Gio is a highly experienced Captain who finds his fulfilment from connecting people with the sea and enjoying their experiences vicariously through them. Born and raised in London, his career began at young age teaching sailing and windsurfing at home and in Greece. A before moving to Australia to study for a degree in marine biology, conduct underwater acoustic research and guide marine wildlife tours. Eventually he bought his own 50ft sailboat and used it to lead documentary filmmaking expeditions thousands of miles around the Caribbean, resulting in work published by National Geographic.

A traditionally trained chef with 16 years culinary experience, Ryan has followed his larger than life passion for cooking exquisite food for over half his life. He has frequently been headhunted to create diverse menus in the fine-dining restaurant industry before winning an international cooking competition three years ago that put him onto the worlds largest superyachts. We stole him away for a new chapter in his career to chef on smaller boats like Lolalita where he enjoys a more personal and interactive experience with the guests, teasing them with flavours throughout each day. He has an excellent knowledge of many styles of cuisine from Asian to Mediterranean and good old BBQ and takes pride in sourcing the finest ingredients around.
A South Florida girl passionate about the sunshine, Raven spent most of her previous life working for an iconic hotel and tiki bar on Hollywood beach, mixing drinks and looking after hotel guests. As a long term member of the team she understood the importance of maintaining a reputation for outstanding service and hospitality, bringing in a crowd of regulars who could always feel at home under her care. She recently moved into the yachting industry to explore beyond the horizon while using her eye for detail to maintain a first class hotel environment onboard and making sure her guests always feel pampered and well looked after. She’s also out on deck, pulling lines and driving the tender, making sure the adventure is always flowing.

Gio and Renee,
Thank you so much for an amazing week. I know I speak for the entire family when I tell you we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Your sense of adventure and attention to the kids was as much a part of the trip as the boat herself. Everything was fantastic!!
Thank you for the wonderful slideshow and please forward along any additional pics you might have.
I have CC'd Sue and the girls on this and we look forward to staying in touch with you both. Good luck to you both and we wish you calm seas ahead. I hope our paths cross again soon.

We had a fantastic time on Lolalita!
The crew accommodated all of our needs and desires in order to make this trip unforgettable, especially for the kids. We threw a big birthday bash for our V.I.P. family member (stuffed animal Beaver) that included a customized, homemade beaver cake from the chef, streamers, and even fun hats! For Easter, first mate Renee created an easter egg treasure hunt that had everyone, even the adults, laughing and exploring. Each place that Captain Gio took us to was even more beautiful than the last. In the end the only issue was that we didn’t have enough time - so the crew let us extend our trip by 24 hours just to squeeze in even more fun and relaxation.
Thank you, Lola! - Jason
