Your crew onboard BB are a delightful team whose professional attitude and friendly, enthusiastic disposition will ensure that your vacation onboard MY BB will be an unforgettable one.
Bob & Sharon have been a couple since 1989. Since 2000, after moving to BVI, they have been enjoying their career together, as a professional charter boat team.
Bob has had a passion for sailing since his early teens, where he sailed the Great Lakes of Canada. He owned his first boat in his early twenties & moved to the Cayman Islands in 1992 where he started his professional sailing career.
As a captain, Bob has sailed the east coast of the United States from Miami to Maine, most of the Carribean Islands, crossed the Atlantic Ocean from Spain, to Italy & France.
In his spare time you will find Bob listening to music (he owned a record store before he started professional sailing) or enjoying the outdoors.
Sharon started sailing after meeting Bob. After many years in the beauty business (she owned and operated a hair salon and several bath and beauty boutiques) she turned her creative talents to the galley. While sailing with Bob she has developed an international cooking style and greatly enjoys catering to all dietary and culinary needs and preferences. When not in the galley Sharon enjoys walking, hiking, yoga, travel and of course, finding that great next meal.
Sharon & Bob’s personalities are charming and friendly. They have a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh, which make people feel at home and welcome. They are patient & flexible, possess strong hospitality skills and enjoy involvement with guests, but also understand the need for privacy. They always aim to exceed every guest's expectation and try to anticipate their needs and cater to them. Whether enjoying quiet anchorages, lively beach bars, hiking or exploring quaint villages, relaxing on beautiful beaches or simply enjoying the sun, they have the knowledge and experience to take you there. Their entertaining nature and flair for hospitality will ensure that the time you spend on MY BB will be an unforgettable experience.
Dan- First Officer/Engineer
First Officer and Engineer Dan Szymczak grew up on the water in Fairfield County, Connecticut, before earning an English degree at the University of Texas in Austin. On Lake Travis, he raced on a J/80 sloop, then bought his first sailboat, a 20-ft Gulf Coast sloop. After attending graduate school, and earning an MFA in fiction, he moved to Brooklyn where he taught English literature and public speaking at a business school in Manhattan, while also working for three years on a day sail schooner in the beautiful New York Harbor. Deciding that he wanted to make his career on the water, he found work aboard an expedition ship where he spent a year at sea, exploring the Sea of Cortez, the rivers of Washington State, the inside passage to South East Alaska, as well as Costa Rica, and the Panama Canal. And after years of deliveries, day sails, and charters in NYC, South Florida, the Bahamas, and Newport RI, he’s now the first officer / engineer aboard M/Y BB, where he loves to, as he says, keep the lights on and the engines running.
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.
