Lir Crew Profile
Toby Wood is your captain:
Toby grew up by the harbour in Ramsgate, UK, and has been on the water virtually all of his life, with his father almost as passionate about sailing as Toby. We are really fortunate in having such an experienced and highly qualified Captain on board Lir.
Toby started his charter career in 2015 on Lir´s sister yacht and since then, with us throughout, he has worked hard to gain qualifications from Advanced Powerboat Instructor to RYA Yachtmaster, adding to his prior excellent record in dinghy racing.
He has now completed six Trans-Atlantic crossings with two of them as Captain of Lir and three as Captain of our sister-yacht. Toby genuinely enjoys sharing his enthusiasm and teaching guests more about sailing and water sport with everyone on board, whilst ensuring your safety and full enjoyment of the charter experience with Lir.
Thomas van der Giessen - chef
Thomas is a French/Dutch national, with an insatiable passion for fine cuisine and yachting combined. Professionally trained he enjoys creating delectable menus with European and Asian flair. Using fresh and locally sourced ingredients where possible, he amazes his guests with stunning plates of unforgettable meals. At 26 years of age, he is a keen and enthusiastic individual with an undeniable love for cooking, sailing, active sports, and travel.
Sam Rowe is your Dive Master and First Mate :
Sam is passionate about his time both on the water and under it and it is a pleasure for all that he is Lir´s vastly experienced live-aboard Dive Master and First Mate.
When Sam is not diving or on a boat he is a Tour Manager, involving him in traveling the world with high profile, demanding artists, juggling multiple tour buses, trucks, freight and performers. When you have the time and want to chill and chat, he will keep you entranced with stories about life on the road and under the water.
Sam was brought up amongst the beaches, coves and caves of Cornwall, UK, so it is no surprise that he turned to boats and diving; with his wealth of experience, he really knows the difference between a good dive and an amazing dive, whilst also taking great care that your time on deck and with water sports is as relaxing or as hectic as you desire. Sam has delivered over 1000 dives all around the world.

Celebrating Audra´s 50th was unforgettable, for some it was a first charter and others had sailed several times. Everything about this vacation was amazing. Toby was so capable, he managed to find something fun for us to do around St Maarten each day. Sam was fun and fully and catered to our every need. AND THE FOOD!!! Katie´s meals were so delicious - every breakfast, lunch and dinner - amazing. Thank you very much - we will never forget this fantastic vacation. Awesome diving!! Sam was an amazing divemaster, so many lobsters and cool wrecks! Fantastic trip!!!
August 18 - 30 2020 Italy
What a magical experience! We spent a marvelous moment with a super crew. Thank you for turning these moments into souvenirs that will forever stay in our memories. Can´t wait for a new trip!
LIR charter, March 1 – 8, STT/STT
We had a blast! My grandkids LOVED it. They want to go again in a couple of years! Joss & Tony were great with kids with all the water sports. The food was amazing! Aurelie was awesome! The boat is beautiful. Thanks for making this happen for me! Another check off my bucket list!
LIR Feedback Feb 7 - 14, 2020 BVI
It is without hesitation that we write this note extolling the virtues of the LIR and its’ amazing crew. First I need to mention that 2 of the 4 couples had previously visited the BVI so we had some notion of what we were in for. But any preconceived ideas were for exceeded by the LIR and its’ crew. From Captain Joss’ first phone conversation when he said “your watches, cell phones and shoes will be confiscated upon boarding” to our heartfelt goodbyes at the end of our trip our entire voyage went without a hitch. While one could be fooled by Captain Joss’ boyish looks his demeanor, humor, in addition to his competence he was an absolute joy to have as our Captain. And when we first had a chance to review the menu prior to the trip we anticipated good food. But the reality of Auriele’s culinary talents were extraordinary during every breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All of us just marveled as Auriele came out to relate the menu and its’ ingredients for every meal. And 1st mate Toby was always there helping everyone out with whatever was needed at the time. His watersports and sailing experience were in play every day. The chemistry between all three was evident every day and we all felt comfortable and relaxed throughout. We could not have had a better crew and our experience reflected that. They are a real asset to the LIR. And the this note wouldn’t be complete without a comment about the LIR. It was a beautiful and luxurious vessel and stood out among most every boat we saw in the BVI.
LIR Feb 7 - 14, 2020 BVI
LIR was a true delight. Accommodations, food and crew were top notch! We especially liked sharing the boat with Captain Joss and Toby and Aurelie. They were super attentive and fun to be with! Please pass on our thanks to them.
New Year 2019 into 2020 BVI
~Thanks for an amazing vacation! We loved every moment of it - you are a great team!
~Thank you for making this trip the best vacation I´ve ever been on. We had the best time even though I almost got stuck in a cave :)
~Thanks for making this trip so awesome. It would not have been the same without you guys. Aurelie made the food and Joss had the worst American accent. Tobster is the man.
~All three of you were terrific! Your attention to our needs are very appreciated. I hope to board your boat again soon.
~Thanks, the best trip of my life
~Thank you for making this vacation our best ever! (And a special thanks for watchful eyes at Foxy´s)

February 2019 Charter Guest comments:
Mel, George, Brooks, Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! Thanks for the great care of our group from morning to night. We had a great time and so appreciate all your efforts. Delicious, Delightful and damn fantastic! Oustanding!!
I will remember the night sails forever!! Thank you so much for an awesome week!
Thanks so much for a great time, In St Martin, I write this rhyme, we fished and fished and lost a hook, but in the end we always had Brooks! The food that Mel prepared for us beyond compare... it is a must! Georges skills are top notch! Not a single anchoring did he botch! To save on water I hid my glass in my shoe each night very fast, and so we thank the crew for LIR... To Gearoge, Mel and Brooks... a final beer
Thank you for a spectacular week! We all had a perfectly wonderful week, thanks to the good care provided by all 3 of you, day and night. Melissa prepared the most delicious imaginative meals ever and George kept us all entertained with his tales of his wild youth while keeping LIR on safe passage. We left the comfort of our boat only once for dinner, and we all agreed that our meal ashore was a very poor substitute for Melissa´s divine dinners. She is and extraordinary chef whom we all wished we could take home with us. Brooks happy spirit and smile brightened every day, she is a great addition to the LIR crew.
We return to Vero Beach as happy, relaxed indulged customers. PS we loved seeing the whales!!

Captain George, Melissa and Brooks,
We both thank you for an amazing week filled with fun, laughter and the most spectacular food we´ve ever eaten. The end of our trip culminating in the fantastic firework display that was organised for us to celebrate our wedding day. It has all been unforgettable & we thank you again.

Many Thanks to Mel, Brooks and George for a wonderful trip. It is easy to build a great boat but difficult to build a great crew...and you are an amazing crew!! Thanks for all you do and we look forward to seeing you again!
Dear Mel, George and Brooks,
Thank you for an absolutely wonderful adventure under the seas and aboard the LIR. You were all amazing.
Love and Big Hugs...
About as fun as it gets...when you feel like you´re one big family you know it was a good trip! The food, the service adn the attention to detail was Top Notch...of course the bromance had to end at some point, but we tried...
You´re in my heart...
August 2018 Grenadines
I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much we enjoyed our cruise. The boat was (well-maintained), the weather held out and the crew was exceptional!
I would highly recommend this crew —Captain Greg, Chef Vanessa and our activities director Amanda. The boat was always clean and orderly. The meals were outstanding and all of our needs were anticipated before we even thought to ask. They are by far the best crew I have ever experienced.
I know allot about food and hospitality - I own and manage hundreds of restaurant throughout the East Coast. Cooking on a boat with limited equipment is very challenging. I want to especially thank Venessa for taking into consideration our dietary restrictions. She even found time to bake fresh bread and deserts each day. Her creativity and attention to detail was was present at each meal. We loved her food so much she is sharing her recipes with us.
Greg addressed all of my boating questions, got us to all of our destinations safely and especially helpful getting me reacquainted with Scuba diving.
Amanda some how knew what we wanted before we thought to ask. Her smile and willingness to please was genuine-- all of our guest had a great time!
I look forward to booking a trip next year -- I am open to any comparable vessel but you can be certain I will ask for the same amazing crew of Greg Vanessa and Amanda.
Thank for under promising an over delivering

We are so lucky to have come together for this special week, and we wish for you many more adventures.

One of the best weeks ever! Thank you so much. X
Post Charter Evaluation:
How did you enjoy your cruising vacation?
This was, by far, one of the best vacations we have ever taken, both individually and as a family. We had some positive expectations leading up to the trip, but we were blown away at how amazing & memorable the trip truly was. We were privy to the perfect balance of relaxation and adventure and didn’t want the trip of a lifetime to end. We honestly can’t wait to board LIR again for another trip!!
How would you describe your Captain and crew? Were they Courteous? Helpful? Friendly? Attentive? Knowledgeable?
Our Captain and crew were exceptional across the board. We felt safe and sound throughout the whole trip with Captain Greg “at the wheel,” and his sense of adventure helped us expand our comfort zones for the better with activities like cliff jumping and tubing. Chef Vanessa was nothing short of AMAZING! From her unreal cooking skills which fed us like royalty, to her caring and engaging conversation, she was a real joy to have on the boat. Amanda was just wonderful as well. From her impressive drink-making abilities, to her caring service waiting on us each day for whatever need we had. And who could forget her incredible backflip jump off of the cliff. The memorable impact this crew had on us could be especially felt on the last day as we hugged them all goodbye in tears. We didn’t want to leave the boat, nor our newfound friends!
Tell me about your meals? Did the menus meet your expectations? Did your Chef and Crew pay close attention to your Preference Sheets?
Every meal was just perfect! The menu and each meal FAR EXCEEDED our expectations. The portion sizes were fabulous, the table settings were intricate, and the originality of each plate was wonderful! The Crew definitely paid close to attention to some of our allergies and were always available to make more of a particular meal or snack. We had no idea that the meals would be one of the highlights of the trip but Chef Vanessa and the crew gave us feasts we will never forget. If only we could eat like kings and queens every day…!
How is the yacht? Is she clean and well-maintained? Were your cabins comfortable? Was the cockpit comfortable? Was there enough shade?
The yacht was exceptionally clean and well-maintained for sure. Our cabins and the cockpit were VERY comfortable and all the perfect size! We very much appreciated the crew cleaning our cabins each day, and there are so many spots on LIR to just relax and take a nice daytime nap.
What did you like most about the yacht? What did you like the least?
We probably liked the Crew most of all as it relates to LIR. Second to that would definitely be the size, and the way it reduced a lot of choppiness with its double haul. We can’t think of anything we didn’t like about LIR.
How did you find the pace and the itinerary of your vacation?
We had no idea what to expect about the itinerary, but it was the PERFECT mix of fun and adventure, and relaxation. The crew gave us such a wonderful balance of engaging conversation with them, and alone time.
Would you charter this yacht again? If not, please explain:
We would ABSOLUTELY charter LIR again, and hope to do so later this year!!
Best week of my Life!
Captain Greg: Between riding motorbikes, tubing, diving, and snorkeling, I cannot thank you enough! Especially for hunting down Aubrey Forbes and his music. If possible, I’m nominating you for Best Captain of the Century!
Chef Vanessa: The food you prepared has obviously been out-of-this-world and awesome this past week! Your beautiful, happy, and positive nature made all the difference for this family. We love you and can’t wait to see you and Capt. Greg again to share more experiences and stories!
First Mate Amanda: First and foremost, killer drinks! All week you cased to impress us all, including your crew it seems. You are not only the best among those in the service industry, but among the greatest people I have ever met. You are so calm and peaceful on the surface, I can only hope you feel the same on the inside because you made us feel at peace all week!
I wish to meet you all again soon!
Limbo Champ Jake (Glen Mills, PA)
Dear Vanessa, Greg, and Amanda,
I’ve been dreaming of this vacation with my family for a year. I was hoping for something where we could spend quality time, relax and have fun. However, what you all provided exceeded all expectations and you gave us something I didn’t know even existed. The adventures pushed my boundaries, which was exactly what I needed. You all knew what we needed every minute and took such great care of us. We all enjoyed getting to know you personally, and hearing stories of your previous adventures. I’m overwhelmed with emotion for the joy your crew provided ad can’t believe it’s now time to say goodbye. Thank you for making my dreams come true and we will see you again – just not soon enough! Be well!

Greg, Vanessa, and Amanda
Our vacation on Lir with you guys surpassed all expectations I had before coming on this trip. Captain Greg, A.K.A. Capt. Adventure, pushed me and my family outside our comfort zone. He had us doing things I never thought I would on this trip, and it was so much fun!!! I will never forget scaling the sea urchin cliff and diving into the “toilet bowl.” Chef Vanessa, you captured my heart with your amazing meals and shining personality! I can’t wait to come back and try more of your cooking!! Amanda, I don’t know how you do what you do. Always working so diligently and it felt as if you were reading my mind at times, doing this before I could even think it! Also, your drinks were the best ever! Keep up the good work. Greg and Vanessa are lucky to have you around. I will be counting the days until the next vacation with you!
To the Lir Crew,
I’m a man of few written words. With that said, I want to sincerely thank you all for an amazing UNFORGETTABLE week of vacation. My family and I truly felt your kindness, care, and love throughout every part of the trip! Your service was impeccable! I can’t wait to come back ASAP!
Vince (aka Jince)
Greg, Vanessa, and Amanda
We had high hopes for this week and you three exceeded them all. The food, the libations, and the ambiance were fabulous. You made us feel so comfortable and at home on the boat. For that we will be forever grateful.
All three of you have a special talent and we look forward to sailing with you again (hopefully in the near future)!
Thank you! Thank you ! Thank you for a memorable week!
San Diego, CA
Dear Greg, Vanessa, and Amanda,
We echo the emotions
Ruth and John have expressed so clear
the memories of this trip
we will long hold dear.
Every day filled with adventure
on the sea without a fear
every night a gourmet dinner
filled with laughter, wine and beer
How could we ever surpass this?
Nothing can come close to our time on the Lir
The only remedy we can see
Is to return to yacht with you next year.
A big hug,
Dear Greg, Vanessa, and Amanda,
We cannot thank you enough for our fabulous week of sailing! Your attention to detail really made our trip! Making us feel so comfortable from the very beginning meant so much to us!
Greg: Your expertise at sailing, your informative briefings each morning, and your willingness to be flexible could not have been any better! Your ´skills on the grill´ were absolutely amazing!
Vanessa: Your culinary creations were so amazing! Your wonderful use of herbs, spices, and creative ingredients was extremely evident in everything you prepared! The wine pairings were outstanding! Desserts were such an incredible treat each day!
Amanda: How could you possibly have known all of our needs and desires? Your bright smile in the morning got us off to such a nice start! Your creative cocktails were delicious! You were abler to do it all and still remain the sweet person you are!
Lir: Beautiful sailboat is an understatement! So well maintained, equipped with water toys and with helpful guides to use them! The encouragement helped us to try new things and for that we are so grateful to the crew! You are the best!! THANK YOU!
We hope our paths cross again!
Enjoy this poem. . .
Here we sit with a broken heart,
Today is the day we have to part.
Our time on Lir was so much fun
Snorkelling, boarding under the BVI sun.
Our memories will take, as we head home. . .
Farewell to the crew till next we roam.

Captain Greg, Vanessa, and Amanda
Happy New Year 2018! It was a wonderful week following Hurricane Irma. We didn´t know what to expect to see but it was beautiful as always. It felt so good to stop and visit people and businesses along the way. . It will rebuild fully soon.
The attention to detail on LIR is immaculate and the personal service is a clean 10. We love how easy going you are with us yet we feel the journey is nothing but professional. Amanda´s sunny disposition brought us to feel right at home. Vanessa´s meals are always the very best (would not change one thing!) and Captain Greg made us feel like we were safe at all times. Dan especially loved the dive with the Eagle Rays.
Thank you for the most magical week! We count the months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds until we step aboard and each experience is better than the last! We love you all!
Greg, Vanessa, and Amanda,

Dear Greg, Vanessa and Michelle thank you for such a memorable trip and all your hard work to totally spoil us on our stay on the Lir. From the time we saw you three smiling faces at the Bequia airport, right to the end of trip, you have all been wonderful. The geography of the Grenadines and the stops and activities planned were awesome, but without the care and attention you provided it would not have been so enjoyable. Vanessa the meals were wonderful. Thank you not for just your cuisine, but for your interest and eager enthusiasm. Greg thank you piloting us through the waters safely! Michelle, thanks for keeping us ´hydrated´ neat and organised. The trip was memorable and a big part was sharing it with you all. Best wishes for the future X
From the bottom of my heart... thank you... you all handled us perfectly! see you in Barbados. X
´Dearest Greg, Vanessa and Michelle,
The Custards and Gorgans could not have been better looked after. Spring break 2017 was a memory we will always cherish. Thanks for ensuring our every need and then some. The children loved every meal as much as we did. You are all charming fabulous hosts and were planning to do it again next year.
Thank you thank you thank you for taking us through the rough seas, treating us to one last water ski and your general cheerful and willing attitude... Happy almost Birthday Michelle!!

Best Crew In The BVI - December 2016
´Dear Greg, Vanessa & Michelle,
You have been the one of the best crews that we have had in the BVIs!!! All 3 of you paid attention to every detail... Watersports, delicious food, clean cabins, tidy boat... the list goes on and on. We loved every moment and your humour, fun games, and company were the icing on the cake. We will definitely spread the word about the amazing boat and wonderful crew. Dont be surprised if friends of ours try to charter the boat. We hope you have a great time in 2017 you work so hard and we really appreciated it all. We will send you our go-pro movie. Maddies will be 3-5 mins and chriss video will be 1/2 hour . Thank you so much again for all of your hard work and great fun! Love XXX ...´
