It is with great sadness that we report to our friends, partners and clients that our longtime friend and colleague, Carlos Echeverria, has passed away.

Carlos served as a loyal partner and head of our yacht sales and consulting services since our company's founding in the late '90s.   Prior to that, he was a trailblazer and one of the yachting industry's leading brokers and experts, having worked for such esteemed firms as C.A. Hansen Yacht Insurance, Northrop & Johnson and Sparkman & Stephens.
 
Carlos has been a long time member and supporter of The New York Yacht Club and The Explorers Club.   He attended graduate business school at The Wharton School and was a well-known yachtsman and team member in the Olympic and Pan Am games, Gold Cup and many other international yachting competitions.
 
He was also known as a descendant of a long line of Mexican aristocrats and politicians.  He once showed me a photo of his grandfather at some kind of gathering with, of all people, Pancho Villa, at his side.  He also used to entertain us with war stories from his early years when he shared company and yachting adventures with a who's who of celebrities, including Errol Flynn.
 
We used to joke that the only way to determine Carlos' real age was to do a carbon dating.  One of his favorite quotes (from Confucius):  "It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop."   He was a living embodiment of this concept.
 
He was and is a legend and a world-class trooper, and we will miss him dearly.

Yes, we know, the Memorial Day holiday is barely over and summer has just begun—but the Yachtstore database is telling us that many already have the Christmas and New Year’s holidays on their minds. Note: it is never too early to start booking!

The larger megayachts get, the longer it takes to walk from the bottom deck up to the top. Aboard some of the world’s largest yachts, three or four flights of stairs are now the norm. To ease and enhance the guest experience as much as possible, a number of charter yachts are being built with elevators that go from the staterooms to some of the most popular gathering spots, including the main salon and sky lounge. Find out about these amazing yachts.

This summer’s Alaska yacht charter season offers some incredible opportunities for guests. In addition to the destination being fantastic, some truly wonderful motoryachts still have available charter dates. It’s nature meets luxury, the best of both worlds. http://buff.ly/1HJ37yU
