Are you a chef/cook looking for a unique lifestyle position in Indonesia?

Are you interested in joining a world kiteboarding/ sailing/ surfing/ spearfishing expedition vessel?

An Offshore sailing Odyssey currently cruising Indonesia is seeking a professional, flexible, and adventurous chef to join their unique Quest, a world kiteboarding/ sailing/ surfing/ spearfishing expedition luxury catamaran.

This expedition will last 5 years, and we began our third expedition this May, 2019. We are a young and experienced crew and take every opportunity to kiteboard, surf, spearfish, paraglide and play, however applicants need to understand that this is a very dedicated position- food prep and provisioning for extended periods with 6-10 people is a huge undertaking. The vessel is owned by a group of like-minded individuals who are passionate about exploration by sail, and these are our “clients”. We don’t wear uniforms, we have a lot of fun, but we are professional, and our chef will have high standards for food and its presentation.

Chef has one of the guest cabins just forward of the galley. Has its own private head and ensuite/ shower. AC, etc. It’s very comfortable. Galley is standard Lagoon down- tight but workable. Domestic fridge, two freezers, 4 burner gas stove, new oven and all new galley (refit this year in the Philippines).

Seeking an applicant:

Who is flexible, resourceful, and creative with their cooking- able to provide High Quality meals for up to 10 persons efficiently . . .often under the restraints of very remote locations.
Has a keen appreciation for the earth and protecting the environment.

Responsible for provisioning the yacht for extended cruising (food, alcohol, consumables) and keeping a perfectly clean & tidy galley.
