Captain Ben is at your service! Get ready for his wonderful humor and a ´blast in paradise´. This experienced captain knows how to make the most of the beautiful crystal clear waters and warm sun. As a Florida native, Ben has spent his life in and on the ocean. After working on sailing vessels in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and United States, he returned to obtain his US Coast Guard license in Florida. Now Ben is back to where he likes to sail the most, the Virgin Islands! An avid SCUBA and free diver, he can be found in the water chasing colorful fish if he isn´t on a boat chasing the wind. His passion for the world underwater is rivaled only by his passion to share its mesmerizing beauty with others. Ben and Holle met while he was studying Communications at University of Central Florida and their tight bond creates a welcoming atmosphere that is sure to enhance your vacation in paradise!

Ahoy! Holle will be your artisanal galley master! Growing up, her passion was focused on everything creative. Holle is a fabulous cook, painter, musician, and dancer. Dinner and entertainment all-in-one you might say. In pursuit of sharing new adventures on the sea, she´ll take to the kitchen to prepare snacks, cocktails, and sumptuous entrees for you and your guests. She grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and resided in California and Colorado. But while living in Florida, the sun, blue waters and the Captain stole her heart. She looks forward to hosting you and fixing you something deliciously nutritious!

April 2019: Broker provided comments

1) How did you enjoy your cruising vacation?
Our sailing vacation was wonderful from start to finish.

2) How would you describe your Captain and crew? Were they Courteous? Helpful? Friendly? Attentive? Knowledgeable?
Captain Ben and Mate Holle were very enjoyable. Ben shared his sardonic wit freely and Holle was a gentle soul. They cared for our needs and were very attentive, They made it clear that we need only ask for snacks or beverages and prepared snack trays that were healthful and tasty.

Captain Ben was a very proficient skipper and Mate Holle was his able assistant. At no time did either of them seem out of their depth in running or managing the boat safely.

3) Tell me about your meals? Did the menus meet your expectations? Did your Chef and Crew pay close attention to your Preference Sheets?
Meals were expertly prepared. We marveled that no meal was repeated on our 7-day sail. Also of note was the fact that all the meals were of a healthy nature including vegan and meat dishes always in keeping with our various “preference sheets”.

4) How is the yacht? Is she clean and well-maintained? Were your cabins comfortable? Was the cockpit comfortable? Was there enough shade?
The boat was clean and apparently well maintained. The weather was suitable for open-hatch sailing. None the less, Captain Ben ran air conditioning for an interval each morning and night to dry and cool the cabin air. It definitely enhanced comfort in the cabins. At the half way point in our sail, Ben and Holle changed our bedding and bath linens, which enhanced our comfort.

5) What did you like most about the yacht? What did you like the least? If you could change anything, what would have made you happier?
I liked the 48’ catamaran’s layout and wouldn’t change a thing.

6) How did you find the pace and the itinerary of your vacation?
We set our own itinerary with Ben’s assistance, so we got just what we wanted. Snorkeling and water activities were high on the list of desired activities. It must be said that Ben is VERY adept at free diving and can provide much assistance and advice in this area.

7) Would you charter this yacht again? If not, please explain:
We would gladly charter My Cherie Amour again with Ben and Holle as crew.

WOW

My husband & I, along with 4 friends just returned .....WOW, we had a wonderful experience! Captain Ben & Holle were amazing hosts. Ben took us to a number of almost deserted
top-notch snorkeling locations as well as some of the usual spots most folks visit. Holle is a first-class
chef that produce amazing meals for the group and entertained us with her beautiful voice and guitar.Our group choose half provision which let us eat some meals on shore & when we did eat off the boat, Ben acted as our concierge and set up some nice dinners & lunches at local restaurants.
The boat was well provisioned, comfortable and outfitted with plenty of water toys. (Having done this trip before and crewed the boat ourselves, we have something to compare this trip against.)
Hiring the My Cherie Amour and crew is definitely the way to go. We can’t say enough good things
about the ship and crew. This is a “must do again” trip.

-Pam

Top Notch Hospitality

We had the best vacation ever with Captain Ben and Holle! From the moment we stepped onto the boat the hospitality and service was top notch. Holle is an amazing chef and Captain Ben knows all the spots! The hardest decision you will make while on vacation with Ben and Holle is what to drink!
-Eric

Outstanding Hotsts

Captain Ben & Chef Holle were outstanding hosts! They made us feel so very welcome the minute we set foot on ‘My Cherie Amour’. These fun, wonderful people were excellent navigators of the sea and the BVI surroundings. We can’t say enough about this experience and recommend it to anyone looking for fun and adventure on the open water. Until next time...

-Julie

Unforgettable experience...

We sailed 7 days on the My Cherie Amour and had an unforgettable experience. The boat is very accommodating. Amenities fit our lifestyle very well. The double hull Cat makes for a very smooth ride. We had two people prone to seasickness and neither one got sick. The Captain and staff enjoyed setting up land trips, swimming, snorkeling and paddle boarding for us. One memorable take away was docking in the evening, sitting at the aft deck table and eating fresh Calamari.
We will return.
JD Duncan and family

Highlight of our summer....

We´ve had the privilege of sailing both the Med and the Caribbean, and cannot recommend the experience more highly. Captain Ben and his crew have been consistently both professional and personable, and have become the highlight of our summers. Looking forward to returning next year!

Best vacation ever...

We cruised with My Cherie Amour in the Leewards and it was our best vacation ever. The food, diving, snorkeling, sailing, and overall experience was fantastic. Ben was delightful and kept us all entertained with his smiling demeanor and comedy imitations.

Great vacations...

We have cruised with My Cherie Amour and Ben in both the Med and the Caribbean. Our extended family absolutely love him and the joy he brings to our sailing vacations.

Unforgettable college reunion...

My friends & I had an unforgettable college reunion, after 30 years, sailing around the Windward islands on My Cheri Amour. The captain & crew provided amazing service and great company. We loved snorkeling, fishing, and swimming off of private beaches. It was all heavenly.
