Chartering in the Bahamas and the Caribbean


Operating in the Bahamas and the Caribbean

Why choose just one island when you can explore as many as your heart desires? There is no better way to vacation in the islands than by boat and there is no better choice than with the luxurious sailing catamaran, Serenity Now. Add a very energetic and popular and talented crew, and the journey is guaranteed to be unforgettable.

Serenity Now, a 62' Lagoon, has a very spacious open layout with wonderfully expansive decks for enjoying the gorgeous turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Large windows allow plenty of natural light in the interior as well as amazing views. She accommodates 8 guests in 4 luxurious, well-designed cabins, 3 queens and 1 twin. The master suite features a walk-around bed with private sitting area and direct access to the cockpit.  For families with a small child, the sitting area can be converted to a single berth. Guest cabins have side access to beds, baths with separate showers, plenty of natural light, and storage space.

The aft deck offers a spacious lounge area and outdoor dining with magnificent views. From the aft deck there is easy access to the water via the wide steps on each pontoon. The foredeck with its two large trampolines is a favorite area for sunbathing and lounging while under sail. The expansive fly bridge is yet another wonderful spot to take in the spectacular scenery with a hard top bimini providing shade from the sun.

Serenity Now has two crew on board, ensuring excellent service for guests. Captain Bret Van Roden and award-winning Chef Mallory Patterson, known for her fabulous culinary skills, as well as her fun-loving, outgoing personality. The crew have been drawing excellent reviews from guests for their great energy, fun welcoming personalities, and always doing everything possible to ensure an unforgettable vacation.  Bret, who seems to naturally excel at all water sports, also loves to teach guests – both young and old how to enjoy all the fun water toys on board.  This crew is ready to deliver the vacation of your dreams.

Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for SERENITY NOW
Captain: Bret Van Roden (34)
Captain: Bret Van Roden

Captain Bret is a seasoned sailor after circumnavigating the world on his 41 ft Ketch, Broken Compass. Following a career in Finance and Economics after landing his degree from James Madison University, Bret, his twin brother, and their Siberian Husky, Makai, notably double handed across the Pacific without an auxiliary engine or autopilot.

After crossing the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans and three and a half years of exploring the world and developing a love for fishing and the Ocean, the two brothers founded Broken Compass, LLC, a fishing and tackle company.

As a licensed Captain, Yacht master Offshore, PADI Diving Instructor, AIDA 3 free diver, a professional fisherman, and natural Mariner, Bret displays his years of sea experience guiding guests around the Caribbean aboard S/Y Serenity Now.

Chef/Steward: Mallory Patterson (30)
Chef/Steward: Mallory Patterson

Chef Mallory Patterson brings an extraordinary cooking ability as well as a delightful energy to the crew of Serenity Now. She grew up on Lake Huron in Michigan and spent her childhood Sailing the Great Lakes, waterskiing, power boating and an array of other water activities.

After earning her degree in hotel and restaurant management from Johnson and Wales University, she went on to manage several different hotels and restaurants before she made her transition to the yachting industry. Today she has raised the bar for outstanding cuisine in the charter yacht market. In her words, “I love it because I am now able to do all of my favorite things, cook, travel, and sail.”

Mallory is also a Yacht Master, PADI Rescue Diver, and AIDA 2 Freediver, diving down to 80 feet.

At the 2014 Newport Charter Yacht Show Culinary Competition, Mallory knocked it out of the park, winning both the Healthy Beverage and Sunset Canapé challenges.

Mallory somehow delivers a never-ending cavalcade of delicious, new recipes inspired by the freshest, local ingredients. Her meals have been a constant source of universal delight to a long list of discriminating guests and clients. She has exceeded the culinary standards set before her by chefs from some of the best restaurants in New York. Despite her extraordinary cooking ability, Mallory's personality may be her most impressive quality. She gets along with everyone and is a lovely and positive addition to social life aboard.


This luxury catamaran accommodates 8 guests in 4 queen cabins. Each cabin has an individual shower, head, A/C control, and TV. The master suite is oversized with extra storage, twin sinks, and private entry.

Broker's Lunch at the BVI Boat show, November 8th 2017

I would be so grateful if you would extend my thanks and appreciation to Bret and Mallory aboard SERENITY NOW for the lovely broker lunch they served at the BVI Charter show.

The meal was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Bret and Mallory are a sweet couple, and they keep the cat in excellent condition.


April 2017 Charter ~ Note from the Broker

I just got off the phone with the charterers who sang your praises so nicely I got goose bumps! They called on speaker phone to tell me what a truly wonderful experience it was.

The best vacation, wonderful experience, educational,awesome, the itinerary, the diving - Bret you are an excellent dive instructor,Mallory you cooking was amazing and a true culinary experience. Amanda how nice you are and your always friendly smile, so pleasant and how you wouldn’t let them lift a finger... How nice the boat was.

Mrs. said there were tears and hugs at the end and the only negative comment they had was that they are now fully depressed being off the boat.

January 2017 - Group taking scuba lessons on Serenity Now!

What a  wonderful time!

June 24 - July 15, 2016 – 3 weeks of Diving!

We were THRILLED with the charter, the best one ever! We LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!

Kind regards, Mr. K.

June 9-13, 2016 ~ Bahamas Family Charter

We had a wonderful time! The crew were great with the kids, and I am hoping to re-book them in the future on the same boat.

I continue to put the yacht forward and think it’s a fantastic option for families.

Mr. D.

April 12-15, 2016 ~ Bahamas ~ Tandem with Power Yacht Seaglass
Great trip!
The crews were top notch. They worked well together and all very accommodating.
We used a charter service, "fly the whale" for the transport to Staniel. The sea plane made it so easy.
Thanks so much for all the help!


We all came on this trip with the same idea: to relax with our spouses and each other in this beautiful part of the world. We had no idea what to expect from the boat, the crew, the weather, etc. We could not have predicted how profoundly you (Bret, Mallory, Susie) have affected all of us this week and how grateful we are for the tremendous effort, talent, skill, and care you have given us. YOU have made this trip what we all wanted it to be and we could not have enjoyed it more. We all look forward to many more trips, as long as you all will be there.

Bret, Mallory & Steven – We have had the BEST time on board Serenity Now and can’t thank you enough for your hospitality. Some of the great memories we’ll take home with us: Hikes, paddle boarding, poker, GoPro extreme, tubing, kayaking, water skiing, eating Mallory’s yummy bread, spelling bees with the captain, sea scooter snorkeling, hot buttered rum candles, Thanksgiving dinner aboard the Tell Star, melon/cucumber sunscreen, jumping off the boat, sandbars, catching giant nurse sharks, so many amazing meals by Mallory, blow holes, Capt. Bret and his fearless sailing and his sixth sense of the weather. We are thankful for all of you. Xoxo Thank you.
Happy Thanksgiving 2015!
 BVI 2015
Mallory, Chad, and Bret,
We had a fantastic week aboard the Serenity Now. I have to say it was the most adventurous vacation ever. Between swimming & scuba with the sharks and hiking through mangroves, we managed to still have time to relax with the iguanas and drink the wine! We can’t wait to hopefully see you all again next year.

23-28 May, Abacos Islands Bahamas

Note from broker:

The guests had a fantastic time on board Serenity Now. They said Mallory was amazing and they wanted to take her home with them. Thank you so much!

Guest poems:

I left my job, my duties, and my salary

To have a week of the most incredible food

All prepared by the beautiful Mallory.

I left my jeans, my make up, my jewelry and hair stylist

So I could be guided by the magnificent Tyler.

I left my apartment, my routine, my kids and my dad

So I could sail for a while with Captain Chad.

You made this vacation wonderful, never took us astray

Except for that one day stranded in Hatchet Bay.

But in all seriousness, from the bottom of my heart

Tell Star is amazing, the Bahamas are beautiful

Yet Mallory, Tyler, and Chad are the very best part!!!

Thank you,


Floating, sidelong glance at the

Joyous fiery sunrise passed

The hell hole of Hatchet Bay

We dream infinite leisure, sharks no

Matter, Chad and Tyler manage the sea

And our lofty expectations simultaneously

Whilst Mallory plies us with pure

Loving gastronomy & immaculate joy!

Mario & Susie

I eat all over the world, but I am never quite as happy as when I am basking on the Serenity Now with Chef Mallory in charge of all things delicious. Chef Mal makes healthy tasty sexy food that makes the Serenity Now and her kitchen one of my fave destinations in the world, wherever it floats ….. as often as I can be there, I am there.

Wow!  What an incredible experience this week!  The Serenity Now crew made our 25th anniversary party unforgettable.  The food, the water sports, the scenery, and the hospitality were far beyond our hopes and expectations.  Thank you for such a fun time!  We hope our paths cross again.  Steve and Mary-Kay
It's hard to articulate our experience except to say perfect location, perfect yacht and most importantly perfect crew.  Chad, Mallory and Tyler are so pleasant and so organized. They anticipated all of our needs and treated us better than any resort.  We'll always remember our 25th anniversary in the BVI.  The experiences and awesome food and drinks will fuel our stories to others for years.  Thank you guys! Becky and Marty.
Feedback to broker:
Our trip couldn't have been any more fabulous. The crew made it more than special and we feel like we've made new friends!!! Their professionalism, knowledge, hospitality, and the amazing culinary expertise of Mallory were unsurpassed. And, of course ... the fun factor!!! Thank you for turning around a not so good situation and making it such a memorable and wonderful time for us! I will not hesitate to recommend my friends to you but bear in mind that they will want to sail with Serenity Now!!!”
Xmas 2014 BVI
Excerpts from letter written to boat owner:
“I have two sons, 19 and 17. I wanted them to have a great time with tons of activities. I read about Chad, Tyler and Mallory and loved your boat so this seemed like a good fit. It was beyond my optimism. You have real live jewels with these guys! My son and Chad caught fish that was on the table an hour later prepared by Tyler. When we were in Anegada, Tyler brought delicious spiny lobster for dinner. He worked so hard, plus entertaining us. Chad is the consummate Captain. Very dedicated, and available for us to enjoy all of his ideas, vast travel experience and take us on water activities.
You know these men well, but I am so pleased that I want you to hear just how great they are on board. Of course, they are both darling…as well as intelligent, educated and full of ideas. We are a very social threesome and they joined in with us. As a mom, I loved their participation because I was able to have some down time to myself.
Your boat was new, immaculate and sophisticated. We all thought it was the nicest one we had ever chartered. Thank you for making available the ‘the best trip ever.’ We did not want to leave!”  Marcie

Broker Comments May 2014 Charter
"When I spoke with my client he was still in vacation mode.  He said they had such a fabulous time that it is hard to get back in the "work' mode.  He sent me photos that the crew took and it seems like everyone was having fun!  Dancing on the beach kept them entertained.  They are happy with the trip and don't be surprised if they come back!
I can tell you they are all still basking in happiness!"

9th Anniversary Charter
Chad and Tyler's love of life and adventure is infectious and their epic experiences from around the world are positively inspiring. They were up for everything we desired and showed us plenty of phenomenal scenery and activities along the way, including teaching us an awesomely addictive beach game. Kayaking, snorkeling, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, paddle boarding, sailing - you name it, we did it - sometimes in combination! They are avid fisherman, so chances are high you'll savor some freshly caught seafood deliciously prepared by Ty.
Chad makes the best painkiller in the islands and a pretty mean margarita to boot, so watch out or you might end up jumping off the roof of Willie T's! We enjoyed swapping stories, relaxing, and most especially remembering what's truly significant in life.
We cannot thank these extraordinary brothers enough for making our 9th anniversary a genuinely incredible experience and we look forward to sharing adventures together again soon.
