Ryan, a South African, has been chartering in the BVI and throughout the Caribbean for more than 8 years. He holds an RYA Yachtmaster Offshore captain's license. A conscientious and professional individual with extensive experience in boat management, maintenance, and captaining vessels. Well organized and hard working with a great focus on teamwork and unity in the workplace. Looking to work long-term on a private vessel to create a unique experience for owner, family, and guests.
Jessica, and American, is also an RYA Yachtmaster that has been chartering in the BVI for more than 5 years. Before that she sailed in French Polynesia for a couple seasons. I have been working as a very successful Mate/Chef for busy Caribbean based charter company and yacht Owners for several years. I have become a very flexible team member working jointly with other crew on every aspect of running a yacht and guest services.
I am passionate about cooking and enjoy working with the freshest ingredients to prepare simple straight-forward dishes that showcase the ingredients and flavors. I was fortunate enough to be trained by the Head Chef for the Trade Winds Charter Company, which rounded out my skills, and prepared me for handling diverse tastes and diets for a busy charter program. Through good communication with the guest I always strive to create menus that are well received by all guests.
I am a fun and energetic person with a positive outlook on life and a willingness to always strive to deliver great experiences, succeed, and constantly looking for ways to improve.
5 guest queen staterooms with private ensuite baths with dry shower stalls and electric heads. Four queen berths and one cabin with two singles berths which can convert to a queen. This yacht is NOT legal for more than 10 pax charters.

This was the most amazing trip ever. The crew made all attempts to make this an amazing adventure. Nothing was to much trouble for Captain Nicolai, Captain Oliver, First mate Gemma and Chef Roma. We were a group of 10 and we all had the same opinion. Our travel to the different ports were very interesting and enjoyable. The meals were so delicious. Chef Roma went above and beyond to prepare the meals. I can’t say enough about this wonderful trip.
