Free Inqwe Luxury Crewed Yacht Charter Reviews

Free Inqwe

"That’s how Matt and Melissa felt in 2005 when they came to the British Virgin Islands as guests on a seven-day sailing charter. In fact, they liked it so much that sixteen months later they left corporate America behind to start their new life as yacht crew in the BVI. Now they are the crew of Free Ingwe, a 45 ft. Leopard catamaran, and their job is to host your sailing vacation of a lifetime. Let them show you exactly how the BVI stole their hearts. So what made them do it? What made them leave the security of home to live such an adventure? Was it the gorgeous white sand beaches? The Caribbean water that shimmers in multiple shades of blue? Or the burning orange of the sun reflecting off the clouds as they wander the evening sky? Was it the crash of the waves over the bow, or the soothing sound of the ocean as you sail downwind? Was it discovering an endless number of fish and corals while scuba diving and snorkeling? Was it actually being able to water ski and wakeboard in the ocean!?!? Or hiking the lookout mountains pirates used to spot their prey as they crossed from the Spanish Main? Maybe it was lounging in a hammock, sipping painkillers at the Soggy Dollar Bar? It was probably a little of everything. If any of this sounds good to you, come inside and plan your greatest vacation.

Crew Information

  • Name: Matt Neidlinger
  • Role: Captain
  • Bio: I grew up boating, waterskiing and fishing on the Mississippi River in northwestern Illinois. My father was a US Naval officer and he taught me to love and respect the water at an early age. I also inherited my love of travel from him. I first visited the Caribbean in 1989 and I knew from that moment that the islands were very special. In the following years, while working as a diesel engine designer, I found myself spending all of my money on travel. So, I switched gears and worked in travel and tourism for the next decade. During that time, I realized that I enjoyed sharing the travel experience as much as the travel itself. In 2005 Melissa and I chartered a yacht in the BVI, and that was all it took. We instantly knew that we wanted to share the beauty of the Caribbean with as many people as possible. One year later we moved to the islands to start our career as charter yacht crew. currently hold a USCG 50-ton Master License, and am a PADI certified Divemaster. In my spare time I enjoy waterskiing, wakeboarding, snorkeling, and hiking the trails in the BVI. I also love playing bartender and tour-guide to those looking for a little adventure.

  • Name: Melissa Neidlinger
  • Role: Chef & First Mate
  • Bio: Hi! My name is Melissa, and I am the chef/first mate aboard Free Ingwe. I hope to show you a little bit of the beauty and grace of the Caribbean, while creating meals to keep you full and happy. I’ve always had an “obsession” with food, be it eating or making it. So after I graduated from Indiana University with a degree I had little interest in pursuing, I enrolled in the Culinary and Hospitality Institute of Chicago. It was there that I was able to turn my obsession into a career. I enjoy cooking… just about everything! I have a deep appreciation for all cuisines, from my own Midwest roots of comfort food to International zest. I enjoy taking an ordinary dish and adding an unexpected flair. It is my single greatest hope that I can provide meals that match the magic of your vacation. also enjoy boating and water activities. As a PADI certified Divemaster, I can assist in showing you the gorgeous sights of the world underwater. Enjoy snorkeling, water skiing, or just lounging in the water with a cold beverage? Me too! I will be on hand to offer suggestions on where to go, what to do, or what not to do. My personal interests include hiking, scuba diving, water skiing, running, doing crossword puzzles, drinking good wine with great friends, and meeting new people.
