Meet the Crew

John & Shirelle

My name is John Crafford. I grew up in Cape Town South Africa. As a child I fell in love with the ocean surfing and sailing around Cape Town. After 11 years of having my own construction company I decided to follow my dreams and go sailing as a career. As a captain I have worked on sailing yachts and power boats from 11m to 30m. Even went to France to work on super yachts but could not get my sense of adventure satisfied until I started doing deliveries. Crossing the Atlantic a few times I got introduced to the Caribbean and chartering. I fell in love with the industry. In 2012 I started chartering from 11m to 30m yachts. My love for the ocean led me to become a PADI dive instructor. I met Shirelle as a suggestion as a new 1st mate and chef. I was not only blown away by her professionalism and culinary expertise but her warm, caring personality and love for life and the ocean also stole my heart.

My name is Shirelle Paris, I grew up in a small green town in Israel. I always loved nature. When I was 20 I started studying natural medicine therapy and moved to a small beautiful town on the beach full of surfers and sailors and started sailing. Since then I'm in love with the ocean. When I graduated from college I decides to go with my heart and went sailing in the Pacific ocean. I saw beautiful places and worked on different kinds of boats doing everything that needed doing like first mate, deckhand, cooking and hosting. I came to the Caribbean, to focus my career on what I really loved doing and I'm thankful for the opportunity. I love everything about the Caribbean and this is where I met John, my love and the most charming, considerate, knowledgeable, kind man and Captain I ever met. Cooking was always a natural thing for me. My mother is an amazing chef and she taught me how to cook from the day I was born. We used to invite a lot of guests and making meals a celebration of life and international culinary experience. For me cooking is art and a way to give love and joy to more

Broker's Lunch at the BVI Boat show, November 8th 2017
I would be so grateful if you would extend my thanks and appreciation to Bret and Mallory aboard SERENITY NOW for the lovely broker lunch they served at the BVI Charter show.

The meal was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Bret and Mallory are a sweet couple, and they keep the cat in excellent condition.

April 2017 Charter ~ Note from the Broker
I just got off the phone with the charterers who sang your praises so nicely I got goose bumps!
They called on speaker phone to tell me what a truly wonderful experience it was.

The best vacation, wonderful experience, educational, awesome, the itinerary, the diving - Bret you are an excellent dive instructor, Mallory you cooking was amazing and a true culinary experience. Amanda how nice you are and your always friendly smile, so pleasant and how you wouldnt let them lift a finger... How nice the boat was.
Mrs. said there were tears and hugs at the end and the only negative comment they had was that they are now fully depressed being off the boat.

Great trip!

The crews were top notch. They worked well together and all very accommodating.

We used a charter service, "fly the whale" for the transport to Staniel. The sea plane made it so easy.

Thanks so much for all the help!

Jan 8 2016
We all came on this trip with the same idea: to relax with our spouses and each other in this beautiful part of the world. We had no idea what to expect from the boat, the crew, the weather, etc. We could not have predicted how profoundly you (Bret, Mallory, Susie) have affected all of us this week and how grateful we are for the tremendous effort, talent, skill, and care you have given us. YOU have made this trip what we all wanted it to be and we could not have enjoyed it more. We all look forward to many more trips, as long as you all will be there.

Mallory, Chad, and Bret,
We had a fantastic week aboard the Tell Star. I have to say it was the most adventurous vaca ever. Between swimming & scuba with the sharks and hiking through mangroves, we managed to still have time to relax with the iguanas and drink the wine! We cant wait to hopefully see you all again next year.

Note from broker:
The guests had a fantastic time on board Tell Star. They said Mallory was amazing and they wanted to take her home with them. Thank you so much!

Guest poems:
I left my job, my duties, and my salary
To have a week of the most incredible food
All prepared by the beautiful Mallory.
I left my jeans, my make up, my jewelry and hair stylist
So I could be guided by the magnificent Tyler.
I left my apartment, my routine, my kids and my dad
So I could sail for a while with Captain Chad.
You made this vacation wonderful, never took us astray
Except for that one day stranded in Hatchet Bay.
But in all seriousness, from the bottom of my heart
Tell Star is amazing, the Bahamas are beautiful
Yet Mallory, Tyler, and Chad are the very best part!!!
Thank you,

Floating, sidelong glance at the
Joyous fiery sunrise passed
The hell hole of Hatchet Bay
We dream infinite leisure, sharks no
Matter, Chad and Tyler manage the sea
And our lofty expectations simultaneously
Whilst Mallory plies us with pure
Loving gastronomy & immaculate joy!
Mario & Susie

I eat all over the world, but I am never quite as happy as when I am basking on the Tellstar with Chef Mallory in charge of all things delicious. Chef Mal makes healthy tasty sexy food that makes the Tellstar and her kitchen one of my fave destinations in the world, wherever it floats .. as often as I can be there, I am there.

Wow! What an incredible experience this week! The TellStar crew made our 25th anniversary party unforgettable. The food, the water sports, the scenery, and the hospitality were far beyond our hopes and expectations. Thank you for such a fun time! We hope our paths cross again. Steve and Mary-Kay

It's hard to articulate our experience except to say perfect location, perfect yacht and most importantly perfect crew. Chad, Mallory and Tyler are so pleasant and so organized. They anticipated all of our needs and treated us better than any resort. We'll always remember our 25th anniversary in the BVI. The experiences and awesome food and drinks will fuel our stories to others for years. Thank you guys! Becky and Marty.

Feedback to broker:
Our trip couldn't have been any more fabulous. The crew made it more than special and we feel like we've made new friends!!! Their professionalism, knowledge, hospitality, and the amazing culinary expertise of Mallory were unsurpassed. And, of course ... the fun factor!!! Thank you for turning around a not so good situation and making it such a memorable and wonderful time for us! I will not hesitate to recommend my friends to you but bear in mind that they will want to sail with Tell Star!!!

Xmas charter 2014 BVI
Excerpts from letter written to boat owner:
I have two sons, 19 and 17. I wanted them to have a great time with tons of activities. I read about Chad, Tyler and Mallory and loved your boat so this seemed like a good fit. It was beyond my optimism. You have real live jewels with these guys! My son and Chad caught fish that was on the table an hour later prepared by Tyler. When we were in Anegada, Tyler brought delicious spiny lobster for dinner. He worked so hard, plus entertaining us. Chad is the consummate Captain. Very dedicated, and available for us to enjoy all of his ideas, vast travel experience and take us on water activities.

You know these men well, but I am so pleased that I want you to hear just how great they are onboard. Of course, they are both darlingas well as intelligent, educated and full of ideas. We are a very social threesome and they joined in with us. As a mom, I loved their participation because I was able to have some down time to myself.

Your boat was new, immaculate and sophisticated. We all thought it was the nicest one we had ever chartered. Thank you for making available the the best trip ever. We did not want to leave! Marcie

May 2014 (Broker comments)
When I spoke with my client he was still in vacation mode. He said they had such a fabulous time that it is hard to get back in the "work' mode. He sent me photos that the crew took and it seems like everyone was having fun! Dancing on the beach kept them entertained. They are happy with the trip and don't be surprised if they come back!
I can tell you they are all still basking in happiness!

9th Anniversary Charter 2014
Chad and Tyler's love of life and adventure is infectious and their epic experiences from around the world are positively inspiring. They were up for everything we desired and showed us plenty of phenomenal scenery and activities along the way, including teaching us an awesomely addictive beach game. Kayaking, snorkeling, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, paddle boarding, sailing - you name it, we did it - sometimes in combination! They are avid fisherman, so chances are high you'll savor some freshly caught seafood deliciously prepared by Ty.

Chad makes the best painkiller in the islands and a pretty mean margarita to boot, so watch out or you might end up jumping off the roof of Willie T's! We enjoyed swapping stories, relaxing, and most especially remembering what's truly significant in life.

We cannot thank these extraordinary brothers enough for making our 9th anniversary a genuinely incredible experience and we look forward to sharing adventures together again soon.

Reviews for John & Shirelle aboard previous yachts:

We had such an amazing trip. The boat is beautiful, and John and Shirelle were the most wonderful hosts. They made our trip fun, were knowledgeable and easy going about where we should go and what to do each day. Shirelle is such a talented cook. They were very flexible and helpful when deciding our route and always made sure we were well fed!

The yacht was beautiful. Very airy and well stocked with everything we needed. We loved the back seating area and upper deck seating areas.

The food was absolutely delicious. There was plenty of it, a wide variety each day and Shirelle was great with dietary requests.

Given this was our fifth charter we were pleased to try some new areas and snorkel spots. Everything was really great. We had a wonderful time.
