October 2 update: Breanker is OK

Dear guest and friends,

We want to thanks so many of you who have shown your concern for our Breanker and us. We have received so many emails, comments and questions on our Face Book page so we will answer all of you this way.
We have been in Denmark for the summer and Breanker has as usual stayed in the boat yard in Puerto Rico, having work done so that she is ready for the upcoming season. It was just our luck that Irma and also Jose stayed north of us and we suffered no harm.
Another story was when hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico full force. BUT again we were so very, very LUCKY and have just got word from a friend there, that BREANKER IS OK!!!
We know that this is going to be a different season to begin with but have great faith in that the Virgin Islands will rebound in a couple of months, foliage is growing back and that everything will be fine again. The Tortola government does not want to see all its business going south to the lower Caribbean so they will do everything to get up and running again, services back up, hotels reopened and beach bars opened. The ocean will still have the same Caribbean blue color and the underwater life is still amazing.

We have an idea that it might be the next to last season on Breanker. We are telling you because quite a lot of you have asked us to do so. Therefore we hope to be able to invite some of our repeat guests back on board. We still have availability and will be starting our season in November and finishing up end of April. We have already started taking bookings for this season and season 2018-19. We are looking forward to hear back from you and also to see you back onboard Breanker.

I want to copy what one of my colleagues has said and what I find so true about what we can do to help the islands we all love so much:

Open your hearts and wallets and donate in some way. If you search the FB pages you will find ample opportunity. Then when you are done with that get online and start planning your next vacation to one of these beautiful islands. No it won't be the same as it was even a couple of weeks ago, but it will be beautiful and filled with fun and laughter. Do not stay away - the islands need you more than ever. In the beginning they do need your charity, but in the months to come they need your tourist dollars.  #vistrong #bvihelp #bvistrong #bvihelp
Best regards Kristian and Marianne

Trust Your Trip of a Lifetime to Our Experience

All catamarans look beautiful when sailing in turquoise water against a blue sky, but...

Classic Catamarans sets itself apart by improving EVERY aspect of your catamaran vacation experience (safety & comfort, fun, dining & more) with our experience.

See how some of our customers described their trip in a video...

Now let more of our customers tell you in their own words about their catamaran vacation, then please continue by reading about us, the Owners & Crew of Classic Catamarans.


When we look back upon this week the smiles we wont contain.
For in this short span of time our hearts will remain.
We look forward with a faithful heart that our paths will cross again.
But if our fate takes a different path, please know you are a friend.
We will remember glorious beaches with sand as white as snow
The Caribbean waters changing colors atop of every wave we roll.
We’ll remember the sounds of sails shifting in the wind
 And the sweet Danish accent of our captain and his kin.
We will reflect upon the majesty and the beauty in His name,
The coral, the sand, the mountain strands and the creatures below,
But none of these will we cherish as much as the people we’ve come to know!
Thank you both for the most incredible vacation we’ve ever had.

Fondly Sam, Shawn and Alison

This is my third BVI charter on a catamaran. It is so far above the rest that words fail me (some thing all my fellow charterers and crew will tell you is near impossible). 4 guys – needing an escape – from the hustle of the real world have come together for a spectacular trip, beautiful scenery, excellent comfort, superb cooking and meals, a plethora of available activities, and a tour of great bays, great cays, and great bars.

Kristian and Marianne very unobtrusively took care of our every need. Without imposing at all, they became, by invitation, friends and travel mates to each of us. Accommodations, food and drink were all top notch – but the get-away, to relax among friends, made this my best trip to the Caribbean – ever!


We can honestly say that this has been our best vacation ever. Relaxation, great food and drinks, beautiful sights and the best company ever. Thanks for putting up with our music and multiple mishaps with your glasses! We will be back for sure!

This was probably the best vacation I’ve ever had, and we owe so much of it to you guys. You gave us everything we could have possibly needed.

I know we can be a difficult group sometimes and you were so patient with us! Thank you for everything! I will never forget this trip or you guys!


My life is full of so many blessings – three fabulous, kind, caring children, a terrific husband, many wonderful friends and a loving family. My blessings grew this past week with the beautiful turquoise water, warm white sand, swimming, snorkeling, walks, quite time reading books and lots of family time. My blessings (my family’s blessings) also grew meeting you! Life on Breanker was coming HOME! Not only were we fed (most deliciously) and sheltered (rocked to sleep every night) but we felt at peace and loved. We are so very thankful to you both for having us in your home (Breanker)! We will forever hold your beautiful hospitality and most especially your friendship within our hearts! Parting is such sweet sorrow…..

Love, Michelle and the whole clan.

Thank you for this once in a lifetime experience. This has been so much fun to be part of your life on the water. I know we were a hard family to put up with and I thank you for your patience. Again thank you so much for everything.


Where do we start to thank you for the most wonderful week in your floating home. From the minute we met Kristian in Tortola we all knew we were going to have a special week. You have both exceeded our expectations by so very much. We feel that we have known you far longer than a week. You have anticipated and catered to out every need before we even thought of it!

The meals have been fantastic – one better than the one before. Kristian has taken us to the most beautiful places to snorkel and in and out of all the different bays. Thank you so very much for your wonderful hospitality and your gentle kind care of us this week.

It has been so wonderful to be with our family and dear friends for a week on your beautiful boat. It is not so often that we get the change to be so close to our girls for a week.

We feel like we made two new friends that we will think of often. We WILL be back again!!

Please call us anytime you are coming to the States. We would love to reciprocate your hospitality.

Love, Nancy, Bill, Jordan and Mary

This trip was absolutely wonderful! You guys did so much for us this past week and I hope you know how grateful we all are! You made this trip very memorable and made everything run so smoothly! Thank you so much for making this week an amazing experience.


I came into this vacation very stressed and over worked. I needed something to take everything off my mind and this just did it for me. The combination of the Breanker and you two are probably the three biggest stress relievers even with the rest of my family onboard. This vacation I will always remember. Thank you very much!

Sincerely Beau

This has been a wonderful experience for our family. We had a goal of bringing this family together and having a meaningful commitment ceremony.

All was achieved but at a level that far exceeded our expectations. You two were a big part of making that happen.  We will always remember this special trip and its moment in time makes a milestone for us.

Thanks for your hospitality, patience and taking a firmer hand with the kids – it turned our vacation around!

All the best David

Our last evening on board Breanker after sailing the BVI. We hoped that it would never end! You both made our vacation memorable. This was our first trip to the British Virgin Islands, and it was a week that we will never forget. You made us feel welcome, took us on a sailing adventure of many islands, served a wide variety of gourmet food from your kitchen, showed us were the best snorkeling was and provided us with all the comfort and service that we could have imagined. On a scale from 1 to 10, you rank as an 11. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever taken – we can’t thank you enough! We envy your life style and wish you the best sailing in to the future. Hope to see you again.

Al and Phyllis
