Born in Santa Clara, Cuba, near the fishing village of Caibarien, which is famous for its stone crabs and prolific sea life. Perhaps it is no wonder that from an early age and later upon moving to South Florida in the 60’s, I have always had a passion for the sea, whether fishing, diving, tinkering with boats or simply being on the water.
After a few years working in the Port of Miami as a shipping agent, in 1989 I turned my attention to my first love, the ocean, and thus began a career selling boats that continues to this day.
Along the way I extensively cruised the waters of the Florida Keys, East Coast of the United States, Bahamas, Exumas, Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, amassing a wealth of knowledge in the logistics of successful yacht ownership and the necessary contacts throughout the region. These experiences and relationships ensure that my clients have an unforgettable yachting experience no matter what waters they cruise.
This is why I call myself a ‘Yacht Concierge’ – never someone who simply sells you a boat and then disappears once the transaction is over. My clients feel they have a friend in the business.
From the very beginning, you can expect detailed attention, transparency and the knowledge to guide you towards the right yacht for your needs. A seamless transaction where your interests always come first and continued support after the sale, such as ongoing training as needed, recommendations regarding where to keep your vessel, how to maintain it, when and how to employ crew, shipping, cruising plans or any emergency that may arise.
My most proud accomplishment in the industry is the relationships I have formed with my clients over the years in many places around the world. These clients span two generations of boaters, often from the same family. I deeply value the continued support and trust of my ‘yachting family’.
