Captain- Paul Stengel

At a very early age I was drawn to the Marine Industry & driving boats. However before entering this profession, I served in the U.S. Army and was a Police Officer while still continuing to operate boats every chance I could. At 25, I obtained my 100 ton license. From then on I have continued to educate myself, traveling the oceans, while still taking care of my responsibilities as a father to Nicholas and Nicholl.
I married my childhood sweetheart at age 20. This year we will be celebrating out 39th year of marriage. I enjoy fishing and seeing new places. When not on board you will find me hanging out in my back yard. A “Man Cave” for neighbors and friends to stop by and have something to eat, drink while taking a dip in the pool. All are welcome!!! Note from Professional Colleague:
Over the years Captain Paul is known for his ability to mentor young men and women as well as maintain a professional ship and meet the needs of both owners and charter guests. His training on ships procedures, safety, day to day operation, finances, is to be admired.
Through his passion for the sea he knows the importance in keeping his guests safe while still creating an extraordinary experience while on board. Paul has cruised the entire East Coast of the USA and Chesapeake, Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico, Panama Canal all the way to Tahiti, and of course the Mediterranean.

I was born in West Virginia but moved to New Jersey at age 7, where I met Paul to whom I married the love of my life and had 2 children, Not knowing much about the sea and all it had to offer was a new adventure for me.

Enjoying this amazing company, I worked my way up the corporate ladder, becoming a Sales Director earning 5 Career Cars and succeeded in placing on the National Court of Sales times! Along with the Princess Court 6 times! My highlight was meeting the founder of that company Mary Kay Ash. Her passion for mentoring young women has been a driving force in who she is as well as sharing her faith.

I also taught Sunday school for 15 years while serving as a Trustee at my church, singing in the choir and sitting on the Adult Education and Children Education Committees. During that time Paul and I were involved in Youth Exchange through the Rotary Club to which he was a member, We have hosted 6 kids from France, Sweden, Ecuador, and Brazil.

As a family we also enjoy fishing in new places, my love for God and family are what I value most.
