Hello, I am Captain Robert Meeker and hold a USCG Merchant Mariner Master of Steam, Motor and Auxiliary Sail License. My experience spans over 35 years operating all kinds of vessels. The diverse range includes my antique Garwood speedboat, cabin cruisers, sailing yachts and the opportunity to be at the helm of the sailing schooner “America”. It all started when I crossed the Atlantic as a child aboard the Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.

I have had a passion for vintage boats since I was young, learning to operate them, fix them and appreciate them.

I was born and raised in Offenburg, Germany. Being bilingual and bicultural, I spent most of my boating years on the great lakes, the shores of New England and now here in beautiful Charleston.

I Look forward to serving you on our vessels and making your on-the-water experience enjoyable, memorable and safe.
