Elizabeth has more than 30 years of experience in the open ocean. She started sailing in Newport Beach, CA when she was seven years old and progressed up to bigger boats from there. When Elizabeth was fifteen years old, she was hired as the deckhand/stew on a Grand Banks 48-foot luxury yacht, the Elbee II. Within a month, she was running the boat. This was the beginning of Elizabeth’s lifelong love for living and working on the water. While living at the Balboa Bay Club and working in Newport Beach CA for The Crow’s Nest Yacht Brokerage, she started her first yacht maintenance company, Elizabeth’s Yacht Service, doing routine maintenance on boats and also working for yacht owners.

Elizabeth has had a boat of her own since then, and has been actively delivering boats since then. She has done deliveries in excess of 3,000 miles over 50 days, and is insurable for deliveries during the hurricane/ cyclone season worldwide. She has extensive experience providing total yacht management, including crew, outfitting, maintenance, scheduling, and accounting. She speaks English, Spanish and Basic Italian.
