Crew Profile

**CREW THROUGH MARCH 2023**
ROB & BELINDA

Rob Bentley

Born in South Africa and growing up on the East coast of Kwa Zulu Natal, Rob has been a “water boy” his whole life. He is an accomplished sailor with over 30,000 sea miles under his belt on a range of vessels.

Worthy of mention was the family sailing adventure where Rob, Belinda and their 2 children embarked on a 4-year world cruise on their catamaran, Shayile. They cruised the East Coast of Africa, Indian Ocean, SE Asia, Indonesia, and Australia.

Rob has a passion for the ocean and loves water sports. He is a qualified surf life saver, pilot, advanced diver, and avid fisherman. He has a particular passion for salt water flyfishing. He loves to go out and hopefully return with something delicious to toss on the BBQ. Mountaineering is Rob's other passion, and he has hours of adventures on mountains spanning the globe. His epic adventure to Mt. Everest is worth listening to over a cocktail sundowner!

When Rob is not out skippering and entertaining, you will see him working in the galley with Belinda. Cocktails and the BBQ are part of Rob’s regime, and he knows the perfect stories to tell while you enjoy them!


Belinda Bentley

Born and raised on the East Coast of South Africa, Belinda has spent her life close to the sea, camping, swimming, scuba diving and fishing as well as hiking and climbing the inland Drakensberg mountains.

She is a ‘people’s person’ and in addition to her culinary training, is also trained as a professional nurse, specializing in maternity.

Belinda is a generous and passionate cook who has been influenced by travel and time spent in many different countries. She is particularly fond of Asian cuisine, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam, but also enjoys spicy Mexican, Indian and Mediterranean influences.

She loves to cook fish and seafood and pair it with local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. She enjoys bright and bold flavours, especially citrus notes which do well to compliment the Caribbean climate. Delicious cool and creamy desserts round off dinner and ensure full and satisfied guests!

Waking up to fresh morning coffee and watching the sun set with drinks and appetizers are the absolute essence of life aboard and she can’t wait to welcome you!


***CREW STARTING APRIL 2023***
DIMITRI & NOEMIE

Dimitri Prudent

Originally from Martinique, Dimitri began the enjoying the sea by snorkel and spear fishing on a traditional fishing vessel called ‘ Yole Ronde’’, which he sailed around Martinique in his youth with a crew speaking both French and Creole.

Dimitri is dynamic and open minded, he likes engaging with guests and allowing them to discover the wonderful nature of the sea, making for many memorable moments onboard.

Charter Yacht BELLE VIE Guest Reviews

July 2022

It was a glorious trip. The weather was perfect, the Belle Vie was a lovely boat, and Rob and B were fantastic. Thanks for the great recommendation. Holly & Jeff

July 2022 - broker provided survey

Rating of Yacht & Crew: (5 Being the Highest) 5 Was the yacht comfortable and clean? The yacht was absolutely spotless and beautiful. We were left wanting for nothing more. Everything we needed for the perfect vacation was available and in great working condition. Was the yacht well ventilated? Yes, we had no issues (as I have in the past!) with air conditioning or wind flow. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? The crew was spectacular. They provided the highest level of service possible. Everything, from the amazing food to the fantastic guidance on where to go and what to do, was perfect. I truly can't imagine a better crew to work with. We left our trip feeling as if we've made life long friends. Was the food good and well presented? The food was fantastic. It was delicious and the variety was great. Belinda really worked to understand our likes and dislikes and adjusted every meal to fit our needs perfectly. Since arriving home we've been craving Belinda's food!! Additional comments about the yacht and crew? Rob was a fantastic captain. Not only did he work tirelessly to keep the yacht in perfect shape but he was also a great guide during the trip. He catered our itinerary around the needs of our entire group. Whether that was extreme amounts of snorkeling for some or extreme relaxation and bar hopping for others. We all got what we wanted out of our week long vacation of a lifetime! Cruising Area Did you like the area you chartered in? The BVI's were incredible! I can't imagine a more beautiful location. However, I would recommend traveling directly into Tortola as opposed to St Thomas and ferrying to Tortola which adds layers of complexity and cost that weren't very fun.

Broker Provided Review

The crew were very friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely fabulous and far exceeded our expectations. Rob and Belinda went out of their way to make our charter one of the best vacations we have ever had. We would love to charter with them again. BVIs are fantastic.

New Years 2022

Belinda and Rob, THANK YOU for an amazing trip and the wonderful experiences. We all had a blast and felt very blessed to have you be our hosts for the week. The food was amazing and the many stops between each meal were welcomed adventures. From jumping off Will T's, to meandering through the Baths, to New Years on Anegada...we all had a ball!! I can assure you this trip will be talked about for many, many years! Thank you again for your hospitality and always offering to help make our trip 5 star! Enjoy the next charter and may your 2022 be blessed and prosperous! Brooks, Whitney, Mimi, and the girls PS We are praying you get to connect with your Australian bound kids this year!! Fingers crossed!

December 2021

Dear Belinda and Rob, What a glorious time my family had sailing with you in the BVI’s! As we anticipate winter temps and probable frozen precip this evening, we are longing for Belle Vie, your hospitality and those warm, sunny islands!! I don’t think we can ever top the fun times and adventures we had with you. Thank you so much for giving all of us the trip of a lifetime. We had such fun!!! Both of you were always right on hand to offer hospitality and adventures. Eliza, Brier and Lydia thought everything was amazing! What a fabulous array of delicious meals the “master chef” prepared. And the Captain was always spot on with a water toy or adventure. Indeed we were blessed to be on the Belle Vie with the two of you, who made our trip so memorable. Thank you again so much. I hope 2022 finds you happily at sea enjoying your “empty nest” stage of life. Hope you get to see those Australian children of yours, too! Right now I wish you were close at hand to me with a rum punch!!! Do get in touch if you get to the States and near the Atlanta area. We’d love to connect again. God bless you in your travels. Fondly, Meriel

November 2021

Hey Rob and Belinda, We cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful experience! I honestly do not have the words to say what you two did for me personally. You were so kind to show me the ropes, let me get in the way and share some of your knowledge about sailing and the lifestyle that I couldn’t get anywhere else. My desire to sail has gotten a million times stronger thanks to the both of you. On top of that, you made sure we still had a vacation of a lifetime! The food was absolutely amazing (even with all of our crazy dietary restrictions) and you two were always so willing to make sure we were at all the spots we wanted to be at. All this while sharing bits of your South African culture with us. After a day or two I just felt like I was hanging out with two old friends. Please keep us in mind once you visit the states. We would love to buy to two a drink and see how the charter life is treating you. We wish you all the best. Maybe we will see you out on the sea sometime! Fair winds and following seas! James, Amanda, Gena, Megan and Jason
