Monohull Drumbeat 1 Crew- 72 feet
Owners Capt. Vince Stracener and Chef/Mate/Wife Linda Stracener Crew
We have known this crew and boat since 1993. Tried and true. They do it all so very well.
Owners Vince and Linda Stracener have a passion for sailing and a commitment to excellence. The beauty of the ocean will be shared through their stories and lived through experience. Captain Vince holds a US Coast Guard 100-ton Master’s license and is a Certified Dive Instructor. He has sailed the waters here since 1993. Vince enjoys sharing his enthusiasm for diving, fishing, and underwater photography with his guests.
Linda, Chef/First Mate, moved to the Virgin Islands from her home state of California, where she graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Marketing. She was voted “Helmsman of the Year” at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club. Her culinary history is filled with awards and it abounds with cuisine to be remembered forever. Her specialties include Caribbean dishes, upscale Continental and seafood. She has been a charter yacht chef since moving to the Islands in 1994. First-mate KirkPersidskis is from Detroit, Michigan. He has been with DRUMBEAT I since 1999. Known as the “blender king” he will serve up libations like no other mate in the Caribbean. We have been their “neighbors” on our mooring for many years.
