Originally from South Africa but currently residing in New York, Kyle Viljoen is the life of any party. Now living in the US, he has dominated on the East Coast with experience on both private and charter vessels and sailing boats. Leaving no stone unturned, he always prides himself on breaking stereotypical barriers and carrying a voice that can be heard from a mile away. When he was thrown into the deep end and forced to assume the Chief Stew role on a 42-meter yacht as his first position in the yachting industry, he surpassed expectations with flying colors. Since then, he has worked on a handful of yachts as a Chief Stew. Bringing a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry, Viljoen has no problem confronting anyone if he is challenged. A hardworking stew with an affinity for fun, drama and luxury, he’s ready to spice up the charter season and deal with demanding charter guests and at times, challenging crew members.
