CREW STARTING JULY 1, 2019

Chef Desree will tantalize your tastebuds with her wide variety of cuisines from around the world.

Fresh organic ingredients inspire Desree to create healthy meals and will gladly customize your menu based on your dietary requirements and requests, allowing you to relax and enjoy your holiday on board Amazing grace.

Captain Pierre Hugo:

Growing up in the small seaside suburb of Hout Bay in Cape Town, Pierre developed a passion for the ocean. Sailing, surfing, diving and fishing were part of his usual day while growing up.

Together with his love for the ocean and passion for nature conservation, Pierre went on to study environmental science and marine biology at the University of Cape Town. ..read more

Pierre knew from a young age he always wanted to work on the ocean and discovered through yachting he was able to do so.

Over the years Pierre has sailed some of the most beautiful and remote parts of the world, including the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Hawaii and the South Pacific. As an avid adventurer Pierre continues to discover hidden gems that are off the beaten track and enjoys sharing these experiences with those around him.

During one of these adventures in the Bahamas, Pierre met Desree. Both with a keen sense of humor and appreciation for mother nature the couple decided to join forces and share their fun adventures and knowledge of the ocean with others.

Chef/mate Desree Pierce:

Ever since Desree can remember she has always loved being in the kitchen creating new and exciting dishes for her friends and family back home in in Cape Town, South Africa.

Having studied and worked in fashion design, Desree developed a keen eye for detail and a natural creative flare. Her desire to work in the culinary trade led Desree to join a high profile catering company where she was able to expand her knowledge and refine her skills as a chef.

Desree’s passion for the ocean, travel and the culinary arts lead her into the world of yachting as she joined her first boat in 2015.

With years of experience as a chef on board private and charter yachts from the Mediterranean to Madagascar and everything in between, Desree enjoys creating menus utilising elements from different cuisines and creating exciting flavourful dishes. Her passion shines through her meticulous planning of flavour combinations, textures and presentation.

Keen to learn more and expand her skills as a chef, Desree recently completed an intensive pastry and bread making course at The Academy of Pastry Arts of Malaysia as well as undertaking placements at two of Kuala Lumpur's finest restaurants; Enoteca (Italian) and Aliyaa (Sri Lankan)

Desree put her skills to the test at the Antigua charter yacht show chefs competition in 2018 and went on to win first place for yachts up to 125ft

Desree has been lucky to have cooked for Chef Mario Batali and received the following testimonial:

”best yet. Truly perfect" …. so WOW!!!

CREW UNTIL JUNE 30, 2019.....

Mark’s friendly and humorous nature will make you feel right at home when stepping aboard Amazing Grace. As a young, aquatic enthusiast, his adventures began in a fishing village off the coastline of South Africa in a small home surrounded by a variety of cultures. Mark spent every waking moment either fishing or freediving for fresh seafood with a group of young Xhosa (native African) boys.

When he was just a teenager, Mark was awarded a sailing scholarship from Offshore Sailing Academy to obtain his Captain’s license. Going forward was pure bliss and he has had many excursions working as a Captain, Fishing Guide, and Dive Master in the most remote Islands around the world.

After crossing the Indian and the Atlantic Ocean on Amazing Grace, Mark settled in the Virgin Islands to run unique luxury charters. Luck would have it that after only a few months in the Caribbean islands, Mark met Halle who was on vacation in the British Virgin Islands. Now after multiple visits, Halle has put into action her desire to work in partner with Mark and share with others these experiences that made her fall in love with the islands.

Halle is a caring person with a fun-loving and hospitable spirit having grown up in North Carolina. A competitive swimmer from a young age, Halle had always shared a passion for the water. Even though she is from a small town in the foothills of the Carolinas, Halle infuses her Southern roots with her experience of European cuisine. You will enjoy a balance of hearty and healthy meals in a family atmosphere that Mark and Halle naturally create.
