Willie Lynch Joins the Latitude Yacht Team as Their Newest Yacht Broker 150 150 admin

Willie Lynch Joins the Latitude Yacht Team as Their Newest Yacht Broker

The summer season may be coming to a close but Latitude Yacht Brokerage is still full steam ahead and pleased to announce the addition of Willie Lynch as their newest Yacht Broker.

Willie is originally from Dublin, Ireland and grew up sailing and racing on the Irish Sea. His racing days graduated into boat management, instruction, and maintenance that resulted in jobs around the world including Greece, Spain, and Australia before moving to Chicago in the early 2000s. After a few years with a sailing and charter business in Chicago, Willie began working with a private owner who was passionate about both sailboat and powerboat restorations and together they refit two classic Huckins. Since that time, he has been involved with over 10 refits for private owners and is one of the most knowledgeable Huckins boaters around.

Willie has sailed tens of thousands of miles between racing, deliveries, and cruising, in every role imaginable. He hopes that his broad boating background will enable him to understand what any client is looking for and provide first-hand experience and advice on all aspects of boat ownership and management. He is looking forward to helping people get into their perfect boat. Willie can be reached at 773-870-6444 or at willie@latitudeyacht.com.

2015 Holland 38 “Belfast” – Asking $329,000

“Belfast” is among the finest Downeast yachts available.  Built on the outstanding 38′ Holland hull, a lot of thought went into her construction, outfitting and finish work.  Design work and equipment onboard should not be overlooked.  View Full Specifications for details.

Her hull was hand laid up in 2015 by Holland Boat Shop, finished in 2019 by a team of talented craftsmen in Southern New England.

 

1987 46′ McCurdy & Rhodes Cutter “Naarden” – Asking $159,000

“Naarden” is a very clean and well-maintained semi-custom aluminum Center Cockpit Cutter.  Designed by the renowned McCurdy and Rhodes Naval Architects and built by the Habbeke Shipyard in Zwartsluis, Netherlands.  She has been lovingly cared for by her current owner and is being sold fully equipped.

 

2002 Tiara Yachts 3100 Open “True North” – Asking $149,900

Extraordinary Tiara 3100 Open.  Owned by Hobbyist/Enthusiast and Meticulously Maintained. Extensive Refit 2020.  Rare Turn-Key Opportunity.  Fully In Commission and Ready to Go

 

2005 Hinckley Talaria 55 “Big Decision” – Asking $1,200,000 – Presented by Worth Avenue Yachts

BIG DECISION has been maintained without regard to cost by her owner. She is loaded with custom features and creature comforts which provide a luxurious platform for cruising, and a shoal draft for gunkholing. This Talaria 55 Motoryacht, was built as “THUNDER” for a knowledgeable and experienced owner who was very involved in the build, as is evident in countless details that have made this a truly unique boat. With her twin 1300-hp MAN diesel engines, the Hamilton Waterjets, and the Hinckley JetStick, the boat has great performance and reliability, and is easily handled by one or two.

 

2004 Friendship 40 “Tenderly” – Asking $775,000 – Presented by Northrop and Johnson Yachts

Absolute unrivaled quality is synonymous with the Friendship Yacht Company.  Incorporating many elements from his large custom yachts, designer Ted Fontaine has created the FRIENDSHIP 40, a luxury daysailer whose concept has been imitated, but by no means equaled. Uniquely customized and exquisitely appointed, the Friendship 40 optimizes push-button sailing, all handled by one person. The size of the cockpit, normally found on a much larger yacht, creates the perfect venue for a cocktail cruise for 10 guests.  Similar in its concept to a picnic boat or an express cruiser, TENDERLY brings a new sense of ease to a day at sea with unmatched elegance and style.

Latitude Welcomes Hailey Hock onboard as a Yacht Broker & Charter Agent 150 150 admin

Latitude Welcomes Hailey Hock onboard as a Yacht Broker & Charter Agent

Hailey Hock discovered Latitude during the summer of 2018.  As an intern, she assisted in the development of Latitude’s Yacht Charter Division. While interning, Hailey joined brokers Ryan and Matt at the Newport Charter Show, peaking a new career interest in Yacht Charter and Brokerage.

Hailey has spent nearly all her summers growing up in Charlestown, Rhode Island.  Whether spending time on her family’s boat or working on various boats within her Rhode Island area, she has always been on the water. Most notably, Hailey pitched in five summers on the esteemed motor vessel, Aphrodite, working as a stewardess and a deckhand in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. Hailey graduated from Ithaca College in May of 2019, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Communications Management and Design, with a focus in Marketing.  Shortly after graduating, she began a fulltime position as a Lead Deckhand on a 146’ Feadship that traveled the Caribbean.  After a year of traveling, Hailey decided to return home to be closer with her family and pursue a career as a Yacht & Charter Broker at Latitude Yacht Brokerage.

As the newest addition to the Latitude team, Hailey hopes to bring forth the knowledge she has gained during her travels throughout New England, Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean and put it into valuable action. Hailey is excited to begin a career within this ever-changing and expanding industry. To contact Hailey, call her at 860-309-5800 or email her at: hailey@latitudeyacht.com
