Hi - We're Dominic and Hannah!
We've been a couple since 2012 and have worked on various sized boats (78ft- 160ft) until we settled on Mucho Gusto which launched as a 65ft Power Catamaran in February 2019.
A bit about us; Dominic was brought up on a working flower farm by German/ French Parents on the Garden Route in South Africa. His father & brother are both mechanics so he's also been brought up very practically and mechanically minded. Dom was (and still is) really sporty, Tennis & water-sports being his favorite. He got into yachting through a friend of his who asked him to be crew on his boat back in 2011. When he returned to Cape Town to do his Yacht Masters he met Hannah..
Hannah (I) was brought up in Cape Town, South Africa by my British Folks. I studied Brand Building and Management before meeting Dominic and being whisked away into the world of yachting. I was initially a stewardess on my first 3 boats before discovering an interest in cooking, and then decided to put myself through a years Chef Training. I graduated as 'Student of the Year (2015)' and received a Diploma in Culinary Arts & Cookery and was employed on a yacht in Florida before having even arrived.
Dom & I are both really passionate about providing a high end service and anticipating our guests' needs before they're even considered. We really get so much satisfaction and pleasure from giving our guests a trip of a lifetime.
Crew are fully vaccinated for COVID 19.
Dear Hannah & Dom,
Thank you so much for this amazing experience! I am so glad that after 3 years we finally made it! I will miss the food so much. I really wish i could bring Hannah home with me to cook for me all the time lol. And Dom, thank you for dealing with out late night shenanigans. you can finally get a good night sleep! I wish you both the very best and hope to see you again. Thank you!! Anissa <3
Hannah & Dom,
I have never eaten so well or seen such amazing underwater life! I will never forget swimming for our lives away from that reef shark, you bopping it on the tail & the biggest tangle ever created on one persons ponytail (mine :(). And I'd do it all again. Your shrimp tempura alone will lure me back honestly. Thank y'all for everything! Amy & Michael

There are no words to describe this amazing experience. The views alone were incredible, but your gourmet food & service were Michelin star worthy. We feel so fortunate to have been able to spend these 7 days on this amazing yacht.

Dear Han & Dom,
Thank you so much for everything, we had so much fun diving. It was great seeing Hannah get up to 10 dives.

A week of Valentines Day-ing 2022
Dear Hannah & Dom,
Thank you for an incredible week of divine food and adventure. We feel so lucky to have explored one of the most beautiful places on earth with you as our guides. From nurse sharks to “real” sharks, sea turtles, rays, and hundreds of varieties of fish, it was a feast for the eyes. And the food, so delicious with expert attention to detail. As Hans Christian Andersen writes, “To travel is to live,” I believe this week was one of the best weeks we’ve had in travel and in life.
Dearest Hannah & Dom!
Once again a magical vacation!
-Turquoise water, white sand, beautiful sunsets
-Swimming with many nurse sharks now that I’m not in fear for my life!
-More fish than I could possibly count
-Best meals EVER!
-Poker where we were schooled by Hannah
-Introduction to Kumquats and essential oils.
-A week with our amazing friends!
-I CANNOT WAIT TO COME BACK!!
See you in May!

Mid January Charter 2022
Dear Hannah & Dominic,
It’s been a fantastic week- so relaxing.
Lots of special and different dishes (Tx Hannah) and Dom took us to all the best spots for activities, turtle watching and the lovely blue water and with sandy beaches.
A real treat from the cold winds in Norway and all the impossible pandemic issues. Maybe you’ll get to Norway some day and we can show you the beauty of Norway.
Dear Hannah and Dominic,
Every once in a while a little magic happens, and so it was when we boarded the good ship “Mucho Gusto’. The two of you work in perfect harmony, and made us feel right at home, the food was varied and divine as was the wine and whiskey.
The sights and sounds of the beautiful islands, the stories round the dinner table, all added to an unforgettable week, which has sadly come to an end.
We will never forget and will always look back with a smile on our faces.
Bon Voyage guys & happy trails,
First trip of 2022
Dear Dominic and Hannah,
We have absolutely LOVED out time with you on Mucho Gusto! You are both such special people and it has been such a pleasure to spend the last week with you! Dominic, you have the most gentle spirit. It was so sweet to watch you with Remy. Hannah- You are so much fun to be around! I am not super social but I found myself wanting to be around you visiting all the time <3. We all agree that you are the most magnificent chef we have ever met!!! All of our adventures were incredible, all of our meals were amazing, I don’t really see any room for improvements! We hope to see you again,

Like Ferris Bueller said “ life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop & look around once in a while you will miss it”. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping our family stop & look around. It’s the memories we make & the people we share them with that matters the most in life. We made amazing memories that will last a lifetime & most important we got to shape them with you. You both are the best.

3 Day Breakaway
Thank you for the most incredible experience.
Snorkeling was incredible and thank you for helping me get over my fear. The food was amazing and hospitality over the top. This trip has created the most fantastic memories that we will have for a lifetime. Thank you for that.
The Experience was unforgettable! Hannah’s cooking skills are second to none. Best food I’ve ever enjoyed. Dom’s boating tours were amazing! You both make an incredible team it was a pleasure meeting and yachting with you both.
Sincere thank you for a wonderful trip.
Thank you, Hannah and Dom, for such an incredible and memory filled time! Hannah- you are such a gifted chef- every meal was even better than the last! Mucho Gusto is like a 5-star restaurant! Dom- I loved all the adventures and the experiences! So many Firsts, floating thru the mangroves, and snorkeling thru caves- just wow! And the sharks!? Never ever thought I would swim or PET sharks! This has been the best!
Simply Unforgettable- An 11 out of 10! Can’t wait for next year!
A Last Minute Switcheroo, Part Two
Dear Hannah & Dom,
Thank you for making our short two night stay so magical! The food was absolutely incredible, the location was dreamy and your involvement in helping and including our teenagers in the fun made this trip so special for us. We truly were able to see and do so many fun things- from swimming with sea turtles, paddle boarding, snorkeling the reef, tubing, trying to knock down the infamous coconut, the glorious lightning storm with the heart shaped lightning bolt! learning a new board game, playing dominoes and 5-star dining that was out of this world good. So worth all the effort to get here! We know our son Azby will remember this trip of a lifetime as well. Thank you for taking him under your wing. When Doug caught the first fish, I will never forget Dom saying to Azby, “You must learn Azby” in his stealth accent “how to get the fish off the hook and back into the water”. So memorable- all of it. We feel blessed. Thank you!
The Grant Family
A Last Minute Switcheroo
It was a wonderful time on Mucho Gusto, with our two grandchildren. Dom was fantastic playing with Azby & Izzy. Hannah’s cooking will put us on a diet for weeks to come.
It was a special trip on short notice! Thank you so Much.
Elk Grove, CA
A Mid May Escapade
It seems that every time I write an entry in a 'travel guest book', it always begins with "Wow!... amazing trip!...awesome!... can't wait to come back!..." but this time feels different. Spending the week with Dom and Hannah was like coming home. Where family welcomes you with open arms and where laughter and conversation are plentiful. Where there’s always something delightful brewing in the kitchen and where evenings are for stories of the day’s adventures, relaxing and ice cream! We are grateful for this time with Dom and Hannah who felt like friends you had missed for so long and finally able to see again. It is time… we cannot wait to return, as we are absolutely in love with the Mucho Gusto and these islands!
Until next time…
Tandem in May
Hannah and Dom-
Where do I even begin?
Words alone cannot express how amazing this trip was. The thought and detail that went into every meal, activity and excursion was beyond our wildest dreams. You both made this truly a trip of our dreams and the best 50th (51st) birthday celebration possible. Thank you, thank you!
We are already looking forward to seeing you both again!
Hannah + Dom-
This was an AMAZING TRIP.
We loved every minute of it. Everything was perfect from the well picked stops along beautiful sandbars, beaches to the delicious food. We were all so taken care of the entire time. It is my hope that we get to return. You both made our vacation unforgettable.
First Week of May
Han & Dom-
This trip- how do I describe it? So much sun and salt and new experiences! You two made us feel so special, so taken care of- a true vacation. When was the last time we had one? I don’t think we even have had one ^until now- a completely new experience!
The beauty of the Bahamas cannot even compare with you two. And the FOOD- I could write page after page about how stunning the food was. Thank you so much- we are so grateful and hope we get to see you again! Much Love,
Chris & Brandon
Hannah & Dom-
What a week we had... the fun, the food, the experiences, the laughter... all will remain such a special memory for us.

Dear Hannah + Dom,
What an incredible trip! Thank you so very much for ending such a bizarre year on such a high note! The best part of our year, for sure! A week spent with family and an amazing crew was definitely cut too short. This week went beyond our expectations, with incredible food and service. Let's not forget the countless laughs and bright memories of Drew & SG getting engaged to Trip skipping across the water from Dom's Tube driving skills and Hannah's delectable chocolate chip cookie birthday cake for Robert, you made this trip everything we hoped for and more.
Cheers to the absolute best start to the New Year!

Dear Dom + Hannah
Thank you for such a wonderful, charming, lovely, part of our family's birthday/holiday adventure. From spoiling us with dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free delights, to swimming pigs, flying on the tube, sushi, wakeboarding at sunset, snorkeling, avocado toast, lost flippers, pet nurse sharks, being together on a beautiful boat in the turquoise Bahamas, early paddle boards, baking with Ms Hannah, and most importantly a healthy reconnection during these challenging times.

Post Hurricane Isias Charter August 2020
Dear Hannah & Dom,
How can I thanks you for making this trip beyond wonderful & magical? You guys are great, fun and so comfortable to be with. From the fabulous food, magical coves & beaches, tow snorkeling (a first & such fun!) and patience with shell collecting. i couldn't have asked from more. I cannot wait until we meet again! With love, Pam
Dom + Hannah,
Thank you again for the most incredible trip! You made this trip absolutely fantastic and a perfect holiday amongst the craziness of 2020. Plenty of fun and silly memories were made; from Dom's wine bottle incident to tow snorkeling and curious sharks. This is the best because of you two and we cannot wait to have you come visit us! Until then; safe travels!
The Rossetter's (again)
Pre Isolation Charter March 2020
Dom and Hannah!
We could not have been "Quarantined" with nicer people or a better culinary Rock Star!
Thank you so much for making this last week FANTASTIC. Some of our favorite memories are the water sports (Dom, you're the best tube-driver ever) and the food (seriously!).
I'm personally thankful for 'The Four Tendencies' (book in the little library) and the added knowledge and vocabulary it has given me.
You know as an Obliger I cannot not write in this book and you know as a Rebel, Steve just won't write in this book, that Brody (our questioner) has thoroughly questioned and thought about why he should or shouldn't write in this book and that Ella (Upholder) has been ready to write in it all day.
Either way, please know that you are probably only 1/4 mile away from us at any given time/ place and we'd love to hear from you.
We would not hesitate to book again with you both and Mucho Gusto has been a dream boat!
Thanks so much for everything!
Celebratory Trip March 2020
Dom & Hannah,
Thank you both for the trip of a lifetime!
The only thing better than the yacht was the company of Dom & Hannah. The food & service exceeded any expectations we had.
Dom was an expert at picking the perfect locations to anchor, Hannah blew us away at every meal, & together they planned the perfect week of unforgettable memories.
We can't wait to see you guys again soon!!

The journey, the food, the drinks (!!!!), and the warm TLC made for a great 6 days.
You two feel like family... we'll definitely see you again on Mucho Gusto.
Thanks for everything,

Thank you Dom & Hannah for an incredible trip and a wonderful, unexpected friendship!
There was not a single thing that was not above- and - beyond, the food, the spots you took us, the snorkeling, and especially the company and conversation.

4 Day Exuma Excursion July 2019
To the Impeccable Captain Dominic & the Exquisite Chef, Hannah.
I don't think we have enough adjectives to properly describe the perfection of our time on Mucho Gusto!
From tendering over to pick us up by the airport (Staniel Cay), to planning the perfect anchorages, to seeking out fantastic snorkel spots both well known & brand new, Dominic, Your professionalism and attention to detail was levels above your years!
Chef Hannah, you my friend, have MAD food skills. Every meal was perfectly prepared and an explosion of complementary flavors and textures... A new adventure on every plate. I don't think we have ever eaten so well for so many meals in a row!
Mucho Gusto is truly a beautiful yacht and the attention to detailing the planning does not go unnoticed. the smart choices and stunning design elements make her a match above the competition. We cannot wait to get our next adventure with you guys on the books!
From the bottom of our Hearts, Thank you!
