Prior to entering the industry, Kendra worked in a variety of restaurants and bars from high-end to mom-and-pop since she was 15 years old. Some of her favorite cuisines to cook are Mexican, Asian fusion, sushi, light lunches, and southern food. She also loves cooking vegan dishes, especially vegan desserts. Many different fresh salads, a variety of pasta, handmade artisanal bread, and some of the most delicious desserts are a few of Kendra’s staples.

Favorite B HAPPY moments 3/2023:

Greeting at the airport from Luke!
And seeing THE COMPANION with Cobus at the pier/dock! SMILES!

First view and WITH AWE, the B HAPPY! The welcome pre-boarding area with Kendra and Keri’s happy faces and fresh hand towels awaiting us on board. A perfect champagne and mimosa toast to kick off our week and Salute to the beautiful B HAPPY accommodations as well as our hosts The Hatherly’s.

Viewing this yacht from near and far, but love how EVERYTHING has a place! Safety information was shared and we always felt safe under Captain Luke. Being able to unpack for the week in cabins and settle in. Regardless of small twin beds we were quite cozy and comfortable. This boat is charming and well cared for.

Very, very quickly we realized what a delight mealtime would be as we enjoyed the freshest and unique ingredients, creative menus and magnificent presentations by Kendra!
Amazed time and time again! Special accommodations were always welcomed. Our time around the table was a spectacular experience and perfect for sharing stories. Truly my love of “it’s in the details” magically happened in so many areas of B HAPPY! Loved the logo carefully branding items in so many perfect ways especially our crew matching personal shirt and cap. Magic always happening behind the scenes including the surprise tidiness of our cabins. Keri was a gem and always a few steps ahead of what we might be thinking. And a personal favorite was the on point vibe of place-settings and table presentation, coffee table decor, coasters, unique serving trays and crafted beverages making each meal and canapé a treat!

We had private evening time enjoying games which was a magical time on B HAPPY!

B Happy crew made memories for us off the boat too! Happy hour on the sand bar and the BEACH set up with the beautiful lunch were highlights! Another special memory was swimming at the reef with turtles and snorkeling. A bonus for the men was surely the duo jet skis. And I TOO was happy to enjoy this thrill. Water toys brought new adventures. While fishing with Cobus the last morning wasn’t considered successful amongst the fishermen, being in the ocean, watching waves and spectacular water colors was the best.
