    Andy Grocott

    Nationality: New Zealand

    I apprenticed aboard square-rig sailing ships on the New Zealand coast in the early 1990’s before heading overseas to work on Yachts. What I thought would be just a few years abroad has transformed into a 21 year career on yachts to date, 19 years as Captain. Having been with my current employer for over 13 years, I was fully involved with the design and build of The Beast, the Sports fisher and amphibious tender, and completed the build of their previous vessel VvS1. I enjoy the adventure, challenges and the responsibilities of being a Captain, and have a depth of experience having cruised many of the worlds yachting destinations. My favourite destinations would have to be the far north of New Zealand and Fiji. Both offer great fishing, diving, beautiful beaches and secluded anchorages. When not busy with The Beast I love to relax with my family camping near a beach, and take my kids fishing.

    Tai Ellis
    First Officer

    Nationality: New Zealand

    With over a decade of experience in the maritime industry, First Officer Tai has gained worldly experience in New Zealand waters and abroad. Tai’s broad skill base ranges from setting up and implementing comprehensive safety systems onboard, to farming sea cucumbers. Growing up in the Marlborough Sounds, in the South Island of NZ, he is probably more of a fish than a human. Freediving, spearfishing and fishing are just some of his ocean passions. Tai also shoots hoops and trains in boxing in his spare time.

    Calvin Burger

    Nationality: South African

    Calvin was born in Durban, South Africa and grew up sailing around the world with his parents. In 2004 he joined the superyacht industry as a qualified skipper. Five years later he came to his now homeland New Zealand and moved into the engineering sector. When Calvin isn’t in one of The Beast’s two engine rooms, you’ll find him chasing wind and waves on his kite or surfboards; he’s also a keen fisherman. When the surf’s flat and the winds are fair, Calvin will be buried in a book or watching a movie.

    Trina Amberger

    Nationality: New Zealand

    Formally trained and with seven years of superyacht experience, Trina has worked on both motor and sailing yachts. Her highlight in the industry to date was going through the Panama Canal and then sailing down to the Galapagos, Marquesas, Tahiti through to the Pacific Islands and onto New Zealand. Trina likes to take the simplistic approach to cooking; using locally sourced quality produce, enhancing natural flavours whilst keeping it fresh and clean on the plate. Her palate has been finely tuned by her travels and she enjoys bringing together Mediterranean, North African and Middle Eastern Flavours to create a wonderful dining experience. She also loves the clean flavours of Asian cuisine, naming Thai, Vietnamese and Indonesian as her top three of the region. When Trina isn’t cooking up a storm in the Galley, she loves scuba diving, listening to music, trying new restaurants with friends and learning about the wines of the world.

    Margy Swainson
    Chief Stewardess

    Nationality: New Zealand

    Growing up in central Auckland, Margy left New Zealand when she was 20 after 2 years in hospitality, in search of adventure and a never ending summer. After a summer living in Mallorca, Spain she joined a superyacht as a stewardess and the rest is history. After cruising the South Pacific, Margy fell in love with the islands and has since enjoyed being based between NZ and Fiji. After working in Fiji for 2 years on a remote tropical island, Margy returned to the industry onboard The Beast. A water baby since childhood Margy loves to explore the ocean whether its diving, exploring in the tender or hanging out on the beach.

    Veremo Tuilevu

    Nationality: Fiji

    Born and raised where the water is always blue and the sun is always hot (Fiji), Junior first pursued a career in Aviation in the private jet industry before becoming a superyacht agent and later crew. Not only being islander who is able to speak three languages that gets him around living in Fiji, he always has one of those so called ‘Bula’ smiles. Leaving his hometown almost a year ago for New Zealand to pursue one of his life goals with his kiwi partner, he has settled in well with The Beast crew (despite his ongoing rants of how cold it is) in the deck department where he is always listening to island reggae music and sometimes a little bit of Kenny Rogers. In his spare time, he is either chasing waterfalls and beaches or having a snack while watching the sun set.

    Abby Cadigan

    Nationality: New Zealand

    Abby hails from Nelson where she spent her childhood trying to keep up with two older brothers, riding sheep, fishing for eels and hunting for rabbits. A qualified personal trainer, Abby has worked on a broad range of vessels prior to the Beast. This includes a sport fishing boat and an expedition yacht which travelled through the Mediterranean and America. Loving all ocean related pastimes, Abby is partial to snorkeling, fishing and exploring reefs and beaches. Abby is always up for a challenge and this is evident with her boundless energy onboard The Beast.

    Anita Harrison

    Nationality: New Zealand

    Anita grew up in Whangarei, north of Auckland and spent time on or in the ocean in New Zealand’s beautiful far north. Well travelled, Anita has lived in Canada and the UK and travelled extensively while living abroad. With a comprehensive background in hospitality, Anita has a creative flare and can often be found making her own clothes or sketching. With a passion for fitness, she is also likely to out run anyone who dares to challenge her.

    Sam Burns

    Nationality: Australia

    Hailing from across the ditch, Sam grew up on the beaches of northern NSW. Involved in surf life saving and surfing from a young age, he is at home in the ocean. A self proclaimed law school drop out, Sam left university to work on an island in the Great Barrier Reef where he was able to fish, dive and spear dive on a daily basis. As the only Aussie on a predominantly Kiwi boat, Sam is reminded of this by his peers every day.

    Super Motivated Crew!

    "The crew were definitely one of the most motivated I have seen in a long time; and really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and well looked after, it was a real pleasure to meet them all, so that is a great asset. It is also essential to have such a good atmosphere for a relatively limited team who need to all help each other out, so it's great to see that part seems taken care of...." Charter Broker

    Food as absolute Perfection!

    Food (quality, presentation, creativity, etc.):
    "Absolute perfection! The food was incredibly healthy and yet I never felt we were lacking anything. Margy and Trina’s wine pairings were perfect and it’s great to know how many wine options can be offered in New Zealand, I like to be able to offer clients local produce." Charter Broker
