Charter Broker
Languages spoken: us
After graduating from Temple University, wanderlust struck and Robin headed south. Leaving Bucks County Pennsylvania behind, she stopped in Ft. Lauderdale for what was to be one year of working on board yachts. Ten years and thousands of sea miles later, she calls Ft. Lauderdale home. Her yachting career includes a myriad of experience on both sail and motor yachts. From 1991-94, Robin was one of very few female First Officers on board large charter yachts in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Her most exciting yachting experience was sailing from New Zealand to the Caribbean stopping in Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and the Seychelles along the way. "Papua New Guinea was like going back in time. I felt as if I stepped into a National Geographic article".

Robin's intimate knowledge of the usual and not so usual charter hot spots is invaluable when planning a charter holiday. She knows what makes a charter successful and that each detail is important. When Robin joined the Ft. Lauderdale office, it was like coming home, as many of the yachts on which she and her husband crewed, were managed by Fraser Yachts Worldwide. "Chartering is the best way to explore a new country. I love helping people plan their dream vacation. It is so rewarding to open up the world of cruising to someone new to the experience."

Robin is a nature and animal lover. She volunteers for a local animal rescue program. When she isn't at the park with her boxer Tallulah, she enjoys exploring the mountains by motorcycle. "I am always in search of the next great spot to visit, either by sea or land."
