Charter Yacht ALOHA MALOLO: New chef for new season (2012-2013)

We were happy to hear that ALOHA MALOLO has changed their plans and will continue chartering in the Virgin Islands and possibly other Caribbean destinations through May 2013.

Eric, Jennifer, and Salty Dog

Eric, owner-operator of Aloha Malolo, also wrote to announce his new chef:
"Aloha Malolo’s newest addition is Chef Jennifer Williams and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her aboard. Chef Jennifer grew up on the water in Florida but has traveled the world extensively and "has never met a stranger". She has always felt most at home on the water and says it’s where it all starts and stops… contentment! Rumor has it that an invitation to dine from Chef Jennifer has never been turned down. Jennifer’s love of people and cooking glean through in her cuisine. Her culinary skills will delight any fine dining aficionado’s refined palette or can soothe one’s soul with simple southern comforts. Our Chef has led a holistic life since 2000 and cooks with only fresh ingredients. Recent guest Chance Lillo is quoted as saying her tequila-lime Mahi tacos (with fresh cilantro sauce) were the best thing he’s ever tasted… though she’s too humble to admit it.

"Jennifer’s selfless nature, exuberant attitude, and infectious laughter are certain to make you feel right at home aboard the Aloha Malolo."
Eric is quite an interesting guy. We alway enjoy running into him when we are together in the same port with our sailboat...
Captain Eric fell in love with life on the ocean 30 years ago during his first 9-month passage, sailing from Los Angeles to Panama. Aloha Malolo and Eric have been together for 14 years and this is the fourth boat he’s had the pleasure of sailing and living upon. Eric has lived in Hawaii, Colorado, and California with prior careers in real estate development and property management.

Besides having a US Coast Guard Captains license, Eric also holds licenses for PADI Divemaster (with endorsement to instruct Resort Divers), FAA Private Helicopter, Fixed Wing Pilot, Commercial Hot Air Balloon Pilot, and STCW Safety Certification.

Eric's philosophy is your happiness aboard the Aloha Malolo is his happiness.

Read this previous Blog Post for more info about Aloha Malolo and another one of Eric's philosphies: "Put Your Wallet Away" charters!

Last but definitely not least, the third member of the Aloha team is Salty Dog...

Salty Dog is truly Aloha Malolo’s original First Mate and is happy to join your charter or, if you're not the doggy type, don't worry, she also loves to stay ashore with one of the many fans vying for her attention. Salty is very well known in many ports; it is typical to hear someone call out “Hi Salty Dog” or “Aren’t you Salty Dog’s Dad? Where’s Salty?”. Salty is currently 9 years old and when not sleeping, can be found on the boats swim step enjoying her life’s passion….FISHING and looking for DOLPHINS to play with!
We are looking forward to visiting Aloha Malolo soon! How about you :)

Sorry, Aloha Malolo is already booked for Christmas 2012 & New Years
