Super Yacht crew on board of Luxury sailing yacht KAWIL:
The Captain on board of SY KAWIL is a Glaswegian born Ross Palmer, who ten years ago while working in Australia on a sail and dive yacht charter, saw a super yacht and realised the potential for a new yachting career. When returning to Britain, he worked a year of night shifts to pay for his yacht master course, obtained his license and then left for his first job on a yacht. After passing exams, attending courses and spending nine years working his way through the ranks Ross is now the Captain of the good ship KAWIL. Ross's yachting career has been exclusively aboard luxury charter yachts. He always puts in the extra effort to make each charter extra special, every time. On a more personal note, Ross is a keen kite boarder and longs for the day when he has a garage to restore and ride classic British motor bikes, a pastime which terrifies his girlfriend. 
Another Brit on board is Chef Rhiannon Rymer. Born in Hereford, England, she obtained a BA with honors in Business and Finance at university in Bristol before embarking on a career in financial services in London. Whilst working in the finance industry she qualified as an accountant and specialized in financial markets. At the age of 29 she decided to go travelling for a year... that was 4 years ago! After travelling through SE Asia and Australasia she rediscovered her passion for the ocean, cooking and adventure and hasn't looked back. Rhiannon obtained an advanced certificate in cookery from Ashburton Cookery School in Devon. She now enjoys preparing a diverse range of culinary delights tailored to the personal tastes and dietary requirements of KAWIL's guests.  Working and living on sailing yachts is a perfect fit for Rhiannon. She is extremely active and loves paddle boarding, scuba diving and swimming. 
First Mate Jay Scott-Doran has been sailing all his life starting in the north of England with small sailing dinghies, then onto more serious racing and competing in the world championships before moving onto superyachts in 2006. He has travelled extensively on land as well as on the sea. 
He completed his dive master qualification in the crystalline waters of Borneo where the amazing underwater sea life ignited a passion for underwater photography. Jay takes every opportunity to hone his skills with the goal of entering competitions. He enjoys sending guests home with souvenir photos of their snorkelling expeditions. Jay grew up in the countryside and has a love of the outdoors with mountain biking being a big passion, along with other action sports including windsurfing, skiing, snowboarding and rafting. He is responsible for keeping KAWIL's water toys 'at the ready' for guests and is a cheerful, patient instructor.

On top of these three distinguished crew, private yacht charter clients on board of SY KAWIL will also meet Australian Engineer Steven Bannon, and Stewardess Elena Hand. Together, KAWIL’s super yacht crew of four or five are a team whose consuming focus is to make guests happy and comfortable – whether by leaving them alone to seek out and enjoy their own privacy and serenity or by leading and participating in the unlimited fun and games available in our ocean paradise. They are committed to providing an unobtrusive, yet best of services with suitable and requested attention to detail with the hope all yacht charter guests on board will realise this and allow them to ensure their private yacht charter cruise will be an exhilarating, exclusive and relaxing as well as adventurous experience on an exceptional luxury sailing yacht.
