MY DB9 Superyacht Stories

The Captain

Describing himself as “Argentinian by birth, Italian by blood and Swedish by choice”, Captain Flavio Pescuma has always had a love of travelling the globe, and spent his childhood years sailing, skiing, riding, flying, and playing rugby and polo.

His overwhelming passion for the water saw him launch his own small yacht charter business in 2008, and since then he has dedicated his life to providing guests and owners alike unforgettable experiences on board.

A keen sports enthusiast, his outgoing, friendly nature and utterly professional attitude mean he is perfectly placed to provide guests young and mature with a fantastically memorable trip.

The Experience

DB9’s low-slung sporty appearance, elegant modern lines, champagne exterior and discreetly luxe finish make her the obvious choice for discerning, style-obsessed guests for whom surroundings are as important as far as the eye can see vistas.

Her five spacious and welcoming staterooms have been imagined as spacious and welcoming personal sanctuaries. Accessed by a private staircase, the impressive master suite is finished in calming cream hues and natural light wood panelling and offers walk-in wardrobes and an oversized en suite bathroom. The remaining four staterooms are set around a central foyer on the lower deck and all enjoy private en suite facilities.

The recent Nuvolari Lenard refit perfectly complements her distinctly futuristic character; a full beam salon on the main deck boasts a chic lounge area and dedicated dining zone with seating for 10, dominated by a stunning deco-inspired light feature.

However, it’s DB9’s highly styled exterior decks which offer a sophisticated yet intimate area in which to get the most out of your stay on board. The aft deck features direct access to the ocean and an impressive array of toys while an infinity edged jacuzzi, eight metre pool and al fresco lounge and dining zone served by a full wet bar will provide endless hours of joy.

The Cuisine

A true Parisian and exceptional chef, Ketty Zeitoun has an unrivalled talent for creating memorable and mouth-watering menus which incorporate her flair for an exotic array of international cuisines.

Having trained at Le Notre school in Paris as well as completing her thesis in Bangkok, Chef Zeitoun rose through the ranks to become Chef de Partie at the two Michelin star Les Elysees in the French capital. When adventure came calling in 2006, she moved to Venezuela where she started her own company catering for large events and weddings for up to 800 guests.

Joining the superyacht world in 2020, Ketty’s innovative recipes are showcased in her menu planning, where one can travel through the world’s most varied culinary regions in one day. Start the day with French toast, bacon, cinnamon sugar and grilled banana before tucking into a lunch of lightly seared black sesame[1]crusted tuna loin, pickled ginger and wasabi.

Dinner will transport you to la dolce vita via Ketty’s risotto Milanese with saffron, white truffles and parmesan shavings before a coup de foudre as you savour her take on a French classic, blueberry and vanilla pod crème brûlée.
