Meet the Crew

Bret & Mallory

BRET VAN RODEN, CAPTAIN

Bret was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and was raised hunting and fishing throughout his youth. He graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Finance and Economics. After a few years in the world of finance, he purchased a 41 Ketch named Broken Compass and sailed around the world for three years with his brother and a Siberian husky. They notably sailed double-handed across the Pacific without an auxiliary engine or autopilot. After crossing the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic oceans he moved to Pennsylvania to run operations for the family gift and stationery business. He has been engaged to speak publicly for business groups and a 2014 Tedx event hosted by Semester at Sea.

Bret founded Broken Compass LLC., a fishing tackle company, which debuted in the 2015 Annapolis sailboat show. As a licensed captain and natural mariner, he now displays his years of sea experience guiding guests around the Caribbean aboard Tellstar.

Bret has a passion for diving and is accredited with being an AIDA 2 star free diver that can hit 150 feet!

MALLORY PATTERSON, CHEF

Chef Mallory Patterson brings an extraordinary cooking ability as well as a delightful energy to the crew of Tell Star. She grew up on the East Coast and received her degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management from Johnson & Wales University. She then went on to manage several restaurants and run her own catering company before she made her transition to the yachting industry. Today she has raised the bar for outstanding cuisine in the charter yacht market. In her words, I love it, because I now am able to do all of my favorite things: cook, travel and sail...read more

At the 2014 Newport Charter Yacht Show Crew Competition, Mallory knocked it out of the park, winning both the Healthy Beverage and Sunset Canap Challenges. Her former employer can't say enough good things about her. Mallory somehow delivers a never-ending cavalcade of delicious, new recipes inspired by the freshest, local ingredients. Her meals have been a constant source of universal delight to a long list of discriminating guests and clients. She has exceeded the culinary standards set before her by chefs from some of the best restaurants in New York. Despite her extraordinary cooking ability, Mallory's personality may be her most impressive quality. She gets along with everyone and is a lovely and positive addition to social life aboard.

When she's not cooking up delicacies in the galley, she enjoys interior decorating, and her talent has enhanced Tellstar's interior decor. She also enjoys many hobbies including sailing, water skiing, skiing, snorkeling, swimming, reading, and sewing. She is also a certified PADI Rescue Diver.

AMANDA HYATT, STEW/ DECKHAND

Amanda has excelled in the service industry for more than eight years. During her career she has traveled extensively and made lifelong friends along the way. Her radiant smile and genuine warmth make guests feel immediately at ease aboard Tellstar. She’s a natural with small children and when there’s a bit of spare time she’s always keen to teach the older ones paddle boarding and surfing techniques. Even if you thought you’d never give watersports a try, Amanda will show you how fun and easy it can be.

Amanda has a serious side when it comes to caring for guests aboard Tellstar. She anticipates the needs of guests before anyone has to ask. She keeps everything immaculate and organized. She has always enjoyed communicating with people of different cultures and ethnicities. She earned a

Bachelors degree in Spanish and she speaks conversational Italian. Wherever guests come from, Amanda will have no problem making them feel at home. A charter aboard Tellstar is a truly privileged experience to which Amanda adds sparkle and joy.

April 2017 Charter ~ Note from the Broker
I just got off the phone with the charterers who sang your praises so nicely I got goose bumps!
They called on speaker phone to tell me what a truly wonderful experience it was.

The best vacation, wonderful experience, educational, awesome, the itinerary, the diving - Bret you are an excellent dive instructor, Mallory you cooking was amazing and a true culinary experience. Amanda how nice you are and your always friendly smile, so pleasant and how you wouldnt let them lift a finger... How nice the boat was.
Mrs. said there were tears and hugs at the end and the only negative comment they had was that they are now fully depressed being off the boat.

Great trip!

The crews were top notch. They worked well together and all very accommodating.

We used a charter service, "fly the whale" for the transport to Staniel. The sea plane made it so easy.

Thanks so much for all the help!

We all came on this trip with the same idea: to relax with our spouses and each other in this beautiful part of the world. We had no idea what to expect from the boat, the crew, the weather, etc. We could not have predicted how profoundly you (Bret, Mallory, Susie) have affected all of us this week and how grateful we are for the tremendous effort, talent, skill, and care you have given us. YOU have made this trip what we all wanted it to be and we could not have enjoyed it more. We all look forward to many more trips, as long as you all will be there.

THANK YOU.

Mallory, Chad, and Bret,
We had a fantastic week aboard the Tell Star. I have to say it was the most adventurous vaca ever. Between swimming & scuba with the sharks and hiking through mangroves, we managed to still have time to relax with the iguanas and drink the wine! We cant wait to hopefully see you all again next year.

Note from broker:
The guests had a fantastic time on board Tell Star. They said Mallory was amazing and they wanted to take her home with them. Thank you so much!

Guest poems:
I left my job, my duties, and my salary
To have a week of the most incredible food
All prepared by the beautiful Mallory.
I left my jeans, my make up, my jewelry and hair stylist
So I could be guided by the magnificent Tyler.
I left my apartment, my routine, my kids and my dad
So I could sail for a while with Captain Chad.
You made this vacation wonderful, never took us astray
Except for that one day stranded in Hatchet Bay.
But in all seriousness, from the bottom of my heart
Tell Star is amazing, the Bahamas are beautiful
Yet Mallory, Tyler, and Chad are the very best part!!!
Thank you,
Julie

Floating, sidelong glance at the
Joyous fiery sunrise passed
The hell hole of Hatchet Bay
We dream infinite leisure, sharks no
Matter, Chad and Tyler manage the sea
And our lofty expectations simultaneously
Whilst Mallory plies us with pure
Loving gastronomy & immaculate joy!
Mario & Susie

I eat all over the world, but I am never quite as happy as when I am basking on the Tellstar with Chef Mallory in charge of all things delicious. Chef Mal makes healthy tasty sexy food that makes the Tellstar and her kitchen one of my fave destinations in the world, wherever it floats .. as often as I can be there, I am there.

Wow! What an incredible experience this week! The TellStar crew made our 25th anniversary party unforgettable. The food, the water sports, the scenery, and the hospitality were far beyond our hopes and expectations. Thank you for such a fun time! We hope our paths cross again. Steve and Mary-Kay

It's hard to articulate our experience except to say perfect location, perfect yacht and most importantly perfect crew. Chad, Mallory and Tyler are so pleasant and so organized. They anticipated all of our needs and treated us better than any resort. We'll always remember our 25th anniversary in the BVI. The experiences and awesome food and drinks will fuel our stories to others for years. Thank you guys! Becky and Marty.

Feedback to broker:
Our trip couldn't have been any more fabulous. The crew made it more than special and we feel like we've made new friends!!! Their professionalism, knowledge, hospitality, and the amazing culinary expertise of Mallory were unsurpassed. And, of course ... the fun factor!!! Thank you for turning around a not so good situation and making it such a memorable and wonderful time for us! I will not hesitate to recommend my friends to you but bear in mind that they will want to sail with Tell Star!!!

Xmas charter 2014 BVI
Excerpts from letter written to boat owner:
I have two sons, 19 and 17. I wanted them to have a great time with tons of activities. I read about Chad, Tyler and Mallory and loved your boat so this seemed like a good fit. It was beyond my optimism. You have real live jewels with these guys! My son and Chad caught fish that was on the table an hour later prepared by Tyler. When we were in Anegada, Tyler brought delicious spiny lobster for dinner. He worked so hard, plus entertaining us. Chad is the consummate Captain. Very dedicated, and available for us to enjoy all of his ideas, vast travel experience and take us on water activities.

You know these men well, but I am so pleased that I want you to hear just how great they are onboard. Of course, they are both darlingas well as intelligent, educated and full of ideas. We are a very social threesome and they joined in with us. As a mom, I loved their participation because I was able to have some down time to myself.

Your boat was new, immaculate and sophisticated. We all thought it was the nicest one we had ever chartered. Thank you for making available the the best trip ever. We did not want to leave! Marcie

When I spoke with my client he was still in vacation mode. He said they had such a fabulous time that it is hard to get back in the "work' mode. He sent me photos that the crew took and it seems like everyone was having fun! Dancing on the beach kept them entertained. They are happy with the trip and don't be surprised if they come back!
I can tell you they are all still basking in happiness!

9th Anniversary Charter 2014
Chad and Tyler's love of life and adventure is infectious and their epic experiences from around the world are positively inspiring. They were up for everything we desired and showed us plenty of phenomenal scenery and activities along the way, including teaching us an awesomely addictive beach game. Kayaking, snorkeling, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, paddle boarding, sailing - you name it, we did it - sometimes in combination! They are avid fisherman, so chances are high you'll savor some freshly caught seafood deliciously prepared by Ty.

Chad makes the best painkiller in the islands and a pretty mean margarita to boot, so watch out or you might end up jumping off the roof of Willie T's! We enjoyed swapping stories, relaxing, and most especially remembering what's truly significant in life.

We cannot thank these extraordinary brothers enough for making our 9th anniversary a genuinely incredible experience and we look forward to sharing adventures together again soon.
