Caribbean charter sailing yacht, Antillean, is a lean, green, dream-making machine…
Captain Matthias and Chef/First Mate Amber have put their extensive sailing and hospitality experience to hard work on Antillean’s Caribbean charter sailing yacht to prepare her for your perfect Caribbean charter vacation.
Matthias and Amber are accomplished sailors who have come to love the Caribbean above other areas of the world. “The Caribbean is fabulous for the flavorful food, friendly people, and fun sailing,” says Amber, “There is always something happening, many places to explore, sites to snorkel at, and beautiful white beaches to relax on. The waters are calm, and the wind always fills your sails.”
Captain Matthias has grown up on boats his entire life and genuinely appreciates the sleek beauty Caribbean charter sailing yacht Antillean has to offer. “Antillean is a 50-foot monohull with four staterooms, ensuite heads & showers, and a very comfortable amount of space. She was built for chartering. The design has a welcoming way of letting you right in, allowing for a smooth, comfortable vacation,” he says. And there is plenty of space on her deck to soak in the Caribbean, as Matthias describes, ”Our 15-foot cockpit awning allows for coverage from the sun and the rain. She has plenty of deck space for sunbathing, stargazing, and an easy access swim ladder on the cozy reverse transom.”
Since coming aboard Antillean, Matthias, and Amber have made several improvements, but the one they are most proud of is the solar panels. Amber explains, “Matthias has been an independent genius on board Antillean. He was able to set up the entire system himself and have us running on solar power in no time. This was our first big project on Antillean, and it meant a lot to us because we were being green, being mentioned in the top 5 of the Save the Blue award, and eliminating over 90% of our generator use.”
Caribbean charter sailing yacht Antillean is a stunning vessel on which to enjoy the Caribbean. But it’s Matthias and Amber who make your charter vacation special. They see Antillean and the waters of the Caribbean as their home away from home. And want to share their love for it with you, as Amber elaborates, “The Virgin Islands is our backyard, and we love to play, sail and swim in it! We want to help you create memories that you will never forget.
Whether you want to sail, snorkel, swim, dive, go hiking, relax in a hammock, beech-comb, or do yoga on the beach. Or get into some fun water sports or enjoy the local nightlife. We are here to help you make it all happen! This is your vacation; we want to make your dreams come true.“
Matthias and Amber continue to learn as a way of life. Both hold their 100-ton USCG Captain’s License, and Matthias values information gleaned through experiences. He explains, “I think that, of all the time I have spent on the water, the best part is the knowledge I have gained. Through the people I’ve met, the things I’ve needed to repair, and adventures that I had sailing the Caribbean.”
Amber continues to sharpen her culinary skills by studying with Matthias’s father, an accomplished chef, for over 30 years. “He has been a huge inspiration to me. With his European influence and having worked worldwide, I can learn many techniques,” she says.
