Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for PEARL
Captain: Simeon Korfanty (44)
Captain: Simeon Korfanty

Captain Simeon Korfanty

Simeon’s love of boats and sailing starting when he became a PADI SCUBA Instructor in Greece. British by birth, Simeon also worked as a SCUBA Instructor in Nicaragua, Vietnam and the Maldives before landing himself a job in the British Virgin Islands on a large charter yacht as SCUBA Instructor.

Simeon has completed over 4600 SCUBA dives, certified 220 students and trained 6 Divemasters.

In 2009 he took a sabbatical, first purchasing a 27’ sailing yacht and having many adventures throughout the Caribbean. Ask him to tell you the stories about Cuba and the Coast Guard. It will spice up your cocktail hour aboard PEARL.

For cocktail hour, Simeon’s specialty is a Basil Grande, Chambord with Cranberry Juice with strawberries crushed and sieved thru a tea strainer, shaken up and then garnished with a basil leaf floating on top with a twist of cracked pepper!

After his sail around the Caribbean on his own boat, he went back to the United Kingdom to obtain his Level 3 Advanced Personal Trainer certificate for his own personal knowledge.

Simeon is also an accomplished free diver who trained with 16-time world champion Umberto Pelizzari in Egypt. Simeon has a personal breath hold time of 5 minutes and 35 seconds and depth personal best of 148.5 feet. Please don’t get him to try that on charter, but he could probably pick up the sunglasses you drop off the boat!

Simeon has done approximately 150 charters throughout the Caribbean steadily climbing the ladder until he became a Captain. About that time Simeon thought that he would try his hand at crewing Mega yachts and landed a highly coveted job on Motor Yacht A, 393ft long, and crossing the Atlantic more then once -including delivering a 55 meter yacht from Italy to St Martin.

After spending the winter season as Lead Dive Instructor on a large dive boat, he is thrilled to have found the perfect yacht PEARL as Captain along with his partner Alayna.

Chef Alayna Beebe

Alayna Beebe grew up in Newport, RI where she learned to sail and race at a young age mainly on J boats and Lasers. Her passion for life on the water followed her after graduating from Hobart and William Smith College in upstate NY. After 10 years working between the corporate world and the hospitality industry Alayna made the jump to become a full time crew on a variety of yachts, ranging from a 85ft private sport fishing custom built Johnson, cruising the East coast of the USA, to a 105ft sailing and dive charter boat in the BVI. Alayna’s first step onto yachts was a Stewardess/Deckhand position, but quickly led towards cooking and culinary creations. Her experience in event planning and her Studio Arts degree was an outlet for her creative brain which she now loves to express in the culinary world. Her emphasis on health and wellness has driven her to look for healthy fresh cuisine that doesn’t sacrifice flavor or aesthetics. She is newly certified open diver and loves to dive the beautiful sites around the BVI’s with the guests as much as possible.

In her downtime Alayna still loves to paint with Acrylics and to learn about the history and origins of food and cooking. Health and fitness is also has a strong presence in her life and likes to run and exercise whenever the opportunity arises.

Testimonials

Easter week guests aboard catamaran PEARL said:

Our family of 6 had an absolutely incredible week on Pearl. The boat was perfect for us and Ilan and Shani were amazing. Ilan is a very knowledgable and active Captain. He was constantly teaching us about the area and the marine life. Our kids were always engaged in activities and Ilan provided SCUBA instruction and took everyone diving. That was an experience they will never forget. Shani provided us with a constant stream of delicious meals and was sure that our every need was met. There was nothing we could have asked for that they couldn't have provided. We will cherish the memories that we made as a family aboard Pearl. Thank you Ilan and Shani!

Our week on the Pearl was nothing  short of fabulous!  We were definitely spoiled the whole week. The Pearl is very spacious and comfortable. The rooms had everything we needed and were a lot bigger than I thought they would be!  The boat had a lot of room to spread out and relax. We loved sitting up front on the dolphin seats when we were sailing from island to island and relaxing on the bean bags with a cup of coffee, a book or a cocktail enjoying the views in beautiful coves. 

This was really a floating all inclusive resort. The food prepared by Shani was awesome!  Every meal I said wow, this is delicious. Beautiful presentation and I liked that we were surprised every meal with something new and different. Ooh, I can’t wait to see what’s for dinner today! :).  She really took the time to make each meal special.  She is a very talented cook and we loved having a wide variety at each meal plus a happy hour snacks. 

Ilan was a great bartender making many different drinks for us. They had a wide variety and really any kind of drink you’d want. I think he made the best painkillers!  Especially loved that they had drinks ready and waiting for us as they welcomed us on the boat the first day.  That set the stage for the whole week!   

I felt very comfortable with Ilan as our captain.  He was very knowledgeable of sailing, safety and all things boating!  For those of us that wanted a sailing lesson, he was happy to give a lesson. Every morning he would show us where we were in the BVI and what was on the agenda for the day.  

Never having sailed in the BVI, I thought he put together a nice itinerary for us. We really left that up to him.  I thought we went to all great places to stop to swim, anchor for the night, etc. and we got to see many different islands and enjoyed the sails.  We did a nice loop around the islands.  

Ilan was also our dive master/instructor and took us on some great dives!  It was great they had all of the dive equipment we needed and enough snorkel gear for everyone. 

Both Ilan and Shani were very accommodating and really made our week wonderful. 

I truly have nothing but positive things to say about the crew, the boat and the BVIs!  

We really enjoyed meeting you both and hope to see you again!

We had a fabulous trip! Ilan and Shani lovely people. We really enjoyed getting to know them. The food was exceptional and we felt like we were in caring hands the whole time. The damage from the hurricane was not overly obvious and the islanders are making every effort to get their lives back to normal. I have zero complaints! Oh, also, Pearl is a very comfortable and well maintained boat.

Thank you for you help with setting up this joyful family experience.
Peace,
Anne

Guests aboard PEARL in early July, 2014 -
Thank you so much for everything you did in getting us set up for our vacation of a lifetime!!!   We greatly appreciated your help too when we arrived in St. Thomas with a bag missing.   It was nice to have your help in getting us to Red Hook and keeping in contact with Tamas and Sara.
Thank you for all that you did in answering all of our questions prior to our trip too.   It was all extremely helpful and helped us to make the best decision ever in selecting Tamas, Sara and The Pearl!!!
We had a vacation of a lifetime!!!!   Everything was absolutely perfect!!!!   I don't know if I have the words to describe the memories that we created during the last week.  These could not have been possible without Tamas, Sara and The Pearl!!!   Tamas and Sara were so gracious and welcoming from the very beginning…  They opened up their home to us and the services they provided were excellent!!!  We so enjoyed getting to know them.  We enjoyed everything about the trip.  Some of the highlights included:
Tamas and Sara's approach to their jobs.  They are positive and passionate about what they do and it showed up every minute of every day.  Their attitudes, smiles and laughs were contagious!!!
The delicious food that Sara prepared was incredible!!!
The ever flowing drinks that Tamas prepared for "Happy Hour" were wonderful.   Something different was prepared every day!!!
Our Happy Hour on the 4th of July had a special Red White and Blue theme drink along with some American Corn Dogs!!!   So fun!!!
They were extremely knowledgeable about sailing which put us at ease of course.  So  we appreciated their expert sailing skills!!!
They were also very skilled at diving.  We appreciated their patience with us since we are beginner divers.  The dive spots they selected were perfect for our level of diving experience and we greatly appreciated them taking it slow and easy for us.
Their answer was always yes.   No matter what we asked to see or do,  they always said YES….   So we did everything we wanted to do!!!
 And, the boat is too cool for words.   Every place we stopped, we had so many people asking about the cool features of the boat.  It was awesome!!!   It was very comfortable and our beds were made and bathrooms were cleaned daily!!!
They took us to places on the islands that we didn't even know about such as Sydney's, Bubble Bath, Saba Rock etc..
I could go on and on but these were just a few of the highlights of our trip.   It was truly the best vacation Richard, Jennifer, Travis and I have ever had.
Tamas and Sara are a very energetic couple and they are what made our trip both adventurous and luxurious all at the same time!!!  It was everything we wanted and then some!!!   I just can't say enough good things about Tamas, Sara, The Pearl and our vacation.
 Thank you again for getting us in contact with Tamas, Sara and The Pearl!!!
If you ever have any specific questions about our fantastic trip,  don't hesitate to contact us….
It's Monday, so I guess we better get to work so we can start saving up for our 2nd Vacation of a Lifetime.    So when we contact you, just know that we will not be interested in any other crew or boat.    So go ahead and make a note that we will only be interested in booking Tamas, Sara and The Pearl!!!
Thank you again,
Richard and Linda Hay

Hi Pamela
Wanted to thank you with your help for our trip.  We had a great time on the Pearl.  The Captain (tamas) and first mate (sara) would wonderful.  My family had a great, memorable and fun trip.  I was sick the entire trip but still managed to have a great trip.  Tamas and Sara were wonderful in every way.  The Pearl is "their" boat/home and it showed.  The boat was spacious, the activities were exactly what we wanted when we wanted them.  Overall we could not have asked for a better trip.  I heard that the weather the week before was not too good and the week after was not too good so we planned it perfectly.  Thanks for your help and wanted to let you know what a great time was had by all.  Also, Windward passage was fine for a stopover and Oceana for dinner was excellent.
Best to you 
Suzanne





From guests aboard PEARL in early January, 2014
We are back in Miami and still reminiscing of our time on PEARL. I am sure we are not the first clients to tell you how wonderful Tamas and Sara are, but it is definitely worth me telling you again!
Yes, it's their job to be accommodating and friendly and with a high end charter, we expected no less. But Tamas and Sara were so much more than that. The pre-charter preference sheet we filled out that asked what foods we liked, alcohol we liked, and what kind of activities we enjoyed was thoroughly looked over before they provisioned the boat for our week and it was obvious! Sara prepared meal after meal that we all loved! She knew Jake loved chicken, Ciera's favourite was vegetables and lamb, Randy's favourite was steak and over the course of the week, all 6 of us had our favourite food PLUS loved every meal she made! We joked with Sarah every meal, "how can you top this one?" She even accommodated me with my preferred breakfast shake of papaya, peanut butter, spinach and yogurt! Sara is such a wonderful cook and presents each meal with class.  I think we all gained at least 5 pounds but we made a pact among our family that we could not complain about gaining weight or we would have to do a shot of tequila! (we still had to do a few)
Tamas knows what he's doing on that boat! We loved that he was willing to explain the sailing, the cleaning, the maintenance... whatever we wanted to know. Some sailors can be a bit conceited, but Tamas was knowledgeable without being a prick. He was always willing to "entertain" with the water sports, or pumping up the kayake, tube, etc.. Ciera and Ian really enjoyed having him take them diving.... We noticed and appreciated how hard both Sara and Tamas work all day, and even with that weariness they must have felt, they were always pleasant!
We felt better the nights that we got them to go out with us or sit down and play a card game and have drinks with us... they sooo deserved it by the end of a day! They are a fun couple and our family enjoyed our week aboard Pearl and we have some Fantastic family memories !
Thanks you too for helping arrange the whole thing.
Cheers,
Jane
