Top Shelf feels like a new boat! She had very little running time before the present owner purchased her. The purchase was followed by a refit featuring new paint, new decking and flooring, new soft furnishings, plus beautifully built and designed new cabinetry.


Crew Information

Captain: Edin Mudjanovic

Captain: Edin Mudjanovic

Captain Edin, “Ed,” thrives off of sharing his lens of the world from Top Shelf as an interactive playground with white sand beaches waiting to be touched and glistening blue water with the best secrets yet to be discovered. Ed was originally born in Heidelberg, Germany with Croatian and Bosnian Heritage. Always driven towards activity, he spent a lot of his childhood in Pacific Northwest, the epicenter for outdoor enthusiasts. When he’s not out on the water, Ed also enjoys hiking, biking, snowboarding, and fishing.

It was also early in life that Ed was exposed to the world of yachting. Falling in love with travel and the idea of sharing incredible experiences with others, it was undeniable that yachting was his destiny. Driven to make this his career path, Ed made it his mission to balance his college education, receiving his Bachelor of Business Administration from Gonzaga University, while also working on yachts in the Mediterranean.

Post college graduation, Ed has been active in working on charter yachts full-time for the past four years. The Bahamas are his dream location that he is happy to call home. It is a place where he feels like he’s on another planet with sparse populations and long sandy beaches, yet just an easy flight or cruise from civilization. Achieving his 200 ton Masters License, and 500 ton Near Coastal credentials, Ed’s safe and adventurous spirit are the ideal combination on board Top Shelf. You can find him entertaining guests with fishing and an assortment of watersports. As a Captain who has been a dedicated deckhand, Ed is extremely hands on in assisting the crew to provide guests the perfect blend of luxury service and activity.

Chef: Joel Ehrich

Chef Joel could not have imagined a better twist to his culinary career than when he discovered the magic he could concoct on board a charter yacht. As the former Chef de Cuisine at the iconic Absinthe Brasserie & Bar and Bellota, Joel has played an integral part within The Absinthe Group for several years.

His prior culinary career took him from his home in Fort Lauderdale, to studying at the College of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University, and even out to California where he sharpened his skills, progressing his way up to sous chef at a variety of well renowned Napa Valley restaurants including Philippe Jeanty’s Michelin-starred Bistro Jeanty. Returning back to his home in Florida, he rounded out his skill set managing two “sister restaurants” featuring global cuisine with highlights of Italian classics and Asian fusion.

Joel’s favorite part of the culinary arts is guiding guests through a timeless culinary experience. He is motivated to seek the freshest ingredients, creating food that is easily identifiable and presented in a way that is unimaginable. His palate and personal favorite dishes are constantly evolving as diverse, cultural cuisines intrigue him.

In his spare time, Joel enjoys experimenting with home farming and fermenting, and remaining active with jiu jitsu as well as a wide variety of outdoor activities. There is nothing more fulfilling to Joel than sharing his passion for exploring on multiple levels. He loves to see guests light up the beautiful sights of the Bahamas, and equally delight at the adventure that awaits on every plate!

Mate: Marcos I. Padilla Trujillo

With the beach essentially at the doorstep of his home in Puerto Rico, Marcos naturally found his way to life on the sea. Considering himself a merman in another life, yachting became the ideal gateway for Marcos to explore the sea, inspiring curiosity of each guest, and providing a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Marcos also has a knack for entertainment and the arts, adding a fun and playful pizzaz to life on board Top Shelf. He dedicated his college career to studying Production and Theater as well as Psychology, and is a Drama Club enthusiast. His show now involves sharing all of the wonders that the Bahamas have to offer and even creating unique “theme nights” for guests.

On shore back in Puerto Rico, Marcos previously worked as a Manager of a Luxury Guest House and a Producer at a Drag Club. He was introduced to the world of yachting through his partner and quickly was motivated to move to Fort Lauderdale where he began his career as a Steward.

Marcos is constantly mesmerized by the clear waters, privacy, and soothing relaxation that can be found in the Bahamas, especially at his favorite hideaway, Chub Cay. When he’s not in the water or putting on a fun show, Marcos enjoys anything from engaging in sports like volleyball, rollerskating, and hiking, to the simplicity of reading a nice book and spending quality time with friends. He reflects this balance in his own life to guests by adapting to providing the experience each guest is seeking.

Truly a Top Shelf Experience for my Top Producers!
Captain Mario and the entire crew were awesome! I took my top producers out for the full day experience and they are still going on and on about it ! We had an absolute blast . Everything was perfect from the pristine condition of the boat and attention to detail to the food, drinks, music and all the water toys you need. This yacht has something for everyone. Whether you want to just chill in the shade and stare out at the water, lay in the sun on the sun deck , or take a break inside in the luxurious cabin in the air conditioning , you cannot beat it. We will definitely be back and think we have found our new annual tradition!

An Awesome Experience
We chartered Top Shelf with four other couples for a full day including lunch and dinner. The yacht is absolutely luxurious and beautifully appointed. Captain Mario, Mate Brian, Chef Nicole, and other crew members Karla and Sophia are very personable and provided an unsurpassed level of service. It's hard to believe they had only worked as a team for several weeks.

Chef Nicole's culinary preparations were delectable and copious.

Several of us used water toys — jet boat and Sea-Doo. Wow!! Brian makes the jet boat fly across the water.

Without reservation, we highly recommend this yacht charter to anyone looking for an exceptional, high end experience at sea.

A much needed HIGH END Experience for the Hilton Head Area
Had the opportunity to experience the Top Shelf a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. The accommodations and layout of the vessel lends to a perfect setting for a group of up to 20-25 guests. With multi decks and sitting areas the yacht is spectacular. The food and beverage experience was top notch. For those looking for a first class luxury experience for their group this is a much needed experience for the Hilton Head area.
Impressive Experience
A unique and luxurious way to experience the natural beauty of Hilton Head Island! We enjoyed an evening cruise with amazing food, drinks, and staff. We enjoyed seeing dolphins and taking in the sights such as the Harbour Town lighthouse. This vessel is a showstopper, for sure, and you will not regret getting to spend time here. A truly impressive way to entertain and gather.
My husband and had the opportunity to attend a private event at this luxurious "yacht" and it was an amazing experience. The boat is gorgeous! It is very spacious, with several cabins, sitting areas both indoor and outdoor, and the crew was fantastic. Very attentive to everything we needed. Food and drinks were also plentiful, and of course the best of the best!. I loved the fact that we could walk around the boat and experience the coast of Hilton Head Island from the water perspective. It is such a completely different view. Being a local for 20 years, one never gets tired of the waters around Hilton Head, and this yacht offers that opportunity in an exclusive and sophisticated way. Great experience and one that you cannot miss!!!
The boat is amazing! So luxurious. The crew was very friendly and helpful. The food and drinks were wonderful! Can’t wait to go again!
