David Dabney has sailing in his blood. Growing up in Florida, he learned to sail as a child and developed a love for the sea ever since. Starting on small sailing prams, David spent most of his childhood sailing in Sarasota Bay. Once in high school, his love for the open ocean kept on developing and inspired dreams of bigger passages.
Upon graduating college, David purchased a sailboat in Maryland and started living aboard. For the past three years David has been cruising the entire East coast of the United States, as well as the Caribbean islands, as far south as Grenada. This is when David realized his next dream– helping others to find the right boat in order to accomplish their dreams! David’s love for sailboats runs deep. Whether you are looking for a capable ocean-going yacht, a daysailer, or a boat that can win you a few regatta trophies, he would be honored to help you find your next boat. With his extensive knowledge of boat manufacturers, sailing territories and cruising experience, David can tailor the right boat to fit your needs.
