Crew ProfileCaptain: Ulf Schabacker
Ulf was born and raised in East Germany, before he moved to Munich where he studied Hotel/Catering Management and continued with Sport and Tourism Management. His love for the water started in his early years when he spent all summers at the German beaches, where he also got his first introduction in to sailing. After spending several years working in hotel and restaurant management in the German based 5 star Hotels Maritim, Arabella Munich and the well-known Relais Chateaux “Hambleton Hall” in Rutland Waters, England, his urge of exploring the seas led him to a maritime academy in England. He started delivering sail boats from anywhere in Europe until he got hired as a mate on his first Motor Yacht. Within one year he was offered his first position as captain. Over the course of his 15 years experience in the industry, Ulf has overseen 5 new build projects, several extensive refits and captained private and charter yachts in the most popular and also less known areas of the oceans.
As the master, Ulf’s primary focus is to ensure the safety of the guests, crew and the vessel. His duties range from navigation to accounting, planning and managing charters to the overall management of the yacht and the crew. He encourages all departments to work as a team to ensure that each charter will be a rewarding experience. He is operating “KEMOSABE” with the right balance between a formal and a casual ambiance which is desired by all guests.Chef: Wayne Gallo

Rolfe Peinke ~ Engineer
Hi my name is Rolf! I hail from the sunny shores of Durban, South Africa. I’ve been working on engines since I was just a wee pup, being handed this skill from my father and my father’s father. I entered the maritime industry over 10 years ago and to this day I wake up with a smile on my face being able to combine my passion for travel, engines and watersports. When I’m not twisting spanners you will find me on the race track in full leathers smashing lap records on Superbikes.Deckhand: Tyron Pretorious
Tyron Pretorius ~ Deckhand
I was born in the city of Nelspruit, South Africa and moved to a small farm town. It is in this place that my passion for the outdoors sparked. I was always out playing sports, camping and cycling. Before I discovered my passion for sailing the seas, I spent 3 years as a junior craftsman. I am glad I realized sooner rather than later as I can now focus on making your stay as adventurous and as fun as possible.
