BREANKER Crew Profile

Kristian Søndergård and Marianne Rasmussen

Marianne and Kristian are both Danish citizens, and both born in 1954. Two truly talented and extraordinary individuals, Marianne and Kristian are not only highly experienced world sailors, but have designed and built two fine yachts together in the past 25 years – Nana, a traditional 68 ft Baltic trader, completed in 1981, and Casador, a more contemporary luxurious 68 ft sloop, featuring sleek classic lines and sweeping overhangs, she was completed in 1991. Since 2005, Marianne and Kristian have been busy refitting and upgrading Breanker.

They sailed away from the Danish coast in 1983, their 10 year old son accompanying them, and worked Nana for the Danish government as a sail training ship for young people. They sailed the Baltic and North Seas, the English Channel and the Atlantic to the Azores, thence to the Mediterranean Sea and North Africa. Eventually the path lead to the Canary and Cape Verde Islands, and the Caribbean. After spending much time cruising the eastern seaboard of the U.S., the warm southern waters of the Bahamas, the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, Marianne and Kristian knew that the tropics was for them. After completing Casador, they started their charter careers in the Bahamas and along the shores of Central America before finally settling in the Virgin Islands, where they have now chartered for more than a decade.

Marianne holds an International Yacht Master 3rd Degree license, and Kristian holds an International Yacht Master 1st degree license. Marianne also has a university degree in education, and is a master of the art of canvas work and upholstery, having owned her own canvas and sail loft for a number of years. Her father was a chef, and Marianne was brought up close at hand and instilled with a love of cooking and a keen interest in fine cuisine. Their extensive travels have only served to broaden Marianne’s culinary horizons and gourmet options, creating mouth-watering delights for the many guests she has welcomed aboard for the past many years.

Kristian is by all rights a master shipwright, having operated his own yacht repair and wood working shop for years, though his education led him to fine arts, especially in art weaving. Kristian also has a passion for water sports, especially diving, and he is happy to share the fascinating marine life of the Caribbean with guests. Marianne and Kristian look forward to making your cruise aboard Breanker the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation ever.

Kristian and Marianne, spending a week on Breanker is like coming home for us! I don’t even remember how many times we have been here but you just can’t get rid of us. As always, this week was fantastic – even though we got in troubles for leaving our portholes open – (on the sail back from Anegada). Next time we promise to keep ALL our stars!

Marianne and Kristian. 
Once again you have outdone yourselves in making our trip enjoyable. We feel like you are part of our extended family now! Each of our five trips with Kristian and Marianne has been spectacular – great folks, food, scenery and company. Our family trip was enjoyed by all. Little harbor has the very best snorkeling and is Marianne’s favorite spot. Riley exceeded on the paddleboard and John made a valiant effort. All agreed that White Bay was the best beach in BVI. We have remained friends over the years and value our relationship with Kristian and Marianne.
Harold and Julie

Dear Kristian and Marianne, thank you for a wonderful week at sea. The views were incredible as well as the boat. This was a very unique experience for Riley and I. You made us feel very welcome and at ease. The food was awesome and I enjoyed trying out new things! We will keep up with you on Facebook.

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!

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 exiting 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.

Thank you for your hospitality, experience and wonderful meals. We enjoyed every minute of our time on Breanker. One of the best holidays we have ever had!
Gordon, Donna, Emma and Ethan 
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
 Thanks Marianne and Kristian for everything! Sorry we kept on forgetting to turn off the fans. We loved all the delicious meals you made for us (gluten-free too!) Yum.  J Agreed I think I gained 5 pounds!! But you kept us busy snorkeling and enjoying adventures both on land and in water! So thankfully I lost these 5 pounds! If you are ever in the Boston area be sure to reach out to us J we would love to show you our home too. Even though the weather there is probably as cold as Denmark. Thank you again, you really made our time in BVI special!
Best 
Riley (19) and Grace (18) 
Marianne and Kristian. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime! You took us on so many adventures that we’ll never forget.

Guests aboard BREANKER in early December, 2015
Dear Marianne and Kristian. 
This has been an amazing week!!! The hospitality, the food and the sights were GREAT!!!
hank you, Helen and George.
P.S. Come and visit us in Lake Lure 

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.
Chris and Carol.
P.S. Come and visit us in the mountains. 

Marianne and Kristian – A truly unique experience – full of fun and adventure. You both made us feel comfortable and relaxed. The food was excellent – a culinary delight! Thanks for a wonderful time!
Patti and Jim 

Thanks you for a wonderful first time! You were gracious hosts. Food was wonderful. We had a great time. Come visit us in North Carolina.

Without a doubt over the top – quality – quality – quality. We loved the food and of course the beverages as both Kristian and Marianne is very talented. We will rebook in the future, as we could not find one fault. All was perfect. We found that the other guests were also the best. They not only kept us entertained but took us to many spots in the BVI.
Bob and Marge 

Excellent meals, very experienced crew and very cordial to our every needs. Breanker is a wonderful memory for us. Go Vikings!
Marge 

This has been the most perfect experience. You both are very talented and make the charter so special for us. The food and beverages was top notch. It could not have been a better experience with yall. Everything was perfect. We cannot wait to visit again. I hope I didn’t ruin your boat too much J Thank you again.

Dear Marianne and Kristian. 
What a wonderful trip you made for us. The food was the best I have ever had! Obviously Bob too. You have converted him! I feel so blessed we meet you. So very blessed to be friends with Giselle and Steve for over 40+ years. This was awesome! The beaches, the views, the hospitality was the best. You all were so good to us!
Jan
P.S. Plus living with Bob on his 1st trip to BVI! We fell in love with both of you! 

This has been the best 40 years anniversary trip I could have asked for andd surprised Steve with. Andrew was so right, “Best crew you can get”. Thank you for a wonderful time and that very special Champagne to end the trip. I look forward to my Christmas card this December and every one after. One day we will be back and hopefully you and Kristian will still be here and not retired! Best trip ever! Thank you so much. 
Giselle 

May you never lie, steal or drink
If you lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you cheat, cheat death.
If you steal, steal way from bad company.
And if you must drink, then drink with us because we are your friends. 
Being in BVI is a blessing for Giselle and I. A trip of a lifetime that words can’t explain how I feel while I am here. Each day is a special memory and because we were able to enjoy the BVI with our children, I wish they were here. I am very grateful for all you have done for us on our trip. This trip is in honor of our 40th Anniversary so we will be back in 40 years
Steve and Giselle 

Kristian and Marianne. 
Thank you for hosting Martin and I for our first BVI trip together – very special. We are “foodies” and enjoyed every bite! Really delicious! Martin’s comment was “I know now I can stay in close quarters with you for a week”. He was just kidding but it really is the closest quarters we have been in together. You also have to understand that we also work together – just like you two. It takes a special couple to do this and you are! Wonderful week that we will remember for a lifetime! All is” gooder than good” as the Southerners’ says in SC…. We are sad to go….
Jennifer and Martin 

Guests aboard BREANKER in late May, 2015

We have enjoyed this trip so much from the scuba diving all the way to island hopping. My husband has known you all for 13 years and you are his favorite charter! We love the food company and (not to forget) the drinks.
We can’t wait to come and charter again with ya’ll one day! Thank y’all for welcoming us with open arms.
We love y’all, Allison
From John: I have loved y’all from my first time on the Casador (I was 10 years old the first time) to my senior trip on the Breanker. (I was 18 in May of 2010) To the trip on Breanker now in 2015
Vi elsker jer – We love you (in Danish), John
 
Every time I make it down to USVI, it is always a special treat when we can make it aboard Breanker. Sailing is the best and y’all; make the trip way more enjoyable with the great hospitality. The food is top notch and some of the best meals I have had in my life. This is the 3rd charter with you (one on Casador and two on Breanker) and hopefully this will not be my last!
Love, Ben
 
WOW, Kristian and Marianne! 15 years since our first trip with y’all and it is still awesome! Have lost track of the number of times – but this year – twice in three months – YEA!!
Y’all are excellent hosts and we have come to feel like you are part of the family. The food is always wonderful, table always set perfectly and attention to detail is great!! Kristian’s gentle spirit and calm way of dealing with snorkel trips and Scuba excursions always make us feel safe and looked after! Still from the moment we awake to “lights out”, you both see to all our needs – whether we are 2 or a group of 8! Thank you for taking care of our family so well for so many years! Have a great summer and we are looking forward to see y’all next season!!
With much love

This trip was our first experience chartering and it will not be our last! Everything was perfect. The boat is beautiful, smooth sailing and all the toys you need to have fun. The food was awesome and we never had a change to get hungry. Thank you for a beautiful day and a wonderful memory. Snorkeling was top notch – we saw so many beautiful fish. What a relaxing day – you took care of us so well. We totally enjoyed our first time and hope to do this again!

This was our second trip with Marianne and Kristian and it was absolutely perfect! The entire week was so relaxing and fun at the same time. Marianne and Kristian are wonderful people who make you feel at home. The food was so delicious and healthy (which was a great bonus). We had a group of 6 for the week and all of us are wishing we could stay longer. We are defentely coming back and wouldn’t sail with anyone except Kristian and Marianne. We had so much fun and can’t wait for the next trip and danci9ng with Kristian – what a blast! Wouldn’t have changed a thing on our trip!!

Wonderful week circumnavigating of the BVI’s. Food was a gourmet delight with extraordinary service. This was our first crewed charter on a cat, so I enjoyed the opportunity to sail wing-on-wing at the helm. Also our first time to Anegada and wonderful lobster dinner ashore. Stay Happy and Sail on!

Oh how we enjoyed sailing under the sun on the wonderful boat Breanker! We enjoyed beautiful views and calm seas. We even saw many underwater creatures including octopus and sea turtles and we even saw a few fireworks on NY’s eve.
Oh what a fabulous, extraordinary, special time we had!
Craig and Denise
 
Dear Marianne & Kristian,
 Hello! I hope that this finds you well following your video shoot and time with friends. It has taken two weeks, but we have finally assimilated back into our everyday routines.
We just wanted to let you know what an extraordinary time we all had on the Breanker. Your expertise navigating the BVIs was evident as you led us to unbelievable reefs, islands, and coves where we swam, snorkeled, kayaked, paddle boarded, hiked, and even water skied amidst a stunning tropical setting. How exciting it was for the children to see so many fish and underwater creatures (including an octopus), and discover seemingly endless amounts of conch shells (that you graciously attempted to prepare). And what a thrill it was to raise the sails and to share the helm with you! Marianne’s culinary skills were superior to any fine restaurant, as we enjoyed delicious and beautifully presented meals complete with fresh herbs grown on the boat. Your attention to detail was flawless, bar none – from fresh ground nutmeg in Kristian’s pina coladas to homemade gravlax and chocolate mousse to our impeccable quarters featuring nautical themed bed and table linens. More than anything else, your kindness, warmth, and hospitality made our trip truly special. Our family will forever remember our fabulous sailing adventure in the Caribbean.
Thank you again for everything. If you ever need a reference (or an extra hand on deck), we would be delighted to share our experience with others.
Wishing you calm seas and sunny skies in the new year.
With warm regards,
Denise & Craig Strauss

Marianne and Kristian, thanks for providing a fabulous and wonderful week in our very first visit to the Virgin Islands (and The Caribbean)! Fantastic food and drink – morning, noon and night! Accommodations are very comfortable. LOVE the rum!
 
Here’s to our brother, the pelican.
His beak will hold more than his belly can.
He holds more in his beak
Than he eats in a week
And I don’t know how the hell’ can
Michael Bean, The Pirate
 
Thanks Marianne and Kris.
Great relaxation, sun and water and wonderful memories.
Jim and Kip
 
Thank you both so much for taking such great care of us, especially me, during my sickness. The food was outstanding; Curt will speak of that forever.
We were treated like royalty!
 
This morning over looking the bays where we spent the nights were spetacular.
As every one comments, the food was very special. I have absolutely no reservation of recommending this trip to anyone wanting to visit BVI. FANTASTIC TRIP!
Curt and Ann
 
We sailed the ocean
6 days and 5 nights
BVI for to see
Sea life, rum and the sights
 
Our captain and cook took care of us so well
That we all gain some weight
And our waistline so swell
 
You two are the Best
To show us around
Indulge in our wishes
Experiences we found
 
So this is our thank you
Remembering the sand
You’re our friends forever
Kristian and Marianne!

Marianne and Kristian. Thank you again for opening your home to us during our vacation. You are very gracious hosts. We have enjoyed our time on your boat more than any of our past vacations. The cooking is out of this world (we will be the first in line for the cookbook)! The variety of ports and the knowledge of each enhanced the vacation. More than anything you let us have a great time and you also took part in it! Thank you for those implacable memories!
Thanks again! Ben and Diane

Kristian and Marianne. This has been a great vacation for us. We enjoyed you opening you home and personal stories to us. Every stop was an adventure and very exiting. The food was awesome and I ate things that I never thought I would try.
Thanks again Barb and Charlie.
