Your Crew


Captain Andrew and Chef Michaela have been working on charters as Captain and 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 guests 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 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.


Originally from Austin, Texas, Allie Faulkner has a BBA in marketing from UT Austin and joins the crew after 4 years living in the British Virgin Islands. Having always loved being near any body of water, Allie found her love for sailing while working with Sail Caribbean as Provisions Director and a sailing instructor. Allie is passionate about the hospitality industry and having a hand in creating unforgettable experiences for her guests. Always working hard to provide the best guest experience possible, Allie loves getting creative and is excited to be making specialty cocktails for all aboard Gracious. Allie enjoys all water sports activities and is excited to share a love for the water and the BVI with you! After 3 years working at a resort on Virgin Gorda as a guest assistance and Social Media Manager, Allie is excited to be back out on the water, where she feels most at home!

We had a wonderful time aboard Gracious. Everything was absolutely perfect and far exceeded our expectations. The crew was excellent and truly made the experience unforgettable.

Fabulous BVI Cruise!

I wanted to send a personal note to thank you both so very much for a fabulous BVI cruise. It’s been 50 years since I first decided that sailing around the Caribbean was something I wanted to do. It just never made it to the top of the list until now. I have always loved sailing, and often been disappointed when snorkeling excursions on a catamaran became motoring trips to murky sites. I’m so glad we did those lovely sails to Anegada and back, and the several snorkeling chances in the crystal clear waters was the best ever. You all took such good care of us all. I sincerely hope we will meet again someday.

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!

What a dream vacation! This was a wonderful way to show our friends/family the Virgin Islands. Everything was amazing. You guys went above and beyond and were professional, kind, friendly, funny and made the trip magical. Thanks for the great food, answering all our

Trip Of A Lifetime

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.
