Katy’s wide-ranging charter experience, from Chief Stewardess to Charter Manager and everything in between, means over 1,000 clients know they can trust her to take care of every element of their onboard vacation.
A true expert in the Americas, and the many stunning cruising grounds this region offers as well as the regulations, Katy’s main client base is American, Canadian and South American. She uses extensive travel experience in the Caribbean, Bahamas, South America (where she also lived) and New England to ensure every client enjoys the very best of these areas. Katy is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese after studying in Spain and Brazil, so South American as well as English-speaking clients can enjoy seamless communications and professionalism in their own language.
Over 90% of her clients today have enjoyed such exceptional onboard experiences under Katy’s guidance that they keep returning year after year. Indeed, in the past two years, every charter Katy has organised has been for a repeat client. Her clear communication, integrity and attention to detail, leaving no stone unturned even when challenges arise, are assets any charterer can expect when they choose Katy.
In her career so far, Katy has handled hundreds of charters worth tens of millions of dollars, on everything from +90M/+300’ yachts to small catamarans. She is a proud member of the International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA) and Young Professionals in Yachting (YPY).
Washington-born Katy worked for the World Health Organization, The World Bank, The American Association for Advancement of Science and other NGOs in DC before turning to yachting. Today, her hobbies include anything equestrian and Vinyasa yoga, and she is a busy mum to 4-year-old Riggs and a rescue tabby cat named Matteo.
