Chief Stewardess

Florida native Kate Chastain began her yachting career in 2007. Initially only planning on taking a "gap year" working on boats, she immediately fell in love with the exotic and exciting industry and never looked back. While traveling throughout the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Central America, and New England, Kate worked her way up the ranks to the position of Chief Stewardess. Best known for planning and executing lavish vacations and theme parties, Kate has entertained royalty, celebrities, and business tycoons around the world.  

After a few years of international adventures and glamorous guests, Kate began to compile her stories from the sea hoping to one day share them with the world.  In 2016, those stories were published in her book, Lucky Charming, which quickly became an Amazon #1 Best Seller in the Humor category.  After nearly a decade globetrotting with the rich and famous, conquering the yachting world, and even writing the book about it, Kate has now focused on building a more domestic life on land…with the option to take a freelance charter whenever the urge for adventure strikes, of course.
