Sean Cassidy

CYC was founded by Sean Cassidy as a full-service yacht management company providing support to all phases of yacht operation and ownership. 
The son of a tall ship captain, Sean first went to sea at the age of 16 on a square rigged sailing ship in the Mediterranean, eventually becoming a tall ship captain himself at the age of 30.  Sean spent a total of 30 years on board sail and motor yachts as well as small passenger ships working his way from deckhand through the ranks serving in virtually every position possible on board with the final 20 years in command of vessels as large as 282ft.  He has crossed the Atlantic on a 57ft sailing yacht, a 361ft square rigger and all sizes of motor yacht many times over. 
Eventually coming ashore to take over the yacht management division of IYC, Sean spent 5 years as Director of Yacht Management before moving on to become Head of Yacht Services Miami for Burgess. 
Now Sean’s wealth of experience serving on board yachts and leading some of the top yacht companies in the industry is the backbone of Cassidy Yacht Consulting and the services we provide.
