Guests to the second edition of the Sunset Soiree & Yacht Chef Competition were treated to taste sensations from four yacht industry chefs on Friday evening during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Chef Danny Davies of M/Y Excellence, a 150-foot Richmond, was honored as Best Yacht Chef in the boat show. He and Sous Chef Ratu Dawai created a winning dessert. Private yacht chef Alex Forsythe, freelance yacht chef Jarle Saupstad, and longtime yacht chef Andrew Siebert who was assisted by Haley Bradley, each created hundreds of favorite dishes for the guests to sample.

Hosted by local NBC-6 Miami reporter Kelly Blanco and the Miami Heat’s DJ Dale, the event filled the new SuperYacht Village at Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina and spilled over the the docks and the dancing area by the stage where The Wheeland Brothers band and a DJ performed. 

Held in partnership with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina and the Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss), the event raised donations for two Bahamian relief organizations, including Mission of Hope and ONE Bahamas.
