Yacht Broker Andrea
Andrea grew up in Columbia and at an early age moved to Venezuela where she lived on the coast. She moved to the BVI 14 years ago and spent the first 10 years setting up and running a successful diving business so she knows all the best dive sites intimately! and will be happy to show you those secret little spots that are not always known.
Her love of water started at an early age when she took up synchronized swimming at her local club and she eventually went on to compete at the National level. She then went back to college in Columbia where she studied International cuisine.
Her specialty as a chef was Organic Latin cuisine as in South America all the produce is sourced and grown locally. She always tries to use organic and local produce in her cooking and loves to experiment with new recipes and ideas and is passionate about everything she does.
Andrea always has a cheeky smile on her face and guarantees all her guests will have fun on her charters, she is skilled as an Stand up Paddleboard Instructor and also licensed powerboat Captain and now full time yacht broker.
Steve has spent his whole life living on or by the sea, at 16 he started as an apprentice with Princess Yachts which started his love for hospitality, sailing and everything to do with the sea.
Steve has been a professional sailor for over 15 years and his experience has included, teaching sailing courses in Spain, the Balearics and the BVI, delivering yachts all over Europe and the Caribbean, running charters for the prestigious “Four Seasons resort” and skippering charter and private yachts including a 90’ classic sloop in the Caribbean and Bahamas. He has over 50,000 miles as skipper including 5 transatlantic deliveries but his real love is sailing in the BVI and rest of the Caribbean, which he knows intimately, in fact he has navigated to every Island from Puerto Rico in the North to Trinidad in the south.
Steve is an RYA Yacht-master, IYT Master Unlimited, RYA, ASA and IYT sailing Instructor and PADI open water diver, he consistently receives outstanding customer reviews for his relaxed style, unflappable nature and friendly personality from everyone who sails with him.
When not sailing you will find him kitesurfing, diving or flying his drone capturing the natural beauty of the British Virgin Islands.
