Captain Morné Botha & Chef /1st Mate Kayla Beecher are both from South African
Morne Botha and Kayla Olivia Beecher
“For us, it’s not just a job but a way of life. It is a chance to finally just shut your brain off and live within the moment. And for as long as we are able, we will sail until the day we die… “
We are a couple passionate about sailing and the ocean, nature, animals, people, love, compassion and living life to the fullest. We are driven to inspire growth that goes hand in hand with change, to bring people together, create life changing experiences and show humanity a side of life that has been forgotten by society. Sailing is the one thing where the love for all comes together and you get to experience the untouched hidden beauty of life.
We strive for professionalism but at the same time give a home like feeling wherever we sail. It is not always the place that you call home but the people.
Your Skipper: Morne Botha
Qualified RYA Offshore sailor and certified cruising instructor. Currently captain of a 60 ft sailing catamaran doing all inclusive luxury charters. Boat builder with Two Atlantic crossings, Navigating the whole South African coast as the beginning of my career and two skipper positions in Croatia as skipper and host.
I have a passion for sailing, surfing, diving, rock climbing, playing guitar, hiking and anything to do with adventure. I love meeting new people, cooking and building relationships while sharing my passion with them.
Your Hostess: Kayla Olivia Beecher
Qualified hostess and stewardess with a BA degree in health sciences and social services psychology. Currently Chef/ First Mate on a 60ft sailing catamaran, with experience in the restaurant industry, au pairing, admin, customer service and relationship building. With a love for the Ocean and a drive to inspire children and adults to reach their dreams and claim happiness.
Life on the water is vastly different to everyday life on land and I would love to let others experience this and break away from their fears and normal ways. I would love to help children sail who are underprivileged or terminally ill and thus grow to give back to others and enable them the experience the beauty of our world.
We would be honored to share our love and passion with the opportunity as skipper and hostess. We believe that our presence will not just aid to the success of the company but also be responsible for great guest/crew relationships and keep clients coming back for an unforgettable experience.

Something Wonderful is just That! 27 Jan 2020
We just returned from a 7 day charter in the BVI. We were a group of 4 couples and it was a first experience for all of us, so we really did not know what to except. We choose the Catamaran “Something Wonderful” … as we boarded we discovered the first problem! The name of this beauty should have been “Something Extraordinarily Wonderful!”
Then we met the Crew. We were welcomed with such grace and refinement by each of them. They instantly made us feel at home. Each one were truly professional and passionate about their careers, but more so they became a part of the family and we learned a great deal from their expertise’s. The captain was amazing. We knew how seriously he took his responsibility and we always felt safe and in good hands. He plotted a journey that all 8 of us embraced as our best vacation ever. He educated us about this beautiful BVI and each port was unique and special. The chef wowed us everyday with new, fresh and exquisite cuisine. She too provided us a culinary experience we will never forget.. all the while handling this task with ease and such character. The crew worked tirelessly – each sharing in the daily workings of the boat – and we could not help notice the level of discretion. The crew truly made our experience one we shall always cherish and hope to do again. All of that coupled with what we all thought was to be the most fabulous catamaran. The color scheme was gorgeous, perfectly design in function , amble space and of course we felt the fly bridge was perfect! Every inch of that boat was spectacular! We have all decided after this glorious trip… that when choosing the next charter … we felt it truly came down to The Crew! We would not want to set sail without this crew! We were blessed to have had both : A Something Wonderful Crew AND Boat! Thank you!”

We were welcomed with such grace and refinement by each of them. They instantly made us feel at home. Each one were truly professional and passionate about their careers, but more so they became a part of the family and we learned a great deal from their expertise’s. Captain Paul Johnson was a true Captain. We knew how seriously he took his responsibility and we always felt safe and in good hands. Paul plotted a journey that all 8 of us embraced as our best vacation ever. Paul would educate us about this beautiful BVI and each port was unique and special. Isabella wowed us everyday with new, fresh and exquisite cuisine. She too provided us a culinary experience we will never forget.. all the while handling this task with ease and such character. We did wonder before we boarded why we would even need a 3 crew member .. then we met Daniel. Daniel was equally as pertinent and provided the guest with impeccable service. All three crew members worked tirelessly – each sharing in the daily workings of the boat – and we could not help notice the level of discretion. Also it was an honor to see the level of respect they have for their Captain and rightly so. Paul was able to command his crew with great finesse. All three member truly made our experience one we shall always cherish and hope to do again. All of that coupled with what we all thought was to be the most fabulous catamaran.

Dear SOMETHING WONDERFUL crew,
What an amazing Christmas week and an honor to be your first guests! The memories we all made this week will last a lifetime.
Graeme, Lauren and Zayne all went above and beyond to ensure we were fully pampered and happy every minute. They were always ready to do anything from getting movie night set up, water sports with the kids, running us into beach bars, serving yummy drinks of the day (Z Island Rum Punch) and on and on . . . . They helped us make some extra special memories that we will cherish, while getting photos of the whole week so we can take them home.
Something Wonderful REALLY was just that and we cant wait to spend our next time with these wonderful people on this absolutely perfect boat!
