Nick Olinde has been an avid boater since he was first born. Born into a family of yachtsmen, it is in his blood. Growing up in Melbourne, Florida Nick spent much of his time cruising the Indian River Lagoon on his family’s flats boats where he learned the basics of boating and the joys that it can bring to his life. As he became more experienced he quickly started handling larger and larger boats and having more responsibilities on these boats.

Nick went on to attend the University of Miami where he received his degree in Business Administration and Management. During his first year in college he knew he wanted to work in the marine industry and so became a USCG licensed captain. During his summers he worked as the 1st mate aboard Moon River, a 62’ Nordhavn, before becoming captain for that same family. Upon graduation, Nick figured out that he did not want to make a career as a captain and would rather work on the business end of the boating world. He decided to become a yacht broker and put his maritime knowledge to good use helping other discover the ecstasy that is boating.
Whether it be a long range trawler, a sports fishing boat, or a big motor yacht, Nicks experience and knowledge of the boating industry gives him the ability to assist his clients to their utmost satisfaction.
