Leanne was born and raised in the Los Angles Area and moved to San Diego to attend Point Loma Nazarene College. After college “Boating Happened!!!” Leanne fell into a job at Harbor Sailboats where she spent 12 years managing a charter fleet of mostly Beneteau sailboats ranging in size from 22- 50’. Leanne obtained her ASA Bareboat certification and founded the W.O.W. “Women On the Water” program, designed to train in boat handling and instilling confidence in female boaters.
Leanne has been in the marine industry since 1994 and has experience in yacht sales, maintenance and management. She has been boating for over 22 years, raced extensively, cruised up and down the West coast as well as the BVI’s, La Paz, Tahitian Islands, St Maartin and the Bahamas. She joined the CUBAR rally in 2009 and logged over 1100 miles on a Selene Trawler with her husband and crew. She is enjoying all aspects of yacht sales, especially the life-long friendships she has made along the way. The Beneteau brand has been in her life since the day she stepped aboard her first boat. She is knowledgeable regarding Beneteau, Catalina, Hunter as well as Grand Banks, Navigator, Offshore, Nordhavn and notably Selene Ocean Trawlers where she was the brand manager for nine years.
In her free time you can find her on the water aboard her new Beneteau Gran Turismo 40′, Law & Disorder, spending time with her husband (and Captain) Steve or walking Sunset Cliffs with their crazy dog Daisy. Besides boating she loves golfing, cooking, reading and traveling.
Leanne is best known for her prompt and timely communication, follow up and, most of all, after sale relationships. She is never more then a phone call away from helping clients and friends alike. She loves details and enjoys working hard to resolve issues. This is one reason she has a high percentage of repeat clientele. Leanne believes that buying or selling a boat should be fun and she is always finding ways to laugh.
Leanne is active in the maritime community, a member of CYBA and helps lead the San Diego Yachting Professionals organization. Leanne & Steve are active members of the San Diego Yacht Club.
