***CREW FOR JULY 2022- MID JAN 2023***
MAGNUS WITTERSO - JADE KONST

Captain Magnus hails from the frigid fjords of Norway with several captains in his blood line. He spent his entire childhood regatta racing, teaching sailing and working for the King in the Norwegian Navy before he felt himself being drawn to far more tropical latitudes. Now, thawed out, and after several years of cruising on his private sailboat, multiple ocean crossings and chartering the most stunning waters and island groups in the world, he can guarantee a fantastic experience with well thought out itineraries and adventures.

Chef Jade was born and raised nestled between the Coastal mountains and the sea on Canada´s West Coast. Jade found a love for all things ocean at an early age. Her hometown of Vancouver is known for its multinational cuisine and spectacular seafood straight from the Pacific Ocean. She honed her culinary talents while working in some of the most exclusive resorts the area has to offer. As a Chef, DiveMaster and Captain Jade has worn many hats over nearly a decade of working on yachts, traveling the Caribbean, Eastern Mediterranean and New England. Every new destination she has gathered fresh flavors and new recipes to add to her ever evolving menus. A true mermaid, when not in the galley or on watch you can find her leading the snorkel trip in one of her many colorful tails!

Our family had such a memorable week on the MAHASATTVA. The yacht is exquisite in its beauty but what makes it exceptional is the crew who quickly became wonderful friends. Captain Magnus, Chef Jayde, First Mate Ian - you couldn´t have been more accommodating, the sail was wonderful, the food was exceptional, the coffee and drinks were fantastic. We can´t thank you enough for welcoming us, and allowing us to create cherished memories!

Skipper: 5/5
Comments:
An exceptional captain and human being - could not have been more knowledgeable, considerate and accommodating.

Rest of the crew: 5/5
Comments:
Jayde - our chef, was phenomenal in every aspect - the food looked beautiful and was some of the best we ever tasted (especially the crab cakes). She is a beautiful person inside and out.
Ian - our first mate, was terrific - he ensured everything was perfect and all of our needs were met, from morning coffee to happy hour drinks and evening wine.
The crew was perfection at its finest!

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc): 5/5
Comments:
Beautiful and comfortable - no reason to spend time in the cabin as there was plenty of room on the boat where you could enjoy time with family and friends or be by yourself to read a book or self reflect.

How would you qualify the itinerary: 5/5
Comments:
For the first time in our lives, we wanted no agenda - and that is what we had - no agenda/itinerary; we sailed when we were done swimming and kayaking, we ate when we were hungry - we never really knew what time it was unless we smelled the wonderful aromas from the kitchen! - PERFECT!

Thank you ever so much for arranging our vacation trip on Mahasattva. We are on our way home and still in a state of euphoria. The boat is beautiful; it’s new and maintained to perfection.The crew attended to our every desire and anticipated our pleasures way beyond our expectations. The chef worked around our dietary request (gluten-free) and made each meal a culinary treasure. The crew were fun and engaging but respected our privacy when we wanted to be alone. The skipper was expert, flexible and kept us informed at the ideal level for each of us. This was the best vacation we’ve ever had; we’ll be doing it again and highly recommend it to your other clients. I’d be happy to talk with prospective boaters if it’s helpful to you
