Sailing Yacht Antillean Overview

Antillean is a 50' Beneteau designed for the comfort of her charter guests. Our itinerary is custom designed to suit your needs. Antillean is available in the Virgin Islands from November until July, then south in the Grenadines for the summer months.

Antillean's superb hull, designed by Bruce Farr & Associates combined with substantial design input from Beneteau, represents a new approach in luxury yacht design.

Spirited and solid, she is a joy to sail, offering performance rarely found in cruisers in the 50 ft range. From bow to stern, Antillean is a product of experience and excellence.

To charter Antillian means for the period you are onboard, the boat is yours. The captain and crew are available to assist and advise. They know the areas in which you will be sailing, the many entertainments at the various stopping points, and can advise on itineraries so that you can maximize your vacation.

Itineraries are planned when you arrive, so that each guest's desires are catered to.

There is no rigid schedule, we run to a Caribbean timetable, where time has no real meaning. The captain hasn't work a watch for years.

Enjoy sailing on the warm, clear water of El Caribe. Watch the sunset while enjoying Heidi's hors d'oeuvers and drinks. Sit back and watch the stars and planets as they transit the heavens above calm anchorages. For the newcomer and the old hand, these are moments to treasure also a holiday of a lifetime.

Matthias & Amber

Matthias Bitterwolf was born and raised on a sailboat in St Thomas and spent his childhood sailing around the Caribbean, fishing, snorkeling and diving. He has worked in the marine industry for many years and has his 100 ton USCG captain's license and is a SCUBA Instructor.

Matthias has worked on many vessels ranging from 40ft sailboats to a 150ft mega yachts. His last job was captain on a 100ft passenger vessel carrying up to 350 guests, but he is now looking for a more rewarding career in the yacht charter industry on board Antillean. With Matthias' skills in diving, fishing, sailing and entertaining his guests he hopes to continue the success Antillean has had in the past.

Amber Duncan, Antillean's fiery cook, bartender, server, and entertainer was born in Florida. She grew up in Maine where she learned more about boating while fishing for lobster and eel with her mother and uncle. Amber also spent many years in the service industry as a bartender, server, and snorkel guide, as well as cook and crepe chef. She sailed from Florida to St Croix and since then has obtained her 100 ton USCG captain's license. Amber enjoys aquatic activities, fire dancing on the beach, hiking, exploring, beach combing, as well as creating new dishes with cultural flare.

Matthias & Amber are now Virgin Island expert crew with a number of charter seasons under their belts aboard Antillean.

 We thoroughly enjoyed our time aboard the Antillean
We thoroughly enjoyed our time aboard the Antillean. Matthias knows the entire area like the back of his hand and always was able to secure the best anchorage in each harbor we visited. He was an excellent scuba instructor for our kids (aged 13 and 16), getting them introduced, certified and loving scuba. Amber was extremely conscientious about keeping us well fed and the boat tidy. Having never chartered before, we were not exactly sure what to expect, however, our time aboard the Antillean exceeded our expectations. The sunshine, crystal clear blue water and beauty of the islands were great, but what really made the trip special was having Matthias and Amber there as our guides. We would recommend chartering with them without reservation and hope to be able to join them again for another adventure in the future.

 We had an awesome, amazing time!
So special and so fun! Thanks for showing us a view of the Virgin Islands from the natives viewpoint and knowledge. Information and experience with a fun flare attached Along with delicious food every day, every meal! We had an awesome, amazing time!

Bob and Kathy

Thank you for an awesome vacation adventure. We have had a time such that we will never forget. The food was spectacular, the locations amazing, and the generosity to take us where we wanted to go all wonderful. We enjoyed you sharing with us interesting information about various places we visited. Fabulous!!

Dean and Terry

Dear Matthias and Amber,

This has been a most awesome anniversary adventure. Even before we boarded, you sought to cater to our every need and desire. It was wonderful to feel comfortable and confident in you both from the moment we boarded the Antillean. The two of you work together well and cater to every desire. Matthias, your lifelong sailing experience alleviated all anxiety with this new adventure. Amber, your meals were not only delicious but beautifully presented. We also appreciated how you were sensitive to our personalities and our places in life. Thank you is inadequate.

Reviews for Antillean with previous crew:

John and Heidi were great, knowledgeable, fantastic food, great companions! Made us feel at home!

Heidi's cooking was over the top! It was great. We can't wait to make her crab cakes, thanks for sharing the recipe.

Did you enjoy the itinerary and the area you sailed?
- Yes, it was perfect for our first time on a sailing charter trip like this.

If you are looking for a great sailing adventure, relaxing time, great food, cold drinks and lots of laughs then sailing with John and Heidi, the experienced Captain and Crew of the Antillean, is the way to go!

Thanks again, it was a trip of a life time.

George E, aboard Sailing Yacht Antillean sailing the British Virgin Islands

Heidi and John were the perfect hosts. We mostly wanted total relaxation on our trip. We had limited sailing experience and limited knowledge of the area, and only knew that we wanted to completely relax and enjoy the sun and the sea. We thought that we might want to get off the boat and explore, assuming that the boat might be a little restrictive and that we would need the stimulation of different environments. We indicated before we left that we would want to get off at least once and maybe more often for food and nightlife. Heidi and John took us to a place early in the trip and suggested that it might be a good place to get off. They were correct that it was just the kind of place that we would have predicted that we would want to go. We stayed in that bay the night before and were able to hear the music and fun that was happening there, but when we thought about it, we realized that we could do that anywhere and we were really enjoying the food, company and surroundings on the ship and that we didn't want to interrupt it with the "teal" world. They were more than accommodating when we told them that if it was ok, we were going to eat every meal and spend every available moment on board. Mr Smee (the parrot) unexpectedly provided endless hours of entertainment!

Was Antillean comfortable, clean and well ventilated? - Much more than we had anticipated - we had a rainy day and yet were protected from the weather by the boat cover and sides. When the weather was nice (which was most of the trip) we enjoyed the fresh air and sun. We avoided showers the first day or two, because we were a little concerned with the limited space, but once we got beyond that, the showers became one of our favorite parts of the day.

The food was even beyond our expectations. Heidi was fantastic at serving up tasty treats when we didn't think we could eat another thing and we devoured them all. It was always a little more than we thought we needed but we enjoyed every bite. The meals were health and refreshing and the popcorn was especially appreciated! I was super impressed with the amount of fresh food that was on the boat, and how Heidi was able to use it as it hit its ripest point. We started out the week eating the fruits and vegetables that would ripen first (such as bananas) and yet there was plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables remaining at the end of the week.

Every day was more relaxing than the last. The only disappointments were weather related. We had rain the last full day and no wind at all returning to town. We had a fantastic time out sailing. One of our group was concerned about sea sickness, and the heeling over when we sailed, but by the second full day of sailing she was enjoying sitting on the front deck, feeling the sun and the wind and had no concerns about sliding into the ocean even as the boat was heeling over. It was exhilarating! We didn't do a lot of research before the trip about places to go, but we had read about the soggy Dollar and went there the first day of cruising. It was great fun. Heidi and John also suggested the baths and we had a great time there. After the first couple of days we settled into a routine of sailing and snorkeling which we all thrived on. Some of us had never snorkeled before and we couldn't get enough of it. They showed us some beautiful locations for snorkeling and we had lots of fun afterwards trying to identify what we had seen in their handy reference books.

John at Sailing Directions was also the perfect contact while planning the charter. We were a little overwhelmed when we started the planning process. We certainly took our time to decide whether this was the vacation for us. John answered all of our questions in a very timely fashion, patiently followed up just enough to keep us moving forward and followed through with all the necessary forms and information when we finally made our decision.

The most important thing that I can think of to describe our experience is that it was totally relaxing. A month after the trip, we all got together to go over the pictures and memories and we all agreed that it was the most amazing trip that we had ever taken. We all love to travel and have been many places, but this trip holds a special place for all of us. We all came home relaxed and even a month later can get back to that place in spite of all of the demands of the real world. We all agreed that we would do it again in a moment.

Antillean sails throughout the Caribbean from the Virgin Islands to Trinidad. The yacht is based in the US and British Virgin Islands for the months of November to July, then heads south to St. Lucia for the summers months, offering charters in the Grenadines.

Whether you are looking to lounge and relax, or fill your day with adventurous excursions, we'll take you to the most beautiful places to do it.

Antillean has a kayak onboard that guests may use to explore the many scenic anchorages we visit.

Shore visits can occur as often as you like and we can take you there in our 12 ft. Caribe dinghy. Browse around the many shops, restaurants, and bars on the islands or roam the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean. Snorkel gear is also carried onboard so you can also see what is beneath the surface of all that crystal blue water.

If you prefer to stay onboard to bask in the sun or relax in the shade, you can curl up with a good book or try your hand at some of the table games we have. Antillean also has a DVD player, CD and cassette player. Feel free to bring your favorite music or movies.
