Ben Campion
Captain Ben here and ready to take you and your crew on the trip of a lifetime! After years cruising the Caribbean, I take pride in sharing with guests all the treasured spots I have discovered.

Once, a mermaid asked if I would join them, but I said, ´Nay, one of your kind I am already.´ I love to be under the surface even more than I like sailing on it. An avid free diver and certified Dive Master, rest assured your guided tours of the underwater reef gardens will be safe, fun and educational.

Sharing the beauty of the Caribbean and the lifestyle of a live aboard sailing crew is my passion and why I started chartering boats in the first place. During your trip, I will be capturing the best moments and memories with my camera or drone.

Whether you want an active charter exploring the land and sea or to just kick back and relax, it is up to you. It is your charter and my goal is to give you the vacation experience you crave.

Holle Gutierrez
Hey! I´m Chef Holle and I´ll be your culinary compatriot on your sea faring journey. I´m a simple, goofy, soul dedicated to adventure and reveling in the love of the universe.

In addition to creating culinary delights, I have dabbled professionally in the arts as a painter, dance instructor, and musician. While traveling in Bali for yoga teacher training, I recognized my calling to assist others in consciousness expansion. The sea is a perfect place for a deeper connection with nature and self.

Conversing with guests over a multitude of topics is a pleasure, when I´m not in the galley creating healthy, delicious food that arches over many preferences and ethnic cuisines. I´ve a creative spirit. In my galley, you´ll find new flavor combinations and you´ll probably ask for seconds.

Namaste ;)

1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating?
This is the second time we have sailed with Ben & Holle! We liked them so much the first time we just had to go back! They are a terrific team.
2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean?
The MCA is a great boat and always clean.
3. Was the yacht well ventilated?
Yes it was. We tried to use the A/C as little as possible because we had nice winds the whole time.
4. Was the food good and well presented?
Holle is an artist in the kitchen. Each meal was expertly prepare and presented. She & Ben go the extra mile to ensure high quality meals are served.
5. Did you like the area you sailed?
Yes. This is the fourth time I have been in the BVI and we are still finding new coves to explore.

Additional comments on your charter?
Ben & Holle also had a great assortment of games on board. Ben is also so fun to snorkel with because he sees animals and fish that the rest of us can´t see.

February 2020

It’s a challenge to find the words to describe this week. Our group of 6 was a combo of new and old friends. We’ll be leaving as established friends for life. Ben and Holle are nothing short of amazing. They have a rapport between that is loving, trusting, but most of all feels like effortless fun! Holle is a kind, soft spoken old soul who can throw down in the kitchen. It felt like Master chef all day, every day. I’m going to try to replicate her recipes… Ben is funny, witty and so knowledgeable about all things ocean. Ben had suggestions at every snorkeling stop with route and tips to see the most ocean creatures. We were extra spoiled with a spontaneous Lionfish lesson and snack. A million thank-yous from our CO & AZ crew! Ben and Holle, this trip wouldn’t have been the same on any other boat. You are meticulous in your seemingly effortless ability to host. We loved being spoiled and pampered during our magical escape from reality.

“Later down the road of life, I made a discovery that salt water was also good for the mental abrasions one inevitably acquires on land.”- Jimmy Buffet, A Pirate Looks at Fifty
When the idea of this trip first popped into my life, I was at a crossroads. Not sure of much else but that a couple of years later I would make the trip that my friends were describing over a couple of drinks on a cold November night in New England. Thank you both so much for making this trip amazing. I didn’t know what to expect, but I can say I am thoroughly amazed at the experience you have given us. Thank you for making us feel welcome in your home, for sharing your love and knowledge of the Caribbean, the incredible meals, and the comradery. You guys are something special and made this voyage phenomenal.
Thank you,The McFall´s

New Years Week 2019/20

“Our family of 5 (3 girls under 12) had a wonderful time aboard My Cherie Amour! Ben and Holle created a welcoming environment and treated us to an action packed, fun and memorable experience. We loved every minute of it and it was a great way to spend time together as a family and make memories that will last forever.

Ben is wise beyond his years - he really knows his boat, the islands, the secret spots and best highlights to share with his guests.

Holle is so calm and kind - and a killer cook who makes magic in a tiny galley kitchen - she made all of us feel at ease from the 1st day.

Together, we think they are awesome and we appreciated how intentional they were to customize our experience and make it so terrific.”
-Allen (Father)

“This has truly been a magical experience for our family. It has felt as though we have been guests in the most warm and welcoming home you can imagine. Ben and Holle take such pride in their boat and in these beautiful islands. Our daughters are already talking about how much they are going to miss Ben and Holle and My Cherie Amour (and so are their parents!).

I sincerely hope we have the opportunity to do this again.”
-Erin (Mother)

“I really enjoyed this week on your boat. Holle made amazing food! I mean, we were eating healthier in the middle of the sea than we do when we have a bunch of food at a store less than a mile away! I thought Ben was super funny and amazing! You guys seemed so full of energy even if you had 3 charters in a row.

You also taught me how careful we can be with our resources like fresh water, ice and food. I’m gonna miss you guys so much! Remember, were only a phone call away.”
-India (9 year old)

Christmas week 2019

“Although we had been looking forward to our Caribbean Christmas vacation for many months, none of us truly knew what we were venturing into. And though the expectations may have been set high and we were all filled with excitement and anticipation of what was to come, our week with Ben, Holle, and My Cherie Amour far surpassed our wildest imaginations!

We swam, snorkeled with sea turtles, jumped off the boat, the Willy T, and what seemed to be a 50’ high rock stemming out of the ocean floor. We sailed smooth water, rough water, dinghied to dinner, ate tacos on a floating barge, lounged on beaches, played many a card game of Dutch Blitz. I can make the list longer but I have only so much ink in this pen.

Ben is a very fine captain and his jovial personality makes him a joy to be around. His jokes created laughter, his plethora of noises made us chuckle, and his one-off comments made many an eye roll and often times would make a teenage daughter question whether she should laugh or not.

Holle is amazing in her own right. She can make dishes out of that little galley that rival some of the best restaurants I’ve been to. She is sincere and kind, all three of our daughters were drawn to her. The impromptu concert was fantastic; we all sat mesmerized.

This past week will be set in our memories forever. It will also be hard to replicate. It is our hope that we come back someday and give it a try. We hope to cross paths with Ben and Holle again, and this comes from a place of much sincerity. Thank you and God Bless!”

Wonderful trip, visited all my old haunts from 20 years ago. Sad to see all the damage , but rebuilding is progressing

2)How would you describe your Captain and crew? Were they Courteous? Helpful? Friendly? Attentive? Knowledgeable?

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.


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.


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!

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...


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!
Avery Louise B.

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.
Eli H

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.
Ruth van D.

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.
