Captain Sarah was born in Seattle, Washington and moved to the U.K at an early age where she grew up in Cambridge, England. Her love of architecture and history took her down the path of academic study and she earned a double bachelors in Real Estate & International Business Management, followed by a Masters degree in Urban Planning. In her early 20s she pursued a career in property development in Central London where she worked on large property development projects, with her speciality being in Master Planning large urban spaces.
Captain Sarah switched out the hard hat and steel toe cap boots for her snorkel and sailing gear in 2017 following an extended period traveling across Europe. Captain Sarah found an irrefutable passion for the Ocean during her time in Italy aboard a classic 27ft monohull. Her passion for sailing and the simplicity associated with an ocean based lifestyle was so great that she immediately began a 4 month intensive Yacht Masters Captain License in the Isle of Wight, U.K, one of the most difficult sailing areas in the World.
Following her training, Captain Sarah worked in a variety of positions aboard yachts, from Flotilla Captain on smaller monohull sailing yachts, to deck hand on 300+ft super yachts. Captain Sarah has most recently spent two years as Chef/First Mate aboard a 56ft catamaran in the US Virgin Islands. The variety of roles aboard many styles of yacht had given her the ability to excel in all areas of the yachting industry. Captain Sarah has worked on some of the biggest and most impressive super yachts in the world and has worked and travelled across three of the four continents.
Chef Malikée is a French Canadian from the multicultural city of Montreal, Canada. Her middle eastern heritage introduced her from a young age to a world of aromatic flavours, herbs and spices. She started cooking side by side with her mother early on and she quickly put her in charge of the spices aka “spice girl”. Malikée always had an interest in the art of beauty, which is why she obtained a college degree in Fine Arts and a university degree in Fine Arts and Communications Public Relations.
Right out of school, she felt like she was missing out on life and all the excitement and adventures it had to offer. One thing remained certain; she always felt at ease by the ocean, it brought her peace and happiness. Which is why instead of following a conventional trajectory, she chose to be a free spirit and create her own path, preferably near a source of water.
Malikée embarked on a journey of travelling, discovery, learning about different cultures and local foods. She lived on the beautiful island of Roatan, Honduras for 6 months and learned how to scuba dive and became a rescue diver. She has been fascinated with life underwater ever since and it made her more conscious about eating in a sustainable way. To support this lifestyle, Malikée worked for over a decade in hospitality, foodservice and beverages, sometimes as a waitress and bartender. She loves to create a memorable experience for her clients so it was only natural for it to translate, in due time, into the kitchen. All her different experiences, travels and work in the industry allowed her
to become a well rounded, self-taught home chef. Eager to please the pallet, her creativity comes in handy when it is time to elaborate on different textures and flavours.
In her free time, she also finds great enjoyment in pilates, painting and sculpting. She even had a little exhibition and jumped on the opportunity to do her coming out as an Artist to the world. Looking to the future, Malikée plans to attend the Italian Culinary Institute in Calabria, Italy; what better location to perfect her love for food and fine wines?
Captain Sarah and Chef Malikée have been close friends for years and make an incredibly dynamic and professional team with few limits. “We have the ability to relate to and connect with our guests in a genuine, friendly and fun-filled way that people love.
