Growing up in Holland, Michigan on the shores of Lake Michigan Nick’s passion for the water began at an early age while cruising the shores on his family’s boat.  During the summer months of high school and college Nick served as Dockmaster at Coral Gables Resort in Saugatuck, Michigan. In the summer of his Sophomore year a member of the yacht club asked him to deliver his 71’ Hatteras motor yacht to Fort Lauderdale. 

Soon after arriving in Fort Lauderdale in 1998 Nick realized that Florida was the place he would now call home. He obtained his first captain’s license and quickly purchased a home.  He continued to work onboard the 71’ Hatteras while fulfilling the promise he made to his parents to finish his college degree. He graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 2000 with his degree in Business Economics.

After graduation Nick continued to pursue his captain’s career while serving on motor yachts ranging from 68’-140’ for both private and charter vessels.  He has also worked as a warranty technician for Sunseeker assisting in the repair of vessels and performing pre-delivery inspections of new vessels.  During his 20+ years as a licensed captain Nick continued to upgrade his license and currently holds a U.S.C.G. 1600GRT/3000 ITC Upon Oceans License as well a ISM DPA Auditors Certificate with excellent knowledge of Class Compliance, Flag Compliance, International Safety Management and M.L.C. requirements.

Nick has been a build captain for both a Sunseeker and Benetti yacht and is an expert in refits. This experience, along with his background serving as captain for both private and charter yachts, will assure that every aspect of selling or purchasing your next vessel will be covered.
