Andre grew up on the water in upstate New York working at his family – operated marina along the Hudson River. After finishing school in 1999, he began his career in yachting by attending Florida’s Chapman’s School of Seamanship. In 2005, Andre obtained his first Captain’s position cruising waters that included Nova Scotia, New England, US East Coast, Great Lakes, Caribbean and Mediterranean.
Since then, Andre has commanded a variety of large yachts up to 165 feet, and developed a reputation that turned first time charter clients into excited repeat guests and first-time boat buyers. Andre’s skillset brought him ashore in 2017 and was swiftly recruited by the reputable Worth Avenue Yachts based in Palm Beach, Florida. He quickly became a resource for new and current yacht owners and with Andre’s experience providing high-end service to the yachting industry, he is excited to use his knowledge and passion assisting clients at Hinckley Yachts.
