Welcome to Team Sail La Vie

Sound like clickbait? You’re right, maybe a little over the top, but we’re so excited about our new Flexboat SR 12 LX RIB that we wanted to make sure we had your attention. 

I’m Captain Stephanie Schuldt, and I’m on a journey of discovery and adventure with my best friend, Captain Cole Harrison. 

I started this journey after giving the corporate ladder a bit of a climb, only to decide it wasn’t for me. After ten years, I quit my job and moved down to the Florida Keys. I got my Captain’s  License and bought a 46-foot sailing catamaran. She’s named Sail La Vie, but I call her home.  I’m also a professional freedive instructor and even hold a world record for spearfishing. 

Along the way, some mutual friends introduced me to Cole. Cole grew up in the Keys as a  professional spearfishing guide and speargun builder. Like me, he also left a job behind to travel the world as a captain, guide, and cameraman. Most recently, he’s been in the South  Pacific, working on yachts and sailboats as well as the TV show Survivor.

Those that do know me, well they might describe me in the same way or maybe worse.
