MEET YOUR CREW FOR THE 2023/2024 SEASON
Captain: Kayla Rosenstrauch
Chef: Chris Allwright

Kayla grew up along the Texas coast and spent her summers on the water aboard fishing boats and at the beach. This guided her passion for the ocean. At the age of 16 signed up for a scuba diving camp, in the British Virgin Islands, where she lived on a catamaran and went diving three times a day for 6 weeks. This is when her desire to become a Captain and Divemaster got started.

After obtaining her marketing degree at LSU, she first worked as a chef/hostess for Quarterdeck and then attended a sailing/captain’s school in South Africa where she did a 4-month program to obtain her RYA Yachtmaster Certification. This is when she knew she had made the right decision and followed her heart. Kayla returned to Croatia where she began working as a captain.

Kayla is a sociable and ultra-positive individual with a love for people and is extremely outgoing and enthusiastic about life!

Chris started off his love of cooking at a young age with his father who always encouraged him to make his own meals, no matter the challenge it may have presented.

He has a degree in geological science and worked in the advertising industry for 3 years before joining a culinary program to become a private chef. He has worked on charter yachts in Croatia and Greece and as a private chalet chef in the French Alps.

In 2022, Chris also worked as a relief chef for several different restaurants in different locations throughout Dublin. This afforded him a unique insight into different kitchens offering differing cuisines and styles.

Having first crossed paths in 2021 Kayla and Chris became best friends. They have had the opportunity to work together on charters in the Virgin Islands and when they both worked in Croatia.

They are truly an outstanding duo and look forward to tailoring the experience to their guests preference, while sharing their love for cooking, cocktails, sailing, diving and sunsets on the ocean in their favorite bays. Kayla and Chris are super excited to run charters on Felix!

Broker Review

How did you find your crew? Were they friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating?
The crew was wonderful. Kayla and Chris fitted in with our family perfectly and made us feel comfortable and at home aboard Felix. Their humor and knowledge were both greatly appreciated!


Was the yacht comfortable, clean and well ventilated? What was your
favorite aspect of the yacht?
The yacht was very comfortable and clean. It had all of the accommodations we needed, nothing was missing. Personally I enjoyed the various different viewpoints to sit or lounge at while we went from island to island.


Was the food enjoyable and well presented? Did the chef customize the
menu to your preferences?
The food was fantastic; Chris truly spoiled us! I personally have a challenging diet with several allergies and he made sure every meal felt complete vs feeling like an, “allergy friendly,” meal. And it was all delicious!


Did you enjoy the itinerary and the area you sailed?
1000%. Every day of the charter my love for the Virgin Islands grew.


Were you happy with your broker´s service? How can we improve?
Very happy.


Can we share your feedback with the yacht/crew?
Absolutely! We miss them already!

I Loved Being On This Yacht

Zack and Taylor, I loved this trip so much. I had so much fun. I am so thankful that we met you two. From late night games to riding on the dinghy spending time with you was so much fun. I loved being on this yacht and wished we could stay here for longer. Thank you for a great week with great relationships.
Alexis and the Lacombe Family

Snorkeling was the Best!

Taylor and Zack, this whole trip has been a blast, one of my favorites. I learned so many new things like skip-bo, cooking, baking. Snorkeling was the best! Thank you so much for the best week of my life.




Zack and Taylor, What can we say? What an amazing week of fun in the sun. We couldn´t ask for a more attentive and gracious crew/hosts. From sailing the open water to the beaches to snorkeling, you two have made this a trip of a lifetime. Taylor, the food was amazeballs and your attention to Camille made my heart smile. You will truly be an amazing mother one day!!! Zack, your skills, safety and knowledge of all things sea-worthy are unmatched. We really appreciate your efforts to keep us busy at all times. Last but not least, the flying fish!! I personally could do that for days. I know the girls loved it as well.

Zack and Taylor, thank you so much for such an amazing experience! The food was so good and it was a good break from McDonalds. I had so much fun snorkeling and adventuring. I wish our story was longer! I had a ton of fun going to the baths and hiking. Wish we could stay forever.

A Week of Laughs, Fun, New Memories and Experiences

Dear Zack and Taylor, What an amazing week this has been.. one full week of laughs, fun, new memories, new islands and experiences, and super smooth sailing with amazing food.

Taylor, the food was delicious and I will be reaching out for the green goddess dip, avocado pasta recipe, and your homemade burritos/ chips. I loved your daily board and food presentations.
Zack - thank you for truly making the daily sail trips comfortable, safe, all while answering our questions and accommodating our requests. I wish you both the best in your future adventures.

One Big Family Now

Captain - thank you so much for navigating us safely thru the BVI´s, ensuring we had an awesome time playing with all the water toys and snorkel gear and keeping our drinks chilled and beer on ice!
Chef Taylor - you are such a talented chef! We all raved all week on how delicious all your homemade food was.
Most importantly, thank you both for making sure we had a trip of a lifetime!! We feel like one big family with you both now and will most certainly keep in touch in the future.

Thank You For Everything!!!

The most fabulous surprise this week was the cooking. The variety and ingenious recipes- all of them health foods, blew my mind. It´s the first time ever I really enjoyed health conscious cooking. There were meals- your baked eggs, my favorite - that were shockingly tasty. Thank you for everything. You adapted to our dietary choices. One pescatarian, dairy free, gluten free, and spice intolerance. And like magic came up with recipes that were both gorgeous and delicious, filling and healthy. You did it with love and enthusiasm-including the menu board done with calligraphy. And the boat was so comfy.

Zack our captain always with a good plan and smooth ride with a happy and kind demeanor. You were so thoughtful in your explanations and feedback was so positive and thoughtful.Way beyond your years. Wish every man was as good to his lady and other women as you. The world would be a better place. Your humor was always kind and silly fun. And the dives were wonderful.

Bottom line, I´d love to adopt you. Be proud of you for your resourceful, mindful energy- it´s beautiful. Thank you so much for a week of restoration in this stressful time. So good to find. Don´t lose your mojo - its precious. Call me when you hit SoCal.

What An Adventure

Taylor and Zack, what an adventure....beyond every expectation. ´Service´ with a smile. Sailing smoothly, diving beautifully.

The cuisine- gourmet, inventive, delicious, and so amazingly flexible and tasty.
Captain´s cocktails were perfect.
The company, we loved our interactions.

You both are so wonderful and so very hardworking. You excellence made it an excellent trip. We will miss you both and look forward to the next time our tradewinds put us in the same path. Stay on your journeys. Until we meet again!

The World Is Better Having You In It.

It was such a pleasure to meet both of you. You both are so unique with wonderful energy. I feel very lucky to have met you and look forward to keeping in touch. Taylor, please publish your recipes! You have a real gift and the world will fall in love with your dishes. Most importantly, you both are really special and the world is better for having you in it.

Wow-Oh-Wow

Wow-oh-wow Zack, you are a great captain and what a tremendous week we have had here in the virgin islands.

You rocked out so many fun activities for us:
Scuba diving
The octopus shipwreck
Penetrating the steel structure and exploring the engine room!!!

Jane loved watching Felix (son) wakeboard with RIzzo as your copilot in the tender from the stand up paddle board in the beautiful bay off Virgin Gorda. (our favorite island)
Greg and Jane watched you sail or motor almost every moment of the adventure and sure appreciated the knowledge bestowed from the helm!

and.... Sweet Southern Taylor! How we enjoyed your delicious, culinary offerings! Especially the fabulous nightly sweet treats!

You were a vital member of our rowdy night out at Willy T´s´ from the shotski to the dance floor...and don´t forget about the belly laughing over the pirates creed.

As much as Jane loved swimming and being beachy with Rizzo, he so enjoyed arting and gaming in the kitchen with you that we adults ( plus teenager) had some special moments away from big parenting responsibility,

Thanks so much for that amazing space to relax and unwind.
Can´t wait to connect again on the great mother´s waters.

So Much Fun

Taylor, I´ve had so much fun with you in the kitchen!! I loved when you played games with us and I really enjoyed when we stayed back from the hike and it was just us two!!! I´ll miss you!

Zack, thank you for keeping us safe with your sailing skills! I really liked when you took us out for a sunset dinghy ride, I also liked when we sang the 100 bottles of beer song! We will miss you all so much. Thank you!

You Made Us Feel So Comfortable!

This has been such an amazing trip because of Taylor and Zack! You all have been so kind, helpful, and it is so great how well you work as a team. Taylor, your food was so amazing and never failed to make us happy. You were also so helpful and fun. The games we played were so fun and you always let us help you cook.
Zack, you are an amazing captain. You were also having a good time with us from fun facts and learning games. You were a great hiking leader. You both were so involved with us which made us more comfortable. Thank you so much for a great trip. I will always remember this.

10/10

This was 10/10 easily the best trip I have ever taken. Both of you are really awesome people, some of the best that I know. Taylor, you make the best food I have ever tasted and are super fun to hang out with. Zack, you know all the secrets to all the islands and are pretty tough and super fun to hang out with. Thank you for the best trip of my short life...so far. Maybe next year will be even better.

Packed With Experiences

Thank you for an enjoyable week of sailing and exploring. Very much enjoyed meeting you both and incorporating you into our family while in the USVI. It went by so quickly but was packed with so many unique experiences, beach time, hiking, ruins, snorkeling (day and night), and many water sports. Great time!

Activity Filled Week!

Zack and Taylor, this has been an amazing week. We have done so much that it is really hard to pick one favorite. Hiking, snorkeling, swimming, tubing, wakeboarding, puzzles, games, stories, sunsets, beautiful views, great music, and so much more! I can´t believe how much we packed into one week.
Food...Where do I start? Every meal and snack was so thoughtful and accommodating to our families. Everything was delicious and beautiful. I will definitely be texting you for recipes.

This is in the books with one of our favorite vacations, with a lot of new amazing memories which you will forever be part of! Stay in touch and let us know if you are ever is Louisville.

Unforgettable Vacation

Thank you so much! The boat, the toys, the islands, the food, the games, the snorkeling, was amazing. But, Zack and Taylor made this one of our most unforgettable vacations ever! You guys were just part of our family. Appreciate the work, time, and love you invested in us. We will never forget this trip. Thank you and best wishes of bright future.

Calling Foodies!

This is definitely a yacht for foodies. The food and drinks will leave you wanting more. Taylor´s food and drinks are amazing! Zack is a wonderful yachtsman. He knows his places and having him share where to go next every evening was very informative. They really made this trip a lot of fun and very enjoyable for us.

Wonderful!

Our experience with Zack and Taylor was WONDERFUL! Taylor is an incredible chef, every meal was somehow better than the last. The desserts were out of this world. Zack and Taylor both made excellent drinks and kept them flowing! Zack was also super helpful around the boat. Thank you both.

Amazing Team!

Amazing experience. Outstanding food each and every time.
Zack and Taylor are an amazing team. Looking forward to next time.

Awesome Duo!

If I can make a recommendation
-bloody marys
-egg rolls
-lobster dip and lobster tails

Zack and Taylor are an awesome duo. They kept us fed, hydrated, and super entertained. Looking forward to the next trip.

A Key Lime Pie to die for, thanks for such a memorable trip!

What an amazing adventure! Zack and Taylor were great hosts. We sailed and stopped at so many great locations, so it´s hard to pick a favorite. I think Christmas Cove was my favorite snorkeling spot. Saw amazing coral, fish, rays, and starfish! Zack was always accommodating or making sure we went to locations that met our devices. Chef Taylor - Wow! The food was incredible! I´m sure the scales will confirm that I enjoyed everything Taylor prepared for us. I´m having a hard time coming up with a favorite entree but dessert...hands down for me was the Key Lime pie. Taylor uses many unique and delicious flavors to enhance everything she cooks. The presentations are pure art work. It was fun to see Taylor and Zack working as a team in the kitchen. Thanks for a memorable vacation.

Thank you so much for a beautiful trip through the Virgin Islands!

Thank you so much for a beautiful trip through the Virgin Islands. The Felix offered great spaces for relaxing, reading, eating, playing games etc. Zack and Taylor were great hosts. Very flexible and accommodating, showing us so many private spots to chill. Food was unbelievable - nice job Taylor. Looking forward to your blog and recipe book :) Visit all of us in Michigan anytime! We would love to show you around.

This charter has been a long time (30 plus years) dream of ours!

We had an amazing time on the Felix with Zack and Taylor. This has been a long time (30 plus years) dream of ours. It exceeded our expectations. Zack is a knowledgeable captain. We felt safe at all times. He was full of information about the islands and always took us someplace interesting and fun. We especially enjoyed snorkeling at Monkey Point and Christmas Cove. Visiting the Baths was an especially nice trip. Zack also is a great scuba instructor. Doing a refresher course and dive was great. So the only thing bad I can say about Taylor´s cooking was that my clothes are so tight as I prepare to leave! Steak and lobster were so good. As was the korean kabobs and Key Lime pie (BEST EVER!) The Felix is a great boat. Comfortable and well outfitted but Taylor and Zack made the trip! You became like family Visit Michigan some day!

Knowledgeable and Professional

Thank you Captain Zack and Chef Taylor for a wonderful week on Felix. We couldn´t have asked for a better time! Both Zack and Taylor were friendly and enthusiastic about showing us all the BVI and USVI has to offer. Both are extremely knowledgeable, professional, and open to ideas and we always felt safe and comfortable. Besides knowing everything there is to know about marine life, Zack went above and beyond with taking our teenage crosscountry enthusiast son on trail runs and explored other islands. Taylor always made sure we were full and satisfied - her dishes were consistently tasty. Thank you Felix and crew, we hope to be back again soon!

Thank you Felix and Crew

Thank you very much for our time on the Felix. We could not have had a better time. Even with one night of rain you all made it a blast. We loved having Zack go out snorkeling in the water with us. He was able to show and teach us so much about marine life. Taylor´s food kept us full and was yummy. The Low Country Boil was delicious. There is so much to do you will never get bored. A vacation of a lifetime. Thank you Felix and crew.

Exceeded Our Expectations

This trip has been a bucket list vacation for the last 10 years! With all the build up and daydreaming you would have thought we might end up ´romanticizing´ it more than possible, not at all!

You balanced rest with fun for all in a way that would elude most. Thank you for hosting memorable days and all of the Hard Work!! Your efforts have facilitated life long memories for all!

Your guests are lucky to get you! And...we were lucky to spend the week with you!
Fair winds and following seas!

An Adventurous Week

That was one hell of an adventurous week! Thank you for helping us be ´life hogs´.

Thanks for the fun, laughs, drinks, food, sailing, diving, snorkeling, and all around good times!
