Captain Bret is a seasoned sailor after circumnavigating the world on his 41 ft Ketch, Broken Compass. Following a career in Finance and Economics after landing his degree from James Madison University, Bret, his twin brother, and their Siberian Husky, Makai, notably double handed across the Pacific without an auxiliary engine or autopilot.
After crossing the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans and three and a half years of exploring the world and developing a love for fishing and the Ocean, the two brothers founded Broken Compass, LLC, a fishing and tackle company.
As a licensed Captain, Yacht master Offshore, PADI Diving Instructor, AIDA 3 free diver, a professional fisherman, and natural Mariner, Bret displays his years of sea experience guiding guests around the Caribbean aboard S/Y Serenity Now.
Chef Mallory Patterson brings an extraordinary cooking ability as well as a delightful energy to the crew of Serenity Now. She grew up on Lake Huron in Michigan and spent her childhood Sailing the Great Lakes, waterskiing, power boating and an array of other water activities.
After earning her degree in hotel and restaurant management from Johnson and Wales University, she went on to manage several different hotels and restaurants before she made her transition to the yachting industry. Today she has raised the bar for outstanding cuisine in the charter yacht market. In her words, “I love it because I am now able to do all of my favorite things, cook, travel, and sail.”
Mallory is also a Yacht Master, PADI Rescue Diver, and AIDA 2 Freediver, diving down to 80 feet.
At the 2014 Newport Charter Yacht Show Culinary Competition, Mallory knocked it out of the park, winning both the Healthy Beverage and Sunset Canapé challenges.
Mallory somehow delivers a never-ending cavalcade of delicious, new recipes inspired by the freshest, local ingredients. Her meals have been a constant source of universal delight to a long list of discriminating guests and clients. She has exceeded the culinary standards set before her by chefs from some of the best restaurants in New York. Despite her extraordinary cooking ability, Mallory's personality may be her most impressive quality. She gets along with everyone and is a lovely and positive addition to social life aboard.
