The Crew

Captain/Chef – Larry Tyler

Meet LARRY TYLER, the warm and welcoming captain and chef of THE DOVE. Born with a unique blend of Anglo and Italian heritage, he is fluent in Italian and French. Larry’s journey began with a four-year study of Hotel Management, followed by culinary training at the prestigious Dorchester Hotel in London. However, his adventurous spirit led him to establish his own highly successful international fashion house.

Inspired by the film “Dove,” Larry embarked on an incredible expedition across the South China Seas and the Indian Ocean on his 35′ sailing boat, relying solely on a sextant and chronometer for navigation. Along the way, he engaged in native jewelry trading, braving six crossings of the Indian Ocean while skillfully evading the notorious pirates of the Malacca Straits and the Sulu Sea. Although he encountered numerous typhoons, Larry’s passion for sailing remained unwavering. During those voyages, he found time to design the boat of his dreams, and thus, THE DOVE came into being.

Larry’s sailing adventures have taken him from the South China Sea to Thailand, across the Indian Ocean to the Cape of Good Hope, then to Brazil, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Greenland above the Arctic Circle, Patagonia, Cape Horn, and even Antarctica—twice! Beyond sailing, Larry is an accomplished underwater photographer and filmmaker, contributing to renowned organizations like National Geographic and NHK Japanese TV in producing captivating documentaries. Additionally, he cherishes windsurfing, snow skiing, and preparing delectable Mediterranean and Oriental cuisine.

As your gracious host aboard THE DOVE, Larry takes immense pleasure in sharing his profound knowledge of the cruising areas you choose, ensuring that you have an unforgettable vacation.
