MEET THE CREW:
CAPTAIN: CHINO CHONOWITZ
CHEF: NOA NEUMANN
Chino always had a passion for travel and the water. He grew up in a small village in Israel surrounded by rivers and nature. As a young adult, restless and ready to travel, Chino took himself off to Africa for a year and decided then that he needed to come up with an idea of how to combine work and travel. While in South Africa he was exposed to the yachting industry in Cape Town and the prospect of becoming a charter yacht captain. Chino returned home with a dream to sail in the Caribbean. He received his 100T captain’s license and began working for a charter company running sailing charters in the Mediterranean.
Noa grew up in Jerusalem in the mountains and as a child she always enjoyed water sports and swimming. As a young adult she traveled to the USA, Central America and the Caribbean for just under 12 months. Noa then completed her degree in social work, met Chino and made the wonderful decision to join him.
Noa comes from a huge family with many cousins and their children. Her family’s favorite pastime is getting together around the dining table with numerous family members for meals every weekend.
Since the age of 16, she has worked in restaurants and coffeeshops as a waitress, bartender and a manager. She loves the hospitality industry and it’s a huge part of her personality. Her love and passion for cooking has grown immensely since working on charters. Her cuisine is Mediterranean based incorporating influences from her trip to Central America and the Caribbean.
After Noa and Chino met they were offered an opportunity to work together in the Caribbean. They worked in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for a year and then for a further 5 months in the northern Caribbean. Together, they completed more than 25 charters.
Chino loves boats, is an experienced captain with great patience and is always keen to teach others how to sail. He is also an avid fisherman with loads of experience in fish preparation having worked in aquaculture for a year. Chino loves nothing better than to assist guests with fishing from the yacht offering a sea-to-table experience with the catch of the day.
Chino and Noa are positive, friendly and engaging individuals who work extremely well together ensuring that you will have a 5-star experience, with great food, excellent service and loads of fun.
They love games and love to play and teach new games that they have on board. Be aware of Chino’s winning streak!
Both of them are scuba divemasters offering scuba onboard. Both love sport and exercise, and if you are an early bird, you'll catch them exercising on the bow of the boat. They have equipment onboard and will be more than happy to lead guests in a workout session (with or without equipment) or lead a Pilates class if preferred. These sessions would either take place on the boat or on the beach.
Chino and Noa can’t wait to have you onboard True Story and share this beautiful part of the world with you.
