Crew Profiles:

Captain Dan has been boating since childhood on his family's lake boat. He quickly developed a love of all water sports, which carried on into his adult life as a Divemaster and Instructor. Dan hails from Ohio, but don't let that fool you, he is a Michigan Wolverines fan. When he is not watching college football, his true team is the Washington Capitals.

Dans career path started in the hospitality field managing simultaneous restaurant concepts, making the switch over to yachting seem easy. He jumped right into his yachting career with several summers going up and down the East Coast and winters in the Bahamas. He currently holds his 200T Master USCG license and his 500T International, with the drive to move up to his 1600T in the near future. He has since captained the waters of the Caribbean, San Juans, Western Canada, and the entire Eastern and Western seaboard of the U.S. Now onboard M/Y Hannah, Dan is pursuing his dream of developing a well-loved charter program and keeping her in the best possible condition. Dan brings with him a great enthusiasm for entertaining our guests and making lasting memories, with safety being his top priority.


Gillian grew up just outside of Washington, DC in the suburbs of Maryland. Her childhood revolved around the water, learning to swim, sail, and crab on Chesapeake Bay and Lake Michigan in the summers. After graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in Art Studio and Design, she embarked on her hospitality journey. Working her way up in the hotel world, she found herself as part of the corporate opening team for Kimpton Hotels all while holding the Food and Beverage AGM position at the local South Beach Hotel in Miami. This heightened her love for travel and she quickly realized she would rather travel for work on the high seas. She joined the wonderful world of yachting in 2018 as a cook/stew. Enthusiastically finding herself with a passion for the culinary arts, she committed to a full-time position in the galley. She has now sailed the entire East and West coast of the United States including Alaska, Central America through the Panama Canal, a few Caribbean islands, and a vast majority of the Bahamas. Her passion for food shines brightly through all of the dishes she creates.
