Patric and Mary have been sailing together for nearly 10 years and in that time have delighted and charmed their guests in over 150 charters over 55 000 miles with a holiday of a life time.
Now aboard the paradise "Tranquility" they are continuing to do just that throughout the Caribbean.
Captain Patric GUYAZ / Swiss

A great sense of humor, coupled with a professional and open and relaxed manner will make you feel special, safe and at home the moment you, your family and friends step aboard Tranquility.
There is no request to big "except the one regarding the elephant" and no cocktail too bizarre that Patric cannot cater to.

We had a safe trip home, but I’m still rocking like I’m on the Tranquility. I’m hoping that goes away soon!
It’s hard to put into words how amazing that trip was, but I will try. Here are some thoughts:
First off, the crew was amazing. Patric is great; a wealth of knowledge and experience, great sense of humor, patient (especially with the teenaged boys) and kind. I enjoyed talking with him and thought he took a real interest in our group, which was a bit diverse. He was extremely attentive to everyone on the boat, always asking if we needed anything, and even serving coffee. I didn’t expect that level of service from the captain, but the best thing about Patric was just talking with him. GG who cooked for us while Mary was away was simply great. Her food was awesome so we definitely don’t feel like we missed anything. She was quiet, but very nice, and very patient with the kids. I didn’t get to know her all that well since she was mostly in the galley and I didn’t want to bother her. Cooking for our 12 and the crew was a huge task and she nailed it. Rica, the deckhand, was a real pleasure. Everyone loved her, the adults and kids. She was fun to dive with and was awesome keeping the little and big kids happy on the water. Very patient and helpful at all times! Since she was always around on deck, I seemed to talk with her the most. I could just tell through our conversations that she is just a really nice, amazing person, and I surely hope she enjoys her new job at the dive shop in a couple of weeks. Andrea was new to the boat and was just helping out during the week Mary was away. She was super friendly and I appreciated what she did for our group. I got the sense she was still finding her way a bit, but that probably impacted the other crew more than us. We all liked her. A special shout out to the crew for putting up with little kids (8-9 yrs old), teenage boys, and my daughter’s boyfriend who I even find annoying! And, my brother-in-law and I could be just as childish as the kids sometimes too!
The boat was very nice. It was well-kept and clean. Sailing was a lot of fun and we enjoyed when Patric put up the sails and aloud us all to help with driving. I’m not sure we could ever do another boat after experiencing the Tranquility.
The weather was mostly awesome other than some clouds the first day and a bit rougher seas that day. However, it was mostly sunshine all week and very calm.
I thought Patric did a great job designing a route to allow for great diving, but also allow the non-divers get in the water and have fun. We also loved the bars we stopped at – Willy T, Saba Rock, Bitter End, Foxy’s Taboo, Foxy’s, Ivan’s, Soggy Dollar. We also went to the Baths. It feels like we went everywhere anyone would want to go, some places I haven’t even mentioned. I’m not sure what we could have missed.
I think the only negative I can think of was that there wasn’t access to real bait (live or even frozen) for fishing. When we do this again, I will be sure to let Patric know to get some bait. Fishing with artificial bait wasn’t that great. However, this is a really minor comment on an overall amazing experience.
o Seeing constant smiles on my youngest son’s face all week, as well as his two cousins of similar ages. It was a real joy seeing the 3 of them enjoy the water so much all week long.
o Spending quality time with my brother and sister in law all week that I don’t see that often. I would say the same for the time I spent with my college friend.
o Just sailing from anchorage to anchorage, enjoying the scenery, and mostly relaxing with my wife during those times. We also would find time alone in the morning with our coffee/tea before the rest of our group woke up. The mornings before breakfast when it was quiet was awesome.
o Multiple dives and snorkeling
o Foxy’s and Soggy Dollar
o Best painkiller goes either to Foxy’s Taboo or Andrea on the boat. All were good though and we tried them all! My brother-in-law tried to tell me Ivan’s was the best, but I couldn’t trust his judgement at that point in the day…
Everyone from my group loved the experience. The BVIs are more amazing than I really even thought. Sailing was even more fun than I thought. At the end of the day, the crew made the experience. I couldn’t imagine being stuck on a boat all week with a crew that had a different approach.
Thank you for helping arrange this amazing trip for us. We will definitely look to do this again in the future. If you find it appropriate, feel free to share this with Patric as well. Or, I can directly if you think I should.
Thanks so much!

"... I have to say hands down this was our absolute best charter ever. The boat was beautiful, Patric, Mary, Reka & Gi Gi were absolutely amazing everything was just fantastic we couldn’t have asked for a better trip really and truly."
And, "Our meals were amazing, it was like eating at a 5 star restaurant. Every single item from breakfast, snack, lunch and dinner was displayed beautifully.

We had a wonderful time. Patric, Mary, GG and Reka were phenomenal. The charter was a great success and everything went very smoothly. I only wish we would have used our whole time instead of coming down a day late.
Every part of the trip was great. The sites, the service, the food, the activities, the camaraderie, the ship. It was all perfect. Very much enjoyed the conversations that were had with each of the crew.
Everyone of our group enjoyed every part of the trip.
I very much hope to do this again and will contact you. I’ve been spending the past two days trying to think of when to do this again and with who (both tricky questions to answer).
The hardest part was leaving.

Tranquility is amazing. Has everything you would want on it and more. The bedroom layout with 2 rooms having twin beds helped us with our teenagers having a little more of their own space. The inside was beautiful, great for doing a movie night. We loved having every meal outside on the back of the boat, it was perfect. We loved all the areas of the boat that were there to relax and for amazing views while we sailed. The chairs on the very top were a favorite. The kids loved the hammock and the bean bag chairs that could be moved down to the trampolines or anywhere we wanted. The boat was absolutely perfect for our group of 11!
The itinerary could not have been more perfect. We have been to the BVI many times before, so we had a few things that we really wanted to do. Patric incorporated those requests and we got to do everything on our list and the places he picked for us were absolutely amazing. It is so nice to be on a boat with a captain and crew that has sailed the BVI so often and is confident about the best places to go!
Patric was outstanding! Everyday we discussed our plans and what we wanted to do, where we wanted to go, He helped cater this trip 100% to where and what we wanted to do. He spent endless time working with our certified divers to have the best experience, as well as getting our new divers into the water. And then finding a place for our non-divers to snorkel and have an amazing experience, too! He was so great with our group of 5 teenagers and keeping them busy on the tube and wakeboard.
Mary, our chef, was AMAZING! She had her work cut out for her with our group of 11 that ranged from people who would eat anything to the teenagers that were super picky. Everyday she worked with us to make sure everyone had something amazing to eat. The food was overall incredible, every single meal. Gigi was always on top of everything, constantly doing something to make our trip fantastic, especially the cocktails! She learned one of our group drinks a specific iced latte every morning and literally had it waiting for him everyday when he got up. Gabby did a great job of taking care of our teens on the tube, scuba diving with us, basically any recreation we wanted to do. This crew worked so hard to make sure our vacation was perfect, and it was!
The food and drink were incredible. Every meal, Mary went out of her way to make sure we were all completely satisfied, she really paid attention to our preference list. Every meal was outstanding! We thoroughly enjoyed the selection of wine at dinner, as well as the after dinner cocktails. Gigi kept us all happy with any happy hour drink we requested.
Trip of a lifetime! Tranquility is the best of the best when it comes to chartering a catamaran with a full crew. I've never seen a group work so hard to make sure our trip was perfect and everything we had hoped it would be!

Our trip was absolutely amazing and exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We rank it our top family trip, and we've taken quite a few of them.
First of all, THANK YOU for guiding us toward Tranquility and it's crew. I am not sure how you read us so accurately but Patric, Mary, Josh and Emily were a perfect match for our group. They absolutely took our experience to the next level with their knowledge, professionalism, willingness to accommodate our requests, and their overall attitude and demeanor. Their work ethic was totally impressive and they kept everything running smoothly all week. When they had a few down moments we had a great time hanging out with them, playing games and enjoying all the water sports. It could not have been a better match for us.
Mary is a gourmet chef (even though Patric said she's a "cook") The quality of the food, the preparation, the presentation - all superb, and comparable to anything offered at a top-rated restaurant. This was the case with every meal! We were blown away and each meal we said 'it can't get better,' but it did. We thought we'd dine on shore one or two nights but soon realized there would be no way to get even close to the quality of the cuisine on board.
Tranquility is a beautiful Catamaran and accommodated our group well. It's very comfortable, all systems were in top working order, the crew kept it pristine and sparkling, and we felt we were in a floating resort. The availability of water toys was fantastic and we loved parking in the beautiful coves on our route. We snorkeled, kayaked, SUPed, used the Subwing, tubed, and during our last stop we did the sling shot. So much fun! Patric took the divers on 3 great dives.
We have lots of photos. I have attached a few. If you need more comments or more photos let me know.
Thank you. It was an over the top, epic trip.

The trip was superb! Patric and the team killed themselves to entertain the kids with diving and the water sports. All of their personalities/attitudes/service was great. The food, Mary, was excellent. Dave and Fran were both dive instructors (and great young couple) so with Patric there was three on board. We would go in groups of 5 guests and 1 instructor. We did our last 2 open water with them and managed 4 other dives including Xmas morning at 8 am on the RMS Rhone. Not sure when we will do it again but I would go back to them.

CHARTER REVIEW OF TEAM AND VESSEL
Name: Gordon & Lynley - Date: November 23-30, 2015
In a nutshell our experience onTranquility was a 10 out of 10. Patricand crew did an amazing job. Our comments below are somewhat in our comparison to our experience on a Lagoon 44 with 2 crew. To have a family reunion on a yacht in the BVIs was a once in a lifetime experience beyond anything our family could have dreamed of.
Comment on the comfort onboard Tranquility:
First class rooms, amenities, etc. were all great. Lots of space with 12 of us plus 4 crew.
Comment on the condition of Tranquility:
We specifically chose Tranquility as it is relatively new. Everything was working and when there were eany mechanical issues, Patric was a capable mechanic taking everything instride.
Comment on the cleanliness of Tranquility:
Spotless! And we appreciated the crew letting us help swab the decks to feel useful.
Comment on the congeniality of the Captain and crew:
They should win the BVI Congeniality award! They all engaged with our family from the young twin girls to the grandparents.
Comment on the service ofthe Captain and crew:
Stellar from 5:59AM to whenever we called it a night. Amazing to be able to keep this up fromdaybreak to end of day over an extended period of time.
Comment on the fun aspect of the Captain and crew:
Lets see snorkeling, scuba, paddleboarding, hiking, hammock, sailing, motoring, wakeboarding, tubing, Willy Ting, finding the best spot in each and every harbor, 11.5knots in a reasonable wind, dealing with left behind passports, slingshot! Nightly summary
Comment on the expertise of the Captain and crew:
Extremely experienced and willing to share insights with everyone.
Comment on the quality of your meals:
Each meal was better than the last. Quality was perfect. Marys first US Thanksgiving spread was beyond all expectations -> research and execution was amazing.
Comment on the presentation of your meals:
So good that we had to take photos every time J
Would you charter this yacht again? (Circle one) YES
Can you please let the owners of Tranquility know that theyhave a special yacht and an amazing crew. Patric & Mary ran a tight ship and made this a special week for us. Will and Serena were on top of their game. For our family, while we were the customers felt like we were with friends on Tranquility. I think they could see how much our extended family enjoyed themselves
Having departed from Tortola airport vs. St Thomas, if we are to do this again, I would always depart from Tortola. Its a unique experience to land at an airport and pretty much head straight onto the boat. While it makes it a bit more difficult to fly from Miami, it makes the arrival/departure easier and less work with passports, etc. It was interesting to see some of St Thomas, but arriving in Tortola feels like it buys you one more day on the water.
Payne, Family Reunion, November 2015
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! We didnt think we could top our experience of 5 years ago. But boy did you guys do that and more. Thank you for making this such a memorable time for everyone involved both young and old. Patric you are the host with the most you are unbelievably accommodating, witty and so upbeat all the time. I dont know how you do it. Mary you are incredible!!! Magnificent meals that were healthy, tasty and beautiful presented. A very hard act to follow. Serena and Will thank you for your friendly service.. You are the sweetest.
