Location 5.4 Crew Profile
CAPTAIN: Nik Dorward
Growing up just outside London, Nik was captivated by the food scene that surrounded him. This led to him training as a chef and working in various roles within hospitality at some of the capital´s most prestigious restaurants and hotels. Nik´s sailing career started in dinghies, sailing in lakes and braving the elements along the UK´s coast. As his passion developed so did his desire for a slightly warmer climate which led him to Greece and slightly bigger boats.
Whilst in Greece and the Med, Nik married his love for hospitality and sailing. Working as a flotilla skipper and charter skipper exposing him to an array of different yachts and destinations. More recently Nik has been back in the UK putting his experience to good use training new sailors and running adventure cruises.
Nik has a real love for the sea and the unique perspective that sailing gives. He is as much at home in the sea doing water sports as he is exploring the shores. You can expect him to uncover the local haunts for excursions ashore and dropping the hook in bays that provide the perfect backdrop for sunset cocktails.
CHEF: Lily Davison
Growing up close to London, Lily was born with a passion for cooking, influenced by the chefs in her family and her travels around the world. She pursued a career as a private chef on yachts after completing her Bachelor´s and Master´s degrees in Geographical Sciences and Environmental Policy and Management at the University of Bristol, in United Kingdom. As a manager at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships for 5 years, Lily also enjoys hosting and has a high standard for guest interactions.
When it comes to her creativity in the kitchen, she enjoys incorporating fresh local ingredients and loves immersing herself in culture. She has signature dishes that are heavily influenced by her travels to Mexico, Italy, and Spain. Lily isn´t afraid to merge local, sometimes exotic ingredients into her dishes. Making her style unique, and giving her an ever expanding menu.

Nik & Lily,
Thank you for an unforgettable, wonderful week! We loved every minute and you made it look easy which it definitely is not... Hope to see you on another adventure some day - thank you again!
-Allison & Dan
Loved getting to know you both and thank you so much for all the delicious treats! Come see us in Denver.
Dear Nik & Lily,
We can´t thank you enough for leading us on such a magical adventure in the Bahamas. The boat was beautiful, the weather amazing, and the sights completely beautiful, but it may be the sincere energy, enthusiasm, and kindness from the two of you that we remember and appreciate the most. We recognize all the preparation and effort it takes to deliver such wonderful food and exciting excursions - you guys do it all with grace and provide such lovely company all the while, even when we threw curve balls like lost luggage and had to reach friends. We wish you both all the best and look forward to our paths crossing again in the future!
Thanks for a great trip! -George
Your love of fabulous food is evident in everything you do! We had the best week with you two! Thank you thank you! - Julie
Nik & Lily,
What an incredible week we’ve had! The natural beauty of each spot, the delicious food, and excellent service all made for an unforgettable time. We sincerely appreciate all the thoughtful details and you’re making it all look easy/which we know it’s not! See you in the Grenadines?

Nik & Lily,
What a fantastic adventure! Thanks for the amazing food, wine and cocktails. Love the attention to detail, great swimming and snorkeling, the tender in the waves, the ´shark attacks´ cappuccino, sausage rolls, lobster, the tiny snapper! Lot´s of ´wine o´clock´ anytime of the day, late night drinks at 9pm! Lots of laughing! Loved it all!! Best Penny
Thank you for a lovely week! Obviously when you book a5 night private trip on a private catamaran for a work associates, your hopes and expectations are very high. A little trip intimidation about spending that many days with work people. You two so very much exceeded our hopes and expectations. I never dreamed we´d have a gourmet spread for all three meals a day. Homemade desserts each evening served with a smile - you met us when we came back from our excursions with a snack. Thank you.
Each days excursions were well thought out. Something new to see and do each day. You both have the perfect temperament to entertain and we pushed it hard from early morning to late at night. Nick was so patient and accommodating with all our various requests and different levels of abilities.
I can´t say what was my favorite activity because they were all so different and interesting. Thank you for a week I´ll never forget. Please, please come visit us in Kansas. Not as beautiful as your Caribbean, but would be a great place for you to base a Midwest tourist trip from.
Sincerely, Nancy & Tim
Thank you so much for an incredible week on the Location. The views were great and the rides were smooth. All our meals were fantastic and appreciate all the kindness extended to the children! Thank you so much for your great hospitality. The meals were incredible, we will be working those off for the entire year. You both were great with the children and Benjamin loved seeing how to run the ship. Thank you again - you both are awesome and you helped make this trip incredible!
Trip of a Lifetime
Just got back from a family trip to the Exumas with Captain Nik and Chef Ben on Catamaran Location! We had a trip of a lifetime. Excellent crew, beautiful scenery and great boat! ~Jessica
Words cannot describe what a fantastic week this was. Snorkeling, sailing, drinking and story telling were all top-notch. Nik - thank you for your guides and daily drinks. Nik - thank you for all of the delicious food and conversation. These memories will last a lifetime!
Spending a week with you on Location was better than imagined. Both our families were able to see the Exumas in a way many can´t, eat world class food and enjoy the time together that is hard to find nowdays.
The catamaran was ideal in every way and the tender made little trips off the boat fantastic.
We even caught a grouper!
The boat was ideal, but adding you two to the trip makes it worth doing again! Thanks for everything you did!
This week was wonderful! We will see you again!
Thank you for the best vacation of all time. I really enjoyed getting to know you both :)
What an amazing adventure and life memory. Thank you for giving us memories to last a life time and laughter and exceptional cocktails. Until next time with lots of love.
Thank you both so much for an unforgettable week. We recognize and truly appreciate how much energy and effort both of you put towards making sure all of us got the most out of every day. We wish you both the best and hope to bump into you all on a sandbar in the future.
