Katie began her professional career as a deckhand on a 145ft tall ship in her late teens.

She knows how to recognize a well maintained and operated vessel and will ensure that her clients are matched with a yacht well-suited to their needs. Her departure from the onboard aspect of yachting naturally led Katie to the yacht brokerage side of the business where she now shares her wealth of knowledge with our customers who are searching for larger yachts to charter worldwide. Katie comments, “I enjoy working closely with my customers to find the perfect yacht in the destination of their dream, creating the ultimate experience”.
