Yacht management company opens in R.I.

David Anderson has formed a new yacht management company in Rhode Island that will specialize in the management of yachts to 60 feet.

Aquidneck Yacht Management also is available to advise and prepare a yacht for long-term cruising, safety at sea or operational instruction. Anderson can represent owners and work with specialized vendors, boatyards and sailmakers to bring a boat up to "Bristol" condition, he said.

"With an owner's time so valuable and the management of a yacht complex and challenging, I can help prepare a yacht for the sailing and boating season," Anderson said. "Also I can help make an owner feel more confident with the initial operation and boat ownership."

Anderson has more than 45 years of experience in the marine industry and has worked for major companies.
