Crew

Captain and Crew of Magic Inspiration, a 46 ft Bahia Caribbean Yacht Charter

Crew Profile

Jeff and Sandy hail from Boston, MA (go Red Sox!), and have been sailing together for over 11 years. Their journeys have taken them along the East Coast of the U.S. and to many exotic destinations such as the Bahamas, Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Panama, St Lucia, Grenada, and the Grenadines.

Their thirst for adventure, love of the sea, and impeccable hospitality combine to bring their charter guests magical vacations with memories that will last a lifetime!

Captain Jeff’s ocean experience started at the early age of 12 while growing up in a small fishing town on the North Shore of Boston. He was scuba diving by the age of 14 and taking extra courses in Biology and working at the Woods Hole branch in Salem MA while in high school. He went on to double major in Biology & Chemistry at the University of Miami with the direction of working in the marine field. On this path he became involved in the marine equipment industry and boat building. After thirty years in the yacht industry, with over 40,000 miles sailed, he decided to move to the Caribbean and share his love of the sea firsthand through chartering.

He enjoys sharing his knowledge of sailing and diving, and has fun creating his famous “Captain’s Cocktails” for all to enjoy. With his guided tours and underwater photography you will get to experience more of the amazing reefs in BVI than you ever imagined.

Captain Jeff currently holds a commercially endorsed MCA 200 Ton Offshore (Unlimited Passenger) RYA Yacht Master license with all the required SMTC 95 safety training certificates. You will be glad to know that your Captain’s offshore expereince included many solo adventures, so no worries – you can choose to participate as much or as little as you’d like during your voyage, confident in your safety with his seamanship.

Your Hostess/Chef, Sandy has 25 years experience hosting events and catering to discriminating executive-level clients. Through extensive worldwide travel, she has acquired and replicated many unique cuisine creations. She enjoys experimenting with locally sourced produce, and her menu ranges from the heart-healthy to the over-indulgent – your choice! Sandy has also recently been published in the new charter chef cookbook, “Dining on Deck”!

In addition to providing culinary treats, she also offers yoga on board or on the many beaches we’ll explore during the voyage. She also has her acoustic guitar onboard with a repertoire of over 100 beach party songs for impromptu sing-alongs.

Your First Mate, Mango, is always on patrol watching for the next beautiful bird, fish, turtle or dolphin that will surely cross our path!

Jeff and Sandy are active patrons of the Boston’s Children’s Hospital and in 2012 their personal efforts raised in excess of $120,000 for research for pediatric heart valve replacement.

MAGIC INSPIRATION GUESTS COMMENTS
APRIL 2012 – FUNKE FAMILY
Dear Sandy, Jeff and Mango

THANKS SO MUCH for a fun-filled, adventurous week! We all learned a lot about a different part of the world…..both underwater and on our many hikes on the islands. We really liked the choice of snorkeling stops (seeing the shark and swimming with turtles were simply incredible!). The kids also LOVED the tubing!!

Read More

Sandy, the food was DELICIOUS! Thank you for an absolutely impressive variety of dishes. We still can’t decide on our favorite dessert.

This was a trip we will always remember!

Norberg, Ilka, Christoph and Cara

APRIL 2012 – Wolsford Family
Dear Sandy, Jeff & Mango

Best family trip EVER! Your personal tour of all the perfect spots for families combined with your warm friendly attitudes, beautiful boat, superb cuisine, WOW! We tried to think of the “best” part, but every experience was the “best”. Sailing, hiking, snorkeling,(1st scuba for the kids!), swimming, tubing….thank you ever so much!!!

All our best with gratitude, Rennie, Willa, Camilla and Fiona

February 2012 Principe Family
Thank you for a great week of sailing, and the best part, getting the kids into diving 🙂 Thank you for all the sailing tips and of course the fantastic meals. BEST FAMILY VACATION!! Take care and sail on, Michael, Marissa, Alex and Sabrina

MAY 2012 – JONES PARTY
Sandy and Jeff,

Magic and Inspiration truly happen here….Thanks for an incredible journey! We came onboard over-worked, over-tired, and over-stressed and are leaving relaxed, refreshed, and regretful for having to leave this paradise you provide. We have laughed much and loved every single moment.

Sandy, your truly gourmet meals have inspired us all. These are the meals one might expect from a 5 star resort – only better!

Jeff, you are a saint! Your patience with a boat full of women and returning to us all the items we lost overboard was amazing. We also found great comfort in your knowledge and expertise behind the helm as our captain.

Thank you both for the MAGIC! This was absolutely one of the most memorable and enjoyable weeks ever! You are both awesome in every way!

Holly, Ann and Terri

Words Fail Us!!
Dear Jeff and Sandy

Words fail us – You Guys have been the best!! Period.
Big thanks for everything the (un)sailing (ha ha!) the snorkeling, the “beaching”, the great meals, the beautiful boat, and mostly for the privilege of getting to know you both.

We’ll be talking of our time on the M.I. with you for a good long time. All the best and good sailing until we meet again.

Tom and Marshall
So nice to get away from it all!
What a fantastic trip!! You thought of everything to make our anniversary vacation memorable – fresh flowers, excellent food, and the best selection of wines we’ve seen anywhere. The activity level was just right, and your knowledge of the “secluded” beaches for us was much appreciated – so nice to get away from it all! This trip will stand out as the anniversary to beat for years to come.

The Hillebrands
Will miss being pampered!
You guys ROCK – this was a first class vacation all the way! The sailing and snorkeling just couldn’t be beat, and your taking time with our kids to show them around the reefs during their first real snorkeling experience was just super. We were all spoiled with your homemade breads and desserts, and will miss being pampered the minute we leave. Thank you for memories we will treasure for a lifetime!

The DeMarcos
It truly was a magical time
Sandy & Jeff,
It truly was a magical time for our family! The snorkeling, sailing, island visits – all just perfect.
And Sandy, the food was unbelievable! My poor family now must return to my cooking! You’ve definitely spoiled them. Please send recipes!
A special thanks for all the sailing time. Pressley couldn’t have been happier. We love your boat! Thanks for sharing it with us as well as your wonderful hospitality.

Safe travels,
Linda & Pressley

What a memorable, wonderful week!
Dear Sandy & Jeff,
What an amazing week! Thank you so much for making our week aboard your beautiful boat so very memorable. You are wonderful hosts and tended to everything – from making sure we got a great mooring at all of the best stops, to great Dark & Stormy’s (and other fun cocktails), to amazing meals accommodating all of our family!
Sandy, you are a fabulous cook – your attention to all of the details is amazing, and Jeff, wonderful sailing, snorkeling, stories and more!
It was a pure pleasure spending the week with you – what a memorable, wonderful week! Thank you!!
The Budoricks – Sue, Tim, Lauren, Kate and Abby

A bucket list CHECK!
Dear Jeff and Sandy,
Thanks so much for a wonderful “birthday vacation” for all of us. It was truly a magical experience! The places you chose for moorings were all special in their own way, but all absolutely beautiful! Thanks so much for all your work and effort to take care of all of us. The food, the sailing, everything was just great. Our friends had a great first sailing experience. Thanks again for everything! Betty and Dave

Jeff and Sandy,
Ray and I want to thank you for such a wonderful adventure. You guys are the best and know how to perform first class. You made us feel so welcome and part of your family. This was a trip of a “lifetime” and will always remember this beautiful journey through paradise. Please remember us, and keep in touch! Thank you again, Roy and Kathy

Dear Sandy, Jeff and Mango,
A bucket list CHECK! What a wonderful experience – thanks soooo much for everything! The food, the sailing, and the stories we shared will never be forgotten. South Padre Island will hear our conch blast everyday at sunset, for sure! We hope you will come visit and check it out someday. Take care and safe sailing, Paul and Pat
