Breanker

Owners & Crew - Kristian & Marianne

Experience, Experience & More Experience

We are Kristian & Marianne, and this is our business. We are Danish citizens and have been sailing together for over 30 years.  Marianne holds an International Yacht Master 3rd Degree license and Kristian holds an International Yacht Master 1st Degree license.  We designed and built two larger sailboats from scratch and we've sailed the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, the English Channel, the Mediterranean, the Pacific Ocean & the Carribean.  In fact, we sailed across the Atlantic Ocean twice, once in a boat that we built.  We have chartered boats for customers like you for 27 years in the Bahamas, Central America, and the Virgin Islands where we have been for the past 22 years.

We understand customer service and care about your catamaran vacation experience in a way that larger companies and younger crews simply cannot.  Our extensive experience with boats and chartering will give you a greater peace of mind and allow you to more fully relax and enjoy your vacation.

You are the best host’s we have ever had! Every little thing you did made us feel at home and pampered at the same time. You took us to the most wonderful spots for snorkeling and enjoying the views. We love your boat and the two of you! The food was fantastic! Thank you so much!

This is difficult to put into words just how unique our time has been on Breanker and with the two of you. Your patience, obvious experience and talent on deck and in the kitchen, and your infectious smiles are unparalleled. I can only say thank you for sharing part of your lives with us. People are truly blessed to have spent time with the two of you. We share that blessing.

Safety from In-Depth Knowledge

We designed and built our first sailing yacht, a traditional 68' Baltic Trader, Nana, in Denmark in the seventies and set off in 1983 on a four-year cruise in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. We sold Nana and we started the project of designing and building Casador, a luxurious 68' aluminum sloop which became the cover of Cruising World in Feburary 2003 shown in the picture here.  We chartered Casador for many years, giving us a unique perspective on exactly what makes a boat great for customers.

We used that knowledge to completely retrofit Breanker for your pleasure and safety.  We know our boat to a level of detail that many charter captains will never understand.

Thank you both for a wonderful week – We are speechless!!!

I am so glad we went with you for our charter! You made the trip so easy for us but we know the two of you worked so very hard. Your experience shows and we had complete confidence in your knowledge, skill and judgment. You made us feel safe and took excellent care of our young children – our most valuable treasures!

More Guest Comments About Us...

Dear Marianne and Kristian. We have been looking forward to this trip since we booked it in 2017. We had a fabulous trip the first time in 2010 and hoped the second trip would be just as good. You did not disappoint us!  We so both enjoyed the knowledge you shared about the islands we passed and visited. The devastation from the 2017 hurricanes became so real to us we did not realize how many people are still suffering. The food you served us was spectacular. We wanted doggie bags for next week! You made us feel welcome in your home away from your house in Denmark. Breanker is a beautiful place. May there always be a breeze to fill your sails!

Love, Gary and Susan

Marianne and Kristian. Thank you very much for a wonderful second trip on the Breanker. We loved our first trip with you in May 2010 and didn’t think that could ever be topped. But top it you did and exceeded our expectations bar far. We loved all the sailing time we had this week as the weather cooperated for sailing. We loved Marianne’s Denmark lesson. I know I learned a lot about an area I knew nothing about. But the thing we loved most was being able to spend time with you during our fabulous meals. You both have so much to share about your life stories. We loved hearing all about them. We feel like you have been part of our lives for a long time. Hopefully our paths will cross again some time! Thank you, Chris and Greg

Chris and Greg

Such a wonderful, wonderful week for a couple of water novices. Beautiful part of the world and I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed our time with Kristian and Marianne. We felt so comfortable with them sailing their “home” with us. Lovely, capable and easygoing couple. Food was fabulous. Can’t wait to do it again with the kids. Thanks so much.

Maryellen and I had a great time not water people in general, we learned about sailing and navigation. Never knew anything about a catamaran either. Food was outstanding, snorkeling, SUP boarding and shore trips were great. We went with three other couples and have had a lot of laughs. Kristian and Marianne were very hospitable and we were treated like family. Thank you for an experience of a lifetime.

MaryEllen and Bill

Kristian and Marianne, thank you, thank you, thank you for a trip of a lifetime. Shane and I cannot thank you enough for such a great week on the water. You both are so warm and great travel storytellers. We will never forget this trip. Shane will tell stories of his time at the helm and I am sure the stories will grow as the years go by. I hope that our path will cross again someday – somewhere – we have grown to love you both.

Shane and Gigi

Marianne and Kristian, Thank you for making us look like heroes – we planned this trip for us and three other couples – who have never cruised – and I know that a great trip was had by all. This is our fourth charter of the BVI’s and it was everything and even more than we expected! Itinerary was fabulous and we saw some new places – food was out of this world delicious and plentiful – and our hosts made us feel like family. Many laughs were shared and memories were made – as well as new and old friendships – thank you till we meet again.

What a trip! Great food, great views, great booze and great hosts. The waking up to a delicious breakfast every day was always a delight. Great fun and would love a return trip!

Otto

It is tough to imagine a better way to spend a week; unless of course you hate gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, beautiful islands, crystal clear Caribbean waters, terrific snorkeling and out of this world food! There is also the perfect sea breeze in the front of the boat, time to read in the sunshine and Kristian’s drinks to contend with…. Tough duty J

Thank you Marianne and Kristian for your delightful hosting and an absolutely perfect week

MaryPat

Thanks you so much for a great trip! The islands were beautiful, the boat was delightful and Marianne and Kristian were amazing! Muskmelon cove, the Beeline bar and Foxy were amazing. Marianne’s cooking and Kristian’s bartending were superb. Hopefully we are back soon!

Will

We are so honored to get to join this group of friends and crew on this sojourn around the islands of the Caribbean. Det bedste er “danks Mad” - (the best is Danish food)! Nothing better! We will have wonderful memories and pictures to remind us.
