Born and raised in Durban, on the east coast of South Africa, Grant lived around the water and mountains experiencing all aspects of the outdoors while growing up. Family vacations and weekends where spent taking part in water sports, fishing and riding off-road motorcycles. After finishing college he started a career in sales for Land Rover & Jaguar. While the company car was a great perk, he soon realized that he longed for the outdoors.


Looking for opportunity elsewhere, he gravitated towards yachting. Having a strong background with water sports and boats he found no difficulty adapting to that new life style which began in the South of France working on super yachts. He then made the move to the BVI working on catamarans and realized that the interactions with guests and being apart of something bigger, someone's happiness and memorable moments was really what drove him. 


Outside of yachting, Grant's other passions are kitesurfing, water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing and golf. He looks forward to sharing those activities and stories with guests.

Ulrika was born in the northern part of Finland. As a child she would often go sailing with a family friend and was always fascinated by the sea. Every summer Ulrika spent months in the Swedish archipelago at her grandmother’s villa. Her grandmother grew everything herself: a variety of different food crops, vegetables, herbs, fruit and berries. Her grandmother hosted countless beautiful family feasts that brought the whole family together. This experience built the foundation to Ulrika’s interest in food and cooking at a young age.


While Ulrika was in high school, she went on an exchange year in Thailand where she spent the year living with the locals and learning about the culture and the language. During her time in Thailand she also fell in love with the local cuisine. Ulrika soon realized how much she loved traveling and exploring new places, cultures and cuisines. 


A few years later she got accepted into one of the world’s top ranking art universities in Helsinki, Finland to study product design. During these years she would often find herself catering for events, exhibitions and vernissages and always dreaming of and planning the next adventure. She moved to Stockholm and ended up working in tech for some years. She longed for a change and decided to pick up her sailing skills and took a sailing course in Tenerife. After rediscovering her childhood dreams of sailing and falling in love with the sea all over again she decided to take a close friend’s advice and combine her love for the sea and cooking.



This trip was my favorite trip I've ever been on. The food was absolutely incredible, words can't describe how much I loved it. Tubing was soooo much fun but I was scared for my life. I wish I could never leave. I hope you remember us!! We will be back. You made this place feel like home.

You guys were so kind and were so fun. Grant going tubing with you was the best you were whipping us around and we said many things while tubing. Ulrika I don't even know how to start with your cooking. It was the most/best food I have ever had. Going on this boat was the best thing I've ever done. I had the most fun in my life ever. You guys were so interactive and were so nice. I loved to be able to tell you stories of our days and set the table which I wish I did more. I hope you will be able to make more memories with you guys. 

Thank you for an amazing week! Our family had a wonderful time, everything was perfect. You outdid yourselves from the hospitality, itinerary and delicious food. We hope to cross paths with you again soon! Please stay in touch and find us in Annapolis!

You guys are THE BEST! You created such an incredibly memorable trip! Thank you for everything!


Chris' 50th Birthday Floatilla! Grant and Ulrika, thank you so much for the trip of a lifetime! You both are absolutely incredible. Thank you for helping to bring our dreams to reality. Coordinating with two additional boats was a challenge, but you made it look easy. We loved every minute and we so appreciate how you catered to our variety of needs - so many different food allergies and ages. The kids love tubing! The food was absolutely exquisite. Ulrika, you spoiled us with every customized meal. And Chris' surprise birthday party was a highlight.


Ulrika and Grant - A special thanks to the two of you for a wonderful week, you both made it all so special. The food was fabulous. What a chef! The sightseeing and Grant's captaining the boat was the best. Grant - I give you a special thank you for getting me on and off the boat. Wishing you both the best in your future.

Ulrika and Grant - I wish you many more travels. You both have provided to us a warm, wonderful experience. You should be most proud of your hard work. You make it seem effortless. I couldn't have felt more cared for. A vacation to treasure.


Thank you both for guiding our family of seven through the BVI's. It was our first long trip with kids, and thanks to your generosity and wonderful service, it will definitely be a trip we look forward to repeating very soon. Amazing food and so much fun for the kids! We all loved it more than we hoped! Happy New Year!

We have enjoyed the most fabulous week as three generations age 8 - 72. It has been, without a doubt, the best experience that we could have hoped for. Thank you.

Ulrika, your hospitality and sweet nature have been a pleasure. You are a talented chef and how you baked fresh delicious bread at sea is a mystery! Amazing!

Orlagh, your calm and patient nature and experience was so valued. You know the best places to see and we quickly learned to take every recommendation.


Ulrika - Thank you for the wonderful creations we were treated to during this trip. The tuna bowl was amazing! Then there was the lobster. Everything beautifully presented. Sorry we did not meet Grant on this trip, hope you have a great season!

Hugo - What a refreshing presence you have been! Quick thinking in our medical issues! Great bartender, conversationalist and sailor. You are wiser beyond your years, with a talent to keep everyone happy no matter their age and interest. Thank you!


Thank you so much for making our trip unforgettable. The memories made with my Dad will be treasured. It is because of your attention to detail, charming personalities and passion to the love of sailing. We enjoyed getting to know you!

Thank you so much for the most amazing week. Our family, spanning grandparents, kids, grandkids, and of course in-laws had the greatest time. Your knowledge of everything - from the local seas, to the cooking capabilities, to our family's varying preferences on everything - made it an especially remarkable experience. We had the greatest time, all because of you two. We will share below some thoughts from our own children/grandchildren, to whom you were particularly amazing.

I love Mollie and Thomas. I had a grate week with them thank you a lot.

Thank you Molly and Thomas! This has been the most amazing week of my life. I will forget you guys!

P.S. . . . .Best . . . . Week . . . .EVER!

With the utmost thanks and highest recommendation.


We thank you for your hospitality and kindness during our week on Ad Astra. You were perfect hosts, taking care of all of our needs and wishes. You are gifted with all you do. Tom - you are a cook and calm captain. You always made sure we had the best spots!! Mollie - your love shined through your cooking and over each meal, snack and latte you served us. We will miss you and hope to sail with you again in the future.


Thank you so much for all you have done for us this week! It's a sign of a great trip when by the end we can call our crew friends. Extra special thank you for taking care of your "difficult passenger" (with all of my sea sickness). I wish we could join you for the next two weeks, but since we can't I hope you both have some relaxing down time together. We' see you in Amsterdam!


You did an amazing job making Ad Astra an idyllic vacation destination! The boat is beautifully redone and so comfortable! But the best part was you two - your welcoming spirit and enthusiasm for making our family vacation and Christmas so memorable! Tom you are such a calm, confident skipper and we loved our sails this week! You take such meticulous care of the boat! Mollie, the food was absolutely amazing and every day blew us away! We come away with so many memories - barracuda, amazing lattes, back flips, the caves, tubing, snorkeling everywhere, the sail from Anegada, Soggy Dollar - all of it! You guys are the best!


Our family had a dreamy week on Ad Astra and Tom and Mollie were the most wonderful hosts, catering to our every need in the most comfortable, gracious manner. The boat accommodated us all so comfortable and was perfectly appointed so that we could take full advantage of relaxing among the natural beauty around us. We were so well taken care of from start to finish, from our fabulous itinerary, our sails, our excursions, and the amazing food and drinks, it was a week we will never forget. We are already thinking of when we get back on board with Tom and Mollie!
