Below is some information about her great crew who will take care of your every need with professionalism and warmth.
Luxury yacht Magic Captain: Mac MacDonald
"It is now my 14th year in yachting. I started my career delivering yachts for local brokerage houses in Ft. Lauderdale, gaining the respect of the industry as a solid performer and an extremely safe Captain. I was also teaching PADI diving on the local reefs off Ft. Lauderdale. I really enjoy spear-fishing and catching lobsters. I bring on board a degree of professionalism that is envied by many, matched by few, and followed by the crew that have the privilege of working with. I genuinely enjoy yachting and all that it has to offer. My theory for yachting is that my crew and I are here to provide an experience of a lifetime for the guests through the finest and safest service any vessel can offer whilst exploring interesting locales and regions."
'Chef: Betsy MacDonald
"After obtaining my degree in Banking & Finance, I graduated from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America. I am a Certified Chef, USCG 100T Master, and PADI certified diver. Captain Mac and I have been a successful charter team for 13 years. This experience is reflected in my ability to customize menus to suit my guest's every need and desire. I am proficient in a wide variety of menus including New American, Mediterranean, and Spa Cuisine. I love to bake (and the crew enjoys that!) I was recently featured in two leading charter publications and was commended for my excellence in the industry. My cookies are known throughout the shipyards of Europe, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and the east coast of the US. They have often contributed to the vessel being on time for project completion."
