CYP Charter Fleet Manager, Kaisa Pace brought a lifetime of experience in the yachting industry to the Churchill Yacht Partners Charter Fleet Management Division when she joined the company in 2014. Born in the San Francisco Bay area, Kaisa has been an avid sailor since the age of 10. As a young girl, she spent two years cruising onboard a 38′ sailboat from California to the Caribbean. Her travels took her to Mexico, Costa Rica, through the Panama Canal and on to the San Blas Islands, Colombia, Venezuela, and finally, throughout the entire Caribbean.
Her voyages fueled her desire to pursue a career in travel and yachting, which led her to becoming a licensed Captain and Sailing Instructor in her early twenties. Since, Kaisa has immersed herself in all aspects of the yachting industry, including charter brokerage and fleet management, captain, and sailing instructor, chief stewardess, crew placement agent, and skipper/whale research assistant. She has successfully combined her love of all things on and in the water and travel into many challenging and rewarding career opportunities.
As a charter fleet manager in the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, Kaisa worked with both yacht owners and charter guests to ensure quality vacations. She spent multiple seasons in the Bahamas and South Pacific skippering and assisting research for The Center for Cetacean Research and Conservation, studying Humpback and Beaked Whales. When she finally settled down on land, Kaisa used her onboard experience to place crew on many notable charter and private yachts, which finally led to her position in charter management. With a varied fleet ranging in size from 80-200 foot vessels, Kaisa handles charters from the Pacific North West to the Mediterranean and all the legalities and intricate details that differ with the cruising areas.
Before joining CYP, Kaisa worked with both large and small charter management operations in Ft. Lauderdale, FL where she was always eager to put her thorough understanding of vessel operations and international travel to good use. Kaisa draws from her years of onboard and land-based background to provide clients with the ultimate charter experience. In her spare time, she enjoys her family and spending time between her homes in Fort Lauderdale, the Bahamas and New Mexico.
