Otto was an essential addition to our staff in 2002, bringing 30 years of boating and marine experience with him. He started his career in Marina del Rey with Chris Craft Pacific from 1970 through 1976. Looking for another challenge, he came to Anacapa Marine Services in 1977 as Assistant General Manager. Ventura Harbor Boatyard is proud to have acquired such a customer service oriented person. As Service Manager he will ensure vessel repairs are effectively accomplished by determining, organizing and monitoring work in process. He will prepare estimates and condition found reports for customers and coordinate same with various craft shops. Otto has excellent communication skills and enjoys coordinating every aspect of a customer’s needs from haul to launch.

When Otto’s not working, he enjoys sailing and crewing with friends and customers on Wet Wednesday races. His power boat experience in his youth was a cruise of Europe with his father on a Dutch built Neptune ’38.
