Company founder Kristen DiMartino launched The World of Yachting in 2004 with one simple goal: To use today’s technology to make finding crew, uniforms and more – easy and cost effective, while still providing excellent service. Kristen enjoys staying hands on and involved in every aspect of her business from site development to the patterns and designs of her uniform line.
After receiving a Bachelor degree from the University of Florida, Kristen’s yachting career began in 1999. For over 8 years, Kristen served on board motor yachts ranging from 90 – 150 feet. She started as stewardess and quickly moved to chief stewardess, working with both private and charter guests worldwide. During her yachting career, she had the opportunity of learning all aspects of running of the vessel from exterior, to cooking for guests, to all book keeping and accounting.
Kristen loves what she does and in looking forward, she is excited for continued excellence in this global yachting industry.
