Meet Your Crew!
Charter yacht Freedom’s entire crew on your Caribbean yacht charter is cross trained with each other’s skill sets so each crew member is fully capable of performing all necessary tasks needed to sail around the world, but each member also has their own areas of specialized expertise. Your entire captain and crew, all work together as a well-oiled machine to give you the sailing adventure of a lifetime. It’s a family affair with brothers Len and Fredrick and wife Barbie.
On Charter Yacht Freedom The Motto Is: “Let Our Family Take Care Of Yours”
Fredrick: Think of Fredrick as your personal Cruise Director, as no one is more suited than he is to help you plan yoursailing itinerary and all your recreation and entertainment activities, to keep you as busy or as relaxed as you choose to be during your yacht charter.With extensive experience in the hospitatlity industry(operating hotels, night clubs, and supper clubs), and as an event planner for large conventions, weddings, giant parties and boating events (from regattas to flotillas), Fredrick can work magic to give you YOUR dream vacation of a lifetime. As a much sought-after DJ in the Miami SouthBeach club & party scene, Fredrick knows what it takes to keep guests busy and entertained, or how to create a relaxing atmosphere where you can indulge your quieter side.
A former Hobie sailboat champion, enduro motorcycle racer, sky-diver,hypnotherapist, and world traveler to over 55 countries, Fredrick still enjoys his hobbies playing guitar, singing, photography, specialty cooking, and of course: being an avid boater (with a Master Captain’s license and 35 years’experience as a scuba diver). So whether you want your days relaxing or adventurous… and your nights quiet & romantic, or a wild night of tiki barhopping “Island Style”… he’s got you covered. Whatever your dreams are for your vacation, Fredrick will make them happen. What’s on your bucket list?
Zen-Len: Our multi-talented First-Mate and Chief Engineer, Zen-Len’s years of service as a U.S. Marine, SWAT Officer, Rescue-Diver (including astronaut & space shuttle),Firefighter, and Paramedic means your safety is assured on Freedom. As a Master Captain, DiveMaster, and Boy Scout Leader (not just a Life Scout, but a “scout forlife”), coupled with his ever-patient and pleasant demeanor, Len will help you get the most from your onshore nature and beach excursions, and any water activity…from sailing, to paddling, water tubing, to underwater fun.
Zen-Len is a life-long student of nutrition & fitness; religion, philosophy & spirituality, reflexology, Reiki,& therapeutic massage. His love and respect for all beliefs, mankind, the sea and nature is equaled only by his thoughtfulness and respect for all living creatures large and small. Let this “Old Soul” share some ancient wisdom (from Aristotle, Buddha, Confucius… to Zou Yan), or sooth away your aches from the day’s adventures. Greet the sunrise with a little yoga, rediscover your youth with secret Tibetan Rites, or enjoy his creative & delicious “healthy alternatives” at the juice bar, snacks, or dining. Zen-Len is Freedom’s adventurer… an eclectic dichotomy of left & right brain.
Barbie: Freedom’s First Lady, Barbie loves infusing her passion for boating, the sun and the sea, with her tropical specialty cooking — mixing exotic flavors with local island cuisines, creating delectable delights that you won’t find anywhere else. And “big things come in small packages” with this former bikini model that also holds a Master Captain’s license and is PADI scuba certified. Barbie operated a very popular boutique Bed & Breakfast (accommodating 11 guests) so she really knows how to cater to your special needs. With her down-home Alabama charm, this Southern Belle was the number one rated “host mom” five years in a row to collegiate foreign language students, getting top ratings in all three categories for her meals, accommodations, and hospitality.
It’s Barbie’s attention to detail that’s sure to give you a Caribbean yacht charter you will never forget. Families vacationing with kids will enjoy Barbie’s “Freedom Kids” activities — filling their time with supervised fun so that Mom & Dad can have a little “Freedom” too… Freedom to dive, Freedom to explore, or Freedom to just relax in the sun knowing their kids are well cared for nearby. It’s almost like having your own “nanny” or “Au Pair” so you can experience and enjoy “TRUE Freedom” on your Dream Vacation of a lifetime.

It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This
Sunshine, Laughs, beautiful crystal blue water, amazing sunsets, fabulous food, mid-afternoon naps, swimming, dancing, and on and on. I don’t’ think it gets any better than being on this boat in the Virgin Islands. We had such an amazing time. There is nothing like this around and we wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. We can’t thank you both enough!!!
The Best Vacation Ever!
For those considering chartering a boat for a holiday, I can say that it is incomparable to any experience you will have at a hotel/resort. It is fun, adventurous, relaxing and beautiful all at the same time. However, the experience is highly dependent on the crew. We have friends who did not have the same experience as we did because of their crew, which is why I am writing this letter, to make it easier to assess the team running Freedom.
Fredrick (Captain), his wife Barbie, and brother Len made this trip very special. The team made sure that everyone was well looked after, comfortable, well fed and always happy about everything, whether it be excursions to shore, restaurant choices, activities (scuba diving, snorkeling or just hanging out) or sharing their knowledge about the region. The food Barbie (and Fredrick – don’t miss his amazing French toast) prepared was wonderful. Cocktails were great (Len went to great lengths to find a drink that matched our perfect idea of a tropical fruit mix – ask for a Hummingbird) and the sailing was fun. Whatever we seemed to want the crew was excited to make happen.
We were traveling with our son (13) and daughter (16) with school roommate. In addition we had four more of our daughters friends join us for New Year’s eve. We usually travel to 5 star hotels and have been to many places around the world. This is not the same – just better and more exciting. All of us, at the end of the trip and without hesitation, declared this the best vacation we have ever been on.

We Felt Like One Big Happy Family
Captain Frederick, Len and Barbie were gracious hosts, along with their Galley girls, Lisa and Courtney. We couldn’t have asked for better service and the food was amazing!! The variety, presentation and portions for breakfast, lunch & dinner were beyond our expectations. They were so attentive to detail and we didn’t have to ask for anything. The bedrooms & bathrooms were cleaned each day, making us feel like we were in a upscale hotel. They offered activities daily to fit everyone’s lifestyle and solicited our input each day regarding our travel itinerary for each day. Frederick and Len were very accommodating in taking us in the dingy to Willy T’s, Soggy Dollar and Foxy’s, not to mention to various snorkel area’s around the BVI and provided us with fantastic photos/video to capture the precious memories of our trip.

The Crew MADE our Vacation Experience
The entire crew was very personable and made us feel comfortable from day one. We felt like one big happy family and it was very sad to leave them at the end of our charter. I would highly recommend the Freedom for future charters. The boat was very nice, but the crew “made” our vacation experience in the BVI one to remember for a lifetime.
