My passion for boats started at a very young age. Coming from my homeland in theFijiIslands, one of the main means of transportation is by boats. Boating and water sports are a natural passion for me. Growing up I accompanied my Dad to see our company boats under construction which was always fun and exciting. After completing my sailing license 100 ton master & mate for Fiji Coastal waters I was actively involved in the family business, Bay Cruises & Island Water Sports. The company had exclusive water sports concessions for Sheraton Resorts, Trendwest World Mark Resort on Denarau Island and Vomo Island. While studying in Auckland, New Zealand I was exposed to high end yachts and the boating lifestyle. Having worked for several 5 Star resorts in the Fiji Islands as an Activities Director my personal interaction and communication with people around the globe has been an attribute to my career. Moving to Seattle in 2003 my passion for boating led me to join a Sunseeker dealer. Working in the service dept I was promoted to sales as the Pre Owned Boat manager and full time sales. In 2012 I was involved in opening Marquis & Carver Yacht Center in Seattle. With my excellent customer service background working for world renowned resort destinations and dealing with elite clientele such as executives of Microsoft, Amazon, Nordstrom, Macy’s and Boeing to name a few, I genuinely take pride in assisting with a client’s yacht for sale or purchase. It is a privilege to be part of the Orange Coast Yacht team and further my boating passion into a career.
