Sail Boat


From Here to There

Sometimes your boat is HERE and it needs to be THERE.  I can help.  A USCG Master, I can get your boat where it needs to be safely and on time.

It needs doing, and needs to be done right!

If your boat needs one or more major projects and you do not have the time, or the expertise, to deal with the various contractors involved, I can help.
Watching costs, schedule, and quality is a full time job. Have an expert on your side.



Back to New

A quality refit can be a major investment of time and money, but it will bring all of the boat's systems to the high level of reliability needed for an extended, trouble free, cruise.

There are various levels of refit that can be implemented depending on the client's needs, wallet, and cruising plans.

Expert Guidance

Buying a boat is a huge investment, and having an experienced guide who only has your interests at heart is a huge help. No boat is right for everybody, and we know we have to first learn from YOU what kind of boat is right for you.
The earlier you get us involved, the more time and money we can save you!



What you need to know.

With years of experience, I have the capabilities and expertise to take your sailing to the next level.  I combine my insights and skills to help you reach whatever long or short range cruising goals you have.
I take pride in my client's success.

Reliability, Functionality, Safety
