Crew Profile:

C A P T A I N - Ben Foglesong

Captain Ben was always fascinated by the sea, he started scuba diving and sailing regularly while studying marine biology at UVA. He later moved to Florida to be closer to the water and earn his master’s degree from the University of Miami. During Ben's time in Florida, he taught scuba diving, ran boats and upgraded his USCG Master captains credential to 500GT. Ben is also an American Sailing Association sailing instructor and enjoys sharing the intricacies of sailing this amazing vessel with interested guests. He is very serious about the safety of his guests and yacht but this certainly does not impede his ability to have fun onboard.

Onboard Excess, Ben enjoys sharing a wide variety of water activities with his guests including diving board, underwater scooters, wakeboarding, tubing, and many more. He is a highly credentialed PADI SCUBA and Freediving instructor who is also classically trained in marine biology. Ben is a veteran with a background in fitness training who will gladly take you on a rewarding hike to some of the best views atop the islands or can put together and accompany you in a morning workout on board, upon request. Ben also loves crafting your favorite cocktails and taking that perfect vacation photo for your group with his drone.

C H E F - Michelle Hannemann

Michelle is known for her kind nature and positive outlook, “in optimism there is magic” she often says.
Born on the Central East Coast of Florida, Michelle grew up with saltwater coursing through her veins. She spent the weekends cruising the waters of the intercoastal with her family who taught her all about boating, sea life and fishing. Although boating was the highlight of every week, she never imagined it one day becoming a part of her career.

Cooking also became a passion for Michelle at a young age. She spent every Christmas break in Pennsylvania with her Italian grandmother and great grandmother. This time spent was invaluable as she learned all about the foundation of her families’ secret recipes. “Even now when I visit we still spend 80% of the time in the kitchen (the other 20% eating)”, Michelle says. She continues, “It’s so great that I can now give my grandmother a rest; cooking for her and proving that I was paying close attention all these years.”
Michelle loves to cook with fresh herbs, vegetables and lean proteins. Her favorite challenge is turning something some consider boring into something magnificent! She loves experimenting with combinations of French and Asian flavors that send the taste buds spinning. Guests aboard Excess are in for a tasty experience that will be remembered long after their charter.

When not in the galley you can find Michelle leading snorkel excursions, planning memorable events for any occasion or shaking up delicious cocktails. Basically, anything to make chartering on Excess the vacation of a lifetime.

How would you qualify skipper:
Captain Ben was awesome. He was friendly and accommodating, and by the end of day 1 he felt like one of our group. He anticipated our needs and brought us places we all loved. Can’t say enough good things about him. He was also so professional and kept us feeling safe all week!

Michelle was AMAZING. Her food, her drinks, her demeanor and willingness to accommodate was five star plus!!!!

Crew:
Ben & Michelle Foglesong 

How would you qualify skipper:
Ben & Michelle MADE this trip. Their #1 priority is your safety. Their #2 priority is to ensure you have the time of your life. After a few hours in to the trip, they felt more like friends rather than "captain & crew".

How would you qualify rest of the crew:
Michelle is SO sweet and accommodating. She also happens to be a rockstar chef.

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc):
The yacht was perfect. The photos and video do not do it justice. It is HUGE and meticulously well kept. It looks and feels brand new. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room. There are so many different areas to hang out/relax. Often times, my husband and I felt like we were the only 2 on the boat! The cabins are quite spacious and the beds are ridiculously comfortable. I could not imagine choosing another yacht for future trips.


How would you qualify the itinerary:
It was perfect. Ben did an excellent job of communicating the daily plans and was open to adjustments based off of our needs/wants for the day.

How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/equipment on board:
Ben gave us just about every option under the sun. He is very knowledgeable of the area - knows the perfect spots for diving, snorkeling, etc. Ben was always up for an adventure or willing to take us to the next beach bar!

How would you qualify the food and drinks:
AMAZING food & drinks!! It's very clear that Michelle is extremely talented. We are foodies and she over-delivered on every dish. Cocktails were heavenly, so fresh. I wish I could bring her home with me.

How would you qualify the entire experience of your trip:
We travel quite often and this was hands down our best trip EVER. It almost felt like a dream. The yacht is beautiful, the food/drinks are outstanding, the destinations are breath-taking, and Ben & Michelle are AMAZING. We will definitely return to EXCESS in the future.
