Sea Chateau Description

Sea Chateau is a Voyage 50 Mayotte Catamaran. It was especially designed by famed Naval Architect Alexander Simonis for fast, comfortable and fun island charters. Its extra wide beam offers outstanding stability, safety and exceptional space in its four staterooms with queen beds and en suite heads, huge saloon, cockpit and decks. The beautiful gourmet upper level galley shares its large panoramic-view windows with the saloon and bar that form an exceptional airy and bright integrated entertainment area, where you, your family and friends will enjoy the vacation of a life time. And when it comes to having fun in the water, the large non skid aft deck, and the two sugar scoop swim platforms with large s/s ladders and handrails make it extremely easy and safe for everyone to get in and out of the water and take part in all the fun. It also makes getting in and out of the dinghy a breeze. No stress, no worries, all fun and enjoyment.

Barend (Byron) Groenewald grew up in Paarl, a beautiful small town in the wine country outside of Cape Town. Growing up with a very adventurous family, he had the privilege of enjoying the ocean and all it had to offer from a young age. At the age of 18, he pursued a dream of obtaining a captain´s license, which led to 10 years of experience sailing the worlds oceans as a professional, captaining vessels from sailing monohulls, catamarans, and power yachts.

Byron´s main passion in life is to share his love of the ocean with others that feel the same and expose those who have never had the chance. With his expertise in all water sports ranging from sailing, diving, wake boarding, waterskiing, free diving and fishing just to name a few. He can accommodate all levels of skill and a varying age group in enjoying the ocean and all it has to offer. Byron´s qualifications in the industry make him a great host and teacher in and on the ocean. Having completed his RYA Yachtmaster Ocean and Instructor courses, PADI Rescue Diver and wakeboard/ ski instructor, he is sure to assist all levels from beginner to advanced water sports enthusiast, ensuring that everyone gets the most out of the great wonders the ocean has to offer us.

After exploring and working in destinations about which he had always dreamt (the coast of Africa, the Caribbean, Mediterranean and most of South East Asia), Byron finally had the means to purchase his own sailing catamaran and pursuing his lifelong dream; chartering the beautiful South African-built sailing catamaran SEA CHATEAU.

If you can´t find Byron in or on the water, he surely can be found exploring the beautiful islands, always looking for the off-the-beaten-path hidden gems, or interacting with the vibrant locals on the islands, soaking in as much information and culture as possible.

Chef/first mate Dianne is American and grew up near Cape Cod Massachusetts where she obtained a degree from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts in Counseling with a specialization in Special Education. Her passion for travel landed her a job as a therapist on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands in 2012, where she met Captain Byron. Her love for cooking started at an early age, being exposed to New England seafood and a family who loved fishing and being on the sea.

After working in the fine dining industry under world renowned chefs, Dianne decided to bring her passion for outstanding cuisine to Sea Chateau, focusing on freshness and local cuisine, striving to make Sea Chateau one of the most sought after charter yachts in the Caribbean, and sharing with guests why she fell in love with natures little secrets.
