MA HA Crew Profile
Harvey Rogers, born in 1973, from Gloucestershire, England, has been a keen seaman from a young age. After achieving a bachelor degree in marketing Harvey managed restaurants, food export, and was an area manager in the retail sector before leaving the UK to follow a passion for the ocean. Teaching diving, power boating and sailing led Harvey through Thailand, Egypt, The Maldives and Bermuda to the Caribbean where he has a lot of experience sailing and motoring throughout the Caribbean chain, and particularly The British Virgin Islands, which he and Cara now call home. Harvey is a certified RYA Ocean Yachtmaster for sail and power (offshore). His dry British humour and one liners are always a great hit with guests, and the stories he tells about the islands and adventures at sea bring his previous guests back time and again.
Cara Rogers, completed a Performing Arts Degree in London, followed by an English teaching qualification in Egypt. She left England for sunnier surroundings and pursued a career in diving in Thailand where she met Harvey. Following a diving path from Thailand through Bermuda to The British Virgin Islands, Cara finally settled into a culinary career, training at the Ashburton School of Cookery and the prestigious Ritz Hotel in Paris.
Her passion for originality, combined with French training, produces astounding culinary masterpieces. The smile on her face just tells you that whatever cuisine reaches your plate will be awesome, and coupled with various wines the combinations are out of this world. Vacationers are always delighted with the exceptional quality of the cuisine available on board the catamaran Ma Ha. This award winning chef will cater to any special requests or dietary requirements and will even create an exciting menu for children. A fine wine goes hand in hand with fine food and Ma Ha carries an excellent selection of house wines and will happily source any special requests.
Harvey's calm and competent attitude makes for very relaxed sailing, and he is complimented perfectly by Cara's overt and gregarious nature. Harvey and Cara's years of experience in providing superb customer service ensure unforgettable memories, and a truly exceptional Caribbean yacht charter experience.

MA HA Testimonials
We found the Maha in excellent condition with a very knowledgeable and approachable crew. Elsa was delightful, friendly and an excellent Chef and handled her assigned tasks around the boat in a very professional manner for someone with so little time afloat. Andrew was a constant source of info and very patient about answering our question about sailing and the local area. He also spent quite a bit of time ashore with us acting as a guide and pointing out details we would have missed if left on or own. The only black mark on the trip was the one night stay at the hotel at the end of our cruise. That location you recommended was substandard in just about every category. I would recommend highly that you remove them from any list you might provide your customers in the future. We did relocate to the Marriot's Frenchmans Reef which was also excellent and I'm sure more to a charter customers standard.
All in all a very enjoyable vacation and from what I hear from the family we'll be going again.
Was the crew Friendly and Accommodating?
Our crew felt more like family than “crew”. They were welcoming, warm, courteous, and always very helpful.
Elsa made the most amazing food, and Andrew knows that boat like the back of his hand (he also makes one amazing Painkiller)
Was MaHa comfortable and clean?
It was always clean, and very comfortable. The beds were exceptionally cozy! There were plenty of places to throw a pillow and nap, or cuddle up and watch a movie at night.
Was MaHa well ventilated?
We were never too hot, of course we were happy to be in 85 degrees as opposed to back home a chilly 5 degrees. I left my hatch open one night and woke up to raindrops…figured out moving forward to just turn the air on at bedtime J
How was the food and presentation?
The food was always different and always perfectly portioned. We were never hungry! We had Sushi, South African desserts, cheese platters, and many more delicious things. I think I gained a few pounds actually. Breakfast was my favorite. To wake up to a fresh pot of coffee, homemade pancakes with bacon, and fresh fruit…outstanding!
Did you like the sailing areas?
Andrew did a great job keeping us busy and showing us things that most people don’t know about. The sailing was superb! We have so many gorgeous photos of the boat, crew, and islands. I will forward some when I get a chance to take them off my camera.
Is there anything else I could of done to help prepare for your charter?
The only thing I would recommend is if people are staying over the night before or the night after their charter (in St Thomas) send them to The Marriot at Frenchman’s Cove. It was the perfect ending to our perfect charter vacation. Really excellent food, service, and the view wasn’t bad either.
Please write additional comments…
We will truly miss Elsa and Andrew. In fact, we have already said that we’ll be back and when we plan that vacation we’re hoping to get them back as our crew. They were just so perfect in every possible way.

"The boat is kept in pristine condition. Everything is first class"
"The boat was always immaculate. The bedrooms and bathrooms were cleaned daily. Fresh linens and towels were provided throughout the week. The main cabin area was spotless."
"We all got along famously with Andy. At our request, he played with us all day and even participated in board, card and dice games in the evenings."
"Wach and every meal was a perfect dining experience. Tash was so wonderful! She learned our likes and dislikes from day 1. The meals all looked and tasted like they came out of a gourmet chef's kitchen."
"The meals were outstanding. We couldn't have asked for better."
"The boat was everything we'd hoped for and more. It was like staying in a luxury hotel on the water. The interior of the boat was appointed with everything from high thread count sheets and fluffy towels to beautiful suede upholstery."
The Canfield Family, Florida, USA – late March, 2013
"BEST ever, it was above and beyond what we expected"
"Capt. Andy and Natasha were great. They knew our names, what we liked to eat. Had a safety meeting as soon as we got on board and set our minds at ease right from the start. We were a little leary booking since they were so young but boy are we glad we did. Fresh towels and linens mid week, and both were a fountain of knowledge."
"Every morning Andy asked what we felt like doing, bars and excitement, or quiet and chill. Guys fished and snorkeled everyday. He did whatever we were in the mood for."
"We would definitely charter the MA HA again. Main reason was the crew, they made the difference. We watched the hockey game one night on the yacht. The went above and beyond our expectations. Very, Very happy with our choice."
"They had everything on our preference sheets, right down to the brand of wine we had with dinner each night. We were all boaters so we had a blast."
Karen Wessel, Pennsylvania, USA – late January, 2013
"More relaxing than I could have imagined."
"Loved it - Had a great time!"
"Captain Andy was very knowledgeable about what islands we were stopping at, he was just a great captain and very helpful. The crew made the most delicious meals and just a sweetheart and very helpful and attentive to everyones different needs."
"Unbelievable meals – had more than enough to eat and with the picky eaters we had never a problem for her. They exceeding our expectations."
Guests aboard Ma Ha for Christmas week, 2011.
What an incredible “once in a lifetime” Christmas/New Year experience we had! My family and I would 1000% recommend Andrew and Jennifer to anyone looking for a wonderfully personalized charter experience. They were both knowledgeable, professional and fun to be with. They worked together like a well oiled machine which made life very easy and comfortable on the boat. It is unusual that each of my four children had only positive comments about both of them! We really enjoyed their company.
When we arrived, Andrew and Jennifer were there to greet us with open arms and smiles. The Ma Ha was beautiful, comfortable and immaculately kept throughout the charter.
The meals were so delicious. Jennifer is an excellent chef and each meal surpassed our expectations. She really labored over presentation and making sure that all of our food requests were met. My kids are still talking about the Thai lunch we had. We may have to call her for the recipe! There was never a meal that we did not enjoy.
Andrew was very accommodating with any request we may have had. When my one son was sick, he readily took my younger son tubing for the afternoon. He has a lovely disposition and was friendly and wonderful with the kids. Both Andrew and Jennifer were awesome about getting us great reservations for New Year’s Eve. We shared dinner with them on shore and we rang in the New Year with our new friends!
From the immediate attention from >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> to the friendly phone call from Jen about last minute food needs right before the trip, to the impeccable service and treatment from Andrew and Jennifer, our trip was the perfect family vacation.
I would recommend Andrew and Jennifer, the crew of the Ma Ha to anyone who will listen! I hope to book another charter next year with them!!
