Cindy Brown, founder, is multi-talented with a very diverse background.
A Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Maryland Institute, College of Art led to a graphic artist career at CBS Records in New York, producing album cover art for superstars such as Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Meat Loaf, and Miles Davis. Years later while living in Los Angeles she worked for CBS Television and Warner Bros. Records.
In 1996, switching focus, and seeking to professionally connect her love of travel and her passion for boating, she joined the Camper & Nicholson’s representative office in New York. The following year branching out on her own, she incorporated Ultra Marine Yacht Charters, Ltd. a bespoke agency with a mission of delivering highly personalized service.
In 2004, she joined forces with Nigel Burgess and established their New York City location. While she enjoyed working within a large company format, she missed the individualized charter services that she had been able to provide with her own company.
In 2008 she resumed operations at the helm of Ultra Marine Yacht Charters.
Passionate about the plight of animal overpopulation, she volunteered with the ASPCA and acquired a license as a veterinary nurse in New York State.
She is an active member of MYBA (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association), AYCA (American Yacht Charter Association), FYBA (Florida Yacht Brokers Association) and a past member of CYBA (Charter Yacht Broker’s Association).
Ultra Marine Yacht Charters offers first class charter services and charter brokerage with extensive knowledge of the market and yachts available to charter.
