Your Crew

CAPTAIN MARK & CHEF STEPHANIE

Having been born in Cape Town, Mark moved to New Zealand in the early 90s where he has been heavily involved in the local yachting community on various racing yachts. Thus, he can learn all the fundamentals of driving high-performance boats.

Feeling the need for a change in direction, Mark sailed from Cape Town to the British Virgin Islands 3 years ago. Soon he fell in love with the charter industry where he has been able to transfer that love of boats and the ocean into an exciting career and adventure.
In his downtime you may still find him on the water fishing or diving, but if not he’s bound to be in the snow or behind a good book. You can expect the very best experience with Mark on Zingara for a safe and exciting once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Stephanie was born in the south of France and always loved the sea from a young age, she taught herself how to swim at the age of five.
Her free spirit took her on a never-ending journey around the world tour as soon as she finished school and culinary studies, and she used her skills to work at the same time. Hence, her cuisine is influenced by many flavors of the world. She studied culinary arts in France and really started to love it and dived into it with the New World cuisine, such as Australia and New Zealand. She has discovered new technics and was excited about the variety of products in those different parts of the world.
Once confident enough with her skills, she decided to go and try herself at sea and very naturally ended up working on yachts.
A few years ago she took a break and bought a house in Greece and adopted two cats. She really missed the Caribbean and when the opportunity presented itself on Zingara, she couldn’t wait to get back on the ocean. During her free time, she likes to do yoga, and long walks in nature and is enjoying the challenge of learning to free dive. She also enjoys a good dinner with wine and company and exploring local flavors wherever that may be.
She is happy to cater to your needs and different diets, using all the local and seasonal products that the BVI offers.

DECKHAND & DIVE INSTRUCTOR JAMES

Originating from the south coast of England, James has never been too far from the ocean. After being taught how to scuba dive by his father and gaining an overwhelming urge to see the world, James traveled to Thailand to become a scuba instructor where he would spend the next 5 years mastering his craft.
To gain a better understanding of the diving industry, he then moved to places such as the Cayman Islands, Barbados, Bahamas, and Mexico where he would gain much experience and simultaneously, realize a love for the Caribbean as well as, discover a real sense of adventure that would be working on boats. James has set a goal of becoming a captain and one day owning his own boat.

STEWARDESS & DIVE INSTRUCTOR ERIN

Erin was born in Mexico City and moved to Europe when she was 13. She obtained a degree in Hospitality and Business Management in Valencia, Spain. After spending a few years working in the hospitality industry, she embarked on a journey to Japan to spend a year in a silent Buddhist monastery where she learned to connect with nature which in turn, helped her decide on her next venture: moving to Thailand and starting a career in the scuba diving industry. Once she became an instructor she worked in different countries sharing her love for the ocean. She is now combining her two passions while working in the yacht industry and being a part of Zingara’s crew.

Ages 11 To 54 All Had A Great Time

What a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday our family of 10 had!! We can’t thank you three enough…from age 11 to 54 all had a great time. The three of you are fun, professional, patient and attentive. We have chartered for 10 years and, personally, this year’s trip was by far my favorite. I will forever hold memories made!

Fabulous Trip!

We had a fabulous trip. It was truly amazing! Crew was great. The captain picked up on our sarcasm pretty quickly and joined right in with us. It was fun with him being our same age.  He was always helping the crew with whatever. Often times a hard worker in the kitchen too, was very quiet and soft spoken and often we had to tell her to smile but she was super sweet and obviously young so I can see how we were a bit intimidating. She would open up in more one on one type situations. She is a very hard worker! The stewardess was great. So funny and joked with us and always there to help and get us whatever we needed. She fit right in perfectly. The chef was amazing. Food was incredible. He said we were his fav group thus far bc we weren’t picky and we let him do his thing and finished our plates, lol! I was shocked how much time they spend in the kitchen. We enjoyed the times he could hang with us.  Overall they were amazing constantly serving our needs. We ended the trip with the crew joining us for dessert and we all shared our favorite things from the week and it was really neat with crew sharing their thoughts too. We pretty much left the entire itinerary up to the Captain which he noted he appreciated that we trusted him. The stops were awesome. Weather was perfect and seas were calmest he’s ever seen.  The boat was nice. Definitely was older and had its flaws at times bc of its age but nothing that stopped us from having a blast. The master room was amazing! I’m hoping we do another trip soon!

“Wow, you two are amazing! I’ve been to the BVI numerous times, but THIS was the MOST fabulous time I’ve had!! You are a perfect couple, doing a perfect job, showing us a perfect time!! The meals were out of this world, the sailing, snorkeling, diving, swimming, games, jokes all were great! BUT the hospitality and company was beyond our greatest expectations.

Memories For Years To Come

What wonderful experience! The many places that you took us to and the many things we were able to see and do will be a splendid memory for years to come. By far, the best feature was the fabulous food. Day after day the chef knocked it out of the park! fresh bread, vegetables and main courses added inches to my waistline. The crew was cohesive and singularly focused on our comfort and satisfaction. They do it right on Zingara I would welcome an opportunity to sail with this group again.

 by December 2019 Guests

We were all talking over dinner tonight in the Miami airport about what an amazing time we had with you, this past week. Frankly, we were expecting the BVI's to be a bit war torn after the hurricanes, but were pleasantly surprised to see things nearly back to normal. The St. Thomas airport was in fine shape and the islands in the BVIs as beautiful as we remembered. Dinner on Anagada was great, the Soggy Dollar bar was a lot of fun and scuba diving in several very cool spots was a definite highlight. Zingara is a beautiful boat. Extremely comfy and your crew very attentive. We all loved the chef's cooking and the cocktails were tasty and plentiful. My family was pleased to see the BVI's as beautiful as ever and we appreciate you creating a wonderful week for us!!

Most Wonderful Charter

Our family had one the most wonderful charters ever with Zingara! We have been chartering for many years so I feel very comfortable saying that Zingara is top notch and this was our second charter with her. The crew took such wonderful care of us and anticipated our every need. We all had a ball and we look forward to chartering again ! The crew made certain every evening anchorage was comfortable for us. The food was amazing and even our pickiest eater was happy! Happy Sailing!

 by The Francis Family

We will never forget this trip EVER and hope we can visit the boat and crew again someday, wherever they are.

 by The Asbury family

Thank you for a DELICIOUS and ADVENTUROUS filled week! The boat and our attentive crew exceeded our greatest expectations. The diving, snorkeling and sailing showed us the BVI and Spanish Virgins as we’ve never seen before. Zingara is truly magical… our family has relaxed and reconnected… we will treasure our memories and hope to see you again soon!

 by Kaled & Jill

Thank you so much for absolutely everything. It was the best experience and every day more memorable than the day before. Truly “World Class”.

 by Debbie W.

We are back in Naples and missing the Zingara and crew. I am doing laundry and yes I must cook dinner tonight! Such a shock to my system after being pampered for a week! Mark and I had the best time last week! You all treated us as royalty! Your attentiveness and professionalism was accomplished in such a warm and friendly manner. Thank you to each of you! And thank YOU for the 5 extra pounds! Haha! The food was amazing! You are such a talented chef! Our crew has anointed me the "author" of the Zingara 2016 Cruise Cookbook! So if you would not mind sharing some of your amazing recipes, it would be greatly appreciated! Of course whenever it is convenient for you! Thank you for a perfect week and for the recipes!
