23rd Charter! WOW! Guests aboard catamaran BREANKER for their 23rd charter with Marianne and Kristian said...
Dear Kristian and Marianne,
Well, on our 23rd trip now you are still introducing us to “firsts”. The overnight in Honeymoon Bay with the world-class musicians on Water Island was fantastic. It’s very rare (unheard off) to go to Carnegie Hall in shorts and flip-plops! And then to Maho Bay on St. John to Marina Cay to Leverick. Thank you for joining us at Hog Heaven – what a view! Then to Anegada – thank you for spending the afternoon at Loblolly Beach, gorgeous, especially watching the breakers on the reef. Back on Breanker for snacks and adult beverages – I still can’t believe that sunset – incredible!! Have you ever seen the ocean that still? 30 feet of water and we could see the starfish on the ocean floor. Long smooth ride to Green spit Friday, another first with the wind mostly from the northwest. Then our last night on board anchored in front of the Bee Line. Okay, so I’ve written too much. It was a great trip! Oh, and the food, as always, was gourmet. Hope to be with you guys again soon!
Martin and Jodie
P.S. I forgot to mention the lobster dinner with you guys at Anegada Reef Hotel – It was wonderful! Thanks again.

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,
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!!
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.

What an amazing time we have had. We were the virgins to the BVI but what a fab boat, crew and crewmates we have had. Amazing experience. Kristian and Marianne made our maiden voyage in BVI that will last forever and we hope we will return again. (If you will have us).

From guests aboard BREANKER for New Years 2015/2016:
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!
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. I said it every time I passed the galley, and every time each meal was served but the food was AMAZING!!! Not only did we have a great time, but we learned so much about the BVI, sailing and your Danish culture. Thank you both for these amazing memories that we’ll hold dear to our hearts.
I loved being onboard the Breanker. Some of the best days I have ever had. Weather was relatively good J the food was amazing. I had a fun time doing one of my first salt water dives with Kristian (our amazing captain). Checked out some great spots, meet some nice people….and had a great time!Ethan (13)P.S. Thanks for the food Marianne and the dive Kristian and every thing to the both of you!

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.
Love Joan and Russ
Guests aboard BREANKER for Thanksgiving Week, 2015
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!
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.
Ginny Rae and Brad
Thank you very much for this great vacation – I enjoyed it very much. I hope we will see you soon on another trip.
Thanks for a great vacation. We enjoyed it very much. We hope to visit you again or on Moen – was great everything!Takket vaere en million

Guests aboard BREANKER in late October, 2015
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!
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.
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….

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!
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 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!!

Guests aboard BREANKER in mid March, 2015
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!
And more from Anderson/Delaneys –
What a great week to share with dear friends from St. Croix, the Colburns, and revisit our old sailing grounds. We have loved every minute. You have made our sail with you on Breanker a memorable one. Thank you and we are likely to join you again.
You have totally spoiled us! This was a fabulous adventure with a perfect mix of sea, sailing and shore. Thank you so very much for being so considerate, caring and thoughtful.

Fabulous hosts. Magnificent views. Delicious meals. Outstanding adventures.
A vacation of a lifetime! Thank you!!
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
We had a trip of a lifetime; Four generations and the perfect hosts.
Boarded a size 6 – departed a size 16…. Fabulous food!

With Peace and gratitude and blessings of health and vital wellness.
Marianne and Kristian you think of every detail – What a delightful trip on the Breanker.
We had a wonderful trip onboard Breanker. The hospitality Marianne and Kristian shared with us will never be forgotten.
Can I say, “Thank you”…. never enough to you both for making our week so special!
The Freeman’s and extended family. (7)
We loved Casador 14 years ago and “it all” – much better on Breanker.
The BVI are a beautiful place to spend some time relaxing, snorkeling and “Yum punching”.
Marianne and Kristian’s hospitality as ever first class and generous.
Another fantastic trip on Breanker! Yummy food and lots of fun.
Can’t wait to do it again! Can’t imagine a better trip…. Food, sun, fun and rum!
