Al has been on the water since the age of 5 growing up around Newport R.I. and sailing in the Southern New England coast. Some of his passions are boat building, along with sailboat racing. In 1997 he relocated to the Tampa Bay and joined the St Petersburg Power Squadron, Davis Island Yacht Club, Cruising Club of America, and the Seven Seas Cruising Association with the goal of offshore cruising. As a delivery Captain, holding a 100ton Coast Guard license and sailing endorsement, Al has had the opportunity to operate a variety of power and sailing watercraft that allowed him to gain an excellent understanding of the working systems on a vessel. He has motored and sailed boats ranging from 8 feet to 60 feet from Maine to the southern Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. With his lifetime involvement with boats, he is ready to assist you in the purchasing or selling of your vessel in a professional and knowledgeable manner.
