- Crew ProfileCaptain: Brand Van Dyk
Brand grew up in Middelburg, a small country town in South Africa. The beautiful region, dotted with lakes, and a dad who took his sons hiking, camping, boating and fishing, inspired Brand’s love for the mountains and exploring the outdoors. The hobie cat he commanded as a small boy ignited his passion for sailing.
It is no surprise that Brand ultimately steered a course away from the corporate world toward a career that combines his love for sailing, diving entertaining, meeting new people and exploring. He has sailed thousands of miles worldwide and has been a charter yacht captain in the British and U.S. Virgin Islands for the last four years.
While Brand knows how to host a discreet charter, he most enjoys an interactive charter. He says, “I have a few secret spots where I love to take my guests for a sundowner drink with some bubbly and I also love to show my guests the underwater world while snorkeling or diving.” Simply put, Brand eagerly shares the best of everything, above and below the waterline.
Brand has the sort of easy going personality that makes everyone feel comfortable. He’s a patient instructor and his enthusiasm can be contagious. Don’t be surprised if you’re trimming the sails, or spontaneously attempting to free dive or kiteboard with him, he inspires confidence. His goal is to make every day of every charter the most remarkable. His repeat charter guests will tell you he succeeds.
Brand and his partner, Jayde have been living and chartering in the Virgin Islands. They are both qualified Captains, Brand is certified RYA Offshore and Jayde is an RYA Coastal Skipper. In addition to skilled seamanship, this charming team is fun, energetic and intelligent, exactly what it takes to run a successful charter yacht. Impeccable reviews testify to their popularity and professionalism. They are non smokers, immaculate organizers and passionate about sailing.
Jayde has been cooking for charters for four years now, and has always received fantastic reviews on her food for both presentation and quality.Chef/Mate: Jayde Couzyn
Jayde is the sort of effervescent personality that never has a bad mood. The glass is always full of something wonderful. She is an intrepid adventurer who seeks out the new and exciting; exploring new places, meeting new people and learning new skills. In addition to being an excellent chef and a certified captain, she’s a scuba diver, horse rider and kite boarder. Guests aboard Seahome always compliment her cuisine as well as her ability to anticipate guests and provide for guests needs.
Jayde grew up on a farm in South Africa, surrounded by all sorts of animals amidst the beauty of nature. While the childhood setting was idyllic, it was the two months she spent every year on the seashore with her grandmother that inspired both her cooking and her wanderlust. Her most cherished memories are of time spent in Grandmas kitchen, learning cooking tips and tricks and family recipes.
Jayde says, “My favorite style of cooking is fresh, healthy and hearty meals; because that’s the way I like to eat.” Guests will tell you she adds those special gourmet touches that make her food delicious. She also excels at special diets and special requests. Even when Jayde is not in the galley whipping up something delightful, she is likely planning something special, an activity or experience, that will be a highlight for guests to remember long after their charter.Stew: Louise Langello
Louise grew up in Mt. Gretna, Pennsylvania, a truly small town (population of 197) surrounded by pastures, fields and woods. She and her three sisters were sports enthusiasts and enjoyed the great outdoors as their playground. They also taught special needs athletes and assisted their father who started and coached the Special Olympics soccer team. Every year the family vacationed on the eastern seaboard. It was a great adventure. They never visited the same spot twice. Visiting new places, meeting new people, and experiencing new things became Louise’s lifelong passion.
In 2009, Louise graduated from the Baltimore School of Massage and made the exciting move from land-locked Pennsylvania to the sandy shores of the Virgin Islands. She recalls, “Never did I think I would work on boats until my first power boat excursion to the British Virgin Islands. I was nothing but smiles, felt extremely blessed, and made it my goal to work on the water.”
Louise is very good-natured, makes friends easily, enjoys a good joke and a sundowner now and then. She is a wonderful companion for charter guests who want to hike, snorkel, scuba dive, or have an adventure. Anegada is her favorite destination on a charter itinerary. Here locals surround the yacht to sing out their lobster recipes, white sand beach wraps the entire island, the reef is spectacular, and the ways to have fun are infinite.

March 12 – 18, 2018 – Absolutely Loved it!
Brand, Jayde & Louise;
Best part of the trip was sailing to Anegada and then spending the day at remote places on the beach. Also spotting three humpback whales.
The best part of the trip was when we went to the cove with the abandoned house & goats. Thank you so much, the food was kool.
Just love the Seahome Crew! Thank you for taking care of my wife and wild boys. They/we absolutely loved it! Every part was my favorite.
The best vacation ever!
My favorite part of the trip was snorkeling with the fish and turtles. The food was really good as well, and it was fun to go to the bar and party!
I loved everything about the trip and could not pick a favorite part. I hope we come back again soon to sail with you all again.
You are an amazing crew. The two of you pulled it off. The snorkeling, turtles, to see this beautiful part of the world. Still wish I had caught a tarpon, but since I didn’t I will have to come back!
This was one of the most amazing trips ever and it’s impossible to pick a favorite. You guys are amazing and I hope we get to see you again soon!

Dear Seahome! What an amazing trip this has been! Thank you so much for being so welcoming. We feel like you all are old friends after only one week. Everyday felt like a new adventure and we appreciate you all showing us some of your favorite spots. Anagada was my personal favorite and Pamato Point was my favorite moment. You made us all feel so special, but especially Kris. Thankful we could all be together on his 40th in such a beautiful place. We all can’t wait to come back! Thank you for a true trip of a lifetime! We love you all!

New Years 2017 – 2018 ~ Trip of a Lifetime!
John often talks about “trip of a lifetime”. Compared to all of our other trips, this experience on the Seahome, has absolutely been the trip of a lifetime. We enjoyed the beauty of the islands we visited, the time with our friends, the delicious food and drink, the kayaking,snorkeling, John’s riding on the bull, the sunbathing and we will always remember. We will also remember each of you. It was a pleasure getting to know a little about your lives and your experiences. You are amazing young people. We hope you will Visit us in Mississippi and it would be amazing to get to sail with you again. Thank you for truly the “Trip of a Lifetime”.
This has been the best vacation I have ever been on. Thank you so much for everything. The food, hospitality and just being so gracious. I hope that we can come aboard Seahome again. It has truly been our “Seahome”this week.
Words can’t truly describe this week’s memories for me. Y’all are the absolute best!
You helped us make Seahome our home this week and this,by far, has been the best trip ever. Asa mother of 2 busy redheads & workaholic husband, it’s been nice to betaken care of. And I’m also glad Will has been able to relax in quite some time. This week has been beyond anything I can ever have imagined. I am sad to go. All of you have been awesome! God Bless you in all your travels!
First, my compliments to the boat owner, he has picked the most amazing crew that is not only easy on the eye but a group that make you feel like they have been in your life for a few years already. Their patience, knowledge and sincerity has no comparison. The boat itself is perfect! Of course the sights were amazing, but it takes the people you share your time with that makes a trip something you don’t want to leave. This vacation was just that – a trip I will look back on often, for the delicious food, gorgeous surroundings, but most of all great times with great friends, old and new!

April 12-17, 2017 ~ Broker Comments
I spoke with Lisa late on Friday. She apparently didn’t have much time to talk, but did tell me how much she, and her whole party, enjoyed their cruise aboard SEAHOME. She told me that one couple in her party had been on numerous charters, and said that this charter by far was the best. Brand, Jayde and Louise did an amazing job of accommodating their every wish with a smile. She also said SEAHOME was a beautiful yacht, and the meals served aboard were fantastic; better than those served in most restaurants.
This charter was to be Lisa’s surprise for her husband’s 50th birthday, and it was pulled off perfectly. She said her husband Steve had no idea of what was in store for him until they arrived at the marina. He was thrilled, and said this was the best birthday ever.
Lisa did say they would most likely be ready to book again in 2 or 3 years.
To the crew of SEAHOME, thank you again for all your efforts in seeing that the Lisa 's charter party had memorable week aboard your yacht.
4-9 April, 2017 ~ BVI
Another fantastic charter on Seahome!
3-10 March, 2017 ~ BVI at it's BEST!
The crew was amazing, the yacht better than expected. The captain went out of his way to make our vacation a pleasure and the cuisine was amazing!The yacht was very clean and we’d come back again anytime! We would choose this yacht again for another charter and recommend it to our friends. It was the BEST!
Lyn & Steve
We agree with Lynn & Steve on all the above! Our highlights were the lunches, the Anagada sunset and excellent snorkeling. It was Amazing!
