Justin Bernhart, Captain - Justin cultivated his love for sailing on lake Austin, Ohio where he grew up. When he finished high school he joined the US Coast Guard where he served as a Boatswains Mate and coxswain on search and rescue and law enforcement missions. After the Coast Guard Justin attended a wooden boat building school in Washington state which led him to a career in tall ships. While sailing with Justin you can rest assured that you’re in good hands. Justin holds a 1,600 ton oceans USCG captains license. In his free time Justin enjoys spending time on his own boats and in the Mountains, skiing, trekking and camping.

He has spent the last 10+ years working on a variety of vessels all over the world. His experience includes multiple Caribbean and Mediterranean sailing seasons, two transatlantic voyages and many super yacht regattas. Colin holds his 200-ton Near Coastal USCG Cap- train’s license. In his off time, Colin owns and maintains his own sailboat and enjoys cruising around the greater New England area.
Brieanne Buckey, Chief Stew - Bri grew up on Jamestown Island across the bridge from Newport, RI, where she naturally fell in love with the ocean, and boats. After a stint in the Hawaiian islands, she moved to the Virgin Islands to be close to her first love, warm ocean waters. Drawn to the yachts in the harbor she took a job on a charter boat and has not looked back. She has rounded out her guest service experience with several years working in restaurants and hotels and truly loves to make sure Eros’s charter guests’ expectations are exceeded every minute they are on board. Bri also prides herself on her excellent mixology skills.
Heather Stout, Chef - Heather grew up in the southwest desert of Utah and migrated to the eastern coast over a decade ago, where she ended up in Maine and fell in love with classic wooden schooners, the rugged Atlantic shoreline, and the hearty New England agriculture. With over twenty years of experience in restaurants and farming, Heather knows the importance of promoting local food culture by finding and learning the expertise of farmers, ingredients, and practices from the different regions we visit. She places an emphasis on healthy and vibrant meals, and brings a clear message of sustainability and nourishment to her cuisine.
Delaney Vorwick, Mate - A recent grad from Boston College, Delaney has sailed extensively in many parts of the world aboard bare boat charters and on her family’s private sailboat. She made the transition to professional mariner in 2020 and has worked full time ever since aboard large traditional sailing vessels just like Eros. She is currently studying to take her 100-Ton USCG exams. In her free time she enjoys exploring the natural world around her including birding, hiking and swimming.
Rachel Saudek, Stew - Rachel grew up sailing along the coast of Maine, out of Boothbay Harbor, with her family. While sailing every summer, she pursued other things in life such as dance, yoga, and growing food sustainably. After living part-time on the coast of Brazil and part-time in New England for many years, she decided sailing was something she wanted to pursue more seriously. She is thrilled to combine her experience in hospitality and experience on boats, and to set off on a new adventure by joining the crew of Eros.

Eros Guest Reviews
Christmas 2018 in BVI
´OMG! We just LOVED our time on EROS!!!!!!! The crew set the bar very high and when we were on another yacht, my kids kept comparing it to Eros. ERO rocks!!´ -BVI, Christmas 2018
´My week on Eros during the Antigua regatta was one of the most memorable experiences I’ve had. The combination of a beautiful boat, an amazing crew and great meals make for a wonderful vacation. The racing was fun too!´
S.R., Hermosa Beach, CA (April 2017)
´I recently had the opportunity to go sailing on Eros with my son, some of my best buddies and their sons. What an experience! The boat is beautiful - everything it´s advertised to be. We hit surfing and snorkeling spots you can´t get to without a boat. We did some fishing, took many father/son kayak trips and just soaked up the amazing sun and waters of the BVIs. Simply put, a trip we will remember forever.´
B.D., San Gabriel, CA (2017)
´Excellent in every way. Loved the sailing. We wouldn’t change a thing.´
J.M., Denver, CO (2017)
“Our group of seven ladies absolutely loved every minute of our five days on board Eros; we are very grateful for the experience and look forward to returning with husbands and kids.”
R.J., New York, NY (2017)
´We had an amazing time. Eros is a spectacular yacht, the crew was excellent, the USVI were beautiful and the weather was good too! The highlight of the trip was sail down passage between USVI & BVI. We also had great time with anchored activities: diving off transom/swimming around Eros; snorkeling with colorful reef fish, turtles and a sting ray; seeing spotted eagle rays jumping out of the water; enjoying delicious meals; “skurfing” (one son learned to waterski, the other learned to wake board); spending two afternoons on uncrowded beaches; etc. Great family time!”
J.S., Orange County, CA (2017)
“The sailing and island hopping experience of a lifetime.”
Christmas and New Year 2017/2018
Thank you for everything that you must do to keep this vessel available to those of us without your courage to undertake such a daunting task. Sleeping on her deck and contemplating the heavens through the frame of her rigging provided a picture of sheer magnificence. And the sailing compounded the joy of it all. The entire crew was sensational and all in it has left me wanting more.

This little message to thank the lovely crew for the nice time we spend with all of you onboard SY Eros. The area is great, the weather was with us, and we enjoyed the sailing, the food and the service!

Some recent very happy client testimonials:
Many thanks to the crew of Eros for a memorable experience. You treated us with such courtesy from the time that we arrived on Eros to our warm goodbyes. Our cruise Downeast along the Maine coast featured wonderful sailing, cozy anchorages, a variety of options for shopping, dining, or hiking ashore, and wonderful meals on the boat. We especially enjoyed happy hours and dinners around the cockpit table with party lights strung around the deck for ambiance as we watched the sunset across the water. Eros was fun to sail on a reach with the rig powered up. The Chef and food were amazing and you even met our wish for a lobster bake onshore. Thanks for the extra effort, and thanks too for entertaining us one night by singing sea chanties. -
March 2021 Charter - Caribbean
We can´t begin to adequately put into words how wonderful our trip was. Amy and Max were spectacular and took care of our every need. Justin and Jared gave sailing memories we will never forget. Cassie created meals that were beyond exceptional. I still dream about her desserts.
Each day brought grand adventures and numerous moments of happiness. There, literally, is nothing more that could have been done to make it any better. Many thanks to you and the entire Eros crew for giving our families a vacation week we will never forget. -
