Crew Profile

Stefan & Chloe: Sailing, working and loving together since 2007

Chloe and Stefan were liveaboard cruisers (sailing in the Pacific, Indian Ocean, Red Sea, Mediterranean and Caribbean) long before they started to run crewed charters in Latin America and the Caribbean in 2015.

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 Chand (BA Hons, RYT Yoga Teacher, PADI Rescue Diver) 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 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. Chloe has trained at the prestigious Ashburton Chef’s Academy in the UK and 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). Vegan menus are one of Chloe's specialities.

Chloe and Stefan have a soulful love of the ocean and sailing, which they enjoy sharing with guests. Their warm, upbeat personalities, exceptional hospitality and joie de vivre is all part of what will make your vacation unforgettably wonderful!
Relaxing in nature, yoga and watersports are at the forefront of what they offer. Unwind in a stunningly beautiful, carefree environment, leaving your ‘everyday’ behind you; sit back and soak up the sun with a Caribbean breeze in your hair; experience diving, free-diving, surfing, wake-boarding snorkelling and hiking – as well as other fun activities, such as scavenger hunts, murder mystery themed dinners, etc.

Chloe & Stefan share time and space with guests and enjoy being personable, making you feel comfortable and at home on your sailing vacation. Playing guitar and stargazing over a nice glass of wine and good conversation is part of what they provide to create a wonderful holiday atmosphere and memories which last a lifetime. Aboard Altesse, most guests arrive as clients but leave as friends.
