Feel The Magic Yacht Charters
The brilliance of charter yacht Feel the Magic’s design is in the small details. She sports a wide beam and offers outstanding stability and exceptional space in the staterooms, saloon, cockpit and deck. The beautiful gourmet upper level galley shares its large panoramic view windows with the saloon and bar that form an exceptional entertainment area. Each of the four double cabins with en suite bathrooms and showers offer complete privacy for up to 8 guests. One of the most striking features of this yacht is the clean, modern interior and exterior design. Hank, a California surfer and Micheale, a sommelier and award-winning chef, team up to create yacht charters with a unique atmosphere of casual elegance, effortless luxury.

Mike (a.k.a. Hank) and Micheale are from San Diego, California, and are an adventurous, easy going couple who combine their individual talents and prior experiences to create an unforgettable sailing vacation for their guests of all ages. They make an excellent team who take enormous pride in their job as crew to create a relaxed, warm and safe environment. After years of sailing throughout the Caribbean and The Bahamas, Belize and southern California, they knew that the beautiful cruising grounds of the British Virgin Islands is where they were meant to be. It became harder and harder to go home after each sailing adventure and they finally started a 5-year plan to make this paradise “home”. It seemed crazy at times as they were selling all of their life possessions and leaving careers behind, but the experience has turned out to far exceeded anything they could have imagined.
HANK was born in Miami Beach and grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He holds a USCG 50 Ton Master License, is a PADI Certified Advanced and Rescue Diver and has obtained his Marine Safety STCW 95 and First Aid training. He enjoyed a successful career in the hospitality business for over 20+ years with two national restaurant chains specializing in multi unit operations, food safety, marketing and consulting. During this time, Hank moved throughout the United States and Canada, before ending up in San Diego where he fell in love with the ocean and became an avid surfer, sailor and water sport enthusiast. This love of water sports led him to adventures in Hawaii, Costa Rica, South Africa and throughout the Caribbean. Hank’s enthusiasm, experience and relaxed personality will add to an unforgettable vacation on Feel the Magic.
MICHEALE spent her early years growing up on a ranch in Nebraska, then moved to Dallas, Texas, where she attended high school & college. She has always loved being active on land and in the water, and is a sports enthusiast. After a successful 14 year career in real estate, she followed her passion into food and wine working in fine dining restaurants and the resort industry, then finally to a winery in southern California. She holds a Certified Sommelier (CS) and Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) certification and looks forward to pairing beautiful wines with your gourmet cuisine. Micheale is a certified RYT 200hr yoga instructor if you’d like to enjoy a beautiful practice beachside.
Micheale obtained her Marine Safety STCW 95, EMS First Aid training and is a SSI Certified Diver. Micheale is both friendly and extremely attentive to guests. She has a true flair for creating enticing menus from the freshest local ingredients and making each meal a memorable experience for their guests. Food, Wine, Yoga Travel and Entertaining are her passion.

FEEL THE MAGIC SAMPLE MENU
What We Like
Feel the Magic is spacious and beautiful and there are pretty decorative touches everywhere you look. Micheale and Hank really complement each other’s styles to make the perfect charter yacht team. There are tons of different water sport activities offered aboard so teenagers will never be bored. From a cool, motorized Sea Doo Scooter for propulsion under water to stand up paddle boards and kayaks, Feel The Magic has fun on the water covered! The 15 foot dinghy with a 70hp engine is fast enough for great water skiing, wake boarding and tubing. They even have a kite board! Guests will also be dazzled – as the islands top chefs are every year at the Fall Yacht Show- by Micheale’s cuisine. She has won first place 2 years in a row! Micheale is also a certified yoga instructor!

“The trip could not have been better.”
Hank and Micheale were unbelievable. We could not have asked for anyone better. Micheale’s cooking is world class. Hank’s knowledge of the area and the sea was also world class. The boat was very clean and well stocked with everything you could imagine. From toys, to drinks, snacks, etc. I cannot imagine that there is a better Charter than Feel the Magic. Just because I could not think of one thing they could have done better. It was truly a trip of a lifetime. Jeff S.
“Wow! What an awesome family vacation we had!”
This could not have been possible without the two of you. You both made us feel comfortable from the start, like we were already friends. Snorkeling was amazing, fishing was fun – a barracuda, a bone fish and almost a tarpon. You did a great job assessing our likes and finding just the right places to moor for our activities. Thank you both for everything – wonderful food, great sailing and the best of the Virgin Islands. We started as strangers and leave with two new friends. Debbie
“What an absolutely wonderful trip”
You two are just amazing. We had so much fun with you. Keep the disco ball charged up, we will be back! Terri O.
“It was truly life changing”
Thank you some for an awesome trip. Hank – thank you for taking us snorkeling and allowing me to skipper the boat. You helped me discover an aspect of life that I want to follow in the future. Micheale – thank you for all the amazing food”. Katie C .
“The kids are already begging to come back and Feel the Magic again next year”
Thank you for an amazing introduction to the BVI’s and all of your hospitality aboard Feel the Magic. From the moment we first set sail out of Red Hook, it was one adventure after another. As a family we were able to totally immerse ourselves in the “island vibe” and forget about cell phones, TV’s, homework, and the cold weather back home. Thanks for everything! Scott C.
“By far the most fun crew we have ever had the pleasure of knowing”
I think I might have found my own kind of paradise” (Zac Brown Band). I couldn’t have put this trip in any other words. Captain Hank & Micheale, you guys couldn’t have been any more fun, and although I have been to the BVI’s many times, you still made it interesting and amazing. Evan V.
“You guys rocked!”
I am trying to summarize this week’s events, but I can’t. I’ll just say Thank You for making me feel so comfortable. I was truly at peace this week. Thank you for bringing us to the beautiful sites and for cooking us the most delicious meals. Mary Ellen C.
“Life was good today!”
I was sitting on the back of the boat with my feet dangling over the water with a drink in my hand and not a care in the world. Life was good today! Hank and Micheale took great care of us and from start to finish – I felt safe, full and relaxed. As Hank’s playlist rolled on, I wanted to stay on the boat forever. Andrew V.
“We look forward to our next adventure together.”
Where do we begin and how do we thank you enough for giving our family one of our most memorable times together. The boat was great, the activities were a blast, the food was unbelievable, but the best part of the entire trip was getting to know the two of you. Your efforts to make sure we were comfortable and entertained went way beyond our expectations. The daytime adventures were fantastic, but the best part of each day was enjoying one of Micheale’s wonderful dinners, then being entertained by DJ Hank. Mark M.
“Thank you for an amazing trip.”
This trip would not have been nearly as much fun without you guys. Micheale you food was awesome and I could not wait for the next fantastic meal you were making. Hank you are a great Captain that always had fun things to do on and off the boat. Both of you were always there to help with whatever I needed and you were always fun to be around. Troy V.
“We were honored to have been your first guests of the season.”
What a week we had. You guys made a great team. We felt right at home on your yacht. We we’re definitely “Feel’in the Magic”. Hope you enjoyed us as much as we enjoyed you, because we will be back. Wendy & Tim
“There is really no way to describe this trip other than magical!”
Hank was an amazing captain and chaperone for our many adventures – day and night! Micheale was an amazing chef, every meal was fantastic! Best of luck in the future, can’t wait for our next trip. Dustin V.
