copper penny - testimonials
Fidelity, BVI crewed charter yacht
To say we had an amazing time and loved everything is an understatement. Jerry & Dawn were wonderful hosts and did everything we asked for and more. We had an idea of things we wanted to see but their knowledge of the area was a huge plus to help us craft the most enjoyable itinerary. Even though the BVI is still recovering from the awful hurricanes of last year we thoroughly enjoyed the weather & water activities, Scuba diving & seeing some really cool stuff. We all felt comfortable with Jerry's expertise to provide fun experiences but more importantly, safe ones. Dawn's meals & Jerry's cocktails were highlights of the trip. We enjoyed variety the menu offered. Meeting our dietary special needs isn’t easy for anyone, Dawn took it in her stride and never made us feel like it was a bother.

Copper Penny was a beautiful vessel with many comforts of home. We all enjoyed our rooms, the dining areas & especially the bridge up top. It was great fun to sit up there enjoying the quiet of the sail while reading or listening to Jerry fill us in on areas we saw or watching the crew at work getting the sails in place and back again. We would highly recommend the team of Dawn & Jerry aboard Copper Penny to anyone looking for a bucket list vacation.


Jim and Amanda were awesome. They are great people and were superb hosts. We found them to be very knowledgeable and they were always willing to answer our questions and provide information about what we were experiencing. They also struck a perfect balance of attentiveness without being overbearing. We were waiting for there to be at least one so-so meal but it never came. Our only complaint (if it could be a complaint) was that the portions were too big for us to finish! Delicious.

That was an amazing and memorable trip. We would highly recommend Jim and Amanda and the Copper Penny for anyone looking for a fun and relaxing adventure. 

This was our second charter with Jim and Amanda and it was fabulous. Words cannot describe how perfect our trip was. The two make you feel at home and are there for your every need. Jim took us on some of best adventures that anyone could dream of and Amanda could not spoil us enough with her food and drinks. When my husband and I, kids and friends, look back on these trips, we cannot help but smile and reminisce about the great times we had. Jim and Amanda have made each trip special; we were even blessed to have Captain Jim officiate our 25th wedding vow renewals on Anguilla. They are not only a captain and first mate to us, they are good friends. I guess to sum it all up - we are booking another trip with these two... that should tell you how awesome it was and how awesome they are!

I cannot emphasize enough the value added to our vacation experience because of Bryan and Ava [previous crew]. They were the perfect hosts for our week in the BVI. Bryan was incredibly knowledgeable and able to show us a few hidden gems. He was completely professional but also easy going and a pleasure to be around. He was a phenomenal dive master – so calm and calming especially given 5 of the 6 of us were newly certified. Ava was very professional and accommodating. She anticipated our needs and catered to everyone’s individual tastes without being asked. She was great company and always eager to play a game with the kids.

For many reasons it was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had! Bryan and Ava [previous crew] took wonderful care of us. We never had to worry about anything! They are both so easy to get along with and really wanted to make our experience tailored to our likes. From the minute we woke up, we felt pampered and taken care of. We called ourselves the “clean plate club” because we absolutely loved the healthy fresh meals they both prepared! We ate one meal off the boat and it wasn’t half as good as their cooking! Bryan worked with us so that we would get plenty of snorkeling, diving, and shopping. And Ava made cocktails better than any bar in the BVI! My girls 24, 20 and 15 felt like Bryan and Ava were part of the family. They were the perfect match for us.
