Devan’s committed relationship with the boating lifestyle began after graduating from high school, when he spent a summer working on a commercial fishing boat in Alaska.
To cap off that summer, he joined friends sailing in the Bahamas. That experience and the allure of warm ocean waters inspired him to begin organizing sailing trips from Florida to the Bahamas. Throughout his college years he organized dozens of sailing charters in the Bahamas and Virgin Islands. He fell in love with boating. Since then, his boating lifestyle has included racing, cruising and living aboard in the San Francisco Bay and Delta region. His serious cruising experience began with a year-long sail adventure with his wife from California to Florida via the Panama Canal. Throughout the years, he has cruised extensively with his wife and two sons through the Florida Keys, Bahamas, Cuba, Colombia, Panama, Central America and the Caribbean islands. His racing experience includes the Heineken Regatta, Antigua Race Week, BVI Spring Regatta, Newport-Ensenada, Santa Barbara-King Harbor and beer can races on San Francisco bay. Dev has sailed, commissioned and delivered large catamarans and powerboats and is an avid barefoot water skier. He is no stranger to boat maintenance, marinas and the various things that make the luxury boating lifestyle possible. Dev has introduced hundreds of people to the luxury of the boating lifestyle. He knows what it takes to escape the rat race and follow your dreams on a boat, whether it be on a powerboat, monohull, or catamaran.
