Captain Barend (Bertie) Chapman originally from Cape Town South Africa, graduated from university of UJ as a Engineering Metallurgist and later obtained his Production Management Diploma. He worked for De Beers in the Synthetic Diamond Division for some thirty years.

He has sailed, snorkeled and deep sea fished from the Mozambican coast, to Sodwana Bay and St Lucia, the coast of Natal South Africa, Port Alfred (Eastern Cape) and most of Western Cape. For the past six years he and his wife/First Mate Teresa have pursued their dream of owning their own Yacht and becoming full time sailors. Their circumnavigation started in December 2014 when they took part in a Governors Cup Yacht Race from Cape Town to St Helena. They cruised Brazil´s coastline for six months, French Guyana river water ways and coastline for five months and thereafter sailed on to Grenada and Caribbean. They fell in love with USVI/BVI and decided to stay, they are now in their fourth charter season in the BVI and USVI.

First Mate Teresa Chapman, a Customer Service professional from Cape Town South Africa has shared Bertie´s dream and can not wait to welcome you on board Outback. Teresa has the warmest heart and in no time you will feel at home and know that you will be taken great care of on your adventure. She loves to entertain and to prepare meals to each and every person´s satisfaction. Her motto is to make you feel special, relaxed and to share the beauty that the BVI and USVI Islands have to offer.

Outback is family friendly and LOVES to have babies aboard!

Outback Guest Reviews

Gracious Hosts

What more gracious hosts there could be?
Teresa and Bertie know hospitality. There are none better. From the expert captain, the ´penalty´ shots, the chef extraordinaire, the incredible islands, and spending our 50th wedding anniversary onboard. Could not have asked for anything more.

Unforgettable Experience

We love y´all. What a fantastic experience for our family. You anticipated our every need long before we thought to ask. We felt safe in the wisdom of our legendary Captain Berite, and loved by the exquisite Chef Teresa. Teresa´s gourmet food made the experience of every meal something to look forward to. We have never eaten this well for a week straight. The food was tasty and healthy.

We loved the knowledge of the Virgin Islands shared by Bertie, and his willingness to share his opinions on virtually any topic.

We don´t want any other Captain and Chef. Thank y´all for the unforgettable experience - of a lifetime!

Awesome Time!

Awesome time!
Enjoyed the whole week.
Great crew.
Will do again in a heartbeat.

Amazing Hospitality

love you both! Thank you for your amazing hospitality and friendliness! This trip was amazing. I can´t wait to come back and party with both of you. Wish you all the best.

Memories of a Lifetime

Hard to imagine that a simple ´Thank you´ properly meets the tall order of how much you both have inspired me to live life on my terms and let the water call my name as loudly as it did for the both of you!
Seriously THANK YOU!
I pray that you both continue to have safe travels - with company that keeps you smiling. Memories of a lifetime. Please let´s stay in touch.

It Was A Privilege

Thank you so much for sharing your boat and the USVI with us. Your recommendations were perfect from the hikes with beautiful views to the quiet bays for snorkeling to the quaint shops. We truly enjoyed our very relaxing vacation. Thanks Captain for a smooth ride. Teresa, your food was amazing and beautifully presented. I will definitely use some of your techniques to up my game :)
We also enjoyed the game nights. It was a privilege to spend the week in your company.
