Having lived on the East Coast, growing up in Cape Code and Martha's Vineyard, Trevor grew up sailing family boats and working on whale watching boats. After college, Trevor continued his love of working on the water by pursuing a career in yachting. He worked his way up from deckhand, mate/engineer, to captain on an array of cruising and racing yachts around the globe.

Chef: Natalie Jade Ray

As an avid sailor from an early age, Natalie advanced into competitive ocean sailing and crewed aboard sailboats around the world aboard racing, classic yachts, and luxury cruisers. Her grandfather and mother are both Cordon Bleu trained chefs, and their love of cooking rubbed off on Natalie. While at the San Francisco School of Art's MFA Photography program, she discovered by combining her three loves of photography, sailing and cooking, she could pursue a career in sailing using all three. As a personal chef, her goal is to provide culinary happiness to those on board whether chartering, racing, or on transatlantic deliveries. Her talent of provisioning and galley management with a creative Mediterranean cooking style ensures fresh, healthy meals with attention to dietary restrictions, such as vegan, paleo and gluten free.

This fun loving, competent duo work hard as a team to ensure you receive the best possible cruising experience once they welcome you aboard The Black Lion.

Testimonials

We took a 4-day cruise on Black Lion with captain Trevor and gourmet chef Natalie.  We invited 2 couples to join in celebrating my husband's 65th birthday.

The vessel is a beauty- with a spacious deck for festive lunches and dinners and a full Bimini to protect against the sun's intensity.

We had some foul weather, so spent time in the salon too. While older boats are beautiful in their own right, they can be dark below deck. Black Lion's salon had overhead and side windows, giving it light and airiness. The room was big and settees super comfortable. The colors/ upholstery throughout the boat were delightfully nautical, "happy", light colors.

Natalie and Trevor were terrific "hosts" - extremely friendly, helpful and attentive to our needs.  They bent over backwards to ensure we had a lovely time.  They've crewed extensively on significant yachts, affording them deep experience, skill and appreciation for hospitality.

We relied on Trevor's judgment and expertise and always felt comfortable with his seamanship, especially tested on a day with particularly high winds. Natalie is an excellent chef, creating healthy, delicious meals which she presented artfully as well.

In sum, our mini celebration was a huge success.  My husband, an experienced sailor, was thrilled with his first charter, and we - and all our guests - had an amazing time. For the week after, we were all still basking in the glow of a very good time indeed.
