Yacht Broker Vince Krivanek
Vince was born and raised in Oak Park, IL a western suburb of Chicago and graduated from the prestigious Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. After four years of computer related sales with national accounts in the city, at age 25 he moved his young family to Breckenridge, Colorado. In the mountains, he managed a Holiday Inn before owning and managing several restaurants. During the spring thaw of 1975 he journeyed to the Virgin Islands for a sailing charter and that lead to ten years of sailing and sometimes living in the USVI aboard his sailboat, CALYPSO.
Sharing time between the mountains and the Caribbean set the stage for his career in the yachting industry. In 1985 he had seen enough snow for any lifetime and moved to San Diego, California to begin his career in yachting. Vince currently lives in San Diego with his wife Cindy and nineteen year daughter Olivia.
After twenty two years of learning the ropes in yacht sales with one of the worlds prestigious international brokerage firms, the opportunity to team up with good friend John DeCaro, and open on office for All Ocean Yachts in San Diego was too good to pass up. Integrity and loyalty to the company and his clients are his trademark. Vince is a California Yacht and Ship broker, a licensed Florida yacht salesman, and a long standing member of the CYBA and FYBA. He has traveled extensively to shipyards in Italy, Germany, and Holland and has completed a new build 95 INACE explorer yacht in Fortaleza, Brazil. Vince brings a strong working relationship with all the major shipyards in the western United States and British Columbia.
When not working, Vince enjoys spending time with his wife Cindy, daughter Olivia and their border collie Misty. Vince enjoys golf, skiing, and boating whenever time allows. His favorite vacation is a week or so on the beach at Bay St. Jean on St. Barts.
