Meet our crew.  Boating and yachting has been a way of life for the past 4 generations of the Wilson family. With the demands of todays society of educational awareness each generation has received continuing education and still are being drawn back to life on the water while being mentored by the previous generation.   This allows us to integrate professional and technical expertise with real world boating experiences.  We can provide a full crew for vessel deliveries, captain for hire excursions, marine surveys and vessel arrests.
