TOP YACHT CHARTER CHEFS-VIRGIN ISLANDS CULINARY COMPETITION 2015

Award-Winning Crewed Yacht Charter Chef NiaOne of the real strengths in the crewed charter yacht industry in the Virgin Islands is the abundance of highly talented chefs. You’d never dream that we served over 90,000 meals in a 3'x6’ galley during our tenure as professional charter yacht crew. But, it’s a fact. We did! Along the way, we discovered that we had a real passion for competing in the culinary competitions for yachts. Honored by 11 awards, these competitions gave us a strong presence in the industry. 

We’d like to continue the promotion of talented, hard-working chefs aboard charter yachts in the U.S. Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands by featuring them on this page. These shows brings together charter yacht brokers from around the world, crews with their yachts and industry support business representatives. With daytime viewing, evening socials and a myriad of competitions, it is the perfect venue for crews to launch into an active charter season.
