World Sailors and Adventurers
Stefan & Chloe have been sailing, living and working together since 2007. They enjoy sharing their soulful love of the ocean with guests and their warm, upbeat personalities, exceptional hospitality and joie de vivre is part of what will make your vacation unforgettably wonderful!
Captain Stefan Huebbe
Captain Stefan (MScEng, RYA Yachtmaster, PADI Dive Instructor) was born in Berlin, Germany, and developed a love of the wind and sea as a teenager, sailing his first dingy at age 16 and is a keen surfer, kitesurfer and freediver.
He got his master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, which led him to a successful career managing specialist multimillion dollar engineering projects in Europa and Australia.
However, his first love was always the ocean, so he decided to return to Europe the slow way; sailing solo on his own yacht, over the Pacific Ocean...and managed to get as far as Bali before meeting Chloe; which was to change his life's course forever.
After sailing all over the world together (over 45,000nm) for several years, it was time for a new project, so Stefan started designing and building luxury houseboats in Europe. 13 houseboats later, they decided it was a sailor’s life for them after all, and never looked back!
Chef Chloe Salder
Chef Chloe Chand was born in London, England and had a professional career in project management before developing an aversion to chairs and retrained to become a yoga instructor and language teacher, working for various charities and universities.
Her passion for education, the environment, spirituality and anthropology has led her all over the world – living everywhere from Barcelona to Borneo.
After sailing around the world with Stefan, Chloe trained at the prestigious Ashburton academy in the UK as a professional chef.
Her cuisine favours fresh, locally-sourced ingredients to create healthy, rainbow-coloured and seriously flavourful recipes. European food is at the forefront of her culinary repertoire, as well as more exotic influences from her travels (including South East Asia, India and Morocco).
