Fluenta Marine Services Inc

The desired end product ... peacefully at anchor in a beautiful exotic location.

We have had our great family sailing adventure and we now enjoy helping others, regardless of the size of the desired adventure, to achieve their own goals.   To do this, Fluenta Marine Services Inc was established to provide the following services:

  • Yacht Brokerage and new boat sales through Yacht Sales West,
  • Sail Training for individuals on their boats or through support to Sailing Schools,
  • Maintenance, Consulting, 'Owner's Representative' and Project Management to prepare boats and owners for extended cruising or passage making, and
  • Vessel Deliveries;
Max's background as a professional engineer in the aerospace industry includes extensive work in project and programme management. This, coupled with his experience teaching sailing and then taking his family on a seven year adventure around the Pacific, provides a relatively unique perspective on the challenges and requirements facing new boat owners.

A summary of Max's qualifications and experience are listed below:
  • Extensive engineering management experience including technical airworthiness authority for a fleet of maritime helicopters.  Former PEng designation.
  • Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB) and a member of the BC Yacht Broker's Association (BCYBA) and the International Yacht Broker's Association (IYBA)
  • CRYA Yachtmaster Offshore Instructor and Sail Canada Advanced Cruising Instructor,
  • RYA Yachtmaster Ocean/Master of Yachts 200 GT, 
  • MCA Approved Engine Course and extensive hands-on maintenance experience,
  • Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCMSAR) 'Advanced Crew' on a 28' Titan 500 HP Fast Response Craft in challenging Pacific North West waters.  Graduate of the renowned Coast Guard RHIOT course off the west coast of Vancouver Island.
  • Background in formal risk management and considerable commercial and military sea survival, first responder and safety training, and
  • Not including time on ships, 54,000 + nm of experience in a very wide variety of yachts sailing in the UK, the Caribbean, on both coasts of North America (from the Aleutians to Mexico on the west coast and from St Pierre Miquelon to Massachusetts and Bermuda on the east coast) and more recently in the South Pacific and Micronesia.


If you are interested in learning more about our travels, we have documented our adventures at the main page of this blog.  We have also done various presentations on our voyage, with the most recent being at the Vancouver Boat Show where we offered three family seminars , co-presented with Mahina Expeditions in Annapolis and Anacortes, and Elizabeth provided the Keynote address for Women's Day.  In our spare time, we have also written a few articles.  Recent examples of articles that we have had published are as follows:
We hope our experience from both our professional lives and our sailing adventures can allow us to help you achieve your own dreams.  Please contact us at FluentaMarine@gmail.com to see how we could assist.

We are also available to do presentations to groups such as this one to the Bluewater Cruising Association
