Captain Dick Stuart and Chef/Steward Kim Richards combine their love for each other, love of sailing, and commitment to exceptional hospitality to guarantee guests wonderful memories aboard Devine. They are passionate about the experience they deliver, cultivating a feeling of adventure and joy, that is sure to last far beyond your time in their care.
Dick Stuart, Captain:
Captain Dick Stuart, a mechanical engineer by training, enjoyed a successful career in construction sales management. He started his sailing career at the early age of 10 in an El Toro on Lafayette Reservoir in Northern California. Growing up, much of his time was spent sailing on San Francisco Bay and extensively bareboat chartering throughout the Caribbean. Captain Dick, in preparation for what he thought was a “retirement dream plan” continued to hone his sailing skills over the years.
He holds a 100 TON MASTERS WITH SAILING ENDORSEMENT, an FCC Marine Radio Operators Certification and a Dive Master Certification. Captain Dick has an excellent reputation as “the troubleshooting ninja”, and uses his knowledge of mechanical systems to anticipate all the “what ifs.”
Safety is Captain Dick’s priority for his guests, but FUN is his second! An adventure seeker and water lover, he moved to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico 4 years ago and loves sailing the beautiful aquamarine waters and island hopping.
Captain Dick welcomes all guests with his famous Captain’s Cocktails nightly! He is an avid Cribbage player and will challenge the best!
Kim Richards, chef and steward:
A former ER and Critical Care RN, Kim’s love for sailing began in 2012, the first time she set foot on a catamaran in the BVI. She has been “hooked” ever since! After completed sailing classes in Colorado and California, Kim captained several catamarans in Mexico and the Caribbean. She delights in creating the ultimate self-care venue for guests and sharing the magical experience of sailing the beautiful Caribbean waters!
An avid traveler, Kim has a great sense of adventure. Her adventures have taken her bungee jumping in New Zealand, skiing in the European Alps, fly fishing in Montana and Utah, volunteering as a nurse in Ethiopia and Uganda, hiking in Patagonia and Class V white water rafting in Colorado. A fitness and yoga instructor for over 30 years, she lives an active lifestyle in whatever location she may be.
Kim exudes a tranquility to the guests that is based on her lifelong practice of yoga and meditation, allowing everyone the opportunity to absorb the soothing nature of the sea. Come along as she paddle boards to the shore for a yoga on the beach session!
An accomplished business owner, speaker and author, she understands the ultimate importance of customer service and has a keen eye for personal detail. Kim is extremely passionate about food and hospitality, ensuring every delicious meal is prepared according to guest preference. From her attention to detail to her carefully crafted meals and cocktails, Kim ensures your vacation experience far exceeds your expectations!

We recently returned from a charter leaving from St Thomas through the USVI.
What an amazing experience this was! Captain Dick and Kim went above and beyond to make this charter so memorable. Dick made us feel safe with his boat captain skills. He took one of our party on several dives. The diver reported Dick as a calm and proficient diver. Dick also plotted out a great itinerary and knew each spot very well, giving us many options to explore the sea and the land.
Kim was a perfect chef and hostess. She anticipated a need and made things happen. The food she prepared was top notch; from filet mignon, seared tuna, tiramisu, and a devine chocolate mousse. Kim provided an easy, relaxed atmosphere onboard our floating Caribbean oasis!
I would recommend Devine Sailing to anyone looking for a Caribbean charter where you can relax and enjoy the moment under the safe expertise of her crew, Dick and Kim.
Our week aboard Devine Sailing was amazing! Kim and Dick are great hosts, and the boat was excellent.
Kim's cooking was top shelf. The drinks were too! Dick was a great captain and fun companion for the week. The boat was in immaculate condition and it was always clean. Lots of fun activities on the boat and at the beaches. We highly recommend Devine Sailing!
One of the best trips ever. We had a group of 8 and with most of us being boaters, some of us were concerned about having enough room for all of us on a 50’ boat. That was not an issue at all. The boat is very wide and spacious. The cabins have plenty of room & each has its own bathroom. The crew were amazing and have the local knowledge of the best places to see and to anchor. The food was great, before the trip we let them know our basic preferences & each night we were pleasantly surprised with what the chef created for us. They just took care of everything so our only job was to relax. We will definitely be back again.
The crew of Devine Sailing are truly the best of the best! We instantly became a team of adventurers in paradise. They worked tirelessly to ensure a good time was had by all! Hospitality att its best coupled with three absolutely delicious meals a day in the most beautiful venues. Can't wait to come again!

Devine Sailing was truly devine! The crew were amazing - they filled every need - food and drink were fantastic. They made sure we had plenty of fun things to do like hiking, paddle boarding, and skimmer board. We highly recommend Devine Sailing
-Matt & Pam
Our Kentucky group of 10 had a very relaxing, stress free week. All of our needs were met with such kindness. Strangers are friends you haven't met yet and this crew are now our friends.
-Jim & Jackie
We found an awesome boat with an exceptional crew! Yes, you will assume it’s too expensive….. you say you wish you could go….. or you can’t get away from your kids….. I would love to prove you wrong. It’s life changing! You will be surprised how much better your friendships will be, when you leave. This boat puts you in a situation to become so much closer as friends!!! One can’t really explain this “WOW” factor. You need to experience it.
Lots of laughs on this adventure
He had so much fun on our sailing trip. Lots of laughs, great food, and adventures. The crew was amazing, and kind. My brain is in overload with all the memories made on this trip. Until we sail again!
We were fortunate to take this amazing trip. You couldn’t ask for two better people. We saw so many beautiful places. It was fun, relaxing and amazing!
Would definitely recommend anyone take this trip of a lifetime!!
Trip of a lifetime
This is absolutely the trip of a LIFETIME! We've sailed MANY times with Devine Sailing and you won't find a better experience on the beautiful waters of the virgin islands
Devine Sailing is just that....DEVINE!!! Best vacation ever! You will be spoiled by scrumptious meals, wonderful crew and captain, and the greatest sailing adventure of a lifetime!! The Virgin Islands are gorgeous! We can’t wait to do it again soon!!
One of the most amazing vacations I've ever experienced. Highly recommend taking a 7 day trip with Captain Dick & Chef Kim on Devine Sailing
Vacation of a lifetime...
Vacation of a lifetime. Highly recommend to everyone! Dick is one of the best captains. So enjoyable
This trip was the most amazing vacation I've taken. I've been 3 times with Devine sailing and you really cannot beat the pricing for the awesome experience. If you want to have an island getaway without all the people, this is it. Staying on the boat for a week is just what my soul needs each time to literally let it all go. I highly recommend Devine sailing, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, St. John, and St. Thomas, the amazing beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving, and the quaint little bars, shops, and restaurants you get to visit while aboard the Devine's boat. The trip really was Devine each time!
