Chandler was raised in a small town on the shores of Lake Michigan. The son of a yacht captain, his love for the water started at a young age. As a kid, Chandler spent much of his summers attending sailing school and racing regattas on the lake. Limited by opportunities at home and fueled by his passion for boating, he decided to move to Florida after college in pursuit of a career in yachting. His first few jobs were delivering sailboats around the U.S. and Caribbean, but after obtaining his 100 ton license, he broke into the world of yachting and hasn’t looked back. Whether he’s working a charter, or taking a break, you can always find Chandler in the water; on the beach, diving, or kiteboarding.
