Hi there! My name is Helen and I'm from Wellington, New Zealand. I've been a professional chef for over a decade, with most of my career spent working on super yachts and travelling throughout the beautiful Mediterranean. My love of food knows no bounds and I'm always excited to try new dishes and experiment with different flavour combinations. In addition to my passion for cooking, I'm also deeply committed to environmental causes and love spending my free time outdoors, whether it's hiking through beautiful landscapes or diving into the ocean to explore its depths.
Hi there! My name is Hannah and I’m from Auckland, New Zealand. Food has always been one of my biggest loves and passions in life. My chef career begun when I started to travel and explore the world. I began to grow my repertoire, and study different cuisines throughout my travels. I cook with the idea of food bringing people together, to celebrate, to interact, and to nourish themselves. Fresh, vibrant and colourful salads, with healthy proteins and carbohydrates is the ideal spread for me. Food possibilities are endless, and I enjoy talking with people about what they would like to eat each day.

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.
