Mike Frank has taken over as director of U.S. Yacht Management with Camper & Nicholsons International in February. Frank brings 30 years of experience as a captain with 480,000 nautical miles including Royal Australian Navy service. Most recently he was CEO of RMK Merrill-Stevens in Miami.
“I expect to build up the division and provide topline service and management for both motor and sail boats,” Frank said. “I should be able to do this with my network of brokers, shipyards, captains and owners that I’ve worked with in past. We want to redevelop and expand because of the existing demand for these services, and as we grow we hope to introduce a technical person in our team by year end.”
Frank grew up in New South Wales, Australia, and has a variety of sailing experience including 10 Sydney Hobart races from 1978-1987, the Southern Ocean Racing Conference and the Clipper Cup race around Hawaii. He and his wife, Wendy Frank of MTS in Ft. Lauderdale, met on sailboats and celebrate their 28th anniversary this year.
