Your Crew


Matt is a USCG licensed Captain with nearly two decades of professional experience in sailing and motor yachts up to 114ft. on the Atlantic & Pacific, throughout the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean Sea. He has sailed over 65,000 nautical miles, crossed the Atlantic twice, raced in over 25 major regattas, and lived aboard his yachts in the US Virgin Islands since 2003. Originally from Massachusetts, Matt’s family traces their lineage back to the Mayflower and has strong generational maritime ties in New England. He grew up spending summers on Cape Cod, where he learned to sail from a young age aboard his family’s boats.

In his early years in the Virgin Islands, Matt broadened his nautical knowledge base by working in a shipyard, and subsequently a sail-loft. He has lived in and around National Parks most of his life, has a background in wilderness search & rescue and emergency medicine, worked as a ski instructor at Vail Resorts, and more recently as a free-diving guide and naturalist in the US Virgin Islands National Park. He attended university with a focus on Japanese ceramics and bronze casting and holds a black belt in traditional Tae Kwon-Do.

Tmana is a talented professional chef who originally hails from the coast of Maine where her family has a thriving New England seafood catering business. She draws diverse culinary inspiration from her travels abroad in Europe, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean, not to mention her New England roots. Tmana truly enjoys providing exceptional and inventive cuisine to all who find a seat at her table and has a penchant for creating pastries, desserts, and baked goods.

An accomplished sailor in her own right, Tmana has sailed over 5,000 nautical miles including several offshore multi-day passages in water over 25,000ft. deep. Matt & Tmana were married in the Virgin Islands on their adopted island home of St. John in 2015. They honeymooned by sailing from Florida to the Virgin Islands on a 6-month cruise through the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and the Spanish Virgin Islands.

Together, Matt & Tmana have sailed thousands of miles and genuinely love creating new and memorable experiences for their guests through their shared passions for nature, yachting, travel, and cuisine.

Beyond Expectations

This was our first family vacation, on a sailing yacht. The crew were so wonderful from day 1! We learned so much about hikes off the islands, sailing, swimming holes, best food spots, and so much more. This was an amazing experience of a lifetime within the beautiful Virgin Islands. Hospitality was beyond expectations and hope to do another sooner rather than later! We loved every day and our kids couldn't have enjoyed it anymore than they did! Thank you many times over!

Perfect Start To 2022

We had a great week on Cest La Vie. The boat is clean and comfortable, we enjoyed the outdoor lounge spaces and the convenience of electric heads, water maker and AC! Water toys were so much fun. The crew make a great team and are a pleasure to have as a crew. We enjoyed spending time together and learning about each other’s backgrounds. They picked great spots for scenic views, snorkeling and hiking! We even got to do some bird watching. We felt very comforted knowing we are in good hands under sails or on the anchor. The chef went above and beyond to accommodate our food and wine preferences. The meals were well planned and delicious! Stuffed French toast, empanadas and burgers were kid’s favorites, adults also enjoyed chicken curry and special egg rolls. Home-made desert with every dinner was an unexpected treat! It was a perfect start for 2022 and we hope to sail again soon!

Fantastic Time

Thank you so very much for everything you did for us and our family! We had a fantastic time. You provided us with a total island experience. This has been an incredible week! We've loved everything. Your knowledge of the islands, the best snorkeling spots ever made this such a complete vacation. You are both so genuine and accommodating to all of our varied wants and needs. We feel like we did it all - and loved it ever more than I imagined. Your meals were delicious and it was obvious that they were prepared with love! You are a wonderful chef...we will miss you. Hope to come back next year!!
