Darren not only loves the boating lifestyle, he lives it! Purchasing his first boat at a young age, Darren learned the ropes – from sailing to maintaining. Well into his third year with Specialty Yachts, Darren is a BCYBA member Yacht Broker and an Apprentice Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB), a distinguished designation that is earned by those who exemplify a high standard of professional excellence. His curiosity and zest for life have also led him on backpacking treks to other parts of the world and into some very adventurous situations. Darren’s work has evolved around his passion for the outdoors. Before joining Specialty Yachts, Darren was the manager of a large leading outdoor retailer where he worked for five years and a caretaker for the Vancouver Parks Board. Darren’s passion for the outdoors extends to his relationships with others – friends, colleagues, children and those less fortunate. Darren spends regular time each week coaching children’s soccer through the Italian Canadian Sports Federation and when he can, volunteering for non-profit organizations.
