Eros Crew Profile

Crew Number5
Crew SmokeNo
Captain
CaptainJustin Bernhart
NationalityUSA
SpeaksEnglish


Your EROS charter crew includes our Captain, Chef, First Mate, Steward, and Deckhand. All crew members are licensed full-time professionals, certified by the U.S. Coast Guard. Their love for sailing is matched by their steadfast commitment to your safety and comfort.

Justin Bernhart, Captain

Justin Bernhart is a licensed captain with an extensive background in marine safety and charter, as well as tall ship and motor yacht handling. He is a veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard, with experience in search and rescue, and a graduate of the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding. He has spent years building and restoring wooden boats on the east and west coasts of North America. He is an experienced offshore sailor and deliveryman, and has been at the helm of various charter and privately-owned vessels, from the 103-foot gaff-rigged AURORA to a 12-meter racing sloop and a 112-foot Westport motor yacht. His credentials include a 500-ton USCG license, advanced firefighting, medical care, and rescue. He is adept at crew training, supervision, and all aspects of yacht management.

Jared Frith, First mate

Jared started sailing dinghies and other small boats on Lake Dillon near his home in Breckenridge, Colorado. He joined a steel l ketch carrying charter guests between Panama and Colombia through the San Blas Islands and fell in love with sailing and the charter business. From there Jared traveled by land through many different countries, but really missed sailing so he found himself on more yachts, gravitating towards larger and older traditional vessels, mostly schooners. Jared loves wooden yachts, the older the better; he enjoys their character. And he loves sharing time on these yachts with guests that he can teach and form friendships with. He enjoys long sea deliveries, seeing the crew become a team, standing watch and partaking in the ultimate nature outing. In his free time Jared loves spending time in the outdoors and traveling as much as possible.

Aimee O´Neil, Deckhand/Stewardess

Aimee grew up on the local waters of New England. From an early age she developed a deep love for the ocean. With past experiences in surf instruction, surf rescue, this surfer gone sailor is at home on the water. Her sailing experience began as a child on her father’s boat and working as a deckhand aboard 12 Meter “Heritage”. Her interests also include free diving and astrology. During your time aboard Eros, Aimee will make you feel right at home. Her years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industries and knowledge on deck allow her to deliver a 5-star experience no matter what. She is ecstatic to serve on Eros where she combines all of her passions in one place.


Jessica Filkins, Chef

Jessica is a yoga teacher, health coach, energy healer, nutritional chef, and entrepreneur. Her highest joy is hosting wellness based adventure retreats. She grew up on Block Island and spent half her childhood home-schooled on a boat in the Bahamas. Jessica studied philosophy, anthropology and psychology at Colorado College. As a chef, Jessica is renowned in her community for the delicious healthy foods and has a gift for bringing amazing people together and facilitating joyful and transformational experiences.


Stewardess Eva Tash

Eva’s love for sailing began when her parents signed her up for sailing camp while on family vacation in the south of France. She began learning the basics on Hobie cats in France and when back home in New England, on small dinghys her neighbors had. When her family moved to Newport, RI Eva found her home with the high school sailing team where she hit, and excelled through a massive learning curve in the art of racing. Eva competed year round for 4 years, until she started college. During her short time in college, she realized how much she missed sailing, and soon paused her studies to pursue a career in the industry.

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

Testimonials

´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.”

January 2012

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.
