Andrew was born in New London, Connecticut and grew up living aboard his parents’ boat on the waters in and around the Eastern Long Island Sound. A true “hawsepiper,” Andrew’s journey to the wheelhouse is a veritable testament to his dedication and passion for all things maritime. After graduating New Canaan High School, Andrew took a job as deckhand aboard a 180' Feadship where he would spend the next six years mastering all aspects of yachting under the watchful eye of his mentor and now close friend Captain Jim Holman, a distinguished veteran in the industry. Captain Holman took Andrew under his wing and afforded him every opportunity to learn from his lifelong experience on the sea. In the spring of 2017, Andrew’s training came to fruition and he took the final steps to completing the remaining Coast Guard licensure. It didn’t take long for industry insiders to take notice. Andrew now sits proudly at the helm of Aquasition, a vessel on which he has over two years of experience. Captain Andrew is delighted to have you aboard M/V Aquasition and hopes that you have a most memorable experience.
