Captain Sean P. Meagher

The Captain has cruised Europe, Asia, North America, New Zealand and the South Pacific. Captain Sean is an avid diver and adventurer. No request is too daunting; anything from a private fireworks display to a symphony orchestra playing for you on a deserted island, if you can dream it he will make it happen. His attention to detail and a healthy dose of panache will assure that your voyage onboard New Vida will be a memorable one.
Chef Marcus Gary
Marcus grew up skiing in the German Alps and developed a love of food at early age. He has worked on some of the finest charter yachts in the world with destinations from New Zealand, the Mediterranean, Central America and of course the Caribbean.

It will be his pleasure to provide you with a varied culinary experience while aboard New Vida. Marcus also is the spitting image of Til Schweiger who is Germany's most successful filmmaker and biggest movie star.
