Marianne's Fresh Gourmet Food & Kristian's Irresistable Tropical Drinks

Food is a critical part of any vacation experience and our customers typically want something special & memorable. Fortunately Marianne’s father was a chef and she was brought up with a love and interest for cooking. Our extensive traveling has only served to broaden her culinary horizons and gourmet options, creating mouth watering delights. Marianne enjoys cooking with fresh produce and fruits and making her healthy meals from scratch. We of course cater to special dietary needs.

We also stock bottled water, juices, soft drinks and beer in our on-deck cooler and in the bar we carry a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Standard bar is included.

Thank you so much for a wonderful week at sea. As this was our first time for such a trip, you made us feel at ease and most welcome the minute we stepped on board. You are both great hosts. Marianne, what a fabulous cook you are and Kristian a most accommodating bartender. It was a fun and relaxing week with any memorable moments. “Get out of our cove”!

Best wishes to you both and safe sailing.

Marianne and Kristian what a week! Thank you for making our trip outstanding. We could not have asked for anything more. You thought of everything. The food was unbelievable and how amazed we were, when there was nothing out and then all of a sudden, out came a meal better than any fine restaurant. You took us to all the best spots in BVI. We had the best time with our old friends and our two new ones.

Thanks, Michael and Erin

Marianne and Kristian. We had a wonderful time on Breanker the past nine days. After ten years of chartering in BVI we must say that Marianne is by far the best chef we’ve ever had! Your meals were a delight and we thank you enormously for the recipes. (The royalty check is in the mail). We loved the snorkel spots and especially the “Jacuzzi”! Thank you so much for the warm hospitality and sharing your home at sea with us. Wishing you good health and many great times with your grand kids.

Our very best regards, The Nobles, the Rogers, and the Morissons

Marianne and Kristian, I truly don’t know where to begin; To try and share my thoughts and feelings abut this past week would take me “pages”! Without a doubt this is OUR BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER! From the beautiful boat to the incredible harbors, snorkeling adventures, boat jumping, tubing, family swimming and so much more – it was all over the top! And what can I say about our meals…. your cooking was FANTASTIC! You both did everything possible to make our family experience onboard the Breanker truly special – and it was! I have never had so much fun and relaxed so much all at the same time. As I stand above – I can go on pages…. Tarpon, sea turtles, pirate show, Honeymoon Bay, sunsets, bubbly pool, kayaking and trail hiking!! Please understand that as I write this and reflect on our week, literally have tears in my eyes thinking about all the wonderful family memories that we made here. Jack, Phillip, Ashley and I will cherish this experience forever. It was also a true pleasure to get to know you and Kristian. Thank you for the hospitality and new friendship forayed… Good luck with your Denmark project and I wish you safe travel home!

We will defiantly be back for another Breanker adventure! Thank you again for this incredible experience. Good Bless 

With love John, Ashley, Jack – 10 and Phillip – 7

My highlight was snorkeling; I had so much fun at Buck Island with the sea turtles. Jack

I enjoyed snorkeling at Peter Island. Love Phillip

Marianne and Kristian, Thank you so much for our second charter experience. We loved the USVI way better and this was the perfect week away. Thank you for you hospitality and for keeping our bellies full. As always the food was amazing. I feel this trip was extra special given all the animals we got to see – sea turtles, an octopus, a sand shark etc. The jumping stingray was also amazing! Since our sister and brother in law missed the trip due to their Breanker baby, we will be back again soon! Have a safe travel to Denmark and enjoy your time off with your family! Wishing you all the love and happiness.

March 8, 2017 – a week charter – 1sttime – for our MN – FL – AK group.

We can’t say enough to express the wonderful hospitality, culinary and sailing expertise! Of Marianne end Kristian JThey keep such a clean boat and clearly they are so organized with their years of chartering. We felt so pampered with food, drink, dinghy-shuttle and tour guiding by these lovely warm people. I can only hope that we might be able to come again on a charter with Kristian and Marianne. Oh, and it was so fun for snorkeling! We loved the Bath and the Dogs Isle for this the best.

If you EVER decide to enjoy seeing Minnesota in the summertime – we would LOVE to host you J_ In fact, we would include some boat time of the St. Croix River too! I hope we keep in touch for a very long time.

P.S. I hope they do not have a bouncer who will force/through us off the boat! J

Kristian and Marianne this was our third charter on the Breanker and we had an absolutely fabulous time. Kristian and Marianne are the most welcoming and enjoyable hosts – we would not ever consider chartering with anyone else. They always go out of their way to make sure that their charter guests have a wonderful time. Marianne’s cooking is spectacular and the meals are healthy too! Although this is only our third charter it feels like we have known Kristian and Marianne for 10 years. We had such fun every night laughing until our stomachs hurt. The trip was pure joy for us. We are so relaxed and happy that we do not want to leave the boat. We will most definitely charter with them again. Thank you both for making our trip so enjoyable and memorable.

P.S. Also I meant to mention that Kristian and Marianne keep Breanker in such good condition. The boat is always immaculate.

WOO HOO! We want to do 10 days next time!

This was our introduction to catamaran sailing and WOW was it great. From the wonderful food to the beautiful sites, it was our greatest relaxing vacation we have ever taken. You two made the experience all the more special with wonderful Happy Hour drinks and snacks. But perhaps the best part of the trip were your warm hearts and great stories. You made this vacation personal, relaxing and most of all fun! Thank you again for helping us renew friendships, make new friends, eat fabulous food in beautiful locations and experience life in the BVI. You have made this experience truly great.

Love, Dave and Tonya

Holy cow! Where do I begin! We will begin with the crew. You two are nothing short of amazing. You work together so well that we can’t really tell which one of you are in charge! JThe food and wonderful company really did make the trip complete….because the place is the most beautiful on earth. A trip like this has always been a dream of ours and we were not disappointed. We (as you know) are now figuring out how we can get back here. We hope you will continue to charter forever, because now we have discovered sailing – we do not want to do it with anyone else!!

Love you two! Most Amazing trip ever! Friends forever!

W/love Ron and Liz
