Bluenose Yacht Sales


Francis Shiman-Hackett​

Sales Partner

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 to an 80′ Maxi. I have raced throughout the US and Caribbean as navigator, helmsman, and trimmer for Newport-Bermuda, Chicago-Mac, and hundreds of coastal distance races. I deliver racing boats, cruisers, and powerboats year round, both locally and offshore with my Yachtmaster Offshore 200 ton and USCG 100 ton Master license. I have taught live aboard cruising classes for over a decade. Let me use my experience to find the boat that best meets your sailing needs and goals.
