SEA SMOKE: A Morgan Yacht, SEA SMOKE was designed for Caribbean charter sailing. Fun, fast, beamy (wide) and stable, SEA SMOKE has a roomy and shaded cockpit as well as flush decks that are great for sunbathing. The transom ladder provides easy access in and out of the water, and along with a fresh water rinse, makes SEA SMOKE an ideal boat to snorkel and swim from. SEA SMOKE is available for extended (term) charters for a lucky couple.

Captain Charles Swaim & Leslie Jones
Captains Charles Swaim and Leslie Jones operate and maintain SEA SMOKE as if they owned her and they once did. As owner-operators of “PHAEDRUS”, they lived aboard for well over ten years and sailed over 30,000 sea miles.
Charles’ early interest in cooking and an opportunity to apprentice to an excellent continental chef set into motion a lifelong love of cooking and cuisine. A gypsy at heart, Charles was educated in Texas and received a degree in comparative philosophy. He took early retirement from an administrative position at the University of Oklahoma and pursued his dream to live and sail in the Caribbean. Charles holds a US Coast Guard 100 ton masters license and has for awhile (we think he once crewed for Columbus).
The operation of SEA SMOKE is shared by Leslie Jones. Leslie’s first home is central Oklahoma and where she received a degree in Business Administration. She left her job at an international lettering arts magazine to go with Charles to the Caribbean. She loves animals, nature and the sea and would be delighted to share what she has learned about the wildlife of the Caribbean.
