Meet the Crew

Matt & Tara

We are an experienced and energetic couple, with a diverse range of skills both above and below the water. We are a highly motivated, self-organised couple with an eye for detail and the desire to ensure our guests have the vacation of a lifetime.

We enjoy ensuring our guests discover the amazing waters of the British Virgin Islands through snorkelling and diving; Tara has been a diving instructor since 2001, she really enthuses about the local fish and their habitats, sharing her knowledge with quests.

Tara: I am a highly qualified chef, having spent two years in one of Londons top catering colleges, followed by 10 years working in some of the top restaurants and hotels in London. Wanting to travel I became a diving instructor and started exploring the world. I now have found a way to combine my two passions: cooking and the oceans. As a result of my training, when faced with issues like food intolerances or allergies, I am quickly able to produce suitable alternatives without inconveniencing the customer. I really enjoy creating new menus and experimenting with new dishes, in order to provide our guests with a fantastic culinary experience.

Matt: I am a RYA/MCA Yachtmaster with seven years experience of sailing the waters of Australia, BVI, Italy and the UK. I enjoy meeting new guests and dealing with any interesting challenges over the years. I love being involved on deck and in the water, as well as exploring new places and cultures.

Reviews for Nana with Matt & Tara:

Matt & Tara couldn’t have been more friendly and welcoming!

Nana was a great boat, very comfortable for our group. Outdoor space was the best part of the boat.

The food was fantastic. Presentation was superb. Preferences were well customized, thanks Tara!

We tweaked the itinerary as we went along and found the best snorkeling and places to stay.

Sailing Directions were very organized and great to deal with. Information on the website was great. We would certainly recommend your services to others.

Nina H, aboard Catamaran Nana sailing the British Virgin Islands

The crew were great!! Nana is comfortable and we enjoyed eating at the outside table for meals. Food was amazing! Tara did a wonderful job customized to our preferences.

You were very helpful and made it easier for us to book this trip.

Suzanne S, aboard Catamaran Nana sailing the Virgin Islands

Matt and Tara were exceptional. Friendly, helpful and a pleasure. They knew when to "fade into the background" but also were very engaged with our group. We have been numerous times to the BVI but they brought us to some wonderful snorkeling sites we had not seen before.

The boat was very clean absolutely no complaints there. Very nice boat, good spaces.

The food was AMAZING! If you like good food, go on this charter! Menu was well customized, some of us had food allergies, and Tara made some separate custom meals as good as the rest. Everything from scratch. Only problem is the few pounds we each gained for the week - well worth it. Matt is a terrific drink mixer.

Very good itinerary--and they were willing to go to the places we also wanted to see.

Sailing Directions' service was problem free and appreciated. Would recommend Sailing Directions, The Nana, and Matt and Tara without reservation.

Hi Matt and Tara,

Many thanks for a wonderful voyage of BVI adventure and fun, you have made our family feel fully at home on Nana. We have simply loved everything about our week in the BVI heaven, the sailing and finding great places to stay overnight.

Some revisited and some new - as done with a relaxed approach to schedules.The sundowners and other concoctions were perfect. The meals were all treated with great imagination and reflected our various wishes and likes each meal seemed better than the last.We have had a great time and are envious of the guests to follow who we know will be equally well looked after...

To the owner of Nana, Thanks for sharing Nana with us, you are fortunate to be so well represented by Matt and Tara.

Many thanks for such a wonderful week!
We had the time of out lives, even if it did end before 8 pm every night ...lol
Our hope is for your continued success in bringing such joy to others.
We could have asked for more- but we couldn't have eaten it,
The weather better - but it don't know how,
The week more relaxing - but we would have fallen off the boat,
The food better - no the food couldn't be better,
The service, the care, the kindnesses, the effort - All over the top
Thanks for giving us so much more than we could have imagined.
This was a dream trip from every aspect.

Our trip on the NANA was beyond words. We loved every single second we had on the boat and in the BVIs. Truly, the travel, food and experience was really perfect. Matt and Tara were very hospitable and Tara's culinary expertise was evident. It was obvious they took their jobs very. It was a trip of a life time, for sure - one we hope to do again!

We are having the most spectacular time! Matt and Tara are the best - The food, the boat, the snorkeling... all has been incredible.
Thank you for the sailing, the hospitality, the fun time and especially the food.This was a wonderful vacation and break from the real world.The best part was that everything was taken care of and we could just sit back and relax.It was fantastic to not have a care in the world and just take in the beauty of the Virgin Island. Hope to see you again soon

My son, Harry and I had a wonderful 3.5 day trip. Touch of inclement weather did not hamper a thing... Boat was immaculate and up to date. Tara, is a gem, such a nice disposition and a wonderful chef. Her cheesecake, out of this world!! Matt, quite smart and attentive, great guy. Simply the best!
Guests aboard NANA in mid-June, 2016, said:
Dear Matt & Tara,

This was truly a wonderful family vacation, every minute was absolutely perfect,
We can not believe it took 27 years to come back to the BVI.
It is truly such a special place completely unspoiled,
We had so much fun swimming, snorkeling, sailing, eating and even reading.
This past year has been very busy so it was so nice to really relax and almost go off the grid.
Both of you took so much pride in what you do which is such a special thing to observe and we really all appreciate it.
We can not wait to come back to Nana.
Many thanks The O'Brien Family
Guests aboard catamaran NANA in late April, 2016, said:
Dear Matt & Tara

What an amazing week and an honor to celebrate our folks' 40th wedding anniversary-along with the Queen's 90th birthday. We are leaving with incredible memories of our time together as a family, great pictures of these beautiful islands, and new skills of sailing and singing "God Save the Queen".

PERFECT Captain and Chef couple - from the time we stepped on board until we departed - 5 star all around service. Captain Matt had a story for everything and knew the very best snorkel spots, such a fun dry British humor ready with a witty comments. Tara - inspiring meals that were as beautiful as delicious, the joy for your craft shines through each dish and the fine details you perfect in every presentation.

Truly a magical journey for us all!
