Crew of MARE BLU|Chef Chef

Captain: Willem Knoetze

CAPTAIN WILLEM KNOETZE
Willem Knoetze is a Captain that is very easy to warm up to. He has an endearing smile, an infectious laugh, and guests know right away they are in very capable hands. His in-water experience began as a child; going fishing, building rafts, and playing pirate games in the rivers and lakes around the family farm with his brother and sisters. As an expert seaman, scuba diver, and amateur treasure hunter, his playful pirate spirit still runs deep.

Will’s tight-knit family, most especially his uncle, inspired his love of the ocean. He says, “Despite having a great job in the IT industry, I had to leave to follow my passion for sailing. Since I was young I loved the ocean above and below the surface. The oceans kept on pulling so I jumped (in) at the opportunity and found my calling in life.” He is also a history buff, and snorkeling, spear fishing and underwater photography enthusiast. Fellow enthusiasts aboard MARE BLU can anticipate some truly memorable experiences.

Will has captained many charter yachts throughout the Caribbean; St. Maarten, Guadeloupe, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Panama, Grand Turk and the Bahamas, He says, “MARE BLU is a superb power catamaran, ideal for island-hopping and exploring. The yacht has spacious accommodations and fantastic deck space, loads of toys, and a super friendly, knowledgeable crew dedicated to memorable moments and unforgettable holidays for guests.” That all adds up to one fabulous charter!


NICOLE BOWMAN, CHEF/STEWARDESS
Nicole is a Florida girl with a natural born love of sun and sea. She practically grew up in the surf and has always been mesmerized by the ocean and the creatures that live in it. Nicole was destined for the yacht charter industry. She loves boating, diving, water sports, and most of all working with people. She says, “Being on the water is second nature to me. There is nothing more amazing than waking up every morning in a beautiful tropical paradise!”

Nicole is a highly skilled chef. She holds a Certificate of Professional Cookery from the prestigious Ashburton Chefs Academy with an Accredited QCF Level 2 Award in Culinary Skills and HABC Highfield Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering. She also excels as a stewardess. She has been organizing parties, vacations, celebrations and been hostess to friends and family for years. She anticipates guests needs and gives them continual attention to make their vacation as fun, easy and as elaxing as possible. She uses her funniest yacht-related incident as prudent advice to first time charter guests: Don't board the dinghy and forget your shoes on the yacht. You will feel quite silly walking around town in a pair of (old/huge) crew flip flops!

Nicole is thrilled to be the chef/stew on MARE BLU, a speedy power catamaran with loads of toys and gear. She is a certified diver, excellent snorkeler and can hook a fish with a keen eye. If guests want a helping hand with their water sports fun, Nicole is ready to assist. Her goal is to help make every charter spectacular, above and below the water line.

MARE BLU Thank you - Comments from the Broker - New Year in the BVI
Willem and Nicole, thank you for the above and beyond effort from the very beginning and the terrific “ can do” attitude you both have. My clients felt the same way and my sincere thanks and appreciation for that! As I mentioned, they had never been to the US & BVI’s and had only chartered on a larger motor yacht before so I was a bit nervous. They absolutely enjoyed the charter, their itinerary and the power catamaran. I was relived and very happy to hear.

12-19 July, 2018 ~ Exceptional Virgins ~
We had the most amazing time on The Yacht with Captain Will, the most amazing Chef Nicole and the Remigator. Thank you for always showing us the “better side” of the islands, secret snorkel spots, catching lobsters, fun on the paddle boards, dancing all night on the Anegada, amazing dinners, etc. This was a trip of a lifetime! And the crew made it even better. It was really something special. My favorite beach was White Ba and my favorite island was Anegada.

Thank you! Until we meet again.

The best trip of my life!! In my 18 years I have never had so much fun with such exceptional people. The cooking is to die for!

July 2018 - Comments to the broker
The captain was kind, warm hearted, an expert in his field, safety first, a great sense of humor. The food was absolutely amazing! Nicole exceeded all expectations of cooking for all of us! Remi is kind and on top of things. He’s also smart and what a great swimmer! The crew became our friends and we had a magnificent time! Everything was fantastic! Immaculate and clean, spacious, great decor. We had so much fun planning each day with our team. Our kids had a ball and my husband really enjoyed the diving! What a fantastic chef!

This was an absolutely unforgettable trip! Not only was the boat amazing, the food out of this world, the team amazing, and the views breathtaking; we learned so much about the BVIs, different cultures and the team we were with.

The Yacht is simply a fantastic experience that we will do again with the most fantastic crew ever! Thank you so much Will, Nicole, and Remi!!

2-9 June, 2018 - Spectacular!!
This was our first family vacation on a boat and also in the BVI. Hands down everyone had a wonderful time. The boat was just perfect. We had a party of 8 that fit very comfortably. The awning upfront with the nets and chairs was just lovely. The cabins were spacious with compartments for everything. You can tell this boat was expertly custom built and appointed. It has a comfortable elegant feel. Sailing in the open water is almost like gliding. Awesome.

As much as we all liked the boat, it doesn’t compare to the crew. Will, Nicole and Remi absolutely made the trip magical. Will made sure we were taken care of from the moment we left for the boat. He gave us detailed instructions on how to navigate from the airport to the taxi’s and boat ferry to get to the boat. When we arrived, he swept us away to a secluded cove and the adventure began. At the beginning, Will and crew discussed options for the week and most importantly they listened to our interests for the vacation. After that, they took us on a journey of a lifetime.

Will’s knowledge and experience was most impressive. We all enjoyed watching him maneuver the boat with ease. His knowledge and stories of the islands were spectacular. It’s like he knew every cove and seaway in the whole BVI including the history. The amazing part was he has that knowledge all over the world. It was fun just hearing him talk about other places.

Nicole kept us all very well feed and happy. From meals to snacks to drinks, it was all first class. Her attention to detail made the trip. She obviously scoured over our preferences to ensure we were all well taken care of. It is a luxury to eat her meals and share her stories. She is full of life and a pleasure to be around.

Remi. What can I say. He is basically the kindest person I have ever met. He genuinely cares about everyone on the boat. Crew members included. He was always there ready to explore, help and have fun.

The The Yacht is simply the whole package: service, amenities, food, friendliness, experience and knowledge. Everything you want for a vacation. Spectacular!!!

Sincerely,
Shane, Julie and family
24-31 March, 2018 – BVIs – Precious Memories!
Will & Nicole,
Thank you for an amazing voyage!! Your attention to detail was incredible and made everyone feel right at home. This was truly an experience to remember with our children and friends. The Yacht is a beautiful vessel, but it was both of you that made the difference!

Thank you for making this one of, if not, the best adventure we’ve every taken! From swimming to hiking, to dancing and water sports! Everything was awesome. We loved making precious memories with our family and special friends that have become family. The laughter we shared will love on forever. We appreciate all the little details. Celebrating a special anniversary & graduation could not have been better. You are both beautiful human beings, thank you! If you are ever in Miami, let us know, our home is always open to you!

The “V” Family

P.S. Thanks so very much for being so awesome with the kids!!
September 2017 ~ Absolutely Amazing!
I wanted to take a few moments to share with you my appreciation and joy spending a week aboard The Yacht last week with David, my husband, Lars and other siblings. We had an amazing vacation on your beautiful boat! The design of the interior (spacious, inviting, but efficient) and exterior of the boat was perfect for a guest. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms were easy to move around in and the shower water was hot, and the common space in and outside of the boat accommodated all of our activities so well. We enjoyed taking advantage of all of the toys on the boat as well - scuba diving, paddle boating, swimming, sunbathing, yoga, and eating and drinking yummy food.

The icing on this journey was the crew. They were absolutely amazing!

We feel very fortunate to have spent a week on your the wonderful The Yacht! Thank you for sharing your dream boat with us!

July 2017 ~ Merci mes Amis!
THE YACHT is a beautiful, new and very comfortable sailing catamaran. The crew was the consummate hosts! We enjoyed every moment on board and our week ended much too soon! The meals were delicious and so beautifully presented! We look forward to sailing with you again in the Caribbean. Merci mes amis, àbientôt! - July 2017
3-10 June, 2017 ~ BVI
Thank you so much for our adventure in the BVI. Will & Nicole – You are the best! Best wishes to both of you and Happy Sailing!
Love Annie, Kyle & Charlie

Will & Nicole,
You thoroughly enabled our clan to be highly adventurous, extremely well fed and appreciative pirates for the week. We would easily select you and your CAT over a Russian super-yacht and crew of 70 any day of the week! One word sums up the whole week: AMAZING!
Best wishes to the two of you on your personal adventure.

18-24 March, 2017 ~ Virgins ~ A+ Experience!
A+ experience on Amazing. Captain Will and Nicole are terrific. They are clearly experienced sailors and very focused on providing a great customer experience.
We felt safe and very comfortable with them.
They are fantastic with children and transformed our 5 kids (who never spent time on a boat) into enthusiastic sailors and snorkelers.

We would happily book this crew on another charter in the future.
