Paul has had a love for life on the water since a very young age – sailing, surfing, free diving and competitive kite boarding. Being near or on the water has always been of great importance to him.

In 2016, Paul moved to the Virgin Islands to work as a full time captain aboard SV Pelican, a 58 foot catamaran, offering all inclusive dive sailing charters in the USVI and BVI. Having the Caribbean right off the back deck made for the chance to learn many of the locations for free diving, kiteboarding, hiking and all the fun activities that make a sailing trip a great adventure. Returning to the Mediterranean every summer Paul continues to grow his local knowledge of each location with a focus on Greece and Italy. His passion for the sailing life style and the ocean is infectious and he brings both excitement and experience to every charter.

Chef Christina M. Astuto - Starting November 1st, 2021

QUALIFICATION
● STCW 95/10, Basic Safety Training
● Food and Hygiene Level II
● First Aid/CPR
● TABC Certification

A true New Yorker born and raised in Staten Island from two parents who grew up in Brooklyn, Christina prides herself on her personality and respectful family values. She believes this is what has shaped her personality which has been the foundation for her life. As an Italian American, food has always been an important part of her life. She believes there is no better way to spread love than with a home cooked meal, some great wine, and really good company.

After graduating with a Masters Degree in Special Education, Christina worked as a preschool teacher in the greater New York area for over 5 years. It wasn’t until she took a trip to South Africa to teach English did she realize that her passion for travel, culture, and exploration exceeded her expectations. It was then that she realized she was settling for a comfortable life which she was good at, but ultimately it did not feed her soul. Unexpected events, call it serendipitous or not, have brought her to the sea and she could not have been more grateful. Prior to her 3 seasons in the Virgin Islands, she has worked two and a half seasons as a chef & hostess in destinations such as Greece, Croatia, Sardinia, and Montenegro. She has worked on a variety of different sailboats which allowed her to really grow her passion for sailing.

As a chef Christina likes to keep her meals as healthy and tasty as possible. To her, flavor is most important and shouldn’t be compromised. Christina likes to cook with the best local ingredients she can find, and believes freshness is key. Her cuisine is very eclectic and she uses a variety of flavors, spices, and herbs. Although she does like to treat people with her Italian specialities, from time to time! Christina believes people should have a cultural culinary experience when they are eating. She wants you to remember your sailing experience from that moment you see the breathtaking morning sunrise over the horizon to the smell of roasted chicken coming fresh out of the boat’s oven. She truly believes that sailing is an experience for your senses and she’s fully on board to give the best experience she possibly can.

Crew:
Mario & Karine 

How would you qualify skipper:
Attention to detail first class. Sailed every day, from island to island, at the request of my husband. Mario even allowed our daughter to sail, steer, much to my horror, she is directionally challenged at the best of times! The part of the trip for Richard was being Mario's sailing help! Mario's knowledge of the islands, activities, flexibility to cater to our individuals needs, made this an unforgettable vacation. He is a master yachtsman, he is funny, smart, patient, a perfectionist about his boat and anything he does! There was nothing that was too hard, too annoying, too untimely, for Mario. We always felt safe and confident under his watchful eyes.

How would you qualify rest of the crew:
Karine is one of a kind! Fantastic hostess, first class chef, attention to detail in the cabins, the living areas and covered flybridge on Playtime. She planned, cooked and presented scrumptious meals which we can only describe as unmatched and unsurpassed. Cannot wait to sail with them again!

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc):
First class catamaran! In excellent condition, pristine!! Both Karine and Mario work tirelessly to maintain Playtime in top notch condition. They are perfectionists. We are not talking Aveeno products here, but Molton Brown! We had a fantastic holiday in an ultra luxury, beautiful, catamaran! This yacht is loaded with all the extras!


How would you qualify the itinerary:
Mario and Karine worked with us to accommodate our daily wishes and whims, whether it involved where we wanted to explore, sail, fish, snorkel, scuba, visit or swim. Some days we left it up to Mario's expert advice, and loved whatever activity they planned for us! We covered every island we wanted to visit or see!

How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/equipment on board:
Totally adequate and first class equipment and gear! We purposefully chose a boat without scuba equipment, as we knew Mario would accommodate destination scuba wants. Loved the new paddles boards and the two seater canoe. All the snorkel gear was in great shape! Perfectly adequate and fit all of our individual needs.

How would you qualify the food and drinks:
One word - PERFECT! Karine went to great lengths to accommodate our EVERY food and beverage request! We got MUCH MORE than we expected or could have imagined! We started a picture and food diary from day one which we shared on social media. The food and its presentation - five star! Loved Karine's hand made 5 course sushi dinner, which she kindly allowed Stephanie to help her with! We looked forward to Mario's Painkillers every day! We still miss Karine's food!

How would you qualify the entire experience of your trip:
This was the most fantastic experience and holiday we have ever experienced, and we have traveled extensively as a family! We will stay in contact with Mario and Karine, we were in tears upon our goodbyes. Playtime, Mario and Karine, we will be back! Once you have experienced this first class catamaran, this fantastic crew, you will understand why Playtime accommodates only 6 guests! The commitment and level of service provided by Mario and Karine is such that they wouldn't dream of compromising their standards of excellence to accommodate more than 6 guests on any of their charters!!
