YACHT INTRODUCTION

Altesse is a beautiful 2013 Lagoon 560, able to accommodate 8 guests in 4 queen size cabins, or 3 queen cabins and a fun bunk room for kids. Lagoon 560s are widely acknowledged as the best charter boats on the market, due to their bright and spacious cabins, beautiful internal relaxation areas and wide range of comfortable lounging and dining spaces. 
But Altesse is even better. In 2015 she went through a full refit to specifically enhance the experience for charter guests, through additions such as full dining capability on the flybridge, enhancements to the interior to give her a sophisticated European twist and a custom built 'champagne deck' which extends the cockpit and offers a unique and hugely popular additional relaxation and jumping area. She also has a brand new 70HP dinghy, inclusive diving for up to five guests, all new water toys (including an 8 man floating island), new linen, crockery and furnishings throughout reflecting the refined taste of the French owner, not to mention a wine cellar including a range of superior French organic wine. So whether you want activity and exhilaration, or rest and relaxation, Altesse and her award winning crew, who have been chartering in the BVI for 5 years, will ensure that you get everything you wished for and more.

YACHT CREW

Captain: Stefan Hübbe (46)

Chloe and Stefan have lived, cruised and worked together for over 10 years. They have sailed over 45,000 nm between them on their own yachts (including the Pacific, Indian Ocean, Red Sea and Mediterranean) and have hosted charters on 43-50ft monohulls and catamarans in the Caribbean and Latin America.

Stefan was born in Berlin, Germany, and developed a love of the wind and sea as a teenager, sailing his first dingy at the age of 16. He got his masters in Mechanical Engineering and has worked for Daimler-Benz, Procter & Gamble, GM and Connex; which lead him to a career in managing specialist multimillion dollar engineering projects in Australia - the only piece of land he considers home. His first love was always the ocean, however, so he decided to return to Europe the slow way; on his own yacht over the Pacific Ocean, getting as far as Bali before meeting Chloe, which changed his life's path forever.

Stefan continued sailing with Chloe over the Indian Ocean, Red Sea and the Mediterranean to the Canary Islands, where he decided it was time for a new project so started designing and building luxurious houseboats in Berlin. He loved the business but missed the ocean, so 13 houseboats later, Chloe and Stefan bought yet another sailing yacht to cruise the Caribbean.

In his free time, Stefan is a bit of a merman: spear fisher, free diver, kite surfer, surfer, windsurfer...and guitarist.

Chef & 1st Mate: Chloe Chand (39)

Chloe was born in London, England and had a professional career in project management before developing an aversion to chairs and retrained to become a teacher, working for various charities and universities. Her passion in education and anthropology led her to Bali in 2007, where she met Stefan and initially came aboard his yacht as crew... after 10 years and 18,000nm together, she has finally been promoted to first mate.

Chloe's extensive travels have inspired her international cuisine, which favours fresh, healthy, rainbow-colored and seriously flavorful recipes. Italian, Spanish and Greek food is at the forefront of her culinary repertoire, as well as more exotic influences from South East Asia, India and Morocco.

Chloe's lifetime dedication to yoga practice has led her to getting certified in teaching Ashtanga yoga. In her free time she can be found practicing yoga, playing the guitar, island-hopping on the SUP or freediving.

Stefan and Chloe are looking forward to welcoming your clients aboard the luxury, custom-built ALTESSE.

We've had plenty of "Sarahnades" and "Richslaps" this week, which is exactly what keeps us coming back!  We've seen gorgeous reefs, amazing animals, beautiful islands and miles and miles of turquoise waters.  But the feature that will bring us back next year, after all this amazement, is the crew: Sarah and Rich.  They made us feel simultaneously adventurous and at home.  We will only sail with them and we will follow wherever they go!  And if Sarah made a delivery food service, we would definitely subscribe!
We are ready for next year!

There are vacations you embark upon with good friends and there are those vacations where you make new friends.  In the last seven days we have been shown some truly beautiful places, we've been treated to some insanely delicious meals and we now have two great friends in Richard and Sarah.  Thank you for the hospitality, the kindness, the abundance of ice and, most importantly, not giving Simos a loaded staple gun!

Richard and Sarah,
To bring our best friends and family to the BVI for my 60th was a dream event and you have surpassed my highest expectations on every level!  The perfect itinerary, gourmet food and expert guidance along the way, were all superlative.
Thanks for calmly managing the logistics between boats and helping introduce newcomers to these amazing islands.  And for making sure that our three teenagers had a brilliant time every day.
You are both professional and fun - the perfect hosts for the BVI. Deep gratitude from all of us.  See you again very soon!

One of the most amazing trips we have all had together.  We all travel together several times a year and this trip far exceeded our expectations.  The food Sarah made was five star dining at its best.  Richard was always there to deliver all our needs from drinks to water sports.  Their attention to detail was superb.  We are already talking and planning a return visit to see all the spots that Sarah and Richard spoke about, but that we couldn’t fit in on this trip.  Cheers to Sarah and Richard and the AMAZING Altesse!!

Thank you for such an amazing trip!  It was incredible from the start to the finish, and it was a treat to get to know you and Rich along the way.  Just to echo Wistar, you all just worked so hard to make the trip perfect, yet kept it so fun and relaxed, and made it all seem effortless.  I hope we have the chance to all do it again!

We got home and walked through our front door at five o’clock yesterday, and Alex turned to me and pointed out in a sad voice that it was captain’s cocktail hour.  I did have a beer, but it was not even close to the same as being on Altesse 😢.

Nothing we could write would do this trip justice.  Sarah and Richard went above and beyond to set this trip apart from others.  Between the gourmet food, snorkeling, water sports, paddle board races and, our favorite, Captain's Cocktail Hour, we truly could not have asked for more.  There is no better way to visit the BVI than with Sarah and Rich on Altesse.  Thank your everything!
Love

ksWe cannot express enough how truly special our trip was on the Altesse. You worked so hard to give us such an exquisite vacation and it was exactly that! Our meals were beautifully prepared and our days were planned to perfection! Going through our pictures, we couldn’t believe how much we did and yet it was so relaxing. We rather miss having our morning update and hearing about the adventures on your run. It’s always a concern when you repeat a trip and try to create magic a second time. This trip was such a different experience and we dearly loved every second of our time with you and Rich.
Jeff has already spoken at length to one of his dear friends about getting a group together for another trip on the Altesse! We are ready to sail again as soon as we can make it work for everyone’s schedule!  
We will be in touch:))

Charter guests from the "Show Me" state said of their week aboard catamaran ALTESSE:

Thank you Sarah and Richard for being the most wonderful hosts for our week on Altesse. The experience far exceeded our expectations and we had a perfect week exploring the BVI. Our first trip and Sarah and Richard provided great recommendations for our group. A mix of snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding, kayaking, exploring, eating and drinking. And speaking of eating - every meal provided by Sarah was an experience. From the presentation to the variety and taste of the food, it was too notch. We were pampered and spoiled in every way. Trip of a lifetime and we will definitely be back to explore more of the BVI with Sarah and Richard. We will miss the BVI and Altesse - we will be back!

New Years week guests aboard ALTESSE said:

Charter was awesome and the trip was great! Great yacht for 6-8 people and our crew was simply amazing! All the water toys were included and the BVIs are amazing. Rich & Sarah could not have been more professional! They were great and handled our every request. I would highly recommend Rich & Sarah. They worked hard 24/7 to ensure our satisfaction. Sarah prepared the meals perfectly – food was well balanced and great selection.

Dear Sarah and Rich,

There are many good yacht captains and many good chefs, hosts and 'first mates' in this world, but you two - individually and as a team - are extraordinary. Your passion for excellence, in all aspects of this trips as evident and your love of the 'sunny VI' even more so. Thank you for your attention to every detail, your anticipation and planning of all the food, activities, entertainment and whims. You made my trip here truly a 'trip of a lifetime'. Keep smiling, keep laughing and keep following your dreams

Guests aboard ALTESSE in mid-November, 2016 had this to say:

Sarah and Rich,

Thanks for a truly extraordinary and memorable week. We couldn't have conceived of a more perfect vacation/50th birthday and anniversary celebration with our dearest friends. You two are the perfect team - a phenomenal marriage of grace, energy and exceptional capability. From Sarah's 5 star cookery; Captains cocktail hour and itinerary to Richard's handling of the yacht; dive mastery; and your combined tour guiding, there simply aren't enough superlatives to capture all the perfect moments. Your home - Altesse - stands by herself: gorgeous and enormous, and your neighborhood - the BVI - what a match! It was a pleasure and a privilege to get to know you and share the week. You guys are awesome and no doubt our paths will cross again!

Guests with Richard and Sarah on ALTESSE in early June, 2016, say:

Dear Sarah and Rich,

This boat is like the presidential suite at the world's finest hotel. The food similar to a 5 star restaurant, it's every single meal exceeding all of our expectations. The planning of the itinerary and the sailing felt like we were guided by locals who knew the greatest treasures of the land. But we have learned that the best and most special part of life are the people you meet along the way. Sarah and Rich, you are special, kind, generous, professional, outgoing knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile. This trip was fabulous, but extra-special as we were so fortunate to spend our time with the two of you. 

 See you next year!
