On a Personal Note

Thea began sailing in Desolation Sound in the Pacific Northwest after receiving her coastal cruising certification in her early twenties. Later in life, after cruising from Puerto Vallarta to Cartagena and back on a 51-foot Mikelson Cutter, Thea sold yachts for a brokerage in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico, in 2010.

Relocating to Hawaii in 2012, she sold yachts from small sailboats, to large sport fishers and motor yachts in Honolulu. In Hawaii, she spent much of her spare time fishing on a 51-foot Viking sport fisher. She now owns and lives on a Lagoon 450F catamaran.

Her strong knowledge of sail and power vessels make her the perfect person to sell your yacht. She forms trusting relationships with her clients many of whom become great friends with her.
