Nick Crang has been involved in the yacht charter industry for twenty years, from sail training to luxury crewed charter. A keen sailor from a young age, summer seasons spent teaching sailing lead to the door of Sunsail.

Prior to joining the YachtWorld.com team in 2007, Nick also spent time as a yacht broker in the UK. Nick has cruised extensively in many of the most popular yacht charter destinations worldwide, although these days he enjoys seeking out new anchorages closer to home with his wife and two daughters. His all time favourite charter destination is the Seychelles.
