Jonathan has a strong background in hospitality and management and has been working aboard KNOT TIDE for over 8 years. After spending a few years in Texas he moved to Ft. Lauderdale with his family and soon got involved in the yachting industry. He has worked as mate aboard vessels 60'-100' and has been involved in the refit of several boats.
Jonathan loves to be on the water and his priority (second only to safety) is helping to provide the charter guests with the best and most memorable experiences while staying aboard KNOT TIDE
Client and his family had a lovely time aboardKNOT TIDE. He spoke very highly of the crew and commended them on their goodpreparation for the charter. He said it was a trip of a lifetime, and asidefrom a few very windy days that limited their itinerary a bit he said he had nocomplaints, whatsoever.
We had a blast and everything was perfect. Alan, Jonathanand Alice were all very fun and attentive. The crew could not have beenbetter. The yacht was in great shape and food was delicious. I havenothing negative to say about the entire trip! I would not hesitate tocharter Knot Tide again. Tammy was very surprised and we enjoyed our timewith our friends. Thanks for helping organize the trip. Now, backto reality.
They absolutely loved the boat. Great condition, good space, loved the layout. Even though they had 8 people they didn’t feel like they were on top ofeach other.
Enjoyed all the water toys and the big tender was a huge plus. The crew were fantastic. Kyle was phenomenal. Adrienne did a fabulous jobwith the food - she stuck to their preference sheets and did a great job catering to the different diets. Jonathan was wonderful with the kids.
