Gus Bolanos - American

Captain Gus was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the yachting capital of the world. He spent much of his childhood in Bimini, Bahamas with his grandparents learning how to fish, dive, and navigate small boats through the local waters. He has always had a connection with the sea and was an avid sailor and boater all throughout his teenage years.

When he graduated boarding school in 2000 he went to sea working for the Seafarers International Union (SIU) as an Ordinary Seaman on ocean going ships. After several years of hard work and great experiences in the SIU he started working on sport fishing boats and yachts in South Florida cruising through the Bahamas, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, Central and South America and eventually settled in St. Thomas, in the USVI in the Caribbean.

Gus has worked on boats, yachts, and ships for 19 years and has logged over 20,000 nautical miles at sea; he holds a US Coast Guard 200 Ton Master License. He has spent the last 10 years on the beautiful waters of the USVI, BVI, and Spanish Virgin Islands, and has performed more than 65 day charters in the Virgins.

Michael Lombardi - American

Chef Michael, born in Staten Island, has been working on yachts since 2011 after hearing about the industry from friends. He has knowledge in pretty much every role on a yacht, including deckhand, engineer, and chef.

Before yachting, Michael was working as a private villa chef. During this time, he began to focus on the food he was most passionate about which is Carib-Americana. He continues to find joy in cooking this cuisine while also drawing inspiration from his Grandma and Uncle.

Michael's other passion in life is surfing. One of his favorite experiences was when he went backpacking and surfing through Central America. You can often find Michael discussing food, culture, and surfing.

"I love collaborating with guests on charter to find out what they do and do not like. It's more enjoyable to cook when you know the people you are cooking for!"

Dayami Rivera - American

Born and raised in the Bronx, Dayami is a huge Yankees fan and enjoys anything thrill seeking. One time she won an all paid trip to South Africa and cherishes it as her most adventurous experience! Water sports is one of her most enjoyable hobbies and she has been on boats with her captain father ever since she can remember.

After graduating with a degree in Human Persuasion, Dayami became ABA Therapist Certified. But, in 2019, she went back to her roots of the water and joined the yachting industry as a stewardess. Cruising New England was the beginning of her yachting career, with her favorite area being Nantucket. Now she is learning to love the Caribbean as M/Y ELITE's stewardess.

Dayami loves getting to know people, is excellent at multitasking, and enjoys motivating others to have fun. All of this combined makes her one of the best stews in the biz!
