Where to begin? We came here to celebrate friendship and 50th birthdays and came away with so much more! From the very beginning your easy going and fun personalities combined with your expertise and professionalism made for a wonderful week. Although at 50 we are all feeling a bit under accomplished after listening to all of your incredible adventures. Hanrie, you are a true gourmet: the variety and presentation of every meal was 5 star! Christiaan, your knowledge of every nook and cranny of the BVI makes us all believe you are an actual descendant of Blackbeard himself! We truly hope to see you both again sometime in our near futures!

I could never have imagined how different a vacation can be when there are two caring, talented and wonderful people taking care of us! We are usually the caretakers, however you allowed us to take this time for ourselves.

Christiaan and Hanrie They were fantastic. Energetic, engaging, insightful, accommodating, and polite are a few words that come to mind to describe them. At the end of the day, they helped us have an incredible time. From the suggested stops we made for either a day trip or to anchor for the night, to sharing their knowledge of the islands with us, to helping us arrange a couple of off-boat excursions, they were there to help ensure we had a wonderful experience. Hanrie did an amazing job with our meals! While we didn’t have many restrictions in terms of our meal preferences, every meal was simply amazing; creative, flavorful, artistic, and just really good! I can’t speak more highly about the meals she prepared for us. The Boat “All in all, the accommodations were great. With five couples, I don’t think there was ever a time that any of us felt we were cramped, or as if there wasn’t enough space for all of us. We utilized every water toy on the boat except for the scuba equipment. It was such a bonus to have the kayak, stand up paddle board, wakeboard, water skis, snorkel equipment, etc.; a day didn’t go by without something being used by everyone in our group. It was great to be able to eat all meals as one big group outside so we could enjoy the surroundings. The rooms were comfortable, and it still amazes me today that you can fit a toilet, sink, shower, and a queen/full bed in every room on that boat. Summary We are already talking about returning to the BVI’s as a group, and hope that Christiaan and Hanrie are available to crew our next trip. Christiaan and Hanrie are wonderful people, and we were fortunate to have them crew Yes Dear and provide us with such a memorable experience! All the best!!

CAPTAIN JONATHAN & CHEF/ MATE KATIE

Jonathan found his love for the water and the outdoors as an Eagle Scout growing up in South Carolina. In college he learned to sail in the Charleston Oceanic Sailing Association regattas. After graduating from the University of South Carolina, Jonathan moved to St. Thomas where he became the head bartender at the famous Duffy’s Love Shack and he fell in love with the Virgin Islands and diving. In 2011 he bought a sailboat and became a US Coast Guard licensed captain, spending the next seven years chartering and exploring the Virgin Islands. Jonathan and Katie are excited to share to magic of the Virgin Islands and create new adventures and memories with you aboard S/Y Yes Dear!

Katie is a small town girl with big world experience and is excited to bring her knowledge of food and fun to your vacation! With a background in catering, resort event planning, cafes and organic eateries, Katie has always had a passion for cooking and hosting. Her career brought her to the sunny island of St. Thomas, where she fell in love with the simple, sweet way of island life and met her future love and partner, Captain Jonathan Hardin. Soon after, the opportunity to cook on the water presented itself and she jumped into the world of yachting. As a luxury yacht chef and chief stewardess Katie was able to take her love of food and entertaining to a higher level. With three years of experience running luxury yacht charters throughout the Caribbean, she will amaze you with her incredible food and warm hospitality. They have now joined Yes Dear and can’t wait to show their guests an EPIC vacation of their dreams.
