Captain Louis -
Louis grew up on the Bluff in Durban on the East coast of South Africa, he has a friendly outgoing personality and loves people, entertaining and enjoying life. His love for the sea started at a very young age, spending all his spare time surfing, scuba, windsurfing and sailing. Louis worked his way into owning 50% of a 27ft yacht at the age off 17 and that’s where it all started. He has done many miles and hours accumulating endless knowledge in the art of sailing, enjoying boating and sailing in and out of different ports of South Africa. Louis owned various boats and ended up doing charters on a partly owned private catamaran together with his wife as charter chef and hostess on mostly the West coast of South Africa. Come and experience life onboard with Captain Louis.


Chef Tersia -
Tersia grew up in Johannesburg, sunny South Africa, after obtaining her senior certificate at school she studied at RA University where she obtained a Bachelor of Commerce degree in finance. Working for corporate companies for many years she came to the conclusion that people was her passion, and not figures, as she enjoys the social life and love being in the kitchen to prepare impressive dishes for her guests.

Meeting her husband on a sailing holiday, they decided to venture into enjoying life and having fun. Entertaining and hosting people led them to opening a restaurant where Tersia could live out her passion. She has always enjoyed the ocean and loves scuba, snorkeling and early morning swims. Her passion for hosting and making exquisite meals will make your visit a memorable one.

Dolce Vita Guest Reviews

Previous Yacht NameDulce Vita
Bahamas with the BEST CREW - 15 out of 10!!!

Y´all, these folks are the WAY TO GO! When we started looking with very short notice, the gentleman we spoke with worked non-stop to get us with the closest set-up to what we needed. We originally were trying to get on a power-catamaran, but there were none available in our requested price range in the Bahamas. But Jeremy Snider worked through an evening and most of a day to match us with a sail catamaran that would get the job done, and we are so thankful he did!
We were set up with the most incredible Captain and Chef - Louis and Tersia. I´ve never met such kind and accommodating people from the moment they sent a welcome letter through the entire trip. They were in constant contact asking any of our preferences and special requests and doing everything in their power to make it all happen. And her meals - 15 OUT OF 10! Above and beyond what we were expecting...from the taste to the presentation, every bite we took was delicious! She even made us a Thanksgiving dinner- AND they helped us set a projector up for the Thanksgiving football games! Ps- I´ve never had turkey so moist and perfectly cooked. Ever.
Capitan Louis kept us informed and asked our opinions on the itinerary, taking any of our must-do-excursions in mind. We encountered great weather, so we´ve been lucky there, but I´m sure there was a large part that the captain took into consideration to keep us comfortable and safe.
Long-winded story short, do everything you can to make it happen with this crew. They make you feel like royalty while being a part of the family with you. I´ll never forget this trip!

First Exumas Charter

The crew was wonderful. Captain Martin was really good with the boys. The chef was excellent and very kind to my kids. We were very happy with everything. We had a great time and the service was wonderful. The islands are further apart, so you spend a lot more time moving. The winds were low for most of our trip, which meant little sailing and also made it hot as hell.
