Meet the Crew

CAPTAIN GARETH WOOD

Captain Gareth Wood has been at the helm of superyachts for more than 12 years, most recently the brilliant luxury charter catamaran Xenia74 with his wife and Chef, Kristine Andreassen. Prior to his career in the charter industry, Gareth was trained in Dental Technology, lecturing worldwide on orthodontics, always with a yearning for more time on the water. He holds dual South African and British passports and his love of travel was one of the prime motivators to pursuing a career in the charter industry.

After fulfilling his Captains qualifications, he made the leap into superyachts full-time. More than a decade on, Gareth has managed several vessels in charter, with hundreds of charters under his belt, as well as handling three cross-Atlantic deliveries and overseeing complicated refits on behalf of owners. He has extensive experience in boat mechanics, plumbing and electrical systems, and certification as a sailing and scuba diving instructor.

During his career, Gareth has skippered yachts in the world’s premier charter destinations such as the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Mexico, and many remote and exotic locations such as Phuket and Myanmar...read more

When he’s not working, Gareth enjoys films, books and snow skiing, but the water holds particular allure for him and spear fishing, free diving and underwater photography are high on his list of hobbies. To each and every charter Gareth brings his full professionalism and passion for the yachting lifestyle to the benefit of his fortunate guests, many of whom become return clients.

American by birth, Kristine grew up assisting her dad in all facets of his charter business in St Thomas. She is capable and confident around yachts of all sizes, and adept at managing a charter vessel while catering to the needs of guests from all walks of life.

In her role as Chef and First Mate, Kristine contributes to the overall success of operations onboard: the sailing, upkeep of the vessel, and management of crew, always with the ease of a professional undertaking their true calling.

Apart from cooking, with is her love as well as her livelihood, Kristine enjoys running for fitness and fun, horseback riding and delving into history. She is a certified dive instructor and qualified in First Aid and CPR.

Reviews for Gareth & Kristine aboard previous yachts:

Gareth & Kristine were friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating. They were always available and nearby and frequently checking on us to see if we needed a drink, snack, something carried, wanted to do an activity, etc., but they were never intrusive. Very professional and organized. I was extremely impressed with their ability to give us a plan but then be totally responsive if they sensed that we wanted to modify that plan. They simply could not have done a better job.

The food was a 10 out of 10. Every meal could have stood its ground in the world’s best restaurants. Everything from how the table was set, to the plating, to the quality of the ingredients, to the use of spices, to the variety between meals, was impeccable. Everyone raved about it and we had no desire to leave the boat for meals elsewhere because of this.

The boat was spotless, comfortable and well-ventilated. The air conditioning in the staterooms was very capable as well so we always were comfortable temperature-wise. They cleaned the staterooms frequently while we were dining or doing activities but I never saw them doing this nor had it interrupt our flow. Everything on the yacht was in good working order, shining and beautiful. The best part of the yacht was the high-end finishes and spacious areas.

Sailing Directions' service was also flawless. Great crew. Great boat. Overwhelming smooth and positive experience.
