Captain
Jacob Beman
Nation: USA
Born: 1989
License: RYA/MCA Yachtmaster
Languages: English
Chef/Hostess
Danielle Andrews
Nation: USA
License: STCW
Originally from Chicago, Jacob moved to the west coast in 2010 where he discovered his love for sailing. A single day trip in San Diego had him hooked and pretty soon he was chartering and eventually purchasing his first sailboat in 2014. In 2017 after spending several years sailing the coast of California and Mexico he quit his job as a hospitality manager and decided to pursue a full time career on the water.

Over the last two years Jacob has spent the summer season in the Med working charters for everyone from honeymoon couples to giant flotillas of nearly 200 yachts! During the winter season of 2018 he moved to Australia to sail charters in New South Wales for the summer down under. When it warmed up in the north he returned to sail California and Mexico once again along with the Abaco's islands in the Bahamas. Since making the Virgin Islands his home he has explored the hidden gems and tourist hot spots to provide the trip of a lifetime for any guest.

Always pursuing additional knowledge, Jacob has spent his time gaining experience on vessels ranging from 25 ft race boats to 85 ft luxury cruisers. Whether it's a mono hull or catamaran; big or small; as long as it's sailing the ocean blue it's the right boat.


Born and raised in Florida, Dani grew up with a tremendous love for the ocean and the outdoors, which continue to bring her joy and a sense of comfort. From an early age, curiosity and excitement were instilled as her father began teaching her the way around the kitchen. Her later career in hospitality industry throughout her college years helped mold her understanding of the ins and outs of the restaurant world.

After obtaining her Associate in Arts from Valencia College she embarked on her first adventure to Hawaii while working on cruise ships. This was where she got her first taste and joy for life on the water. Living and working on the beautiful islands only deepened her passion for people and cooking abroad. Traveling and experiencing new cultures is a life-changing experience she dreams of offering to others.

The following year, she decided to trade the big ship life for a more fulfilling pursuit, where she could connect on a deeper level with her guests and let her true passion for the culinary arts come to life, playing with her creativity in food menus and toying with new delicious experiments. After her first trip as a chef aboard a sailing yacht in Portugal she knew she’d found this opportunity, and for the last 3 years she has been working on sailing yachts in Portugal, Croatia, and the Virgin Islands; this has allowed her to travel to over 20 different countries increasing her knowledge of alternative cuisines and her love of sailing.

We truly enjoyed having Jacob Beman as our Skipper/Captain in BVI. Jacob was a true professional and handled the Catamaran with skill above and beyond what I would have expected from someone so young. Jacob was always up early starting coffee and performing his skipper duties and he even helped our chef with some of the meals & her responsibilities. He was well versed in first aid, as one day I had a small cut on my ankle and he cleaned and bandaged it for me. We were quite impressed during our trip because he always sailed using the sails vs. using the motor, which may have been because of the great weather we had, but regardless, we enjoyed his sailing abilities thoroughly. Jacob was happy to answer questions and teach those that wanted to learn about sailing. I was impressed by his professionalism, knowledge of the islands and water. Jacob was always smiling and he knew just where to take us to snorkel and things to tell us to look out for. He was happy to take us to the islands in the dingy and when needed he got us to and from the taxi drivers without any issues making our lives that much easier. We enjoyed having Jacob around, he is quite an impressive skipper. Jacob is professional, smart, kind, witty and I highly recommend him without hesitation. I would not hesitate to hire him as a skipper again and hopefully I can one day again! :) -Cindy R

We had the absolute best vacation on the Alladora (previous boat) and I would attribute it all to the experience that these two provided. From the very moment we met them, we felt comfortable and felt accommodated for! They make a fantastic team working together and the vibe they had together made for a fun relaxing and amazing time. Jacob is a fantastic skipper. He was very knowledgeable and I was amazed at how hard he worked to get us the best spots at all of the locations he brought us too. Christina is a little spitfire and we all fell in love with her instantly. We would NEVER have believed we would be served such elegant food on the boat. Her meals were always over the top and the presentation and unique options were out of this world. Each morning we were greeted with tea and coffee, Bloody Mary's or Mimosas which was a nice treat. I honestly cannot say enough great things about these two! I will definitely be on a charter trip like this again and will not accept any other skipper or chef except for these two. They both catered to every individual person's needs the entire trip, cooking separate meals when some guests did not like certain ingredients, they played taxi on the dingy for anyone who ever needed to get to shore and never once seemed annoyed or inconvenienced. We love the BVI's and will be back for another amazing experience with Jacob and Christina.
March 2019
We were fortunate to book two day trips with Capt. Jacob Beman and Christina Astuto on the Pau Hana catamaran during the week of March 17, 2019. Our group consisted of three couples, several of whom had lifelong boating experience and a couple who frankly weren't sure they were ready to spend an hour, much less a day, on a sailboat. Jacob and Christina immediately took charge of the charter, making sure we were comfortable as well as oriented to the safety procedures aboard the boat. The main challenge our group presented was that half of us wanted to go somewhere to socialize, drink painkillers, and buy t-shirts to bring home, while the other half did not want to see, much less talk to, another tourist if at all possible. Jacob was able to "read the room" & plan a full, fun day that made everyone happy. They were also exceptionally tolerant of the music choices of their guests...even if it was early 90's Hair Bands! Jacob and Christina demonstrated an intuitive talent for customer service, anticipating our needs before we had a chance to ask. Their ability to make us feel taken care of and a bit spoiled while still treating us like long lost friends is an interpersonal skill that can't be taught. One of the more important and appreciated things I noticed was that both Jacob and Christina demonstrated their knowledge of and respect for the ecosystem around them in the way they operate the boat and the locations they chose to show us. It is clear that they both love this gorgeous corner of the world & want to conserve its beauty for future generations. I feel that any well balanced review should include some constructive criticism. I struggled to find something to critique about the service we received, but here it is. Jacob's fashion sense is atrocious. The patterns in his shirts and shorts clash to the point of distraction. Christina assured us she is working on the issue, so hopefully improvements will be made in that area. We enjoyed our time on St. John immensely, but the days we spent on the water were certainly the highlight of the week. After an amazing trip, I believe one's flight home should be spent planning the next vacation. It was the unanimous decision the group that our next getaway would be planned based solely on where Jacob and Christina are working. I just hope they’re prepared for that! Regards, Brooks & Roisin Boston, MA

My husband and I were lucky enough to get hooked up with Jacob Beman as our captain for our BVI Charter 3/23/19-3/31/19. We had 3 other couples with us from Atlanta and ended up having the time of our lives, a lot of that had to do with Jacob. Jacob's laid back personality and calmness made all of us at ease right away - don't get me wrong though, he was all business when it came to our safety and the boat - as that was his number one priority. He was so easy to talk to and would gladly include you if you wanted to learn to sail. It was nice to see Jacob helping out the chef as well. You would see him up early making coffee and even helping clean up after a meal. Other charters I have been on that has not been the case! Jacob knew when to go to certain islands before all the other boats showed up and always found us a great spot for the night. His stories and experiences kept us laughing for hours and his genuine love of sailing and the islands is contagious. I can't say enough about Jacob and sure hope that when we take our next charter I am able to find him again!! Suzie and Scott B
New Years 2019/2020
The seven nights we spent on Neverland were absolutely spectacular! Our tour of the British Virgin Islands featured great snorkeling and swimming, beautiful beaches, and interesting ports of call, but what made the vacation truly special was our crew, Jacob Beman and Christina Astuto. Jacob is a skillful sailor, Christina a magical cook, and both of them have a touch of MacGyver in their personalities. (Our first day out featured Christina being hoisted to the top of the mast for some impromptu problem solving!) Christina’s touch in the kitchen really took our breath away as she daily turned Neverland into a floating gourmet restaurant. Additionally, Christina and Jacob worked with us to curate a selection of Italian wines that were a constant delight. When we weren’t drinking wine, Jacob’s rum punch and Christina’s negronis and old fashioneds were memorable. And when we weren’t busy eating and drinking, Jacob had a knack for effortlessly managing our itinerary, changing plans when needed to fit the weather, our interests, and our moods. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, Christina and Jacob are a real pleasure to spend time with. Never less than professional, C & J are lively, interesting, fun and funny. We could not have wished for better company!
Praise from Charter Broker on three well done charters
I have now had 3 charters with Jacob and Christina absolutely nailed it each time. The planning, the food, their personalities. . . . everything! It was very different groups from a family to a 35 wedding anniversary and all the clients were full of praise. Charter Broker

We were fortunate to book two day trips with Capt. Jacob Beman and Christina Astuto on the Pau Hana catamaran during the week of March 17, 2019. Our group consisted of three couples, several of whom had lifelong boating experience and a couple who frankly weren't sure they were ready to spend an hour, much less a day, on a sailboat. Jacob and Christina immediately took charge of the charter, making sure we were comfortable as well as oriented to the safety procedures aboard the boat. The main challenge our group presented was that half of us wanted to go somewhere to socialize, drink painkillers, and buy t-shirts to bring home, while the other half did not want to see, much less talk to, another tourist if at all possible. Jacob was able to "read the room" & plan a full, fun day that made everyone happy. They were also exceptionally tolerant of the music choices of their guests...even if it was early 90's Hair Bands! Jacob and Christina demonstrated an intuitive talent for customer service, anticipating our needs before we had a chance to ask. Their ability to make us feel taken care of and a bit spoiled while still treating us like long lost friends is an interpersonal skill that can't be taught. One of the more important and appreciated things I noticed was that both Jacob and Christina demonstrated their knowledge of and respect for the ecosystem around them in the way they operate the boat and the locations they chose to show us. It is clear that they both love this gorgeous corner of the world & want to conserve its beauty for future generations. I feel that any well balanced review should include some constructive criticism. I struggled to find something to critique about the service we received, but here it is. Jacob's fashion sense is atrocious. The patterns in his shirts and shorts clash to the point of distraction. Christina assured us she is working on the issue, so hopefully improvements will be made in that area. We enjoyed our time on St. John immensely, but the days we spent on the water were certainly the highlight of the week. After an amazing trip, I believe one's flight home should be spent planning the next vacation. It was the unanimous decision the group that our next getaway would be planned based solely on where Jacob and Christina are working. I just hope they’re prepared for that!

March 2019
My husband and I were lucky enough to get hooked up with Jacob Beman as our captain for our BVI Charter 3/23/19-3/31/19. We had 3 other couples with us from Atlanta and ended up having the time of our lives, a lot of that had to do with Jacob. Jacob's laid back personality and calmness made all of us at ease right away - don't get me wrong though, he was all business when it came to our safety and the boat - as that was his number one priority. He was so easy to talk to and would gladly include you if you wanted to learn to sail. It was nice to see Jacob helping out the chef as well. You would see him up early making coffee and even helping clean up after a meal. Other charters I have been on that has not been the case! Jacob knew when to go to certain islands before all the other boats showed up and always found us a great spot for the night. His stories and experiences kept us laughing for hours and his genuine love of sailing and the islands is contagious. I can't say enough about Jacob and sure hope that when we take our next charter I am able to find him again!! Suzie and Scott B
New Years 2019/2020
The seven nights we spent on Neverland were absolutely spectacular! Our tour of the British Virgin Islands featured great snorkeling and swimming, beautiful beaches, and interesting ports of call, but what made the vacation truly special was our crew, Jacob Beman and Christina Astuto. Jacob is a skillful sailor, Christina a magical cook, and both of them have a touch of MacGyver in their personalities. (Our first day out featured Christina being hoisted to the top of the mast for some impromptu problem solving!) Christina’s touch in the kitchen really took our breath away as she daily turned Neverland into a floating gourmet restaurant. Additionally, Christina and Jacob worked with us to curate a selection of Italian wines that were a constant delight. When we weren’t drinking wine, Jacob’s rum punch and Christina’s negronis and old fashioneds were memorable. And when we weren’t busy eating and drinking, Jacob had a knack for effortlessly managing our itinerary, changing plans when needed to fit the weather, our interests, and our moods. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, Christina and Jacob are a real pleasure to spend time with. Never less than professional, C & J are lively, interesting, fun and funny. We could not have wished for better company!
Praise from Charter Broker on three well done charters
I have now had 3 charters with Jacob and Christina absolutely nailed it each time. The planning, the food, their personalities. . . . everything! It was very different groups from a family to a 35 wedding anniversary and all the clients were full of praise. Charter Broker
