One of the biggest yachting meccas in America now has a new watch-stander. Captain Vinny Focaracci recently took over operations at Sea Tow Fort Lauderdale, providing on-water assistance 24/7/364 to boaters on the local waterways and offshore.
Captain Vinny is a local, who grew up in nearby Pompano Beach, sailing with his parents on weekends. His first boat was a Parker 19’, and he earned his 100-ton captain’s license at the age of 19. After he graduated with a business degree from Florida Atlantic University, his first marine-related job as a dockmaster taught him the importance of excellent customer service − something he is looking forward to providing to Sea Tow members at his new business.
Sea Tow Fort Lauderdale’s assets include six U.S. Coast Guard-licensed Captains and four yellow Sea Tow RIBS ranging in size from 21 to 33 feet. For more information, please call (954) 525-0037 or visit Sea Tow Fort Lauderdale.
