Charter Catamaran SWEETEST THING: Announces their new Chef

The charter yacht catamaran SWEETEST THING, a Fountaine Pajot Salina 48, has announced their chef for the new 2011-12 yacht charter season.

Welcome, Robert Thunder!

Robert Thunder began his culinary career in 1997 at the age of 16. A year later, he won the Gold Award for "Best in Class" for his duck in the world famous Hotelympia competition. He was invited to compete in the British Culinary Arts team for the 1998 Culinary World Cup, and voted "Junior Chef of the Year" in 1999. After this distinguished start to his career, Robert worked in restaurants, catering services and (since 2005) several yachts of various sizes serving gourmet food to some of the toughest customers on the planet. Before joining Sweetest Thing, Robert was delighting patrons of an upscale boutique restaurant just outside Kingston Jamaica called EITS, where reviews have been glowing.

Here's an article from the Jamaica Observer about EITS which mentions Robert throughout the piece...

Catamaran Sweetest Thing - Crewed Caribbean Yacht Charters - Virgin Islands Sailing Vacations

The charter yacht Sweetest Thing is a 48-foot Fountaine Pajot Salina 48 and has a crew of two. Sweetest Thing is fully air conditioned and has three guest cabins, each with personal DVD player. The crew quarters are the two single berths in the forward section of the starboard hull. Sweetest Thing has a 12-foot dinghy with 25HP motor, tube, kneeboard, two kayaks, snorkel equipment, TV/DVD in salon, etc.

Captain Tofer (Kristofer Burton) is back for his second season with Sweetest Thing and is currently underway bringing the yacht from Annapolis to the Virgin Islands.

Tofer has a broad smile, and a great personality - full of stories. He lives aboard his own 47' aluminum monohull with his lovely wife, Rebecca, and 4 of their 5 kids (one is in college). They transit south to Grenada in the summer, so he will be Sweetest Thing's captain down-island next summer, then back in the Virgin Islands the following winter.

The owners tell us that "they are so fortunate to have Tofer on the team. He is really special".

RATES (all-inclusive, 7-night/8-day charter):
  • 2 guests: $10,500/week
  • 4 guests: $11,750/week
  • 6 guests: $13,000/week

We are looking forward to visiting catamaran Sweetest Thing next month.
