Testimonials

January, 2024, charter guests two of them on their 32nd charter with Marianne and Kristian on BREANKER said:

An adventure on the Breanker began with a friendly smile and warm welcome from Kristian and Marianne. Of course we immediately could appreciate the beautiful boat and the quaint cabin, the thoughtful linens and the beautiful waters and islands. I never imagined the countless amazing meals we feasted on three times a day, every day and one better than the day before! The snorkeling, the outings and beautiful trails are memories forever, but the greatest gift were the memories of complete peacefulness as you wake every morning and upon resting every evening. It’s a special peace that so easily sets in when you are surrounded by such special people as Marianne and Kristian on beautiful Breanker.

Much love and thanks,

 Jean and Monique

Had an incredible trip! Thank you, Kristian and Marianne, for making this week so memorable for us_____ so special. All that we have heard about you as hosts and the Breanker were surpassed by miles! We wish you the very best as you transition to your new life on Water Island. Perhaps you will be hosting us again on land on our next visit. We’d love to have you visit Colorado too!

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. Your cooking is fabulous and drink making too! We never forget the lime in the coconut drink. This island adventure will never be forgotten. Maybe someday we will meet again. We will have to come and rent the upper floor of your St. Thomas home when it is done. We would love to hear more stories of your retirement. Good luck and many well wishes. Thanks for the tip of celery juice. Can’t wait to incorporate that in to our morning routine.

Love, Mark and Lisa

We hope you enjoy a wonderful retirement. You are so hardworking and well deserving of a nice peaceful transition. Good luck on the completion on your beautiful home on Water Island.

Kristian and Marianne – One more time for our scurvy sailors! Our “last call” with you has been as wonderful as the first, second, third and so on, since we’ve lost track of how many great trips we’ve had with you. As always, the food and drinks were awesome. We loved having a slightly different experience this time, visiting new secret spots that we never tried before. We appreciating you accommodating our plans to see our friends playing in White Bay. Your legendary hospitality didn’t fail! Remember in years to come that we would all love to have you visit us at our homes, so make your plans!

We love you both!

Dee, Bill, Teresa, Tom, Cheryl, Don

I will miss Breanker and the wonderful vacations we had on her, but looking forward to seeing your next adventures in retirement 
Come to Florida, Billy and Kristin

Thanks so much for all you have done for us. We have enjoyed our time with you on Breanker so much! We will miss you both but hope to see you again in St. Thomas, Denmark or California or anywhere else we can work out! We love you both and you are always welcome to visit us!

Marianne and Kristian, so glad to be back on Breanker with you. The experience just gets better. You know how we feel about the two of you, so no need to expound on that. Can’t wait to be in your company again to share stories, laughter and the love we feel for you. Best wishes for continuous smooth sailing.

Love, 
Ned and Hector

Marianne and Kristian, Rob and I have been looking forward to this trip with you… a little longer than anticipated due to unforeseen circumstances… but it did not disappoint. The location we visited were beautiful, and your hospitality was beyond compare! And the food…words can begin to describe how amazing it was! If you ever get around to that cookbook, we want the first copy. We hope you have an amazing final season and that your next chapter is as fulfilling as this one has been.

Best wishes and warm regards,

Kristen and Rob 

Kristian and Marianne – We are so happy to have made it back for us second trip with you! The scenery is beautiful of course, but what REALY makes this trip and keeps us coming back is you. You two are the very best hosts and the most wonderful people. We loved hearing all of your stories and learning about your home. Happy for you but sad for us, that you’ll only have one more season – we’ll need to work on getting back!! Or maybe visiting Denmark! Or both!!

Much love, 
Aaron and Jodi
