Marian Walker brings to United Yacht Sales Charter Division her vast travel knowledge and love of the marine environment to serve as United's in-house Charter Manager. Born and raised in Northern California on a ranch, she began her yachting career off the Southern California coast of Newport Beach and Dana Point, California. Having a Marine Science Degree from Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, CA and being a PADI certified diver, she honed her skills to open an underwater diving service in Dana Point Harbor and became the only female in her industry to do so. She has cruised the waters of Southern California, Baja California, the Sea of Cortez, Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula, Bahamas, Panama, the Galapagos, the Caribbean, and the waters of Southern Spain. Traveling is my backbone and the yachting industry has been my career for the past 40+ years. Charter clients are my #1 priority and putting them on the perfect yacht for that "fun-in-the-sun" vacation is what I strive to achieve to have them come back every year for a new adventure in different destinations of the world.
Marian has spent the past 16 years of her yachting career managing the charter fleet for a Palm Beach, FL yachting company and will bring her vast knowledge of chartering to United Yacht Sales Charter Division. Having begun her yachting career in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, in 1994, she joined Allied Marine Group Super Yacht Division and became the brokerage assistant for over 10 years.
She is a member of the International Yacht Broker's Association (IYBA) and is a committee member for IYBA's Charter Professional's Committee panel and remains very active in all aspects of the yachting community and year-round events which conducts educational and destination seminars each year as well as monthly Charter Open House's at Bahia Mar.
Our "United Team" is looking forward to meeting the needs of our charter clients and assisting in selecting the perfect yacht for the "charter of their dreams". We will make that dream come true.
