Catamaran AMAZING Crew Profile
CAPTAIN WILLEM KNOETZE
Willem Knoetze is very easy to warm up to. He has an endearing smile, an infectious laugh, and guests know right away they are in very capable hands. His in-water experience began as a child; going fishing, building rafts, and playing pirate games in the rivers and lakes around the family farm with his brother and sisters. As an expert seaman, scuba diver, and amateur treasure hunter, his playful pirate spirit still runs deep.
Will’s tight-knit family, most especially his uncle, inspired his love of the ocean. He says, “Despite having a great job in the IT industry, I had to leave to follow my passion for sailing. Since I was young I loved the ocean above and below the surface. The oceans kept on pulling so I jumped (in) at the opportunity and found my calling in life.” He is also a history buff, and snorkeling, spear fishing and underwater photography enthusiast. Fellow enthusiasts aboard Amazing can anticipate some truly amazing experiences.
Will has captained many charter yachts throughout the Caribbean; St. Maarten, Guadeloupe, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Panama, Grand Turk and the Bahamas, He says, “Amazing is a special catamaran, she has style and class, luxurious accommodations, fantastic deck space, loads of toys, and a super friendly, knowledgeable crew dedicated to memorable moments and unforgettable holidays for guests.” That all adds up to one amazing charter!
CHEF LIZ WILKENS
Cathrina Wilkens, more affectionately known as Lizzie, was raised in South Africa with two obsessions; cooking and the ocean. Before she could read she could wield a potato peeler. She loved being in the kitchen with Mom and Grandma, cooking up a storm and preserving all the fruits of their farm in Pretoria. She says, “Grandma’s kitchen opened first thing in the morning when Grandpa’s feet hit the ground. The daily menu was fit for a 5-star restaurant. (Except for the presentation, as Grandpa would have had a fit if his plate looked like modern art.) But the flavors were always spot on.” School holidays, she traded her apron for a swimsuit and the beaches of Durban, where she swam in the ocean from morning till evening with brothers, sisters and Dad.
Lizzie has been wielding that potato peeler in restaurants, hotels, lodges and yachts ever since. She has been an apprentice to top chefs around the world. She has traveled throughout Europe, England, America, Africa, Oman and the Caribbean to assimilate flavors and techniques. She explains the Liz Style of cuisine. “I take a taste of all the places I have been and fuse that into one dish. I love Asian flavors so there is always a hint of Asia in my dishes. My menu is healthy, light, with an explosion of flavors.”
Lizzie is a precious asset on Amazing. She has lots of experience with special diets and requests and goes out of her way to make sure the guests are happy and their taste buds are even happier. She is thrilled to be aboard Amazing because she believes a great crew makes the charter extra special, and the crew aboard Amazing is superb.
STEWARDESS NICOLE BOWMAN
Nicole is a Florida girl with a natural born love of sun and sea. She practically grew up in the surf and has always been mesmerized by the ocean and the creatures that live in it. Nicole was destined for the yacht charter industry. She loves boating, diving, water sports, and most of all working with people. She says, “Being on the water is second nature to me. There is nothing more amazing than waking up every morning in a beautiful tropical paradise!”
Nicole has been organizing parties, vacations, celebrations and been hostess to friends and family for years. Being an excellent stewardess comes effortlessly. She anticipates guests needs and gives them continual attention to make their vacation as fun, easy and relaxing as possible. She uses her funniest yacht-related incident as prudent advice to first time charter guests: Don’t board the dinghy and forget your shoes on the yacht. You will feel quite silly walking around town in a pair of (old/huge) crew flip flops!
Nicole is thrilled to be stewardess on Amazing, a gorgeous catamaran with loads of toys. She is a certified diver, excellent snorkeler and can hook a fish with a keen eye. If guests want a helping hand with their water sports fun, Nicole is ready to assist. Her goal is to help make every charter spectacular, above and below the water line.
