Capt. Shachar "Shack" Ben-David
Born into a seafaring family, Captain Shachar “Shack" Ben-David spent his youth in Israel and England sailing small boats and listening to the tales of the sea from his grandfather and great uncle. Upon moving to the United States he enlisted in the Coast Guard where he would serve as navigator and deck officer aboard a wide range of vessels for over twenty years.
Shack first came to the Virgin Islands in the late 1990s and would see multiple tours in both the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico where he developed a love for the beautiful Caribbean waters throughout his Coast Guard career. His time aboard ship would also find him sailing around the world from the far reaches of the Bering Sea to the shores of Australia and Asia and many points in between.
After retiring he spent some years working aboard Cruise ships, before once again settling in St. Thomas where he began captaining charters around the U.S. and British Virgin islands. As an experienced mariner, he is able to offer a huge breadth of experience to both passengers and crew. Bringing his love of the ocean, and extensive local knowledge, Shack is able to curate unique and memorable voyages that are sure to give every guest the experience of a lifetime.

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.
