Buell named US director of yacht management for CNI


By Dorie Cox

Rick Buell was named director of U.S. yacht management for Camper & Nicholsons earlier this year. Most recently, he was technical superintendent with the yacht management division of Fraser in Fort Lauderdale where he worked for nearly six years.

Buell works with all aspects of the division including yacht management, new construction, insurance, capitol, refit and repair, crew placement, yacht charter, charter marketing and sales and purchases.

“My directive is to explain what yacht management does and the fact that we do all these things,” Buell said. “I enjoy meeting yacht owners directly and talking with them about our capabilities. We can fully manage a yacht or clients can pick and choose services tailored to exactly what they would like.”

In other company news, Camper & Nicholsons’ Fort Lauderdale office moved to El Edificio at 901 E. Las Olas Blvd. (33301) in February.
