Luxury catamaran COLIBRí offers bespoke, all-inclusive charters for up to eight guests.

The 67’ yacht has spacious private spaces and multiple social areas for couples, families, and groups of friends to gather. The forward cockpit and cushions on the trampoline are a favorite spot while sailing with the spacious flybridge providing 360° views. The large cockpit dining table provides comfortable seating for all guests and accommodates the tailored creations of your chef. After an active day or an adventurous night snorkel, guests love to unwind in the onboard jacuzzi!

Your Crew

CAPTAIN GRAHAM & CHEF/MATE KRISTIANN

Your Captain and Chef are native Texans who have been married since 2007. Avid travelers, Kristiann and Graham have lived on four continents and visited over fifty countries. Their experiences have taught them that great vacations are made up of many small details. Consummate hosts, Graham and Kristiann delight in creating memories for their guests.

After 10 years in the corporate world, the Gips reached a point where they could focus on what they love to do most: travel, host guests, and sail. In 2015, they purchased a 44’ catamaran, Allende, upon which they began their chartering career and sailed over 30,000 nautical miles. After seven successful seasons aboard Allende, Graham and Kristiann were thrilled to upgrade their charter program aboard the luxurious Colibrí.

Both Graham and Kristiann are licensed by the United States Coast Guard and are CPR/First Aid certified. They are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. They will be joined by a third crew member for the 2023-2024 season.

Captain Graham Gips

Graham is an engineer by training who spent a successful career in the oil and gas industry. While working abroad, he learned to sail on a 20ft racing dinghy with Kristiann as crew. They raced weekly for several years, topped the local podium and earned the chance to compete internationally.

While he has a competitive streak, Graham is a detail-oriented and safety-conscious sailor who puts the comfort of his guests first. He knows the islands well and can craft an itinerary that suits everyone aboard. When the anchor is set each evening, Graham then turns his attention to crafting cocktails to your taste.

Chef/Mate Kristiann Gips

Before joining the yachting industry, Kristiann ran a successful catering company. She honed her culinary skills by accommodating a wide variety of preferences and dietary needs each day. In 2021, Kristiann further refined her skills by training at the acclaimed Ashburton Cookery School in England.

Kristiann loves to combine gourmet ingredients with local delicacies for new twists on classic dishes. She works with the Captain to design a menu that perfectly complements your sailing itinerary. When she’s not in the galley, Kristiann enjoys escorting guests on snorkel safaris.

STEWARDESS STACEY

Stacey has worked as a professional diving instructor since 2017 in various locations around the world including Indonesia, Philippines, the UK and the British Virgin Islands. In 2022, she joined a liveaboard dive yacht for a season in the Turks and Caicos and a season snorkeling with Humpback whales in the Dominican Republic.
Stacey loves interacting with guests, sharing interesting stories and really takes the time to ensure comfort for all, both in and out of the water. She has a particularly strong knowledge of the local dive sites in the British Virgin Islands and enjoys encouraging guests’ interest in the underwater world.

Most Wonderful Family Trip

What a way to ring in the New Year! Thank you for a most wonderful family trip. We loved it all, from the sailing to the paddleboarding, tubing and snorkeling….and of course the food and drinks! It will be hard to top this…guess we will just have to keep coming back

Can’t Wait To Come Back!

Third charter in the history book! Every time is different--experiences & dining. The "Lamborghini" boat is off-the-charts amazing! Thank you for taking care of our every need and some we didn't even know we needed. Can't wait to come back next year...we will be counting the days.

Perfect Trip

I’m overcome with emotion reviewing the week we just experienced. You two make Colibrí a second home full of love, laughter and joy.
We had so many amazing meals and excursions. It’s hard to pick a top three because each day brought such a level of care and specialized experiences.
Thank you a million times for making this trip so perfect.
