Meet the Crew

Crew photo
Dan & Elise

Captain Dan Szymczak has been enamored of the sea since his grandfather, a fisherman and clammer, first showed him a chart of Long Island Sound. Dan spent his youth in southern Connecticut on both fresh and saltwater kayaking, sailing, and fishing. His love of water sports, craft cocktails, and trivia will help make your vacation unparalleled.

While teaching English literature and public speaking at several colleges in New York City, Dan couldn’t help but feel the desire to be on the water, and this led to his career in yachting, working on a schooner in Manhattan. He then transitioned into eco-tourism, where he wowed guests by driving them to see cracking glaciers and breeching whales in Southeast Alaska and mega pods with thousands of dolphins in the Baja peninsula. He’s also an accomplished expedition leader, leading hikes to spot local wildlife, and he has extensive knowledge of both birds and sea life alike.

Chef Elise Lindbergh

Elise was initiated into the culinary world by her food-centered family. As a child, she would help cultivate the garden, and her family would invite friends to join them in the spacious kitchen to help make homemade pasta. Elise’s father then would select the best tomatoes and basil leaves from the garden to make the sauce. Everyone would then gather outside to enjoy the meal as the sun was setting. This was a beloved social event. Elise’s devotion to food blossomed, and at the age of 14 she started a baking business where she would be commissioned to bake elaborate specialty fondant cakes. She continued this business throughout high school. While studying anthropology and philosophy at Bowdoin College in Maine, she started selling her homemade hummus and cooking weekly meals with her friends. After she graduated, she received a scholarship to attend an 8-week culinary course in Virginia, taught by recognized Swiss Master Chef Rolf Strub, and under the direction of Chef Antwon Brinson. Her culinary interests are informed by her world travels, which include a 9-month stay in India, a month in Nepal, and multiple stays in Europe and Central America. She further honed her culinary skills in the three seasons she worked in the Caribbean as a yacht chef. more

Her cuisine is strongly influenced by Asian, French, and Central American methods, ingredients, and philosophies of food. She believes a meal should be both a social event and an experience that titillates all of the senses. Her food is flavorful, colorful, and uses the freshest ingredients. She prides herself on making her own bread, pastries, sauces, and fermented goods to enhance every meal and make every dining experience homemade. She wakes up well before sunrise and uses time as her specialty ingredient— allowing her bread to rise, sauces to marinate, and flavors to infuse. Your meals on board will both excite you and nourish you. Elise’s dishes are exquisite; some of them can be found on her Instagram page, @galley_of_Elise.

Additionally, Elise is as comfortable at the helm as in running the galley: she holds a 200gt Master of Yachts Unlimited ticket, which includes celestial navigation— please ask her about constellations!

Reviews for Excess with previous crew:

We had an absolutely PERFECT trip. We could not have imagined anything better. Captain Dan was amazing. He was professional, made us feel safe and suggested a great itinerary based on our requests. We did everything on our list and more. He made extra efforts to make sure we were having a great time and to get us to destinations so we could enjoy. He has a great personality and was very welcoming. He organized island transportation and provided a great experience at each location. We made a request to watch an NFL playoff game while on the boat. He went to every effort to make that happen. He made reservations for us at SABA rock bar to watch it there and was able to get the game projected on the boat so we could finish watching while eating dinner. Very impressed with him.

Chef Vanessa prepared delicious meals that exceeded our expectations. She catered to several dietary requests of our group and succeeded in making everything delicious. She had coffee waiting for us in the morning. She prepared healthy and delicious meals and included local fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables. She was very professional and readily available if we had any requests.

The yacht was in pristine condition. It was clean and well kept. The tender, paddle boards, and floating dock were also in pristine condition. Snorkel gear was able to be fitted to each person and was very clean. Towels and sunscreen were always readily available.

Melody D, aboard Catamaran Excess January 2023  sailing the British Virgin Islands

Our charter trip on Excess with Ben & Michelle was amazing. I don't think I could have made a better choice on a catamaran selection! The boat was spotless and well ventilated and air conditioned. From the moment we stepped on Excess to the time we left, Ben & Michelle were awesome.

We called Ben the "Indiana Jones" of the ocean! He was up for anything from taking us snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking and exploring to finding a beautiful, quiet cove to just kick back and relax, swim and read. My son caught live lobster on his dives with Ben and he prepared them fresh on the boat for us!

Michelle's cooking was exemplary. Fresh, beautifully presented and healthy!

Ben & Michelle are such easy going, fun and down to earth people which made it so easy for our family to settle right in and relax. They made it fun and adventurous for our 4 children ages 16-23.

Excess is a beautiful catamaran with a spacious master suite and plenty of room for our family of 6 to spread out and enjoy some alone time.

The quality family time that we experienced was the best part of our week. Hands down, our best family vacation ever with the most beautiful catamaran and the greatest crew in the Caribbean!
