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

Our first BVI experience and a memorable one. The trip far surpassed our expectations – from the blue water, the snorkeling and most definitely the food and service.

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

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.

So thrilled that our first introduction to the BVI was on board the Breanker. We loved celebrating the New Year at Foxy?s, exploring great snorkeling spots and soaking up the sun in the trampoline! The eight of us had a fantastic vacation. We are all well rested and well fed. Thank you!

Bill, Sheila, Riley and Grace

Maggie

Beautiful week spend down here with you pirates. Thanks again for all your hospitality, the food was unreal!

Connor

To great hosts! We came as a group of 8 friends from Lake lure. We sometimes call ourselves ?Lake Lure Locusts? because we came as a swarm. I was not sure what to expect, but I will never forget the great times we had during our 8 days. Snorkeling was awesome, I got to use my noodle sling (could have sold it several times) and the very good hike at the Bitter End was so great. To me the highlight of the trip was the sailing with both sails. Now for the most important part the food. We could have never imagined how good it was going to be. Our every wish and desire was granted to us. Hats off to both of you. P.S. Come and visit us in the mountains.
