Chef Alan is the professional chef every Yacht Captain and owner need on there team. He loves what he dose and it can be seen with the delivery of his Culinary talents. From management of his galley, provisioning, needs of the owners, guests, captain and crew, chef Alan will not miss a detail. It was a great opportunity to sail 8 days with chef Alan from Ft. Lauderdale to Newport aboard the 86′ North Star. Alan has a upbeat personality and positive attitude at all times. He is a team leader and willing to help in all areas aboard the yacht, on deck handling fenders, lines, washing, fueling and engine department duties. I highly recommend Chef Alan to any Captain and Yacht Owner who need a team leader. He is top on my list.
