Triton Spotter: Miami Beach

Stew Vanessa Vaporis sent a Triton Spotter from Sunset Harbour Yacht Club in Miami Beach.

She works on the 95-foot Sunseeker M/Y Persistence and loves taking a peek out the window while on the job.

“From whatever toilet I scrub — and there are a lot of them — I have a great view,” she said. “Even when I’m steaming clothes, I look out and think, ‘That’s why I do what I do.’ ”
