Love blossoms to engagement on yacht

ADVERTISEMENT

Bosun Jared Woodin and Chief Stew Mia Nordangard of M/Y Cheers 46, a 140-foot Benetti, got engaged just before the boat show on a holiday in Mexico.

They spent their trip celebrating Nordangard’s birthday, snorkeling and horseback riding, basically doing all the romantic things young people in love will do. And when the time came for the nice dinner, Woodin put on a suit.

“I was acting all nervous, and she said ‘why are you acting all weird?’ ” he said, retelling the story on the docks Saturday, laughing. “ ‘Why are you sweating so much? Why are you wearing a suit?’ ”

And then he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes.

“It was like a movie,” Nordangard said.

 

The couple has no date set yet, but they hope to wed in Sweden where her family is, which gives him an excuse to fly his family to Europe.

    We have a similar story – Captain (he) and refit Engineer (me) got engaged last Christmas in the Bahamas 🙂 Had to sneak him off his boat a couple of times to see each other but it was wonderful. Still no plans as we await his US citizenship! Great story; congratulations!
