Your Crew

CAPTAIN ANDREW & CHEF/MATE MICHAELA

Captain Andrew and Chef Michaela have been working on charters as Captain & Crew for more than 5 years, exploring every part of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. They spread their passion for sailing, snorkeling, and all-around adventuring to guests from all over the world, and Andrew and Michaela are thrilled to share their passions and all the amazing things the Virgin Islands have to offer with the guest aboard Gracious.

Andrew was a late bloomer to the world of sailing, growing up in suburban Chicago, but he knew his passion for the ocean was there from an early age. After moving to San Diego for college, he immediately took sailing lessons upon his arrival. Starting off in boats hardly bigger than himself, his passion for the ocean continued to grow as rapidly as his sailing experience in and around southern California. Upon graduation from San Diego State with a degree in hospitality and tourism, Andrew decided to focus on sailing, becoming a U.S. Sailing Certified Instructor and spending his time teaching sailors the wonders of the ocean. A quick return to the Midwest, and cold Chicago winters, ended with Andrew getting his USCG Master Captain’s license, and a move to “Down Island” to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time Captain. Now, he continues chasing his dream and sharing his love for the ocean with all of his guests.

Born and raised in the Virgin Islands, Michaela spent her childhood working at her father’s dive shop on St. John. Her formative years were spent scuba diving, sailing, and snorkeling; she considers herself a professional mermaid. In addition to receiving a degree in Business Management from Five Towns College in New York, she established four years of experience in the service industry. Michaela found her talent for connecting with people while representing and promoting big-name brands at events in and around New York City. After four years, she was drawn back home to the water and has dedicated the last five years to the charter business. Michaela is a professionally trained chef, and Gracious guests will be wowed at every meal. We focus on local ingredients and favorites from around the world. When you dine on Gracious, you will experience a truly unique sailing experience with a native of the Virgin Islands.

STEWARDESS/MATE CAROLINE

Caroline grew up on the picturesque shores of Massachusetts, developing her love for the ocean as early as she can remember. As a child, most of her memories were made on her family’s sailboat and on the beach. After receiving her degree from Bridgewater State University, Caroline’s wanderlust took over and her passion for traveling began. For many years she worked seasonal jobs; winters spent working day charters in the Caribbean and summers working in the fishing industry in Alaska. Caroline decided to retire from the cold weather, to live, work, and sail full-time in the Virgin Islands. In addition to sailing, Caroline’s other great passion in life is Yoga. She received her teaching certification in Thailand in 2018 and has been teaching ever since. She is thrilled to offer yoga classes onboard Gracious, creating a unique experience. As your tour guide, Caroline loves to immerse you in the natural beauty of the islands and share her love of exploring nature

PRIVATE TENDER “GOODNESS”

Goodness is a 40’ Vanquish Center Console designed to enhance your experience in the Virgin Islands. When chartering Gracious you will get access to Goodness during your charter. Goodness is great for transporting you to and from Gracious if you want to start your charter in the BVI. Fly into STT, take our private transportation to Red Hook to meet Goodness, and you will be at BVI customs within 30 minutes and begin your fun in the BVI’s the day you arrive. The same holds true for your departure day. Goodness will meet you in the BVI’s and pick you up from Gracious, take you to customs, and have you back to STT in plenty of time to make your flight. Using Goodness this way will give you a full extra day in the BVI’s. She is also perfect to jump on and see additional locations that you won’t see on a normal 7-day charter. She can take you on snorkeling trips to places a 60 ft catamaran can’t/don’t go. She can pick you up and take you to lunch or dinner on islands or locations you may not see otherwise. This allows you to enjoy the locations you choose to stop on Gracious and not have to rush every day to a new location. See More, Do More, in Luxury.

Goodness is the most luxurious Center Console in the Virgin Islands. The Vanquish 40 is a preferred tender for Super Yachts. Goodness is a 2022 and comes with all the bells and whistles. She can accommodate 12 passengers, has seating designed for riding, lounging, and entertaining. She has been equipped with a Refrigerator, Ice Maker, and Bar. Goodness has an Air Conditioned bathroom and stateroom. If you need out of the sun for a few minutes or just a place to change out of bathing suits.  For safety and comfort, she has been built with a SeaKeeper, Flir Night Vision, and hydraulic boarding stairs. The SeaKeeper eliminates up to 95% of the boat roll you normally feel and transforms everyone’s experience on the water. The FLIR will allow you to travel after sunset in the safest conditions possible. The boarding stairs drop down into the water and allow easy access into and out of the water. These stairs are designed like stairs in your home, a gentle walk up. Goodness is equipped with 3 Mercury 450R engines. You can get anywhere you want in the Virgin Islands, quickly. Goodness was built with Safety and Comfort as the priorities.

Goodness Crew

The Goodness Crew will give you that same “owner” experience you enjoy on Gracious. This crew is part of the team and will extend the same safety, local knowledge, and service that you experience on Gracious. The crew has over 10 years of experience navigating the Virgin Island waters and has helped lots of guests create memories of a lifetime.

Graciously Grateful

The owners should rename this beautiful boat "GRATEFUL" since anyone who is lucky enough to be aboard will be eternally grateful for such a wonderful experience. Captain Andrew, Chef Michaela and First Mate Caroline exceeded any and all expectations for our once-in-a-lifetime vacation in the beautiful BVIs.

The crew is warm and welcoming, the meals we had were beyond delicious, and the boat itself is luxurious and comfortable. The memories we made on this trip will last a lifetime!

Class Of Her Own

Today is such a bittersweet day as we head home. The crew was so incredible, we all just fell in love with them. The food was phenomenal and Gracious?? Well she is in a class of her own, so gorgeous!  Please thank the owner for allowing us to enjoy, for a short time, his slice of heaven and a great hand picked selection of great wine.

Experience Of A Lifetime

This crew is an impressive team. It's incredibly important to have great chemistry and synergy within the crew as the space is very limited on a boat. They had both. Being new to sailing, it was imperative to have a captain who knew what he was doing. As we know in sailing, we are at the mercy of the winds. The Captain with his engineering background knew the boat very well, which gave us the confidence to be on a boat for the days we sailed in more challenging and easygoing conditions. The chef’s food was exceptional. The care that she put into her food was remarkable. She has a very broad repertoire when it comes to food. Being a foodie and having been to many Michelin star restaurants all over the world, I would say her food is right up there. Her menu was well thought out using fresh, local ingredients; creative, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! The crew’s professionalism, attention to detail, impeccable service and fun-loving vibe was incredible. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more even if we wanted to. Thank you for an experience of a lifetime!"

Once In A Lifetime Experience

This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. This was a surprise for my husband’s birthday and it beat all of our expectations. The crew were so warm and accommodating. They created a very relaxing and memorable experience for us! The weather was perfect and we saw the most breathtaking sunset. Highly recommend this boat tour to anyone!!

Absolute Best

The ABSOLUTELY BEST CATAMARAN CHARTER EXPERIENCE IN THE CARIBBEAN. We were four couples celebrating important wedding anniversaries and wanted the best. The boat, accommodations, crew, meal service and sailing experiences EXCEEDED all expectations as we spent the week recently sailing among the British Virgin Islands. The 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 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 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!

We came into this trip thinking it would be the trip of a lifetime. Both of you are solely
responsible for having our expectations exceeded. The snorkeling spots, the food, the sailing & most importantly the company you both provided was fantastic. You will forever be remembered by our family.

Relaxed Immediately

It was obvious as soon as we arrived on the boat that we had made the best crew choice. You made us feel comfortable and relaxed immediately. You both were incredibly knowledgeable and soooo much fun. It was honestly like we were sailing with family all week. The food was so delicious everyday. It truly means a lot that we got to enjoy our greatest family vacation with such a wonderful couple. THANK YOU!!``
