Vienna Description

THE YACHT Vienna is brand new for the 2023 season and she is the first Fountaine Pajot Aura 51 Catamaran in luxury crewed yacht charter in the BVI. The Aura 51 is the most modern catamaran design available today, exquisitely and innovatively designed by the Beret Racoupeau design group and built by Fountaine Pajot - one of the largest and most renowned French catamaran builders in the world. THE CONCEPT A five-star luxury sailing yacht that moves through beautiful seascapes so that you never tire of the views. Intimate and immaculate en suite accommodation, contemporary French design, an abundance of comfortable spaces throughout to kick back and relax, all the water toys you could wish for, al fresco dining with full-service breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is Vienna … THE SPACE Vienna has over 3000 sq. ft of living space across three levels above and below decks. With four en suite staterooms, accommodating up to 8 guests - all with TV, stereo and air conditioning - the accommodation would rate a solid 5 on Tripadvisor. The saloon has a centre island dividing the galley on the port side from the dining table on the starboard side. There is also a lounge seat and chaise longue in the saloon - perfect for reading or having a morning coffee. ABOVE DECKS The saloon opens completely and seamlessly to the cockpit for picture-perfect dining around the large cockpit table and cockpit seating for fifteen or more. A few steps up to the helm position brings you to the large lounge area on the bridge deck where the generous social seating arrangement and a sunbathing deck provide a fabulous location from which to take in the surrounding tropical beauty - cocktail or coffee in hand. Aft of the cockpit, wide transom steps and transom ladders give easy access to the cobalt Caribbean waters. There is also a ‘tender lift’- a platform between the two hull transoms that doubles as storage for the dinghy and a submersible dive and swim platform when lowered. Moving forward along the expansive and open side decks gives access to the foredeck seating area and bow trampolines - a great spot from which to catch up on chat with friends or immerse yourself in a good read.

CaptainPieter Gerber

Chef
ChefTheresa Jacobs
NationalitySouth African


Pieter has been involved in sailing for the past 22 years. His sailing skills were honed sailing along the east and west coasts of South Africa, notorious for its unpredictable weather. He spent most of his time racing his own sailing yacht in around the cans as well as offshore regattas from his home base at Royal Cape Yacht Club in Cape Town. He has experience in sailing both monohulls and catamarans on extended passages, including a passage with Theresa across the Atlantic Ocean. All of these events has provided him with a wealth of stories and knowledge which he loves to share with guests. Although he has sailed most of the Windward Islands, the British Virgin Islands is their favorite place to be. He is looking forward to showing your clients the beauty of the islands and experience what they have to offer.

Theresa´s style is offering fresh, nutritious food, while enjoying tropical island cuisine. Her attention to detail and complimentary fuss free spin on old favourites will have you asking for the recipe in no time! Theresa has travelled the world on her time working on the Queen Elizabeth II Cruise Ship and thus incorporates all different cultures and cuisines to her menu. She is comfortable with all dietary needs and will tailor menus for all requirements.

They have been sailing together for the past 15 years, sharing their passion for adventure and the sea. They have sailed the whole South African coastline including Cape Point, notorious for its stormy weather. They crossed the Atlantic Ocean on their 44ft monohull on an unforgettable journey. Since then they have spent most of this time exploring the Caribbean islands. Their experiences have helped them to make people, even first time charter guests, feel at ease and at home on their boat helping everyone relax and make the most of their time on board.

They look forward to welcoming all walks of life onboard!

Vienna Guest Reviews

Christmas 2023!

Anyone that gets the opportunity to experience the BVI’s with Theresa and Pieter is in for a trip of a lifetime!!!
Everything about this charter was beyond excellent.
First of all, Theresa and Pieter are fabulous.
So knowledgeable about the area and any and all weather conditions.
The food was wonderful, beautifully presented and very healthy.
The accommodations on the boat were lovely and we loved snorkeling and paddle boarding.
I believe Haly’s highlight was tubing in the Atlantic Ocean!!!
We all hope we can join them another time for another magical week!!!
Happy New Year!!!

Testimonial

My family and I just finished a week in the BVI with Captain Pieter and Theresa as our hosts. We were completely blown away by the experience in the BVI. From the moment we stepped aboard we were taken perfect care of. Captain Pieter had put together a suggested itinerary that was perfect for our family. Every stop was great! He went above and beyond to find the best SCUBA operators for us that could offer the custom, private tips we were looking for. Theresa in the galley day and night, we were never hungry. We were not easy passengers to fee either with one of our group celiac and another dairy intolerant. Nevertheless, she presented us with nonstop gourmet dishes. I cannot imagine better hosts or more competent crew than Pieter and Theresa!

Testimonial

Captain Pieter and Chef Theresa assured the entire vacation exceeded our expectations by far! They are meticulous about ever detail of the experience. They are extremely experienced crew having boated in nearly every type of situation and weather...and they´re FUN! The meals wer great, made even better by great conversation. We go lucky with perfect weather, the one thing the captain can´t control! But what they CAN control, they do it perfectly.

Testimonial

Captain Pieter and Chef Theresa exceeded our expectations in ever way! The communication we received prior to arriving was quick and responsive and very much appreciated! They were with us every step of the way. We were warmly welcomed about and quickly became very comfortable with them both, it was obvious they knew what they were doing. We visited several bays, plenty of snorkeling, and there was always a snack or meal and drinks at the perfect time each day. Theresa is an amazing cook, especially given the size of the galley on the yacht. she whipped up gourmet snacks and meals every day. Pieter managed the bar for our enjoyment and coordinated snorkeling as often as we pleased along wit some very interesting hikes. It was really enjoyable hearing their sailing stories! It is not often that we can write such a glowing report on an experience like this. We felt so fortunate to have Pieter and Theresa as our crew!

Valentina & Simone,
Thank you very much for an amazing week! This is our first charter in the BVI and will definitely not be our last. You both made an amazing impression. You made us feel very welcome and at home... ´ your home´ . VIENNA was fantastic and you kept it very clean and well organized. The food and drinks were delicious, maybe the margaritas were too good! We look forward to seeing you both again.

VIENNA - April 2023

Valentina and Simone,
Wow! What a great week! Loved the boat, and you kept it so immaculate. The snorkeling in Anegada was the best we´ve ever done! Simone´s dinners were expertly made and the desserts were especially memorable. It was great meeting and getting to know you both this week. You both take your commitment to making your guests experience excellent to heart. A super week in Paradise. Thank you so much!
