Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for INVICTUS
Captain: William Garnier

William was born into a family of naval tradition and was taken to sea before he could see over the steering wheel. This early introduction to sailing meant a career on the high seas was always likely, and so it has proved as he gained RYA Yachtmaster accreditation and has skippered boats in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Kite-boarding, diving, kayaking, windsurfing, surfing are just a few of the activities William enjoys. A sailing trip solo around the Atlantic in a rather small boat is testament to his adventurous spirit. You can ask him about that or just read the book he wrote! His love of the sea is infectious and you will enjoy catching his relaxed island vibe.

He loves to share his knowledge of the lesser known anchorages, private coves, and secluded beaches and will take you to visit and explore all the unique locations the Caribbean has to offer. As a PADI Dive Instructor he delights in certifying new divers, giving instruction and leading explorations into the tranquil underwater world of stunning reefs and wrecks.

Creative and fun-loving by nature, Kim's skills in the galley reflect herpersonality. She delights in mixing healthy fresh local produce with international dishes learnt from a life well travelled. On top of her German Baccalaureate, Kim has training in all aspects of food safety, hygiene and manyallergies. She is expert at creating the perfect atmosphere for guests on-board Invictus. Naturally at ease with people, Kim has managed high-end private and corporate events in cosmopolitan London, and worked with people of all ages as a sports instructor and animal behaviourist. Clearly not one to be type-cast, Kim is qualified on powerboats and can be relied upon to drive the dinghy for wake-boarding, and is always on-hand to capture all your special vacation moments on film.

Easy going and thoughtful, William and Kim encourage every guest to make full use of all Invictus has to offer, and look forward to welcoming you aboard.

Dear William and Kim

My dream vacation came true. I had no idea we would have such amazing food + free diving experience + feel like we are on a new floating home + act so silly + enjoy the company of William and Kim (as we've made two new friends in just 7 short days) I can't thank you enough - Bucket List ticked

Arron and Leola - Maine

William and Kim

Where do I begin? This vacation exceeded our every expectation in every way imaginable. From Kim's UNBELIEVABLE cooking to the the teaching of new "Dance Moves" to William's vast sailing knowledge and great stories. Most of all the wonderful memories that you both helped create and that will never be forgotten.A million thank yous for a vacation of a lifetime!

Love, Pat and Kelly, Connecticut XO

William and Kim

It is less exciting to wake up in Wisconsin to 14 degrees, snow and ice than to daybreak on Invictus in the BVI.No words can express the gratitude we feel toward the experience you delivered. You are an amazing team that work seamlessly together.It really exceeded our expectations every step of the way. Again , a sincere appreciation for everything you did for us. It was truly a memorable experience that we will cherish forever.

Kim, Dave and Max

Rare is the opportunity where one is able to interact to intimately with their crew when by the end you feel you have widened your circle of friends. William and Kim were the consummate hosts, tremendously professional and clearly capable. Their intelligence and knowledge in a vast array of areas made conversations delightful. We've learned so many new skills - from kiteboarding to finding the nirvana in free diving and were inspired by William to look into building our own wooden boat! In addition to Kim's numerous talents, obvious of which are the culinary - she often accompanied us on a number of hikes and showed us hidden gems to photograph. This exceptional team put together an unforgettable and memorable trip for us which we will fondly look back upon for many years to come.

William and Kim

Thank you so much for an amazing trip! We would have never believed before we came aboard how wonderful both the journey and the crew would be. We are particularly grateful for how kind and caring you have been for Lexi and Nate - we will hear often from them how much they miss you and "can we do it again?" From amazing meals to amazing views to finding lost gold on Treasure Island, the trip was even better than what we expected (and we expected a lot). Thank you Captain William for being so kind, yet strong. I felt perfectly safe at all times with you (even with a Barracuda). You were wonderful with my kids. Thank you Kim for just being amazing! You are fun, smart, kind, gentle and giving. I wish you two every happiness, warm seas and gentle breezes - and write that book!

Pam, Geoff, Lexi, Nate and Marilyn. (Ages 85-6 years old)

Dear William and Kim!

Thank you for a special vacation that we will never forget. We had the time of our lives. You made us feel welcome and comfortable from the first moment we came onboard. Blissful sails, fascinating snorkelling, toys for all - from the SubWing and the ZUP to the paddle board - all prepped and ready with the dinghy at a moments notice, beautifully presented and super delicious meals- we are so grateful for the innumerable ways you took care of us. And all the while it was such a pleasure to spend time with you and get to know such interesting, funny, smart and all around lovely people. There could be no better hosts in all of the Caribbean. 

Thank you again!Jessica, 

Bertrand, Luc, Alex and Claire.

I wish words could say how far all of our expectations were exceeded. To say Kim and William were amazing is an huge understatement. Every day was a new adventure. They catered everything to our wants and needs - from the amazing food to the water toys - it was all simply perfect! I sincerely hope Kim and William understand how grateful we are for the greatest vacation we have ever dreamed of. I can assure you - we will be back!

Thank you so much

Mark, Diane, Beth and Tommy

And -

I truly wish there was a way I could articulate how amazing this vessel and crew are. William and Kim scheduled every day to exactly our interests. We had a group of 4 and 2 are vegetarians. Kim catered every meal to fit in everyone's taste and preferences. I can only say if someone is chartering a catamaran in the USVI and BVI please don't hesitate to make the greatest decision you will every make toward a vacation-BOOK THIS CREW!

Kim and William are masters of the Art of Relaxation and Fun. Thanks to their professionalism and knowledge our week on INVICTUS was one of the most enjoyable vacations, definitely one we will remember – and recommend! The food - Oh the food was delightful and so healthy. The spots they picked were always picturesque – and simply perfect. And we always felt safe on the boat – which made the experience an even better one. 

Thank you Kim and William!

Besitos, Silvana & Daniel

P.S. Snorkeling, Diving, Fishing, we did it all!

And a follow up e-mail from Daniel

Dear William and Kim, 

Thank you very much for your mail. We had the very best time on INVICTUS, thanks to both of you. Snorkeling, diving, fishing, swimming, hiking, playing with water toys, and the food (fantastic chef, unforgettable experience) and wine selection. It is probably one of the best trips we have ever done, if not the best! Captain of the boat was incredible, always knew where to go. Thank you both very much, best regards, Daniel

We could not have had a more relaxing or enjoyable week aboard INVICTUS. It seemed as though nothing was too much trouble for William or Kim. William was the most capable skipper and very knowledgeable about the area and activities we might care to do – snorkeling, exploring caves, etc. Kim took great care of making sure the boat was in perfect condition and prepared the most delicious meals – all beautifully presented. They were both excellent company and we could not have wished for a happier holiday. With best wishes and many many thanks.Graham, Susan, Thomas, Katharine and Mary
