Crew Profile

Captain: Marco Heitz

Marco is the consummate adventurer. He has done extensive wilderness and white water canoeing trips in remote regions of Canada, long distance bicycling trips, won a 160km cross-country ski marathon, toured over 70,000 km on a motorcycle just in the past three years, kite surfed in South America, and was a special forces diver and explosives expert in the Finnish navy. He has raced various classes of sailboats since his early childhood and competed at the national championship level. He has won several podium finishes in keelboat races in both single-handed and fully crewed divisions. For many years Marco was an advanced sailing and navigation instructor for CYA and ASA. He sailed his own 40-foot sloop from the Great Lakes through Gulf of St. Lawrence, and east coast of Canada down to South America and back – twice. These voyages sparked his interest in a maritime career, which he continues now for the 12th year, as captain, with his usual gusto. Marco and his crew have received two awards for a best charter yacht and he has been to just about every nook and cranny in the Caribbean and Aegean seas where s/y Helios does most of her chartering. Marco holds MCA’s 500ton unlimited Master’s license with sailing endorsement.

Marco is an Electronics Engineering Technician and worked two decades as a technical services executive with a team of 180 people and a project management consultant to large, multinational, technical IT projects. His other interests include maritime history, woodworking, and boat building. He built a Flying Dutchman for the Canadian Olympic Sailing Team, an Optimist dinghy for a Canadian National Champion, and assisted in the building of an Open 40 racing sailboat, the Spirit of Canada, for the 2003-04 Around Alone single-handed race around the globe.

Chef: Rene Schaeefer

Rene was born and raised in Frankfurt, Germany. He discovered his passion for cooking with his grandmother long before he decided to become a certified Chef. He gained experience in various highly regarded Institutions, such as Le Meridian Park Hotel in Frankfurt, and learned to prepare varying cuisines from European to Oriental, and Asian. Eager to progress his cooking skills he moved to the French Rivera and before dedicating himself to a yacht chef career, he worked in several Michelin Star restaurants along the Mediterranean coast.

By now he has worked over 14 years as Chef and on large yachts up to 90 meters, serving a large variety of meals from rich seafood buffets, organic raw vegetarian food, Kosher, and Halal Dinners. His experience in fine dining prepared him very well to adapt rapidly to all kinds of preferences with a commitment to excellence in taste and presentation, to tantalise his guests’ senses.

Beyond the galley, Rene’s passion for water sports and wildlife drove him to become a dive instructor and an ambassador for the underwater world. His enthusiastic and friendly attitude, along with his great sense of humour, has made him a highly appreciated crew member and highly favoured by our guests.

Chief Stewardess: Joleze Van Den Berg

Joleze was born in a small town called Hazyview. Whilst doing home schooling at the age of 12, she travelled the whole of South Africa with her family. Her first contact with hospitality started at her mother’s coffee shop, where she had the chance to put her highly infectious laughter and good humor to use. She further developed these skills at different restaurants in Cape Town. Joleze completed her first Atlantic crossing with her brother onboard a 48ft catamaran, sailing from Cape Town to Florida. Upon completion of this voyage, it became clear what her next adventure would be. Joleze has been working as a stewardess and dabbling on deck onboard various yachts for the past 4+ years. She joined S/Y Helios one year ago as 2nd Stewardess and has become our amazing Chief Stewardess, master at making cocktails and always happy to assist and serve our guest. She completed her PADI Open Water course last year on board Helios, with our Dive Instructor/Engineer Pierre, and is hooked to the activity! Her favorite sea creatures are sea horses.

Stewardess: Kelly Gibbs

As an American growing up in Costa Rica, Kelley learnt a great deal from the everyday challenges of multicultural diversity. Kelley is an adventurous, high-spirited girl who, if she could, would live under the sea with the fishes! Having helped her parents run the family diving business in Costa Rica, she comes with 9 years of teaching and 17 years of diving under her belt. Her adventures have taken her to a few of the most wondrous diving locations in the world, traveling and working as a Diving Instructor in Central America and the Caribbean. During the past six years she has worked in yachting as a Stewardess and a Chef, during the past six years, and aspires to continue her education in the diving and yachting industry! Onboard s/y Helios you will see Kelley bouncing around the interior where she will ensure that you enjoy your holiday to the fullest and go home with a most memorable experience. Kelley loves sharing her wealth of knowledge about the marine and terrestrial critters, and helping people become aware of their natural surroundings.

In her spare time, Kelley enjoys chilling out at the beach with her toes dug deep in the sand, practicing yoga on the dock, collecting cool seashells and rocks to make jewelry with, designing bikinis, and watching anything on Animal Planet or The Discovery Channel.

Mate: Matthew Roberts

Growing up in eastern North Carolina, Matty didn’t have much money, and so began his maritime career free-diving for fishing lures and anchors. He eventually managed his way through two degrees in Marine Biology while working various jobs SCUBA diving and helping run a diving program at the local aquarium. Then he fell in love with a rich English girl and ended up on her yacht in the Mediterranean. After the relationship had run its course, Matty sailed his first ocean passage of 8,000 miles across the Pacific, non-stop. He then came up with a perfect way to combine his two talents and started working as a Marine Biology Professor onboard a classically rigged schooner, teaching 20 live-aboard students a full college semester. Armed with these new skills he took the path of Deck Officer in yachting and obtained his 200 ton Captain’s and 500 ton Chief Mate licenses. Matty has worked on large super-sailing yachts ever since going on his 4th year now.

Engineer: Pierre Beltran

Pierre is 49% French and 51% Mexican. As a little boy Pierre already showed his interest in mechanics by taking things apart and trying to put them back together again. As he and his family vacationed in their yacht and camper van, Pierre developed necessary skills to maintain and fix anything that needed it. By 18 he was a dive instructor and started his studies in Industrial Engineering. He is a phenomenal source of technical knowledge of the wide range of equipment found on a sailing yacht and is impressively capable to work out solutions for even the most complex technical issues. Pierre holds a Y3 Yacht Engineering license and has worked on s/y Helios for thee years and onboard the same owner’s previous yacht before that. Always ready with a smile, if not a giggle, Pierre is a lively character. He enjoys interacting with guests and making them feel welcome and comfortable. Aside from yachting, Pierre loves to cook and then it’s all about the outdoors, with motorcycling, biking, SCUBA diving and jumping off a perfectly good airplane in mid-flight.

Layout

Perini Navi conceived the classic interior design which is predominantly mahogany and mahogany briar. HELIOS boasts a particularly large internal volume and she has a unique, adaptable interior design which allows the master suite to be divided into two cabins. HELIOS accommodates 8 guests in 4 guest staterooms or 10 guests in 5 cabins.

The Master cabin has a king size bed, Turkish steam shower, double sinks and toilet. 2 Guest cabins have a king bed which can be converted to twins, shower and toilet. The 4th  Guest cabin has twin bed, shower and toilet. Dividing the Master suite with Mahogany panels allows for a Convertible cabin with its own entrance which has a double size bed and shares toilet and shower with the twin bed cabin just forward of the master. HELIOS is fully air conditioned through out.
