CAPTAIN Rich Jone
Capt Rich is a native Floridian who has been cruising and fishing the waters of South Florida and the Bahamas as far back as he can remember. Having always had a strong calling for the water, Rich joined the US Navy at the age of 18 and spent the next 6 years serving his country while experiencing ports-of-calls all over the world.
After the Navy, Rich thought his career might take a different path as he started work in the telecommunications industry. Once he realized that the oceans call never quite subsides, he decided to return to his hometown of Deerfield Beach and took the position as 1st Mate onboard a sailing catamaran. While working onboard, Rich quickly realized his natural ability was that of a captain. He took his passion for the sea and made that his career.
Capt Rich has been a Professional Licensed Captain since 2002. He has held a variety of positions in the industry, ranging from the before mentioned sailboat captain, to a commercial towing and salvage captain, to the Senior Corporate Captain for Ferretti Group USA. During his career, Capt Rich has continuously advanced his professional education and currently holds his USCG 200/500 GT Masters with STCW 95 and Medical First Aid Provider.
Capt Rich has worked for the owner of M/Y Free Spirit since 2012, and onboard the Mangusta Free Spirit since it’s purchase in 2016. He has cruised the vessel extensively throughout the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Cuba, and Mexico.
When Capt Rich isn’t onboard M/Y Free Spirit you can find him with his family. He enjoys traveling, cooking, water sports, and spending quality time with family and friends.

CHEF Daniela Boia
Daniela was born and raised in Transylvania, Romania. After finishing her studies in Public Relations, she realized how much more of the world she wanted to see so she decided to join the cruise line industry. Daniela spent 8 years on cruise ships, sightseeing around the globe and working up the ranks in the Food and Beverage department. On a vacation to South Florida she fell in love with a Cuban (no, just joking!) she means the weather; Daniela fell in love with the South Florida weather and never left!
She found her way into the yachting industry and quickly found herself splitting her time between Miami, the Bahamas and New York as a stewardess before running a fleet program as Personal Assistant and Chief Stewardess.
Daniela left behind her position in the fleet when she was offered the opportunity to be a part of a Miami Restauranteurs Group and did not hesitate to take it! She was part of successful local restaurants such as Seaspice, River yacht Club and Dashi. In the past three years, Daniela has opened her own catering company offering her private Chef and Event Planning services to the domestic and yachting industry.
In her free time, Daniela loves to swim and paddleboard in the ocean.

Taylor completed his Engineering course for yachts in 2019 and has since worked on several vessels ranging in size from 90-145’.

This Yacht offers a “Plus Expenses” Rate:

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.
