GYPSY PRINCESS Crew Profile
Achilleas | skipper
Achilleas began his sailing career when he was 22 years old. After he finished his studies he decided to make sailing his profession and he acquired his R.Y.A. Yachtmaster diploma. Since then he sailed extensively the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and he crossed the Atlantic twice.
He has built an extensive experience over the years. Besides working as a freelance skipper, Achilleas was a base manager for different companies incl. Yanmar, Dufour and Istion, where he acquired his technical knowledge of yachts and hands-on problem solving attitude.
Today Achilleas has sailed about 100.000 nautical miles. After his second and recent Atlantic crossing on a 62 feet catamaran, Achilleas worked as skipper on this yacht in South of France, Corsica and Sardinia.
Besides Greek, he speaks fluent English, good French and has some knowledge of Italian.
Cleo | Cook, hostess
Cleo has a passion for cooking since she was 16. She traveled to different countries known for their gastronomic cuisine or well-known vineyards, where each time she discovered new tastes and different ways of preparing delightful dishes.
After 10 years working in Belgium, Cleo decided to leave the city of Antwerp behind her and moved to Samos island in 2010 to work as a hostess on charter catamarans. In the last 3 years she acquired her Belgian sailing diploma and a lot of experience covering many miles in the Mediterranean, assisting in deliveries and working on charters. In 2011 she left Greece to work as cook on a 62 feet catamaran and made her first Atlantic crossing together with Achilleas.
Combining her love for sailing, being on the water with her passion for cooking, Cleo doubts there’s any better way to live for her.
Cleo’s mother tongue is Flemish and she speaks fluent English and French.

Where to begin....I guess from the beginning. From the moment we were greeted and stepped onto the boat we knew we were in paradise and starting a dream vacation.
We will always have many wonderful momories from tis trip. Paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling and a very memorable trip to the Baths!
Then of course the dinghy rides to dinner in our dresses and hoping we don't get splashed!

- Bitter End Newyear celebration - The dancing Greek showed us his moves!!
- All days delicious food and drinks (Gypsy Princess Painkillers yum yum)

Thank you for the amazing trip aboard your beautiful yacht. The whole experience was surprising: the food was wonderful, the sailing exceptional! Cleo’s cooking was innovative and gourmet, better than any restaurant we ate in! Achilleas is a first class seaman and skipper who is skilled and familiar wit hall seafaring tasks.
The Gypsy princess is definitely more a Princess than a Gypsy! We really built a friendship during our short time on board and we hope to see you both again in the near future!
