Desmond Greyling – Captain
Education/Certifications: City and Guilds Electronic Origination Degree in Graphic Design, PADI Master Scuba diver trainer, MCA – IYT Master of Yachts 200T Oceans
Languages Spoken: English, Afrikaans

Desmond Greyling was born and raised in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, the country’s headquarters for shipping located on the South Coast. His father was a shipping and ports enthusiast, and on the weekends, Desmond would accompany him to the harbors to watch the commercial vessels load and offload their cargo. This is where his love for boats and the sea began. His family moved away from the coast to Johannesburg as he started high school, and his mom bribed him to get higher grades in his graduating year by sending him to a scuba diving class. After a career in graphic design and advertising, he left the world of offices, cubicles and traffic for a more relaxed life in Southern Thailand. He sailed lasers and mirrors as a kid on lakes growing up, but only started boating after leaving his career in graphic design in 2002. He was drawn to the yachting industry by the opportunity to travel and meet interesting people, and has worked on private yachts, charter vessels, dive liveaboards and sailing catamarans since 2004. His two favorite destinations are the Chamonix Vineyard and Resort in South Africa, and the Exumas in the Bahamas. In his spare time, you’ll find Damon free diving and scuba diving.

Meghen McCombe - Stew
Education: Single and Multi-Engine (Land and Sea with Instrument) Pilot’s License
Languages Spoken: English, Spanish

Meghen McCombe was born in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada to a Bahamian mother and Canadian father. Her family moved to the Bahamas when she was a toddler. Bouncing between Nassau, the Exumas and Eleuthera, she grew up sailing, free diving, scuba diving, conching, spear fishing and horseback riding. She was primarily raised in her family’s home on Norman’s Cay where her grandfather helped develop the infrastructure of the island. Megs has worked in the hospitality industry for as long as she can remember, which includes a day spa and salon, and a management role at a boutique hotel and restaurant in Exuma. In her twenties, she went to flight school in Florida. She has been boating since she was a toddler, and began her career in the yachting industry in 2008. Since then, she has worked on private and charter yachts, power boats, and America’s Cup sailboats. Megs is happiest when she’s near the ocean, and her favorite place in the world is Whales Tail on Norman’s Cay in the Exumas.

Education/Certifications: MCA – Master of Yachts 200 Ton Offshore; PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer; Film Production Diploma, Vancouver Film School.
Languages Spoken: English, some Mandarin

Chris Penner hails from Kelowna, British Columbia. His passion for scuba diving began in May 2004 when he spotted a shark while snorkeling in Hawaii. It was in that moment that he knew that working in the diving and boating industries would lead to a lifetime of “Wow!” moments. By December 2004, he was a certified PADI instructor and started his first job on a liveaboard dive vessel in the Bahamas. He has worked on motor yachts and sailing vessels since 2005, including private and charter yachts, dive liveaboards, and sailing catamarans in Turks & Caicos, Ft Lauderdale, Cayman Brac and the Bahamas. Chris has also worked in the film and TV industry, including a teaching role at Vancouver Film School’s Shanghai campus, and an Assistant Director position on the TV series, Supernatural.

In his leisure time, Chris enjoys photography and videography, snowboarding, kiteboarding, hiking and cooking. He is happiest when he’s on or in the ocean, and thinks the waters surrounding the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos are the most beautiful places in the world.

I had the pleasure of traveling aboard M/Y Quintessa with Mehgan, Des, Chris and Elizabeth from Jan 6th through Jan 13th. I have to tell you what an asset it was to spend the week with this crew and have them take such amazing care of us. Their superb hospitality, pleasantly personalities, teamwork, and attention to detail made our vacation so special. Each one of these crew members deserve special recognition for making the trip our best vacation ever. From the moment were were greeted to our last breakfast we truly felt welcome and relaxed. All our expectations and needs were beyond exceptionally met the entire week. Mehgan made us feel right at home as if we were family. She is truly special and takes great pride in herself and her work. She was always there with her amazing smile and sweet personality to plan each and every day. We all didn't want to leave Megs. We could cruise around the world and back with Megs. Des extreme competence, professionalism and knowledge of the yacht and waters made us feel safe and allowed us to get a great education on the water. His teamwork with the rest of the crew while we were docked was over the top. He was always there with a helping hand for everyone whenever he could be. Chris was so much fun and always eager for adventure as he took us fishing, snorkeling, island hopping always spoiling us and of course made us feel safe on days we indeed had rough seas. The video he showed us at the end of our trip that he had made throughout the week for us was sweet and a lifetime keepsake. It was truly a special treat he gave to us at the end of this vacation. And Elizabeth, oh my. She is a treasure and such a talented chef! She was so accommodating of all our favorites and limitations. We all walked away with a few a her delicious recipes and inspiration from her creative meals. She's the best! All our 8 passengers are still talking about our amazing journey with this crew. Myself and anyone of us would give each of these crew members a raving referral or recommendation to anyone who asks. We will definitely be back to cruise on M/Y Quintessa with this crew soon. Thank you for this epic lifetime experience for all of us.
