In this region he fine tuned his skills not only on deck but in the engine room and especially in the realm of fishing, which he thoroughly enjoys. Aaron is very personable with guests and has great energy for those who are eager to engage in watersports activities aboard.

Chef: Paul Carroll *freelance
Previous Charter Yachts: M/Y CHIP, M/YHAPPY HOUR, M/Y CINQUE MARE, M/Y DR NO, M/Y MILLENIUM, Waters Cruised: Caribbean, North Atlantic Having 30 years experience in the hospitality business has taught me that success is based on the guests satisfaction when the experience has concluded. My attraction to Private Chef Services is understanding the guests preferences and make the culinary part of their experience unforgettable. Owning a restaurant for 15 years and a Catering company for the last 10 years has enabled me to understand the guest and anticipate what will work best. You always need to be one step ahead and versatile. I relish the opportunity to be able to individually attend to a specific group and dedicate all my knowledge and passion to making their experience special. I am also versed in Vegan, Low Carb/High Protein and Gluten free diet standards. I love open fire barbecuing, SCUBA and Tennis.
