C H E F - Michelle Hannemann (Foglesong) more

Michelle is known for her kind nature and positive outlook, in optimism there is magic” she often says.

Born on the Central East Coast of Florida, Michelle grew up with saltwater coursing through her veins. She spent the weekends cruising the waters of the intercoastal with her family who taught her all about boating, sea life and fishing. Although boating was the highlight of every week, she never imagined it one day becoming a part of her career.

Cooking also became a passion for Michelle at a young age. She spent every Christmas break in Pennsylvania with her Italian grandmother and great grandmother. This time spent was invaluable as she learned all about the foundation of her families’ secret recipes. Even now when I visit we still spend 80% of the time in the kitchen (the other 20% eating)”, Michelle says. She continues, It’s so great that I can now give my grandmother a rest; cooking for her and proving that I was paying close attention all these years.”

Michelle loves to cook with fresh herbs, vegetables and lean proteins. Her favorite challenge is turning something some consider boring into something magnificent! She loves experimenting with combinations of French and Asian flavors that send the taste buds spinning. Guests aboard Excess are in for a tasty experience that will be remembered long after their charter.

When not in the galley you can find Michelle leading snorkel excursions, planning memorable events for any occasion or shaking up delicious cocktails. Basically, anything to make chartering on Excess the vacation of a lifetime.

Crew's Dog - Marley

Marley is a 12yr old, very relaxed puggle. She has been chartering since November 2020 and guests love her!

Reviews for Excess with previous crew:

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!
