About Five Star Charters I launched Five Star Charters Grand Cayman in May 2018. We are a private luxury charter business that provides half and full-day cruises on our 48’ Sea Ray Sundancer cruiser. The business is doing exceptionally well as I have aggressively marketed it. We are looking for a new First Mate to join our team. The position could be short-term for the summer or potentially long-term if it turns out to be a good fit. I am looking to bring someone on as soon as possible.
