Born in Detroit and moving to Fort Lauderdale in the ’80’s, Bud began his career in the yachting industry. His first exposure was assisting with a million-dollar refit project on the Abeking Rasmussen “SEA DIAMOND” while experimenting with products like Awlgrip, now an industry standard. Bud learned about yachts from the inside out, admiring their engineering and design beauty.
Bud gained experience moving up the ranks from deckhand to mega yacht captain, traveling more than 50,000 nautical miles over the last decade. As captain of yachts and sport fish boats, both private and charter, he has cruised extensively in the Bahamas, Caribbean, US, and Mediterranean. Bud has also had the opportunity to travel around the world visiting and working with some of the top shipyards. Extensive hands-on project management, refit and build experience makes him a valuable asset to his clients.
Bud now joins the professionals of the worldwide SUPERYACHT SALES AND CHARTER team, to assist his present and future clients in making the proper choice for their yachting needs.
