The top yacht chefs on social media 2021


On superyachts, food is one the most important elements that can make or break a charter. Therefore, chefs have an essential role on yachts, and they are constantly under pressure to meet high standards. Becoming a yacht chef takes hard work and dedication; all yacht chefs need basic yacht training and at least two years of experience in a professional kitchen. These highly skilled chefs have incredibly long workdays and very early starts. Serving the elite with unique food preferences and demands means yacht chefs have to be completely versatile.
