Catamaran Making Memories : Captain SKeith Allen & Chef/First Mate Ellie Archer
Keith has always had an adventurous spirit, inherited from an extremely nomadic family, mostly spread between Kenya, the U.K., U.S.A. and of course Australia, where he grew up. He has been fortunate enough to have been raised as a well travelled youth which enabled him to grow into someone who can build rapport and friendships with people from many different walks of life and cultures. A trait invaluable when considering the multicultural and close-knit conditions living and working aboard a yacht.
Keith has sailed around most of the windward isles, from St Maarten to Grenada; the Dutch Caribbean, Panama, the Andalusian coast of Spain, Portugal, Morocco and the Greek Islands in the Saronic Gulf of the Mediterranean. He has also spent time working on a superyacht that sailed up the east coast of the United States from Fort Lauderdale to Rhode Island but realized his heart and true passion was in sailing and smaller boats. Keith’s favorite part about skippering on yachts is hunting for unique bays and the little hidden gems on the islands; from the best beach bars to reef full of life that can only be reached by boat.
Ellie grew up in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, where her love for cooking (especially that of sweet treats!) began with the afternoon “lessons” she’d have with her neighbor and mother. Over the years she continued that passion, preparing meals for her family and friends. As she grew older, she hosted dinner and drinks gatherings at her home, where her love for hosting and event planning really took off. Ellie has worked in the customer service industry from a young age, and loves the fast-paced and energetic nature of this profession. She has also grown up in the outdoors, having been a member of the Australian Scout Movement for over a decade, which expanded her passion for sports such as sailing, skiing and rock climbing.
Ellie is now on her second season of charter, having completed a season in the beautiful Greek Saronic Islands. She loved the warmth and unrivaled hospitality that only local island people can provide, and cannot wait to continue experiencing this in the Caribbean.
On charter, Ellie loves nothing more than to see clients genuinely enjoying themselves under her care, and understands that it’s the small details that really make a trip memorable. With her and Keith’s enthusiasm and knowledge, they know that after a week with them, guests will leave having just experienced one of the best weeks of their lives.

Guest Testimonials Catamaran Making Memories
Thankyou for an unbelievable trip from Cooper’s Island
Keith and Kenzi. Thankyou for an unbelievable trip from Cooper’s Island and Willie T’s to catching fresh lobster, we had an amazing time. We are leaving with unforgettable memories we are so lucky to have. Some of which Cole and Carter probably don’t remember. Keith, we are lucky to have had the opportunity to go sailing with you and Kenzi, you crushed it all week with killer or delicious dishes as Cole would say. You accommodated our last second dietary changes because our Dad decided to have some fun with fire and we had to replace him with Kayle. The night at Willie T’s is one we will never forget, just like Cole and Carter’s dance moves. Even frat star Reed will miss you guys. All jokes aside, thank you for an incredible week and I’m sure we will be attempting to convince our Dad for a round 2 trip. – Blake
Thank you to Keith and Kenz for an incredible trip. We are all grateful for you making our time on Makin Memories filled with fun! – Reed
Keith and Kenz thank you so much for the amazing trip. Kenz, thank you for accommodating my glutendairy restrictions and making me feel like a part of the group at meal times. We appreciate everything you both have done for us! Cheers! – Kayle
Wendy I think got a bit held up trying to make sure everyone was packed and ready to go so we didn’t get an entry in the guestbook from her but would love to hear any feedback she might have so please pass this on if you get any. She was very grateful though and verbalised what a great time she had.
I’ll try to set up another drop box for photo sharing when I have a moment! Thanks again.
