Chef - Marcus Rossi

There’s nothing he enjoys more than giving guests an extraordinary experience catered to their specific tastes. Marcus is a talented chef that can work a menu around any dietary requirements and needs. He has the confidence and experience to put his hand to anything but what he really loves to cook with is seafood. Where Marcus is from, if you’re not catching fish you’re cooking them. His style of cooking is somewhat Mediterranean with roots in French and English fine dining. In his spare time Marcus enjoys eating local cuisines, traveling, skiing, snowboarding, rugby, tennis and football.

Chief Stewardess - Frida Ecklund

Frida grew up in a small village in central Sweden. Her taste for travel led her first to the French and Austrian Alps where she worked for 2 winter seasons. She got her start on boats in Croatia where she worked as a cook/stew aboard a 50ft charter sailboat (Navigare Yachting). She later graduated to superyachts and wound up as stewardess aboard the mega cat Hemisphere. After Frida and Zack met, she developed her longstanding interest in cooking and they became a captain/chef team aboard the charter yacht Jupiter. After Jupiter, Frida decided to pursue her dream of becoming a helicopter pilot and began her training last fall in Norway. She has more to do on that front, but has over 40 flight hours and will have flown solo by the time she joins SeaQuell.
