Babbitt began his yachting career in 1989, selling powerboats in New York. Over the years, he has held every position from sales broker and sales manager to vice president, general manager and owner at various yacht brokerages along the Eastern seaboard.

A UK native, Dickinson spent two years as crew and brings a degree in business to the yachting sector.
