Your Crew


Born and raised in Durban, on the east coast of South Africa, Grant lived around the water and mountains experiencing all aspects of the outdoors while growing up. Family vacations and weekends were spent taking part in water sports, fishing, and riding off-road motorcycles. After finishing college he started a career in sales for Land Rover & Jaguar. While the company car was a great perk, he soon realized that he longed for the outdoors.

Looking for opportunity elsewhere, he gravitated towards yachting. Having a strong background in water sports and boats he found no difficulty adapting to that new lifestyle which began in the South of France working on super yachts. He then made the move to the BVI to work on catamarans and realized that the interactions with guests and being a part of something bigger, someone’s happiness and memorable moments were really what drove him.

Outside of yachting, Grant’s other passions are kitesurfing, water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, and golf. He looks forward to sharing those activities and stories with guests.

Ulrika was born in the northern part of Finland. As a child, she would often go sailing with a family friend and was always fascinated by the sea. Every summer Ulrika spent months in the Swedish archipelago at her grandmother’s villa. Her grandmother grew everything herself: a variety of different food crops, vegetables, herbs, fruit, and berries. Her grandmother hosted countless beautiful family feasts that brought the whole family together. This experience built the foundation for Ulrika’s interest in food and cooking at a young age.

While Ulrika was in high school, she went on an exchange year in Thailand where she spent the year living with the locals and learning about the culture and the language. During her time in Thailand, she also fell in love with the local cuisine. Ulrika soon realized how much she loved traveling and exploring new places, cultures, and cuisines.

A few years later she got accepted into one of the world’s top-ranking art universities in Helsinki, Finland to study product design. During these years she would often find herself catering for events, exhibitions, and vernissages and always dreaming of and planning the next adventure. She moved to Stockholm and ended up working in tech for some years. She longed for a change and decided to pick up her sailing skills and took a sailing course in Tenerife. After rediscovering her childhood dreams of sailing and falling in love with the sea all over again she decided to take a close friend’s advice and combine her love for the sea and cooking.

Successful Trip

When the lines between family and friends are blurred-you know the trip was a success! Thank you for an amazing trip. We can't wait to come back asap!

Could Have Stayed Another Week!

The yacht was in excellent condition. The cabins were comfortable. The crew was very knowledgeable, courteous, fun to be with and provided for an unforgettable positive experience. The captain was very knowledgeable about sailing in general but also had a lot of technical knowledge to fix things that required maintenance or repair. Top team!! We would charter again, book the same Yacht again, follow the crew onto another yacht. We used the paddle boards, the floating island, the tube & wakeboard. The crew knew excellent snorkeling locations. The meals were simply the best and exceeded expectations. Could have stayed for another week!

Utmost Thanks

Thank you so much for the most amazing week. Our family, spanning grandparents, kids, grandkids, and of course in-laws had the greatest time. Your knowledge of everything - from the local seas, to the cooking capabilities, to our family's varying preferences on everything - made it an especially remarkable experience. We had the greatest time, all because of you two. We will share below some thoughts from our own children/grandchildren, to whom you were particularly amazing. With the utmost thanks and highest recommendation.

“Dreamy Week”

Our family had a dreamy week on the crew were the most wonderful hosts, catering to our every need in the most comfortable, gracious manner. The boat accommodated us all so comfortably and was perfectly appointed so that we could take full advantage of relaxing among the natural beauty around us. We were so well taken care of from start to finish, from our fabulous itinerary, our sails, our excursions, and the amazing food and drinks, it was a week we will never forget. We are already thinking of when we get back on board!"

Wonderful Trip!

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip. It was a delightful experience, being your guests, and even more delightful having Alan and I aboard in great company. Highlights include many braids, a puffer fish, schools of fish, some bright purple coral, and the smell of maple butter pancakes via a candle, the white beaches and Foxy‘s! We will certainly be back for more!
