Kerry comes from a long history in hospitality commencing many years ago as an airline
stewardess with an Australian carrier which led onto a position in Italy with Air Italia. Kerry has worked as a tour guide throughout Europe managing and co-coordinating up to 55 guests at one time. Kerry then took on the role of Food & Beverage Manager at a large Australian resort before opening ‘Primo E Secondo’ – a fine dining Italian restaurant with
her husband Robi in Noosa, Australia.
Kerry and Robi successfully ran their restaurant for 8 years before they received an offer too good to refuse and sold the business as a successful ongoing concept. In 2008 Kerry worked on DEBRA ONE, a 74ft Ferretti as sole stewardess and cook. This was a very
demanding role but nothing Kerry couldn’t handle. Kerry was one of the first crew ever onboard ANNABEL II when she was first launched in 2009. She has since worked aboard both private and charter yachts, ranging up to 32 metres and cruising globally.

Just wanted to personally write and thank you for an extraordinary week. Every aspect of the week on the boat with you and your crew was nothing but amazing. One couldn’t even start to outline every aspect of perfection and professionalism you all showed, from the precision planning, wonderful food and the genuine care in ensuring we were all looked after every minute of every day.
I’m afraid you may have set the bar to high for all and our expectations have now been set for any future charter we may go on. Please pass on our upmost gratitude and thanks to Jack, Sammy and Becky

The experience with Annabel II was wonderful! Most important of all, the crew was fantastic: Andrew a gentleman and very professional, Sam a great chef, and Jack and Beckie making sure we were very well treated all the time.
The locations were beautiful, very well chosen by Andrew.
Annabell II is a great yacht, the whole family enjoyed it a lot.
We are looking forward to repeating this experience!
Charter on ANNABEL in Montenegro / Croatia, Jun 15
I have nothing but great things to say about our charter. Our crew displayed an impressive level of professional experience. The crew went to great measures to ensure that we were enjoying ourselves at all times. We were able to make it to several lively clubs. Which were exactly what we were hoping for. Sammy has an amazing talent and ensured we were well feed at all times. I had no desire to eat anywhere but the boat. Cheers.
