    Charter Yacht Chef Recipes

    “One of the most memorable things about any crewed yacht charter is the food. I can’t tell you how many recipes I’ve poached from charter yacht chefs, taken home, and prepared for my friends and family. They all think I’m some kind of gourmet genius.

    A Bit of Insider Baseball

    “People ask me all the time why CharterWave is the only resource available to readers who want independent information about booking charter yacht vacations.
