captain: alex mulder (uk)
Alex loves to be on the ocean and he shares his passion with anyone who sets foot on Avalon. His expertise in sailing is coupled with a detailed understanding of the Caribbean Islands and knowledge of little known beautiful spots.Crew onboard charter yacht, Avalon

Sailing is second nature to Alex. He learned to sail at the age of 6 and as a teenager he raced across the Atlantic on a 74-foot ketch. This set the course of his career (as a captain). He has sailed over 260,000 miles including 15 ocean crossings on a variety of vessels. For 12 years, Alex ran a 140' Topsail Schooner on a first class private charter.

Alex holds a MCA/RYA Master Ocean Certification (commercially endorsed) PADI Advanced Open Water Dive Certification and has extensive knowledge of not only what makes yachts run well but also what makes vacations fun with lasting lifetime memories. He is experienced, friendly, fun and committed to first class service and always "at your service". Together Alex and Carla represent over 20 years in the charter business and over 10 years in high-end culinary service. 


chef/first mate: cara mulder (ita)
Carla's culinary creations reflect her dynamic personality and joy for connecting with people. Her menu offers mouth-watering delights from around the world, prepared from fresh local products and presented with a unique flair. She skillfully pairs each plate with a wine to ensure a well-rounded dining experience.

Carla has always loved to cook, helping out in restaurants in her youth back in Italy. Her creations are part Italian home cooking and fine French dining contrasted with exotic Thai cuisine. Her passion for food led her to obtain her formal training at Ashburton Culinary College, London England. Before meeting Alex, Carla worked on a number of Super Yachts in Europe where she hosted the famous, wealthy and business elite.

Carla is a livelong learner, continuously challenging herself to broaden her spectrum of food. To this end she has expanded her scrumptious repertoire with specialist courses in Vegan food, Indian cuisine, and Kosher considerations. She thrills her guests' pallets with sophisticated nutritious foods with a unique twist creating a fusion of geography or a juxtaposition of traditional and modern.
