Stefan and Chloe have lived, cruised and worked together for over 10 years. They have sailed over 45,000 nm between them (including the Pacific, Indian Ocean, Red Sea and Mediterranean) on their own yacht and have hosted charters on 43-50ft monohulls and catamarans in the Caribbean and Latin America.

Stefan was born in Berlin, Germany, and developed a love of the wind and sea as a teenager, sailing his first dingy at the age of 16. He got his masters in Mechanical Engineering and has worked for Daimler-Benz, Procter & Gamble, GM and Connex; which led him to a career in managing specialist multimillion dollar engineering projects in Australia - the only piece of land he considers home. Captain and chef aboard crewed charter yacht, PearlHis first love was always the ocean, however, so he decided to return to Europe the slow way; on his own yacht over the Pacific Ocean, getting as far as Bali before meeting Chloe, which changed his life's path forever.

Stefan continued sailing with Chloe over the Indian Ocean, Red Sea and the Mediterranean to the Canary Islands, where he decided it was time for a new project so started designing and building luxurious houseboats in Berlin. He loved the business but missed the ocean, so 13 houseboats later, Chloe and Stefan bought yet another sailing yacht to cruise the Caribbean.

In his free time, Stefan is a bit of a merman: spear fisher, free diver, kite surfer, surfer, windsurfer... and guitarist.

Chloe was born in London, England and had a professional career in project management before developing an aversion to chairs and retrained to become a teacher, working for various charities and universities. Her passion in education and anthropology led her to Bali in 2007, where she met Stefan and initially came aboard his yacht as crew... after 10 years and 18,000nm together, she has finally been promoted to first mate.

Chloe's extensive travels have inspired her international cuisine, which favours fresh, healthy, rainbow-colored and seriously flavorful recipes. Italian, Spanish and Greek food is at the forefront of her culinary repertoire, as well as more exotic influences from South East Asia, India and Morocco.

Chloe's lifetime dedication to yoga practice has led her to getting certified in teaching Ashtanga yoga. In her free time she can be found practicing yoga, playing the guitar, island-hopping on the SUP or freediving.
