Captain Graham Gips & Chef/Mate Kristiann Gips

Your Captain and Chef are native Texans who have been married since 2007. Avid travelers, Kristiann and Graham have lived on four continents and visited over fifty countries. Their experiences have taught them that great vacations are made up of many small details. Consummate hosts, Graham and Kristiann delight in creating memories for their guests.

After 10 years in the corporate world, the Gips reached a point where they could focus on what they love to do most: travel, host guests, and sail. In 2015, they purchased a 44´ catamaran, Allende, upon which they began their chartering career and sailed over 30,000 nautical miles. After seven successful seasons aboard Allende, Graham and Kristiann were thrilled to upgrade their charter program aboard the luxurious Colibrí.

Both Graham and Kristiann are licensed by the United States Coast Guard and are CPR/First Aid certified. They are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. They will be joined by a third crew member for the 2023-2024 season.

Captain Graham Gips

Graham is an engineer by training who spent a successful career in the oil and gas industry. While working abroad, he learned to sail on a 20ft racing dinghy with Kristiann as crew. They raced weekly for several years, topped the local podium and earned the chance to compete internationally.

While he has a competitive streak, Graham is a detail-oriented and safety-conscious sailor who puts the comfort of his guests first. He knows the islands well and can craft an itinerary that suits everyone aboard. When the anchor is set each evening, Graham then turns his attention to crafting cocktails to your taste.

Chef/Mate Kristiann Gips

Before joining the yachting industry, Kristiann ran a successful catering company. She honed her culinary skills by accommodating a wide variety of preferences and dietary needs each day. In 2021, Kristiann further refined her skills by training at the acclaimed Ashburton Cookery School in England.

Kristiann loves to combine gourmet ingredients with local delicacies for new twists on classic dishes. She works with the Captain to design a menu that perfectly complements your sailing itinerary. When she´s not in the galley, Kristiann enjoys escorting guests on snorkel safaris.

Colibri Guest Reviews

January 2023 BVI

Third charter in the history book! Every time is different--experiences & dining. The ´Lamborghini´ boat is off-the-charts amazing! Thank you for taking care of our every need and some we didn´t even know we needed. Can´t wait to come back next year...we will be counting the days.
-- Debbie & Alan

New Year 2022/23 BVI

“What a way to ring in the New Year! Thank you for a most wonderful family trip. We loved it all, from the sailing to the paddleboarding, tubing and snorkeling….and of course the food and drinks! It will be hard to top this…guess we will just have to keep coming back!”
— Katherine & Ryan Fowler

Christmas 2022

“I’m overcome with emotion reviewing the week we just experienced. You two make Colibrí a second home full of love, laughter and joy.

We had so many amazing meals and excursions. It’s hard to pick a top three because each day brought such a level of care and specialized experiences.

Thank you a million times for making this trip so perfect.”
— Holly & John

Reviews for Graham and Kristiann from their Former Yacht

You guys have gone above and beyond to ensure we had the trip of our lives. Your hospitality and attention to detail every second since we’ve been aboard is unsurpassable. From Kristiann’s amazing meals to the personally guided tours—you guys have taken care of us around the clock.”
— Kelly, Matt, Carol, Dan & Cat

Reviews for Graham and Kristiann from their Former Yacht

“Thank you all for the best vacation the Kay fam has ever had! We truly do not want to leave. Thank you for putting up with our millions of questions and showing us so many beautiful places. The snorkeling was the most amazing we’ve experienced. The dining experience onboard is second to none! Every meal was perfection—delicious and beautifully designed to our palates. We will miss these amazing meals. We hope we can come back for another fabulous week with y’all!”
— The Kay Family

Reviews for Graham and Kristiann from their Former Yacht

“To Graham—
We really appreciate your professionalism and eye for safety. You are an excellent Captain and allowed us to truly relax even with the young ones aboard. Thank you for sharing your home with us this week and your beautiful backyard and pool!

To Kristiann—
You are the real deal—cooking, scheduling and crewing. Watching you and Graham work together is inspirational. Thank you also for getting our family around the table. Good food, good conversation and no devices!”
— Kelly & Matt

Reviews for Graham and Kristiann from their Former Yacht

“We had a fantastic experience! My wife and I took our 2 children (13-year-old boy and 9-year-old girl) on a 9-day charter. Captain Graham and Chef/First Mate Kristiann welcomed us to their home. They were eager to assist with any and all water activities including snorkeling, paddle board, kayak, hammock, the floating unicorn, etc.

The food was amazing. Kristiann made almost everything from scratch and made it seem effortless. Each meal was expertly prepared with consideration for each individuals likes and dislikes. The presentation was artistic and the timing was impeccable. Each morning started with gourmet coffee.

We ended each evening with a discussion about the following days activities. Graham and Kristiann had options at every destination to meet our expectations. They could get us on the best mooring or anchorage in crowded locations or tuck us into a secluded cove if that is what we preferred for the day.

If it was possible to sail we were sailing. Graham and Kristiann love to sail. They had the spinnaker in the air several times on our trip. The 2 of them have clearly spent a lot of time together on the water. They worked together like a well-oiled machine.

Graham and Kristiann own Allende and it shows. We have chartered multiple times in BVI and their professionalism stands out in my eyes. They were willing to pick us up early and keep us on board late when our flight was delayed. Their attention to detail with boat care and maintenance was obvious. They knew the boat inside and out and were prepared to handle any situation that arose.

You will not be disappointed if you book a trip with them.. I feel like we have made new friends with Graham and Kristiann and hope to keep in touch with them in the coming years. Keep living your dream!”
