CAPTAIN DIEGO VILAR
Diego was born in Montevideo, Uruguay. He moved with his family to Sydney, Australia as a youngster. He attended school in Sydney and opened his own business following graduation. His business success in Australia continued in the USA. After many lucrative years behind a desk, his adventurous spirit got the best of him. He folded away his suit and tie, packed a bag, and embarked on a journey around the world. His travels over oceans and across continents has taken 13 years, so far. In addition to his native Spanish and English, he has mastered enough Italian and German to enthusiastically converse in those languages as well.
Diego’s love of the ocean goes back to his days growing up in Sydney, Australia, where he bought his first boat at the age of 23. Even before sailing thousands of miles, he was captivated by the ocean, sailing, diving and exploring. He has sailed all over the world, from Greece to Florida and Mexico through the Panama Canal. But, when he sailed into the Virgin Islands, he felt he'd come ashore in paradise. Enchanted by the Caribbean, Diego is happy to take a hiatus from his travels. He is also very pleased to have a dream job as Captain aboard beautiful, sailing yacht ODYSSEUS.
Diego has been PADI certified since 1994 and is a Dive Master. His knowledge of the world, the ocean and marine life is extensive. Guests who are interested will discover a patient instructor and eloquent raconteur. He knows great places to enjoy above and beneath the sea. He fills each, individual itinerary with highlights; expansive beaches, stunning reefs, cool beach bars, or just places to pull up a hammock between two coco palms and chill. He looks forward to sharing his favorite experiences with his guests, and igniting within them the same passion he feels for the sea.

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
