Captain Douglas Meier – Former U.S. Coast Guard
Doug’s love affair with the sea started at age fifteen when he joined the Naval Sea cadet corp. and attended Navy boot camp. This led him to later enroll in the U.S. Coast Guard. Based out of Miami he became involved with law enforcement and SAR operations. After serving the country for five years, Doug moved in the private yacht sector. For the next two decades, Doug commanded various power and sailing charter yachts throughout the Caribbean, Bahamas, Gulf of Mexico, and domestic waters from Key West to New England. Doug was honored by winning five Antigua Charter Yacht show awards and four Boat International/US classic yacht awards.
