Jeni Tidmarsh

Jeni Tidmarsh, the founder of The Luxury Charter Group, has built her company's enviable reputation on more than 40 years of sailing the waters of the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and the South Pacific, and through a strong alignment to the luxury charter yacht industry worldwide.

Jeni has had a wide range of yachting experience. Her highly successful business has emerged from her vast experience both on and off the water. She has crewed on charter yachts; delivered yachts across the world's oceans; been a sailmaker; worked on the development of marinas; been the advertising manager for a yachting magazine; owned her own yacht which she cruised, raced extensively, and competed in the intense cauldron of one-on-one match racing.

Jeni brings this vast knowledge – a vibrant blend of marine and travel experiences – to her company.

Her remarkable success story with The Luxury Charter Group has evolved through a perfect amalgam – dedication to her clients, a genuine appreciation of their expectations for a luxury yacht charter experience, a highly valuable knowledge of the world's best cruising destinations, and through having a personally selected fleet of luxury yachts available for charter.

'Our passion is yachting and our pledge to our clients is to deliver an exclusive charter experience through professional and personalised service,' Jeni declares with pride. 'It is an approach that sees the Luxury Charter Group having an ever-increasing number of clientele returning to us for new adventures, and others who come to us through recommendations from our loyal clientele'.

'We are always working in the interests of our charterers; constantly travelling the world, visiting existing charter destinations, looking for exciting new cruising opportunities, and inspecting all types of yachts for inclusion in our portfolio of luxury charter vessels.

Xenia Bregianni

French-born Xenia was raised in Greece and from a young age enjoyed travel and the coastal lifestyle.

Xenia has been in the charter business for 10 years, and prior to that, was an accomplished and formally trained jeweller, working in Greece and New York.

In 2012, she followed her passion for the sea and embraced a career in charter.

After obtaining her sailing license and various qualifications and certificates, she started her yachting career and within two years, was offered a permanent crew position on board one of the most successful catamarans in Greece – SERENITY.  

Recognised for her skills and client service prowess, Xenia made the passage on the yacht from France to Greece and remained on board for eight years, rising to a senior role of managing and running the yacht’s maintenance.

In 2022, Serenity was sold, and Xenia took the opportunity to pursue a different path within the charter industry, joining Luxury Charter Group as a Broker. Over the many years, the team at LCG had worked closely with Xenia and admired her expertise and professionalism.

During her decade aboard charter yachts, Xenia developed a genuine ability to communicate with charter guests and cater to their needs and their vision of the ideal charter.

“Chartering a yacht is more than a sightseeing trip around the islands,” she says. “It is about stepping out of routine, leaving the constraints of normal life onshore, experiencing new destinations in privacy and comfort, reconnecting with and creating memories among family and friends.”

An expert on charter around the Greek Islands, Xenia knows that an important part of the guest experience is fascinating itineraries and insight into new cultures, which means that every charter is unique no matter the destination.

Xenia speaks four languages: French, Greek, English fluently, and Spanish, and brings to LCG her unrivalled knowledge of the myriad Greek Islands, itineraries to recommend based on weather conditions, a local’s repertoire of authentic Greek experiences, and her ability to match suitable yachts and crew for her clients.

Based on her experience, Xenia knows the most important part of charter for guests is to leave the planning and execution to the experts and just savour every moment.

Emily Mack

Emily is Luxury Charter Group’s charter broker, and valued Team member based in USA, attending to our Clients in North and South America with professionalism, expertise and dedication.

Emily's commitment extends beyond her role at Luxury Charter Group she actively contributes to the charter industry's growth. Her influential presence on various Charter Association boards, including her 11-year tenure at CYBA, where she recently steered the association through the challenging times of COVID as President, demonstrates her leadership and commitment. She is currently Acting Secretary of AYCA (American Yacht Charter Association).

With 20 years’ experience in the charter industry, Emily has earned a reputation for working with guests to successfully craft their ideal charter vacations by matching them with yacht and crew, and with itineraries in their preferred destinations.

Over the past two decades, her reward for diligent and perceptive work is client feedback that attests to her insight. “When guests let me know that they felt well cared for and well matched with their vacation, or when crew let me know they couldn't have asked for a better fit in terms of guests … these are the highlights.”

Emily has had a lifelong love of the sea and all it offers. In fact, Emily and her family live so close to the ocean, they can smell the salt air from their front door.

Her diverse background includes roles in special education, lobstering, oystering, and marine resource assistance, showcasing her versatility and dedication to maritime pursuits.

“A career in the charter industry found me in a way,” she says. “I was not aware that this was a ‘thing’ when at age 24, I applied for a position and was trained from the ground up by one of the most respected brokers for Caribbean Charters at the time. I fell in love immediately with getting to know the boats and crews and using that knowledge to match guests to an unforgettable experience.”

“Charter vacations are unique in their scope and diversity”, Emily says.

“Having the flexibility to explore so much of a region while keeping the comfort and security (and convenience) of the same accommodation is unparalleled. There is such a variety of options as well, for the keen sailor, or for those who have never spent a night aboard a boat. There is something that can appeal to everyone at every comfort level.”

An avid traveller, Emily has explored the US and Caribbean, and parts of Europe including Switzerland, Italy, Greece, the Bahamas and Belize. “I spent a month touring through Poland in an exchange of young professionals’ program sponsored by Rotary. I also had an outstanding trip sailing through the Swedish Archipelago. I love travel, I am a voracious reader, enjoy cooking and boxing, and getting outside with my family.”

As a seasoned traveller, Emily brings a wealth of experiences to her role that fuels her dedication to creating memorable experiences for all her clients.
