Crew Profiles:

Ross Matthews

Originally from South Africa, has always had an unwavering passion for sport, travel and the ocean. His first time on a boat was with his grandfather at age 3, and he can’t help but wonder if this is where his sense for adventure and exploration stems from. They do say “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”. Ross moved to the UK at the age of 18 to travel Europe, go to school and start a more conventional career as a physical therapist, although this all changed while on a short road-trip in Australia. It was here that not only did he find his love for sailing, he also met Daniella and together they made it their mission to make a life out of doing what they really loved.

 

Daniella “Dee” Cox

Originally from the UK, was brought up in the city of Bristol. Her parents had a passion for the outdoors and most summer weekends were spent at her family caravan. She fondly remembers swimming in the lake, fishing with “paps” and cooking outdoors around the fire, all memories that have strongly shaped her lifestyle choice today. Dee, like many of her friends, began pursuing a more traditional path of University, to study Psychology, followed by a career as a Child Psychologist. However, a one year working holiday in Australia opened her eyes to a completely different lifestyle, one which reminded her of her fondness for the water and the outdoors. Ross introduced Dee to the boating industry and she hasn’t looked back since.

Ross and Dee met in the small town of Airlie Beach on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. Their passion for travel, which brought them together over 5 years ago, continues to fuel their love for the tourism industry, sailing and exploring the world.

It all began at an award-winning adventure tourism company in the Whitsunday Islands (Australia). They have since chartered together in the Mediterranean and most recently the British Virgin Islands. After five years in the industry they have seen some of the most beautiful places in the world and couldn’t be happier with their lifestyle choice.

Ross and Dee create a relaxed environment onboard and facilitate the fun had by all in a natural way. They always aim to make the charter personalised to each guests needs, and this shows as no two charters are the same. They love finding beautiful new bays to explore around the islands and a little bit of spontaneity. Ross and Dee also love to entertain, whether that be with friends at home or guests on the boat. Dee’s passion for cooking paired with Ross’ story telling and personable nature makes them a strong team and great company for any occasion.

As a couple they share an interest in snorkeling, diving and marine conservation stemming from their time spent working on the Great Barrier Reef. When traveling, Ross and Dee believe a true way to appreciate a countries culture is through its food, thus are always intrigued to try new dishes. They share a love for food and although on charter Dee takes charge in the galley, Ross proves pretty handy on weeks off.

Together this enthusiastic and vibrant couple are excited to continue their journey in the charter industry and can’t wait to see what else it holds in store for them.

Lagoon 56 (2018) 'Respite at Sea' Reviews
August 2020

My name is Jennifer Blotti and I live with my family in Switzerland. I enjoy traveling a lot and I work as a family travel blogger since many years. After several sailing vacation experiences, in August 2019 we were lucky to meet Daniella and Ross who took us on a catamaran to the Cyclades Islands in Greece. We did not hesitate to contact them again this year for our trip to Croatia because they are able to give us wonderful vacations. Daniella is not only an excellent cook, she is extremely careful to make everything perfect.
Her skills in the kitchen are incredible, she can transform everything into excellent dishes, from presentation to the variety of what she offers. She is very attentive to the preferences and needs of the customer. She has delighted us with always different dishes, she has managed to enhance the local raw materials, she has always satisfied our requests.
In addition, she always knows how to involve children (our 10 year old twins) in fun activities. It’s nice to see her always with a smile. We have always felt very safe in skipper Ross’ hands, even in the most difficult weather situations. Ross is very precise, responsible and skilful in finding solutions to every problem in order to make the customer feel at ease and will not let you miss anything. The unique places he has made us discover have been chosen with care, he informs about everything and these are the best qualities that a skipper can have. Ross has always organised fun activities for us, so as to involve the whole family. Ross is also a sunny person who always welcomed us with a smile. Last but not least, he knows how to prepare excellent cocktails!
I believe that Daniella and Ross are a winning couple, of the highest level, able to turn your holiday into a dream. And we hope to spend our holidays with them next year too.

August 2020

We have just returned from our wonderful sailing holiday through the Cyclades Islands in Greece with our Family. Our holidays were unforgettable also thanks to the fact that the crew on board was exceptional. For this reason we would like to inform you that both the hostess Daniella Cox and the captain Ross Matthews, both assigned by your agency, have worked with extreme professionalism and enthusiasm, taking care to fulfill all our requests. Daniella has a particular talent for cooking, her dishes have proved beyond our expectations, always presented and served with care and love. Ross has always been careful not only to drive the boat but to make children participate and active, always demonstrating excellent professionalism and availability. Thank you very much.

July 2020

I wished I could put 11/10 for these two. Dee and Ross went beyond expectations. Dee always had a beautiful smile on her face and cooked amazing food. She was always paying attention to details and was really caring with us. Rosco did a fantastic job at making sure we were always comfortable and informed on what was going on. From the moment we stepped foot on the yacht he made us feel comfortable and at ease. He has a super friendly and relaxed manner and really made the week for us.

July 2020

I’ve had the pleasure of having some outstanding Captains and First Mates in the past in the past, but Ross and Dee completely step changed any experience we ever had. Ross was phenomenal, from being an excellent, hospitable host to his ability to park his yacht in the smallest of spaces! He was a fantastic captain, always in control and always had a smile on his face. Nothing was too much trouble and Ross would jump at the opportunity to please the guests! Dee impressed us all, her breakfast spreads were outstanding, her lunches even more impressive and her dinners absolutely delicious. I have no idea how she made such elaborate feasts and so many items (all perfectly hot) in such a small kitchen. Her skill is truly impressive! Dee also ensured that each person’s tastes were met, tailoring our portions to our personal preferences. She also kept the yacht communal areas immaculate and provided great advice for each of the ports. These two did an outstanding job and we will be requesting them again next year without a doubt.

July 2020

What a week, these two make an incredible team and I can’t thank them enough. Let’s start with Dee. She is an adorable bundle of energy with an uncanny ability to make her whole crew feel better about themselves just by bouncing around the yacht. A “Michelin-starred chef” projected to have more insta followers than Kylie Jenner by 2021, this girl could whip a King’s banquet using only a billycan and a bunsen burner. I am already so jealous of her future children’s lunch boxes. Now Rosco, what an absolute 11/10 legend- great banter, made everyone feel at ease on the boat very quickly, ensured everyone had a turn at helping out- whether it was tying fenders or lowering the anchor, whilst making everyone feel at ease doing so. Super chill guy with positive energy over absolutely everything. Would recommend Rosco and Dee to friends for any future trips and would 100% request them on any future trips of mine.

June 2020

Rosco the salty sea dog was an absolute legend! Great wind awareness and sailing skills, he took the time to teach us a lot throughout the week. We had so much fun with him and Dee, both always smiling with an amazing ability to make you all feel like one big family. They make an awesome couple and a great team on the boat. Daniella went over and above with her hosting and made an incredible variety of fresh and delicious food – I was very impressed by the quality and variety and felt very lucky to have our own chef onboard, could not recommend them both enough.
