YACHT CREW

Captain: Michael Vaughan

Michael’s love for sailing started at a young age, when on vacation in Mexico his family charted a sailboat for a day. It was on this trip that Michael knew he had found his dream career.

Michael spent many years learning how to sail in Chicago, eventually becoming the Fleet Manager and Lead Instructor for the school that taught him so much. To this day, his passion for teaching others how to sail shows whenever he meets someone eager to learn. Many of his students have gone on to a career in sailing, including several currently working on their own circumnavigations.

Along this path, Michael has found great joy in scuba diving and focused on becoming a leader both above and below the water. As a PADI Dive Master, Michael enjoys leading certified guests of all skill levels under the waves. While diving, guests will experience a world far different than the one they leave behind when they come on vacation.

Whether fishing, free diving, snorkeling or scuba diving, Michael is a natural leader and enjoys sharing these activities with his guests. His warm, welcoming personality will make you feel right at home while relaxing in paradise.

Chef: Brittany Kiley

Brittany became a professional yacht Chef through the marriage of her main passions in life: food, travel, and the great outdoors. She’s worked as a Private Chef for high profile clients and is comfortable cooking you a wide variety of cuisines.

Brittany’s love for being on the water was instilled in her from a young age where she spent her summers boating, waterskiing, and tubing on lakes in the Midwest. Thanks to the help of her handsome sailing instructor, she now holds a 25T Master USCG License with a Sailing Mate endorsement. This, coupled with her experience in the galley makes her a well rounded 1st Mate.

Brittany was blessed to be raised in a family full of good cooks, and has enjoyed cooking for friends and family from a young age. While pursuing a Bachelors degree in Environmental Sustainability, she immersed herself in the Farm-to-Table movement by working in both restaurants and on many of Chicago’s urban farms, growing specialty produce for top-tier restaurants in the Windy City. After graduation, she went on to complete an internship with one of Sonoma County’s oldest wineries, teaching her the basics of viticulture and igniting her interest in food and wine pairing.

Brittany loves bringing people together through food and looks forward to providing you with a unique culinary experience.

While working as a Day Charter Captain and Sailing Instructor in Chicago, Michael met Brittany as she was pursuing her goal of learning how to sail. The two of them soon realized their mutual dream of living and working on the water in the Caribbean, fell in love, and started planning to make their dream a reality.

Together they’ve sailed over 10,000 nautical miles in the Mediterranean, along the East Coast, Lake Michigan, and in the Caribbean. One of their favorite passages was sailing from Faro Portugal to Valletta Malta to deliver a sailing yacht for the Rolex Middle Sea Race. They have also worked on private super yachts, honing their hospitality skills and learning the finer points of yacht service and care.

The two of them take great pride in providing 5-star service while ensuring their guests have an unforgettable experience. When not sailing or entertaining, you’ll find Michael and Brittany scuba diving, practicing yoga, riding bikes, or enjoying a day at the beach.

YACHT TESTIMONIALS

We had a wonderful time on Tabula Rasa! Colin and Julianna were the perfect hosts. The boat was immaculate and larger than we expected, especially the common areas. They did a wonderful job of keeping everything orderly without making us feel like intruders. I can not emphasize enough how delightful and easy they were to be around. Julianna’s food was delicious! In particular, her key lime pie, ceviche with wonton chips, and the lobster dinner Colin had caught for us before our arrival! They make a great team on the boat and in the kitchen. We cannot thank you and them enough for making our vacation so relaxing and special!

We have been on several catamaran charters. This has been far the best. The food was beyond wonderful. Every meal was fantastic, service beyond great. I recommend this charter to everyone !!! The captain and cook were so delightful and helpful. Made the trip great.
-Patty F. 

Our cruise was in early March 2019 with four couples in their 50’s. Our captain and cook, Colin and Julianna, were a remarkable combination of professional, attentive and personable. We are experienced boaters and divers and thought Colin handled the boat exceptionally well and was a fine dive master. Julianna’s meal preparation was truly outstanding, on par with any high end restaurant. They both went out of their way to address our every request and make us feel at home on their boat.

Eight friends just spent the most amazing week aboard the Tabula Rasa with Captain Colin and Chef Julianna. Captain Colin planned out our itinerary to include the best snorkeling spots, the Baths where you climb through rock tunnels and crevices to the most spectacular views (not to be missed), to Willy T's (a floating bar also not to be missed), to the Soggy Dollar which is a breath-taking waterfront bar! Upon retuning from our day activities, Colin would present us with his drink of the day, my favorite being the PAINKILLER!!! We are so impressed with his skills as a Captain and as a bartender. Chef Julianna could without a doubt open her own 5 star restaurant as she served delicious delicacies out of a small gallery that were mouth-water and tantalizing. Every meal was prepared with fresh ingredients with Julianna's own "Twists"! Some of my favorites....biscuit, sausage and gravy on homemade rosemary and goat cheese biscuits, Eggs benedict, fish tacos, crab cakes and of course all the pasta dishes that has been perfected and reflect her 3rd generation Italian heritage! Both Colin and Julianna spent the entire week catering to us, entertaining us and making this the ultimate dream vacation! I would highly recommend that if you are considering cruising the BVI's or American VI's that this is the couple that will make it "a week you will never forget"! Thank you Colin & Julianna
