CAPTAIN: Alexander HAILWAX
Yacht-master offshore - STCW 95 – PADI Divemaster
Languages: English, German
Alex was born in Namibia, Africa, where he spent his early years developing a love for nature; both ocean and desert life became engraved in his character. He spent many weekends exploring the Atlantic coastline on foot and became an avid fisherman by the time he was five-years-old.
The next step was to head out onto the ocean and he was fortunate enough to have a family who encouraged him to get his Hobby Cat and Laser sailing licenses before he’d even finished primary school. He completed these courses while experiencing the waters off the East coast of Africa, the Indian Ocean.
He moved to South Africa for his high school and university years where he found a passion for diving in his free time. He never faltered on his love for sailing though and enjoyed family sailing trips all over the world. By the time he left school, he’d sailed a few more seas - the Caribbean, the Pacific and the Mediterranean.
When he finished up at the University of Stellenbosch (where he learnt a lot about wine, naturally), he headed to sailing school in Cape Town and eventually made his way up to France where his yachting adventures took him on an epic journey through the Mediterranean, across the Atlantic and finally onto Brazil.
Once Alex had completed his Yacht-master, he permanently moved into the yachting industry where he worked his way up the ranks eventually making it to Captain at the age of 23. He spent 3 years moving between the Caribbean and Mediterranean seasons and
completed his Divemaster in Panama in 2016.
Alex loves cooking and is known as the “Braai (BBQ) Master” where his skills range from Argentinian tenderloin to hand-caught lobster. His German sense of humor (no laughing matter), sailing experience and humble nature all lend a hand towards a great Captain whose crew and guests alike will tell you that a trip with Alex is “absolutely the best”.
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, the last thing Marcelle ever saw herself doing was actually getting to live the dream and sail the world.
She started dancing at the age of three and immediately developed into a confident stage-presence who is always the life of the party. Hosting and entertaining come naturally to Marcelle; a look through her guest testimonials will show a mature, organized Chef and Hostess who is also able to initiate a karaoke sing-off or create an unforgettable atmosphere at an impromptu Caribbean beach party.
Marcelle’s love affair with food began early and she often reminisces about learning tricks and family secrets from her mother, an influence which is clearly visible in her repertoire.
She takes pride in not only delivering spectacular meals with interesting and varied “flavor-bombs” but also creating a special twist on every day dishes. She has been in the yachting industry for over 4 years and has made her way around the world making sure to pick up flavor combinations and recipes along the way. Tasting the influences from all over the globe, you’d think she ate her way through each of the 35+countries she has visited.
After spending time learning from an ex-yacht chef in Palma de Mallorca last year, Marcelle decided to head to Germany to learn a bit about the Bavarian cuisine. She worked in the kitchen of a reputable hotel in Munich where she was taught a variety of cooking, preparation and time management skills and gained invaluable experience.
Having spent the major part of the last 4 years extensively sailing the Caribbean Sea, she has developed an avid love for the ocean; scuba diving and snorkeling are some of Marcelle’s favorite past times and she loves taking her guests on unforgettable reef tours to discovery some of the ocean’s animal life.
STEWARDESS: Léla STUBBS
Food Hygiene Level 2
Tourist Guide in History & Culture
Léla was born in South Africa into a family of beach and water lovers, so naturally she could swim before she could walk and developed a deep love for the ocean and water sports from an early age.
A large influence on her growing up was living on a Game Reserve her mother managed for a number of years.
Being surrounded by a hospitality environment from so early on was the beginning of shaping her natural affinity for hosting unforgettable guest experiences. This was also a time that hugely cultivated her love for animals, nature and the environment.
After completing school, a temporary job in the wine industry changed the trajectory of Léla’s life and she ended up working in various capacities within the industry for a further 9 years. It was during this time that she not only developed a wonderful knowledge of wine (she even produced a few vintages), but also of hospitality.
Léla is adventurous, and eventually the need to travel was huge. She decided to make a change and she spent the next four years guiding and cooking on tours throughout
Southern Africa, earning herself a tourist guiding qualification specialising in History and Culture.
She then decided to explore further afield and find a career that would allow her to do so, while utilising her skills. She has since worked on board a luxury motor yacht for two seasons in the Mediterranean, where it became apparent that all her life’s experience had
perfectly groomed her to be a creative, meticulous and well rounded stewardess, and she is now excited to spend a third in the Caribbean. Léla is able to anticipate her guests’ every need and want with ease, and takes great pleasure in ensuring they have the time of their lives!
DECKHAND: Carina LEONE
Small Powerboat & RIB Master
Born and raised in Indiana, Carina spent her formative years bouncing between Fort Wayne, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois. It was the latter that really sparked her love for the water; every summer, the mystical pull of Lake Michigan drew her to the Indiana Dunes where she soon realized that a life on the water would be her new home.
Unfortunately, the extreme seasons of the Midwest did not lend for a life on the water and Carina decided to pursue a path geared towards law. She attended Huntington University where she acquired her Bachelor of the Arts degree, majoring in History, Political Science, and PreLaw with minors of Spanish, Psychology, and Non-Western and European History.
While the education and critical thinking skills were appreciated, life behind a desk wasn’t meant to be; Carina soon found herself missing the adventure, mystery and wonder of the ocean life.
After six months, Carina packed up her things and headed to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to begin her new journey. After nearly three years of working on private yachts ranging from 21m to 118m, she sought out a more active, spontaneous and water sports focused, charter experience.
You will now find her whizzing around on Seabobs and tenders with a huge smile on her face. She can be described as a friendly, charter-minded, water-sports loving, American.

Also a sound system onboard which guests can use to play music from their phones via an app called HEOS (perhaps something they could download and install before coming aboard).
