About Steve Black
I started working with Boatshed Texas in July 2016.
What did you do before working with Boatshed?
After completing college I travelled to France and worked in a variety of crew positions on charter boats and yachts on the French Riviera, based in the Mediterranean port of Antibes. I attained much of my initial experience as a crew member and people person there. Several years later I took an opportunity to move to the USA to join a local Sailing School and Charter Boat Company teaching ASA Sailing programs and running captain charters. Also during that time I worked as delivery crew doing offshore deliveries to/ from the Caribbean for a new start up company on the east coast which aided in gaining those much needed sea miles to attain his US Coast Guard Marine License.
I currently own and I'm operations manager of an established yacht management/ maintenance business in the Corpus Christi, Texas area, I manage and maintain yachts and boats for private owners and assists with the overall upkeep, maintenance and refits of their vessels. I have a trained eye for detail and a broad hands on knowledge and experience of both power and sailing vessels and their associated systems/ equipment.
What attracted you to become part of the Boatshed team?
I'm proud to be a member & part of the Boatshed team & look forward in assisting our customers find new homes for their quality pre-owned vessels here in S. Texas.
Are you a motorboater or a sailor?
