“The Sea ... once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonders forever.” - Jacques Cousteau

Steve enjoys helping people that share his passion for the sea, to pursue their life’s dream of owning a yacht.

Steve grew up along the Manasquan River on the New Jersey shore. His first paying jobs were as a boatyard hand, and a mate on charter fishing boats. Steve raced on the varsity sailing team in college and earned a captains license at 20 years old. He has delivered boats from Massachusetts to Florida, the Bahamas, and U.S. Virgin Islands and participated in many offshore fishing tournaments for tuna and blue and white marlin.
