Andell was born and raised in Grenada. Growing up in a fishing town he was exposed to boats and the ocean from a very young age. As a young child he accompanied the boats with the task of diving down to un-snag fishing nets, solidifying his comfort with the ocean and his reputation for “having salt in his bones”.
It is said that every picture he drew as a very young child included a sailboat with a stick figure and his name alongside it – clearly destined to be a boat captain.
As a young adult, through dogged persistence, he was afforded the opportunity to sail spending hours of his own time mastering his skills at the helm to be one of the best, and continued to master the skills required to be a great captain.
Once acquiring his RYA 200T offshore captains license in 1990, his experience has included roles as Dock Master, Crewed Charter captain, Bareboat Charter captain, Private yacht captain, Delivery captain on all ranges of vessels including both monohulls and catamarans with guest capacity anywhere from 2 to 12 guests. His knowledge of the islands is extensive from Venezuela all the way to the BVI.
Andell is a gregarious and an engaging individual. He is a kind and generous host who respectfully engages with his guests with a relaxed and calm demeanor. It is a pleasure to be in his company.
He enjoys collaborating with his charter guests creating a customized charter itinerary as per their wish list and is great with children too.
