SERENITY Crew Profile
Captain Scott Gaffga
Scott is a young, energetic, fun loving captain who looks forward to showing guests a great time in South Florida, the Keys and throughout the Bahamas on board Serenity. Serenity is well equipped with all of the toys; a towed fishing boat, sea bobs, wave runners and more; and Captain Scott and his crew are the perfect fit for fun and adventure. Scott grew up in the Florida Keys and has always been in or around the water and boats. He loves fishing, snorkeling and showing guests the next great anchorage or secluded bay in the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas. Scott has done many charters in South Florida and the Bahamas and knows the area well. His experience makes him wonderful at planning an itinerary that includes action and adventure or if you prefer, relaxing, calm and secluded, just let him know your mood of the day! Scott and his crew have a great team attitude and this enthusiasm and charm shows through and ensures a successful charter and many repeat clients!
Mate Nick Starkey
Nick and Scott grew up together in the Florida Keys and now get to work together on Serenity. Nick also has this same sort of friendly, laid back personality that starts with a smile and instantly puts charter guests at ease on board Serenity. Nick is up for fun and ready to go, be it playing ball on the beach with kids, taking a group out for a snorkel or doing some offshore trolling on the tender. Nick is happy to set it all up and hopefully come back with fresh fish for dinner! In addition to all of this, he keeps the yacht looking pristine and all of the toys working and ready to go. Nick and Scott have done many charters in South Florida and the Bahamas so let them know if you are ready to go shelling, have a beach picnic or take a nap on the flybridge and they can suggest the perfect spot to be.
Stewardess Ingrid Gustman
Ingrid is originally from Norway and boats have always seemed to be in her blood. She grew up around boats and so naturally has made this her profession. Her brother works as a captain and her husband works on yachts as a mate. Ingrid has many times been described as “non stop energy” by charter guests and her crew alike. Her never ending hard working attitude, constant smile and contagious energy brings life and enjoyment to all who are around her on board Serenity. She enjoys all water sports and has a culinary back ground as well. You will leave Serenity pampered and happy and hopefully with the thought to return again!
Jeff?Ciucevich was the Chef onboard in 2011 on a freelance basis, and will most likely be hired permanently in the very near future.

Not only is his food fantastic, but so is his presentation, which can be seen in the photos at??www.serenityyachtcharter.com, along with sample menus.
Aug 2010 Bahamas - post charter comments from clients
"It was the most amazing trip we have ever been on! The Crew was fantastic! We are actually in Miami today and leaving for St Barts tomorrow. It is going to be such a letdown from what we have just experienced. I will send you a detailed letter about our charter when we get back. I cannot say enough about Scott, Nick, Karen, and Tammara. The boat was amazing as well.?
Dear Captain Scott,
I wanted to thank you and your crew for the wonderful charter we had on board The Serenity. The yacht is of course absolutely beautiful, the food was spectacular but the service is what impressed us most.
We were so very thrilled with the level of attention your crew gave to us and our guests. To travel with children from the ages of 10 to 21 and find activities that everyone enjoys is certainly difficult, but you and your crew managed it effortlessly. The kids are still raving about the trip and anxious to do it again.
Please thank your crew for making this one of our most memorable vacations. You will be our first call when we?re ready to book our next charter.
I spoke with Jason shortly after his charter and he said his experience was beyond anything in his wildest dreams! He could not have asked for anything more ? he loved Captain Scott and the crew and said they all worked really well as a team and it showed; he LOVED the boat; and he had such an enjoyable experience that he?s told all of his friends that they need to charter SERENITY!! Hopefully the phones will start burning up soon for referral charters with Scott and SERENITY .Thank you so much for everything you did to make this charter such a success ? this is a perfect example of us all working together to provide an unforgettable experience for charter clients, especially first time charter clients such as these. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you again soon!
