Owners & Crew - Kristian & Marianne

Experience, Experience & More Experience

We are Kristian & Marianne, and this is our business. We are Danish citizens and have been sailing together for over 30 years.  Marianne holds an International Yacht Master 3rd Degree license and Kristian holds an International Yacht Master 1st Degree license.  We designed and built two larger sailboats from scratch and we've sailed the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, the English Channel, the Mediterranean, the Pacific Ocean & the Carribean.  In fact, we sailed across the Atlantic Ocean twice, once in a boat that we built.  We have chartered boats for customers like you for 27 years in the Bahamas, Central America, and the Virgin Islands where we have been for the past 22 years.

We understand customer service and care about your catamaran vacation experience in a way that larger companies and younger crews simply cannot.  Our extensive experience with boats and chartering will give you a greater peace of mind and allow you to more fully relax and enjoy your vacation.

You are the best host’s we have ever had! Every little thing you did made us feel at home and pampered at the same time. You took us to the most wonderful spots for snorkeling and enjoying the views. We love your boat and the two of you! The food was fantastic! Thank you so much!

This is difficult to put into words just how unique our time has been on Breanker and with the two of you. Your patience, obvious experience and talent on deck and in the kitchen, and your infectious smiles are unparalleled. I can only say thank you for sharing part of your lives with us. People are truly blessed to have spent time with the two of you. We share that blessing.


Safety from In-Depth Knowledge

We designed and built our first sailing yacht, a traditional 68' Baltic Trader, Nana, in Denmark in the seventies and set off in 1983 on a four-year cruise in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. We sold Nana and we started the project of designing and building Casador, a luxurious 68' aluminum sloop which became the cover of Cruising World in Feburary 2003 shown in the picture here.  We chartered Casador for many years, giving us a unique perspective on exactly what makes a boat great for customers.

We used that knowledge to completely retrofit Breanker for your pleasure and safety.  We know our boat to a level of detail that many charter captains will never understand.

Thank you both for a wonderful week – We are speechless!!!

I am so glad we went with you for our charter! You made the trip so easy for us but we know the two of you worked so very hard. Your experience shows and we had complete confidence in your knowledge, skill and judgment. You made us feel safe and took excellent care of our young children – our most valuable treasures!

Dear Marianne and Kristian. I am not sure how to put into words our experience with you. Thank you for sharing your home, life experiences, knowledge and passion for the islands. The trip was so much more than I expected. Not only did you show us coves and beaches that because of your knowledge we would not have found on our own, and you showed us friendship! How lucky we are to have spend our 30thanniversary with two people who has been together “forever” and love each other so much as you do. I admire your passion for each other. So rare today and such an inspiration for us all.

Kristian and Marianne, Thank you! Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us for our seven (7) day weekend. You two are an amazing couple, which simply made our stay on the high seas better than imagined. My favorite moments were listening as you shared your lifetime of experiences and adventures with us. You have a beautiful history together and amazing stories to tell, from high school sweethearts to senior adults you have consistently taken small things in life and made them bigger. The VW Beetle is a perfect example- to the average person the bug wasn’t road worthy, however you two saw it differently. Working hand in hand with limited resources you made her worthy and traveled throughout Europe sporting her nine colors and even allowed hith hikers to share the experience. Thank you for sharing your passion for life and living. The past week has been nothing short of amazing.



Dear Kristian and Marianne,

Kyle describes how I feel about being on the boat with you for seven days. You treat us like family. We have been so comfortable on your boat. You gave us tips to where to go and what to see. We loved the quiet snorkeling spots. I loved that I didn’t have to lift a finger. A true vacation. I feel very spoiled. Thank you!



Thank you for an awesome vacation Marianne and Kristian. We have enjoyed our time with you and “the Islands”. The food was excellent! The drinks were excellent! 

Cheers, Teresa and Graham

Thank you for all these wonderful days! We’ve felt at home (considering home in paradise). You are so experienced and loving that time, it has been unforgettable. Wish we come again soon. Hope we meet again here, in Spain or Denmark. Thank you for the wonderful trip and anticipations for your work, sailing, cooking, everything!!



Thank you very much. It’s been really like being with family. Everything in the boat is well maintained, the food is good and the relationship with you two is a bless. I hope to see you again not long from now.



Marianne and Kristian. We had a wonderful week aboard Breanker despite the wind. You achieve something that is not always easy in a little space such as a boat that is to make us feel at home. I love to say also that the Breanker is so well maintained that it doesn’t show it’s age. You can tell that there is a lot of hard work behind that and I appreciate it. To summarize it, thank you very much for a perfect holiday. Will tell about it to our friends and who knows, you might have some over here in the near future.

Good sailing, Tahi and Clara

Marianne and Kristian. Thank you very much for a wonderful second trip on the Breanker. We loved our first trip with you in May 2010 and didn’t think that could ever be topped. But top it you did and exceeded our expectations bar far. We loved all the sailing time we had this week as the weather cooperated for sailing. We loved Marianne’s Denmark lesson. I know I learned a lot about an area I knew nothing about. But the thing we loved most was being able to spend time with you during our fabulous meals. You both have so much to share about your life stories. We loved hearing all about them. We feel like you have been part of our lives for a long time. Hopefully our paths will cross again some time! Thank you, Chris and Greg
