      Ulf Schabacker | Captain

      Ulf was born and raised in East Germany, before he moved to Munich where he studied Hotel/Catering Management and continued with Sport and Tourism Management. His love for the water started in his early years when he spent all summers at the German beaches, where he also got his first introduction in to sailing. After spending several years working in hotel and restaurant management his urge of exploring the seas led him to a maritime academy in England. He started delivering sail boats from anywhere in Europe until he got hired as a mate on his first Motor Yacht. Within one year he was offered his first position as captain and now has over 18 years experience within the maritime industry.

      As the Captain, Ulf’s primary focus is to ensure the safety of the guests, crew and the vessel. His duties range from navigation to accounting, planning and managing charters to the overall management of the yacht and the crew. He encourages all departments to work as a team to ensure that each charter will be a rewarding experience. He is operating “Big Sky” with the right balance between a formal and a casual ambiance which is desired by all guests.

Kevin moved to Fort Lauderdale in 2012 to chase his dreams of joining the yachting world. He has worked on over 5 yachts in all regions of the world including the Mediterranean, the South Pacific and the Caribbean. When Kevin isn’t being a grease monkey he is always on the hunt for waves. Kevin grew up surfing on the eastern coast of Australia. He also loves anything to do with cars and motorcycles.
