We invite you to discover what makes us different
We believe that the extras define exceptional. Our classic vessel offers vintage charm with modern amenities. Our luxury accommodations, concierge-quality service, and gourmet dining make a difference rather than compete with other choices you may have.
As owner-operators, we value making relationships! We measure success by how you describe your experiences aboard our vessel to others. We want “Take Me There” to say it all – for you and those you recommend us to.
I believe that safety and peace of mind are foundational elements of an extraordinary private cruising experience.
I want you to believe that sailing with us takes private cruising to a whole new level because YOU deserve Exceptional!
As a 30-year Army Veteran, I have tremendous experience with planning and executing missions safely and effectively. Your exceptional private charter experience with us is my mission!
As a sailor and former cruiser, I let go of the “rigid” Army mindset but kept the valuable experience that makes me the best I can be at serving others. I’ve been boating and sailing for 40 years. I hold a United States Coast Guard 100 Ton Masters Captain’s Credential with Sailing and Towing Endorsements. I have extensive experience with this vessel in Atlantic and Gulf Coast waters as well as the Florida Keys and the Bahamas.
As your Captain, I will ensure the comfort, confidence, and safety of all aboard Take Me There with a wink and a smile so that you can focus on what’s important – You!
As a member of your host team… I will tempt you to smile, laugh, enjoy, let go, and just “be.”
As your service provider… We are excited to have you aboard...All you need to do is say Take Me There!
I guess the best word to describe me is “eclectic”. I can’t get enough of learning new things, finding the next big adventure, and engaging with people.
After 20 years as CEO of a leadership consulting company designed to help corporations create healthy cultures, I am now Chief Experience Officer of Take Me There Sailing as well as head chef and your personal concierge. I’m doing all the things I love to do – sail, create culinary delights, and connect with people.
I also enjoy practicing yoga, curling up with a good book, writing the next chapter in my book, spending time with family, and planning upcoming adventures. What keeps me up at night? Wondering if I have successfully fulfilled God’s plan for me that day. What gets me up in the morning? The excitement of what lies ahead for the next day.
Every day I look forward to inspiring others to find joy in their journey and contributing to a life well-lived.
Are you ready? Just say, “Take Me There”!
Who We Are
Take Me There Sailing LLC is the result of a dream. After living aboard Take Me There for five years and exploring the US and Caribbean waters, we moved to a land home. As much as we love our home in New Port Richey, FL, we felt unsettled about leaving our adventures. Take Me There is more than a boat; it is a vessel that holds your dreams and creates a space for excitement, harmony, and discovery. Come aboard and find joy in the journey!
Take Me There Sailing, LLC is our invitation for you to wander, explore, and realize your dreams- because you deserve exceptional.
We’ve been on the big cruise ships. Although nice in their own way, they lack the intimacy, privacy, and personality of sailing. We felt more like numbers instead of humans.
We looked deeply at the sailing charter industry, and the service models offered in Florida’s Gulf Coast area and could not find anyone operating a sailing business that offered something affordable and exceptional…so we decided to fill that void. And here we are- ready to plan your next big adventure with you.
We offer you a bit of our dream in the form of a personalized, concierge, gourmet sailing charter service focused on providing you exceptional service and an amazing vacation that you will always remember. Life’s special moments deserve to be celebrated- a marriage proposal, the announcement of a baby, honeymoon, anniversary, family gathering, friends get-together, or the fulfillment of a bucket list item. Whatever the occasion, come let us take you there- because you deserve exceptional!
