Captain Chris Leyden
Captain Chris LeydenCaptain Chris Leyden the founder of SeaPort Yacht Services holds a 500 Ton USCG License and has spent a lifetime at sea. He began his life at sea in Hawaii, sailing, and delivering vessels under sail from Hawaii to the islands in the South Pacific and to the US mainland. This was a time before GPS and satellite weather, when open ocean voyaging was an art form and experience was earned the hard way. He continued his career as the master of several large private sailing & motor yachts, making seasonal runs from the East Coast to the Mediterranean, and then down to the Caribbean. He graduated eventually on to a career as a Yacht Asset & Project Manager with Fraser Yachts, putting his wealth of global yachting experiences to use, guiding owners, captains and crews with his maritime expertise. In 2003 he decided to bring his expertise to owners, dealerships and manufacturers, whose needs did not fit the large yacht management firm’s portfolio requirements. SeaPort Yacht Services delivers excellence to its customers, providing Professional Mariner Services, Yacht Asset Management, Project Management, and Procurement & Outfitting Services for manufacturers, dealerships and owners globally.
