CAPTAIN TONY & CHEF/HOSTESS KATE
Tony is one of the most experienced yachtsmen in the BVI. With his friendly charm and adventurous spirit, you are sure to love Tony. A native of the UK, he took up sailing as a young boy. After school he became Sales Engineer and then obtained a Masters Degree in Primary Education. But, the sea was calling him. Kate and Tony left the UK in 1997 on their 70 year old classic 32 foot wooden yacht from the UK, via France, Africa & South America to the Caribbean. They have a successful career in chartering yachts and estate management.
Kate welcomes you aboard Xenia 74 with world class cuisine and a welcoming personality. She has been dazzling guests with her food and hostess skills since her and Tony began in the BVI. She has been in the food industry since 1984 and was the manager for a small food retail chain throughout the railway stations of London. She has attended culinary courses in France, where her and Tony have a home. No one knows food like the French! She has expanded her skills and knowledge over time and has even made an appearance on a local BVI tv show called “Gourmet Galley with Chef Lisa”. Kate & Tony have the experience and skills to make your charter the vacation of a lifetime.
FIRST MATE/DECKHAND NICO
Born and raised in the southern tip of Africa, I spent many a holiday on safari with my family where my love for the outdoors has grown deeper with every trip. But even in these early days the attraction of water was strong, and I ended up pursuing that as an open water swimmer. After school the oceans started calling and I soon realized where my true passion lay. I started my journey of yacht training and diving courses. I worked for a time on The Sustainable Seas Trust vessel, Boaz. This enabled me to accumulate not only invaluable experience but also notch up some sea miles. Following this an opportunity opened up for me working for a fleet of large charter catamarans in the fascinating country of Turkey. Today, learning not only yachtmanship but the skills required in the hospitality industry.
I am a now a qualified RYA Offshore skipper and also an enthusiastic PADI Dive Master. Enjoying every moment above and below the waves I am now starting a new adventure with Xenia 74 and living my dream in the Caribbean. I cannot wait to share the wonders of the BVI and the reefs with our guests.
Terri-Lynne grew up in a small family restaurant on the Eastern coast of South Africa where she had the opportunity to go fishing and diving, walk the beaches and enjoy the splendor of the sea.
This is where her passion for the ocean and nature was born and eventually lead her to study for a BSc (Hons) degree in Environmental Sciences. She is a firm believer of sustainability and the need to care for the environment leaving as small a footprint as she can wherever she treads. Exploring new places and cultures, discovering new creatures and plants and tasting new foods and dishes has always interested her.
Working on a yacht in the ocean is the perfect starting point for a career, close to the environment she loves, but where she can work barefoot and not be confined to a desk in an office. It also gives her the opportunity to use the hospitality skills she learnt alongside her family. She enjoys the satisfaction of a job well done by hosting and helping others.
An introverted extrovert she enjoys socializing but equally, likes the quiet calm whilst snorkeling and diving, where the only thing disturbing the peace is the sound of bubbles.
She is always looking forward to meeting and taking care of Xenia 74’s guests!

Thank you for a fantastic week in the BVIs. This has become one of our family’s favorite places and this trip was by far our favorite. We will never forget our morning swims, fun drinks, wonderful food & amazing sailing! This week has far exceeded any expectations because of you all. Looking forward to our next adventure with Xenia 74! Dear Crew! Thank you for a great week! This is my happy place... even more with all of you! Thank you for a perfect week!!
Neither the climate not the location makes the trip, it was the crew, and they were all primo! BDG Three generations together for a fantastic adventure in the BVIs! On a boat! We had some rain and plenty of sun and a little bit of wind - altogether an interesting and fun mix that gave us a little bit of everything. The snorkeling was most excellent and included a face to face with one angry Barracuda. The food was exceptional – every last meal was pure perfection, and the chef is a culinary genius. I don’t think we knew what to expect, but the captain and crew of the Xenia 74 made this week a magical and special vacation.
From all of us – thank you. With love.
Dear Milo, thank you for not catching us. The Fishes of the BVI.
Highlights of this wonderful trip included: long, beautiful sailing sessions, drinks at Foxy’s, three action packed and eye popping dives (including the Willy T wreck!), an infinite supply of painkillers, dirty shirleys and vodka : ), INCREDIBLE COOKING, the chef’s cooking (again), snorkeling and swimming in the rain, pure unadulterated relaxation, private island parties, and a wonderful, wonderful Christmas!! Thank you! Thank you for giving us such an exceptional week in the BVIs. You are all wonderful, friendly people, and we have loved getting to know you. This has been a very memorable trip (see highlights above!) and our love for boating in the BVIs continues to grow – thanks to you!
Best wishes, Tom, Deban, James, Peter and Gwendolyn
The ABSOLUTELY BEST CATAMARAN CHARTER EXPERIENCE IN THE CARIBBEAN.
We were four couples celebrating important wedding anniversaries and wanted the best. The Xenia 74 boat, accommodations, crew, meal service and sailing experiences EXCEEDED all expectations as we spent the week recently sailing among the British Virgin Islands. The Xenia 74 is 74.5 feet long catamaran with a handsome and magnificent master bedroom and three other bedrooms all with top notch out fittings and superb air conditioning. The captain with 20 years of experience provided smooth sailing and excellent access to snorkeling, scuba and beach combing sites. The chef, in our unanimous opinion, is the BEST in the Caribbean. From elegant omelets and fresh made croissants in the morning to wonderful salads for lunch and perfectly cooked to preferences fish, chicken, lamb chops and steak at dinner we were blown away by her preparations. Did we mention the fluffy pancakes, the decedent French Toast or what she does with balsamic glacé? Desserts were also superb. Her chocolate raspberry cake has to be the best in the Western Hemisphere. We did stop one day for an on shore lunch at Cooper Island for local lunch and ice cream. Go a bit before noon to get your orders in and proper choice of tables before hoards arrive. We brought along a case of our favorite wines which were amply fortified by the Xenia 74 inventory of American and French wines.There is an extensive variety and supply of various liquors on board. Additional crew members provided superb support and added tremendously to our wonderful experience. This was a marvelous once in a lifetime wish made perfect by this handsome boat and superb crew.
Booking on any lesser boat would be a shame and missed opportunity for perfection. We should have booked for two weeks!
The Yacht was first class. Very clean and organized. Cabins were all very nice size especially the master. Cockpit and dining area were spacious and provided us all the shade we needed as there was a lot of sun! We loved the underwater scooters and just snorkeled every chance we had at each place we docked. The boys also enjoyed water skiing, wakeboarding and tubing and some of the areas they found were smooth as glass. The chef followed the Pref sheets to a "T". She knew what every of us liked (and disliked) and was perfect each meal. We told her she needs to publish her cookbook as each meal was Gourmet, colorful and so tasty. FIVE star all the way! We were very lucky to get this crew and they were all perfect in their roles and they worked so hard to make sure we were comfortable and had all we needed always. We really enjoyed everyone. Could have stayed for another week! We determined the pace and they served us each day what WE wanted. We just went ashore a few times as we just loved the boat and the water but the places we went too were very picturesque. We loved it and would recommend this to anyone. We are very well traveled and this was by far our best vacation.
We are out of words to express what a wonderful charter you put us in. Never before have we had 17 exquisite meals in a row. What an accomplishment! The boat has a beautiful teak interior and is kept in mint condition. Activities were numerous and fun for both generations in our family. Each of us has voted for their individual preference: Flexibility in schedule (Vanessa) The anchoring locations (Maria) The views (Ana) The sailing part and helping with the sails and anchor (Nick) The Soggy Dollar (Olivier) Water skiing and hiking in Salt Point (Helena) Kit surfing and the Bitter End (Phil) Seeing the entire family so very happy (Jose) Thanks for creating these memorable moments for all of us We wish you the very best from all of us.
Being boaters and loving the water, we dreamed of a caribbean adventure in the British Virgin Islands to celebrate our beloved husband and fathers 70th Birthday. Our dreams came true on the sleek, elegant, relaxed and secure Xenia catamaran. The Yacht, salon and staterooms far exceeded our expectations and were more like you would find on a boutique cruise ship, linens and amenities superior. the lustrous teakwood thorough out glowed with a honey hue, rich and warm, as were the crew. Gareth the perfect host and admirable and steadfast captain, keeping us in calm and silky azure waters and picturesque beaches and ports, no cruise ships in sight. Kristine, the consummate hostess and chef, created epicurean delights from scratch with just the right fusion of sweet and savory, perfect medley of nutrition and flavor. The table was set elegantly each night with an array of colors and designs. We expected a great trip but they both went above and beyond even taking underwater pictures of the family with colorful sea life making our experience a Magical Trip of a Lifetime.
Thank you all so much for an absolutely wonderful week. The food was AMAZING and the hospitality so welcoming. Thank you for putting up with our antics, our very large appetites and late night dance parties. This has been the best way to ring in the New Year & we are all leaving feeling rejuvenated and maybe just a few pounds heavier:) Thank you for everything!
Thank you all for a fantastic week! Every minute was a perfect and exactly what we needed. We are going home with big smiles, well rested and huge tummies. Best of luck to all of you, happy holidays and hope to see you again soon.
Really, there are no words to describe how amazing this vacation was. One of our very best ones ever! You made us feel like friends, not just guests & crew. In that spirit we INSIST that you visit us in California so we can wine & dine you and take you fishing on our boat! There is a yellow fin Tuna or Dorado with your name on it!
