CREW HOUSING

he yachting industry is nothing if not unpredictable and transient in nature and because of this we make sure that we are as accommodating as possible. When choosing to stay in one of the Smart Move crew houses you truly are making a “Smart Move,” both financially and career wise. The idea of being tied into monthly rental payments does not appeal because who knows how long you will be in Fort Lauderdale. For this exact reason, we make sure you can pay by the week ensuring funds -which are often limited- are not tied up. On the other hand, if you anticipate being in town for only a week and your plans change, we will happily offer you a special reduced monthly rate. We are able to differentiate ourselves from other companies in Fort Lauderdale by allowing your stay with us to begin on your chosen day. You are the Captain of your crew house experience. For example, if you move in on a Wednesday, your week runs Wednesday to Wednesday. If you want

6

to move in on the 7th of a month, your month will run from the 7th to the 7th. We are here to make your crew house experience as convenient as possible. The complete freedom crew housing provides is truly worry-free and completely stress-free. You can come and go as you like and, because all our crew houses work with electronic door codes (and no keys), access to our crew houses are 24/7. Renting by the bed gives you all the benefits of renting a whole house and using all amenities without paying for it. All linens and towels are provided, so all you really need are your personal belongings. You can move out at any time of the day or night without restrictions – you are a free agent. Only certain of our properties work well as shared crew houses. Our main focus is location, location! The freedom that comes with staying in our crew houses is great because if transportation is an issue, they are all conveniently situated around SE 17th

BY SHELLEY ISAKOWITZ, SMART MOVE

Street. There are many crew agencies and maritime schools located around the SE 17th Street area, so job hunting and furthering your education is much easier. A real advantage is networking when staying in our well positioned crew houses. The key to the yachting industry is truly who you know and being in the right place at the right time. Often our crew house tenants get together to have BBQs and many have landed dream jobs just be spending time in one of our crew houses and chatting to other yachties. Being able to vacate one of our crew houses and travel at the drop of a hat, while exploring the world, is what we as a company try to ensure you are able to do. Staying in one of our prime located crew houses with all the freedom it provides puts you in an ideal position to reach your dreams goals. Move Smarter, Live Better.

LUXURYLIVING

LUXURY LIVING Curated by Our Luxury Lifestyle Ambassadors at Loom Luxury Linens

S

ummer is a great season for outdoor entertaining. With warm weather, and delicious fruits in their prime, there is no better time to dazzle your guests with your extraordinary hosting talents. There doesn’t have to be a special occasion, just a good group of people, some creative décor, and delicious food and drinks around the table. When entertaining outdoors, there are a few things to keep in mind: Keep guests properly hydrated. Pour guests water, at his or her seat, prior to sitting down. Also, it’s good to have a nearby water pitcher for quick refills. Make sure plates, silverware, and décor items are heavy enough (or secure) to stay in place when windy weather can be present. Use a napkin ring to add flare to the table, while keeping napkins from flying away. Also, make sure throw pillows and chair cushions are tied down or weighted. Avoid over decorating the table. While it can be fun to create a beautiful table-scape, the outdoors have less storage and nearby counters to move things to. A great centerpiece, table runner, and some flickering candles can do the center of a table justice. Add color and style with things that are put into use. napkins, napkin rings, chargers, and serve-ware can top off the look, while also being functional. So, why not make this summer one to remember, by hosting a memorable get together? use natures back drop, a few recipes that include seasonal fruits and vegetables, and create yourself a delightful gathering. There is no better time.

Diary of

A CHARTER CHEF o we’re on our way again, we’ve had a crazy busy few weeks back in civilization, got a lot done, recharged our batteries, let off steam, ate some sushi and mingled with members of civilized society and of the opposite sex. We finished up our season in style, the last few guests were really great, fun to cook for and great to have onboard. We departed the uSVI without delay, the weather was an issue with heavy following seas, but we persevered. Our first stop was Puerto del Rei in Puerto Rico, sports fish heaven, we didn’t stay long.The captain saw the weather window and we took off, hugging the coast around Puerto Rico, over the top of Dominican Republic, then north West past Cuba into the calm Bahamian waters to Long Island. We had a brief stop near the Stella Maris Resort to take in the incredible turquoise hues and do a quick recce of the area, as we’ll be spending our summer through these waters. getting back to Fort Lauderdale, there was a buzz of excitement among the crew, we missed our cars, the shopping, friends, family, ease of business, the restaurants and civilization in general. It’s funny when you spend so long away, you forget the little things, the good and the bad, like, well, traffic lights, decent phone service and internet, mail and decent sushi. The girls went crazy clothes shopping, I bought some shirts, finally giving in to the girl’s abuse regarding my only two shirts that are acceptable evening attire. Anything more than two evenings off between charter and

14

LAUDERDALEAHEAD.COM

I’m back in my W-anchor shirt number one. Blue with white anchors, white with blue anchors…. I got to see my family that flew over from Ireland, met my brand new nephew, cool little chap, and my niece who both enjoyed Disney, I heard all about Elsa and Mickey and the fireworks and the sun, yeah, literally the sun, we don’t really have one of those at home. I also had a great evening in Miami with a couple of quiet drinks. That night I stood on a balcony, on the 17th floor at a friend’s place, and it occurred to me that I seem to have acquired a fear of heights. Is that a side effect of living at sea level most of my adult life? We’re now heading into a nice summer season, we’re all eager to

go, we’ve had some minor works done onboard and we’re ship shape! Everyone’s had a little down time, much needed break, but we’re all keen to get back at it. Our upcoming trip will be exciting, repeat guests cruising the gorgeous Exumas, Conception and Long Island. We’re sure to impress, and must do, as their last trip was obviously good enough to rebook, the pressure is on but we’re all up for the task and ready to put on our best show. These are some of the best waters in the whole region, there’ll be lots of diving, water sports, beach set ups and BBQ’s. Provisioning for this trip has been quite enjoyable. no concern or regard for when the stores receive their shipment, just a continuous flow of fresh products gracing the clean, cool misted shelves. I hit Fresh Market for


LAUDERDALEAHEAD the best organic fruits, salads and vegetables. They have a great butchery there, and a grand selection of spices, interesting rubs and basting sauces. I join the other yacht chefs and stews doing their best to empty the shelves at Publix on 17th Street. having three carts is tough, some of these guys are rolling with seven or more. The friendly cashiers talk about our adventures, and even seem to get excited when they get a “floor toucher,” a receipt so long it touches the floor. With so many marinas and shipyards in the area, along with the general affluent nature of the area, that location is in the top three most profitable Publix stores in Florida. I also stopped by Finnster Murphys seafood purveyor. Their catch is so fresh and wonderfully varied. I bought plenty of fresh scallops, some incredible local red snapper, huge side of grouper, some spiny lobster, mahi, cockles from nZ and mussels from PEI. Provisioning is an art, there’s a lot to buy, to put it together, get to the boat, get on board and put away quickly, making sure everything fits. It’s essential

to put things in their designated places, not only so you can always find them, but if you have an empty space, you’ve probably forgotten something. On a trip like this, off the beaten track, whatever I don’t have, I won’t have. There’s no such a thing as “sorry sir, we don’t have any eggs left,” or “I’m afraid we’ve run out of……..” well anything really, milk, sugar, flour, ice cream, salad, tomatoes, onions,

cream cheese, chicken breast, wine or Fiji water. If I run out of anything, which is kind of rare, I have to go without, hopefully without effecting anything. My captain will have no sympathy, nor compassion for my difficulties associated with running out of cream, red onions or shrimp. These guests are a mixed group with kids. They have requested real “American” food without the fufu stuff, they’re not looking for foie gras and caviar, they want basic food cooked and prepared to a high standard, with alternate options for their guests. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have been happy about that, but now I’m thirty and like, super responsible and mature, I’ve learned that there’s a challenge with every dish. Yeah, I’ll make you spaghetti and meatballs, and yeah they’re going to be awesome. I’m going to make ‘em like your grandma does, only better!! Well... that’s the idea anyway. Life right now is great, surrounded by great people, working hard and enjoying everything for what it is.

This, I won’t call it a job, I’ll call it an adventure that pays the bills, it is great. It opens many doors and expands one’s horizons. You meet people from all over the world, from all corners of life, from the South African farmer’s kids to the uber rich, property developer or energy mogul. It offers an insight into different ways of life and wealth you can actually smell. It’s always important to remember your roots, to never let

it change you, not become arrogant or try to live a life you don’t belong in. I’m looking forward to another few years in this, but I’m not a lifer, I miss restaurant kitchens and would kind of like an actual home with, like a proper bed and a car that I can drive more than a few weeks a year. Oh, yeah, and perhaps a woman too, since I’m all mature and responsible and what-not now.

MISO GLAZED SPINY LOBSTER, DUMPLIGS & LEMONGRASS BROTH Fresh Lobster, Whole, Alive (one per person) 1/3 Cup Sake 1/3 Cup Mirin 1/3 Cup Miso Paste 3 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar 3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce Now, you can use any fish in this dish, feel free to use Salmon or grouper, hog Snapper, halibut or, sustainably caught Chilean Sea Bass. This dish was made famous with the latter in nobu. The idea is to mix all ingredients well. If using lobster, ethically kill it with a sharp knife through the back of the head and down through it’s “face.” Pull off the tail, trim and reserve the trimmings. If you have loads of time, boil the cleaned out heads and legs in a light vegetable broth, strain and reduce. If you don’t, buy a can of lobster stock or a carton of decent chicken stock, if you wish. I’d then add a stem of lemongrass, three lime leafs, season with fish sauce and thinly sliced chills and a dash of soy. This will make a lovely aromatic broth for your dumplings, if you decide to make them. The easiest and most efficient way to do that is with wonton wrappers. Cut up your reserved trimmings (or feel free to use ground chicken or chopped up raw shrimp) and mix with finely sliced spring onions, cilantro and a little fresh red chili. Fold into the wonton wrappers using a little corn flour and water mix to stick them together. These little guys will poach in about 3 minutes in your broth right before serving.

HERB OF THE

MONTH

LIME LEAF

Marinate your halved lobster tail or fish in your glaze in a tray refrigerated between two and four hours. When ready, put under a hot broiler, re-basting every couple minutes until just cooked, should be no longer than around 7 minutes. The best way to check if any fish is cooked, is to pierce the fish at it’s thickest part with a metallic spice, or thin knife tip, hold for a couple of seconds, remove and put to your lips. If it’s cold it’s raw, if it’s warm its perfect, if it’s hot it’s overcooked. If you use a thermometer, and follow uSDA guidelines, it’s overcooked. Serve in a bowl with it’s broth, the dumplings and some fresh cilantro, toasted sesame seeds, and some finely sliced spring onions!

Yes, I’ll consider it a herb, as you consider a bay leaf a herb. Buy it, and freeze it because you’ll never use even a small pack of them before they shrivel up and die. These potent little beauties will transform a simple stock into an aromatic Thai style broth with an incredible citrus aroma and fresh taste. They are a staple ground down in a green curry, thrown into a Tom Young

Hung spicy Thai broth, goes great with lemongrass and works in desserts and even cocktails. Have fun, experiment. Remember that lime leaves belong in a wonderful family or Thai ingredients. Think of them on your chopping board with a small bad ass red chili, stalk of lemongrass, some cilantro, spring onions, garlic and fish sauce. Have some fun! Taste everything.

Recipes previously shared by Ben Dineen, sole chef on a busy 142’ Charter Motor Yacht in the Caribbean

BRAISED KUROBUTO PORK BELLY Pork belly is the underside of swine and the basis of the wonderful bacon. This fatty slab of meat is cheap and often found in decent butchers’ shop and Asian markets. It’s an amazing piece of meat.

chicken stock. Either way, I’ll cook it in a vac pack bag (or in a good quality zip loc bag) in water at 80 degrees C for 24 hours.

First, decide what you want to do with it. Do you want it to end up on a BBQ? If so, you’ve rubbed it with a pork rub or a collection of spices and brown sugar, bagged it in butter, chicken stock, a bit of soy sauce, black pepper, thyme and juniper berries.

With braised meats, always cool to handling temperature in its liquid to stop it getting tough, then take out of its bag, delicately taking off herbs and spices, put it in a shallow tray and apply weight, lots of weight. When cold, (about 4 hours or so), I’ll cut into inch thick strips about 4 inches long, against the grain.

Alternatively, I’ll go all Asian on this, star anise, a bit of soy, some fish sauce, a whole red chili, some sweet chili sauce, lime leaves and a stick of lemongrass, topped off with some

The Asian recipe will be gently pan fried in a dry pan, the excess fat will render out, they will caramelise beautifully in the pan, at the end, when equally darkened on all sides, I

will drain out the fat, and add in equal parts of about 3 tablespoons of soy and sweet chili sauce which will quickly reduce to a thick delicious sauce before plating, often accompanied with scallops and Asian slaw, or atop a noodle dish, or beside some white rice and sautéed pak choi. The BBQ pieces will grill beautifully, rendering out its excess fat, causing flames to lick it tenderly, dip its dark caramelised self into some good quality BBQ sauce, dark rum mix, then while its crisping back up, take a swig of rum for the chef, and a dash over your darkened, sweet and tender soldiers, causing a fiery celebration.

IRISH POTATO SALAD Super simple, great for BBQ’s, different than your regular potato salad, a play on the old Irish Boiled Bacon and Cabbage with Potatoes. The textures are great, very vibrant in color and flavors. 2 Lbs

THE EFFECTS OF MOISTURE ON CARPET AND FABRICS ON BOATS BY DANNY RODRIGUEZ, OWNER, CHOICE FLOOR CARE oisture poses serious risks to many boat owners. Moisture can affect upholstery, draperies, carpet and other floor coverings and can cause a lot of damage. however, moisture gets in, it can result in damage. Some examples of moisture damage to boats include: carpet delaminating, browning of fabrics, mold and mildew. If measures are not taken on time, it could lead to the replacement of the carpet and fabrics, as well as the floors, and also result in some health issues. If a carpet has been affected by moisture and remains wet after two days, it becomes a good breeding place for mold. The material the carpet is made of makes it possible for it to absorb and retain moisture and molds, making the carpet get larger in size. These units are fibrous and porous and retain moisture providing favorable conditions for molds and mildew to grow and multiply. The elevated moisture content in a

boat can also contribute to an allergic reaction. In excess, it increases the likelihood of respiratory and pulmonary diseases. Feeling sick, chills, fatigue, breathlessness, cold feet or headaches are the main long-term symptoms caused by a moist environment. A new study found that it could have a greater chance of developing nasal allergies in children. Allergies are a hypersensitive state of an organism, like humans, to a specific substance (allergen) when it is inhaled, ingested or touched. The consequences are mainly related with respiratory problems such as asthma or sinusitis, or lung infections such as bronchitis. Excess moisture resulting to improper humidity can aggravate the symptoms of people with fibromyalgia or increase the pain in rheumatic people. Excess moisture favors the presence of mites, fungi and bacteria, these organisms can cause serious problems

such as rash or atopic dermatitis. It also encourages the growth of mold, an organism with spores that can cause respiratory problems and develops irritating allergens and sometimes toxic substances. The most suitable control for mold is moisture care itself, as it does not grow in the absence of moisture. The best thing to do is have a professional carpet, upholstery, and drapery cleaning company clean these fabrics regularly. This will insure that all porous materials are free from dirt, mold, and other unhealthy substances. Proper care and action will save your carpet, upholstery, and draperies eliminate the chances of harmful bacteria that are capable of causing health issues. Remember to call Choice Floor Care at 561-320-1177 for all of your professional carpet, upholstery, and drapery cleaning services.

1611 N FEDERAL HWY., FORT LAUDERDALE, FL 33305 (954) 563-4141 • WWW.CATALINARESTAURANT.NET

RESTAURANT REVIEW BY KARA A. KELLAR

have to be honest, as a lifetime resident of Fort Lauderdale, I have driven past Mario’s Catalina countless times and never had a second thought. Friends would recommend it and I would brush it off, suggesting something newer and more trendy. I have to tell you… I have missed out on YEARS of delicious cuisine! While I can’t turn back the clock, I sure am making up for lost time. There is something about the comfortable opulence that adorns the interior of owner, Mario’s, den of decadence that just welcomes you to sit, unwind, and enjoy countless glasses of his signature white or red sangria. My favorite libation though

20

is his mojito, made fresh to order by the glass, or by the pitcher, complete with a sugarcane stick garnish. nightly, Mario is there to welcome you in to Catalina as you would be welcomed in to a close friend’s home, with warmth and a friendly handshake. Once you arrive at your table, you’ll be greeted by the dazzling wait staff and a plate full of crispy plantain chips with Mario’s signature chimichurri. I could write sonnets about this chimichurri. If you’re with a group, I recommend the Catalina Platter. It is the perfect introduction to the cuisine of Mario’s Catalina, as it includes various options from his appetizer menu, including

Mario’s specialty drinks from left to right: Red Sangria, White Sangria, Mojito, Frozen Lemonade (with or w/o alcohol), Frozen Strawberry Lemonade (with or w/o alcohol) Photo Credit: Mario’s Catalina Restaurant Facebook LAUDERDALEAHEAD.COM

his one-of-a-kind tamale with pork; empanadas; succulent chicken chunks; and breaded ham croquettes. After warming up with Mario’s Catalina Platter and a signature cocktail… it is time to move on to the main event. Every entree comes with a handcrafted salad, black beans and rice, and plantains. Menu staples include the incredibly flavorful Mario’s Beef (also commonly known as Vaca Frita), grilled Argentinean Skirt Steak with garlic Shrimp, and Paella. If you’re in the mood for some theater with your dinner, you must try the whole, fried snapper which your server will de-bone tableside at your request. What would a meal this opulent be without dessert? nothing. That’s what. Mario offers an unbelievable plethora of dessert options ranging from a chocolate decadence cake to pistachio cheesecake. My preference, as always, is something more traditional like the homemade tres or quatro leches cake with an espresso or cappuccino to top it off. Whatever your preference is, Mario’s Catalina always delivers the goods (and then some). Be prepared to leave full!

CUSTOM ART GLASS ADDS ELEGANCE TO YACHT INTERIORS

BY KAREN JURGENS, KRYSTAL GLASS COMPANY he owners of the 145’ luxury motor superyacht Island heiress knew they wanted to complete her interior renovation with a spectacular 10’, illuminated art glass showpiece in the main salon where they entertain most. Rob and Dana had their hearts set on custom carved and etched glass with a tranquil underwater scene of fish, sea life, sunken treasure, and other elements of nautical art that would gently change color with rotating LED lights. This special art glass would not only be enjoyed by the couple, it also needed to impress guests to increase the yacht’s appeal as a charter. Finding the right glass artist to create the custom glass etching was their first step. They called Krystal Glass Company, a custom fine art glass company celebrating 35 years, and made a visit to their South Florida showroom. “You provided a comfort level for us,” Dana said. “We knew we were at the right place just by talking to you on the phone.”

They scheduled a consultation with Peter Edward, glass artist and president, to discuss the art glass they envisioned as a stunning room divider. he created custom art with all the marine designs they wanted. Once the art was approved, the glass etching and carving was completed at his art glass studio in Pompano Beach, Florida. “The choices at Krystal glass Company were amazing. Much more than the others had,” Dana said. “Peter Edward’s talent really came through on his website. That gave us an immediate level of confidence. Once we talked with him, we knew he understood our need. he really listens, he told us what would look best, and he hit it out of the ballpark with his creation for us. We love it, and it is much more than we expected. It looks amazing, nothing short of stunning.” “nautical designs are popular here in South Florida and it is my most requested art theme,” Peter Edward said. “I let the client specify every aspect, and I create one-of-a-kind custom designs for them. Aquariums never go out of style. People love them in art glass because there is no maintenance. ” Krystal glass Company recently created another custom marine design, an illuminated art glass for the aft window of no Agenda while it was under renovation for all new interiors by IK Yacht Design in Dania Beach,

LAUDERDALEAHEAD.COM

Florida. The project was completed in a very short time frame because the owner, Lorry, had plans to take the sportfishing boat out for the summer. Peter Edward worked closely with Lorry to create his exact specifications. The art included sea life, fish, a sunken treasure chest, and sun rays shining down on the focal point of a sexy, topless mermaid with long, flowing hair. The existing window was replaced with sturdier 1/2” tempered safety glass etched and carved with the custom design. “I was 100 percent satisfied, which for me, is extremely uncommon,” Lorry said. “no stress involved during the project at all. They delivered when they promised they would. They were very easy to communicate with and are pleasant, easy going people, open minded, responsive and very creative. Karen and Peter are true professionals.” Zak Kadosh, president of IK Yacht Design, also commented on working with Krystal glass Company for the project. “As a design firm that caters to many clients, you make our work easier,” he said. “Your company proposed a design that fits well with our client’s boat, and you produced it within the time frame needed. We are very happy with the outcome.” Krystal glass Company can be reached at (954) 973-2998. www.KrystalglassCompany.com

BY JOHN DECARO

PRESIDENT, ALL OCEAN YACHTS

ALL OCEAN YACHTS All Ocean Yacht is please to announce the design release of its latest Explorer Yacht, the All Ocean 133’ (40.5) Bray Design, Ah (All hemispheres) OCEAn ROVER Explorer Yacht. Bray Yacht design utilized their awarding winning high efficiency hull design and created the basic design and layouts, then a team approach was employed to refine all aspects of the vessel to assure it exceeds the mission parameters of a worldwide exploration and charter vessel capable of operations in all hemispheres. The team members involved are Pat Bray of Bray Design, John DeCaro of All Ocean Yachts, Winston Clarke excaptain of Bigfish, Michael Kirschstein of Kirschstein Design and David Darwent, D2 Project Management. The team brings a superb balance of design expertise and practical experience to the design and build that is rare to find. This team created a highly seaworthy, low maintenance and operating cost vessel with features that you rarely see in a vessel in this size range. The AOY Ah OCEAn ROVER is a highly flexible platform that can be configured to meet a host of different uses, extended cruising, remote exploration, scientific work and worldwide charter operations in All hemispheres. Some of the Ah OCEAn ROVERS’S exceptional features are the extensive use of glass to create an atmosphere that allows the owner and guest to always be interactive with the environment they are in. The primary layout has an owner’s deck behind the wheelhouse that allows for stunning views from all areas of the owner’s

suite, in addition they have a large private aft deck that can be configured to their requirements from lounging to workout area. The aft deck over looks the massive tender deck which can accommodate a wide verity of boats and toys. The deck can comfortably fit a primary tender of up to 32’ (9.5m), secondary tender up to 24’ (7.3m), a number of small water craft or a submarine and smaller tenders. In addition to all of the flexibility of watercraft selection the deck can also accommodate a helicopter landing pad. When the water craft are all deployed the boat deck is transformed into a huge beach with easy water access plus there are fold down glass baloneys to port and starboard that all relax out over the water. In addition to the multi use main deck space there is an expansive flybridge dedicated to guest relaxation in all weather conditions. The Flybrige has a large dinning area and bar, there is a forward sun pad and seating all of which are positioned to take advantage of the stunning vistas available from this area.

to bring forth an un-interrupted view of exotic land and seascapes. The lower deck features four large guest cabins with extra large port lights to provide enhanced natural light and viewing. The AOY Ah OCEAn ROVER’S mission profile demands that she has exceptional crew accommodations to handle the extended passage and remote area operations. The OCEAn ROVER can be operated in traditional cruising areas with smaller crew. however she has been designed to accommodate all of the additional crew members that are necessary and often not considered during design when creating a world exploration vessel such as, dive instructors, fishing guides, pilots, nannies, instructors and others. The whole design team is dedicated to making all aspects of operation efficient and “GREEN” by incorporating proven technologies and cutting edge developments. The OCEAn ROVER will incorporate extensive solar cells and shaft generators with the new TESLA battery power supply system to reduce the generator sizes and enhance operation of the vessel in a wide variety of operating parameters.

capabilities delivered through the revolutionary technologies and innovations that underpin glider Yachts’ three ranges. The SS18 will be the most luxurious high performance sports boat in the world. Its unique hull form, propulsion and proprietary Stability Control System (SCS) actually tune to the sea conditions allowing passengers to “glide” over the waves in unprecedented comfort and style at speeds of up to 70mph. glider Yachts is excited to publically debut the British designed and built

SD18 at the Monaco Yacht Show in late September, but selected media will be invited to experience the new glider first hand at an invitation only media launch event in the South of England in the late summer, followed by a media preview event during the Cannes Boat Show in early September, just prior to the Monaco show.
