We are currently working for an amazing charter company but have gaps in our schedule for freelancing. We have sailed across the Pacific on our own boat on our 5 year sabbatical. We also have extensive sea miles with large vessels as well. We create the highest level of service and safety to our clients.. We both have a MCA yachtmaster 200gt that is commercially endorsed and Nia is a Licensed, award winning chef who is passionate about food and presentation. She won the USVI boat show culinary competition in 2015 and won the BVI boat show 2016 prestigious best entree' for boats over 60 feet and the best desert over 60 ft. 2016. We know what its like to own a boat, and with that experience we have a sense of ownership, maintenance, and safety to all the boats we step on board. I am extremely proficient in diesel maintenance and troubleshooting as well as rigging and splicing experience. We can provide a trove of references of very reputable people in the industry and abroad and from current employers. For US flagged boats I have my USCG 100 unlimited ticket as well. Before sending me a message please don't ask if I can dock you boat. I can dock your boat. Trust me. No insurance claims ever and especially with docking.
