DECKHAND: Carina LEONE
Small Powerboat & RIB Master
Born and raised in Indiana, Carina spent her formative years bouncing between Fort Wayne, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois. It was the latter that really sparked her love for the water; every summer, the mystical pull of Lake Michigan drew her to the Indiana Dunes where she soon realized that a life on the water would be her new home.
Unfortunately, the extreme seasons of the Midwest did not lend for a life on the water and Carina decided to pursue a path geared towards law. She attended Huntington University where she acquired her Bachelor of the Arts degree, majoring in History, Political Science, and PreLaw with minors of Spanish, Psychology, and Non-Western and European History.
While the education and critical thinking skills were appreciated, life behind a desk wasn’t meant to be; Carina soon found herself missing the adventure, mystery and wonder of the ocean life.
After six months, Carina packed up her things and headed to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to begin her new journey. After nearly three years of working on private yachts ranging from 21m to 118m, she sought out a more active, spontaneous and water sports focused, charter experience.
You will now find her whizzing around on Seabobs and tenders with a huge smile on her face. She can be described as a friendly, charter-minded, water-sports loving, American.
STEWARDESS: Léla STUBBS
Food Hygiene Level 2
Tourist Guide in History & Culture
Léla was born into a family of water lovers, so naturally she has developed a deep love for the ocean and water sports from an early age.
A large influence on her growing up was living on a Game Reserve her mother managed for many years. Being surrounded by a hospitality environment from so early on was the beginning of shaping her natural affinity for hosting unforgettable guest experiences.
After completing school, a temporary job in the wine industry changed the trajectory of Léla’s life and she ended up working in various capacities within the industry for a further 9 years. It was during this time that she not only developed knowledge of wine (she even produced a few vintages), but also of hospitality.
Léla decided to spent the next four years guiding and cooking on tours throughout
Southern Africa, earning herself a tourist guiding qualification specialising in History and Culture. She then decided to explore further afield and find a career that would allow her to do so, while utilising her skills. She has since worked on board a luxury motor yacht in the Mediterranean, where it became apparent that all her life’s experience had perfectly groomed her to be a creative, meticulous and well rounded stewardess.
Léla is able to anticipate her guests’ every need and want with ease, and takes great pleasure in ensuring they have the time of their lives!
CHEF – Lucy BUTTERFIELD
STCW95 – Orchads Cookery - Padi Advanced
British born Lucy has lived in France from the age of 16. She ‘fell into’ yachting at a relatively early age and has since become an experienced chef and stewardess.
Lucy loves rising to the challenge of maintaining the very high standards required on board a superyacht and she enjoys the variety and excitement of knowing that no two days are ever the same. Lucy understands that the culinary journey is an essential ingredient for a fabulous time on board and her goal is to create the perfect experience for her guests through her passion for cooking,
Lucy trained at the Orchards Cookery School in the UK and she is passionate about using fresh local ingredients to create stunning dishes for her guests. She is always prepared to tailor menus to guests’ preferences and dietary requirements so that everyone can enjoy her cuisine. In her leisure time Lucy is often still found cooking, but she also loves getting outside for a hike, or going on a diving adventure.

Charter February 14-24, 2021 in Antigua area / European family of 8
The trip was a success indeed. The crew was super sweet and did everything to make Juan happy, the chef was excellent, he did all his requests, and was really really nice.
Broker's note: J. is not an easy client, he has his moments and he does not like the water (dunno why he wanted a boat), but he really enjoyed Christina Too!
D. was the one that enjoyed the most, he did all the water sports, wakeboarding every day, snorkeling and a lot of swimming!
Was a pity the wind, but still beautiful, Barbuda was the high point of the trip! Soooo beautiful.”
WELL DONE for this successful charter and THANK YOU for taking care of my clients !

Ruud, Lela, Carina and Greg,
We had a terrific time cruising with you over Christmas 2020 into the new year! Even with Covid making life difficult, you made our experience onboard unforgettable.
Greg, your ability to know exactly what our favortie meals were before we asked, Lela your positivity and great energy, Ruud and Carina, your skills in keeping Christina Too humming along... Awesome!
The younger generation wants me to describe the cruise as "dark" and it was :).
All the best,
D, S, S, B, M & A
Charter on February 26th – March 1st, 2020 in the Virgin Islands / American group of 8
Dear Christina Too,
To say we had an AMAZING EXPERIENCE would be the understatement of the century !
Alex, Marcelle, Hannah and Brent were awesome ! The secenery was incredible and the food was beyond spectacular !
We only wish stayed a few days longer.
We will definitely be back.
Charter December 28 to January 4, 2020 in the Virgin Islands / American group of 6
All was well thanks M.
The Christina Too is a lovely cat. Very comfortable. Pluses include great living area, nice flybridge eating area, Nice lounging areas on the main deck and the flybridge, a nice tender, and good water toys including sea bobs, excellent outward visibility from the main deck which helped prevent motion sickness.
There are two master cabins which while not particularly spacious were perfectly acceptable and had nice bathrooms. The other two cabins were similar in size but with limited storage and smaller bathrooms, still fine!.
Also nice for groups in that range from best to worst cabin wasn’t that substantial so no one felt cheated.
The crew were very attentive..
I feel everyone on board worked very hard to help put this together last minute.
I'd recommend her.
