REE Crew Profile

Captain Laurance Ottley started sailing in his early teens, some would say a bit late for a Brit, progressing from dinghies to offshore cruising and racing in both modern and traditional vessels. After a career in the decorating trade he took up sailing professionally in 1996. For the next 6 years he was employed first as mate, then as captain, aboard the 30 meter traditional wooden sailing ship IRENE in the Caribbean charter trade.


From 2004 to 2006 Laurance was full-time captain aboard another period wooden sailing ship, Thames Sailing Barge Kitty, doing corporate charters with up to 46 passengers before moving into the superyacht sector. In 2008 he took command of the Hoek-designed 30 meter ketch APHRODITE cruising extensively in the Med and Caribbean with the owner and guests over a period of three years.  2012 presented the opportunity for Captain Ottley to return to IRENE on a voyage around the Atlantic with sail trainees and cargo as part of a sustainable transport initiative.


On land Laurance loves to be 'let loose in the galley' practicing skills he has learned from working with great charter chefs over the years. Cycling is another passion. He rides road, cyclo-cross and mountain bikes and tours on two wheels. Last year he completed a 1,500km six week ride through Europe including the Swiss Alps and Pyrenees mountain ranges.


Captain Ottley takes pride in his excellent crew management skills and maintaining the vessels he commands to the highest possible standards to ensure owners and guests experience the fullest enjoyment wherever they cruise.


Chef Nuria Gutierrez was born and raised in Barcelona. At 26 she is young, ambitious and adds a little Spanish zest to all her endeavours. She attended Hofmann's School of Cooking before starting her career working at the home of the Dukes of Godo. She then moved on to Ferran Adria's ‘Nube’ restaurant before landing a chef's job for the Qatar Royal family on MY Helaitan.

In the galley Nuria takes her Mediterranean cuisine to a new level by mixing in flavors and techniques she has picked up during her travels, adding spices discovered in the Middle Eastern souks, blending in tropical salsas from Latin America and an all-around hearty Italian feel. Her classic training and knowledge of quality ingredients, produce and techniques don't limit her imagination, surprise is around every corner….

Nuria enjoys a well- blended Gin & Tonic with some nice background tunes.


Chief Stewardess Gaelle Andries is a 26 year old Belgian who really knows her chocolates.  She worked in high quality hotels and restaurants in London, Barcelona and Tenerife progressing through different departments including waitressing and reception desk, finishing as the senior butler of a luxury boutique hotel.  Seven years of experience gives Gaelle a very rounded and in-depth knowledge of the hospitality industry.

In May 2012 Gaelle joined her first yacht, the classic S/Y ZACA A TE MOANA, and travelled the Caribbean islands of St Lucia, Antigua and Guadeloupe.  She loves visiting new countries and collects flags from places she has visited along the way.

In her free time Gaelle enjoys reading cooking books and practising her cocktail skills. She makes a mean strawberry caipiroska!


Deck/Stew Lisa-Marie Borcherding

At 21 years old, German Deck/Stew Lisa is our junior crew member. Growing up, she enjoyed many holidays on board her family's 43ft sloop, exploring the Nordic and Baltic seas. In need of a warmer climate, she headed to Australia and worked as a Stewardess, Cook and Tour-guide on ecotourism sailing charters in the Whitsunday Islands. It's ‘Down Under’ that her passion for the ocean grew, even more so after numerous dives on the Great Barrier Reef.

Wanting to explore more warm climates, Lisa joined REE in the Caribbean, bringing with her 4 years of experience in hospitality. She combines her deck and interior skills greatly, ensuring guests feel comfortable on board at all times. Youthful Lisa brings joy to all her activities.

Lisa is a natural at wake boarding and is working hard towards her dive master.


First Mate Jesse Simons

Jesse is our First Mate and water sports guy. Growing up in the Far North of New Zealand, Jesse has never been far from the Ocean. After high school he moved down the country to explore his creative side and studied photography, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Jesse then got the urge to travel and began working in Australia as a photographer on whale watch tour boats.


Enjoying the life afloat, Jesse made the move to Europe and started working on Classic Sailing Yacht Stormvogel. He cruised the Med extensively and completed his first Atlantic crossing aboard Stormvogel. Following the yachting path he got his Yachtmaster ticket and worked aboard 37M Sailing Yacht La Cattiva for a year and a half, working his way from Deckhand to First Mate.


In his spare time, Jesse loves to surf, go fishing, diving and (more) sailing, and there’s always a camera nearby to capture those unique moments on the water.


Engineer Anthon Muller, South African

Anthon's working life started early on when, as a school leaver, he was recruited by his local bank. There his aptitude for accuracy and arithmetic were put to good use as a teller for the bank's commercial customers. After the confines of the backroom, but still only 18 years of age, Anthon bought himself a plane ticket to the UK and quickly found work in the tough world of the door to door salesman. His essentially honest and sincere nature evidently won him many good customers and after two years away from home he had made enough money to be able to return to SA and put himself into training as an electrical/mechanical engineer.

After three and half years of academic and on the job training Anthon quickly rose through the ranks of his state's electrical company, becoming a regional supervisor in charge of quality controlling the work of hundreds of other electricians, all by the tender age of 26. The qualities that brought Anthon to that point are great self-reliance and a conviction that if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well. Just the qualities needed of an onboard engineer where no two days are the same and quick and sometimes imaginative action is required to keep a yacht's services and equipment running smoothly whatever the circumstances.

When not working in the engine room, Anthon is a keen wakeboarder and regular participant in triathlons. At home he keeps and maintains his own speedboat to facilitate his wakeboarding so whilst his small craft seamanship is already very good, we are currently putting him through his paces in learning the ways of sailing a large yacht. He has a great way of assimilating all the important information very quickly, so we have high hopes of making a sailor out of him in no time at all!

6 guests, St. Martin – St. Martin

We had a great time on REE. The crew were a pleasure to be with, the food excellent,  the first mate an absolute rock, the stewardesses incredibly efficient, the engineer keeps the whole complex machinery working and the captain runs a tight ship. All of them could not have been nicer, they were great. And of course in all aspects REE is a very comfortable yacht - comfortable to be on and to sail.

Thanks for setting us up with a great cruise. Until the next one …



Report from the broker --

The client's Personal Assistant . . . said that it was a huge success.  Everyone had a great time.  One of the guests who always has something (critical) to say . . . said that the food and service was better than any 5 star restaurant or resort that they have been to.


The crew took excellent care of them; very concerned and caring.


So, I would like to thank you for taking such good care of my clients, and if you ever need a referral, please give my name and number.


You hit it out of the ballpark!!!

Feedback from the broker --

It was a fantastic charter and Mr G was very impressed with Captain Matt… he said that Matt is ‘a real yes guy’, meaning that nothing was too much trouble and Matt was keen to do anything to make the guests happy.  He also adored Nadine’s food.

Two weeks - Christmas 2012/New Year 2013 

The charter was fantastic!

The boat was beautiful and immaculate.

All party commented that the brochure doesn't do her justice; maybe something that needs looking at!

All crew worked extremely hard to ensure we had a great time and were very sociable.

Looking forward already to the next one.
