May 2018
Our cruise on the Xenia 62 was absolutely fabulous!!

The boat was immaculate and very comfortable. Matt was a skillful captain, good bartender, and he was a great entertainer for our grandchildren. Tara was an exceptional chef. All of our meals, and the presentation of them, far exceeded our expectations. Our only complaint is that the trip was too short.

Thank you. We will return!

Dear Chrizaan and Jos

We have been looking forward to returning to you and Xenia but never expected to surpass our last amazing trip. It has been an unbelievable two weeks/ Exploring the BVIs with you has been breathtaking. Seeing it all afresh with Granny and Grandpa was something we never imagined. Thank you for finding so many stunning snorkeling opportunities- the BVIs are so alive with beautiful fish and unusual creatures. We have loved being with you again and thank you for all your efforts to make our trip so perfect- treasure hunt for the kids, crazy noodle and keeping our glasses full. Chrizaan your food was delicious! Ive been inspired!
Please, please, please visit us, how ever long the wait we would love to have you.
Wishing you boat the very best for your future. Lots of Love, Katie and Pete

Jos and Chrizaan

Thank you so much for a fantastic week in paradise! Both of you, as well as the yacht, exceeded our expectations in every way. Jos, thanks for driving our boys around to the Willy T (x4), tubing and keeping the two teenagers so well entertained throughout the trip. Chrizaan, your cooking was beyond amazing. Every meal better than the restaurants we have been to. You both made our trip so special and made sure we made the most of it. We couldnt imagine a better experience than the fantastic one we had with you.
The Ritters and McLaughlins
25th Feb - 4th March
Dear Jos and Chrizaan

Thanks so much for showing us such a great time aboard the Xenia! Your hospitality went over and above. Everything was perfect-the accommodations, the crew and especially the food! We never ate so much in our lives, but found ourselves always looking forward to the next meal!
Jos you chartered a perfect course for our trip. We managed to get everywhere we wanted to go even though there was swell. And you always got us the best spot to anchor wherever we went. You all made this the best sail we ever had. You are both very organized and efficient but also fun loving and tolerant of our craziness. We all had a blast and would love to go with you again sometime. Thanks again for everything!
February 2017
It's hard to know where to start !

Our trip on Xenia so far exceeded our expectations that we were planning to do it again before we even left the boat.

First, Jos and Chrizaan were amazing. So attentive, always pleasant and accommodating. They made the trip. Their warmth, professionalism and attention to every detail was second to none.

Chrizaan's cooking was incredible. We loved every single dish that she made.
We all wanted to take her home with us!

The boat was perfect , too. Beautiful spacious state rooms with more than ample storage. A separate shower and toilet area was a nice surprise.

Jos asked the right questions to allow him to plan our days in a way that gave us exactly what we wanted - each and every day.

We travel quite a bit and I can honestly say that this vacation was one of the best vacations we ever had.

Lynn Connaughty
1th - 18th August 2016
WE have been on many family trips, but this trip exceeded our expectations! This was due to both of you! Your warm hospitality and attention to detail surpassed any 5 star resort we have been to!
AS you saw by our constantly cleaned plates, your meals were extraordinary. You keep Ed smiling with the never ending bowls of chocolate Haagen Daz, and not one but two chocolate cakes! We enjoyed watching Jen and Charlie wake skate. Your patience and ability to teach new things made it look easy. Thank you for finding Lisas ring and escorting us through the caves. We always felt safe and comfortable on Xenia. Thank you for all your hard work and efforts. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. You are an awesome couple!
Love. The Longs

Chrizaan and jos
What an amazing trip with 2 of the most gracious crew and now friends. From our initial greeting i knew that we will be well cared for. From seeing all the sights to gaining at least 10lbs from all chrizaans fabulous meals. What a gift you two are to the Xenia. The passion you two have for making sure that each person on the trip had a memorable experience will stay with me for ever.

We look forward to another trip next year. Im hoping for many years of happiness to you both. It is very deserving for a couple who works very hard at pleasing others. Thank you for an amazing holiday with friends.

Stay well,
June 2016
The trip was wonderful. The boat and crew fully met and exceeded our expectations. Jos and Chrizaal were wonderful. The food was fantastic. None of us had any complaints whatsoever. Thanks for all your help in rescheduling. The weather was perfect! HD
April 2016
Dear chrizaan and jos
After a week like this the hardest part is to say goodbye. Our big dream about sailing the caribbean with all our parents and kids came true.
You made this week spectacular. Every minute of our time was infused with your loving care and endless effort to come up with the most brilliant itinerary to visit the most amazing spots. Chrizaan every dish you served was a master piece. Every drink had a special touch. Jos your artistic video and photos will be the best memory of this unforgettable week. We all want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
March 2016
Thank you for your kind follow-up note. I know I can speak for every member of our group in saying that our trip was perfect in every respect. A few thoughts and observations:

Xenia 62 was in immaculate condition, hospital clean, well organized, well stocked and everything running as designed in excellent order. It was spacious, most comfortable and luxurious. The owner can take great comfort in knowing his yacht is being well run and well maintained by Jos and Chrizaan.

Most importantly we must compliment Jos and Chrizaan for their role. If one were looking for the perfect couple to represent the yacht's owner, to serve as a duet of ambassadors for perfection in every respect, that would be Jos and Chrizaan.

Jos and Chrizaan made the trip a memory of a lifetime. In some order of chronology, let me begin by saying they made great contact with us prior to our arrivals, gave excellent directions, were waiting for us upon our arrival and welcomed us aboard Xenia 62 with snacks and drinks. It just kept getting better each day.

Jos is a gentle giant, kind, professional, in-command, attentive, proficient and polite. He works extremely well as a team with Chrizaan. Often that is not always the case and especially in close quarters over extended periods of time it can be difficult to be on top of your game each day and manage the work with each other. They are clearly a great team together and it showed.

Jos is clearly well respected in each location we stopped at and was excellent in handling and guiding us through Customs clearings. Some would have merely dropped us off and pointed to the Customs office and left. Jos did not. He guided us through the process and clearly was well respected by the Customs officers. This too speaks very well of Xenia 62 and its owner. The ramifications of that can't be underestimated.

Chrizaan was simply over the top! Kind, gracious and fun. Each meal she prepared was a 6 star presentation and culinary delight. Not one menu was repeated!!

Her servings were ample, the quality outstanding, presentations were a work of art (so much so we started taking pictures of each meal as she and Jos served them to us). We were amazed at how skilled Chrizaan was to prepare essentially 30 meal servings per day (the eight of us and the two of them) at a 6 star level, each meal served on-time and prepared in a relatively small galley. That takes considerable planning, skill, coordination and timing to have everyone's meal so perfect each and every time.

They also were kind enough to have some birthday decorations and a special meal for two in our group who had birthdays during our trip. It's that kind of extra-mile attention to detail and kindness that separates our experience from the competition.

She serviced our rooms and kept them spotless in a way that if you were not focused on her, she completed those tasks before you even noticed.

Suffice to say both Jos and Chrizaan were up well before any of us and went to bed after we did. We are the all members of the Jos and Chrizaan Fan Club. They breed loyalty, dedication and repeat business.

It is clear that Jos and Chrizaan take great pride and pleasure in their work and that benefited each of us on our trip.

We simply can't say enough good things about our entire experience. We were so impressed and got along so well with Jos and Chrizaan that we invited them to stay with us should they ever find themselves in the Los Angeles area. That sums up our experience and respect for them. The owner of Xenia 62 is very lucky to have them as his representatives.

March 2016
Dear Broker,
Have to tell you, you knocked it out of the park on this one! Everything is what we hoped it would be and more. Jos and Chrizaan are lovely, and food and hospitality and professionalism ideal. We are having a wonderful time and this boat and its quality are over the top. Thank you so very much for the recommendation. We are already talking about doing it again when the kids are in school so we would have more flexibility on timing and prices.

Thank you again for checking, it has been spectacular so far!

All the best
New Years 2015/16
Sorry for the slow response. Were back to reality.

Our holiday on Xenia 62 was fantastic! It exceeded every one of our expectations. The boat is beautiful. The accommodations were perfect for our family. Jos and Chrizaan are wonderful hosts and very nice people. They are very professional, knowledgable, personable, and friendly. They took great care of us.

Jos and Chrizaan know the BVIs like the back of their hands. We planned a route every day, sailing to a beautiful spot for lunch and snorkeling, and then on to a perfect anchorage for the evening.

Jos skippers the boat effortlessly, as if hes done it all his life. He put Xenia 62 in the best part of the anchorages for whatever activity we intended to do. Chrizaan is a wonderful chef. Meals were five star. We couldnt figure out how such delicious food could come from such a small galley! She modified the meal plan to accommodate one of our childrens eating preferences without skipping a beat. Our eldest son paid Chrizaan the highest complement by asking if my wife could get the recipes and cook like this at home.

The whole experience was so wonderful that we didnt want to leave when our week was over. Surely well be back at some point.

Thanks for helping us put it together.

Take care,
February 2015
Being boaters and loving the water, we dreamed of a caribbean adventure in the British Virgin Islands to celebrate our beloved husband and fathers 70th Birthday. Our dreams came true on the sleek, elegant, relaxed and secure Xenia catamaran.
The Yacht, salon and staterooms far exceeded our expectations and were more like you would find on a boutique cruise ship, linens and amenities superior. the lustrous teakwood thorough out glowed with a honey hue, rich and warm,
as were the crew.
Gareth the perfect host and admirable and steadfast captain, keeping us in calm and silky azure waters and picturesque beaches and ports, no cruise ships in sight.
Kristine, the consummate hostess and chef, created epicurean delights from scratch with just the right fusion of sweet and savory, perfect medley of nutrition and flavor. The table was set elegantly each night with an array of colors and designs.
We expected a great trip but they both went above and beyond even taking underwater pictures of the family with colorful sea life making our experience a Magical Trip of a Lifetime.
Thank you, Champ, Peggy Sue, Casey, Christine, Gary, Juliet, and Emily
New Year 2014/15
Me and my family are one day back from the best family vacation of my life and want to thank you for your help in arranging a fantastic trip and connecting me & my family with Gareth and Kristine. Having never chartered a boat before, I wasn't sure what to expect but what I do know is that Xenia is a tremendous yacht and much more importantly, Gareth and Kristine are tremendous. They are true professionals who struck an incredible balance of knowledgable boat captains, safety marshals, incredible chef (Kristine in particular) sailing instructors, friendly yet firm when needed with kids, and generally very conscientious about all of our needs from drinks, to scuba, to water skiing, etc. We all would want them to join us in any game or event as they were so fun and interesting to be with. While always flexible, they also always had a good plan in place with several options depending upon our prevailing desires and energy level. Additionally, I had a personal goal of learning some sailing details and Gareth would continue to ask me to participate and show me aspects of sailing this beautiful boat when I'm sure it would have been easier to do it all himself.

While I haven't chartered before, I am also in the service business and I know they delivered tremendous, world class service and as such I hope I have the opportunity to work again with you and your company and will hope to have the good fortune of seeing Gareth & Kristine again in the future.

Many thanks,
Topher Callahan
Christmas 2014
We are out of words to express what a wonderful charter you put us in. First Gareth and Kristine are extremely fun and professional. Never before have we had 17 exquisite meals in a row. What an accomplishment!
The boat has a beautiful teak interior and is kept in mint condition.
Activities were numerous and fun for both generations in our family.
Each of us has voted for their individual preference:
Flexibility in schedule (Vanessa)
The anchoring locations (Maria)
The views (Ana)
The sailing part and helping with the sails and anchor (Nick)
The Soggy Dollar (Olivier)
Water skiing and hiking in Salt Point (Helena)
Kit surfing and the Bitter End (Phil)
Seeing the entire family so very happy (Jose)
We could go and on but we don't want Gareth to get too much of a big head, ha.
Thanks for creating these memorable moments for all of us
We wish you the very best
From all of us

We loved everything about Xenia: The boat design, the comfortable cabins, the sailing, the lovely beaches, and above all, Garreth & Kristine attention and friendliness. Every moment was perfect, the food was wonderful, words cannot describe this magical week.
We will be there again next May and it is our intention to repeat the cruise on December 2015.
This was the best of our eight catamaran trips.
Best Regards,
Fernando, Marcia, Antonio, Irma, Marcio, Claudia, Luiz & Lucia.
Gareth and Kristine,
Each time we come back to the BVIs we think, how could this trip top the last one. Well you succeeded. The food stood out as the best EVER! The sailing on perfect winds was the best ever! Because everything was seen to by you guys we were truly able to relax, play games, and enjoy our family vacation. It is so difficult to disembark, but know that a little piece of each of us will remain with you.
Thank you for helping me make this our best trip yet. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Until then, our prayers and best wishes for safe travels and a wonderful life
Your friends,
The Texas C's.
Kristine and Gareth,
Our deep and sincere thanks for creating a spectacular memory of such a beautiful place. From Normal Island, Peter Island, New Years with you, and Anageda, it was all spectacular.
The food, your skills and sailors and hosts, and all you did for us were much appreciated.
Thanks, may fair winds always bless your way
Gareth and Kristine,
I found myself wondering how I could make all this wonderful adventure continue! You both are consummate professionals with great poise and style to boot. Karen and I will remember your great care an attention for many years to come! It is rare to not have any complaints about a vacationeverything was perfection. Kristine, your culinary creations could stand with the best restaurants and your attention to individual preferences was superb. Gareth, it was very clear early on our voyage that you love sailing and are an expert in all aspects of seamanship. You guys are a great team and we felt like royalty under your care. We love you guys

Gareth and Kristine,
Thank you so much for an amazing trip! Gareths love of sailing was wonderful to see and made this a true sailing adventure. Kristines contribution to the trip was unbelievable- the meals coming from the galley-everyone- was beyond wonderful! Especially considering she had to deal with two children (that eat nothing), a vegetarian, and a gluten free in the group- truly an amazing feat!
Thanks both of you have made this wedding trip for my son the best we have ever had.

Wedding charter
NOTE: Guest comments from last boat Gareth and Kristin were on by the name of BLISS.

Thank you so much for such an amazing trip!!!It was so much better than we could ever have hoped for, and not just because it was Marc and Mels wedding, but in large part because of your expertise in matching each group with the right boat and crew. All the yachts were spectacular and everyone really praised their crews all week. However, I need to put in a special plug for Gareth and Kristine on Bliss.

Ric and I have done several charters in the past, from bare boating to crewed and NONE came close to this trip. From the moment we stepped on board all our expectations were surpassed.

Though Bliss is a gorgeous and extremely comfortable catamaran, my biggest praise for the success of the trip goes to the crew themselves.

Gareth takes great pride in Bliss and keeps her in pristine condition. He really went out of his way to make everyone feel safe especially while trying new young grandchildren and a close friend learned to snorkel on this trip and he was always right alongside with the dingy to ease their fears. His love of sailing and knowledge of the area made for a great trip. We routinely sailed more than the other boats in our group and he brought us to a few different spots he knew we would enjoy when the itinerary with the others allowed. One night we moored at Monkey Point.we were the only ones there, the stars were spectacular and snorkeling was the best of the trip.

Poor Kristine had her hands full with our group (2 children that eat nothing, 1 vegetarian, and 1 no flour and sugar).Somehow she came up with the most amazing meals that fit our restrictions and that EVERYONE loved, even the kids ate better than I have ever seen. Ric was particularly impressed with all the desserts and sweet extras she made like greeting us with fresh chocolate chip cookies when we came back from a swim. Kristine is truly a top notch chef and her meals were better than most high end restaurants. I really wanted to take her home with me.

But most of all EVERYTHING they did for us they did so willingly and with a it was no problem at all. They were both great with the kids and us oldies too.They just made us all feel special and pampered all week. Gareth and Kristine are an exceptional team and are a great asset to Bliss.

Dearest Gareth and Kristine
Thank you is an understatement. You both treated me like royalty and were so patient and kind looking after the non sailor and at time non swimmer. I will have to go to the tailor to add inches to my waistband the food sun, wind, and laughter will be remembered always. Thank you both ever so much and I thank the yacht, she is a lovely ship and she kept us safe and sound.
Happy sailing, love you all

Kristine and Gareth

Thank you for an awesome week! Both of you went out of your way to take special care of us. The children will never forget the tubing, cooking, snorkeling, kayaking, and detailed attention they received. We wouldnt think of chartering a boat again without you. Great Lobster!!!!!
See you next time

Reviews for Xenia with previous crew:

Jos and Chrizaan were amazing. They were very knowledgeable about the BVI and we did at least 3 or 4 different things each day. They were extremely pleasant and accommodating to all members of our party. The crew can make an enormous difference to the success of your week and our week was the very best.

Xenia was immaculate and very well cared for. The rooms were very spacious and there was a great back deck where we ate all our meals. Loved the separate showers for each room. King and Queen beds were awesome. The boat was very quiet, you couldn't hear stuff going on up on the decks in your bedroom.

Chrizaan is an amazing chef. Every meal was delicious and looked amazing. We all felt like we were dining in a five star restaurant each meal. She cooked all our favorite things.

We feel like we saw everything we wanted to see. Each day was customized by captain Jos to our desires.

Our family thought everything about Gareth & Kristine was fantastic. They literally waited on us every hour we were awake. We felt guilty because of how hard they were working all the time. They absolutely understood our needs and concerns: From picky eaters with the kids to Mindi being concerned about rough seas. They continually optimized the itinerary to take into account potential weather and also learned more about our preferences as the first couple of days developed. We can’t imagine anything more they could have done.

Being aboard the Xenia, a Privilege 61.5 foot boat, was clearly a “top of the line” yacht! As we drove around other, similar sized boats during the week – we came to realize how “high end” the Privilege line is: More classic wood, less plastic, teak flooring on the outside vs just fiberglass, more high end electronics (Apple TV), TV’s in every state room, etc, etc. A very, very nice yacht!

Kristine was incredible! It was always a sit down, being served meal. From others that had chartered on other boats, I was expecting some food to be “set out, sorta buffet style”. The food was great each and every time. We commented a few times how we want her recipes and that she needs to publish a cook book! Everything seemed to be from scratch, example: she personally “glazed” pecans with her own candied mixture for a salad one day. The list is too numerous to mention.

It was just a wonderful experience and Gareth and Kristine were great! We can’t say enough good things. We definitely will call you if we consider chartering again.

Reviews for Matt & Tara aboard previous yachts:

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.
