Born and raised in socal, James started skiff sailing in the early seventies. The ocean has always been his life. Surfing and sailing seemed to go hand and hand. Being very competitive, sailboat racing came natural. Since his teens he has been offshore racing. He currently campaigns a 42 ft race / cruiser out of his home port, channel islands harbor. He is also a proud member of Channel Islands Yacht Club and is a USCG licensed captain with many years of delivering yachts in California.
James and Laureen (wife) sold their last yacht and purchased their present yacht through DS Yachts, with now dear friend Marty Slater. Working with Dick Simon Yachts and Marty was such a pleasure and far better experience then any brokerage they had interacted with in the past. It was then with the encouragement from Marty that James take the exam and learn the business from Marty and Dick. DS Yachts is a perfect fit for James as a retirement plan. He is in and around boats all the time and loves his job assisting clients for Dick Simon Yachts. Contact James any time / email@example.com 805-250-9111
