Contact Us For More Information
Kerry comes from a long history in hospitality commencing many years ago as an airline
stewardess with an Australian carrier which led onto a position in Italy with Air Italia. Kerry has worked as a tour guide throughout Europe managing and co-coordinating up to 55 guests at one time. Kerry then took on the role of Food & Beverage Manager at a large Australian resort before opening ‘Primo E Secondo’ – a fine dining Italian restaurant with
her husband Robi in Noosa, Australia.
Kerry and Robi successfully ran their restaurant for 8 years before they received an offer too good to refuse and sold the business as a successful ongoing concept. In 2008 Kerry worked on DEBRA ONE, a 74ft Ferretti as sole stewardess and cook. This was a very
demanding role but nothing Kerry couldn’t handle. Kerry was one of the first crew ever onboard ANNABEL II when she was first launched in 2009. She has since worked aboard both private and charter yachts, ranging up to 32 metres and cruising globally.
Kelly has returned to Annabel II and the owner is delighted to have her back. She holds her STCW95, a recreational motor boat licence, senior first aid, silver service skills, wine service, bar skills, a good eye for detail and the ability to work under pressure. She is a non-smoker and when she is not enjoying good food and good company, she enjoys horse riding, gym, swimming, reading and learning about new destinations and people.
She speaks English fluently and conversational Italian.
Robi is a fully qualified chef who was born and trained in Italy. He has a huge range of experience running and working in restaurants, as well as aboard luxury yachts, having owned and operated fine dining Italian restaurants in Milan and Noosa, Australia with his wife Kerry.
Their successful restaurant ‘Primo E Secondo’ was awarded winner of the Italian ‘Golden Fork’ Award.
Whilst Robi is capable of preparing a wide range of international dishes, including Asian and Japanese, his specialty is the modern and classic Italian cuisine. Robi’s creations are not only tasty but also nutritious, and he is happy to provide nutritional consultancy for
guests and crew. He is also excellent at working to budgets to maximize your APA dollars!
Previous working experiences include working aboard 28m M/Y COHETE, working as relief chef on 32m S/Y RAPUTURE and M/Y NEVER ENOUGH. He joined Annabel II in 2009.
Over the past few years, he has sailed aboard both, private and crewed yachts. A non-smoker , he holds a STCW95, a recreational motor boat licence. Being an extremely active person, he enjoys an array of freetime activities, such as horse riding, motor biking, fitness, surfing, scuba diving, snow skiing and parachuting.
Robi is fluent in Italian and speaks good conversational English.
Jerry joins ANNABEL II as captain, he holds a 500GT ocean license and has years of experience. He started in the industry after working on cruise ships, from where he was offered a position on a private motor yacht, and got hooked in the luxury yacht sector. Prior to joining ANNABEL II, he was a 1st Officer and Relief Captain on a 45m MY. He enjoys watersports, cycling and motor sports and has an uncanny knack for fishing. In addition, Jerry is a talented blues harmonica player. He speaks Croatian, English and Italian.
During his nautical studies, Aleksa decided to move from his hometown and go to America where, as a young man, he gained working experience at various positions. His passion for the sea brought him back home and he entered the yachting industry as a deckhand and shortly after obtained his engineering license at Blue Waters in France. From here he gained his captain’s license. Aleksa is a passionate scuba diver. He speaks English and German.
After studying the Italian language and literature, and gaining teaching and translating experience, volunteering for culture-focused NGOs, and working in the events industry, Vesna decided to take a fresh new course and enter into the yacht charter industry. Her mother language is Serbo-Croatian, she speaks English and Italian and is working to improve her Spanish and French. Vesna is a sea lover, she is into yoga and happy to share her passion with you. She looks forward to welcoming guests aboard ANNABEL II.

Just wanted to personally write and thank you for an extraordinary week. Every aspect of the week on the boat with you and your crew was nothing but amazing. One couldn’t even start to outline every aspect of perfection and professionalism you all showed, from the precision planning, wonderful food and the genuine care in ensuring we were all looked after every minute of every day.
I’m afraid you may have set the bar to high for all and our expectations have now been set for any future charter we may go on. Please pass on our upmost gratitude and thanks to Jack, Sammy and Becky

The locations were beautiful, very well chosen by Andrew.
Annabell II is a great yacht, the whole family enjoyed it a lot.
We are looking forward to repeating this experience!
Charter on ANNABEL in Montenegro / Croatia, Jun 15
I have nothing but great things to say about our charter. Our crew displayed an impressive level of professional experience. The crew went to great measures to ensure that we were enjoying ourselves at all times. We were able to make it to several lively clubs. Which were exactly what we were hoping for. Sammy has an amazing talent and ensured we were well feed at all times. I had no desire to eat anywhere but the boat. Cheers.
