Captain Dylan is a young man that has pursued many avenues and aspired to be many things. He spent time in the commercial diving industry, traveling to Alaska and Louisiana. He spent time in the cruise industry working for Holland America in the Yukon Territory and Alaska. He then decided to return to Seattle with the intention of rejoining the restaurant industry to become a bartender, go to college, and live on a boat. Dylan had no idea how he would fall in love with the Puget Sound live aboard lifestyle, and his first boat. “Candére” is a 28’ long Thomley cabin cruiser. She was built in Auburn, Washington in 1972. When Dylan purchased her in 2011, she was fully functional, but old and tired. After many breakdowns and misadventures he decided that he needed a new boat, or needed to restore Candére to better than new condition. With a rudimentary base of knowledge in woodworking, mechanics, and electrical, as well as an uncanny drive and work ethic, Dylan embarked on a journey that would utilize and enhance these skills and instincts that have come to define him in a mere 26 years. Now a skilled craftsman, artist, mixologist, and Coast Guard licensed Captain, Dylan, his father, and a few of his closest friends are excited to share the beauty and joy that is Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
