True Story Crew Profile
Captain Martin Liscinsky & Chef Tamara Chepel
Originally from a city close to the Tatra mountains in Slovakia, Martin has always had a passion for adventure, sports and the great outdoors. He grew up mountain biking, white water rafting, climbing and would try any other sport he could involve himself in. At age 13 Martin travelled to Croatia where he was introduced to sailing - he was totally hooked on the sport and lifestyle. Martin moved to the UK aged 18 to begin a career as a chef which took him all over Europe including Switzerland, Scotland, France and Slovakia. He worked in high class fine dining restaurants and enjoyed the creativity and travel associated with being a chef. Despite enjoying his nice and successful career, Martins heart was still dreaming about being on the sea. When he realized he loves sailing more than cooking, he decided for a change and moved to Croatia to join the yachting industry. What was supposed be one season job became a lifestyle and Martin had never been happier. Being a Captain fulfilled everything he could dream of: freedom, traveling, outdoors and still bit of cooking, especially when the steaks are on the grill!
Originally from Australia, Tamara was brought up in the city of Sydney. Her parents had a passion for food, travel and entertaining, most weekends were spent with family and friends either enjoying the outdoors, exploring her grandparent’s farm or joining big family gatherings - all of which was based around food, feasting, making a bonfire or BBQ and spending time together. These memories strongly shaped Tamara’s love for chartering and cheffing- there really is nothing more magical than sharing a delicious meal with family and friends in a beautiful place! Prior to finding yachting Tamara studied at university and had a career as an Occupational Therapist in Sydney and London. However a few years into her career it was too late to shake off the travel bug and on a trip to Croatia she met Martin - who invited her to join him in his escapades and she never looked back!
Tamara and Martin met in Croatia in 2018 in the small town of Korcula. They quickly realised that despite being from different sides of the world they shared the same love for travel, sailing, experiencing different cultures (and food!), the ocean and being around family and friends. They backpacked Asia for seven months as the first real relationship test then returned to the Mediterranean where they worked on sailing yachts in Greece, Croatia, Italy, Turkey and Montenegro. After two seasons of enjoying the Mediterranean they set off to the Caribbean where they have worked in the British Virgin islands and some surrounding Caribbean countries including St Martin and Antigua. Tamara and Martin feel as though they have the best job in the world, chartering yachts and experiencing the ocean in all its glorious beauty while meeting new and returning guests and preparing wholesome meals to match the experience!
Time spent with Tamara and Martin on True Story will follow the philosophy that a perfect charter includes sailing, exploring, relaxing and truly taking the time to experience the islands in the way which suits their guests. They create a relaxed and welcoming and safe environment, aiming to make the charter personalised to each guests needs. Tamara and Martin have a passion for underwater life and believe the world below is one of the best things about the BVI! They are personable and accommodating and have a true passion and interest in people, adventure, and sailing and love nothing more than to share this with their guests. Their shared love of food and culture means they are excited to include the best local produce and create delicious wholesome meals for their guests! Together this energetic couple is looking forward to the next chapter of True Story, and can not wait to welcome you aboard!
