About Captain Denny & Charter Sailing Unlimited
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Dennis Dori. My interest in sailing started when I bought my first 25' sailboat way back in the early 70's. This followed the end of my aspiring auto racing career when my car owner unfortunately felt I was over the hill at the ripe old age of 32!
My first experience chartering in the Caribbean goes back to 1972. I've since chartered yachts in the Caribbean more than 25 times, accompanied by friends and family. After a few charters I began to realize that every time I introduced someone new to chartering, they enjoyed it so much they went back again... either with or without me.
In 1992, after qualifying for a US Coast Guard Masters License, I started up my own charter boat business in Chicago on Lake Michigan. The first thing I had to do was get my yacht LAKE STREET, a 43 ft. Doug Peterson racing sailboat, approved by the Coast Guard to carry 20 passengers. Once that was done I was open for business, specializing in private and corporate sailing charters. In the seven years I operated LAKE STREET I entertained more than 10,000 guests.
In 1994 I launch my charter yacht brokerage firm, Charter Sailing Unlimited. By 1996, I met the qualifications of the Charter Yacht Broker's Association (CYBA). As a member of this prestigious group, I'm required to attend at least two charter yacht shows a year, inspecting more than 100 yachts along with updating my knowledge of the crews. In addition, I must also subscribe to CYBA's strict code of ethics and run Charter Sailing Unlimited according to their professional guidelines.
Thanks to the Internet, my charter yacht brokerage business expanded to the point I decided to retired my LAKE STREET charter operation to devote my time exclusively to booking charter yacht vacation cruises in the Caribbean. Until recently I've focused solely on booking charter yachts in the Caribbean due to my extensive familiarity with the yachts and crews located there. It's now my goal to expand Charter Sailing Unlimited's range of operations to include the luxury yacht market in the Mediterranean.
In closing I want to thank you for dropping by my home on the web. I truly appreciate your interest and look forward to the opportunity of helping you select a yacht from the finest in fully crewed charter yachts or bareboats available.
