Stu & Hannah met in 2013 in their home town of Southampton. Stu was working on a megayacht, and during his 2nd season, whilst on a period of leave, he met Hannah. They both decided to pursue a career together, and after a season in Turkey, went to the BVI to work on catamarans.
Having grown up in Scotland, a stone’s throw from the sea, Stu loved being on and around the water since a very young age. In 2011 he decided to pursue one of his dreams, sailing. After a year of training which included a transAtlantic crossing.
Stu loves to share his knowledge of yachting and the local marine life. He has a passion for free diving, spear fishing, scuba diving, game fishing and all water sports.
Hannah has worked in multiple areas of hospitality throughout her career and is a graduate of the award-winning Ashburton School of Cookery. She loves creating fun, fresh foods that look and taste amazing. Hannah has a very bubbly personality and loves the social side of her work and she will make you laugh with her funny stories.
Stu & Hannah are an easy going couple that will make sure your charter is based around you. Whether it is your 1st or 5th time to the BVI or the Bahamas, Stu & Hannah will take you to explore all the unique locations the islands have to offer, from the must see highlights to the lesser known anchorages and private coves.

This is our 3rd trip we took within 11 months. The main reason for this is your amazing crew, Stu and Hannah. Every time we are on their boat the experience is amazing. From the friendly and outstanding service to the amazing food to the interactive boating experience.
My experience has beenin the hospitality industry, managing 5 star resorts, and both Stu and Hannah strive to provide the best guest experience from the moment you step on board till the moment you step off board. Truly two exceptional crew members that represent your boat very well. My wife and I cannot wait to book another trip with Stu and Hannah in the BVI.
Thankyou so much for another outstanding vacation.

Our entire family made memories with you two that will last forever. Its always a challenge to get 3 so very different young adults to have so much fun that they’ll remember it forever and you guys succeeded.
This trip went far beyond our expectations and it is because you gave us such impeccable service and so many laughs!
The food, the games, the places we saw together will forever be the fondest of memories. Thank you for that!
Good luck to an awesome couple and keep in touch! Best New Years Eve ever.
