About Us

“Greetings! I am Captain Alan, founder and Managing Member of Chesapeake Yacht Services LLC. I grew up on the York River in the small fishing and farming community of Croaker, Virginia (Yes, it really was named after the delectable fish!). After serving my final assignment in the U.S. Navy, I returned home to the Chesapeake Bay. I’ve since spent the majority of my life meandering the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and it’s tributaries with the exception of time spent fishing and enjoying the marine offerings of North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

Chesapeake Yacht Services LLC started operations in April of 2022. Prior to that I operated award-winning fishing and sightseeing  charter boat businesses and delivered yachts up and down the east coast and Caribbean. Combining those skill sets with years of real world experience in vessel maintenance and restoration/upgrade projects prepared me to go forward with this next chapter in starting Chesapeake Yacht Services LLC.

In addition to operating C.Y.S., I share duties at our family’s kayak eco-tour company, Bay Country Kayaking, with my daughter Shannon. I also serve as an Instructor for many courses at Chesapeake Marine Training Institute in Gloucester, VA.”
