Marianne's Fresh Gourmet Food & Kristian's Irresistable Tropical Drinks

Food is a critical part of any vacation experience and our customers typically want something special & memorable. Fortunately Marianne’s father was a chef and she was brought up with a love and interest for cooking. Our extensive traveling has only served to broaden her culinary horizons and gourmet options, creating mouth watering delights. Marianne enjoys cooking with fresh produce and fruits and making her healthy meals from scratch. We of course cater to special dietary needs.

We also stock bottled water, juices, soft drinks and beer in our on-deck cooler and in the bar we carry a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Standard bar is included.

Thank you so much for a wonderful week at sea. As this was our first time for such a trip, you made us feel at ease and most welcome the minute we stepped on board. You are both great hosts. Marianne, what a fabulous cook you are and Kristian a most accommodating bartender. It was a fun and relaxing week with any memorable moments. “Get out of our cove”!

Best wishes to you both and safe sailing.

Marianne and Kristian what a week! Thank you for making our trip outstanding. We could not have asked for anything more. You thought of everything. The food was unbelievable and how amazed we were, when there was nothing out and then all of a sudden, out came a meal better than any fine restaurant. You took us to all the best spots in BVI. We had the best time with our old friends and our two new ones.

Thanks, Michael and Erin

Marianne and Kristian. We had a wonderful time on Breanker the past nine days. After ten years of chartering in BVI we must say that Marianne is by far the best chef we’ve ever had! Your meals were a delight and we thank you enormously for the recipes. (The royalty check is in the mail). We loved the snorkel spots and especially the “Jacuzzi”! Thank you so much for the warm hospitality and sharing your home at sea with us. Wishing you good health and many great times with your grand kids.

Our very best regards, The Nobles, the Rogers, and the Morissons

I had a great time snorkeling and seeing the marine life. I also enjoyed your cooking though I do not know how you cooked in such a small kitchen. Lastly I enjoyed spending time with my family whom I don’t get to see that often, as I’d like. Thanks for a great week. All the best.

Kristian and Marianne, How can we describe the incredible seven-day journey aboard your floating home in earthly paradise. The beauty and the surroundings were only exceeded by your hospitality, charm and the embrace of us. We had no idea we were going to be feasting on choice gourmet cuisine and delicious libations in the company of our friends and new friends. Thank you so much for the lifetime of memories you have given us. May Good keep you and bless you till we meet again!
