Shawn’s love for the ocean began when he was only a few months old on the coast of North Carolina. Shawn grew up in Carolina Beach, NC where he learned to read the wind and waves and developed a passion to share his love of the ocean with others.
Shawn graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2011 with a degree in Marine Biology. Shortly after college, Shawn moved to Nicaragua to pursue his love of the ocean and worked as a Captain and surf guide for NicaSurf tours.
Following a couple great years in Central America, Shawn moved back to the states to continue his life on the water. In doing so, Shawn has spent the past 5 years working aboard world class super yachts. In which time, he has obtained his USCG Captains License as well as his American Sailing Association Certification.

Autumn was born in Michigan where she grew up swimming in the freshwater of the Great Lakes. After high school she studied massage therapy and yoga in Costa Rica where she fell in love with the salty ocean and travelling to new places. In 2013, Autumn moved to Florida to become a yacht stewardess. A job that would take her to many exotic places, even all the way back to lake Michigan.

For the last five years, Autumn has worked on multiple world class yachts in which she collaborated closely with five-star chefs from around the world. Learning from her yacht chef coworkers, she has developed a passion for creating exciting and healthy dishes that create memories.

Shawn and Autumn met in September of 2013 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where they were both searching for their first superyacht jobs. A week later, they found separate jobs on different boats, starting three years of long distance dating. In December of 2016, they decided it was time for an adventure and decided to travel New Zealand for a year together in a campervan they renovated themselves.

Shawn and Autumn love to spend time on the water, whether it’s diving, snorkeling, surfing, paddling or sailing. They are excited to bring their captain and crew knowledge of charter yachts to give you a sailing vacation you won’t forget.

So Many Good Memories

Our time aboard the yacht exceeded our expectations day after day. Everything we top notch from he delish dished prepared by the chef to the sailing and water games with the crew. Each day brought a new adventure from snorting, sailing, paddle boarding, exploring the Baths, Indian rock, Bubbly pool and White Bay. We made so many memories as a family aboard the boat and were truly grateful to spend Thanksgiving with the crew. What was the most impactful part of exploring the USVI and BVI was the genuine hospitality and kindness extended to all of us. We felt spoiled and at home from day one to the very end. You truly made the trip better. It's not everyday that we meet people like you both and we feel lucky to have spent time aboard the yacht with you! I think it's safe to say we will be back to the Islands and would love to sail with you again. Until next time we meet be safe and enjoy the sun, the sea and the sand (and the dolphins) We can't thank you enough for making with the best week of the year. All the best to you both.

Can’t Wait To Return

This trip has been beyond our expectations! The two of you made your jobs look effortless, thank you so much for all you did to make this BVI vacation one we will never forget. We are blessed to have met you and look forward to our next adventure with you.

by April Charter Guests on Epic Yacht Charters

Thank you so much for making our introduction to the Caribbean so wonderful. We could not have asked for anything better, it was a wonderful week. The company, the food, the knowledge… it was all AMAZING! We had a blast and are already looking forward to when we can come back!

Wow, Where Do We Start?

Wow, where do I start with feedback for Kelea? Out of all the spectacular charters we have done, Kelea by far was the best of all trips rolled into one. Food, drinks, and table décor-5 star. Attention to detail-5 star. Service and Attentiveness-5 star. As we plan to sail in the BVI next year as we always do...I'm not sure another yacht could top anything Kelea had to offer, simply unbelievable on all levels. We will be certain to charter with them again on our upcoming vacation.
