Crew

Crew Information

Captain: Wes Heinmiller

All crew are fully vaccinated against Covid and will Covid test 48 hours or less prior to charter.

Owner Operator Captain Wes Heinmiller is vastly experienced.

He is joined by a chef, and an optional 3rd crew member for larger groups. For Summer 2020 Wes and a Chef had smaller groups of 4 or less aboard, to Rave Reviews.

Captain Wes Heinmiller was born in Long Beach, California in 1954 to a boating family. When Wes was fifteen years old, he sailed to the Fiji Islands and resided there for two years with his family. He came back to Long Beach and started a marine repair, piloting & management company that is still in business today. Wes has worked in many aspects of the marine industry from sales to installation, and finally decided that yacht chartering is his forte. Wes piloted several boats for the motion picture and television industry: Riptide, Winds of War, Tequila Sunrise, Days of Our Lives, and The Bold & The Beautiful. Having a 1,600 ton Masters License with S.T.C.W. training, towing & sailing endorsements, Wes spends his time between his work in Newport Beach, CA and his residence on Orcas Island, WA. Wes’s marine capabilities are vast and his repair capabilities extensive. He has an excellent association with the Coast Guard from certifying four of his last boats. Wes has renovated nine Chris Crafts back from ruins in all sizes from 18′ Holiday speedboats to 65′ Coast Guard Certified Constellations & Commanders. He will guarantee a memorable trip.

Reviews

Seattle to the San Juan Islands, 6 nights, August 2020
USA family comments: "We loved everything about the trip. Captain Wes and Chef Derek were the perfect fit, as was Northern Light, for our family."
10 out of 10!
"I'm giving Wes, the boat and your company 10's across the board. We had a great time. Wes was very professional. The boat was very well kept for a yacht of its age. Your service was also outstanding. Thank you for making our experience such a good one."
Everything was wonderful
"Everything was wonderful. We can't wait to do it again."
A fine time in the San Juan Islands
"I spoke with the family and they were delighted with the yacht, crew, and area." - Charter Broker
"Quality is a rare thing." - Victor Wild
"Captain Wes, Jenn and Greg, Thank you for a week of quality in every way! We appreciate you."
10 out of 10!
"I would give this charter a 10. (This having been our first charter, I have no point of comparison, other than our prior vacations. This was definitely a 10 in comparison.)

Wes, Greg and Rachel were an exceptional crew. They worked very hard to deliver an outstanding trip. Very professional, yet kind and friendly. Wes is an excellent yachtsman. Safety was paramount, and we always knew we were in good hands. Our youngest daughter spent considerable time with Wes at the bridge, and learned much about the sea and boating. Greg's cooking was wonderful and we enjoyed his company. Rachel interacted beautifully with our family and took great care of us.

Northern Light was quite comfortable and she was spotless. Wes obviously takes great pride in her and keeps her in tip-top shape. Ventilation was never a problem.

We enjoyed the cuisine very much. Every meal was delightful.

We loved the area.

You were quite helpful in guiding us first-timers. I cannot think of anything more you could have done. We look forward to future charter adventures."
