Bernie

As an engineer in the aerospace industry, all those years reading sailing magazines during my successful career, known as a job, I dreamed of one thing, the day I would escape my day job and sail full time…like all those reading this! I imagined a special kind of yacht brokerage, uniquely dedicated to blue water boats and the cruising life style. In 1998, the dream became reality. Now, some ten years later, RogueWave Yacht Sales & Services, Inc. has helped more than 1000 sailors get into their dream boat. As an engineer, there is always a plan, a guiding light, and a destination. Now, all those years of experience have made me uniquely capable in guiding people. I have owned, sailed and lived aboard more than a few high quality sailing vessels. In the early 70s I owned two Catalinas, a 27 then a 30. From there it was a Westsail 32, which at that time and still today, is one of the benchmarks of a true classic bluewater cruiser. In the 80s, I raised a family aboard and sailed a far, on a beautiful Norseman 447, built by Tashing, designed by Bob Perry. Later, I owned a Pacific Seacraft Crealock 34. After that, a Valiant 40, probably Perry’s most well known design. Today, after having owned so many truly great boats, the Valiant 40 is still my all time favorite. In the early years of RogueWave Yacht Sales, Kate and I traded up to an amazing 2001 Hallberg-Rassy 53. Wow! That was a yacht of the highest order, in fact we won the West Marine Bermuda Rally doing a 264 mile noon to noon run on her. Then we owned the most beautiful, Bristol Channel Cutter (BCC28) named “Indigo”. I have sailed all of these vessels to many foreign ports and lived aboard them while raising a family. I have disassembled everyone of these vessels and put them back together, installing every system there is, while maintaining every boat properly. These years of experience have truly made me a specialist in high caliber blue water sailing yachts. I know of no other Broker that can make that statement! As a Licensed & Bonded Yacht Broker, please give me the pleasure of helping you define and choose your next passage making/offshore capable sailing yacht; all gained from having a 100 Ton USCG Master License, having been a Marine Surveyor, a MSME Mechanical Engineer and lastly, having sailed over 200,000 some offshore miles, if sailing my own boats or delivering countless of others to about everywhere imaginable.
Sailing isn't a hobby to us, it's a lifestyle........for.......... "If a man must be obsessed with something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps a bit better than most. A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise and the hint of trouble. If it happens to be an auxiliary cruising boat, it is without question the most compact and ingenious arrangement for living ever devised by the restless mind of man - a home that is stable without being stationary, shaped less like a box than like a fish or a girl, and in which the homeowner can remove his daily affairs as far from shore as he has the nerve to take them, close hauled or running free - parlor, bedroom and bath, suspended and alive."

Kate

As Kate was Bernie’s partner and co-owner of RogueWave Yacht Sales from 2002 to 2014.She brought her expertise and special love of traditional blue water sailing vessels. The stout seaworthy vessels of substance, charm, and character. As a woman sailor, and having owned my own boat, Kate brought a special perspective to all those who are like her. She truly loved to help people especially those solo sailors and women, to have the confidence to own their own boat, as I did, then and do now. If you see the Valiant 42 Mahalo out there, it will be Kate at the helm. Fair Winds.
