Cover Letter


Please allow me to introduce ourselves. My name is JT Gabriel and my wife is Debi Olshein-Gabriel. We are 39 and 44 years of age. We have been on the water all of our lives and in the yachting industry for the past 17 years as professional crew. We have taken vessels all over Central America, the Caribbean and Canada. We have been employed on large sport fishing and motor yachts. We are very interested in the captain & chef/stew team position that you currently have available. We are currently running a 106 Westship motor yacht in the Miami area. We are very experienced on private vessels, as well as luxury charters.

We are very hands on when it comes to maintenance and trouble shooting. We have repaired everything from electric and hydraulic bow thrusters, hydraulic and electric windlass units, starters, reverse osmosis systems, A/C chillers/handlers and generators. We have performed complete refits on navigational electronics, interiors, exteriors, generators and main engines on many of the vessels that we have been employed on. I prefer not to outsource people to perform routine maintenance and other tasks to insure that they are fixed and maintained correctly, so that we have a piece of mind and satisfaction for the future.

We have a very strong work ethic and strive to assure every guest departs relaxed and one hundred percent fulfilled, with all of their goals met for their vacation itinerary. We are both physically fit and very active. We enjoy every aspect of living and working together onboard a vessel, whether we are at our home dock, or cruising around the World. We enjoy free diving, spear fishing, fishing(blue water and the flats) , but most of all, we just enjoy our time on the water. We look forward to speaking with you further regarding the position. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. We are currently located in Miami. Please find our combined resume below.

Kind regards,

Capt. JT Gabriel & Debi Olshein-Gabriel
