Captain Adam Cunerd started boating at the age of 8 with his family and neighbors on the Severn River just outside of Annapolis, MD. Water-skiing, fishing and cruising were his favorite activities through the years, which expanded his knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. In his later teenage years and twenties, working at various marinas in the area, he became more involved in the handling, maintenance and mechanics of boating. He attended Chapman’s School of Seamanship in Stuart, Florida, which helped him make his decision to work on private yachts as a professional crew member. Attaining his master’s license in 1993, he has traveled and gained cruising experience in the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence Seaway, East Coast north to Nova Scotia, Canadian Maritimes, New England, the East Coast of Florida, Mississippi River, Ten Tom Waterway and its tributaries, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. With this experience he has gained the knowledge and skills to be a confident Master.
Though born in Staten Island, NY; Angelo was raised in Memphis. He has always felt drawn by some magnetic force to the ocean; the sound, the smell, the feel. After high school and college, he worked in real estate, however that allure of boats never went away. In 2009 he changed course and moved to Honduras where he began his dive career. He taught SCUBA in Honduras, Panama, Israel, and Thailand. Making bubbles is Angelo’s passion and he loves to take photographs of his adventures. He believes instinctively that being near the ocean makes us happier, healthier, reduces stress and brings us peace. Yachting has combined his passions and he has quickly worked his way up to mate. He is currently pursuing his captain’s license.
Born and raised in South Florida, Brittany spent four years working with kids at a preschool in addition to attending college. Looking for a bit of adventure at 22, she followed the advice of a captain friend and joined the yachting industry. Brittany enjoys being on the water. Working as a stewardess in the past two years, she has visited Alaska and the Bahamas. She is looking forward to exploring the Bahamas and sharing her experiences with the guests. Her other interests include hiking, playing tennis and soft ball.
Alec was raised in Puerto Rico and has a profound love for the water. He swam competitively at an early age and later turned pro. He has competed against the world’s greats such as Michael Phelps and Cesar Cielo. In addition, he was a lifeguard and swim coach for 5 years. On a trip to Puerto Rico he met a fellow deckhand who told him about the limitless adventures and opportunities in yachting. He moved to Florida and has been working as a deckhand since. Amicable and easy going, Alec looks forward to meeting guests and making their stay enjoyable.
DECEMBER 2016 BAHAMAS
We, a family of eight, boarded “Loose Ends” a few days before Christmas for a week long cruise in the Bahamas. Our expectations were high as it should be, and were further stepped up after we have had the opportunity to further examine the ship immediately following our arrival. The ship was so beautiful and inviting, with everything in mint condition and polished in every detail, and with all the sportive toys one could ever wish for. The interior in particular with its art deco style gave us a feeling we were the privileged guests in the best of all scenes of glorious past times. Avery satisfactory feeling indeed! But above all, as we increasingly found out during the week to come, the crew was the best of all. From the point of them greeting us at the airport to our goodbye at port they were great all the way through. Adam, the captain, was a true professional with a vast experience of both the Caribbean and the ship itself. Adam exceeded our highest expectations.We were all amazed how he managed to dock the ship in narrow waters so smoothly and neatly. As for his navigation, he was almost pirate like in his knowledge, constantly finding just the right ports, coves and exciting islands to explore. And Sergio, the chef, was not just a professional, he was an artist too. Everything from breakfast to dinner and snacks were made in perfection and with out most passion, with a rich variety although with a clear theme and connection to the location. He was so attentive to our preferences and requests and happily prepared special dishes and snacks for William, the only infant aboard,who with equally great enthusiasm showed his appreciation and delight! The other crew – Brittany, and Alec and Josh, the deckhands, were all utterly friendly, professional and delightful at all times. They were not only great at their jobs, but also very personal in their care, making us all feel relaxed,familiar and above all happy! We quickly became friends with them and departing felt a bit sad.
Altogether, our stay at Loose Ends is one of the better family moments we have ever had and we can only give it our best recommendations. To anyone reading this, who consider a Bahamian cruise and have the chance to go with this ship commanded by Adam and his crew – take it!
