Wanderlust Crew Profile
Hailing from Limpopo in South Africa, Francois comes from a small farming town in the Afrikaans area of the country. He grew up close to the nature and the breathtaking wildlife of the area, and has carried his love of the outdoors throughout his life.
Francois began his maritime career working as a commercial diver, flown out to the BVI to assist in the mass clean up and yacht salvage in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. As a qualified class 2 Commercial Bell Diver he is more than comfortable below sea level, and has recently transferred his skills to qualify as a Dive Master, ensuring all guests are in more than safe and experienced hands.
One of his proudest achievements is his involvement with a non-profit charity in the BVI creating artificial reefs and interactive dive sites including the sunken wreck of the ‘Willy T´ and ´Sharkplano´, he has unwaivered local knowledge of the sites and will ensure to show you the very best spots.
Being an incredibly calm and collected character, Francois will always be at your service with a smile and will make sure his guests feel well attended to and safe, whilst giving them their own tailored trip of a lifetime.

Wanderlust Guest Reviews
Jan BVI 2023 Charter
Dear Capt and Kate,
We can´t thank you enough for creating a spectacular week for all of us. You both were perfect hosts and went above and beyond.
Glenn and I loved our time on the Hobe cat and I cant thank you enough for not flipping it while I was on.
The meals you created were beyond and one was better than the next.
We loved exploring Anegada with you, so glad we were able to make it there. We are so lucky to have been your maiden voyage. You both will be very successful and we wish you all the best in the future!
Lisa and Glenn
PS I will keep working on my napkin folding. thank you for the lessons.
Dear Kate and Captain,
Thank you Thank you for a fabulous voyage! Truly everything was fantastic. The food was beyond what we expected and delicious!
The boat was kept so clean and neat. The excursions were all so well planned and enjoyable. Hard to focus on one highlight when everything was a new, fun, and yummy experience. You guys are a great team!
Thank you for everything and smooth sailing!
Kathy and Henry
2023 arrived with a gift-Wanderlust arrived in time for our group to be their first charter!
Captain Francois and Chef and amazing first mate Kate are experts at what they do, but besides being a wonderful crew-they made us feel cared for and shared their knowledge and love of sailing, boating, and the BVI.
Thank you for an amazing week!
-Martia and Bob
