He packed his bags and moved to South Florida, the yachting hub of the world. After 3 years working his way up in the industry, Peter proceeded to Captain several successful charter boats, such as ‘Arioso’, ‘Unforgettable’, ‘Lady J’ and ‘Mystic’. He currently holds his MCA Master 3000 and has been running motor yachts for the last 14 years, traveling extensively along the East Coast of the US, Bahamas, Caribbean and Mediterranean.
