Having lived on the coast all his life it seemed only natural that Dom followed his passion for the ocean and, after extensive experience crewing on a variety of different sized vessels, has a vast knowledge of the different roles onboard. Dom is an accomplished, hard working Skipper dedicated to providing the highest level of safety and service to any guests. He is a qualified lifeguard, jet ski instructor, and worked several seasons on Mediterranean based vessels. He has also completed several Atlantic crossings and more recently has been based in Florida, the Caribbean and Bahamas.
Dominic has a sly sense of humor and although English is his first language, his command of German has proved very useful at times. He’s also a keen athlete and tennis coach when the opportunity arises.
Chef/Mate: Hannah (South Africa)
Growing up in Cape Town, Hannah has also been around water all her life. She’s always swum competitively and was an accomplished dingy sailor throughout her teens. After leaving school and travelling extensively, Han found herself drawn to follow her love of cooking and all things culinary and put herself through culinary training to obtain her Diploma in Patisserie and Culinary Arts. She worked at some of Cape Town’s premier restaurants and wine estates whilst studying. She is also a talented photographer and her positive outlook on life and strong work ethic makes her a great asset on any boat.
Together Dom and Han are a formidable team whose combined experience, ability and attention to detail will ensure guests have a warm and memorable stay on board MUCHO GUSTO!
