She has always enjoyed entertaining and gained her formal culinary training at the Rosie Davies Cookery School and has since attended Ashburton Cookery School and the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York for specialty courses in Gluten free and Vegan cooking.
She has just completed a Diploma in Nutrition, with specialist modules in Sport and Exercise Nutrition, Pre and post-natal Nutrition and Childhood Nutrition.
In addition to this she has worked in a very fast paced restaurant just outside London, doing up to 4,000 covers per week.
She has been working in the yachting industry for the past 13 years, on a variety of yachts, mostly busy charter vessels in the Caribbean, US east coast and Mediterranean. This opportunity to travel and to expand her styles of cuisine, together with the demands of running a busy charter schedule have all added to her culinary repertoire.
Modern European and Asian style dishes are a specialty, but all of Melissa’s menus are tailored to her guests’ specific preferences and are created with a health conscious ethos.
When Melissa started her career in the Caribbean she quickly developed a love for the underwater environment and progressed to Dive master within a couple of seasons. She has since then been diving extensively in the Caribbean as well as in Thailand and Zanzibar, so you can feel in safe hands both above and below the water.
Captain – George Greathead
George, your Captain on Lir is from Essex, UK, and has been boating since his early teens.
Having grown up spending summers in and around St Tropez, France, on his families boats, he decided four years ago to turn his passion into a career on the water and has since progressed up the ranks and now feels no more at home than when he is at the helm. With such a love of the sea it was only natural that George wanted to add the qualifications to match his experience and established his career as a charter yacht captain.
George studied the Ocean Graduate Course at United Kingdom Sailing Academy where he gained his Commercially Endorsed YachtMaster Offshore. He enjoys tennis, waterskiing, saltwater fishing and is an advanced PADI diver.
This lead him to Florida and the Caribbean for his first position within a fleet of large yachts, starting on a 57 meter and quickly progressing to First Mate on 43 meter.
Following this he moved up to Captain, and has been running a variety of Catamarans, Motor Yachts and large Monohulls since.
George has both professional and recreational experience of the South of France, Italy, Elba, Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera areas in the Mediterranean as well as extensive sailing in the Caribbean, Bahamas and South Florida.
George and Melissa both love children and welcome families onboard. George is happy to entertain the children with beach games and fun packed days in and on the water. Meanwhile Melissa will more than happily cater to the children’s tastes so that they too have a vacation to remember.
Together George and Melissa will make sure you enjoy your vacation at your own pace. Either action packed and on the go, or if you prefer moving to the beat of a slower drum, George will happily make you one of his mouth watering cocktails while you indulge in reading a good book. However you want to spend your vacation, George and Melissa look forward to welcoming you onboard.
