CAPTAIN: Gerrie Schoeman
CHEF/FIRST MATE: Hettie Schoeman

Experienced in the hospitality industry for more than 20 years, Gerrie and Hettie Schoeman are your captain and first mate…or chef and first mate depending on the hat they happen to be wearing at the time. This married couple has worked together for years and their view on life is all about creating memories – ensuring yours is the best ever, in turn making theirs pretty special too.
As experienced sailors, resort managers, qualified tour guides, safari operators and seasoned travelers, they are the perfect team to take care of you on your sailing charter.
With a witty sense of humor, genuine care for the environment and great communication and people skills, they embrace an infectious love of life.

Their love for sailing started in 2010 when they moved to Cape Town, where they sailed the west coast of Southern Africa and earned their sailing certifications. In 2014 Gerrie attempted the Cape to Rio regatta as a member of a crew of 4 but had to return to Cape Town after 5 days, having suffered damages to their boat when hit by a severe cyclone. From Cape Town they moved to the Eastern Caribbean, offering all-inclusive catamaran charters. It was in these tropical waters that Hettie developed an enthusiasm for snorkeling and underwater photography.
They too owned and operated Destination Africa, a 4x4 self-drive safari company, operating in 8 different Southern African countries. During this time, they built and managed Kabula Lodge, a popular safari and tiger fishing spot on the Zambezi River in Zambia.

Not afraid of new challenges, they also founded The Ark, an events venue, on the scenic Route 62 in the Southern Cape, South Africa. The Ark included a 40-seat restaurant, sports bar, curio shop and take-away kiosk, as well as a winery and theatre and a guest house accommodating the visitors to this venue.

In 2018 they were offered the opportunity to manage Calala, a private island and 5-star exclusive all-inclusive establishment in the Nicaribbean (Caribbean off the coast of Nicaragua), hosting a maximum of 8 guests and managing 26 wonderful staff members.

After these amazing experiences, Gerrie & Hettie can’t wait to welcome you onboard S/V Beyond Stardust and share all they have to offer in the amazingly beautiful Virgin Islands.

Words can't describe it...

Words can't describe what a fantastic vacation this was for our family. The laughter, smiles and adventure will be memories for a lifetime. The food was outstanding. I'm not sure I have ever seen Tray and Josie eat that much. They loved every bite, as did we. Thank you so much for your hospitality - the Capt Pain Killers were the best around. We look forward to keeping up and hope to join you soon on our next charter. This will be one of many for our family

We can't than you enough for all the memories we will be taking home and quality time we shared as a family

Sam, Katie, Josie and Tray

Pure Magic...

Unlike most guest visits, mine was not booked and planned months in advance, but rather a last minute lucky escape from winter in Auckland. That meant that I had no time to Google what to expect or even save my most instagrammable spots and shots.

I had to say out loud the locations visited every day for it to sink in... I still can't believe i am in breathtaking Maho - writing this review.

From the friendly greetings at the dock, to the friendly wake-up chats every morning, to the late night tequilas on the deck - your hospitality and non stop positive energy was pure magic!!

Thanks for taking me to all the Caribbean hotspots and thanks for ensuring that I turn my side angles and suck in my tummy when taking my exotic pics for the gram - lovely Hettie.

This trip was food for the heart, soul and belly. The Caribbean and all guests are lucky to have you, Gerrie & Hettie.


Spectacular Adventure

Thanks you for 5 spectacular days of adventure. We will forever be grateful for the experiences we had. Loved the snorkeling in Mahoe, the Indians and the quiet cove on our last night. The Baths were incredible with the beautiful caves and Devil's Cove. Pirate's Bight will always be memorable with Willie T's. The two of you are the most gracious, wonderful hosts. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and safe the entire time. We will never forget the 3 feasts a day. The tastes from all over the world were superb and amazingly special.

What an awesome cruise...

What an awesome cruise and time we had. Gerrie & Hettie took us to the best spots in the BVI. Captain Gerrie was spot on with his ideas and planning. Hettie was non-stop preparing awesome meals the entire cruise. What an awesome team they are. I could go on and on about this trip!

Dennis "The Mafia Boss"

What an experience!

Our experience was indescribable. From the moment we were picked up at the dock, our welcome was so warm and friendly. Everything was so laid back, the food was amazing and like nothing we have tried before. All of the places we went were spectacular and some of the most beautiful we have ever seen. The trips that mean the most are the ones you spend giving and taking knowledge. Gerrie and Hettie did just that. We now know the true meaning of "woman" - a wonderful captain & chef. Along with some amazing friends and great weather, this made for one of the most relaxing vacations ever.

Jill & Tory

Absolutely amazing

Well what can we say, except that it was absolutely amazing. All the dishes were delicious and presentation was beautiful. The hospitality was top notch and knowledge of the islands and places to go was superb. Could not have asked for a better experience. Hope to see you again in the future.

Dennis & Denise

Once in a lifetime experience

We planned this trip 6 months ago and could not wait to get there. From day one the hospitality, kindness and knowhow around the boat ensured our trip was once in a lifetime with friends. Thank you for every view each time we stopped. We are leaving as family and we love "uncle" Gerrie & "auntie" Hettie. BEST FOOD EVER!

Brandy & Sean

Simply the best

Our expectations were far exceeded this past week on Beyond Stardust. Gerrie & Hettie were the best hosts and adapted to our desires of the day - which typically included relaxing, snorkeling and hanging on the beach. The food was phenomenal and we did not feel hungry when leaving the boat. Night time included games and wonderful stories told by Gerie & Hettie. Thank you for a wonderful trip - this was simply the best.

Exceeded our expectations

This week on Beyond Stardust exceeded our expectations. Captain Gerry quickly changed our itinerary once he realised how much we loved swimming & snorkeling. So many great spots...all so different and unique. We really liked hearing the history of the area and absolutely loved getting to meet the famous Mr Foxy. He was quite a character. And Hettie a beautiful, kind, sweet & funny lady. Her meals were so tasty and we enjoyed tasting some South African dishes. We loved everything about this week, especially when we had the sails up and the engines off.

Amazing time

My family had an amazing time aboard Beyond Stardust. The husband and wife team, Gerrie & Hettie, exceeded our expectations and are passionate about sailing. The food onboard and their attention to detail was exceptional. We were able ti visit desired locations in the BVI and also in the USVI. We had a very relaxing vacation! Our experience from pick up at the Airport using their suggested driver until we got back to the Airport was a seamless vacation adventure.

Barbara & Family

Best Experience

This was by far my best experience! Gerrie and Hettie are very communicative, their hospitality couldn't be improved and conversations with them are just delightful. This was my first time on a boat and I must say it is certainly not going to be my last time. I really recommend you arrange a charter with them.


Definitely a great time

Nothing but love for Gerrie and Hettie, and their lovely boat! Outstanding hospitality, cleanliness throughout, safe environment, and most definitely a great time.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our time with Gerrie and Hettie, genuinely good people who we feel like we can now call friends.

Sean & Nelly

Outstanding Hospitlity

Outstanding Hospitality! And a unique adventure. I would recommend this for anyone remotely interested in boating life or casual sailing. Loved it! Gerrie and Hettie are clearly experienced and enjoy what they do.

Doug & Sandra

Adventure and Relaxation

What a wonderful time! We booked 7 all inclusive sailing days which were so adventurous and relaxing. We were able to explore multiple islands and watch the sunset from a different location almost every night. We snorkelled in multiple locations and also learned quite a bit about the art of sailing. We felt very safe and comfortable in their care. Not only are they incredible sailors, they are also extremely friendly and open minded. By the end of the week it felt like saying goodbye to family. If you are looking for a relaxing and fun sailing adventure, a trip with Gerrie and Hettie is for you


Amazing Time!

My partner and I stayed with Gerrie and Hettie for 5 nights. We had an amazing time on the boat in a hospitable and homey atmosphere. My partner and I were able to enjoy each other's company while also having pleasant conversations with Gerrie and Hettie. Gerrie and Hettie became our friends over these 6 days, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to any prospective guests.


Amazing Stay

We had an amazing stay on Hettie and Gerries yacht. The boat is great and the two are super friendly and just good fun. It was our best sailing experience ever.

Andy & Maren


Wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our hosts, Gerrie and Hettie, were absolutely wonderful. Staying with them on the yacht was comfortable and so much fun. They offered a personalised touch to everything from the welcoming chocolates on the pillow and rum punch toast on arrival to a special party for our daughter. We shared wonderful conversations and comfortable spaces the way you do with old friends. Thank you Gerrie and Hettie for being such gracious hosts who we now consider friends
