Capt. Heidy Gross

Yacht Consultant


Growing up in the Florida Keys gave me an appreciation for the outdoors and a deep love for the ocean. As much as I tried to fight it, I eventually became a version of my parents. They ran a sail and snorkel charter business and claim I was conceived onboard our custom-built trimaran. At 10 days old and 3 miles offshore they stuck me in the ocean for the first time. I was sailing our Hobie cat in 20 knots of wind by the age of 10. I got my Padi scuba certification on my 12th birthday before I was strong enough to lift the tank. Needless to say, I have salty blood. Eleven years ago I bought my first sailboat and have been living aboard ever since. I’m currently on boat number 10 and I do all of my own maintenance and upgrades. I’ve grown into and out of each one, each teaching me many valuable lessons along the way. In 2015, I sailed my own bluewater cruiser to Mexico on the Baja Ha-Ha rally and was the youngest female Captain in the fleet. I’ve chartered boats globally and have hosted “learn to sail” adventures numerous times including Croatia, Greece, BVI, Tahiti, Mexico, and the next will be Sicily. Sailing is my passion and I love sharing the experience with others! I don’t consider myself a salesperson but rather a Yacht Matchmaker. I love introducing people to the boating world and have helped countless people find their “perfect boat.” As a Captain, I want everyone to love sailing and the lifestyle as much as I do. If you need help selling your boat or are looking for your next adventure, please consider me as an option. I’d be happy to provide you with my matchmaking or yacht consulting services and help guide you in the right direction. I invite you to contact me with ANY boating questions. Happy sailing!
