Capt. Bob Koontz

22 years ago, Peggy and Bob fell in love and were married on a Jamaican beach. After that amazing introduction to island life, they have been enthralled with everything the Caribbean has to offer; its rich cultural diversity, endless beauty and island lifestyle. Sharing an enthusiasm for adventure, they love the Caribbean, the ocean, sailing, diving, biking, traveling the world and entertaining.

They both have a passion for cooking and have successfully completed several courses including a 16-week professional Italian culinary course from Loretta Paganini’s School of Cooking. Bob recently won first place at an Ohio competition, for his gourmet baby-back pork ribs, featuring a dark chocolate and a home-grown hot pepper dry rub.

There’s nothing Peggy and Bob enjoy doing more than cooking for a crowd, whether it’s a themed Mardi Gras dinner for 50 featuring their amazing Gumbo and homemade pralines, Caribbean night highlighting Bob’s specialty jerk chicken or an intimate Italian meal of Braciiole and pasta with Barolo wine for friends or family.

Owners of Tropical Holiday Vacations, a vacation property company featuring Villas on the western coast of Florida. Proud to have earned an average of 5-star reviews and Superhost status from both Airbnb and VRBO, they are driven to offer the best, most memorable experience for their guests; they are not happy with anything short of delighting their clients.

A lifelong dream has finally come true as Peggy and Bob have set sail with Nauti Cat, their brand-new Lagoon 50 Catamaran. With their passion for sailing, cooking and entertaining, they will bring you exquisite food, extraordinary accommodations and a fantastic unforgettable experience. They both have extensive experience sailing in and around the Caribbean. Bob has been sailing since college where he was very active in the Purdue Sailing Club. He loves racing both catamarans and monohulls.

Chef Peggy Koontz

Peggy’s vibrant and caring nature ensures that everyone feels completely welcome and at ease. Peggy continually works to refine and enhance her culinary skills. She is registered to attend the Yacht Chef Course at the Ashburn Cookery School, in the United Kingdom to further refine her culinary skills. She is also very excited to be working with award winning chiefs, both in Charleston and around the world, to develop new delightful dishes to feature in 2021. Her attention to detail makes sure everything is just right.

Bob started his vocation as an engineer with a degree from Purdue University and earning a master’s degree from Case Western University. He has worked for Fortune 500 companies and most recently in private equity. During his career, Bob has traveled the world conducting business on almost every continent.

Introduced to diving, on their honeymoon, Bob is a Nitrox certified advanced underwater diver with plans to complete the rescue diver course and obtain his dive master certification. He has dived around the world, including living on a dive boat in Australia and exploring the worlds second largest barrier reef in Belize.

Finally, Peggy and Bob are living their dream, by sharing the thrills of sailing, the majesty of the ocean and the wonders of marine life, throughout the islands, with others.

January 2021

We just finished a 7 night cruise aboard the Nauti Cat in the US Virgin Islands. This 50’ catamaran is crewed by the owners, Capt. Bob and Peggy. They have gone above and beyond to outfit their boat beautifully. It is a new boat, with lots of bells and whistles. They have it decorated tastefully, prettier than a lot of boats I’ve seen. They love hosting and made delicious, elaborate meals for breakfast lunch and dinner. All our dinners were special. Each meal was set with placemats, cloth napkins and napkin rings. They had soft sheets and pretty beach towels. They had lots of water toys, including a sub wing which we tried out- it felt like flying! We were celebrating a big birthday, anniversary and New Year’s, and they made an elaborate meal for all three occasions, including special napkins and decorating the boat. In short, Capt. Bob and Peggy are perfect hosts. We can’t recommend the Nauti Cat enough!

December 2020
What can we say that really portrays the experience we just had. We honestly had the most unforgettable and extraordinary time on board Nauti Cat. Capt. Bob & Peggy were extremely professional and ensured we were taken care of with 5-star service at all times but enough space to really enjoy ourselves. It was the perfect balance. 

Our trip through the USVI's was one for the books. While enjoying the many toys and amenities that come with the charter on Nauti Cat we truly were able to unwind and take a much needed break from every life. We could not have asked for more.

The plated food that Peggy provided was top-class and wowed us at every meal. Capt. Bob was professional and ensured our safety throughout the trip. Our favorite time was being able to sleep on the flybridge and waking up with a 360 view of paradise, so awesome!

What an amazing experience, we can't wait until we return! Thanks again guys!
