Her storage capacity allows us to haul all the fun water toys including: unsinkable rigid tender with 20HP outboard, snorkeling gear, kayaks, stand up paddle board, and other toys.

Interaction with guestsQUIXOTIC is crewed by an experienced and professionally-certified sailing team. Rest assured that you are in the best hands. Your Captain, Sasha, has had passion for sailing from his young years. Together with his wife Jennie, they have become enchanted by beautiful nature, lush green mountains, pristine white beaches and especially by the friendly Fijians. Sasha got his first commercial boating license in his home country Slovenia, and later he earned his US Coast Guard Captain's 100 Tons diploma. He also holds Fijian boat master license.

Sasha and Jenny were wonderful host who took care of every little detail. They picked a great location for my family to snorkel, swim and enjoy the breeze from the smooth sailing experiences. We got to use the paddle board, put the fishing rod in (didn't catch anything unfortunately), lie in the hammock and eat a delicious meal prepared by Jenny. I highly recommend these folks for your Fiji catamaran sailing day!! We will be staying on the boat overnight next time we're in Fiji! Thank you Jenny and Sasha!

Our 3-night cruising trip with Sasha and Jenny was magnificent! The 'cat' is extremely comfortable and clean. We went around the Mamanuca Islands, Fiji, periodically stopping to snorkel, kayak, swim and paddle board - all equipment was supplied by our hosts. And the food Jenny prepared...I don't eat that well on land! Each breakfast, lunch and dinner (not to mention the 5 o'clock snacks with our drinks) were professionally presented and mouth watering scrumptious! We were a group of 5 (sleeps 6) and we would definitely re-hire Sasha and Jenny's cat again, and we highly recommend them to you. Vinaka vaka levu S & J ❤️

What a day. From start to finish Captain Sasha and his beautiful wife Jennie exceeded our expectations all day. They waited on us hand and foot non-stop, there was never a moment that we did not feel like royalty. Jennie is an unbelievable cook and Sasha has stories for days. The conversations with the two of them was more interesting than you can imagine. Sasha truly reminded me of the most interesting man. They have sailed all throughout the Pacific and have an amazing knowledge of the entire area. The boat itself is magnificent. It is in pristine condition, extremely clean and is all around beautiful. The open deck can seat at least 6 people and we spent most of our day out there. Whenever it got too hot, Jennie was able to make a shaded area for us so that we could still remain on the open deck without having to stay in the hot sun. Always comfortable and never too crowded, The Quixotic was amazing. We sailed from Momi Bay to Honeymoon Island (while on our honeymoon). While sailing Sasha and Jenny would point out interesting facts about the resorts or islands we were passing. We eventually anchored about 50 meters off the coast and snorkeled up onto the deserted beach. Seclusion doesn’t even describe this experience. Waiting for us on our swim back, Jennie and Sasha had the fresh water hose ready for us and some shampoo, conditioner and soap to take a quick shower right on the steps of the boat while overlooking the island. As soon as we were dried off, Sasha and Jennie surprised us with a bottle of champagne to enjoy with an amazing cheese and cracker board while Jennie cooked us our lunch. All while anchored off of Honeymoon Island. Lunch was incredible. Wahoo steak with sautéed vegetables and a potato purée. It was better than the food we have been eating at our Marriot resort! To top it off she served a homemade chocolate almond pie with a graham cracker crust. Incredible. I can go on and on about the magnificence of our day with Sasha and Jennie but I don’t want to give away too many more of their surprises (because there are a lot) but I hope you get the point. This experience was worth every penny. I was at first skeptical by the price but my wife and I both said afterwards that we would have even paid more. The day we spent with Sasha and Jennie will be one that we remember for the rest of our lives.

Starting out at Port Denarau, Fiji, our trip was magical! From Captain Sasha, First mate (wife) Jenny to Deckmate Marca we cannot say enough about our week on the Quixotic! The Quixotic details handled by Sasha were flawless. We saw multiple islands and reefs each offering unique and exciting experiences. Marca had every glass filled, every towel from the deck folded and followed up with details that were unexpected. Getting to know her was a true privilege. Frist mate Jenny did it all and I cannot emphasize this enough. She expertly prepared meals like a James Beard award winning chef. She was never without a smile and/or willing to stop whatever she was doing if you had a question. When my hubby caught a sushi worthy Walu (Spanish Mackerel) she made sure it was immediately properly cleaned and quickly changed the menu for our amazing sushi / shshimi dinner. This is something that I will never forget. When will I ever get the chance to have high end sushi grade fish go from hook to plate in a couple of hours? This is not to diminish the made from scratch meals for the rest of the week: fresh mango salsa, caramel tarts, chicken satay, pork chops, fritatta and so much more. All the gear is onboard for kayaking, snorkeling, stand up paddleboarding, fishing. Internet was accessible at all times. (shockingly) The beautiful people and islands of Fiji are incredible and if you want an experience away from the typical tourist version of Fiji, this is it for sure!!!

Thank you Lori! I cannot emphasize enough that the success of a charter also depends on the synergy between the guests and the crew. Your group was fantastic and we really had a great time cruising with you on board. I often had to remind myself that I was working and not on vacation with you. Thanks again for coming and remember - there are a lot more of pristine beaches and far away villages to visit. Your Captain Sasha

A trip of a lifetime! We had a magical week onboard the Quixotic. Sailing to remote locations in Fiji allowed us to experience a true family adventure vacation. From diving and snorkeling in pristine world class sites to being invited to attend a Fiji village church service, we found a truly unique experience. The vessel was well maintained, spotless and was well equipped with water sport equipment. The crew (Sasha, Jenny and Marca) were very experienced, warm and gracious. The hospitality was generous and the food healthy and delicious. We are still amazed that Jenny could prepare such delicious gourmet meals from that galley kitchen! Thank you for a great week and wonderful memories. We wish you smooth sailing in your tropical paradise.

We decided to have a one-day boat trip for some private time out on the Fiji seas and some quiet snorkelling. We were trying to avoid a mass group outing but rather were seeking something a bit more private. From the moment we enquired of Quixotic’s availability we had really fast and constant communication with Sasha and Jennie, with back and forth on the route we wanted to take and any special food requests. They helped us pick the best day for our outing and were really flexible with helping us to find the perfect sailing conditions and the right day for our trip. On the day, Sasha was a great host, meeting us and welcoming us aboard Quixotic. We had loads of time to relax and read in the rear lounge as well as spending some time just hanging out on the foredeck enjoying the spectacular views and watching the islands pass by. As a final treat, Sasha introduced us to the delights of banana rum... delicious. We loved our day aboard Quixotic and just wish that we’d booked a week!

Thank you Oli, thank you Jenny, you were fabulous guests that any captain could only wish for. I enjoyed having you on board. And as for your last sentence - just come back and discover more of these enchanted Fiji islands. We will have some specials available next June. Hope to see you back on Quixotic!

My stay on Quixotic was the epitome of the perfect vacation! Quixotic is a beautiful, impeccably maintained yacht; all was as described in the overview. The crew, Sasha and Jennie are warm, friendly, gracious hosts. Captain Sasha gained my trust as he expertly sailed the catamaran; Jennie as chef/stew continually amazed us with outstanding, delicious, healthy meals and snacks. Their combined local knowledge and love of sailing made for complete immersion in the cruising lifestyle. With the relaxing atmosphere on board and the beautiful Fijian scenery I’d say “pinch me, is this real?” I am so happy to have had the opportunity to experience this slice of heaven on earth, many thanks, vin aka!

Truly an exceptional week w Quixotic. We’ve bareboat chartered multiple times, so this was our first crewed charter- and it exceeded all expectations. Alyssa and Lewis were very accommodating and Kelli (chef/cook/stew) was simply off the charts. Unique, fresh, delicious meals - every meal. And, a great tropical cocktail inventer as well! Alyssa was there to greet us from minute one, as she was the skipper for our trip, and went out of her way to make sure we had anything we needed, for whatever we cared to do. Highly recommend if you are considering a sail vacation in the South Pacific!

The Best Trip of Our Lives!! Stayed ‎July, 2018 Dan & Lisa Setlak, Omaha, NE Wow! Absolutely perfect. There are not enough words for me express how amazing our week was aboard the Quixotic catamaran. Lewis is a truly spectacular captain and Alyssa’s cooking was nothing short of amazing. From the first moment we started sailing, we knew we were in good hands. - Lewis was incredibly informative responsive and willing to help create the best charter possible. When we stepped aboard, we were in awe of how beautiful and well-kept the boat was. The trip only got better from there. It was our first trip to the Fiji and the crew went above and beyond to show us everything the islands had to offer. Lewis and Alyssa truly love sailing, and it shows in his willingness to take us to the most beautiful and out of the way secluded spots. They took us to private beaches to snorkel, kayak, and paddle board, but also made sure we didn't miss the *must sees* places of Taveuni, Rabi, Buca and Vanua Levu. Alyssa not only provided our gourmet meals, but they were top-notch delicious meals that were thoughtfully planned and prepared using the natural resources of Fiji. She never seized to amaze us every beautifully creative and delicious meals. The boat itself was amazing and beautiful with a the state-of-the-art desalination system that provided fresh drinking and bathing water, which Lewis had clearly put a lot of work into. Alyssa not only cooked us amazing meals but took such wonderful care of us that we could truly relax and not have to worry about where we were going or what we were going to do next. Lisa and I have done a lot of traveling over the years, and this was the first trip where we got to live fully *in* every single moment we had as opposed to stressing about what came next. They were both charming and a lot of fun and willing to share their yachting experiences. We can’t imagine seeing the Fiji any other way than on the Quixotic catamaran; it was definitely a bucket list trip and we plan on going back for a repeat performance someday.

Do not hesitate to book with QUIXOTIC. It is beyond worth every penny. My husband and I traveled with our two friends through the remote islands of Fiji thanks to QUIXOTIC. The professionalism, kindness, service, and adventure provided by the QUIXOTIC team is unlike anything I could have imagined. Every meal made by Alyssa was INCREDIBLE (I am still blown away at her ability to plan and cook such gourmet meals for 6 people for an entire week in the middle of the South Pacific ocean). They were attuned to our every need and provided us with an adventure we will never be able to replicate or forget. The accommodations are comfortable, your privacy and space are honored, and every effort is made to provide you with the activities and experience you are hoping for. QUIXOTIC truly shows you a side of Fiji you cannot access on your own or through ANY hotel stay. Do it. Sailing is how Fiji was meant to be experienced :)

About the neighbourhood
What type of food and drinks do you serve aboard? Once you confirm your charter booking we will send you a preference sheet that helps us tailor the menu and drink selection to your preferences. We will prepare a menu and stock the boat based on the feedback we receive from the preference sheets. Our resident stew/cook can cook to your dietary preferences and restrictions. Although not included in your charter rate, we can also arrange to have local or imported beer/wine stocked and chilled aboard prior to your arrival. Upon booking we will send a price list of spirits, wine and beer available locally.
Getting around
What is the typical duration of a charter? While the requested duration of the charter will be up to you, we typically recommend planning for a week aboard. That allows time to settle in, sail to some amazing places, enjoy the activities we offer, and still find time to relax. A week is also the perfect amount of time for the most adventurous guests to evade any sign of boredom. That said, if you're the type who longs for extended days spent in the shade of the bimini swinging in the hammock or more time diving/kiting/surfing/etc. you may want a few extra days. We typically limit our charter durations to 10 days but exceptions can be made in some circumstances. Please let us know what you have in mind.
