MIMBAW Crew Profile

William Garnier - Captain/Divemaster and Kim Stoklasa - Chef/Mate

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 Divemaster he delights in 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 her personality. 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 many allergies. She is expert at creating the perfect atmosphere for guests on-board Mimbaw. 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 Mimbaw has to offer, and look forward to welcoming you aboard.

William's guests in June, 2014

To Whom It May Concern: 

In June, 2014 we chartered the sailing vessel, Kibo, a Vision 46 by Bavaria Yachts, for eight (8) days of

bliss in the British Virgin Islands. We were privileged to have in our company as Captain of the boat,

William Garnier. There were five (5) persons in our troupe and we can say, without reservation, that it 

was a privilege and an honor to have this amazing gentleman as Captain! 

William Garnier is a tall, somewhat lanky, handsome fellow of British descent; very well-mannered and 

courteous with a most interesting and apropos sense of humour. His personality is easy ... very

pleasant, at sea or on land. Whether he was teaching myself the fine points of sailing, instructing my 

lovely wife on the basics of piloting the vessel, lending his extensive knowledge of the sea itself in

selecting an anchorage or navigating a following swell, encouraging our guests to participate in the actual

sailing experience or just offering positive reinforcement, not one of us could imagine a better choice for

Captain of the boat! No one in our party felt less than the center of William's attention. 

In very short order, perhaps by the halfway point of our first evening cruise, William became (and very

easily so) one of us. He added a tremendous amount of comfort and confidence to our adventure, and 

we can all say, without reservation, William made our vacation an outstanding success!' He was happy

to expend his endless energy to put each of us at ease in all situations on our journey ... aboard the boat,

in the dingy and the transition to and from, use of the swim ladder and platform, docking, and was 

invaluable for our shore excursions and dinner reservations. William was always available to lend a

hand--regardless of the task. 

We have the utmost respect for William. He has piloted all manner of sailing vessels, from a tiny skiff to

70-foot-plus catamarans. He is a published author and possesses an extensive knowledge of sailing and 

the sea with his life experience including a solo Trans-Atlantic adventure. He is intelligent, articulate, and

exhibited a great understanding of proper etiquette in all situations that arose. We cannot possibly say

enough good things about this young man and it is with utmost delight that we highly recommend William 

Garnier for any and all nautical opportunities. 

Best wishes for fair winds and gentle seas!!

MAY 3-10-14

We travelled on May 3-10, 2014 with our two college age kids on the Catamaran Mimbaw.   Capitan Bastiaan and Chef Jenny were the perfect crew for our family vacation…..Very professional and knowledgeable.   


The boat was fabulous, very clean and organized!  It had all the toys needed for fun everyday!  Paddle boards, snorkels and masks, fishing and scuba gear.  Our kids wanted to learn how to scuba and Bastiaan was a perfect teacher!   


The rooms/bathrooms were perfect in size and very clean.   Every room had several fans that worked great to pull in the summer breeze off the water.  No A/C needed.  


We did as much or as little as you wanted too.   Naps every afternoon on the trampoline were wonderful.   


The food was delicious!   Chef Jenny cooked amazing meals and snacks.   Beautiful tables were set for every meal.    And yummy drinks were served for happy hour every evening to watch the sunset! 


We couldn’t pick a favorite spot.  All the places we stopped were unique and fun!  But the kids would say learning how to scuba was a highlight to the trip!


We had a wonderful and unforgettable time with Bastiaan and Jenny and will definitely do again.  We would recommend to anyone!

overall, food good and presented nicely. marie, the cook, who is lovely and wonderful, was sea sick for 3-4 days which likely hindered her effectiveness. two meals were overcooked and inedible. captain bastiaan is skilled, energetic, thoroughly knowledgeable with his boat and the bvi, and instills confidence that he can get through any situation. additionally, captain bastiaan wants to please, is extremely personable, naturally entertaining, very bright, worldly, logical, and fun to talk with on a vast array of subjects. i might suggest that virgin island sailing call the client just prior to leaving home on the trip with up to date information as to where and how to meet up with the boat. the bvi is a special place to visit especially sailing. highly recommended! good job!

Bastiaan and Richard were amazing! We couldn't have been served any better. We caught a Wahoo on the second day and Bastiaan is a Chef for Chefs. What a special treat and who knew how many ways we could eat it. Catamarn Mimbaw can really throw a party! So much fun and excitement. Thanks to Bastiaan and Richard for a job well done. And Ellen thank you for helping us put it all together. Best Vacation Ever, Chuck and the Asheville crew


Mimbaw May 12...

We loved our vacation, we think it was the best vacation ever.

Captain Bastiaan and Jenny were both awesome! Bastiaan seemed very knowledgeable about the area and sailing in general. They were both extremely friendly and attentive.  I have only glowing positive reports on both. Bastiaan was fun, engaging, intuitive, knowledgeable, interesting and full of life. Jenny was courteous, helpful also interesting, a great cook ,knowledgeable and friendly.

The meals were great! Breakfast was served with cereal, yogurt, fruit, then came the eggs, bacon. We were also served pancakes and locks with bagels...Dinner was great every night, they paid attention to our preferences.

Mimbaw was very clean, the cockpit was comfortable and always had enough shade. They made sure of it with a cover over the trampoline.


We enjoyed Bastiaan’s stories and enthusiasm, Jenny’s food and cooking mined in with a sweet personality.

We found our time very relaxing.

The diving was a lot of fun, the only thing that could of made it better would be if the medical forms were emailed to us earlier, before we arrived on the boat. Bastiaan did a great job while we were in the water.

We would charter this yacht and crew again anywhere in the world!!!

We had an absolutely splendid time. I do not know when my mother was more relaxed. My girlfriend, Judy, even though she had some sea sickness still had a great time. It  truly was a pleasure getting to know Bastiaan and Jenny, two very inspiring people.  Again, honestly it was the best vacation of my life, so far!

Please rate the folllowing:


1 low, 10 high


Pre-charter communication



 always helpful and responded within 24 hours which is NOT common in writing with others in the islands

Accuracy of yacht description



Great - just like the photos

Cleanliness of the yacht



Very Clean

Comfort of the yacht



Very Comfortable




Jennie, the first mate, did a great job of preparing food. She also was really into plating and really catering to our group. I would recommend perhaps more bbq - we had hamburgers one day and Jennie grilled them to perfection. That would be my only comment - more grill!




Jennie and Bastiaan both made amazing drinks - bloody mary’s, pina coladas, frozen mojitos, you name it. It was great.

Crew friendliness and professionalism



They were very proud of their work - Bastiaan with his toys and adventures and surprises and Jennie with her beautiful food and plating. They definitely went above and beyond.

Crew competence



They were so competent on the sea. We felt very safe and always like we were in good hands.

Overall experience





I would recommend this yacht for:


Romantic Getaway                        Families                        Party Week                         Couples Retreat


Honestly, I feel that Bastiaan is very professional and is an amazing host. He will take you out all night long if you wanted or he will set up a romantic private dinner on the beach for you. He will cater to whatever type of vacation you want. It sounded like they do a bit of everything and they are so relaxed and laid back that they can cater.

Were the sailing area and conditions suitable for this yacht?


Perfect - we were first timers and I would stress to Late Sail to encourage people to hit the BVIs over other islands for their first time. I am usually pretty extreme about my travel spots and I like to go to spots less traveled. I did not want to do the BVIs and wanted to something else like Antigua but honestly the BVIs were perfect. There were no long sails which was great because one person ended up having a little sea sickness. Honestly, longer sails at some of the other islands would’ve

been too much for everyone. We stopped at 14 different places and it was great to be able to jump around to a lot of little islands, bars, and snorkel spots.


Was this yacht a good fit for you and your crew?


Bastiaan is AMAZING. His stories and life is so interesting and we really got a long. He seemed like he was born to do sailing and yacht charters. We are an internationally minded group so we just loved Bastiaan and his background. We also loved Jennie’s Aussie spirit. They were just a PERFECT fit for us.


What did you like best about your charter?


Hands down - the crew. Bastiaan was so funny, warm, and welcoming - such an interesting character with an interesting history. He was so laid back about his boat, his toys, and we really felt like home. Jennie was also fantastic. They were great hosts and had fun friends. Their other friends worked super yachts and took us on some amazing boat tours. Now we want to go yachting - ha!


The food and drink and service was fantastic. Honestly we were a bit nervous since we are all foodies and cocktail fans from New York. We forgot our cocktail set and Bastiaan had everything we needed! It was impressive. Jennie cooked fabulous meals too.


What did you like least about your charter?


Honestly - there was nothing that I liked least - maybe the occasional cloudy weather, the harsh reality of grey New York post charter, etc.


Would you charter this yacht again and/or recommend it to others?


I would definitely charter this yacht again for Bastiaan, Jennie, and all their amazing toys. It was so fun and we have joked about doing my bachelorette party on the boat.
