Flying Across the BVI

Soar like an eagle aboard Aerie a 38 metre superyacht from the American builder Delta. This fabulously maintained yacht was built by the yard in 2001 and refitted in 2009. She carries just eight guests in superb comfort served by an incredibly well trained crew headed up by Captain Keith Talasek and his wife Chief Stewardess Silja Laakso-Talasek who originally hails from Sweden.

We have spent time aboard the yacht researching for an article that will in time appear inside SuperYacht World magazine and can personally vouch for her credentials. Chef Tracy Ireland is one of those incredibly clever cooks who manages to create healthy food that is both beautiful on the plate and yet still manages to give the taste buds a good kicking.

In another husband and wife team, Dan the first mate is a highly accomplished diver whose style and enthusiasm is so infectious that you cannot wait to get into the water with him while back on board his wife Charlotte looks after your every need as the yachts stewardess.

No crew is complete without a deckhand and Chris Adelsflugel is one heck of a guy who simply cannot do enough to make the guests feel at home. He says he is so happy to do his job he has to pinch himself every so often just to prove he is awake and not just living his dream.

A really great boat and one we highly recommend. She can be chartered through Fraser Yachts. Drop central agent Amy Wachmann a line and tell her we told you to do so.
