Captain: Ryan Adelmann
Ryan was introduced to sailing at the young age of 8. Raised in Minnesota, he learned the finer points of sailing on the numerous lakes and rivers, including the Great Lakes. By his late adolescent years, he had sailed the Florida Keys, Bahamian Islands and had spent many months off the N.E. coast, fine tuning his passion for the sea. Though life guided him through many ventures including a prosperous run in semiconductor manufacturing and real estate investing; the “Pirate” in Ryan hailed strong!
He found himself engulfed in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean and the USVI/BVI waters in 2007. He honed his sailing skills by delivering yachts to/from the Virgin Islands to the States. He yearned to take on new waters and sailed further south to St. Lucia, St. Vincent, the Grenadines and Grenada, but Ryan has always found his home to be in these Lesser Antilles waters. His love of BVI and USVI shows as his vast knowledge and passion flow from him as you are enchantingly guided through the blissful calm waters.
Holding a 100GT Master USCG Mariner’s Credential along with STCW (International Standard of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for seafarers), Auxiliary Sail endorsement, BVI Boatmaster endorsement , he is also safety trained and certified in CPR, First Aid, AED and Child CPR. Ryan’s numerous land-based safety credentials have translated easily as he learned to “breathe” underwater as a PADI SCUBA certified diver.
Ryan’s quick wit, plethora of bad jokes and charm have earned him a reputation second to NONE. His famous signature quote, as you’ll happily fall influence to, “Buy the ticket, take the ride!” will follow you home to your own next adventures.
Stephanie comes from Memphis, Tennessee – As with all mermaids, her timeline is mysterious. As a young woman, Stephanie found herself being pulled to something-somewhere. As an only child she laid her own tracks and set her own sails. Luckily for us, Stephanie chose a path through the warm waters of the Caribbean. She set her compass early on for the slow paced, simple life of island living and found her ‘forever harbor’ in St. Thomas in 1998.
Her time on island has laid many entrepreneurial avenues such as opening an upscale boutique, bar/restaurant & Good-Time Guru. Throughout her adventures, she discovered her passion for the tranquil blue waters surrounding the Virgin Islands and beyond.
Starting from the bottom and moving up, Stephanie acted a muse to captains of large capacity day boats, as well as, crew for mega yachts owned by astute, nameless persons of fame and fortune. Her life on boats offered her a way to express herself in the galley and as she works to ensure you have a memorable and fantastic vacation.
With her sweet southern charm, Stephanie strives to give you an experience to never be forgotten. Her passion for pleasing is apparent once board, whether she is “mermaiding” her way through the waters to show you the beautiful aquatic life or when you set at her table and she presents your specially considered meals, she shines with enthusiasm and joy. Humble as she may be, Stephanie puts together simple meals in extraordinary fashion.
Stephanie and Captain Ryan have found a partnership aboard that sets them worlds apart from others, working in perfect harmony as Captain and Crew. They are also loving partners in life, working and living their dream.
Stephanie is certified in STCW; Personal Safety, Survival, Social Responsibilities and CPR. She holds her Advanced Open Water SCUBA certification. In her downtime loves to hike the many trails of the Virgin Islands, beach comb for unique shells, and simply relax in her island home, swaying in the breeze in her hammock, reading or just enjoying mother nature at her finest.

6. Additional comments on your charter?
This trip exceeded any and all expectations. Can't say enough about our new friends Ryan and Steph. They made all our dreams come true with this trip. It was most relaxed and fun trip any of us had ever had. The scenery, the food and drinks, snorkeling, shopping, sailing and all the great floating toys on the boat were spectacular. It was a trip we will remember for a lifetime!!!!
I don’t know which of you is more lucky to have the other. The highlight of our week has been you guys and your fabulous sense of humor. You have an uncanny ability to give us exactly what we want, both giving us space and being there, for laughs, for cocktails, for snacks, and constantly offering entertainment options. Steph, everyone raves about your food, and it is heavenly good. If you forced me to pick favorites, it would be the evening fish dishes, and the massive breakfasts that were perfect after an hour of wobbly dawn yoga on deck, an early morning snorkel, and plenty of coffee. BTW that coffee was always there and freshly brewed no matter what ridiculously early time I got up. I couldn’t beat Ryan out of bed, even once, although Liz managed it, but only on day one, getting up at 3:30am she was so determined not to miss a minute of vacation.
Steph, I loved our land hikes to get the views, and seeing you sweat like crazy and assure me that you loved climbing hills too, while downing gatorade. Ryan, you showed us beautiful cove after beautiful cove, and stunning sunset after stunning sunset. You gave me my first taste of tubing, and it was a blast! There was no way I was flying off that thing, although you tried hard, and I swallowed half the ocean laughing. Andrew got his first taste of paddle-boarding (I have the hilarious video to prove it). It was no mill-pond, we had a big-swell week, and he wisely decided to stick to the kayak to explore the places you took us, but Liz went out most days (an experienced paddle-boarder and she could handle the chop). Thank you for towing the kayak out to the very windy tip of Magens bay, so we had the perfect easy kayak back, going with the wind, watching the turtles surface, and nosying some of the most beautiful houses on Saint Thomas. Thank you for paying attention to our safety at all times, and racing across the bay to look for us when you thought we’d gone astray (we hadn’t, a false-alarm, we were having fun kayaking the coves, seeing goats play, and were just out of sight behind the massive boat, Felix).
I’m the first to fall off Felicia, but apparently not the first to accidentally dump technology overboard. Thank you for rescuing my GoPro when I dropped it in the dark, minus its floatie bubble case. Thank you for tolerating our (slightly drunken) whim to night snorkel, inspired by the underwater flashlight/GoPro incident, and wisely advising how to do it safely (noodles and buddies), and then killing the boat lights and blasting out the Jaws theme-tune as we swam back (OMG we laughed!).
Thank you for tirelessly hunting lobster with William (yum, the sashimi appetizer Steph created from it was delicious!). Thank you for filling your tiny freezer with his bait, and zipping along at plenty of knots so he could fish off the back of the boat. I loved when we had both sails up, the noise of the boat whooshing through the water, and we flew across to Buck Island, where I got those gorgeous turtle photos. Thank you for cleaning up after us, constantly, and the miraculously appearing towels, just when we needed them. You keep the yacht spotless, there are so many different places to chill, the cabins are beautiful, the water is hot, the beds are comfy, and the closet space surprisingly large (who knew there were drawers under the beds, and the bathrooms have six shelves). The evidence of how much fun we had is captured in so many photos of so many memories that we will treasure, and you Captain Ryan and First Mate Stephanie, are right there, starring in tons of them. Thank you. Jane.
Dear Ryan and Steph, thanks for such a beautiful and relaxing cruise. We will have wonderful memories of our time with you and all the cool destinations we arrived at each evening. The food was fabulous Steph! Thanks for all your efforts. We hope to do this again sometime. We wish you both many blessings always. Love, Peggy and Dave
Best ship crew ever!! Words cannot express how wonderful you both have been. You have made our trip an experience to remember! You catered to our every need. You were both so professional yet personable. You made us feel at home on the rapscallion. You took us to such magical places – the West Cay being my favorite.
Stephanie- you are an awesome chef! Every meal was splendid. Ryan- thanks for being my snorkel buddy! My only regret is that we didn’t get those three lobsters we tried for. We could not have had a better trip… Thanks to the two of you-thanks for making it so memorable! Please keep in touch, all the best Carol and Don
Thank you for the most amazing week, fabulous food, and great adventures. We'll never forget the week that Will turned 40!! Just a few of our favorite memories on Rapscallion:
*Desserts!! Birthday cake, key lime pie, and cheesecake YUMMY!
*Drinking 7 cases of Ultra when we only ordered 5
*Our girl Felicia (The Unicorn)
*Snorkeling with the turtles(from the play-pad)
*Magen's Bay tow home from beach
*Shopping with Steph
*Teaching you the 'Booty Song'- Captain booty, cooking booty, dripping booty,....
*And who could forget Matt's elevator?!?!
There are so many more memories that we will hold dear from our trip! We hope to do this trip again and maybe get to see the BVI. Wishing you both the best on all your adventures ahead on Rapscallion!!

Steph.... what amazing food, snorkeling tours and catering to our every need. Most importantly we have made friends with 2 amazing people.

From the moment we stepped foot on the yacht we left the world behind..... When asked about sailing, Ryan’s grin was a sign of what the next 8 days would hold. He went from expert sailor, to fishing guide, to dive buddy, scooter leader, master griller, pro snorkeler, history teacher, and dance moves that stop fish from swimming just to watch. Maybe his best move ever though, was finding Stephanie to be his mate. No sea too rocky for our little spider-monkey to keep our drinks full, and our giggles endless. She delighted us with 5-star meals, made with 5-star love. She makes mooring the boat look as effortless as her mouthwatering desserts... Words cannot express our gratitude to Ryan and and Steph for making this experience as beautiful as the surroundings blue sea. Best of all, are the memories we now hold near and dear to our hearts, and the new friendships that will span for years to come. Thank You for an adventure of a lifetime!!
