YACHT CREW

Captain: Ted EganCaptain: Ted Egan

Capt. Ted grew up in chilly Chicago, on the blustery shores of Lake Michigan, but left for the sunny climes of South Florida for school. This was followed by 25 years in the heart of American viticulture, the Napa Valley. There, Ted was involved in making and marketing wine worldwide. Eventually fate lead Ted to the sailing capital of Newport, and he has since pursued his love of yachting and the water. The BVI fell onto Ted's navigational chart 4 years ago and he has been providing a bespoke experience to his charter guests ever since. His intimate knowledge of the islands allows for a one of a kind island adventure.

Reviews for Keiran and Michelle, the Summer Season, 2018, crew aboard Catamaran BRAVEHEART

Crew Review

I spent 7 days with Kieran and Michelle cruising the BVI. They were such welcoming people! I remember them helping us board the boat from the dingy and being beyond helpful. Throughout the week they made very tasty cocktails, delectable food, and joined in on our 11 person group conversations. Kieran captained the boat from time to time and was a wonderful navigator. Additionally, they were incredible dive leaders- taking 3 of our group members down for the first time. Everyone enjoyed the diving with them so much! I would HIGHLY recommend them for a charter as I know they take such great care of their guests. By the end of the week, we felt like family and long friends. 

-Danielle (St Paul, MN)
