Cpt. Keith Allen

Keith has always had an adventurous spirit, inherited from an extremely nomadic family, mostly spread between Kenya, the U.K., U.S.A. and of course Australia, where he grew up. He has been fortunate enough to have been raised as a well travelled youth which enabled him to grow into someone who can build rapport and friendships with people from many different walks of life and cultures. A trait invaluable when considering the multicultural and close-knit conditions living and working aboard a yacht.

Keith has sailed around all of the windward isles, from St Maarten to Grenada; the Dutch Caribbean, Panama, the Andalusian coast of Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Croatia and the Greek Islands in the Saronic Gulf of the Mediterranean. He has also spent time working on a superyacht that sailed up the east coast of the United States from Fort Lauderdale to Rhode Island as well as around Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard but realized his heart and true passion was in sailing and smaller boats. Keith’s favorite part about skippering on yachts is hunting for unique bays and the little hidden gems on the islands; from the best beach bars to reefs full of life that can only be reached by boat.

Keith is a certified divemaster and free diver and loves hunting for fresh spiny lobster to serve, butterflied and grilled in his signature style paired with one of his craft cocktails. A passionate photographer, he loves providing memories to guests that will last a lifetime and offers several packages for guests to choose from to ensure no moment is missed. Whether it’s chauffeuring guests to dinner by tender, or towing them with tube or wakeboard, you are in safe and capable hands with Keith at the helm.

Jessa was born in Colorado and raised in Texas, and her love for the great outdoors began at a young age. Growing up, her family took vacations to the beach every year. It wasn’t until 2017 that she decided she wanted to live and work in the tropics full time. She quit her desk job and traded in the cubicle for the galley. Jessa began her career as a yacht chef in May 2017, and she loved the yachting lifestyle so much that she spent the next three seasons working on sailing yachts in Croatia. Since then, she has traveled to four different continents, including Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and explored many of the Caribbean islands.
The USVI and BVI quickly became one of her favorite places after sailing and working here at the end of 2018, and she knew instantly that she wanted to further her career here. In 2019 she began her life in the Caribbean and has been loving every day since. She enjoys sailing, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, and being able to spend every day on the water!

In addition to the adventurous lifestyle Jessa lives, she loves creating beautiful and delicious meals in the galley. She grew up helping her dad in the kitchen and on the grill, always working to perfect new tex mex meals and southern comfort foods. Her family was constantly making homestyle meals and this is when her passion for cooking began. She believes that cooking is all about sharing, and being able to share unique and tasty dishes with the guests is so important to her!

One of her favorite parts about traveling is being able to experience new cultures and cuisines, and incorporating these cuisines into her own menu. Seafood is a personal favorite of Jessas, to cook and to eat! Jessa finds it very special to be able to use the local seafood for her dishes. On board Felix, Jessa will ensure that your vacation is filled with wholesome, fresh, and local meals. She has experience working with all dietary restrictions and food allergies, and will work with you and your group to create the perfect menu for your week.
