Captain Carl was the individual winner as 'Best Captain of a Mega Yacht in 2001' at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. This accolade was given for his ability to be a 'can do' positive leader.
StarFire's Captain takes special pride in imparting his knowledge and love of the sea. Captain Carl's motto for yachting is that 'there are no problems only solutions' and he governs himself accordingly.
Chef, Wim Goethals (Belgian, Age 31) comes to us from Belgium. He has been a professional Chef for eight years, four of which have been spent in the yachting industry. Since taking his culinary skills to sea, Wim has worked on a variety of high-profile yachts, both private and charter.
Wim relishes in creating culinary masterpieces for the most discerning of palates, using what is available to him locally. His yachting career has allowed him the opportunity to study the local cuisine of many international destinations, including France, Italy, Thailand, India, and the Seychelles.
Some of his specialties include French gastronomical cuisine, Asian cuisine, vegetarian and vegan dishes, Japanese cuisine, ice creams, and sorbets.
