Andrew Kaiser CAPTAIN
Andrew is a native Texan who developed a passion for sailing as a young boy, purchasing his first boat at the age of 13. While studying at the University of Texas, he cultivated this passion by sailing his own boat and being active in several university sailing organizations. After university, Andrew chose to pursue sailing professionally and has worked as Captain, Mate and/or Engineer aboard several different sailing vessels. These vessels have included traditional square-rigged ships to modern super yachts along the New England coast, the Caribbean, the Great Lakes, the Mediterranean, and the North Sea.
Prior to coming aboard Marae, Andrew served as the captain of an English yacht for three years. In this time he sailed to 22 countries, logging approximately 50,000 miles. He has earned and currently holds a US Coast Guard 200 GT near-coastal license, a Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster Oceans of 200 GT, as well as a selection of auxiliary qualifications. Andrew enjoys an active lifestyle, and when he is not sailing, he enjoys scuba diving, motorcycle riding and hiking.

After graduation, she took her first professional sailing position as mate/ cook aboard a 74 foot, square rigged vessel. She then served aboard a 124 foot sailing ketch as Chief Stewardess, sailing between New England, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
Most recently, Arwyn has spent 3 years aboard an English yacht as the chef, where she has enjoyed exploring local ingredients and absorbing new culinary styles in the different countries she visited. Having the gift of hospitality, Arwyn is committed to perfecting her culinary talent. She has studied formally at the Ashburton School of Cookery in England, and has consistently impressed guests aboard. In her spare time, Arwyn enjoys diving, hiking and traveling.
Susie Weaver FIRST MATE

Susie spent the majority of her childhood holidays sailing around the Caribbean and South Pacific visiting French Polynesia, The Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and the Solomon Islands on her father’s ketch, experiencing at a young age what the world has to offer.
After spending over a year in the yachting industry as a mate/engineer, she enrolled at the International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, RI studying marine systems to further her knowledge in marine engineering.
