Docking & Boat Handling
Getting that big boat into a little slip can be a daunting challenge, even if we’re experience sailors. But it’s an important skill, like learning how to takeoff and land a plane.
History of Yachtmann.com
During the days of DECEMBER 2014, Capt James Fachtmann who had faithfully served as a loyal yacht salesperson for a small yacht brokerage firm based in Florida, was confronted with the stark reality of the situation. Even though James had been the Top Sales Person for 4 out of the 5 years with the 1st year being “Rookie Broker of the Year” (DEC 2010), the last of a great many injustice had occurred by the hand of that firms leadership that awoke the entrepreneur with-in him. A line had been drawn in the sand and it had been crossed for the final time. It was time to take the road less traveled and venture out, onward, and ultimately upward.

An Owner’s Experience: “Sea View Play” – The Journey of Michael and Zonna
It was during the St. Pete Boat Show of December, 2011 that Katy and I met Michael Eldridge. He was in the US Air Force and I was an Airline Pilot. We met on a new 2011 Jeanneau Yacht when he asked me if I could help him find his first Sailing Vessel and teach him and his wife to sail. She was still serving our country over seas and he wanted to surprise her with their first Sailboat. I recall thinking to myself almost five years ago,“Maybe he would buy a new Jeanneau from me…down the road.” In addition to being at MF displays, look for our welcoming booth at St. Pete Boat ShowIn less than a week, we were able to achieve his first sailboat goals with a near perfect 2007 Catalina 309 that was so clean that you could eat sushi right off the bottom of the bilge. We made an offer that was accepted and by the end of the month he and his wife, just home from overseas, were proud sailboat owners.
Proud MY37 Owner Participates in Fountaine Pajot Bimini Photo Shoot
James taught the proud owner, Todd, how to use his brand new FMY37 while delivering it from the St. Petersburg charter base to the filming location in the Bahamas. James and I had the pleasure of bringing the MY37 back across the Gulf Stream in high seas just in time for the 2016 Miami Boat Show. This 37′ power cat could fly, and she handled the heavy seas just as she and her sailing sisters were designed to, with safety and performance at sea.
An Owner’s Experience: “Clarity” – Lucia 40 Charters from Abaco, Bahamas
Captain Paul Valentic is no stranger to high performance and depending on his vessel when conditions are extreme. Whether in the cockpit of his USAF F-15 or Southwest Airline’s Boeing 737, or his newly-keeled 2017 Fountaine Pajot LUCIA 40, Captain Paul is happiest at the controls. He and his loving wife, Terry, fell in love with the dream of sailing the deep blue sea and with Fountain Pajot’s newest addition to their fleet of ocean cruising catamarans – the LUCIA 40.
