The perfect team
Captain and Crew
Living The Dream Charters is a family owned chartering company with over 20 years of sailing experience. We organize captained yacht charter vacations of no more than groups of 6 people. This allows guests to have a more intimate and personal experience than what they will find on large commercial cruising charters. We enjoy getting to know each member of our sailing charters and we also have greater flexibility with places to visit because of our limited size and extensive knowlege of the BVI sailing area. We hope that you would consider allowing us to put a BVI sailing charter together for you. We look forward to having you aboard Living the Dream Charters! - Captain Adam and Emilie
Emilie Bashore, First Mate
Emilie is one woman that can do just about anything. In 1994, she was introduced to the world of sailing. It was aboard The Salty Dog, a 22' Catalina moored at the Great Salt Lake. Since then she has helped many experience the joy of BVI sailing with Living the Dream Charters. She enjoys teaching sailing skills to our guests, soaking up the BVI sunshine and exploring the Caribbean waters looking for sea critters and hidden treasure. She recently received her undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies at the University of Utah.
Adam Bashore, Captain
Captain Adam and his wife Emilie launched Living the Dream Charters, after having sailed together for the past twenty years. In 2011, they discovered the beauty and charm of the British Virgin Islands. They immediately fell in love with this Caribbean archipelago and Living the Dream Charters was born. Captain Adam's home port is the Great Salt Lake, Utah where he spends time with family and friends aboard Island Girl, a 27' Catalina.
