Crew profile

Captain: Dwayne Daniel (St Vincent)
Chef: Olga Dibrova (Ukraine)

Captain: Dwayne Daniel
Dwayne was born and raised in the volcanic windward islands of St. Vincent & the Grenadines and from a young age, the sea has always been an enormous interest for him. Fishing, snorkeling, and water sports are just a few of the many exciting activities that drew him to the sea.

He started as a voluntary maintenance dockhand at a local ASA school in St. Vincent, and then humbly pursued his yachting career step by step. He gained most of his experience through deliveries of various yachts throughout the Caribbean, with a few transatlantic crossings to the Mediterranean. That led to cruising in some of the most exclusive places in the Mediterranean, including the south of France, Spain, Italy, Sardinia, Corsica and the Adriatic waters of Montenegro and Croatia.

Dwayne’s passion for the sea, sailing and yachts goes very deep and is a large part of who he his. He enjoys sharing this passion with charter guests and those with similar interests. Fishing is one of his most exciting hobbies onboard. Early morning sunrise and sunset trawling have a therapeutic effect on his soul! There is nothing better than enjoying a fresh catch.

When not sailing, he enjoys the outdoors as much as possible indulging in breathtaking hikes, bird watching, cycling and farming. Farming has always been the backbone of his family, so the planting and harvesting of fresh fruits and food crops can also be considered another huge part of his life.

Chef: Olga Dibrova
Olga grew in Odessa, a beautiful Ukrainian city near the Black Sea. From the beginning, it was Olga’s dream to travel the world. She loves the opportunity to work with people and started as a crew agent, but the sea, traveling and boat life remained her passion.¬†This dream became a reality when she landed her first job onboard a motor yacht as a Stewardess, cruising the Mediterranean and Caribbean sea. Olga’s passion for cooking and traveling became a wonderful mix of dreams and reality.

She enjoys exploring her surroundings, experiencing different meals and learning new cultures. This allows her to add meals to her menu that are inspired by her creativity both in presentation and flavor.
