CAPTAIN Luc Heymans
Belgium :: languages fluent English, French and Dutch.
With over 15 years of ocean racing under his belt, Luc has participated in several Round the World Races and Inshore World Championships in the USA, UK, France and Italy, in the eighties and nineties.
He has strong skills in yacht management and implementation of projects such as refits, diving and research.

CHEF Daniel Moumou
Seychelles :: languages Creole, French, English, some Italian and German.
After completing his education at the Seychelles Cooking School, Daniel worked at various resorts and hotels in the Seychelles. At the newly opened 5-star Lemuria Resort and Golf Course on Praslin Island, he worked his way up from Commis Chef to Chef de Partie, specialising in Italian and
Mediterranean cuisine. After two years, he moved on to a position as Sous Chef on the exclusive Desroches Island and stayed for 6 years.
Daniel wanted to try something new and found just what he liked: work as Chef with Dream Yacht Charters. Stints as varied as Chef on oil tankers and boutique-sized Silhouette Cruises in the Seychelles, preceded a return to free-lance work on various catamarans and superyachts.
He has been Chef on LONESTAR since 2015 and delights the owner's family and charter guests alike with fabulous Creole, Mediterranean, Asian and international cuisine.
In short: Daniel is flexible and is not afraid to make changes in the menu at last minute, for example to prepare their fresh catch of the day. Daniel's humour and upbeat personality complement his cooking skills. He is also a sailing-savvy First Mate and likes singing, sports and hiking.

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.
