pair of sunglasses were very much appreciated and shows your commitment to ensure the safety and happiness of all (human and material objects) aboard! Taco had amazing adventures and felt all the love - we cannot wait to return. Ashley and Dan can't wait to put their new sailing skills to use in the future and continue the fun with your game - hysterical memories in the midst of maho magic. Thank you for the delicious food, delightful drinks, incredible adventures, beautiful sights, perfectly appointed boat, entertaining conversation, sailing lessons, outfitting/personal styling, and providing relaxation on another level! We will miss paradise and feel very grateful for this trip and opportunity to get to know the both of you.

May 2023

Ed and Erin, this has been one of our favorite family vacations thanks to your hospitality! The food was spectacular and so was Ed's honor! Such a perfect combination of relaxation, snorkeling, hiking adventures, laughter, family gams, and naps. We all enjoyed this so much! We have for the last few days been trying to find some days and trying to find some dates where we can come back and do it again. This is definitely one of those trips that was so valuable to us. You can't put a price tad on! Thank you thank you thank you! We will see you in Maryland soon for crabs!

April 2023

It's been one very special week! What a unique experience to spend seven days traveling the beautiful US Virgin Islands! Ed and Erin, you were so kind and accommodating in every way. You made us feel truly welcome and completely pampered. Amazing food all day, every day a the chance to choose our activities for the day were any travelers dream! We loved our game times with you both, our new, dear friends! Blessings and safe travels.
