Ultra Crew Profile
Captain Kyle Foglesong
For as long as Kyle can remember, he has longed to live on the sea. To answer the call of the ocean, he and Chef Jessica decided to move to Florida about 9 years ago. Eager to learn about all things boating, he spent every free moment on the nearest available vessel including sailboats, charter yachts, fishing boats, pontoons, and jet skis. During this time, Kyle earned his USCG Master Captain 200 GT license and became an expert in boat maintenance and guest safety.
Kyle´s fun-loving spirit and easy-going personality are contagious onboard and charter guests often leave his boat with not only an experience of a lifetime and promises to return, but with a genuine new friend. He prides himself on keeping the boat in tip-top shape while ensuring that guests are enjoying the vacation of their dreams. Kyle is truly a jack of all trades and you can find him in the engine room keeping everything running smoothly, guiding guests on snorkel trips, hikes, and watersports, or at the bar crafting up a delicious round of homemade cocktails.
Chef Jessica Dillow
Jessica believes that true happiness is a mindset promoted by surrounding yourself with good people, beautiful scenery, and delicious food. Raised in a family full of phenomenal chefs, Jessica has been cooking since she was tall enough to see over the stove. She is passionate about using locally sourced, fresh ingredients, and bold flavors to create mouthwatering dishes tailored to guests´ preferences. Jessica pours herself into the creation of each dish she serves and shares “the most important ingredient in anything that leaves my galley is the joy I feel when cooking and the genuine care and love I have for the person about to experience my craft.”
Jessica often refers to herself as a professional student with an insurmountable hunger to learn. In addition to her culinary training, Jessica has received bachelor´s degrees in Premedical Biology and Psychology, attended medical school, and received her master´s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. As a licensed therapist, Jessica works with families, couples, and children to realize their overall mental wellness goals. She is also an adjunct faculty member at a Florida State College and teaches several online counseling and psychology courses. When asked about her diverse background, Jessica says “I made a decision long ago to do what I love. I love food, being on the ocean, helping people, and teaching - so that´s what I do!”
Kyle and Jessica were both born and raised in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Virginia and they carry their Southern charm, hospitality, and graciousness like a badge of honor. Like a cliché teenage romance movie, their love story started over 16 years ago in high school as the captains of the football team and cheerleading squad - they have been inseparable ever since.
Being in and on the water is a major part of their 16-year relationship and they love sharing their passions for the ocean, boating, food, and Caribbean island life with their guests. Both Kyle and Jessica are guest- focused, detail-oriented, and have extremely high standards for their own performance. While guest safety and the well-being of the vessel are always top priority, Kyle and Jessica know that a successful charter boat relies on a crew with a positive, optimistic, and resourceful mindset.

Ultra Guest Reviews
Hi! We just returned from a week, January 25 -2/1, on the Ultra with Vince & Linda Stracener.
It was a trip of a lifetime! We can not ‘brag’ enough about their expertise in their jobs.
Vince was an experienced captain & informative & entertaining.
Linda’s meals were always beautifully displayed and every, meal (or snack) was excellent.
Both are true professionals! They are a beautiful couple!
We were all, apprehensive, about a week on a boat, the boat ,the crew, food??
The boat & crew where truly beyond our expectations!
We would highly recommend the Ultra & Vince & Linda to anyone wanting a trip of a lifetime!

Had a great trip cruising BVI on Ultra. Vince and Linda were outstanding in taking care of us. The boat had plenty of room and comfort for 6 of us. The food was excellent. Would definitely do this trip again on Ultra with Vince and Linda.
New Years 2018/19
ULTRA is a great boat. Fast from place to place, great layout. Very stable at anchor (who knew a mast raised the center of gravity?). Flybridge is a definite plus - as are the wide open views and extra deck space of the power cat. After years of sailing cats, I’m a convert.
Vince is a fantastic captain and a good man. Very flexible, even keeled and always looking for ways to facilitate our good times - dinghy driving, drone flying, beach landing or whatever we needed, he was quick to anticipate. I enjoyed spending time with him. One of our guests broke her clavicle on Anegada and Vince was calm and cool as he zipped us over to Tortola, adjusted our route plan and made sure we barely missed a beat.
Linda’s meals were the best we’ve had on charter. Her menu has a ton of variety and each meal really fit the day and the time. We had a gluten free passenger - and Linda creatively adjusted each meal so there was no ‘drop off’. We had five under 22’s on our charter, plus a red-eye and four hour time change to kick things off, so getting everybody to the table in the morning was a bit of a challenge. Linda was super flexible (which we really appreciated) and made us all feel well taken care of. The evening sundowners added just the right touch each day.
Vince and Linda had a mate on board - Jordan - who was fun and added a nice twist to the group. What I didn’t appreciate beforehand was how much having a third person helps everything go smoothly (and gives Linda the time/space to work her magic). Given our group size, I wish we’d had a third set of hands on prior trips. In makes a difference.
Note - This client has already re-booked Ultra for New Years 2019/20
What an amazing week! Boarding ULTRA for the first time was surreal. She is a beautiful, luxurious yacht, and we felt like royalty all week. There is so much room to spread out that the eight of us never felt confined. The cabins are roomy and comfortable and the salon was a cozy place for us to hang out and catch a couple of the World Cup games. We could not have asked for a better crew! They were ´there´ without being ´there´ while they worked, and joined us to play games, share music and laugh when we had some down time.
Vince is an experienced, competent captain, who made us feel instantly safe and secure in his abilities, knowledge of the area, and overall bad-assness. Linda´s meals were so amazing that none of us could believe she hadn´t gone to culinary school. The college kids bodies especially appreciated a week of wholesome, home-cooked meals! Kelsey is knowledgeable and fun, and all the kids fell a little bit in love with her. Vince, Linda and Kelsey ALL did an exemplary job of making us feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed. They knew what we wanted and needed before we did!
