Capt. Micha Moeller

Micha was born 1971 at the North Sea coast of Germany. His love for the sea began at a young age and he learned to sail in one of the most difficult and dangerous sailing areas in the world. He crossed the North Atlantic Ocean single-handed and non-stop in both directions (Southern Atlantic Route & Northern Atlantic Route), sailed around the world twice and won various regattas. In 2019, the sailing magazine "Multihull World" dedicated an 8-page report of him after he lost his boat "Samsara 1" in Hurricane "Barry" and survived 4 days in the open sea floating on a raft which he made of fenders. After his rescue by the Containership BBC Orinocco, he immediately bought a new sailing catamaran and continued his circumnavigation.

Micha is a licensed airline pilot and flew for SWISS Int' Airline and AirBerlin for many years, but his true passion is the sea and his endless knowledge about sailing and the sea is unmatched. He is well known in the sailing community as a great sailor, a heavy weather specialist and very popular for his willingness to share his knowledge with others.

Even experienced sailors enjoy trips with Micha as captain and book him to expand their own skills.

Micha is known for his dry sense of humor and loves to introduce his guests to boat life and the adventure of the sea.

Chef Charly Podesta

Charly was born in Milano, Italy and came at the age of 2 to Florida in the United States. He grew up in his parent's food brokerage company and learned the intricacies of first-class foods at an early age. After attending the Northwood University of Texas where he studied hospitality management and culinary art, he started his own catering business where he served the concert and film industry and cooked for many well-known stars. A few years later he accepted the offer of the famous designer Gianni Versace and became his personal chef and US house manager. He has also worked personally for stars such as Cher, Luciano Pavarotti, Madonna and many others. Cher calls him "The King of Bolognese" and Anna Wintour (known for her aloof and demanding personality) calls him "Brilliant". The "Ocean Drive Magazine" honored Charly in an article and called him "The Man who made Miami" and "The Sun Sentinel" named him "The Chef of the month".

Born in Italy his cooking style is Italian influenced, but his main talent is to create unbelievable delicious meals from easy ingredients and his love that he puts in every dish he creates.

Charly has a very open and lovable personality and loves sharing his stories and experiences with his guests. He loves to pamper his guests and show them the adventure and peace of boat life.

Why the boat name ?

Samsara comes from Buddhism and means both "constant wandering" and rebirth.

Micha chose this name for his first catamaran because it best describes what Micha's future life should look like and how he felt after he left "normal" life. After Micha & Charly decided to sail the world together, they quickly agreed that the new boat should be called “Samsara" too.
