Tim & Stephany Mauer
Tim and Stephany discovered the BVI's in 2000 when they experienced their very first crewed charter. It was a special trip, as one of their stops included the Bitter End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda where they tied the knot. The experience of sailing on the islands was completely intoxicating. It changed the course of their lives, and a 10 year plan was hatched! They made it a goal to buy a boat and come back to sail the beautiful Caribbean islands! From then, all vacations were spent sailing the Caribbean waters and summers were spent sailing on Lake Michigan in their home town of Chicago. In the autumn of 2013, they found their catamaran in Rhode Island and sailed her down to the Caribbean where they spent a year upgrading her systems and exploring the islands as far south as Grenada. They are happy to welcome you on board Endless Pleasure!
Tim Mauer - Captain
I was born in Wisconsin and grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan. Summers where short, so I took full advantage of living on the water canoeing, kayaking, and learning to sail Hobie Cats on the local rivers and lakes. Upon graduating from high school, I attended Saint Louis University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology. I paid my way through college working as a phlebotomist and a lab technician.
Shortly after graduation, I was presented with an opportunity that changed the direction of my career. I left the medical field, to run events for an experiential marketing company. I had the opportunity to work with Fortune 100 companies developing integrated marketing programs that cut through the competitive clutter. Throughout the years I moved up the ranks, and eventually became the CEO ofRelay Worldwide, a Publicis Groupe company, managing offices on three different continents. I helped build a full-service experiential and sponsorship agency focusing on innovation and building proprietary information management systems. ..read more
After 25 years in the the corporate world, I happily adjusted my course and now live at a much slower pace on a sailing catamaran with Steph, my wife and first mate of 14 years.
Stephany Mauer - First Mate/Chef
My childhood years were spent growing up on shores of Brasil, Canary Islands, and the US and the UK. It was on the ocean and its beaches where I learned to swim, make new friends, learn new languages, and eventually sail.
My family settled down in Texas, where I finished high school, and attended college. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts, I got the most awesome job at an event marketing company designing and implementing promotions and traveling the country. The job was demanding, but allowed me to use both my operational and creative skills. It reignited my desire to travel even more and see the world. I met my husband, Tim, during that timeframe, and was fortunate he had the same desire for adventure!
Sailing has afforded us the opportunity to travel slowly and really take in our surroundings. My favorite thing do on shore is try local food and shop for fresh ingredients. This ends up influencing my cuisine in tasty, interesting ways!
Because of the diversity of my upbringing, I grew up loving different cultures, food, music, and experiences. I enjoy hosting people from all over the world, and sharing stories over a great meal.
I am proficient in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and English.

Tim and Stephany were tireless, helpful, interesting and sensitive to our needs. We could not have asked for a better crew. Their warmth, knowledge and willingness to share insights into their lives made the trip a very satisfying adventure. We have never received so much attention.
It is clear they take great pride in Endless Pleasure as it was very clean, well maintained and ready to sail under all kinds of conditions. The steady winds in the Grenadines and many hatches combined to keep the boat well ventilated. Air conditioning was turned on when needed and worked very well.
We have never had a full time chef before – what a great experience. Third crew member JoJo continually worked to anticipate our needs and was more than willing to accommodate our diverse dietary requests. Collectively, they provisioned the boat with foods and drinks that we requested after spending an hour with us on the phone in advance of the trip. JoJo’s fusion expertise made many memorable meals and the rum punch was a crowd pleaser.
The itinerary evolved as we gained experience with the area and the opportunities available. We watched a leatherback turtle crawl up on the beach, dig a hole, lay her eggs, cover them up and head back out to sea. We caught tuna and ate sashimi. Tim & Steph did all the work laying out the line, cleaning the fish and handing off the meat to JoJo to apply her magic. We went snorkeling in many places, and went ashore to explore numerous islands, which led to a pattern of snorkeling, sailing, fishing, anchoring, exploring and sometimes waterskiing, paddle boarding and tubing. They took pictures of us as a family in many places and gave us the file with the pics at the end of the trip.
This is our first experience with chartering and we were unsure about the process and what to expect. It turned out to be a very straightforward process and John’s advice about what to expect and effort to facilitate contact with Endless Pleasure was very helpful. We will pass on information about Sailing Directions and Endless Pleasure to friends that are interested in sailing.
The end of the charter came too quick, we felt that we were just getting into a rhythm and could have spent many more days with Tim and Steph. We are interested in staying in touch with them and following their adventures and hope that our paths cross again.
