Swiftsure Yachts is excited to welcome new broker Molly Howe to the team. A native of Maine, Molly brings a diverse array of maritime experience to Swiftsure, from an extensive dinghy and keelboat racing background to working on tugboats throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Her love of sailing started at a young age, cruising with family on the Maine coast in the summer and the British Virgin Islands in the winter. Little did she know that the ocean would become a part of her life and future career goals.
A graduate of Maine Maritime Academy and a member of their sailing team, Molly holds a degree in Vessel Operations and Technology and a license as a 100 ton master, 500 ton mate with a Towing endorsement and Auxiliary Sail endorsement.
Molly moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2015 with her husband. They own and race a Tasar and Melges 24, and live-aboard a Farr 50.
One of Molly’s greatest strengths when working with clients is that she takes great interest in knowing the mechanical and operational side of all boats. Her versatile knowledge of vessels both sail and power driven uniquely positions her to help find yachts that fit the exact criteria and needs of Swiftsure customers.
About joining Swiftsure, Molly says, “I am having a great time learning a new set of skills on the water and helping people find boats they love and will hopefully use often. The best boat you can own is one you use all the time!”
Swiftsure Yachts’ partner Ryan Helling had this to say about Molly’s addition, “We’re very excited to have Molly as a part of the team. She brings a fresh perspective and strong maritime skill set. She’s a great addition to our already diverse team.”
