Your Vision of the Perfect Adventure
Finding the perfect vessel requires lots of listening, understanding, and advising coupled with an abundance of knowledge. When you work with Chris, you can acquire your dream with confidence, knowing that you’re working with a professional who embraces the key characteristics you would want in this somewhat intimidating venture: passion, experience, and knowledge.
Over the past 20 years, Chris Collins has made way in the ever evolving and intricate world of yachting. Starting below deck in the crew quarters, Chris worked a variety of positions on yachts traveling to diverse parts of the world, both private and charter.
Invested in growth, Chris chose maritime school over vacationing, with the hopes to gain momentum in his career and take full advantage of his time at sea. He earned the title as Captain in 2005, sailing extensively throughout the USA, Bahamas, Caribbean, and Europe.
In 2007, Chris transitioned ashore with the intention to utilize his knowledge and experience as a Master by seeking opportunities in the Yachting Capital of the World - better yet known as Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
He went a step further and absorbed himself in the logistics of yacht ownership and operations becoming a yacht manager, which then led into yacht charter management, and finally placing him in the career he always intended for himself: brokerage.
