Crew

Captain: Brendan Ronan

Nationality: USA

Captain Brendan Ronan

Brendan fell in love with sailing watching the 1983 America’s Cup in Newport (still jokes that he is upset that we lost that one) and fantasized of a life aboard a boat ever since. Growing up in New Hampshire, he spent as much time as possible either in or on the frigid water at his families summers house in Maine, learning and enjoying every moment away from dry land. Then he went off to college in Florida, chasing the warm weather and adventure he always dreamed of. He has always had a love for travel and scoured the travel magazines looking at the exotic lands and places he wanted to see and experience. As they say, life gets in the way sometimes and until a few years ago he would say “my international travel experience was pretty much limited to EPCOT!” Ha Ha. After a career in NYC mixing sound for Television and Film and then reconnecting with with his High School dream girl Karen (she was the super hot athletic girl, he was the dorkish A/V squad type) he decided there was no time like the present to make the most of life and make the move to Florida and then into the yachting world so he could show people the natural beauty and experiences of the Virgin Islands! Brendan loves meeting and entertaining new friends each charter and his Captain's drinks of the day are something to look forward to! He loves making drinks for his guests as it is a great time of the day to relax and enjoy friends and family while watching the sunset! Whether sailing or motoring to the next adventure, you will always find Brendan incredibly happy with a smile on his face. Brendan enjoys every minute of every day, living the life he dreamed of for so long, and truly appreciates even the smallest things that life has to offer. There is no doubt you will enjoy spending time with Brendan as he is so incredibly helpful and fun and makes people around him feel happy and special too.

Chef Karen Rogers

Karen grew up in New Hampshire and moved to Florida for college, following her love of athletics but mainly following her love of the warm weather. Her true passion for traveling blossomed in graduate school when her fellow students (who were from Europe) invited her over, and off she went living the backpack life! Eventually, her new career as a commercial real estate broker finally pulled her back home but it didn’t take her long to figure out that she could work and travel too! Whatever rainbow or fun adventure she was chasing, she always went back to Florida to work a little and spend time with her wonderful family. For years she lived and loved her extensive travels all over the world, meeting new people, and experiencing new cultures and foods, so when the opportunity to work on a yacht came up in a conversation on a plane to Hungary, she was all in! She then found another perfect blend of what she loved in life…travel, food, adventures, and people! So, Karen started her career in yachting in Croatia where she began cooking for guests on their magical vacations. She creates delicious meals, snacks, and treats for her guests that make their spirits and their tummies happy! She has been honing her skills in the Virgin Islands for the past few years where she loves preparing delicious food for her guests and making sure they eat to their heart's content! After all of her travels around this amazing world, it is incredible that she reconnected with her high school friend, Brendan (who was almost literally the boy next door) and they started the next chapter of their lives together! You may never find another person like Karen in this amazing world, the combination of her magnetic smile and infectious laugh, incredible personality and love for people, animals, and nature will put a smile on your face for a long long time, even after you return from your vacation in paradise.

In my 16 years of living you made the best filet ever. The tubing was also legendary. Thank you so much for the best trip I have ever been on in my life. Karen, thank you for all of the work you put into your breakfasts, lunches and dinners, they were some of the best Ive ever had. Brendan, thank you for all the patience you had while me and Luke were trying to climb on the innertube. Thanks to both of you for being kind and enthusiastic and being the best crew ever!

There are not words to express how thankful we are to have had you two to show us your beautiful second home. We had the absolute best time! I can't picture any people better to have hosted us; we are so grateful. You two have the kindest hearts and are so good at what you do! Thank you!

Karen & Brendan,
We can't begin to thank you enough for everything you've done to make this trip unforgettable. You exceeded every expectation that we had and the minute we boarded you welcomed us with open arms and made us feel like family. Your level of service and patience in accommodating this crazy party of nine was incredible. Every moment was filled with lots of love and laughter, and hear some of our favorite memories...drinks of the day, virg smashing her knee before leaving the dock, sasquatch. Jar, thumpers, black magic, the never ending sheet cake, wakeboarding and tubing, story time with B, sound of music singalongs, Aly and Saras naps, seabass's dance moved, the chilean rowing team, boy scouts, cabins on the raft, steve's morning coffee, oscar's revenge laugh, the diving competitions, drone pics, the amazing sweet night, yamy, poopy g, and so much more!! lol A very special shoutout to Chef special K's cooking and for accommodating all the picky eaters (cant wait for you to cater our weddings!) We'll miss you immensely and can't wait for our paths to cross again...looking forward to maggie Wednesday's! With love and gratitude, The Jiminez & Valdez fams

I truly cannot express how grateful we are for the patience and care that you showed for all of our kids. It means the world to us and we will never forget it.

Best boat team ever! Thanks for helping us make some great memories with the nieces and nephews! The food was just amazing, Karen! And B- you are a grillmaster! And drinkmaster! You gave us a stress-free week with 4 teenagers – so relaxing and enjoyable!
We will recommend you both (the B&K team) to our friends who might love to experience the amazing vacation we had.

Dear Brendan and Karen,

We had the best vacation! We are giving you a 10/10. This vacation was beyond our expectations! You were like family! So kind and sincere with every day and each fabulous meal and snack. We want to follow you on your cooking show “Island Eats With Karen”. The lilly pad was the best seat on the sea. The snorkeling, the fish, the sights, were some unforgettable sights! The trails had awesome views, we got so many great pictures. Thank you for Brewer's Bay – Aiden was amazed by the flights and planes. Elle's first tubing adventure was fun. Molly loved feeding the goats – thank you for taking here over. Hannah loved the private tour and she promises to watch the end of Black Sails. Erik loved being with his family all week and relaxing. They loved seeing the turtles and the other ocean life. Scott loved the adventures on Cruz and Caneel Bay and the sailing though all the turquoise waters sailing through Cinnamon Bay to wave at Kenny Chesney. Jen loved all the special celebrations, graduations, anniversaries, and birthdays! You did it all with love and we are all so grateful!!

Captain B and special K!

You guys were literally amazing. I loved this trip so so so much. One of the best trips that I have been on. You guys were so fun and I will definitely miss you! You always made me laugh so much and I don’t think I was down once this trip! Thank you so much for spoiling me!
June 2022
This has been one of the best trips of my life. Karen and Brendan made this trip more than I could ask for. They gave us experiences, stories, and more fun than I could ever ask for. I would come back in a heartbeat. Cooking was absolutely phenomenal. They made sure to capture every precious moment. I will never forget this trip!

Karen and Brendan,

What a trip of a lifetime! Thank you both for taking such a great care of us and sailing us to the most beautiful places in the USVI. The snorkeling on this trip has been the best I have ever experienced and your knowledge of the coves to find it was magical. The food was outstanding throughout the week and your cheerful presentation made every meal an experience. Finally, thank you for joining our group as though you were part of our friendship group. You guys are wonderful and meeting you was a blessing. You are forever our friends and I wish you both the best life has to offer in the future. Thank you for an amazing week on these beautiful waters! With love!

I had the most wonderful trip – once in a lifetime. It was so much fun and you forced me to eat way too much! So very delicious. You two are beyond amazing and I cannot thank you enough for everything I will treasure the memories made. Wishing you all the best this world has to offer to you two! Thank you for everything!!
April 2022
Thanks for the food, the laughter and the care and especially the wonderful drinks of the day. I cant tell you how much I especially appreciated how Brendan always told me “good job” as I gracefully (not!) entered and entered the dinghy. This week was full of memories we will never forget and hopefully we can do it again in the future. Karen makes the best desserts!

Karen and Brendan,

It was worth the 2 year wait! We had planned this trip years ago and we were nervous we would miss the opportunity for our families. This trip blew our wildest expectations. Brendan was an incredible captain and host, always patient and catering to our desires to spend as much time as possible in the water. You could tell how much he genuinely enjoyed our knuckleheads playing in the water. The snorkeling spots were incredible! Our kids had a ton of fun being towed by the dinghy.

Karen was an amazing chef and more importantly, incredibly thoughtful about our food restrictions. The meals were delicious and you could tell that she took great investment in our happiness!

The week went by way too fast! We cannot wait until our paths cross again! xoxo
March 2022
Thanks for a luxurious week of sunsets, cocktails, snorkeling and water sports. Brendan refused to let our families lift a finger taking care of everything and Karen not only was a phenomenal cook but she went out of her way to make sure we had everything we desired! The amazing views of the Virgin Islands will never be forgotten. Thanks for all the wonderful memories. Thank you so much for helping our family make the most amazing memories – Karen, your cooking was spectacular and Brendan you catered to our children and made sure they were having fun (safely) which was such a task since we have daredevils at time. Endless thanks to you both. You were amazing! Love you guys and wish you the best! Miss you already!

We had a great time. Rumba was in very good shape. The layout of the boat was perfect for our group. We took advantage of the roomy flybridge. The lounge area on the bow was nicely cushioned. The staterooms were comfortable and the AC and plumbing all worked perfectly.

Captain Brendan was terrific. He was very quick to understand our interests and come up with an itinerary that met them. Prior to the charter we expressed interest in getting us all out on kayaks and they came equipped with three inflatable kayaks that we enjoyed in several anchorages. Brendan gave us lots of opportunity to take the helm and sail Rumba, which we enjoy doing. He took us to several pretty snorkeling spots. He anticipated our every need and interest.

Chef Karen was terrific as well. All of the meals were excellent. I was amazed at how we had fresh baked muffins every morning. In our preference sheet we expressed interest in fresh local sea food and Karen served us delicious local lobster tails, buttery sea bass and other terrific meals. All of our food and beverage preferences were met. The boat was fully stocked with the beverages we asked for. Brendan's drink-of-the-day was highly anticipated and enjoyed at cocktail hour each afternoon.

Brendan and Karen were delightful and fun to spend the week with. We highly recommend them and Rumba. Should we return to the Virgin Islands next season which is a distinct possibility, we will want to be with them and on Rumba again. Thanks for another great boat and crew selection for us.
March 2022
Karen and Brendan,

Where do I begin? We have been so looking forward to this trip. We knew I would be awesome. We already knew we loved the USVI's but never did I imagine how amazing this trip would be with the two of you. I cannot imagine doing another charter without the two of you. Not only did you give us top notch service, but watching the two of you as a team was beautiful. You are a perfect match and work beautifully together. Can I say the 'two of you' one more time lol :).

Thank you for making this trip one that we will be talking about for years to come. The trip of a lifetime. We are already looking forward to rebooking with you in 2 years. Whatever boat you are on, we will be there.

And I hope you’ll agree that we are leaving with you as not just captain and chef, + Chris and Mandy, but as friends. Next we see you in Michigan. There...I've asked like 5 times, not you much come visit. Forever grateful – Chris and Mandy.

Karen and Brendan,

What an amazing adventure we had sailing with you! This was our first sailing trip in the VI and will not be our last. Karen – your creativity and excellence made every meal an adventure. We feel like we were eating at a 5-star restaurant every day and night! Your easy going nature and partnership with Brendan kept us sailing along! Brendan – we all so appreciated your knowledge of the islands, you sailing experience and your dedication to customer service. Your cocktail of the day was always an enjoyable event to look forward to each evening! We appreciate how personal you also take safety and keeping all passengers happy and content. Not an easy task with two diverse groups of boaters.

The trip brought us all closer together as friends and would not have happened without your desire to make this an exceptional vacation! We are very grateful! All my best and hope to see you again!
March 2022
Karen and Brendan,

Fantastic trip! You all treated us like family. I will forever be grateful.
March 2022
We couldn't have had a better week Brendan and Karen are enthusiastic and gracious hosts. They worked incredibly hard to ensure our great time with great success. They quickly read their guests and create the perfect environment. Their recommendations were perfect. They create a fabulous atmosphere with their loving interactions with each other. Karen went above and beyond in creating meals, baking desserts, making snacks, insuring everyone was always well fed and accommodated. Brendans drink of the day was always delish and a daily highlight. His captain skills made us feel safe and secure with a light touch and a great sense of humor. Everyday he gave us great advice and choices for the itinerary.

Our group has chartered together before and we would happy to be on their boat again. 5 stars!

They anticipated every desire and need!
