Captain James Bailie – James started out as a U.S. Navy seal back in the late eighty’s, specializing in all waterborne operations. As an advanced combat diving instructor, skydiver, dive master and rescue diver, his sense for adventure, traveling and the outdoors have always been a passion. James worked as security manager for a couple of years, developing security protocols in the Middle East, but the water lured him back to obtain his USCG Master with sailing and commercial towing endorsement. James served as a mate on a 55’ sailing yacht which introduced him to larger vessels and through the years climbed the ladder to having his hand as captain at the helm. He has been a crew member and captain of motor and sailing yachts and always puts safety as his number one priority. He is a responsible team player, always ready to help.
Diego has always enjoyed being around the water. He also loves fishing and ‘playing’ with the water toys, as he says, showing the guests a good time is not a job, but a full time favorite thing to do. Diego managed and worked for Boat Rental Company in Miami for many years and from there on found his position as mate on various size vessels. Diego’s last position was on M/Y Dorothy Ann, which also included land based responsibilities of managing a large estate and staff on a private island. He mostly enjoys the navigational aspects of his position, yet, setting out the toys, driving the tender and going fishing is his favorite times on board. Diego lives in Boca Raton and is fluent in 4 languages.
