John Crafford grew up on a farm near the Kruger Park in northeastern South Africa. Surrounded by acres of wilderness, he learned to ride a motorcycle before he could ride a bicycle. Growing up he spent loads of free time aboard the family boat catching fish and lobster and having fun. The family always stayed near the ocean. When John was not out with them on the boat he was honing his surfing skills. He remembers, "As a kid I always used to sit on the rocks after surfing and wish I had a yacht that I could just sail straight toward the horizon until I hit land again."
John has sailed extensively throughout the Bahamas and the Caribbean including St Martin, St Barth's, Anguilla, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Guadeloupe. He is a keen diver and is especially enthusiastic about charter guests who want to explore the undersea world. When underway with a nice stiff breeze, he goes full sail, letting the yacht slice through the waves, often with guests enjoying a turn at the helm. At the end of an exciting day there's nothing more sublime than relaxing on the aft deck, tropical cocktail in hand, and discussing tomorrow's adventures.
As a charter Captain, John's goal is to create a homey environment where people feel safe and comfortable. "People have always complemented us on how relaxed they felt on our yacht. We aim to create a vacation where CEO's, doctors, and parents can just let go and feel like kids again." His motto: A positive life is a happy life.
CHEF/MATE SHIRELLE PARIS
Shirelle was raised in Israel, in a small town where people cared a lot about nature. Her family grew their own organic fruits and vegetables. She believes that there is no substitute for the freshest, local ingredients when designing a menu. When she was 20 years old she moved to a picturesque surfing town in the coast. There, she was completely captivated by the vastness and beauty of the Mediterranean Sea. She plunged into water sports with zeal; sailing, paddle boarding, diving, and snorkeling.
On shore, cooking was always an important event in her family. She recalls, "We always used to host a lot of guests for dinner. From the time that I was a young kid I was there to help my mother with meal preparation for the crowd. I enjoyed being in the kitchen with her. She was a very talented, creative cook and taught me all different types of cuisine from all over the world." While Shirelle's favorite culinary style is Mediterranean, she can easily cater to lots of different preferences, from Asian cuisine to American comfort food. In fact, Shirelle majored in nutrition and holistic studies in college and has expertise in special diets.
As a stewardess, Shirelle aims to make Amazing Blues a home away from home for her guests. The yacht has a superb layout, whether guests want to be together, or find a little personal space. There are lots of toys on board and Shirelle is a patient instructor for guests who want to try something new. She says, "I am really relaxed and easy going. Whatever guests need I'm there for them. I love making people happy and serving great food is my way to show happiness and love.
