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!

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 Ste...

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 ou...

AUGUST 2015

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 pre...
