Born and raised in Miami, FL, Greg Newell, the owner of Captain Greg Inc., has resided on the Florida waters for over 45 years. By the age of 22 he was working abroad and captaining in exotic locales including, but not limited to South and Central America, The Caribbean, Italy, Hawaii, and Bermuda. His dedication to working for local marinas and charter companies in his teens exposed him to the skills he needed to receive his Captains license at only 17 years of age.
Greg’s 29 years of experience, has allowed him to work with some of the finest custom-built yachts, not only as a captain, but as an instrumental part of the building process. Over the years, he has become seasoned in hands-on mechanical and technical work, as well as, refits on Sportfishing yachts. His knowledge and accolades in the industry has warranted his consults on over 20 boats from purchases to maintenance. Greg’s fleet in recent years has included Merritt, Whiticar, Mark Willis, and Weaver boats to name a few. He currently captains a custom-built 60-foot Weaver with a 100-ton license.
Greg has added "broker" to his list of skills by teaming up with United Yacht Sales, to provide an easy and honest buying and selling experience. He looks forward to working with United Yacht Sales as he embarks on the next phase of his career - helping people enjoy the water the way he has for over 45 years.
