Kristin has extensive knowledge of canvas and sail repair, diesel engine maintenance, boat systems maintenance and passage planning. 

Kristin comments “Matt was my broker four years ago when I was on the hunt for my current boat and was introduced to Ryan around the same time. I was so impressed with their knowledge, transparency, and passion for the industry. Matt suggested back then that I should consider becoming a yacht broker, and I am so thrilled to have finally made the leap!”
