Henry grew up near Bath in the U.K He first started sailing yachts aged 17 in Gibraltar. His first experience was a competent crew course. From this, he realised it was something he wished to pursue further, and decided to go through the steps leading to Yachtmaster Offshore. He completed this later that year aged 18.
His qualifications led him to work his first season as a cruising instructor in Croatia the following year. Whilst in Croatia, he developed strong engineering skills. This took him further afield to Australia, where he worked on Tall Ships and a Super Yacht.
He returned to Croatia after meeting Carrie in their hometown. Their combined skills and love for the water has led them to work in Greece, Antigua, Guadeloupe and Croatia together as Captain, Instructor and engineer on a wide range of boats.
In his spare time Henry loves to surf, swim, hike and dive. He is a qualified PADI Divemaster. Henry is an enthusiastic sailor, who would love to show you the best bays, anchorages, and the thrill of sailing a yacht.
Carrie grew up sailing, setting foot on her first dingy aged just 5. She showed promising skills, and was lucky enough to be offered opportunities to sail Tall Ships from age 13. These trips took her to Norway, Holland, Canada, Ireland, Portugal, and the Channel Islands. During some of these trips she began Offshore Yacht racing, and has carried these skills through her career to date.
Also a Yachtmaster Offshore and cruising instructor, Carrie and Henry met through their mutual goals and interests, and have been fortunate enough to travel and sail together. In their joint adventures they have worked on a variety of sized vessels, both Monohull and Catamaran. Carrie is a passionate chef, having completed training at the Orchards School of Cookery, and enjoys working with local cuisines and ingredients. Learning to cook on board a yacht in high seas during her racing days, she has found an easy transition to creating more refined dishes from a variety of inspirations.
When the opportunity arises, Carrie enjoys snorkelling, reading, music, hiking and running as ways to see the best of the local environment.
Inclusions and exclusion are not standardized across the different yachts, with each offering slightly different terms. Please contact us for a proposal that details the yacht’s availability and individual pricing based on the number of guests in your party, as well as the list of the inclusions and exclusions for that particular yacht.
This Yacht offers a “Plus Expenses” Rate:
Included are the Yacht and its onboard equipment as well as the Captain, Chef and Crew’s services.
Excluded are food and beverages, fuel for the yacht and its tender, any dockage, airport transfers costs, onshore excursions and tours, as well as any cruising permits, licenses and other charter related expenses. Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
Our team endeavors to provide up to date and accurate information regarding each yacht in our listing, however some yachts reserve the right to make last minute changes to their availability and rates. With this in mind, please note that premium rates may be attached to certain destinations and dates, such as Christmas and New Years in the Caribbean or July and August in the Mediterranean. Kindly contact us for a proposal that details the yacht’s final rate and availability.
