Sea Boss Crew Profile
Darrel grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he spent his time prowling the suburban jungles and raising his pet lion, Chaos. He also managed to actually finish school, and holds degrees in actuarial science, accounting and company law, as well as being a lieutenant in the South African National Defense Force.
In 2003 he decided to sell his house, quit the rat race, and go to sea. He moved to Cape Town in South Africa, to upgrade his sailing qualifications. After several months of sailing some of the roughest waters on the planet, he finished his qualifications, and holds a commercially-endorsed Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster Ocean Skipper´s ticket. He has lived and sailed in the Caribbean for the past eight years, sailing on a variety of vessels in the charter industry (from beautiful and graceful Oyster sailboats, to a 118ft motor yacht). His absolute favourite, though, is Sea Boss. Because she´s awesome. He has extensive sailing experience throughout the Caribbean, and knows where to find the best bars on most islands; essential knowledge for a charter-boat captain. His sailing adventures have taken him from sailing the Eastern US coastline, all the way through the Caribbean chain, and down to Venezuela and Columbia. In his travels he has swum with dolphins, had a 40-foot humpback whale breach right next to (and almost land on) his boat, and sailed through a hurricane. He is keen to experience two of these three things again. He is an experienced and seasoned sailor, with over 35,000 nautical miles in his log book on multiple yacht types. Darrel is a keen water sports fan, and loves to water-ski, wakeboard, kite board and dive. He loves any excuse to get out on the water, and would be more than happy to get involved with any of the water-sport activities offered on the boat. Or any games, really ´ he is a child at heart and loves to play.
Around the start of 2016, Darrel sadly lost his valiant struggle to maintain his bachelor lifestyle, and succumbed to the wily ways of Jenn, the chef on Sea Boss. They now live in connubial bliss, and there is an obvious peace and harmony on board preserved mainly by him doing everything she tells him to. Theirs is a love and friendship based on mutual respect, a profound inner connection, and knowing that the other person knows way too many of your secrets for you to ever let them out of your sight. We have high hopes for this one.
Jenn grew up in Canada (in a well-known haunted house, no less!) but has strong family ties in the islands. She visited the British Virgin Islands for the twenty years, and took the leap three years ago to move and become a local. This has worked out well, as she brings her considerable experience and skill in the hospitality and food industry on board. She has had a fabulous year on Sea Boss and the guests continue to rave about her gourmet cuisine and out-standing people skills.
Jenn comes from a family of chefs, and has worked in the hospitality industry for many years. Her experience comes from formal training and hands-on learning. In addition to her delicious culinary creations, she also boasts some mean mixologist skills, and there is an ongoing contest on board as to who mixes the best drinks – thus far, Jenn’s Mai Thai leads the polls, with Darrel’s margarita a close second. Either way, the guests win.
Jenn is a versatile chef who works closely with guests to come up with a charter menu tailored to their personal preferences. She enjoys using locally-grown foodstuffs, and tries to incorporate a farm-to-table approach in her cooking. She has amazing contacts and local suppliers down here that assist in this, and she strives to incorporate healthy and wholesome nutrition in her delicious meals. Her favourite culinary creations are classics with a twist. Her menu planning skills are second to none and she will make sure everyone is satisfied at mealtime.
A keen surfer and beach bum, Jenn’s love of the water and the island life are a perfect fit for the charter lifestyle. Combine that, with her warm and caring nature, and it makes her everyone’s favourite crew member. She is a warm, genuine, friendly soul, and we are very happy to have her on board as part of our team.

Sea Boss Guest Reviews
Holiday Season 2017 guests aboard SEA BOSS said:
Jenn and Darrel,
After a very stressful and busy year, we were looking forward to our time on the Sea Boss more than ever.
We were hoping to show our kids the wonders and the beauty of the BVI, but Hurricane Irma and Maria had other plans. As disappointed as we were, we were thrilled to be able to explore the Exumas in the Bahamas! What an amazing place! The BVI will always have our hearts but the Exumas is a close second.
Thank you for the relaxation, fun, food and laughter, we can’t thank you ENOUGH!!
-Swimming with nurse sharks.
-Urgent care on Christmas for stitches!
-Isabel (4yrs old)- yeah she’s real “I’m allergic to salad”
-For you both!
And we will see you soon!

Dear Darrel and Jenn,
Thank you just doesn´t seem enough for making the trip that we hoped would happen- happen! On the heels of the devastation from Irma and Maria and the amazing humanitarian work the two of you did aboard Sea Boss... You hosted Patty and I for our 30th wedding anniversary.
Jenn, you were such a treat. Nothing beats waking to the sounds of you in the kitchen and the smell of another amazing breakfast. You faced your fears and tackled the eggs benedict on day 1... Both Patty´s and your personal favourite. (Jenn´s disclaimer- ´whether Kraft Dinner or Eggs Benedict- I am SO nervous to make a guests all time favourite meal, even if I´ve made it a hundred times´) Then meal after meal, just nailed it: bolognese, mahi reubens, pulled pork and fish tacos, salmon fillet.. And we will never forget the dumbest thing we said on the charter to you ´Uh, Jenn.. We think we´re gonna skip or share some desserts´... No way!
And Captain Darrel.. Right off the bat he says to Patty ´So Patty, there are two things I have to tell you about swimming in the Bahamas. 1. There´s a strong current.´ She says ´I don´t care about that. But is the 2nd thing is there are sharks?´ ´Yup!´ But then somehow Darrel coached and persuaded Patty to actually swim with them and touch them! Followed shortly by urging her and helping her swim under the jagged coral and experience the Thunderball Grotto. That´s Darrel, confident and all knowing (just ask him).
But by far our highlight aboard Sea Boss for the second time, was our renewal. The look on Patty´s face as we came out of the Bubbling Pond to see the breathtakingly gorgeous alter Jenn and Darrel had built with fresh flowers, white ribbons, rocks in a heart, and a pearl in a sand filled shell for our 30!!! Quite simply a moment we will remember for the rest of our lives! Darrel and Jenn, you are both amazing and will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Until next time,
Patty and Bill

October, 2016 guests on SEA BOSS say:
My wife and I had the opportunity to spend several days on Sea Boss this past fall and our experience blew away our expectations!
We arrived in St. Thomas and were met at the airport by Sea Boss captain, Darrel Hearne, who had a car waiting for us. We headed to Yacht Haven Grand Marina where Sea Boss was docked, and were met by Jenn, our wonderful Chef. After a delicious lunch (exceptional food would be the theme throughout our stay), we were on our way to lovely Peter Island. During the trip, we enjoyed the excellent ride of the Horizon 60 catamaran and became acquainted with the various lounging areas aboard. The captain anchored us in a discrete but protected area of the bay, and after some delightful snorkelling, we spent a relaxing afternoon ashore at Peter Island where we managed to squeeze in a little shopping. We returned to Sea Boss for a 4 course dinner and spent a peaceful night aboard.
The following day, after an amazing breakfast, we cruised to Scrub Island, enjoying the comfortable and quiet ride of the catamaran. In what seemed like no time, we anchored in a secluded but well protected spot just west of the Scrub. The very experienced, captain Darrel, again used his local knowledge to place us in the perfect spot! We enjoyed time in Scrub Island’s 2 level pool before returning to the boat to enjoy the water toys. Later we took the very fast dingy for a tour of the island before returning to the boat for yet another wonderful meal while enjoying the company of the captain Darrel and chef Jenn!
The following morning we had to return to St Thomas but even that trip was memorable. Darrel used his rather extensive knowledge of the islands to give us a waterfront tour, including interesting historical facts. It was a lovely way to spend the day.
Overall we could not have picked a better boat for the trip. Captain Darrel was professional and knowledgeable, Chef Jenn prepared amazing meals, snacks and boat drinks, and the accommodations were perfect. They were the very best of hosts! The master stateroom rivals what you would find on a 100’ yacht, and the stability of the catamaran while anchored is unbeatable. Needless to say, we have already booked a week this summer so the family can experience Sea Boss!

Darrel and Jenn,
Thank you so much for creating such a special and memorable experience for M, the kids and I. Our expectations were blown away with every aspect of the trip. From the comfort of Sea Boss to a great itinerary, to Darrel´s question each morning (´So, what do you want to do today?´) to Jenn´s phenomenal cooking, and attention to every detail by both of you. J and L had a great time and a well deserved break before their senior year in college. Gabriel tested every angle of his bed during his 20 hr/day koala style sleep and ´nap´ sessions, M fell in love with boating and staying overnight at the beautiful and calm coves that you found for us. Form me, it was a way of experiencing the BVI as I never had before, and simply loved it. I also came out of the trip with a few change orders for our new boat :-)
I hope we will see you again soon and thanks for this amazing experience!

Every single second exceeded our expectations! Not only do you have a beautiful yacht but combined with such a knowledgeable and experienced crew makes for an unforgettable trip.
Jenn your food was simply amazing and you are absolutely adorable!!
Darrel, it was great meeting and getting to know you two, it added so much more to the experience. From the moment you picked us up in St. John we knew it was going to be a fabulous adventure!! (You can bet we won´t just ´talk´ about coming back!)

Wow, ´exceeding my expectations´ is a serious understatement. You coordinated 2 boats, 12 people, visitors, and young adults eager to learn every possible water sport with ease. Ed and I looked forward to this, our last Spring Break with the college crowd, with such anticipation and you provided an experience filled with surprises. Patient instruction was given to all the paddle boarders, wake boarders, skiers, snorkelers, and divers. Darrel, your relaxed and ready for action demeanour allowed the group to go nonstop and fully appreciate the beauty and adventure of this beautiful ecosystem. Su, you literally anticipated every need: delicious and nutritious meals, creative and divine snacks, cocktails, creative tables, and party themes and every other comfort. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.´
Love Ed and Linda A.
´Wow, what a week! Thanks for showing us a great time for our spring break (woohoo!). Darrel´s wakeboard lessons, Su´s amazing meals and snacks, combined with your personalities made this the best vacation yet. Thanks so much for everything, we´ll be back! See you soon!´
´Thanks for the best spring break ever! Y´all were so much fun and kept our stomachs very satisfied and happy!´
´You guys are like really funny. And y´all were super nice to me pretty much all week. This has been my favourite week of my whole life. Seriously, you guys are great and I´m going to miss you a lot. Thank you for everything. Well I think it´s time for me to hit the old dusty trail.... ´
