Captain Steve, originally from New York, has now been in sunny Florida for over 20 years after making the move to start his own boat repair business. Being a boater for most of his life, the transition to the yachting industry seemed like it was the natural thing to do. He has now been in yachting for nearly 30 years and still loves it as much as his first time on board.

He ensures that every charter runs smoothly from start to finish, with every detail being accounted for. He is a Captain with tons of knowledge to share and enjoys the company of guests in the Bridge while they sail.
