Boating before walking, waterman Captain Mark Abel (AKA 'the yacht whisperer') brings aboard a lifetime of lifetime of yachting experiences and is currently rated as a USCG 200 ton Master of sail and power. Captain Mark Abel has crossed the Pacific Ocean twice to Hawaii to California, travelled the waters from British Columbia to Panama, transited the canal twice, cruised the islands of the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico and up the East coast of the US. He has trained hundreds of students to the American Sailing Association standards and has worked extensively with Beneteau/Lagoon in training and orienting owners to their new yachts.
Coming from a film, video and broadcasting background, (including a decade with Paramount Pictures and ten years on Los Angeles radio as a CBS radio personality). Captain Mark has very strong people skills that have translated nicely into the world of yacht charter with many sea stories and tales as a land lubber in working in Hollywood!
