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 20 years in the Bahamas, Central America, and the Virgin Islands where we have been for the past 16 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 and Quest for your pleasure and safety.  We know our boats 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 Kristian and Marianne. Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. You two are gracious hosts who made us feel at home and so very welcomed. We have all had a wonderful time this week with ya?ll on Breanker and are so looking forward to seeing you again for another smooth sailing vacation. You two are such a wonderful team with great food, wonderful sailing and delicious blueberry cheesecake to boot! (Hopefully Scott can make it next time.)

It?s a rather sad morning as we draw near to St. John to end another beautiful time with you both on Breanker. We?ve enjoyed our time with you again and hate to see it come to an end. You both are consummate hosts. Thank you for sharing your boat and yourselves with us. My favorite breakfast place in the world is the cockpit of Breanker wherever she may be anchored or moved.

Woody and Linda

Well, we?ve had another wonderful trip?. with friends this time. Thank you so much for taking such good care of all of us ?old folks?!! Again we couldn?t have asked for any thing better?. food, hospitality, graciousness? all just right. Thank you especially for the lobster bisque and the wonderful lamb chops!! The only problem was we had to wait 6 weeks before we could be back onboard with y'all. Love to you both and wishes for a successful end of season.

Martin and Jodie, 22-time repeat customers

Kristian and Marianne, where do I start? This has been a wonderful week. From the moment we stepped onboard our every need and want has been taken care off. All meals were wonderful, coves spectacular and the company was great! It will be extremely hard to step back into reality next week. Thank you for a wonderful trip!! We look forward to returning!

Michelle and Richard

Kristian and Marianne, It is hard to describe in words how wonderful this past week has been. It truly has been a dream vacation! Your hospitality and all your efforts to provide such an exciting and wonderful week is so appreciated! Our meals were delicious and served with such beautiful flair. 11 years ago Rex and I were in Tortola and saw boats like this in various areas we visited. It looked like the guests were having so much fun. Even with such a memory I could not imagine just how wonderful this week truly would be! It has been a trip of a lifetime!! Thank you!!

Rex and Susan

Kristian and Marianne, from the moment we stepped onboard have been amazing! Our rooms were very comfortable and clean. The food was incredible?. Every meal was wonderful. Beautiful snorkeling and sailing was great. What we liked most was the personal experience with both you and Kristian. This was a once in a lifetime but hoping to do it again soon. Thanks so much for the great hospitality and experience.

Kristian and Marianne, thank you for a fabulous week! Every thing was first class. It was my first crewed charter and I shall never ever bare boat again.


Kristian and Marianne, thank you for a week in Shangri-La!! Smooth sailing, DELICIOUS food, always a smile and great stories. The Breanker is Heaven. You showed us the best BVI, but your warm style added to the special feeling. It was an absolute pleasure to sail with you ? many, many thanks!
