Growing up in Kennebunk, Maine, Charlotte has spent most of her life on the water. Her mother taught her how to sail on a wooden boat her grandfather built and she has spent every summer since racing around the buoys aboard dinghies and big boats along the coast of New England. She holds a USCG license as well as a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a focus in American Public Policy and Constitutional Law from St. Mary’s College in Maryland.
During her summers off from college, Charlotte taught at and managed the junior sailing program at SailMaine. After earning her degree, she worked as a project coordinator for a utility company. Trading in her hardhat to return to life on the water, Charlotte took her STCW-95 and went to work on private yachts and joined the crew at True Course Yachting as a First Mate and detailer. She then moved back to Maine full time to manage Chicks Marina in Kennebunkport. She is an ABBRA (American Boat Builders & Repairers Association) certified Marine Service Manager. During her tenure at Chicks, the marina was awarded the MarinaLife third and then second best small marina in the US and the Elite Fleet and Boaters’ Choice awards from Marinas.com and Dockwa, both for a five-star customer experience!
Charlotte has done extensive one design racing throughout the United States- most recently campaigning J24s. She is a boat owner and member of the Portland Yacht Club. Her passion for customer service and connecting with people in the yachting industry led her to join East Coast Yacht Sales to help her fellow boaters into their dream vessels!
