Jannas & Carolina
Captain Jannas is a very passionate person, with a soft yet confident nature & highly adaptable. He loves sharing experiences in the great outdoors with good company and making sure everyone is having way too much fun. Jannas is also an open-hearted, humorous, people-loving, coffee-geek adventurer from South Africa. Never fear, Jannas is here, and if there is any sport you want to try, he'll get you out there, from surfing & kite-boarding specialized holidays, to hiking trails, swims and snorkeling, fishing and of course for other advanced sporty-types, bar hopping and seeing the local sights. His strong technical background, from robotic automation to Yachtmaster is an asset on the boat, which translates into a safe & comfortable ride with nothing to worry about. He is equally enthusiastic & involved with your culinary experience as the chef! His experimental cooking style always makes for a lot fun around the table & his "Braai-master" (bbq) skills are the best and no steak will be left unturned.
Chef Carolina is a blend from sunny South Africa & Argentina and is the life and light wherever she finds herself, she feeds your soul with her warm character and takes your taste buds on a blended culinary experience incorporating ideas from all over the world through her travels. A soon-to-be Nutritionist, she gets great joy from guests' appreciation of the food which inspires her even more. Carolina has been to places and embarked on adventures that most people would never dream of doing, she inspires a sense of adventure in almost every person in her life, all the while feeling completely cared for in her hands. Sailing the world's oceans for 10 years, playing guitar, creating food, learning about the world, going on expeditions speaking dog, cat, fish, Spanish, Portuguese and Afrikaans, surfing, rock climbing swimming and yoga is only a fraction of what she has mastered...read more
Jannas and Carolina are ready to welcome you aboard and introduce you to this easy-going way of life in the Caribbean Sunshine, nothing less than just "Ama-Zing" (African for amazing). Everybody is welcome to chill out, relax, kick back & sip on that special drink to the beat of a different rhythm. So, get ready to be "Knot-Anchored".

We spent one of our best weeks ever as a family in the BVIs aboard Aliwe.
She is a 53 ft Sail cat built in South Africa. We have been on lots of boats, and chose her based on accommodations and the newness of this boat along with the size and spaciousness of the galley and staterooms. We were not disappointed. The headroom was amazing, and the electric toilets and showers in each stateroom were great. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage girls, and each had their own room. We, the parents, had our own state room with a king sized bed where we slept with open hatches at night and could feel ocean breezes all night... loved it!
The crew were very gracious hosts, and most accommodating to our every needs. They were first to rise and last to bed every night, but made sure we were looked after during the trip. Our oldest daughter is Vegan, and the chef made sure she had what she wanted every meal, along with honoring the rest of the familys request for more traditional meals. We had our choice for a menu (both food /snacks/and bar) and all was aboard exactly as we requested (even the Moet and Chandon Champagne). We were greeted on arrival with wonderful snacks and champagne. Our favorite part of the day was the afternoon when the chef appeared with a yummy tray of snacks and her question of our afternoon drink of choice.
The captain took us to all the highlights of the BVIs, but was open to any requests we had and would sit with us in the galley and go over the charts of the BVIs and let us pick any destination that looked good, total adventure!
We snorkeled, paddle boarded, kayaked, swam, or went sightseeing everyday, basically whatever we wanted to do. The crew were very professional, yet at the same time, became like family and interacted with us on a very personal level when they were not otherwise doing their jobs as Captain and first mate.
After trips, we typically talk amongst ourselves and decide whether we would go again. We all said we were ready to go back the very next day! ~The Miles Family South Carolina

Knot Anchored is perfect from the lighting, themed rooms and, of course, a Yeti Cooler that is to die for with perfectly cold beer, wine, juices, etc. The guys would have taken the Yeti home with us if they could have gotten it on the plane. Chrissy's awesome meals will leave you wanting for nothing and coming home to hit the treadmill.
Their knowledge of the islands and willingness to share them with you and still explore them alongside you makes for an even more exciting time with your new friends, and I do mean we consider them friends. With this being our third charter in the BVI we didn't know if we could be awed any more than we had been already, but SteveO and Chrissy made our love for the islands that much greater.
We look forward to chartering with them again for more exciting adventures. We highly recommend SteveO, Chrissy and Knot Anchored for either a laid back vacation with a couple of friends or with your family - you will not be disappointed. Thank you SteveO, Chrissy and KnotAnchored for a wonderful, relaxing, exciting and PERFECT vacation.
I cannot imagine how we could have made the vacation any better. The condition and decor of the boat was impeccable, and their ability to "be there" when you need them, and somehow "not be there" at the right moments to allow for some family "alone time" is a real talent.
They read our moods and preferences perfectly. Early on in our trip it became obvious that when the Captain asks what we would like to do next, the best answer was " whatever you recommend Captain".
Great boat, great crew, great trip. ~Jill, Donald, and the girls
My wife and I have traveled to many Caribbean destinations, Hawaii, and thru out the US, this trip is by far my favorite, in fact we were not even home and we were already planning the next journey aboard Knot Anchored. Chris (Bismarck ND)
From there on till end of the week we were wowed with 5 star meals prepared with consideration for my allergies while keeping everyone else happy (dairy and egg is not easy to cater too). We were in control over our itinerary each day and were able to decide what we want to do and how we want to spend the day. Our days included hanging out on secluded beaches, diving shipwrecks, paddle boarding, hiking through old ruins, visiting small beach bras, snorkeling and partying while completely disconnecting from our regular day to day (despite always having access to internet all of us chose to take the vacation in and forget about the daily stresses of our regular lives).
It has been two months since we have returned home and while we all continue to speak of this great vacation I am already a planning a trip back with my parents and my son.
I highly recommend this trip for everyone (families with kids, friends....). The value you get on this vacation is incomparable to even the highest rated resort (Sandals or any other place you can think of). I give this charter a 5 star plus rating.
Not once did we feel like visitors. We truly felt like guests in their home, because that's what we were! Chrissy worked so hard to ensure all dietary needs and special requests were met, not to mention stocking our favorite beverages and snacks! Each meal was better than the last and it was remarkable how knowledgeable Stevo is of the islands, shipwrecks, coves, etc. Both of them have a passion for exploration, hospitality and a good time, which is evident as it positively shines from within them.
I will never, ever again book a typical Caribbean resort trip. From now on, it's Knot Anchored for me - you will fall in love with the magic of this boat and like me, will start counting the days until you return the minute you hit the dock.

Thank you again for everything!!

You saw to every detail from daily inspirational quotes to T shirts and water bottles. Eden loved playing games with you (and telling you her stories). All the kids (including the big ones) had so much fun on the costume night when we all dressed up.
You two are very special and made us feel very welcome and special, too. It is obvious that this is not just a job for you both but a true passion. We hope that you continue to enjoy sailing together in such a beautiful place. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and we hope to come back again soon.
