Colin Andrews has been immersed in sailing and the world of boats since the age of 3 days when his parents put him aboard the boat and went cruising.
His passion for racing took him to the coasts of Canada and the USA, the Caribbean and elsewhere on boats large and small, typically as a helmsman and sail trimmer. He has owned several boats, primarily racers, but the last two boats have been dedicated more to cruising on Lake Ontario. Colin grew up at National Yacht Club and in the mid-90s moved to Ashbridge’s Bay YC where he and his spouse are very active members.
Colin has been successful in almost all aspects of boating; building Contessa 26 and 32 as summer jobs, sail making in both production and later as sales and service manager; wholesale distribution with a national organization, mast building and rigging, adult sailing instruction and, in the 21st century, yacht sales.
During a break from the boating business in the late ‘80s – 90s, Colin drove a successful turnaround for an office furniture manufacturer and was instrumental in opening the North American market for a small European R&D company with technology for destroying chemical weapons and other hazardous wastes.
In 2002 the boating business beckoned again and Colin has found success in serving the dreams and desires of hundreds of boaters, whether new to the sport or very experienced and whether looking for a new or a used boat. In 2019 Colin added yacht chartering to his portfolio as a natural complement to boat sales.
