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

 

More Guest Comments About Our Food...

OH WHAT A TIME!!! Island time! So sad to be going. But we need to get back to our friends and tell them about our new friends. All three generations found the food and kinship wonderful. You have become part of the family, so when we see you both in Denmark and back here in the VI’s we expect to hear about new adventures and dreams till next time.

Espanta

Kristian and Marianne, thank you so much for another wonderful week. The scenery was spectacular, the food was amazing and the company even better. Thanks again for your generous hospitality. All the best.

Teresa & Tom

2nd annual Chicago Parrot-head sail charter!

The second time was as good as the first! Both the returners and the newbie’s had a great time. The food and the hospitality was fabulous and the destinations were as well. Thank you for getting us safely to Virgin Gorda in gale force winds – it was totally worth it to get to the Baths. We appreciate the fact that you kept the sun shining all the time, even with the crazy winds. We will be back!

(Note to Kristian from Kristin: Thank you for telling me over and over what island we were on and where we were going and how long it would take to sail there!!)☺

Thank you for such a wonderful ride! We loved the sights/ the food/ the drink/ and the company. Safe home! Slainte!

Thank you so much for the great vacation and the great food!! We had so much fun!

Jessica

My vacation was amazing because of you guys. Thank you for putting up with my vegetarianess!

Kathrina

Where do I begin? The food (!), the delightful atmosphere, your willingness (and eagerness) to make every moment special.

After so many vacations, we’ve come to accept that – to most in the travel industry – we are just the few of the thousands of faces they need to deal with each year. You (both Kristian and Marianne) truly treated us as individuals. You were able to make each of us feel our wishes were catered to. From your willingness to provide crafts for young Lauren to your ability to accommodate our different interests from water sports to climbing to relaxing evenings – you did it all. We each got exactly what we wanted!

The topics of conversations always returned to the food! As my daughter said (on the previous page) – we’ve lived on three continents, eaten at the best restaurants and compared the delicacies of many chefs. The food here was a special treat for us. Always fresh, flavorful, varied and – delicious!!!! Our empty plates (and 10 extra pounds each!) are testimony to the skills of both of you!

Thanks for such a wonderful week of epicurean delights!

Best of all, however, was the time we spend with you our crew and now our friends. It was a pleasure to meet you and get to know you.

This was our 5th chartered yacht vacation so we have some experience and familiarity with other crews. Some were good, some not so good…. But you are excellent – without equal. Yes we will return to Breanker and we will suggest and refer you to our friends.

Thank you for a spectacular week in Paradise.

Patti

Thank you for a wonderful week of sailing. David has always wanted to sail the islands. This was amazing. There was some thing different and beautiful about each island. The food was delicious and beautiful to look at. We had no idea the food was going to be as good as it was. I know you will remember our group for the neat pickers. David is still thanking me for this gift to celebrate his big “50”. You make a wonderful team! Everything was great, thank you again for every thing!!!

Madeline and David

Thanks for a wonderful week !!! We have never been so relaxed and having a fun time in the sun! You are both wonderful people and we thank you for everything. May God bless you and keep you safe and happy.

P.S. I wish I could cook like you !!

Gary and Jane

I appreciate everything that you have done for us this week. It made our vacation so much fun and relaxing. And of course the food was wonderful! You are wonderful people and thank you again for a great week.
