After years of schoonering around the world I have been a service manager for several companies here in New England.  It has been said that I have commissioned and launched more Beneteau and Jeanneau new boats than anyone else in New England, but suffices to say I have probably commissioned more in the past ten years than anyone else.  When not managing my service team…READ MORE

I grew up boating on the coast of Maine where I spent my time prior to graduating from college as a sailing instructor at a local yacht club. I was an avid sailboat racer, and I also participated in several sailing regattas up and down the east coast. Upon graduation I moved to Annapolis Maryland where I began my career as a yacht broker specializing in blue water power and sailing vessels…READ MORE

Over 10 years ago I literally started at the bottom… painting bottoms that is. At that time I was unaware that this was not just a job, but a true vocation that would lead me to a service management role in just a few short years. I quickly realized that my passion for boats and yachting was only eclipsed by sharing that same joy with others. I have spent countless hours ensuring my clients…READ MORE

I have grown up yachting since the mid 1970’s and have been sailing around New England on my family’s boat since the age of four. Spending much of my summers sailing has given me a strong boating foundation from early on. While attending The University of Rhode Island, I was on the “Big Boat Team” crew and racing on Navy 44’s. I have held a Masters 100 Ton Aux Sail License since 1993….READ MORE

I’ve been obsessed with sailboats since I sailed a sunfish on a lake at age 8. I bought my first sailboat a 16′ Daysailor at age 12, and sold it to move up to an ODay 22 at 14. I lived aboard my MacWester 27 and Dufoir 35, And now live on land, but race and cruise my Kirie 37 throughout New England. I grew up racing 420s in Marblehead, MA, and continue to drive, navigate, and trim on everything from viper 640s…READ MORE

I fell in love with the sport as a boy sailing Long Island Sound on my family’s Snipe. At summer camp in Rhode Island, when other kids were shooting, swimming and water skiing, I was hanging out at the boat shed, offering to help and hoping for more time on the water.

My current passions include team racing and one design fleet racing in my Sonar. As president of the Sonar class…READ MORE

Steve Fischer, Sales Partner

I have been exploring the waters of New England since I was about three feet tall. Around 25 years ago, I was first introduced to sailing and it has since become the ruling passion of my life. Throughout my former career in advertising and marketing, I was fortunate to have close relationships with many New England boat builders. In creating awareness of their boats, I got an education in boatbuilding methods…READ MORE
