MEET THE CREW:
Captain: Keith Allen
First Mate/Chef: Ellie Archer
Keith has always had an adventurous spirit, inherited from an extremely nomadic family, mostly spread between Kenya, the U.K., U.S.A. and of course Australia, where he grew up. He has been fortunate enough to have been raised as a well travelled youth which enabled him to grow into someone who can build rapport and friendships with people from many different walks of life and cultures. A trait invaluable when considering the multicultural and close-knit conditions living and working aboard a yacht.
Keith has sailed around most of the windward isles, from St Maarten to Grenada; the Dutch Caribbean, Panama, the Andalusian coast of Spain, Portugal, Morocco and the Greek Islands in the Saronic Gulf of the Mediterranean. He has also spent time working on a superyacht that sailed up the east coast of the United States from Fort Lauderdale to Rhode Island but realized his heart and true passion was in sailing and smaller boats. Keith's favorite part about skippering on yachts is hunting for unique bays and the little hidden gems on the islands; from the best beach bars to reef full of life that can only be reached by boat.
Ellie grew up in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, where her love for cooking (especially that of sweet treats!) began with the afternoon "lessons" she'd have with her neighbor and mother. Over the years she continued that passion, preparing meals for her family and friends. As she grew older, she hosted dinner and drinks gatherings at her home, where her love for hosting and event planning really took off. Ellie has worked in the customer service industry from a young age, and loves the fast-paced and energetic nature of this profession. She has also grown up in the outdoors, having been a member of the Australian Scout Movement for over a decade, which expanded her passion for sports such as sailing, skiing and rock climbing.
Ellie is now on her second season of charter, having completed a season in the beautiful Greek Saronic Islands. She loved the warmth and unrivaled hospitality that only local island people can provide, and cannot wait to continue experiencing this in the Caribbean.
On charter, Ellie loves nothing more than to see clients genuinely enjoying themselves under her care, and understands that it's the small details that really make a trip memorable. With her and Keith's enthusiasm and knowledge, they know that after a week with them, guests will leave having just experienced one of the best weeks of their lives.
Wonderful Escape From Covid!
Thank you Keith and Jessa for a wonderful escape from COVID.
Unfortunately, we couldn't escape the tropical storm. But some how we
managed to make tasty lemonade from the "lemons" Mother Nature gave
We still managed to have countless hours of snorklling, sailing and
seeing the beautiful USVI.
Jessa prepared delicious meals, Captain Keith made some tasty
cocktails and of course there was A LOT of Caymus!!!
This was truly a trip our family will never forget. Thank you for your
wonderfully kind and laid-back demeanor that made game time that much
Vacation was Extra Special!
Thank you for making this long awaited family vacation extra special. It truly exceeded all our expectations. We all love St John, but St John from the water is truly magnificent! Thank you for your thoughtful conversation and including the kids in sailing and navigation. Thank you for all the delicious meals, so creative and beautifully prepared. Thank you for the scraps to feed the fish and the sunset happy hours! This trip will always hold a special place in our hearts! With much gratitude
You are making tomorrow miserable! You guys are responsible for our anger tomorrow and for the next few weeks :). This trip has been one we have dreamed about for many years. The two of you are responsible for making it happen. This trip, the timing with COVID, was perfect. We needed this trip. I cannot thank you enough for the smiles you put on our faces. These memories will last a lifetime.
Thank you guys so much for making this trip one of my favorite trips ever! I don't know how I will be able to come back and stay anywhere else. From having Salt Pond all to ourselves to me attempting to wakeboard around Magen's Bay. (I can't wait to see the fail/falling reel!) Thank you for the countless memories I have made! I can't wait to come back :)
I can't thank you enough for such an incredible week in St John! Wakeboarding at Magen's Bay, snorkeling at Salt Pond & tacos at Lime Out are memories I'll never forget! I hope to see you next year!
"Keith Thankyou so much for all the stories and activities you did with me and I will never forget this trip. Thankyou so much for teaching me how to wakeboard and trying to throw me off the tube.
Ashley, thankyou for all of the slushies that you made me and thankyou for all of the great food. P.S. do not forget the adventure strap and we will send you some Levitate!" - Anthony Rabeni
"Keith, thank you for teaching me how to hoist the sail and showing me how to drive this boat." - Dominic Rabeni
Such A Blessing!
It has been such a blessing this week. the beaches, water, Keith and Jessa have been amazing. This was a last minute trip because of COVID-19 but glad we made the decision! We are a family of six, the itinerary has been flexible and perfect. We have been to beautiful beaches and sailed the oceans. Even with the Sahara that has been blowing over it has been beautiful and not so hot. Hopefully, we will sail again.
P.S. the meals were wonderful to take the week off cooking and cleaning
Will not be forgetting this trip soon!!!
We truly had the most amazing vacation with you guys. Several vacations fell through due to Covid prior to us arriving on this catamaran and I'm so glad they did. Everything was perfect. This is a trip we will not be forgetting soon! We probably gained 20lbs a piece due to the amazing food, but well worth it. Thanks Keith for finding the best snorkeling spots. Our two girls will forever be snorkelers due to your trip. Hope to sail with you two in the future!
Life Burns Bright!
"Corona" Adventures with Keith and Ellie
This has been an incredible week with both schedule and agendas thrown out the window. While the world around us has changed, this boat has become an intimate family of eight, filled with laughter, new stories, and memories to last a lifetime.
Ellie and Keith are truly some of the most genuine and kind souls, life burns bright for these two, and it has been such a joy to spend time learning from them both. We have beyond enjoyed our time on "Makin' Memories" and wouldn't want to be anywhere else for this adventure and chapter in life.
Hold onto your fork, the best is yet to come for the story of Ellie and Keith. Continue living life, and always shine bright. From the bottom of our hearts - thank you! You both will forever hold a place in our hearts. Our homes are open if you ever find yourself looking for new adventures.
'Makin' Memories' That Will Last A Lifetime!
Captain Keith and Ellie - We have been on many wonderful vacations but this trip was a trip of a lifetime... and it was because of the two of you. Your professionalism, attention to detail, calm demeanor, outstanding cooking and willingness to go the extra mile in every way far surpassed our expectations. Quite simply... you guys are amazing! Thank you both for "Makin Memories" that will last a lifetime. We all felt like you were always there when we needed you, and you made this feel like our "home"... and even more amazing is that you felt like part of our family, not just the "crew"! So thank you thank you thank you for sharing your home with us! With love and friendship,
Keith and Ellie - As returning guests to the BVI's (April 4th time, Greg 3rd time) we have experienced so much that the Virgin Islands have to offer. Even still, you have both been able to create a unique and most enjoyable vacation for us all! You are both very talented young sailors. We will forever remember our time with you both on Makin' Memories! .
What can we say - you certainly set the bar high for our first ever BVI trip! Simply amazing. Thank you both for such a fantastic week. Every stop and experience made for some great "memories" for sure. El Capitan Keith and El Salty Chef rock!!!
Great captain, wonderful food, perfect weather = BEST vacation :) Thanks for putting up with this crazy crew! You guys did a wonderful job with everything, especially putting up with our jokes and stupid questions! Thanks for the surprise lobster, ordering up those turtles and keeping the waves (semi) smooth. We will miss you both!
Top of the Podium
You are at the top of the podium in our "book"! You provided us with a dream vacation in paradise. Your sailing expertise, flexibility, calm demeanor and going the extra "mile" to accommodate our every desire made for a perfect week. Every meal far exceeded any 5-star restaurant's cuisine. We felt so cared for and secure knowing we were in such competent hands. You two are the best! You both do you jobs with such excellence and are true professionals. Thank you for all you labors on our behalf to provide us a stellar week full of "Makin' Memories" which we will cherish forever.
Eating and Drinking Throughout The BVI!
Thank you for a wonderful week aboard Makin' Memories. We had an incredible time eating and drinking our way through the Virgin Islands. Our favorite highlights included Cow Wreck Beach, Will yT's, Soggy Dollar, Snorkeling with sea turtles, and just enjoying sailing through these beautful islands! The Mokes on Anegada were a blast, and by far and away the most spectacular night was at Coco Maya!! You both have the perfect personalities for this experience and made everything seem effortless.
Memories For the Rest Of Our Lives!
The boat was the perfect size for 3 couples & crew... and what a crew! So flexible & relaxed yet they showed us all of the US & BVI's - yet left us yearning to come back and explore more. Thanks for meeting our needs... Kayak; dive rendezvous; putting up sails or motoring to fit in more; always enough water, drinks, electricity and meals fit for royalty. As we age we learn, to live in the moment, cherish and store memories for we don't know how many tomorrows we have. Thank you for walking on our hearts and planting memories we can pull out for the rest of our lives!
Our Expectations Were Surpassed
We planned this trip a long time ago. We had a high level of expectations, and after a week with you, our expectations were met and surpassed. Keith as the captain you were professional, and we appreciated the flexibility of the itinerary. Your cooking was delicious and the boat was kept very clean. We appreciated both of your maturity and kindness. We really enjoyed being able to sail, and to participate and help with this. Chef we hope our requirements did not bother you! (no bacon, no red meat...)
We wish you wonderful adventures around the world, and your “desires” will come true.
You are both very beautiful young adults
All Jokes Aside, Thank You for an Incredible Week
Thank you for an unbelievable trip from Cooper's Island and Willie T's to catching fresh lobster, we had an amazing time. We are leaving with unforgettable memories we are so lucky to have. Some of which Cole and Carter probably don't remember :) We are lucky to have had the opportunity to go sailing with you, you crushed it all week with killer or "delicious" dishes as Cole would say. You accommodated our last second dietary changes because our Dad decided to have some fun with fire and we had to replace him with Kayle. The night at Willie T's is one we will never forget, just like Cole and Carter's dance moves. Even frat star Reed will miss you guys. All jokes aside, thank you for an incredible week and I'm sure we will be attempting to convince our Dad for a round 2 trip
You went to extra lengths to accommodate our needs!
Thank you for helping to make what was other wise a derailed vacation into one that has been filled with so many wonderful memories. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding of our circumstance and the extra lengths you went to to accommodate our needs - from all the dietary restrictions, to providing food to the hospital, special pick ups and drop offs etc. I'm sure we were not your most exciting charter (4 nights in the harbor... :) but we feel blessed to have rung in the New Year together with you. Keith - we loved our 2 day adventure and your efforts to get me to Lime Out! No words! The food was over the top! Thank you for keeping us nourished all week! We hope to see you again under different circumstances and truly cruise the BVI.
One of the Best Trips
My wife and I agree this was one of the best trips we've done and while we look forward to doing it again.
They were brilliant!
They were both brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They did everything they could do to make the trip a memorable one. Both of them were very approachable and happy in their work. They are very knowledgable with great people skills.
