CAPTAIN Luc Heymans
Belgium :: languages fluent English, French and Dutch.
With over 15 years of ocean racing under his belt, Luc has participated in several Round the World Races and Inshore World Championships in the USA, UK, France and Italy, in the eighties and nineties.
He has strong skills in yacht management and implementation of projects such as refits, diving and research.
Luc founded Cosmix Underwater Research and successfully managed the underwater research and survey of ´The Cirebon Wreck´, a 10th century trading vessel discovered in Indonesia.
Luc holds a Captain License 500 GT, RYA Yacht Master Offshore and is a CMAS 2-star Dive Instructor and a PADI Divemaster.

CHEF Daniel Moumou
Seychelles :: languages Creole, French, English, some Italian and German.
After completing his education at the Seychelles Cooking School, Daniel worked at various resorts and hotels in the Seychelles. At the newly opened 5-star Lemuria Resort and Golf Course on Praslin Island, he worked his way up from Commis Chef to Chef de Partie, specialising in Italian and
Mediterranean cuisine. After two years, he moved on to a position as Sous Chef on the exclusive Desroches Island and stayed for 6 years.
Daniel wanted to try something new and found just what he liked: work as Chef with Dream Yacht Charters. Stints as varied as Chef on oil tankers and boutique-sized Silhouette Cruises in the Seychelles, preceded a return to free-lance work on various catamarans and superyachts.
He has been Chef on LONESTAR since 2015 and delights the owner´s family and charter guests alike with fabulous Creole, Mediterranean, Asian and international cuisine.
In short: Daniel is flexible and is not afraid to make changes in the menu at last minute, for example to prepare their fresh catch of the day. Daniel´s humour and upbeat personality complement his cooking skills. He is also a sailing-savvy First Mate and likes singing, sports and hiking.
