Captain: Arnold Heins
Nationality: South African
Captain Arnold Heins
Arnold comes to The Peddler with 14 years of experience under his belt. His career took off back in 2008 when he started as deckhand/dive instructor on a 76’ sailing catamaran. It was a life as a dive instructor and a love for the ocean that lead him to pursue a career in yachting. In 2011 he became Captain on a 58’ charter sailing catamaran in the BVI. Arnold transitioned from sailing yachts to motor yachts in 2013 when he started to run a 100’ Hargrave in South Florida and the Bahamas.
Before captaining The Peddler, Arnold was the captain on board a 96’ Nordhavn, Lacey Kay. Arnold ran Lacey Kay alongside his wife and two other crewmembers for almost three years. He cruised with the owners from Alaska to Panama on the west coast, and from Columbia to Maine on the east coast. After Lacey Kay he joined another 96’ Nordhavn, Vivierae II, a charter vessel in the Caribbean and the Bahamas.
He has extensive cruising experience of the Caribbean, Bahamas, New England, Central America and the west coast of America, including Alaska.
Arnold's love for the ocean, water sports, and spotting the ideal anchorage makes him a great asset to The Peddler. His passion for people, entertaining and being on the water is evident to his guest and makes for the perfect charter experience. He is from South Africa and speaks English and Afrikaans.

The environment suits her hard working attitude, and her love of fusing diverse cuisines and experimenting with local ingredients works well as a traveling chef, searching out inspiration in whatever port she finds herself.
