Hello, I'm Chantelle

 Estate Manager & Chef at your service  

“I've sailed over 8200 NM as a cook and all my maritime documents are up to date. I’ve 14 years’ hospitality & management experience across 30 countries. I studied Event Management then specialized in the Film & Fashion industry. I hosted a travel & cooking TV show in China. During my 4 years in Asia I won awards for my work. I was recently a finalist in a national TV baking & cooking competition “Taste Master”. I’ve worked with international A-list celebrities, royalty, politicians, billionaire entrepreneurs & UHNW families. Prior to Covid I worked for the same company for 7 years. I grew up by the ocean in a boarding school (age 9-21) so I’m comfortable living & working with the same crew. I did my apprenticeship at the Super Yacht Culinary Academy under Executive Chef Brett Nussey in 2022. I’m a bubbly person with a passion for cooking in an organised and creative environment.

I’m available immediately for a land or sea position. I’m open to a Temp, Seasonal, Rotational or Permanent contract. I enjoy working on both Motor Yachts and Sail Yachts of all sizes. I’d be happy to join a Private, Charter or Delivery vessel. I come with a tool kit ready to work. I'm looking forward to the next adventure!”
