Jeff began his professional yachting career in 2002, in South Florida. After a few years of training, and gaining his 100TON USCG license and later his 200TON MASTERS, he moved quickly to start his own business, Distinctive Yacht Management. For ten years, Jeff catered to the private yacht owners, as an “Alternative to Full-Time Crew”. He would manage all aspects of the vessel from the maintenance and repairs, to operating, relocating or cruising of the vessel for owner getaways. During that time, he had an opportunity to hire contractors from all trades. Jeff found himself particularly interested in the woodwork on his boats and absorbed all he could from those talented carpenters and craftsmen. He now fabricates and installs his own woodwork on his vessels, enjoying the transition to New England with his wife, and young son.
