Samsara Crew Profile

Crew Number2
CaptainMicha Moeller
SpeaksEnglish, Italian, Spanish and French.
Chef / First Mate
Chef / First MateCharly Podesta

Micha was born 1971 at the North Sea coast of Germany. His love for the sea began at a young age and he learned to sail in one of the most difficult and dangerous sailing areas in the world. He crossed the North Atlantic Ocean single-handed and non-stop in both directions (Southern Atlantic Route & Northern Atlantic Route), sailed around the world twice and won various regattas. In 2019, the sailing magazine ´Multihull World´ dedicated an 8-page report of him after he lost his boat ´Samsara 1´ in Hurricane ´Barry´ and survived 4 days in the open sea floating on a raft which he made of fenders. After his rescue by the Containership BBC Orinocco, he immediately bought a new sailing catamaran and continued his circumnavigation.

Micha is a licensed airline pilot and flew for SWISS Int´ Airline and AirBerlin for many years, but his true passion is the sea and his endless knowledge about sailing and the sea is unmatched. He is well known in the sailing community as a great sailor, a heavy weather specialist and very popular for his willingness to share his knowledge with others.

Even experienced sailors enjoy trips with Micha as captain and book him to expand their own skills.

Micha is known for his dry sense of humor and loves to introduce his guests to boat life and the adventure of the sea.

Charly was born in Milano, Italy and came at the age of 2 to Florida in the United States. He grew up in his parent´s food brokerage company and learned the intricacies of first-class foods at an early age. After attending the Northwood University of Texas where he studied hospitality management and culinary art, he started his own catering business where he served the concert and film industry and cooked for many well-known stars. A few years later he accepted the offer of the famous designer Gianni Versace and became his personal chef and US house manager. He has also worked personally for stars such as Cher, Luciano Pavarotti, Madonna and many others. Cher calls him ´The King of Bolognese´ and Anna Wintour (known for her aloof and demanding personality) calls him ´Brilliant´. The ´Ocean Drive Magazine´ honored Charly in an article and called him ´The Man who made Miami´ and ´The Sun Sentinel´ named him ´The Chef of the month´.

Born in Italy his cooking style is Italian influenced, but his main talent is to create unbelievable delicious meals from easy ingredients and his love that he puts in every dish he creates.

Charly has a very open and lovable personality and loves sharing his stories and experiences with his guests. He loves to pamper his guests and show them the adventure and peace of boat life.

Why the boat name ?

Samsara comes from Buddhism and means both ´constant wandering´ and rebirth.

Micha chose this name for his first catamaran because it best describes what Micha´s future life should look like and how he felt after he left ´normal´ life. After Micha & Charly decided to sail the world together, they quickly agreed that the new boat should be called “Samsara´ too.

Samsara Guest Reviews

April 2024

It was truly a memorable vacation and I am so happy that we ended up on Samsara.

I HIGHLY recommend sailing on Samsara for your future clients. Truly one of the best vacations we have had and we have taken many trips. Charly pampered us from morning til night with his delicious meals and his endearing personality made us feel right at home instantly. From the moment he greeted us we were at ease.

We knew we were good hands on the boat with Captain Micha. Wow! What an experienced sailor in every way and he made us feel at ease immediately. He took us onbeautiful sails each day andto absolutely wonderful snorkeling spots and gorgeous bays to spend the night.

These two really are a dynamic duo and I couldn’t recommend it enough to join them aboard Samsara.

I am writing to express our profound gratitude and share our extraordinary experience aboard the Sailing Samsara. It´s not every day that we come across a journey so memorable that it compels us to put pen to paper, or in this case, fingers to keyboard. From the moment we set sail, Micha and Charly proved themselves to be more than just a proficient team; they were truly masters of their craft. Micha´s nautical expertise instilled in us a deep sense of safety and confidence, allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in the beauty and serenity of the USVI without a single worry. His adept navigation and skillful handling of Samsara were nothing short of impressive. Charly, on the other hand, provided a level of concierge service that went above and beyond our expectations. His attention to detail, anticipation of our needs, and ability to make us feel pampered and cared for added an extra layer of luxury to our adventure. It was evident that both Micha and Charly are passionate about what they do, and their synergy as a team made our experience all the more special. It is rare to encounter such a harmonious blend of professionalism, skill, and hospitality. We felt genuinely taken care of at every turn, never once having to worry about our well-being or enjoyment. This peace of mind allowed us to fully engage with the stunning surroundings and cherish each moment spent on board. We wanted to ensure that you knew just how much we appreciated the opportunity to sail with Micha and Charly. Their exceptional service and dedication have left a lasting impression on us, and we are already looking forward to our next adventure with them. Thank you once again for facilitating this unforgettable journey. We cannot wait to return to the seas under the guidance of such a remarkable crew.
Warmest regards,
Nicole & Craig Zuber

December 2023

We had the luck to stay with Micha and Charlie for one week in St. Maarten and we had the time off our life. Charlie is a true angel and made all our wishes real. His dishes are finger licking good and we had so much fun by looking over his shoulder during his cooking. Micha made our sailing trips a special experience and it was so much fun and peaceful at the same time. We are still talking about this vacation and hoping to come back to Samsara when she arrives in the pacific ocean.

November 2023

We booked Samsara for our first Boat Charter in the Grenadines and Micha & Charly made our stay unbelievable and far above what we were expecting. Samsara is an amazing catamaran and the way Micha uses her potential to steer her through the sea was the most impressing experience we ever had on a boat. Micha and Charly took us to places that we only knew from TV and travel catalogs and couldn´t believe they really exist. Charly´s food is an experience and it was all very delicious. The entire trip was a dream come true and we can´t wait to book Samsara again.
