Bernie Luttmer, President and founder of Swans Marina and Swans Yacht Sales, is very pleased to announce that Colin Andrews has joined the team.
Andrews is a respected and widely recognized sailor and marine industry professional with roots in the Toronto sailing scene since childhood. A yacht broker since 2003, prior marine industry involvement includes sailmaking, equipment distribution and boat building. A hiatus from the boating business in the 1980s – 90s featured interesting management roles in manufacturing and R&D. Ultimately, the siren call of the marine business precipitated his return in 2003.
A member of Ashbridge’s Bay YC since 1997, he grew up at National Yacht Club and actively raced at several Toronto area clubs over the years. These days he and spouse Barb enjoy club cruising on their C&C, although he maintains an active racing program.
With the Swans team, Andrews will continue as a new and used yacht broker. He is known as the go-to guy for the racing community and has a large and growing cruising clientele.
Swans is launching a special new project on which Andrews will assume the front line role. In the early stage of implementation now, the multi award-winning Catalina 275 Sport will anchor a yacht clubs and sailing schools growth program. Watch the Swans website for the rollout.
