Meet Starlight’s Crew: Captain Toby, Chef Will and First Mate, Bamboo!
Captains Toby Stull and Will Bishop, along with the Boat Dog Bamboo, work in unison to create a fun, safe and unique sailing experience. Partners, the two have sailed together for many years between New England and the Caribbean, are passionate about sailing, and have over 20-years combined charter experience. They pride themselves on tailoring every charter to suit each guest’s desires. Whether onboard for a day in Sag Harbor or for two weeks in the Caribbean, Will and Toby truly believe their first mission is to make your sailing dreams come true.
Captain Toby Stull has sailed his entire life. He holds a USCG Master Captain License and several American Sailing Association Instructor certifications. He was on boats before he could walk. Toby has an intricate knowledge of waters surrounding Sag Harbor, as well as the Virgin Islands, allowing him to know exactly where the action is, where the activities are, and exactly where to bring guests who want to stay “off the track.” Captain Toby has also served on the board of directors for “Sailing Heals,” a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides cancer patients with a day of respite under sail and loves to share sailing with all.
Captain Will Bishop is also a life-long sailor. Since the age of 19, he has captained several luxury monohull charter yachts of many sizes in the Caribbean and New England. He has worked as a yacht manager, captain, and engineer aboard some of the world’s finest vessels. Beyond his sailing acumen, Will is an excellent cook who’s onboard prepared meals (Caribbean) and catering (Hamptons) are focused on balanced and healthy appealing combinations. He enjoys a varied cooking style incorporating every type of foods from latin to Asian, and everything in between. He has an acute understanding and love of locally grown fare.
Bamboo is a small St. John ‘Coconut Retriever’ who was originally a Puerto Rican street dog (Sato). She is 6-years old and has been aboard for nearly two years. She is friendly, yet unobtrusive, and is the favorite part of the vacation to many guests.
Bamboo is easy to get along with and is both friendly and keeps to herself. She likes to sit behind the helm and give orders under sail and watch the activity from her perch atop the cabin while at anchor.

Sailing the USVI and BVI has been the dream vacation that we saved for my 40th birthday. We were beyond nervous about picking the right captain and the right boat as we could not imagine a week aboard with the wrong choice . The captain, Toby and crew, Will, were HIGHLY knowledgeable and professional but at the same time so naturally flexible, easygoing and fun to be around. Their immense knowledge of the islands and other boats in the area was absolutely impressive and in hind sight, imperative. They knew the ins and out of of every island, the timing to visit each island , every restaurant to go to for dinner and every MUST DO experience that we didn’t even know that we wanted to do. The boat, Starlight, is stunning, clean , spacious and well appointed. The main cabin provided the deepest sleep that I desperately needed (mom of two). The breakfasts/ lunches and cocktails aboard were plentiful and delicious. They covered more than you can imagine in a week, had the gear that we needed and came on adventures to keep us safe while at the same time ensuring your privacy and romantic alone time. Daily operations of the boat were done seamlessly and safely and every anticipated need, including a serious food allergy was handled almost magically.
This double Birthday/ Valentines Day trip was an adventurous, relaxing and romantic week long cruise for two, executed with class, professionalism and easygoing fun. We will be returning without a doubt as we are forever ruined and can no longer imagine just sitting at a resort for a week. Thank you so much Toby, Will and Bamboo for a life changing first days of 40!! ~ Lori and Jay, Montauk NY
Outstanding in Every Way
My wife and I just spent 2 weeks sailing on Starlight in the Virgin Islands with Toby; it was outstanding in every way. The boat was comfortable, sailed well, was a joy to live aboard, a true classic yacht.
Captain Toby knows his boat and the American and British Virgin Islands very well, is professional, personable, and completely dependable, a rare combination especially on a boat. ~Jan and Kitty, Santa Fe, NM
Loved Our Time Aboard!
So, my friend and I planned a rather last-minute trip to the Virgin Islands for peak winter season, figuring it would be no problem to get hotels. Well, we quickly realized just how stupid we were, until I unearthed Captain Toby and the beautiful Starlight, after which we could not have counted ourselves any more fortunate. We booked a 4-day sail through the BVI, and it was by far the highlight of the trip. The ship was gorgeous, comfortable and well-maintained.
Captain Toby could not have been a better companion – experienced, easy-going, flexible, and fun. I had looked into bareboat chartering in this area, and this was by far the best deal I found. Not only did prices include breakfast, lunch, gas, and insurance, but we paid for 3 nights on board and Toby gave us basically four full days, even dropping us off on another island so we wouldn’t have to take any ferries, despite that fact that he really did not have to do that. We both LOVED our time aboard Starlight, and I honestly cannot wait to book and come aboard again. Thanks so much, Toby. Say hey to Bamboo! ~ Katie and Ivana, Bklyn NY
