Capt. Gary Spivack grew up on the south shore of Long Island racing one-design sailboats and cruising the Long Island-New England area. During college, Gary raced Star boats on the Great South Bay. In 1975, Gary went to work for the local Bertram dealer, managing brokerage and selling Bertram yachts. Over the years, Gary has been involved in delivering boats up and down the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico while pursuing a career as a management consultant. For 30 years, he and his wife and daughter enjoyed cruising and racing sailboats on the Chesapeake Bay from Annapolis to Norfolk. In 2003, Gary got his 100-ton master’s license; he worked as an assistance tow captain for TowBoatUS and operated a tour boat on the Potomac River near Washington DC. Gary also restored his Bertram 20 Bahia Mar and operates his Bertram 38 for charter. After leaving his career as a management consultant, he has returned to yacht brokerage, as an associate with Fillingham Yacht Sales.
