Crew
CrewVaitu Kervella
NationalityFrench


Name: Michael Gooding
Position: Captain
Nationality: Australian
Description:
PREVIOUS YACHTS: M/Y KERI LEE, M/Y KERI LEE III, M/Y SILENTWORLD II

MICHAEL HAS CRUISED: South Pacific (extensively!), East and North Coast Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand. Atlantic Ocean & Indian Ocean, Carribean, Mediterranean.

´There is no place like the Pacific. With Australia in the West and Tahiti in the East, the possibilities of remote locations with abundance of marine life and cultural adventures epitomises encounters of excellence. Being in the ocean provides a natural therapy for the soul´.
Michael hails from the Sunshine Coast in Australia and has come from a vast array of superyachts and management experience. Prior to SILENTWORLD he was Captain onboard the vessel SILENT WORLD II among others and built a reputation of bringing excellence to the experience you have onboard. Michael has been with his Owners for 7 years now, and previously was also employed by 5-star island resort Hayman Island as the Marine Manager.

He has combined these assets to focus on bringing a sense of team spirit on board. Michael considers these are key components to provide guests with an experience that exceeds expectations. One of Michael´s favourite memories was around Vanuatu: diving in remote locations, and sailing past volcanic islands with Lava flowing into the water (a truly humbling experience). French Polynesia has since stolen his sailor’s heart since, with its combination of welcoming embrace, natural beauty and mana (spirit). Such incredible locations offer the capacity to create an emotional connection between his guest’s vacation and the cultural and physical identity of the region.

Michael loves creating itineraries for guests, taking them to areas that will leave memories for a lifetime, and he encourages his crew to do the same. ´Providing experiences beyond expectations in a marine environment is what I have found as a calling and bringing that to fruition is the reward´.
When he is not on board SILENTWORLD, Michael´s hobbies include running (he has competed in triathlons), riding his bike, swimming, he has great photography skills with his underwater camera, and is a Dive Master. Michael embraces new technology and has recently found a new passion with his drone, creating incredible videos of SILENTWORLD’s life on board.

One could say Danny has already lived several lives – or is living more than one. With only a little more than thirty years on Planet Earth, this young Chef has built up to being a recognised talent on worldwide superyachts and joins SILENTWORLD in 2019 in Tahiti. Born and raised on Waiheke Island in New Zealand, it is no surprise that Danny’s love for the sea and art of cuisine ignited his sense of travel on luxury yachts since 2010: the South Pacific, in Papua New Guinea and most recently Tonga, in Australia, and around the Mediterranean and Caribbean taking guests on many gustative journeys.
His first superyacht and sole Chef position was on board no less than 42m M/Y COMO, and he grew into the industry over 9 years, even consulting for new build projects (whilst on board S/Y MONDANGO) and adding many valuable strings to his bow. Danny has gained extensive experience with vegan and vegetarian cuisine for special diets, sharpened his skills in kosher cuisine whilst sailing in regattas around the Caribbean, and most recently visited Tokyo (Japan) to study the traditional art of Sushi preparationand learn to use and maintain a single bladed Japanese knife set.
When not on board, well Danny is… sailing with his own 43ft yacht ROCKSTAR (they circumnavigated in 2018), kitesurfing, diving (PADI Open Water), freediving, surfing and wakeboarding, or snowboarding.
His favourite cruising paradises are French Polynesia and the Marshall Islands.
