MEET YOUR CREW:

Captain Igor was born in Europe and developed his passion for the Ocean sailing on Mediterranean, Adriatic and Black Seas and dreams of the Caribbean and Trade Wind sailing was always in his sights.

He grew up in a circus family which took him traveling around the world and finally settling in Las Vegas as a young adult where he eventually took the decision to pursue his longtime passion and return to sailing. He initially began building sailing vessels and after some time, set sail from the Gulf of Mexico and made his way all the way to the Caribbean.

He fell in love with the adventure and exploration of the beautiful Caribbean islands with their deep history and vibrant culture. Loving the Caribbean area so much he decided to settle here permanently. He believes the important part of a charter vacation is for guests to truly connect with the beauty of the islands, the ocean, nature and all it has to offer.

He has been a captain in the USVI for 10 years meeting guest´s expectations of a dream charter vacation.

Igor is thrilled to be able to share his passion for sailing and the beautiful USVI with you.



CHEF ASHLEY AND MEGHAN - Ashley and Meghan trade off during the season. Both are super accomplished chefs.

Chef Ashley is originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, and is the oldest of five girls. She has been a visual and culinary artist nearly all her life, often painting sailboats, dolphins, and island-scapes, as well as preparing creative & delicious meals for her family & friends. She began her career in high-end dining at age eighteen and, in the Spring of 2001, moved to St. John, USVI and began to sail.

The first five years she spent on St. John full time: swimming, hiking, painting, preparing & serving amazing cuisine in the evening, and, as often as possible, sailing with some of the best sailors in the world. Regattas, weekends to Jost, and countless trips out and back, prepared Ashley for her first offshore trip from St. John to Venezuela, which she made in the summer of 2005. Soon thereafter she realized that yacht charters would be the perfect way to combine her love of sailing and her knowledge of dining and service.

In the fall of 2006, Ashley moved aboard a hundred- and seventy-foot schooner and began her career in yachting. She has been a stewardess, deckhand, first-mate and chef on mono-hauls, catamarans, and motor yachts, from forty feet to a hundred and forty feet, from South America to New England. She has earned her USCG 50T Masters License as well as her 200hr Yoga Teaching Certification. She enjoys be able sharing her love of food, sailing, yoga and the Virgin Islands with her guests.

Her training in the craft of cuisine and the grace of entertaining comes from her years of cooking and service experience in fine-dining restaurants. American, French, Italian, Japanese, Hispanic, bistro, beach-front, steakhouse, you name it; she learned ingredients, preparations, presentation, portion, pairing, table-setting, and service etiquette. For several summers, she kept a large organic vegetable garden and is very much a “gardener-chef” and her plates are fresh, vibrant, creative and healthful.

Ashley´s years of experience exploring and sailing, combine with her passion for cooking and attention to detail, allows her to create exceptional experiences for her guests. She loves what she does and loves to share her passions with others.

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Chef Meghan is a self-proclaimed Experience Manager. She began her Virgin Island experiences at a young age as a charter guest annually sailing the Caribbean with her brother and father. There was a deep rooted reason why she cried when she would have to leave the boat at the end of their vacation, so she turned her love of chartering into a career.

Growing up, Meghan´s mother owned a restaurant in Hidden Valley Lake. Meghan worked every role from the front of the house to the kitchen. Graduating to city living and fine dining in college and then being recruited by the talent director for Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment. The philosophy and education centered around the philosophy ´We have a live audience every night. Attention to detail is key to getting an applause at the end of the meal.´

Meghan´s ´center stage´ charisma furthered her career in the corporate arena as a traveling sales and technology trainer for Zillow Group. Training customer experience while experiencing world class restaurants and extending her travel and palate to India, Vietnam, Thailand, Africa and Europe.

When Covid changed the world, Meghan spent more time mastering her craft in the kitchen and decided to change her climate to the Caribbean. She worked for Virgin Islands Ecotour as a guide as well as a travel agent before returning to her true passion of chartering. Expanding on the principles of her education within Culinary Entertainment of ´People come here to celebrate life,´ Meghan excels at understanding her guests dietary delights and wows them in presentation and palate.

Anastasia Guest Reviews

The week was amazing

Ryan and Lesli,
We cannot thank you enough for the hospitality shown to us on the Anastasia! Amongst the painkillers, shooters, beer and AWESOME meals, you each helped us to expand our horizons and to focus on what really matters. We each tried new experiences above and below the water, and none of this would be possible without your kindness, warmth and support. We also learned a lot about ourselves, especially as we joined as one family for the first time. We’re honored to include you as a part of that family too! You made the week so amazing, thank you so much for everything!
Wishes for smooth sailing ahead, David, Elizabeth, Katie, Kelli, Nick, Bryan and Rachel

Magical Trip

Lesli and Ryan,
We had an absolute magical trip aboard the Anastasia. We could not have asked for a better captain and first mate. Amazing crew! You brough the magic and for that we cannot be more thankful. You made our trip a snorkel-seafari – turtles, eels, sharks, enormous bait ball, starfish, trumpet fish, parrot fish and so much more. Your guidance and watch over the family was hugely and gratefully appreciated. AMAZING meals and of course, the cocktails and game playing made us look forward to every night! We will not forget Lovango Beach Club, Lime Out Tacos or Dinghys on Honeymoon! Fishbowl game, catch phrase and cards. If you are ever in Vail Valley or STL MO, you know how to find us!
Thanks again. Love, Melissa, Chris, Corbin, Jenn, Ellie & Brooke

April 2021 USVI only charter

It was nice to talk to you today. I wanted to follow up to our phone conversation to let you know in writing that Ryan and Leslie were outstanding. They were organized and we felt safe and well cared for during the entire trip. We appreciated their patience with our 5 children. Lesli’s cooking and food presentation was amazing. Ryan’s skills handling the boat were terrific. We would highly recommend Ryan and Leslie to other families considering a Charter.
Best,
Bernadette S.

Your warmth, kindness and passion for sharing the beauty and fun of the USVI have made this a trip of a lifetime. You have “raised the bar” for all future vacations! I can’t even begin to express our gratitude for all you’ve done this week to ensure a celebratory trip for 50 years of friendship was truly special.

January 2021 USVI only charter

Lesli and Ryan,
What an absolutely heavenly week! It is not often that a trip we’ve taken has actually exceeded our expectations, but this past week with you certainly did! Everything was perfect – the food, as evidenced by our continually cleaned plates, the activities you provided and the Anastasia herself! Most of all, though was the crew! You both couldn’t have been more of a treat. You were so professional, we knew we were in good hands, and such fun! Thank you for an amazing week – we loved being ‘Fun-Seekers’ with you both!
Best,
Bob and Jill

January 2021 USVI only charter

We all had a WONDERFUL time. Ryan and Lesli were great and went above and beyond. Lesli should be rated a Michelin, the food was great and she read our preferences perfectly. We were able to ring in our New Year great. The yacht was perfect, it fit exactly what we needed, not too big nor too small. King cabins selections are great.
What I love the best about the yacht experience is it takes the thought process away of where you are going to go eat and what you are going to do next. Ryan and Lesli were great. Thank you for this experience.
Sincerely,
Rosemary L.

New Year 2020/21 USVI only charter

Wow! Daren and I can’t thank you enough for such a great experience for us first timers. Wonderful crew, sail and food and fun! You have become such a part of our family and hope we will get to see you again really soon. Your service was off the hook. We wanted a stress free, lazy vacation without having to worry about where to eat and what to do. You handled that for all of us. Thank you again for having us and welcoming us in.
Love,
The L´s

December 2020 USVI only charter

Ryan and Lesli,
Thank you for the unforgettable trip of a lifetime. The two of you are what made the trip so special. The Anastasia and the islands are beautiful and we can’t wait to return. We hope our lives pass again in the future and when you make it to California, please let us know. Wishing you safe sailings and prosperous future endeavors.
Love,
Troy and Jeanne

July 2020 USVI Only Charter

It would be hard for me to imagine a crew and a boat that was better than the Anastasia. Our family of 5 (including two teenagers and one young adult child) was entertained and cared for as if we were royalty!!
The food was amazing and Captain Ryan was a great host on the underwater scooter, snorkeling, tubing and all the other water sports.
Lesli took great care of me and my son as we experienced our first scuba dive in the Caribbean Sea. The dives were perfect for our skill level and we saw some beautiful underwater creatures and coral.

March 2020

Ryan and Lesli,
What an amazing week! This trip was more than we ever imagined - mainly thanks to the two of you taking such good care of us. You made sure we got to do all the things, see all the sights, enjoy all the delicious foods and tasty drinks, and make all kinds of memories that will last a lifetime. You´ve inspired us to try new things and it will be fun to see these college girls try all your recipes! Hope you know how much we appreciate you both and are glad to have you as a part of the family. We´d love to share some of our Southern hospitality with y´all if you´re ever in Georgia, so we can spoil you a little. Keep living the dream and making everyone else´s dreams come true along the journey.
Love,
Katie, Tracy, Kelly, Liz, and Sara

February 2020

On the 15th day of February 2020, our lives have forever changed! God has blessed us with two amazing people. Six friends started out to sail at sea with you two and now became eight friends!

So attentive to every detail. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! When you up in Michigan come stay with us, we’d love to have you both. God bless you both, keep you safe at sea and the wind always be in your sails. Love you kids! – Dave & Carol

Ryan and Lesli,
You are absolutely the most amazing crew and now friends! I’ve been dreaming of this trip for 7 years and it was above and beyond my wildest dreams. You guys were so great. Very attentive, great sailing, out this world food and drinks. I loved the fact that you were our personal tour guides and joined us. You were so fun to be with. I am going to work very hard at convincing Charlie to come back soon. Please keep in touch and do visit us when you are in Michigan. We will leave the light on for you! And this time we will spoil you. Thanks again for the most AMAZING week. I really don’t want to leave. Love you guys! – Stephanie & Charlie

February 2020

Dear Lesli & Ryan-
Thank you so much for a wonderful trip on Anastasia. We enjoyed many days of frolicking and snorkeling under blue, sunny skies. You two are great partners in making sure all of our needs were met. The food was spectacular. Lesli did a great job of making meals that worked for all of us, going above and beyond. We all appreciated how expertly you two ran the boat as well as took care of us to make sure we were having a good time. Thanks again! – Jeanine & Guy

January 2020

Ryan and Lesli,
Thank you for such an amazing week! While boats, islands, beaches, painkillers and nut whackers will always have their own appeal, you two really made this trip special! We had a great time exploring and learning about the area. You two did a great job coming up with an exciting and engaging itinerary. The hardest part of this trip is getting ready to depart as I sit here and write this. The Anastasia is a wonderful vessel and I can’t imagine a better crew for it. I will always remember the wonderful and hilarious stories we shared this week. You two are the #1 crew in the BVI. If you are ever in Texas, Oregon or Colorado let us know! We can’t wait to make it down here again to see y’all again! Early mornings on the bow and late nights on the dinghy will always be memorable. We hope you have a great rest of the season and many more successful seasons to come. Thanks again for helping us give 2020 and amazing start. The two of you really made it special and very memorable.
Thanks for an awesome week!
-Jason, Chuck, Edna, Liz, Patrick, Erica

New Years 2019/20

We had a truly memorable trip with Ryan and Lesli during our week in the BVI’s. Between keeping the boat spotless at all times, preparing delicious meals and being knowledgeable about the different islands, Ryan and Lesli consistently went out of their way to enrich our experience aboard Anastasia. Additionally, they were proactive with planning activities and adjusting our itinerary (ie: weather changed at the last minute). Extremely lovely couple and always prioritized our comfort and enjoyment throughout the trip. Thanks for a great time!! – Dane Adelman
You guys are the absolute best! – Sam
Thank you for an amazing week at sea! So many wonderful family memories we will treasure forever. You are an incredible team, and we are so lucky to have you as our crew on this special boat! – Chelsea & Chad

Lesli & Ryan,

Both of you are fabulous hosts and very talented captains and crew. This has been the trip of a lifetime for both of us. Your hospitality and beautiful gourmet meals were a great surprise and all were 5 star quality.

We now feel we have met two new friends which is an extra bonus. We look forward to seeing you again soon – either in Augusta or on back on the yacht!

Have a wonderful life together and safe seas always!
Cheryl & Paul

May 2019

Lesli & Ryan,

There are vacations and then there are EXPERIENCES. Each person in our family will leave here with memories of a magical place, filled with mermaids and pirates, secret coves and sea shell beaches, swimming turtles and flying fish, idyllic islands and serene sailing. It’s almost as if we could imagine the perfect day – then the two of you made it a reality. Delicious, fresh meals, bottomless painkillers, thoughtful accommodations for the kids and special touches all along.

Thank you, thank you for an absolutely incredible family adventure – that we’ll carry with us and dare to surpass next year!!

You’re both wonderful – thanks again!
Love,
Andy & Nancy , Scott and Noelle, Ali, Jeff & Heather, Emerson & Charlie

April 2019

Just wow! These islands have a special place in my heart now seeing them through the eyes of Ryan and Lesli. They made it unforgettable. Every minute of this trip was a memory in te making. The boat, the views, the stops at all the islands were such fun, but spending time with Ryan and Lesli was the highlight. Their knowledge of the islands they love so much was obvious and the way they work together as such a great team is sure to make every charter special.

Can’t wait to visit the BVI again!
Andy & Diane Schwartz
Lesli & Ryan,

Words of thanks for this extraordinary experience fail me. The sights, the sounds, smells and colors are overwhelming. This has been the biggest adventure of my life and has been so comfortable. Now, let’s talk about the masterful touch you both handle this gorgeous vessel with…you both make it look so easy and enjoyable. The attention to detail you planned our trip with has been exceptional! Memories I will always treasure. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality!

May all your dreams come true,
Susan D.

March 2019

What a magical experience that we will never forget! Every minute just kept getting better! Ryan and Lesli did not disappoint.

Great times!
Jason, Mary, Noah & Isaac

It is incredibly rare that I leave a family vacation and reflect “This was the most amazing trip ever” BUT, Ryan and Lesli have easily surpassed any and all expectations and have set an incredibly high bar for future trips to come. The hospitality was top notch, the food was high end restaurant quality, the safety and professionalism was always paramount. Most importantly, bringing four kids on charter (ages 7,8,10,11) was so easy with Ryan and Lesli. They were so good with the kids. I could go on and on, but the real testimony with be when we re-book next year.

Can’t wait!
