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

Kristian and Marianne, You two operate this boat and craft this vacation experience with a level of expertise, calm and warmth that has likely spoiled me for any other charter. I will remember every delicious morsel and the coral flower garden for years to come. Thank you for letting us take part in this harmonious adventure with you and we hope to see you in 2017 if not sooner.

We?ve loved your stories and truly enjoyed meeting you both. The food, what else can we say?INCREDIBLE!! I hope to be back w/larger families. J

Mary and Sean

Kristian and Marianne, What an amazing week! Thank you so much for sharing your boat with us. We loved the amazing food. Marianne, you are a great cook. Great places to snorkel. Just loved everything J

Michael and Shari

Kristian and Marianne, Thank you, thank you, thank you. My husband and I have traveled to many places and experienced many hosts. You by far are our favorite. As first time sailors you?ve made this the best experience ever. Your food was to die for and we are very picky about food quality. Every island stop we made you made it so easy and delightful to get around and enjoy. Our rooms were delightful for a 6?6ft man and his 5?10 wife. Your home (boat) felt like home and you made us feel so welcome! I could recommend your charter or this experience to anyone and know they would be in good hands. Thank you so much for such a beautiful, happy and enjoyable vacation. I feel honored to have met you and hope we meet again ? in Denmark or back on Breanker ? we may have small babies next time but you already promised that was OK! xoxo

Lauren and Joe

Kristian and Marianne, An unbelievable experience. We have never enjoyed a vacation more than this one and we have been on many, trust me. The best part is that it was totally stress free? we never had to make a decision, we were totally catered to every minute, and the food was incredible. We will totally be back!

Linda and Dan

Well, Kris and Marianne, we made it back!! One of these times we actually have to count the number of trips we have made with ya?ll. It?s been 16 years now since our first and quite a few times we have been lucky enough to be with you more than once a season! As always, the time this year was amazing! Laid back for us this time ? no snorkel or swim trips which was just what we needed! Getting us to our favorite anchorages in time for cocktails, lobster dinner at Anegada Reef, special time with you both on Cow Wreck beach, Anegada, Marina Cay, Peter Island, lunch at The Top Of The Bath ? all new wonderful memories to add to our own list. Time on Breanker is always so special ? the hospitality, the food ? amazing ? always SO GOOD, comforts of home and we are always still so pampered and cared for! We truly love you guys and hope to add to our memory and many more times on Breanker!! If not once more this season, hopefully next!! Thank you again for ALL you do and for always making us feel so special!! Much love.

Martin and Jodie, 20? Trips in 16 years

Marianne and Kristian. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime! You took us on so many adventures that we?ll never forget. I said it every time I passed the galley, and every time each meal was served but the food was AMAZING!!! Not only did we have a great time, but we learned so much about the BVI, sailing and your Danish culture. Thank you both for these amazing memories that we?ll hold dear to our hearts.
