A yacht may be comfortably designed and furbished, but at the end of the day it’s the operating staff who make the difference to your stay on-board, in terms of safety, care and maintenance. Our welcoming staff members are understanding, helpful and dedicated to attending your requests promptly, which is possible thanks to our superb passenger-crew rate of 16:11 (including naturalist guide). All are Ecuadorian and speak mostly Spanish, but both your naturalist guide and the barman also speak English.
Meet the members
As the highest authority on board, the captain supervises the crew and is responsible for safety on board and operational management.
Together with his first mate he forms the bridge-team that safely navigates the yacht in shifts around the archipelago. The captain also has first aid abilities and access to the board pharmacy in case of emergencies.
Our professional cook proudly treats you with one after another surprise from the galley. Healthy, exquisite and creative dishes are highly important to us.
While you are on excursion, the cook and his kitchen help prepare fresh and healthy meals, using best available ingredients.
Your welcoming barman is not only a master in preparing exotic cocktails or serving your meals, but he is also your English speaking host, who lets you feel at home and is the responsible person to guarantee your service on board. Please feel free to ask him what you need.
Together with the captain the first mate forms the bridge-team that safely navigates the yacht in shifts around the archipelago.
He also drives the inflatable dinghy (‘Zodiac’) to bring you on shore and back aboard, to keep lookout while deep-water snorkelling, or to explore the shoreline or mangles from a different perspective (and assist the naturalist guide to detect wildlife).
While you are on excursion, the housekeeper makes sure that your cabin and the social areas are cleaned spotlessly twice a day. Assisted by the sailors he attributes largely to your comfortable stay on board. Together with the other crew members the housekeeper may also take care of your luggage during transfers.
