Crew

Meet the crew!

Captain Hugh O'Brien (60) Anglo Irish

Born in England and then lived in more than a dozen countries across Europe, Asia and
The Americas. Now a permanent US Resident living in the Caribbean & Florida, predominantly in the US and British Virgin Islands.
Hugh started competitive sailing and ocean racing in the UK & France in 1987 (35 years of ocean sailing experience). He completed his intensive Royal Yachting Association (RYA) YachtMaster 500 Ton Sail & Power Commercial License in 2002 at the prestigious UK Sailing Academy, and worked as a Captain & Chef in commercial yachting in the Cayman Islands, Virgin Islands, USA & Japan. Hugh also ran 5 Star Sailing with a 50 ft Beneteau Sloop as a Captain Chef in the Virgin Islands from 2007-2011.

A 20 year career in Marketing & Sales for American IT & Database companies saw Hugh working in some 20 countries and heading up operations in Europe, US, Asia & Latin America. In 2017, Hugh purchased a new 60 ft Beneteau sloop (Ocean Star) with his business
partner Nick in Charleston, leading to the maiden season for the yacht and crew in the
Virgin Islands for 2018. Hugh attended culinary classes and schools in France, Japan and America, and specializes in Mediterranean, Latin American and Asian fresh food dishes with premium ingredients.

Hugh is a light social drinker but non smoker, no drugs, no criminal record, clean
licenses and a broad sense of humour especially when trying to catch fish!

Chef Mate: Vivian Swietelsky (58) American Swiss

Vivianne, or “Chef ViVi” is based in St Thomas & Miami. She is known for her authentic interpretations of the world’s great cuisines – American, Mediterranean, Southeast Asian, Indian & Latin American – as well as for being an outstanding pastry chef and
cocktail mixologist.

For as far back as she can remember, Chef Vivi has been passionate about food and the artistry of its preparation. Born in the U.S. to an Italian father and a Venezuelan mother, she grew up in the United States, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and Mexico, and is fluent in five languages. Her family life revolved around the enjoyment of great food and her mother taught her to cook instinctually, from the heart.

Another one of Chef ViVi’s passions is sailing, and she has enjoyed working on sailboats around the world. She also has an ASA Certificate for Offshore Sailing gained in the U.S. Virgin Islands and has owned and operated several Beneteau yachts.

Chef ViVi attended culinary schools in several different countries & studied hospitality management at the Florida International University’s School of Hospitality & Tourism. She has been a restaurant Pastry Chef, owned her own upscale catering company, “Truffles Catering”, and worked as Chef for clientele in both private homes and on
charter yachts.

What Vivianne enjoys the most about being Chef with Captain Hugh is the daily interaction with their guests and the pleasure of creating wonderful memories for them. From serving them her signature cocktails to preparing their favorite entree or dessert, to creating a dish they have never tried before -and now will never forget- it’s all about delivering a five-star dining experience and exceeding even their highest expectations.

Mate Stewardess: (when needed) Doris Schepian (44) American German

Doris has great skills around the galley and creates amazing meals and cocktails and has several years of charter experience in the Virgin Islands on Catamarans and Monohulls. She is an avid swimmer, snorkeler and hiker.

Engineer Mate: (when needed) Barney Calhoun (43) Scottish American

Barney grew up in Costa Rica then moved to the US. He is an experienced engineer that has lived in the US Virgin Islands for 15 years. He has owned multiple yachts and worked on countless more, he is a skilled yachtsman and active racing crewman and he tells silly family style jokes on request!

The crew look forward to creating memories of a lifetime with you aboard Philotimo!

*Three members of crew aboard for charters of 6 guests or more

Thank you very much for such an amazing charter! The experiences on the water and the amazing meals were unforgettable! We loved seeing turtles, swimming in the ocean, riding the tube and kneeboard, and dancing to the steel drum on our final night. This was a first class experience for each of us
