Tim Hanley joined the Dream Yacht Sales team in 2018 and is based in San Diego, California. He has extensive coastal and ocean sailing experience from the Caribbean and Mediterranean to Hawaii and up and down both United States coasts. Tim keeps his USCG Captains License up to date and can help you find the perfect yacht in charter management with Dream Yacht Sales.
Tim has spent the majority of his time on the water since his youth. He is originally from Manhattan Beach in California, but he learned to sail in the Chesapeake Bay in a Sabot and bought his first sailboat near Atlantic City, New Jersey. Tim soon took to the warmer living of the Caribbean islands, basing himself in St. John USVI doing underwater sailing photography and sailing as much as possible. His sailing career brought him to live in Aruba, Little Cayman, and Ambergris Cay in Belize during that time.
He has held a 100 GT USCG Captains License since 1996 and began working in the charter industry (crewed yacht division) with the Moorings in the British Virgin Islands. He has worked with them in St. Martin, Grenada, and a few islands in between. Tim has also sailed and worked in the charter industry in Corsica and France, and it was there that he got experience working closely with a local boat builder. Tim has experience working with private yacht owners of boats up to 107 feet and has sailed across the Atlantic and then spent time sailing in Europe.
Tim returned to working in yacht brokerage in California in 2004 in Marina Del Rey but now calls San Diego home where he lives with his wife. He purchased a small charter company called Sail San Diego and has since built it up to be the number one rated charter company in San Diego according to Trip Advisor.
