Your hosts Valeria and Steve Young have been boating together for 14 years. Working side by side, combining their talents through a variety of projects, this duo has built a solid foundation giving them unique skills to bestow the most pleasurable private yacht retreat for you.

Steve’s boating infatuation first emerged at the ripe young age of seven with a dink and 3hp Johnson outboard. Then at the age of eleven, his father promised him the boat of his dreams, provided he pitched a no hitter at the little league game. The young Stevie, wanting to have the boat of his dreams, made his father proud and pitched that no hitter. Little did Stevie know that the 13' Boston Whaler was already in the parking lot of the little league field!  Since then, the Happy Sea Man has owned over 20 boats. Growing up on the waters in Long Island’s Great South Bay, boating became a natural part of his life.

Stephen also has a successful and diverse career in the music industry. Through the years, he has worn the many hats of proprietor of commercial recording studios, music producer, audio engineer, talent agent, concert promoter, composer and musician. Visit Yacht Recording Studio to see his operations.

Raised in New York and traveling the world as an entertainer, Valeria has refined her interests in culture, languages, history and philosophy. With a natural flair for entertaining, she enjoys regularly creating delicious worldly cuisines. Athletic from a young age, health and fitness has always been an fundamental part of Valeria’s life. Valeria is a certified personal trainer, yoga and pilates instructor whom has helped hundreds of people in their pursuit of wellness.

Steve managed to capture Valeria’s heart on a first date boating adventure in the south shores of Long Island.  From that initiation, Valeria grew sea legs right away and found herself enchanting friends and family amid their personal water crafts.
