Larry & Justyna

Captain/Chef Larry Tyler

LARRY TYLER takes pleasure in welcoming you aboard THE DOVE. Anglo/Italian, born in Italy, he speaks fluent Italian and French. Larry studied Hotel Management for four years and trained as a chef at the Dorchester Hotel in London before creating his own very successful international fashion house.

Inspired by the film "Dove", he set off in his 35' sailing boat to explore the South China Seas and the Indian Ocean using a sextant and chronometer as the only means of navigation. Along the way he traded in native jewelry, crossing the Indian Ocean six times and eluding the infamous pirates of the Malacca Straits and the Sulu Sea. There was no escaping the typhoons, however, and Larry experienced many. Logging all these sea miles gave him ample time to design the boat of his dreams, and so THE DOVE was born.

Larry has sailed and chartered from the South China Sea to Thailand, across the Indian Ocean to the Cape of Good Hope, across to Brazil, over to the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, above the Arctic Circle in Greenland, south to Patagonia, Cape Horn and twice to Antarctica. A keen underwater photographer and filmmaker, he has worked for National Geographic, NHK Japanese TV and other producers of documentaries. Larry's other pastimes are windsurfing, snow skiing and cooking Mediterranean and Oriental cuisine.

As your host aboard THE DOVE, he is delighted to share his intimate knowledge of whatever cruising area you choose and to ensure you have the best vacation more

First Mate and Assistant ChefJustyna Kramer, 34, Polish

Justyna joined THE DOVE in 2010, crossing the Atlantic from the Azores to the Caribbean via the Cape Verde Islands. For the past four years she has worked as first mate and assistant chef, sailing up and down the Caribbean island chain from Tobago to the BVI enjoying every minute and every mile logged at sea. In the summer of 2013 she worked on Coral, a 111 year old 36 meter classic sailing boat, sailing from the U.K. to the Mediterranean as the cook, stewardess and deckhand.

Cooking, sailing and visiting new places are Justynas passions. She is very interested in nutrition and living a healthy life style. She has many fabulous Italian recipes and especially loves cooking seafood - a skill which complements Larrys fishing skills.

A very lively and energetic person, Justyna enjoys running, skiing, swimming and cycling. She is a keen photographer; loves jazz, blues and classical music and reads all sorts of books from biographies and history to Narnia and Harry Potter.

Before discovering sailing and charter yachts, Justyna worked in Switzerland as a nanny and as a tour guide in a Swiss museum. Whilst working as a nanny in London she studied Reflexology and Massage at Regents College and qualified with the highest diploma.

Justyna is fluent in Polish, German and English.

Nova Scotia Charter August 2017
I can say without hesitation, that our week on your boat was the finest vacation our family has taken together and we are all dreaming about when and where the next opportunity will be for us to do this again with you. It’s so obvious that you (and Justyna), have been doing this for so long since you made us all feel so welcome and natural on board even though we had never met nor even spent time on a sailboat before.
February charter 2016
Dear Larry & Justyna,
We had the most wonderful sailing adventure with you both! And hope to do it again in the future. Stay healthy and Fair winds . You're very easy to be with ...great hospitality and yummy food. And it was wonderful to hear about all your world sailing experiences and about life in far off places.The Dove was a beautiful ,lovely ,comfortable sailing ship to be on for 10 days. Now if we can only find a way to sleep as well in our beds without the gentle rolling of the sea.....

Until soon,
Barbara & Ken

Larry, it was really great meeting you and Justyna. The trip was a tremendous experience that we will never forget. I really hope our paths cross again and that we have more days on the Dove again in the future.

Our perspectives are forever changed by sailing with you for the week. Who could ask for more from a family vacation. Outstanding.
