Shawn grew up using the limited available water in Alberta, and exploring with all the craft that could ply those waters, canoes, kayaks, windsurfers, runabouts, small sail, and other items that float. Later aquatic interludes include local and long distance sailing/cruising, many sea miles, crewing on many types of craft including large sail and few catamarans. Shawn’s work and time around the water has brought him to the Caribbean, Panama, along with the US, Canadian, & Mexican Pacific Coast.

Shawn came to Vela Yacht Sales in Jan 2009 and strives to improve upon the professionalism and ethics bestowed from past business experiences. "Navigating fellow boaters successfully in and out of their vessel ownerships is what has kept our business successful in a difficult time."
Andrea grew up in the semi arid desert of the BC interior but her fascination with the ocean started very early on. She left the hoodoos behind soon after high school to go and “find her treasure” when she ended up in Mallorca, Spain and her love of sailing began. She has lived and sailed in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and worked as a NAUI Divemaster in Mexico following opportunities to work on and under the water whenever she can. Andrea looks forward to sharing her love of boating and helping find just the right one for you.
