YACHT CREW

Captain: Shawn Hardesty

Shawn’s love for the ocean began when he was only a few months old on the coast of North Carolina. Shawn grew up in Carolina Beach, NC where he learned to read the wind and waves and developed a passion to share his love of the ocean with others.

Shawn graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2011 with a degree in Marine Biology. Shortly after college, Shawn moved to Nicaragua to pursue his love of the ocean and worked as a Captain and surf guide for NicaSurf tours.

Following a couple great years in Central America, Shawn moved back to the states to continue his life on the water. In doing so, Shawn has spent the past 5 years working aboard world class super yachts. In which time, he has obtained his USCG Captains License as well as his American Sailing Association Certification.

Shawn and Autumn met in September of 2013 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where they were both searching for their first superyacht jobs. A week later, they found separate jobs on different boats, starting three years of long distance dating. In December of 2016, they decided it was time for an adventure and decided to travel New Zealand for a year together in a campervan they renovated themselves.

Chef & Mate: Autumn Hardesty

Autumn was born in Michigan where she grew up swimming in the freshwater of the Great Lakes. After high school she studied massage therapy and yoga in Costa Rica where she fell in love with the salty ocean and travelling to new places. In 2013, Autumn moved to Florida to become a yacht stewardess. A job that would take her to many exotic places, even all the way back to lake Michigan.

For the last five years, Autumn has worked on multiple world class yachts in which she collaborated closely with five-star chefs from around the world. Learning from her yacht chef coworkers, she has developed a passion for creating exciting and healthy dishes that create memories.

Shawn and Autumn love to spend time on the water, whether it’s diving, snorkeling, surfing, paddling or sailing. They are excited to bring their captain and crew knowledge of charter yachts to give you a sailing vacation you won’t forget.

YACHT TESTIMONIALS

November, 2017, guests aboard KELEA said:

We have been coming to the BVI and French West Indies since the late 90's.  At last count we just completed our 9th trip, most recently on the 'Kelea' in the BVI's.  
 
Our first trip was on an old Cat named the Last Fancy with a husband and wife that were owners/operators.  We had the time of our life and we never realized that we did not know what we did not know - that is to say there were some mighty beautiful boats out there. We soon realized that we had to come back and charter a newer/bigger boat with more amenities. We did this numerous times and it seems that each boat was nicer and each crew was better than the last.
 
Our experience on Kelea was no different - from a mighty 65 footer that can cruise at 9+ knots to the beautiful salon of blonde woods and the largest galley I have ever seen.  Because she can provision and hold so much we never had to stop and we wanted for absolutely nothing the entire week!  And this was 8 passengers and 2 crew!
 
This leads me to the crew - Dan and Alli Shivone...  As I mentioned we have had the privilege to have chartered some of the finest Cat's in the Caribbean and thus experienced some of the best crews.  I can categorically state without any hesitation that Dan and Alli were the best!  It seemed that all of our personalities meshed perfectly from Alli's bubbly and energetic persona to Dan's down to business yet dry and quick wit.  All this lent itself to not only a wonderful trip from their technical abilities but also their personal qualities that led to great discussions, fun games, superb dives and lots and lots of laughs! 

My wife and I highly recommend this boat but more importantly - this crew - for your dream vacation and the time of your life!
