Crew

Crew Information

Captain: Sean Kampfer

Captain - Sean Kampfer
Born and raised on Long Island NY, Captain Sean joined the boating scene at a young age. Beginning with his parent’s boats and restoring an old sailing boat of his own he eventually began running water taxis and mid-size passenger vessels to the city. Falling hard for yachting one summer after joining a busy charter yacht in New England he has not looked back. Sean is a hands-on captain who takes great pride in any vessel or program he runs. He is guest satisfaction oriented and aims to make your time aboard TAIL LIGHTS a fantastic and memorable one! Sean is a licensed pilot and in his spare time you might find him sailing, flying, snowboarding, golfing, and spending plenty of time at the beach. Previous yachts: SEAFARER, JOPAJU, ENDEVOUR, SERENITY, FRISKY LADY.

Chef – Daniela Boia’
Chef Daniela was born and raised in Transylvania, Romania. After finishing her studies in Public Relations, she realized how much more of the world she wanted to see so she decided to join the cruise industry and sail around the world. She went sightseeing for 8 years around the globe and moved up the ranks in various Food and Beverage departments. While on vacation in South Florida, she fell in love with a Cuban (no, just joking) she means the weather… Daniela fell in love with the South Florida weather and beaches and never left. She found her way into the yachting industry and into the Miami restaurant business very quickly, adding up more hospitality experience. When the pandemic hit, she shut down her catering business and turned to yachting again successfully sharing her culinary creations with the TAIL LIGHTS charter guests and crew.

Chief Stewardess – Raluca Ghenoiu
Raluca is from Bucharest in beautiful Romania. Raluca is passionate about working with people and has spent a great deal of time in the hospitality & service industry. Raluca has a nursing degree from Romania and has volunteered in hospitals. Raluca turned to waitressing as a way to help her pay for school, while getting experience in hospitality. With over 17 years’ of experience in hospitality Raluca has traveled from Europe to the Caribbean, working in various restaurants, Cruise ships, and Yachts. Raluca is very active, enthusiastic about life, has a love for the ocean and nature, and enjoys sharing her experiences while helping the guests on TAIL LIGHTS create memories for a lifetime. During her free time, she enjoys hiking, swimming, reading, building puzzles, and spending time with her friends and family.

2nd Stewardess – Jade Leonard
Jade was born in New York, and moved with her family to Paris, and then settled in Montreal. In Montreal, Jade loved to swim at her community pool. That is where she discovered her passion for synchronized swimming, lifeguarding and the water. In college, Jade enrolled in an Intro to Marine Biology course, where she had the opportunity to snorkel and study marine ecosystems in Belize. Jade worked hospitality for over 7 years and was convinced that her skills would work well in yachting. She also likes to practice yoga and calligraphy, read, run, swim and plan events. Jade is very excited to create amazing experiences for the TAIL LIGHTS guests.

1st Mate – Andrew Williams
Andrew grew up in Pensacola where the water is a blue and the sands are bright white. As he grew up, he spent much of his time either at the beach, playing sports, or camping in the woods just north of his hometown. Although he lived around the water all his life, Andrew didn’t join the yachting industry until 2017 after he had gone to college in pursuit of a Computer Science degree, ran his own Landscaping business, and worked at a bingo hall. Andrew’s hobbies include traveling, diving, sports, and outdoor activities. Andrew has been in the yachting industry for almost 5 years, has obtained a 200-ton Captains license, and jointed the team on TAIL LIGHTS to help provide their guests with amazing and unique experiences!

Engineer – Shawn Wakefield
Shawn first fell in love with the ocean when he was very young. Growing up on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, he spent his time exploring the dunes and the underwater world at age 10. Shawn’s love of the ocean led him to George Stone Technical Center becoming an Outboard Engine Technician in Pensacola, Florida, before moving to South Florida where he ran daily scuba charters as a Scuba Instructor leading dives and teaching students his passion for the sea. After many years working in the hospitality industry and working on the water he obtained his 100ton Captains license and was presented with the opportunity to join TAIL LIGHTS. Shawn is sure to add an element of excitement to your journey aboard TAIL LIGHTS.

TAIL LIGHTS CHARTER TESTIMONIALS

Testimonials:

November 2022

Captain Sean was outstanding. Very accommodating but firm when necessary.

Chef Thomas Day
We were extremely surprised and pleased with the quality of Tom’s cuisine. He was a star.

Presentation, flavors, quality exceeded expectations, very thoughtful in terms of what we wanted and impressive variety.

We loved Stewardesses Becky and Jade. They were attentive even when we didn’t know it, we literally couldn’t touch a glass without them intervening and assisting. Also great personality fits for us.

The Deck Crew were very helpful with the toys and were outstanding in their own ways. . Impressive in the consistency and quality of service.


Yacht:
Interior & exterior condition was Like new, what else can I say?
Layout and ambiance was Superb.


Tenders & toys:
Really appreciated Susan’s assistance and guidance on this, the variety of toys made a huge difference.

Any room for improvements? No, my entire group was blown away, we will definitely do this again.

Will return to TAIL LIGHTS soon.

February 2022

Well after much thought I have to confess the following negatives about our week on Tail Lights….
1) It’s over. ☹
2) Pretty sure we each came home a few pounds heavier.
3) Back home we experienced much separation anxiety ---from Dave’s cooking, Michelle’s margaritas, Sarah’s smiling face, Garrett’s “fix it” skills, Peter’s expertise on all things floating and/or motorized, and of course Captain Sean’s friendly personality, skill and leadership.
In other words, I don’t think we could top this crew and this trip. The fact that all the crew members had just met each other the week before was unbelievable. They were so highly skilled, amicable, pleasant, and compatible. When Dave heard we wanted to watch the Super Bowl, he quickly designed a 9 course menu of Super Bowl food. I’ve never had anything like it! Every half hour we had some mouthwatering, extraordinary appetizer—all leading up to the grand finale of sliders and crispy hot fries…and warm brownies. One night we celebrated our son in law’s bday and were surprised with a Disco theme complete with costumes. The entire crew joined in and made the night so fun. Michelle and Sarah could not have been more delightful, kinder, more patient and ready to meet our every need. I wanted to bring them home! All of the crew was top notch and we would not change a thing.


May 2021
"We just arrived home and as you can imagine everyone was very sad to leave the boat. The boat was awesome and Capitan Sean and Crew were amazing. My kids are still posting the amazing meals Chef Tom cooked and all the adults are missing the fabulous drinks that were prepared by Suzy Q and Jess. Sean, Chris , Jess and Rob (aka Dallas) did a great Job getting all our adventures in even with the wind blowing. As I told them when we left the boat is great but the Crew really made the trip something special.
Thanks for your help in arranging and we will definitely contact you for our next trip on Tail Lights."

Hi Susan

The below message says it all.

Thank you and take care.

Neil Emmott

"Dear Neil,

From our whole family we can’t thank you enough! This was by far the best trip of our lives. We are beyond grateful to both of you for making this happen. Thank you, thank you.

The yacht and the crew were beyond our expectations and we all enjoyed every minute of it. And don’t get me started on the chef and all of our meals, an absolute 10+!

The only worry we have now is how will we ever top this? We need to plan the next one!

Thank you again,
Charterer


September 2022
Hi Susan,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you with feedback from the "Charterer" They had a great few days aboard TAIL LIGHTS and really liked the crew, and had zero complaints or suggestions. I was discussing another charter with the client earlier this week and they would have taken TAIL LIGHTS again later this month if she wasn’t already booked and heading south. His wife also sent me the following message.

Thank you for checking in. We had an amazing time on the Tail Lights and the crew was so nice!

Warm Regards,

Charterer

Broker:
From a personal perspective I found Captain Sean excellent to work with. He took control of everything, was extremely responsive and nothing was any problem - I had full confidence that he and the crew were going to deliver a great experience for the guests. I would not hesitate to put clients aboard TAIL LIGHTS in the future (and based on the bookings you have for the winter I guess plenty of others share that opinion!)

Thanks again,

Broker
Phil Brewster
