Juan Monteverde Yacht
Yacht Owner in New York, New York
All my life, I’ve lived near the water. I’ve never been able to resist the siren song of boating, the motion of the waves, and the feel of a yacht slicing through the swell.
My father, an accomplished boater who now owns a 50-foot sailboat, taught me early. He gave me an optimist. Not far from our home in Spain, I spent the best part of my youth on that boat. My dad taught me about the knots, the wind, and the water, some of which must’ve gotten into my blood.
I keep my yacht in Westchester, and the family loves to take it out on the weekends. Even when we’re not on the water, I can spend a full day cleaning it from bow to stern. I think of it as my escape, my place to be with family and enjoy the gifts of the Earth. After spending a week cooped up in the office helping clients, I like to share my time with my family and feel the freedom of open water. After all, it’s in my blood.
