Captain Bijan Kalantari

A US Citizen and a New Yorker since the late 1950's, Bijan has been sailing most of his life.

Aboard his first boat ANITA KAY, a Sparkman & Steven's ketch, he explored much of the Eastern Seaboard, Nova Scotia, the Bahamas & Bermuda.

After retiring from his life on land Bijan began an annual migratory pattern offering charters in New York Harbor during the summer and the Virgin Islands in the winter.
When Bijan purchased ANAHITA his migrations changed to chartering in the Mediterranean during the summer and the Caribbean in the winter.

To date Bijan has sailed to the Med five times and his experiences have taken him as far east as the Greek Islands and Turkey.

Bijan's quiet nature and gentle manner belie his accomplished and fascinating background. Prior to chartering he enjoyed several very successful careers - the first was in classical ballet, performing with the Metropolitan and New York City Opera Ballets. Next he opened Lothar's - the French high fashion sportswear boutique on fifth avenue in New York, and North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills with his late wife. In 1975 he established his own real estate development company in New York and continued as a developer and builder until his early retirement.
Bijan is a genial charter host and expert sailor whose charter guests look forward to cruising with time and time again.



Chef / Mate Roseanne Morin

As chef and owner of the Cortina restaurant in North Bay Ontario, Roseanne was known for her original cuisine and unfailingly high standards. Welcoming culinary challenges, Roseanne jumped at the chance to work with the Canadian Olympic Team developing high-energy fitness-oriented meals for athletes in training.

Her first sailing experience opened her eyes to being a sea-going chef, a career which Roseanne embraced with gusto! Prior to joining ANAHITA in 2008 Roseanne worked for four years on charter and private yachts in the British and US Virgin Islands, St. Martin and the Grenadines.

Snorkeling and scuba diving top the list of Roseanne's favorite pastimes. In Ontario she volunteered in a soup kitchen for the homeless and still has a special interest in humanitarian holidays in Thailand's Changsian Babies Home.

Roseanne's menus encompass a variety of international cuisines and she cheerfully accommodates special requests, offers tasty adaptations for special diets and loves to create original hors d�oeuvres and desserts.

VIRGIN ISLANDS 2007
Dear Bijan and Judy: What a fabulous week! From gourmet meals to an array of fascinating activities with wonderful libations intertwined; it has been perfect. Thank you Bijan and Judy for creating our memorable family vacation. Much love, Chattanooga, Tennessee
VIRGIN ISLANDS 2007
Appolo and I have just spent the last week abord S/Y Anahita. We did some water skiing and snorkling. The sailboat performed very well under many different points of sailing. We did two of our favorite hikes, one on Peter Island, and the other on Virgin Gorda. The crew Captain Bijan, and cook Carmen were delightful and extremely pleasant. They worked very hard to satisfy our every whim. But when all was said and done we will miss them both. We truly hope that our paths will cross again. An extremely delightful week, with a fabulous picnic on the beach on Anegada, and return to Sandy Spite Island with it's idyllic palm tree. Wishing the both of you good winds, Truly yours, Taylor and Appolo
BVI: 2007
Couldn't have been a better week for us; many many thanks. Sailing, swimming, snorkeling, donut,(Blaster), for the kids, and a very relaxing atmosphere. Excellent food rounded it off perfectly. Roll on next year! Lucien Thank you very much for a fabulous week. A perfect way to turn 40. the whole family had a perfect holiday. I loved Anegada- the coral island- perfect white sand beech. We played shipwrecked pirates. A holiday in paradise. We will be back. thank you. Lucy We have had a great time on Anahita. I have really enjoyed all of the activities. I liked the food. I have improved my water skiing a lot. I loved snorkeling at the choral reefs. Amber Age 11 Thank you for a lovely holiday in the Caribbean. I have improved a lot on my water sports. I specially liked the water sports the most. Thomas Age 8 I specially liked water skiing, and donuting and snorkeling. Sebby age 7
GRENADA 2007
March 14, 2007: A honeymoon we will never forget! Perfect amount of adventure, relaxing, and some of the most amazing snorkeling and water we have seen. Sandy Island,(Carriacou), was a true paradise. Bijan, you were an amazing host/captain from beginning to end make a terrific rum punch. Barbara we enjoyed every meal you prepared, as we were totally spoiled for the whole four days. Thank you both. The wonderful honeymoon will always be in our memory. Mike and Kristy
MAINE AUG. 2007
Dear Bijan: Sorry to be so slow getting back to you. I am still dreaming of the trip. I think there could not be a better place to sail in August than Maine. Perfect cool weather, especially if one comes from a hot place, wonderful little harbors, both inhabited and not, pefect scenery and great water for sailing. We could have used a little more wind, but certainly had some good ones, and hey, you take what you get in that department. Anahita was a great boat to make the trip on -- lots of sun, protection from the rain and wind if you want it, and great comfort, yet a boat capable of handling anything. When friends ask where I was, they are all terribly envious. I'd go again in a minute! Best regards to you -- I hope the two week trip is as successful as ours was. Al Regnery Publisher The American Spectator ================================================================ 7 September 2007 To: Bijan Judy and Fran, I enjoyed enormously a 2 weeks' cruise with you all. Going to Roque Island was a unique experience, a highlight amongst others. Friendship forged while sailing is like discovering the truth that friendship may endure. May your future have fair winds and calm seas. Sincerely, Elihu YOrk MD ==================================================================== Dear Bijan, I enjoyed cruising along the Maine coast with you aboard S/Y Anahita. The boat is well balanced and sails well on all points. Going well to windward particularly is the test of a sailing vessel. May you have fair winds and gentle seas. El York, (Elihu YOrk MD) Captain, US Naval Reserve, retired, (1963-1988)
FRENCH RIVIERA 2008
Thank you very much for a great time. This has definitely been the highlight of our vacation. We have created so many memories these past week. It was great we were able to share one of the most important moments of our lives- our engagement- with you. Thanks again, and maybe one day we will meet again. Jan & Josh
GRENADINES 2009
Dear Bijan & Roseanne: We had a blast on our second charter with you! Thank you for all the special places you showed us: Like Tobago Cay's, Palm Island, Sandy Island, in Carriacou, and Saline Bay, (Amazing sunset). We loved being on the open seas on Anahita. What a fortunate opportunity to have been able to sail with you on this lovely trip. We loved the Grenadines more than the BVI's in that the weather was so much warmer, the water bluer, and the islands much greener. Leslie, Rick, Michael and I are grateful to know you. Love, Kathleen, NYC
VIRGIN ISLANDS March 2010
Bijan and Roseanne: We have greatly enjoyed a memorable week of sailing and good companionship: so much better than either a cruise line or a resort! Great sailing with superior seamanship, and great cuisine at the table with gourmet surprises everyday. We look forward to sailing with you both at a future date to explore new places and renew our new friendship. With warmest personal regards, Ted and Kirstin
ATLANTIC CROSSING May 2010
It is fair to say that- Having only sailed in the Mediterranean, and never in "Proper" oceans- I was somewhat worried regards crossing the Atlantic, my journey into the un known! I needn't have worried: From the moment I stepped aboard I felt at ease and very much enjoyed the crossing. So many things for making it so easy: Well hosted!! Best wishes to you both for much happiness together, kind seas and fair winds., If you ever find your way to York make sure you look me up. Bruce, York, England
AMALFI COAST ITALY NYYC Cruise 2010

Many thanks, Betsy DeBlois Yale We thoroughly enjoyed out cruising time with you. Your boat is lovely. We had a wonderful vacation. Fair winds. Your friend, Robbie Benjamin
THE GRENADINES 2011
This has been a sailing vacation for the record books. We have never had as much fun as we did with the two of you. Rail down, big waves. The food was perfect, the menu fresh and copious, and the company outstanding. We will be back. Thank you John and Cheryl
ST. KITTS 2011
Dear Bijan and Roseanne: Our fourth trip in four years. We have sailed the West Indies with you from Petite St. Vincent to St. Martin, ( And of course a lovely sejour along the coast of Maine). This trip from St. Martin to St. Barth, Statius, Saba, St. Kitts and Nevis was magnified from the truly remarkable gourmet kitchen commanded by Roseanne to the superb sailing under Bijan�s guiding eye. No detail was too small, no kindness overlooked. Your hospitality is without peer. We all have had a wonderful rested week. Warmest best wishes, Stef and Lezlee - Al and Audrey
ATLANTIC CROSSING May 2012

ITALY TO TURKEY 2012
Thank you so much for taking us on this adventure of a lifetime! We are so grateful that you took us on to your ANAHITA home, and made us feel so welcome. We will always remember the art of the way SPOTS you found for us to play in, the relaxing evenings having dinner on board and the many trips back and forth to shore at odd hours on the tender. This is probably our last family trip together now that (our daughter) is moving on, and we couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. It is the end of an era for us but also a new beginning. Thank you again for making it so special! Love, your friends, Lucy and Chuck
BVI 2012
Thank you for a wonderful trip. the food was excellent, the sailing inspiring, and the care and attention Bijan and Roseanne showed to me and my family was heart-warming. Look forward to our next trip!! Ian Hague- Matilda and Babeth
BVI 2012
January 5, 2013 BVI Thank you for a fantastic trip! You were the perfect host and our vacation couldn�t have been better. We had good weather, nice winds and fun activities every day. We have fun stories from the entire trip. The food was some of the best that we have had. We were amazed every night by what came up from the galley. Thank you for yoiur attention to every detail. We will remember you both and hope to see you soon! Bob, Sharon, Katie & Emily
Easter 2013: BVI
Easter 2013- March 31st St. Thomas Bijan & Roseanne We want to thank you for another wonderful week of sailing, dining and enjoyment in the USVI and BVI. Your ability to make, "Your boat", into, "Our boat" makes sailing with you a completely enjoyable and memorable experience. No one does it better! And of course the food was gourmet level as we sailed-how-do-you-do it? You are both wonderful people that we very much appreciate having the opportunity to know and to sail (with). We wish you a safe crossing next month and look forward to sailing again. Warm regards, Ted & Kristen Bijan: Thanks to you and Rosanne for another great week of sailing and good adventure. You both have just the right touch for making guests feel welcome aboard, and for allowing them to enjoy the wonderful space of Anahita. Roseanne's meals were again worthy of a fine restaurant in Manhattan, and your sailing skills were on good display during the brief squall through which we sailed on our way to West End. Best regards, Ted
AMALFI COAST Italy 2013
June 12-19, 2013 Dear Bijan and Roseanne; This has been a trip of a lifetime. Your generosity has made us feel at home. We are so grateful that you have welcomed us into your home.

I can't imagine the work that goes into hosting us. we have felt completely spoiled. Safe Sailing, Jodi, Steve; Shara & Tim
CROATIA/Montenegro 2013
Dear Bijan and Roseanne, Thank you for a wonderful trip on Anahita. We enjoyed your company and the great food. We enjoyed visiting the old town of Dubrovnik and the magnificent Lopud Island. Our over night stay in the Village of Cavtat, was memorable and finally we were pleasantly surprised by the majestic mountains of Montenegro, not to mention the historic walled city of Kotor. Warm regards and safe seas, The Hubbard Family.
MONTENEGRO,CROATIA 2013
Dear Bijan and Roseanne: Thank you both so much for an incredible honey moon! It was fun, relaxing and romantic. Bijan your choice of islands was perfect for us- We specially liked Lopud and Sipan. Roseanne. we couldn't have asked for better food, and will definitely be contacting you for some recipes! In planning our future vacations, we will definitely keep Anahita in mind. Or perhaps one day we will sail with you in our own boat, since both of us have been inspired to take up sailing. All the best in your travels! Olivia and Brian
BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS 2014
February 2014 We thoroughly enjoyed the charter. The crew was fabulous � helpful, friendly, accommodating and particularly kind to our 8 year old granddaughter. The yacht was spotless, comfortable and well maintained. The meals were excellent � (both in) quality and presentation. We would absolutely charter this yacht again . . . really can�t think of anything we would change about this trip. Bijan and Roseanne were excellent companions and worked very hard to provide us with the best possible experience.
ATLANTIC CROSSING June 2014
When I first planned my sabbatical I had vague thoughts of a sailing adventure and challenge beyond what I could do in home waters. through luck and providence I had the pleasure of living with you two for a month and half sailing, (Or motoring), more that 5000 miles and seeing a slice of the world. I am grateful beyond words for your hospitality, companionship, and graciousness. I look forward to sailing with you again, Bijan & Roseanne, and wish you more marvelous adventures!! Love, Jeannette A.K.A. The Very Reverant Dr. DeFriest

CROATIA 2015
Thank you very much both Bijan and Roseanne for a wonderful week on Anahita. In spite of the fact that the wind was not much in our favor, she was a lovely boat to sail and we enjoyed exploring the different islands, and particularly our favorite spot on Miljet. Lots of brilliant snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing and climbing, (and cliff jumping for the boys). We were looked after brilliantly by you both. So we had a lovely relaxing time. Roseanne particularly, thank you for endless delicious meals, and all your staying over a hot stove while we were having fun. A brilliant, memorable , and relaxing week! With many thanks from the Collins family.
FRANCE MONTECARLO TO TULON 2016
Dear Bijan : Our sea is not as blue as the MED and the water is usually cold, but we have impressive chalk cliffs to make the scenery very beautiful. I am savouring the memories of my first sailing experience, and thank you again for your choice of beautiful spots in which to anchor, and planning that spectacular regotta of classic yachts in Antibes. I hope this note arrives before you leave St. Tropez and send my best wishes for a wonderful summer. Love Lee
MONTENEGRO TO CROATIA July 2016

Jimmy, Susan, Andrew, Jamie, and Matthew

We would love to sail on Anahita again. Best wishes, Kathy, Phil, and Duke Riley
St. Vincent to Grenada, Jan. 2019
Dear Bijan and Roseanne I just had a lovely call with Peter who said that they had a great trip and described the two of you as “delightful and great company. It could not have been better from the service side of things.” They felt that they discovered wonderful new friends. They loved Anahita - how powerful and strong it was and said that they could not have been in better hands. I think that they were very impressed by your sailing ability and marveled at how you did it the old-fashioned way without a Raymarine at the helm. (LOL) They loved the meals and the itinerary. They especially liked the anchorage on Carriacou., President Thanks for showing them a great time. It must have been fun to have some true sailors on board. Fair winds, Trish Cronan
The Grenadines February 2019
Wow, what a delightful, exciting and memorable journey. Thank you so much for your constant care and attention, Roseanne, what a special person you are. We'll certainly have this memory forever! Sally and John Barker Roseanne and Bijan- Thank you so much for our re-visit to the Grenadines. We had a wonderful week on the beautiful Anahita. WE look forward to your visiting us sometime in North Carolina. We know it was hard taking care of this geriatric crowd and appreciate all you had to do for us. John and Berry Greene.
We had a wonderful time on ANAHITA- BVI's TO ANEGADA
Bijan and Roseanne were an excellent crew and hosts for our family. Delicious meals from morning till night. Roseanne is an excellent chef and with her delightful meals will teach your kids to eat what is put on the table within two meals ! Fun adventures, good snorkeling, and a captain with so many skills; I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Bijan on top of the boom- Now those ballet days really stuck with him. Thank you so much, we had fun, learned, got along great, and ate well! We wish you both the best of luck in your next adventures. Last and far from least that you for jumping in and sailing from Trinidad to save our holiday. The Weavers- Norfolk, VA
Block Island, RI Aug. 2020
Dear Bijan and Roseanne: Thank you so much for the most fabulous and exciting vacation. Bijan your sailing style and expertise set us at ease. We are glad the tropical storm fizzled, but we felt secure in your capable hands throughout. Thanks as well for all the care you showed the kids, with the blaster, paddleboard, and kayak. They had tremendous fun. Roseanne, we shall never forget your delicious meals and graciousness. We are particularly appreciative of the attention to ensure the kids' various culinary references. We are more than aware of the challenges they bring! Can't think of a better vacation to help ride the pandemic. Thank you again for everything. Hope our paths cross again. Best of luck to both. The Marcus family: Jeremy, Mia, Nathan, Eva, and Lily

Captain Bijan Kalantari

A US Citizen and a New Yorker since the late 1950's, Bijan has been sailing most of his life.

Aboard his first boat ANITA KAY, a Sparkman & Steven's ketch, he explored much of the Eastern Seaboard, Nova Scotia, the Bahamas & Bermuda.

After retiring from his life on land Bijan began an annual migratory pattern offering charters in New York Harbor during the summer and the Virgin Islands in the winter.
When Bijan purchased ANAHITA his migrations changed to chartering in the Mediterranean during the summer and the Caribbean in the winter.

To date Bijan has sailed to the Med five times and his experiences have taken him as far east as the Greek Islands and Turkey.

Bijan's quiet nature and gentle manner belie his accomplished and fascinating background. Prior to chartering he enjoyed several very successful careers - the first was in classical ballet, performing with the Metropolitan and New York City Opera Ballets. Next he opened Lothar's - the French high fashion sportswear boutique on fifth avenue in New York, and North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills with his late wife. In 1975 he established his own real estate development company in New York and continued as a developer and builder until his early retirement.
Bijan is a genial charter host and expert sailor whose charter guests look forward to cruising with time and time again.



Chef / Mate Roseanne Morin

As chef and owner of the Cortina restaurant in North Bay Ontario, Roseanne was known for her original cuisine and unfailingly high standards. Welcoming culinary challenges, Roseanne jumped at the chance to work with the Canadian Olympic Team developing high-energy fitness-oriented meals for athletes in training.

Her first sailing experience opened her eyes to being a sea-going chef, a career which Roseanne embraced with gusto! Prior to joining ANAHITA in 2008 Roseanne worked for four years on charter and private yachts in the British and US Virgin Islands, St. Martin and the Grenadines.

Snorkeling and scuba diving top the list of Roseanne's favorite pastimes. In Ontario she volunteered in a soup kitchen for the homeless and still has a special interest in humanitarian holidays in Thailand's Changsian Babies Home.

Roseanne's menus encompass a variety of international cuisines and she cheerfully accommodates special requests, offers tasty adaptations for special diets and loves to create original hors d�oeuvres and desserts.

VIRGIN ISLANDS 2007
Dear Bijan and Judy: What a fabulous week! From gourmet meals to an array of fascinating activities with wonderful libations intertwined; it has been perfect. Thank you Bijan and Judy for creating our memorable family vacation. Much love, Chattanooga, Tennessee
VIRGIN ISLANDS 2007
Appolo and I have just spent the last week abord S/Y Anahita. We did some water skiing and snorkling. The sailboat performed very well under many different points of sailing. We did two of our favorite hikes, one on Peter Island, and the other on Virgin Gorda. The crew Captain Bijan, and cook Carmen were delightful and extremely pleasant. They worked very hard to satisfy our every whim. But when all was said and done we will miss them both. We truly hope that our paths will cross again. An extremely delightful week, with a fabulous picnic on the beach on Anegada, and return to Sandy Spite Island with it's idyllic palm tree. Wishing the both of you good winds, Truly yours, Taylor and Appolo
BVI: 2007
Couldn't have been a better week for us; many many thanks. Sailing, swimming, snorkeling, donut,(Blaster), for the kids, and a very relaxing atmosphere. Excellent food rounded it off perfectly. Roll on next year! Lucien Thank you very much for a fabulous week. A perfect way to turn 40. the whole family had a perfect holiday. I loved Anegada- the coral island- perfect white sand beech. We played shipwrecked pirates. A holiday in paradise. We will be back. thank you. Lucy We have had a great time on Anahita. I have really enjoyed all of the activities. I liked the food. I have improved my water skiing a lot. I loved snorkeling at the choral reefs. Amber Age 11 Thank you for a lovely holiday in the Caribbean. I have improved a lot on my water sports. I specially liked the water sports the most. Thomas Age 8 I specially liked water skiing, and donuting and snorkeling. Sebby age 7
GRENADA 2007
March 14, 2007: A honeymoon we will never forget! Perfect amount of adventure, relaxing, and some of the most amazing snorkeling and water we have seen. Sandy Island,(Carriacou), was a true paradise. Bijan, you were an amazing host/captain from beginning to end make a terrific rum punch. Barbara we enjoyed every meal you prepared, as we were totally spoiled for the whole four days. Thank you both. The wonderful honeymoon will always be in our memory. Mike and Kristy
MAINE AUG. 2007
Dear Bijan: Sorry to be so slow getting back to you. I am still dreaming of the trip. I think there could not be a better place to sail in August than Maine. Perfect cool weather, especially if one comes from a hot place, wonderful little harbors, both inhabited and not, pefect scenery and great water for sailing. We could have used a little more wind, but certainly had some good ones, and hey, you take what you get in that department. Anahita was a great boat to make the trip on -- lots of sun, protection from the rain and wind if you want it, and great comfort, yet a boat capable of handling anything. When friends ask where I was, they are all terribly envious. I'd go again in a minute! Best regards to you -- I hope the two week trip is as successful as ours was. Al Regnery Publisher The American Spectator ================================================================ 7 September 2007 To: Bijan Judy and Fran, I enjoyed enormously a 2 weeks' cruise with you all. Going to Roque Island was a unique experience, a highlight amongst others. Friendship forged while sailing is like discovering the truth that friendship may endure. May your future have fair winds and calm seas. Sincerely, Elihu YOrk MD ==================================================================== Dear Bijan, I enjoyed cruising along the Maine coast with you aboard S/Y Anahita. The boat is well balanced and sails well on all points. Going well to windward particularly is the test of a sailing vessel. May you have fair winds and gentle seas. El York, (Elihu YOrk MD) Captain, US Naval Reserve, retired, (1963-1988)
FRENCH RIVIERA 2008
Thank you very much for a great time. This has definitely been the highlight of our vacation. We have created so many memories these past week. It was great we were able to share one of the most important moments of our lives- our engagement- with you. Thanks again, and maybe one day we will meet again. Jan & Josh
GRENADINES 2009
Dear Bijan & Roseanne: We had a blast on our second charter with you! Thank you for all the special places you showed us: Like Tobago Cay's, Palm Island, Sandy Island, in Carriacou, and Saline Bay, (Amazing sunset). We loved being on the open seas on Anahita. What a fortunate opportunity to have been able to sail with you on this lovely trip. We loved the Grenadines more than the BVI's in that the weather was so much warmer, the water bluer, and the islands much greener. Leslie, Rick, Michael and I are grateful to know you. Love, Kathleen, NYC
VIRGIN ISLANDS March 2010
Bijan and Roseanne: We have greatly enjoyed a memorable week of sailing and good companionship: so much better than either a cruise line or a resort! Great sailing with superior seamanship, and great cuisine at the table with gourmet surprises everyday. We look forward to sailing with you both at a future date to explore new places and renew our new friendship. With warmest personal regards, Ted and Kirstin
ATLANTIC CROSSING May 2010
It is fair to say that- Having only sailed in the Mediterranean, and never in "Proper" oceans- I was somewhat worried regards crossing the Atlantic, my journey into the un known! I needn't have worried: From the moment I stepped aboard I felt at ease and very much enjoyed the crossing. So many things for making it so easy: Well hosted!! Best wishes to you both for much happiness together, kind seas and fair winds., If you ever find your way to York make sure you look me up. Bruce, York, England

THE GRENADINES 2011

ST. KITTS 2011
Dear Bijan and Roseanne: Our fourth trip in four years. We have sailed the West Indies with you from Petite St. Vincent to St. Martin, ( And of course a lovely sejour along the coast of Maine). This trip from St. Martin to St. Barth, Statius, Saba, St. Kitts and Nevis was magnified from the truly remarkable gourmet kitchen commanded by Roseanne to the superb sailing under Bijan�s guiding eye. No detail was too small, no kindness overlooked. Your hospitality is without peer. We all have had a wonderful rested week. Warmest best wishes, Stef and Lezlee - Al and Audrey

ITALY TO TURKEY 2012
Thank you so much for taking us on this adventure of a lifetime! We are so grateful that you took us on to your ANAHITA home, and made us feel so welcome. We will always remember the art of the way SPOTS you found for us to play in, the relaxing evenings having dinner on board and the many trips back and forth to shore at odd hours on the tender. This is probably our last family trip together now that (our daughter) is moving on, and we couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. It is the end of an era for us but also a new beginning. Thank you again for making it so special! Love, your friends, Lucy and Chuck
BVI 2012

BVI 2012
January 5, 2013 BVI Thank you for a fantastic trip! You were the perfect host and our vacation couldn�t have been better. We had good weather, nice winds and fun activities every day.

We will remember you both and hope to see you soon! Bob, Sharon, Katie & Emily
Easter 2013: BVI
Easter 2013- March 31st St. Thomas Bijan & Roseanne We want to thank you for another wonderful week of sailing, dining and enjoyment in the USVI and BVI. Your ability to make, "Your boat", into, "Our boat" makes sailing with you a completely enjoyable and memorable experience. No one does it better! And of course the food was gourmet level as we sailed-how-do-you-do it? You are both wonderful people that we very much appreciate having the opportunity to know and to sail (with). We wish you a safe crossing next month and look forward to sailing again. Warm regards, Ted & Kristen Bijan: Thanks to you and Rosanne for another great week of sailing and good adventure. You both have just the right touch for making guests feel welcome aboard, and for allowing them to enjoy the wonderful space of Anahita. Roseanne's meals were again worthy of a fine restaurant in Manhattan, and your sailing skills were on good display during the brief squall through which we sailed on our way to West End. Best regards, Ted
AMALFI COAST Italy 2013
June 12-19, 2013 Dear Bijan and Roseanne; This has been a trip of a lifetime. Your generosity has made us feel at home. We are so grateful that you have welcomed us into your home.

CROATIA/Montenegro 2013
Dear Bijan and Roseanne, Thank you for a wonderful trip on Anahita. We enjoyed your company and the great food. We enjoyed visiting the old town of Dubrovnik and the magnificent Lopud Island.

Warm regards and safe seas, The Hubbard Family.

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS 2014
February 2014 We thoroughly enjoyed the charter. The crew was fabulous � helpful, friendly, accommodating and particularly kind to our 8 year old granddaughter. The yacht was spotless, comfortable and well maintained. The meals were excellent � (both in) quality and presentation. We would absolutely charter this yacht again . . . really can�t think of anything we would change about this trip. Bijan and Roseanne were excellent companions and worked very hard to provide us with the best possible experience.
ATLANTIC CROSSING June 2014
When I first planned my sabbatical I had vague thoughts of a sailing adventure and challenge beyond what I could do in home waters. through luck and providence I had the pleasure of living with you two for a month and half sailing, (Or motoring), more that 5000 miles and seeing a slice of the world. I am grateful beyond words for your hospitality, companionship, and graciousness. I look forward to sailing with you again, Bijan & Roseanne, and wish you more marvelous adventures!! Love, Jeannette A.K.A. The Very Reverant Dr. DeFriest

CROATIA 2015
Thank you very much both Bijan and Roseanne for a wonderful week on Anahita. In spite of the fact that the wind was not much in our favor, she was a lovely boat to sail and we enjoyed exploring the different islands, and particularly our favorite spot on Miljet. Lots of brilliant snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing and climbing, (and cliff jumping for the boys). We were looked after brilliantly by you both. So we had a lovely relaxing time. Roseanne particularly, thank you for endless delicious meals, and all your staying over a hot stove while we were having fun. A brilliant, memorable , and relaxing week! With many thanks from the Collins family.
FRANCE MONTECARLO TO TULON 2016
Dear Bijan : Our sea is not as blue as the MED and the water is usually cold, but we have impressive chalk cliffs to make the scenery very beautiful. I am savouring the memories of my first sailing experience, and thank you again for your choice of beautiful spots in which to anchor, and planning that spectacular regotta of classic yachts in Antibes. I hope this note arrives before you leave St. Tropez and send my best wishes for a wonderful summer. Love Lee

Jimmy, Susan, Andrew, Jamie, and Matthew

St. Vincent to Grenada, Jan. 2019
Dear Bijan and Roseanne I just had a lovely call with Peter who said that they had a great trip and described the two of you as “delightful and great company. It could not have been better from the service side of things.” They felt that they discovered wonderful new friends. They loved Anahita - how powerful and strong it was and said that they could not have been in better hands. I think that they were very impressed by your sailing ability and marveled at how you did it the old-fashioned way without a Raymarine at the helm. (LOL) They loved the meals and the itinerary. They especially liked the anchorage on Carriacou., President Thanks for showing them a great time. It must have been fun to have some true sailors on board. Fair winds, Trish Cronan
The Grenadines February 2019
Wow, what a delightful, exciting and memorable journey. Thank you so much for your constant care and attention, Roseanne, what a special person you are. We'll certainly have this memory forever! Sally and John Barker Roseanne and Bijan- Thank you so much for our re-visit to the Grenadines. We had a wonderful week on the beautiful Anahita. WE look forward to your visiting us sometime in North Carolina. We know it was hard taking care of this geriatric crowd and appreciate all you had to do for us. John and Berry Greene.
We had a wonderful time on ANAHITA- BVI's TO ANEGADA
Bijan and Roseanne were an excellent crew and hosts for our family. Delicious meals from morning till night. Roseanne is an excellent chef and with her delightful meals will teach your kids to eat what is put on the table within two meals ! Fun adventures, good snorkeling, and a captain with so many skills; I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Bijan on top of the boom- Now those ballet days really stuck with him. Thank you so much, we had fun, learned, got along great, and ate well! We wish you both the best of luck in your next adventures. Last and far from least that you for jumping in and sailing from Trinidad to save our holiday. The Weavers- Norfolk, VA
Block Island, RI Aug. 2020
Dear Bijan and Roseanne: Thank you so much for the most fabulous and exciting vacation. Bijan your sailing style and expertise set us at ease. We are glad the tropical storm fizzled, but we felt secure in your capable hands throughout. Thanks as well for all the care you showed the kids, with the blaster, paddleboard, and kayak. They had tremendous fun. Roseanne, we shall never forget your delicious meals and graciousness. We are particularly appreciative of the attention to ensure the kids' various culinary references. We are more than aware of the challenges they bring! Can't think of a better vacation to help ride the pandemic. Thank you again for everything. Hope our paths cross again. Best of luck to both.
