Our History

Co-founders, Brett and Veronica Williams, personally completed over 200 crewed yacht charters and understand exactly what it takes to make the perfect charter, from both the crew and guest perspective.

Utilizing this experience they are uniquely qualified to understand precisely what needs to happen to create an outstanding charter experience.

Working for ten years as a Captain and Chef team on a variety of yachts gave an in-depth knowledge of cruising grounds, anchorages, facilities and interesting activities ashore throughout the Caribbean & Mediterranean. It gave an insight into what makes a successful charter from a guest point of view, as well as the importance of the charter broker in administering the charter correctly.

Having lived in the Caribbean since 2001 Brett and Veronica are deeply passionate about promoting the Islands and the beautiful cruising grounds. A strong interest is taken in environmental sustainability along with supporting youth development in the region. With new cruising grounds opening up throughout the world we assist in promoting the Caribbean as one of the premier charter destinations.
