The inaugural run of a much-anticipated 50-passenger ferry running between St. Croix and St. Thomas is brought one step closer with the sea trial last week of QE IV, designed by entrepreneur Warren Mosler and built by Gold Coast Yachts of St. Croix. This is a labor of love for Mosler, who is not relying on any governmental support for the venture.

The addition of a door between these rooms effectively creates a 5th bedroom, for parents who need to be near their children. Sol y Sombra has been transformed from a 4-bedroom, 4.5 bath to a 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath property (each of the bedrooms has its own full bathroom, plus there is a powder room inside the air-conditioned office in the Main Pavilion).
