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."
