CAPTAIN KEVIN THOMPSON was born in Annapolis, Maryland, and grew up on the shores of the Chesapeake. One might describe him as a nautical child prodigy, he started sailing at age six, and by age 13 was driving his beloved 22’ Mako. He also became a certified diver at age 13. In school, he was a competitive swimmer, having held records for 8 years in the backstroke.
Kevin attended various maritime schools and classes, and soon became a licensed captain, starting out on The Chesapeake. He dove for oysters for a living at 23 and worked in 3 different boatyards, learning all aspects of maintenance, later managing a fleet of various builds and styles of sailing yachts and trawlers. He loves the mechanical and maintenance side of boat work as a hobby and as business. Kevin has owned 5 center consoles up to a 30’ Intrepid with twin 250 Yamahas, and any family boat his dad purchased always sold for more than the initial price due to Kevin maintaining and keeping them in Bristol condition!
Kevin has now operated fine sailing and motor yachts both privately and for charter, mostly throughout the US East Coast, The Bahamas, and the Caribbean for 34 years without incident. This includes running “Strait Jacket”, (which is the Lady Sharon Gale when she was newly built!) from Florida to Grenada, where he visited almost every island on the way down or back up, while towing a 34’ Intrepid cuddy cabin loaded with sports fishing gear.

Kevin has raised 3 fine sons, one is a yacht captain, another is still in school, and the third is Dylan, now the mate on Lady Sharon Gale! Before joining LSG, Kevin was hired to teach “At The Helm Training” to yacht owners, instructing them how to safely operate their vessels in South Florida. Having spent much time on the water, he gives The Bahamas and the Virgin Islands equal billing as his favorite cruising grounds. Kevin focuses on a clean vessel, good rapport with the crew and guests, and keeping the crew hard at work! His friends describe him as a people pleaser, funny, and huge lover of blue water and water dogs!
