Suncoast Yachts image Darrell Erickson started sailing when he was 12 years old, after he and his father built his first sailboat and he has been on the water ever since. Collectively, he and his wife, Sarah, have owned 16 sailboats ranging from trailerables to their most recent, a Tayana 47, which they cruised extensively in Mexico. They are also experienced power boaters, owning a 46’ 1956 Chris Craft and currently a 42’ Grand Banks Classic. Darrell enjoys sharing his love of boating by working with clients to find just the right boat to fits their needs and desires, whether for cruising, racing or day sailing.

Suncoast Yachts image Greg McDowell grew up in Fullerton, California and was first exposed to sailing in the late 70's when he started sailing Shields 30's with his friends in Newport Beach Harbor. From this casual hobby, he discovered a great passion that, to his surprise, was to become a lifelong love for boating. Greg bought his first boat, a Santana 22, in 1983 and has been in the Dana Point Harbor ever since. Over the years Greg has done as much coastal cruising, racing and Bareboat Charters as he can while enjoying a family and full time job.
Thirty years later Greg bought the boat he'd been dreaming of for many years, a Pacific Seacraft 31, purchased right here at Suncoast Yachts. Greg is starting his next phase in life as a Yacht Consultant with Suncoast - a career he hopes will keep him ever closer to his passion for boating. If you're looking for your first boat or the boat of your dreams come to Suncoast Yachts and ask for Greg. You can reach Greg direct on his cell 949 795-6797 or his email
