Captain - Tony Morgan

Tony hails from the south coast of the UK and has been on the water since before he can remember. Starting out in a pond sailing Optimists before progressing to larger sail boats and yachts. He has been a captain since the age of 18, having received his qualifications upon graduating secondary school. After studying Ancient History and History at University (and now loaded with facts about all his charter destinations!) and a brief stint in Marketing, he found his way back to the sea in 2016 to start a full-time career as a charter captain. He has run charters in a large amount of the Mediterranean, including Greece, Croatia, Turkey and Sicily, as well as crossing the Atlantic multiple times to work in the Caribbean for winter seasons. Most recently, Tony has spent his time in the BVI both running yachts and teaching sailing courses for a well-known sailing school based in Tortola.

Chef - Mia Hanks

Mia grew up on the water in Sydney’s Northern Beaches cruising on yachts in the majestic Pittwater harbour. She has absolutely fallen in love with the simple pleasures of living on a yacht and introducing guests to this magical world. She enjoys all her passions in this position: gathering people together to share delicious food, traveling, and the water. After studying marketing and working in a corporate job in Sydney for five years she decided to pursue her passion. Years later, she is still living her dream, having catered for guests aboard yachts in Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Italy, France, the BVIs and the stunning waters around St Maarten. While her cooking repertoire is broad, she loves to prepare fresh and healthy dishes incorporating local delicacies with the freshest produce. She loves the craft of putting tastes, textures, and aromas together and believes that good food creates wonderful experiences that bring people together. Guests offer glowing feedback about the gourmet standard of the dishes Mia serves, how beautifully they are displayed and her ability to interpret the exact kind of food they love. Guests often say that her sociable, enthusiastic presence adds to the enjoyment of their holidays.


First Mate - Rachel McArdle

Rachel recently fell in love with yachting after completing her first season in the Mediterranean in summer 2023. She grew up in Southern California and originally attended SDSU to complete a degree in teaching. But after spending a summer in Italy working as an Au Pair and catching the travel bug she made the choice to pack up life at home and pursue full time seasonal work. “I never imagined working on boats, but now I can’t picture myself doing anything else. I love being face to face with guests and doing what I can to make their vacation extraordinary.”

Tony and Mia met in the industry while working for a sailing flotilla holiday company hosting guests on yachts in the beautiful Mediterranean, with Rachel joining them in the Caribbean this season. This positive and easy going trio share the same passion for travel, sailing and a high level of customer service bringing them together to work as the well-balanced team they are today; Successfully chartering together in the Mediterranean, BVI and surrounds. Putting their shared strong work-ethic to good use, the crew fully embrace the in-depth preparation that is essential to ensure guests enjoy their vacation to the fullest.

They relish in the moment guests relax as they joyfully make the boat their home for the week and experience the holiday of their wildest dreams. The excitement that comes from the day-to-day charter activities gives the team endless amounts of satisfaction. From mapping out the route for the day with guests after breakfast, to showing the best snorkeling spots and pointing out some fantastic life under the sea to sunset cocktails and beautifully displayed gourmet dishes that are not only a feast for the eyes but absolutely delicious and fresh too.

When guests book their adventure with these friendly, seasoned professionals, they can be confident that every tiny detail will be carefully considered to ensure their once-in-a-lifetime vacation far exceeds their wildest dreams. Captain Tony, Chef Mia, and First Mate Rachel love nothing more than bringing beautiful holidays to life and cannot wait to welcome more people on board to cruise with them.

Week in the British Virgin Islands aboard Mare Blu was an absolute dream come true

DEC 7-17 Aboard the Mare Blu -

We recently embarked on a week-long adventure in the British Virgin Islands, chartering a new to us boat that exceeded all our expectations. From the moment we set foot on board, it was clear that we were in for a remarkable journey. Our Captain, Tony, and the exceptional crew made this trip a truly unforgettable experience.

Captain Tony was the anchor to a great team. His extensive knowledge of the British Virgin Islands, coupled with his passion for sailing, ensured that we enjoyed the most of our trip given the weather and the fact this was our 15th year in the BVI. Tony´s friendly demeanor and willingness to share stories and insights about the islands added a personal touch to our adventure.

The crew (Jordon & Darsey) on board was nothing short of incredible. Although Darsey was only stepping in for Mia, she did her proud in all respects! A tip of the hat to Virgin Charter Yachts for making sure our experience never changed with a crew change. They operated seamlessly, taking care of all our needs with efficiency and a smile. From helping us with water sports activities to keeping a cold drink of choice in your hand, they were always one step ahead. Their hospitality and warmth made us feel like part of the family, and their dedication to ensuring our comfort was truly commendable.

One of the highlights of our charter experience was the exceptional culinary skills displayed by the onboard chef Darsy. Each meal was a masterpiece, carefully prepared using fresh, local ingredients. From mouthwatering seafood dishes to delectable desserts, our taste buds were in constant awe. Dietary preferences and allergies were accommodated with ease, showcasing her versatility and attention to detail.

The vessel itself was a marvel, perfectly suited to our needs. It was clean, well-maintained, and spacious, providing ample room for relaxation and recreation. The cabins were comfortable, offering a cozy retreat after a day of exploration. The boat´s amenities, including water toys, snorkeling gear, and comfortable lounging areas, ensured that we were always entertained and comfortable.

Highly Recommended

In conclusion, our week in the British Virgin Islands aboard this charter boat was an absolute dream come true. Captain Tony and his crew went above and beyond to make this journey extraordinary. The stunning beauty of the islands, the delectable cuisine, and the comfortable accommodations combined to create an experience that we will cherish forever.

If you are considering a charter in the British Virgin Islands, we wholeheartedly recommend Captain Tony and this exceptional crew. Their dedication to ensuring a memorable trip is unparalleled, and we are grateful for the memories they helped create. Don´t miss the opportunity to embark on the adventure of a lifetime with this outstanding team. We are already looking forward to our next voyage with them!

Thank you, Captain Tony and crew, for making our British Virgin Islands charter an experience beyond compare. You´ve set the bar incredibly high, and we are grateful for the memories that will last a lifetime.
