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!

Kathy and Jeff

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!

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

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!

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.


Kristian and Marianne. Thank you so much for this amazing experience. Being able to relax completely stress free with my family has been wonderful. We will never be able to top this experience from this amazing time in our lives. You have both been kind and so unbelievably accommodating. 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

P.S. Marianne, also wanted to thank you for sharing your holistic reads and coconut oil with me.


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.
