Frank De Varona’s passion for boating began as a child in Puerto Rico, where he worked on boats as a mean to fulfill his passion. He left Puerto Rico to attend post secondary education in New England, where he obtained a Masters Degree in Science from Western New England College. He continued to foster a love affair with the sea by becoming a Dive Master for the Search and Rescue Team, and eventually attaining 100-ton Master’s license. After captaining several charter and private vessels in Boston Harbor, family commitments brought his family to South Florida, where he began his career as a Yacht Broker.
An active board member of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association, FYBA, he promotes membership in Association and oversees the Miami Boat Show Kickoff Party to benefit Shake A Leg, Miami; a non-profit organization that offers individuals with physical and social limitations the ability to enjoy the many amenities our waters have to offer.
On his time off he enjoys boating and fishing.
