CAPTAIN BIO
Trevor Tonetti

Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, at a young age Trevor discovered that he had a wandering spirit and a lust for life and its many experiences. In his early 20´s, Trevor travelled and worked in many different countries where he amassed quite the collection of adventures. He can share a few while on charter!

In his late 20´s he decided to conquer his greatest fear - the ocean. He received his Skippers License in Durban and sailed the East and West coasts of South Africa, then crossed the Atlantic and into the beautiful Caribbean Sea where he lived & worked on St. Martin. He worked on different boats and chartered sunset cruises on a 40´ motor yacht.

When Hurricane Luis hit in 1995 Trevor stayed on the island helping to rebuild homes. A year later he sailed to the Azores & then headed back home and started up his own company building residential houses and a few high-end homes. He continued working in the construction industry running turnkey projects and managing civil and steel construction sites until the Covid pandemic hit. During lockdown he reassessed his life and decided to reconnect with his passion for sailing and attained his Yachtmaster Offshore License.

In 2021 Trevor sold his home, his car, his motorbike, and mountain bike and bought a 31´ yacht which he lived on with Sarah. They sailed the Cape waters and did a couple of deliveries around the Cape of Good Hope.

Trevor & Sarah flew to St. Martin in January of 2022 where they worked a season chartering out of St. Martin, Aguila and St. Barths.

Trevor is at his happiest when he is at the helm on the open water trying to set the sails for a perfect course. He has a very calm and soothing demeanor which the guests always comment on, and he loves chatting and getting to know the people he encounters.

When not at the helm, you will find him paddleboarding, snorkeling, mountain biking, hiking or enjoying the outdoors, and to fully relax he loves to read.


CHEF BIO
Sarah Hallett

Sarah was born in Zimbabwe and moved to South Africa at a young age. She always wanted to travel and in her mid-thirties decided to venture to the UK for a year. One year turned to fourteen after the travel bug hit! She has been to 41 countries & counting! A few of her biggest adventures include climbing Machu Picchu, taking a local boat through the Amazon & volunteering in the Borneo jungle.

Sarah is very much a free spirit and has always had a passion for the outdoors, so she prefers to travel to more remote places. She worked multiple jobs simultaneously to fund her 3-5 months of backpacking and volunteering each year. There were various hospitality jobs which included working at Royal Ascot, The British Open and festivals around the UK and Scotland.

In 2020 Sarah decided it was time for a new adventure, and headed back to South Africa to enroll in a couple of sailing and cooking courses before heading to the Caribbean. This was of course when Covid hit.

The plan then changed, and Sarah and Trevor bought a 31´ yacht in Cape Town in 2021 which they lived on for 8 months while Sarah learned to sail, realizing how much she loved being on the ocean. Even though it´s a newly discovered passion for Sarah, there is a long history of sailing in her family with her father and grandfather being in the navy, as well as her brother and nephews all working in the charter industry.

Sarah and Trevor now own a 43´ monohull which they have fixed up and plan to in the future sail around the world exploring. Sarah loves spending time in the kitchen trying out new dishes and recreating old recipes. She prefers using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients making lots of salads and delicious meals and desserts. She enjoys sharing typical South African dishes and her food is always made with love!

When not in the kitchen you will find Sarah somewhere in nature; snorkeling or hiking, exploring. She also enjoys reading and taking photos of the beauty which always surrounds us. Sarah´s motto is ´Live Life in Full Colour´!

2022

A family vacation to remember. Sarah and Trevor went above and beyond to deal with having a 5 & 8 year old on board. The boys lived the boat life and lived in the dolphin seats. Thanks so much for your flexibility on meals (both time and content)!
Love,
Nancy

This family trip was epic!

It will be talked about forever. The boat and tour were tops and so were our captain and first mate, Trevor and Sarah. We couldn´t have asked for more from you two. Thank you so much!
