A large u-shaped lounge is the central social area and converts to an elegant space for formal indoor dining. The large galley has a convenient storage console that separates it from the salon.

November 22, 2016 ~ Absolutely Perfect!
Roland & Vanessa;

On behalf of all of us, thank you so much for a wonderful day at Looper Island. Everyone agreed it was not only the highlight of the trip, but of a lifetime! You were both great hosts, lunch was fabulous, and the drinks hit the spot! Everything was absolutely perfect, and we can’t thank you enough.

Hopefully we see you again! Make sure to call me if you’re ever in New Jersey so we can show you the state’s finest coast & beaches from the comfort of an 18 foot Scout.
Thanks again!

November 16-20, 2016 ~ Want to return next year!
Our daughter decided long time ago that she wanted to something special for her 40th birthday. She loves to travel so it had to be something that would take her somewhere. Several things was suggested. She wanted to bring her family and a few close friends on this adventure. The decision fell on a boat trip in the Caribbean. After a lot of research she decided on the " Amazing Lady". And so she was.
Ten of us boarded this beautiful yacht on Wednesday November 16. We met Roland and Vanessa for the first time and we fell in love with them immediately. With only 4 nights on the yacht it was important to utilize that time to its maximum. Roland and Vanessa had it all planned and we loved it. It was perfect for us. It was something for everybody.

The food onboard was excellent. We felt we were dining at the finest restaurant every day. Roland and Vanessa showed a professionalism far beyond what we have expected.

Watching their teamwork in everything onboard was a pleasure. They were always there for us assisting when it was needed or informing us about interesting matters.

We could not have gotten a better crew than those two.
Thanks again Roland and Vanessa for given us an adventure that we never forget.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart & I truly hope our paths cross again.

April 9-16, 2016 - Everything Was Absolutely Perfect
Dear Roland & Vanessa,
This trip was the best. It was educational and fun and we got to do so many fun things like the sling shot! THANK YOU. M.

I think you guys were amazing 1 crew! I was so excited to do the slingshot, tubing and everything else. The stories were crazy but apparently true. Everything was the best, the food, desserts, room and watersports and anything I missed. I will never forget the experience you guys gave us, and I definitely won’t forget you! I love you guys so much! Jax

Roland and Vanessa, Thank you so much for everything – it was an amazing trip and everything was absolutely perfect! You guys are the best, so much fun, the food, the knowledge and especially the laughs made this such a special trip. We will miss you so much! You both had such a positive impact on the kids. They will treasure this experience forever. Jenny

Dear Roland & Vanessa,
What can we say? You both made this week so amazing in every way – your hospitality, the food, showing us sights we had never seen before & many, many laughs! We will treasure these memories forever and we are so grateful for the chance to meet you two. Please come visit us in Connecticut! Hope to see you again soon. Love, Malia & Dave

Roland and Vanessa,
Thank you so much for making this trip so amazing and unforgettable! As our 4th time in the BVI’s, I don’t think it could have been better!! Thank you for all the hard work you did to make this more enjoyable for us! The food was amazing and I loved the water sports. We can’t say thank you enough. Both you and this trip will be missed.

March 26-April 2 2016 - So Special
Thank you Roland & Vanessa for a wonderful week aboard the Amazing Lady! You made it so special. Vanessa’s food and fun and kind nature were so appreciated. We felt completely at ease in Captain Roland’s hands and truly enjoyed all the fun excursions and activities. Thank you also for being so kind and attentive to our daughter. Your humor and inclusion of her was appreciated. Love, the N. Family

17-24 Feb 2016 - Quite Simply the Best
Steve and I had a great sailing trip on the Amazing Lady. Roland and Vanessa are quite simply "the best". They are very knowledgeable, hardworking and fun. They work extremely well together and each bring exceptional and complimentary skills to the table. It is clear that their top priority is their guests' safety and enjoyment. Their knowledge of the BVIs is vast and each were always willing to share as much information as one would want to know. Roland and Vanessa are very attentive and sensitive to the needs of their guests. They are fun to hang with but very low key and only joined in when invited. Roland and Vanessa are both extremely patient and have easy going dispositions. Roland is an exceptional sailor, teacher, diver and drink mixer. Vanessa is an exceptional chef. The food was delicious, creative, healthy and plentiful. She was always willing to share recipes and ingredients.

This was truly the trip of a lifetime for all four couples and each of us want to return to the BVIs and the Amazing Lady sometime in the future. And, we all want Roland and Vanessa to come and stay with us if they are ever in Northern California!
P.S.: The Amazing Lady is a very apt name for a boat that could not have been better designed for comfort and style. She sailed smoothly and held her own one day under very windy and rough sea conditions!

Crew profile:
Captain Roland
Roland has been an avid and competitive boater since he was waist high. He began challenging the surf with the Sea Scouts and Dinghy Racing at school. He went on to earn a living in the corporate world while pursuing his true passion for yachting. He obtained the requisite RYA Yacht Master Off-shore License, bid the corporate world farewell, and launched his career as a Captain of the Sea. He has delivered yachts, including 12 trans-Atlantic crossings, and has sailed more than 100,000 nautical miles.

Roland knows exactly how to inspire guests to have the vacation of their lives aboard his charter yacht. He has been a Charter Captain since 2005, initially aboard a Privilege 48 catamaran based in Antigua and sailing throughout the Caribbean. He enjoys sharing his many passions, kite surfing, cycling, scuba diving, free diving and fishing, with eager guests. As a PADI Dive Master/Rescue Diver with 1000’s of dives, he knows the best spots to experience the wonders of life beneath the sea. His forte is exploring “off the grid”, and to experience the authentic Caribbean.

Chef Vanessa
Vanessa embarked on a live aboard dive vacation in the Red Sea. The experience inspired her to abandon life in the culinary industry and set her course for new horizons. She spent many years in the restaurant industry in countries around the world, from South Africa to Central America to Europe. She successfully owned a coffee shop in the heart of prestigious London-Marylebone Lanenever, but gave it up to follow her passion for life at sea.

Vanessa has always loved the art of cooking. Her Mother was her first inspiration, teaching her as a child to create dishes to please. Her family and friends were foodies. Everyone in her circle was keen on experimenting with new ideas and sharing recipes. Traveling the globe, she became adept at incorporating new ingredients and methods into her menus. Guests rave about her cooking, which is always fresh and innovative. She can also delight the palate of guests on restricted diets, such as vegan or gluten free. When not in the galley, she enjoys a range of high-energy sports, hiking, skiing, river rafting, kayaking and scuba diving, and enthusiastically shares tips and talents with her charter guests.

Roland and Vanessa are charming hosts, vibrant, energetic, and with an unfailing sense of humor. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, they have known each other for 20 + years and were married in February 2010. They have sailed throughout the Caribbean since 2004 and have many delightful stories to share. Charter Amazing Lady and you will easily understand why their list of repeat charter guests just keeps getting longer.

Both are non-smokers.
