Vince Krivanek Biography
Vince was born in Oak Park, IL and graduated from Northwestern University. He recalls his fond memories of walking the docks of the Chicago Yacht Club and the Michigan City Yacht Club admiring the beautiful classic sailboats with envy for those lucky sailors. In 1975 he chartered a 46’ Ericson named “FINE FEATHER” in St, Martin and sailed off the first day to St. Barts. This remarkable landfall lead to ten years of sailing throughout the eastern Caribbean and living aboard his own 40’ Bristol sloop “CALYPSO” in Christiansted, St. Croix.
In 1985 Vince moved to San Diego, California and began his 27 year career in the yacht brokerage business. He spent the first few years specializing in sailing yachts both large and small. In 1976, he was fortunate to sell several classic wooden schooners, the most memorial was the famous 74’ Fife Schooner “ASTOR”. ASTOR had a unbeatable winning record in the Sydney to Hobart race and is still to this day making cruising and racing history. Over the years Vince has worked with numerous clients to find the perfect sailing yacht to fulfill their dreams of cruising the world’s oceans. Sharing his own experiences in those wonderful years in the Caribbean has made his job all the more fun.
