There is no way to put into words how incredible you made our stay on the boat. You guys are a seamless, well-oiled machine that made everything feel effortless (we know how much hard work it is). Your kindness, smiling faces, energy, knowledge of the BVI, just everything. We have been fortunate enough to have experienced a number of charters throughout the Caribbean and you guys were the best!

CAPTAIN SHANE & CHEF/MATE ANNE TAYLOR

Since 2013, Shane and Anne have renamed the Caribbean, their home, and have been chartering exclusively to provide the most luxurious and exquisite sailing vacations. They have traveled the world together as a young married couple, always seeking the next best adventure. They wish to take all that they have learnt from their travels and offer their guests an incomparable yachting experience to always remember.

Captain Shane, born in Cape Town, South Africa, has always surrounded himself by ocean activities such as diving, surfing and of course his number 1 passion, sailing. He began sailing at the age 12 and ever since he completed his Yacht Master license at age 19, he has been on the search for the most prestige sailing destinations. His racing experience allows his guests to feel the true meaning of sailing while sitting back and sipping on one of his freshly created cocktails. Shane, once a hotel Bar Manager, studied Mixology and truly enjoys to share his passion in cocktail making. Entertainment is key to Shane’s life as he loves to create a fun and friendly environment for all of his guests.

Chef Anne grew up in Cape Town too, however she was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
At the age of 5, she moved to South Africa where later on she landed up meeting the love of her life, Shane.
Before deciding to sail the world together, Anne worked in hospitality for the Hilton in Cape Town. During this time she learnt that she preferred to be in the kitchen, so she began her career in cooking. Originally a self taught cook, she has since completed an advanced culinary course including the prestigious Super Yacht Culinary Academy as she aspires to be the best chef she can be. Even though Anne is a vegetarian, her cooking capabilities are limitless. She enjoys a challenge and always tends very well to her guests dietary preferences. Her hobbies include Figure Skating, Hobie Cat sailing and Hiking. Her passion for animals and wild life is inspiring. She doesn’t hesitate to educate her fellow guests on the types of marine and land life you may find during your vacation.

Together, Shane & Anne make a fun and dynamic team who are always eager to please. They make their duties look effortless to allow their guests to enjoy themselves at the most tranquil Epic state possible!
