Languages Spoken: English
Captain James D. Hume II was born in Ft Lauderdale, Florida and his family moved to Seminole when he was two. Water sports and boating were family pastimes, especially diving, fishing and sailing, and his father was a captain from 1972 - 2011. He learned how to sail as a child at the St. Pete Yacht Club Sailing School, staring with prams and ending with racing laters, 420s and Hobie cats.
He has been a captain since 2005 and has made his way up to commandeering vessels 100-ft or larger. Captain J.D. brings his expertise in operating yachts, supervising ship crew, loading and unloading charter guests, ensuring the safety of passengers, exceptional leadership abilities, and knowledge of Floridian and Bahamian waters to M/Y HIGH RISE.
His career goal, along with his wife and Chief Stew, Angie, is to work toward 130 to 150-foot motor yachts. Captain J.D. is an advanced fisherman, and in a recent trip, he boated over 15 marlin. 105 mahi and 25 tuna while in Cat Island, Florida. While he loves the Bahamas, he looks forward to traveling further south in the future.
Angela Marie Hagen - Chef
Education/Certifications: Associate of Applied Science in Culinary Arts, Wiregrass Georgia Technical College
Languages Spoken: English
Angela was born in Tallahassee, Florida, and moved around the state before her family settled in Ray City, Georgia when she was thirteen. Following her high school graduation, she worked on her family farm for four years before deciding to pursue her true love -- cooking. She enrolled in college to pursue a degree in Culinary Arts, and during her studies, she worked as a private chef at a hunting lodge, and joined them full time after completing her studies. In 2018, she travelled to the Bahamas as chef aboard a private yacht, and in March of 2019, she joined HIGH RISE as chef. Angie loves swimming and being near the ocean, but you’ll also find her painting, drawing, sewing, and basket weaving in her spare time. She also enjoys playing baseball and is part of a league for people with special needs.
Angela M. Hume - Stew
Languages Spoken: English
Angela Hume was born in Akron, Ohio but grew up on the beaches of West Florida between Clearwater and St. Petersburg. She has always loved the ocean and spent as much time at the beach as she could. Upon graduating high school at the age of 17, she joined the US Air Force. She travelled the world, lived in three different countries, and was deployed to dozens more. After 19 years of service, she requested early retirement and returned home to Florida. She grew up salt and freshwater fishing with her dad, and it’s what she would do when she’d visit during her time with the Air Force. This long-held passion brought her work for a company that specialized in deep sea fishing, dolphin watching and sunset cruising, allowing her to spend more time at sea. This is also where she met her husband, JD, the captain. Angie started her career in yachting earlier this year when she and her husband were asked to team up on the crew of M/Y HIGH RISE. Water and sand keeps her grounded and at peace; some of her favorite places to visit include the Maldives, Belize, St. Maarten, the Bahamas, Mallorca and Turkey … but she always returns home to Indian Rocks Beach.

This Yacht offers a “Plus Expenses” Rate:
Included are the Yacht and its onboard equipment as well as the Captain, Chef and Crew’s services.
Excluded are food and beverages, fuel for the yacht and its tender, any dockage, airport transfers costs, onshore excursions and tours, as well as any cruising permits, licenses and other charter related expenses. Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
