Dan The Man

Dan The Man

I began my career in the yachting industry by default in 1973 when my husband, Daniel Webster, introduced me to the joy of sailing. In my 37 years of marriage to Dan, we have owned 2 sailing yachts of our own and countless small power vessels, cruising extensively on them between Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. In 1980, I also co-captained with Dan professionally for a 10-year period on both power and sailing yachts. During this time, one of my major accomplishments was that I held a 100-Ton, United States Coast Guard Masters license. This was 1980 and a time when there were very few accomplished female captains. Additionally, a trans-Atlantic sail to the Mediterranean was an experience that will always remain with me. Today, Dan is still a professional USCG licensed yachtsman and yacht captain. He is also the Vice President of SWC, Inc.

Between 1980-1987 Dan and I lived in the Caribbean, introducing charter guests to the many wonders of a crewed yacht charter vacation. Life was great fun and we loved our lifestyle immensely. In early 1988, we decided that it was time to settle down, somewhere in the heart of a true yachting community. As a “grassroots entrepreneur” and coming from an old seafaring family where I am a fifth generation Florida pioneer, I could not imagine living anywhere else. Although we were originally from north Florida, Dan and I returned from the islands and settled into Ft. Lauderdale, the Yachting Capital of America. We soon began to call it home and we resided there for 16 years.

In September of 1989, I turned in my stripes and stopped working alongside Dan to form Shannon Webster Charters, Inc.  After successfully operating SWC, Inc solo for 3-1/2 years, I made a gentleman’s agreement with a large Yacht Charter & Management firm to become their independent Retail Charter Director, a position I held for over a decade until the company sold in late 2001. I immediately reopened my doors at SWC, Inc for business in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and began to operate independently once again. In 2005, after 16 years in South Florida, Dan and I made the decision to move our main yacht charter operations for SWC, Inc & Daniel Webster Marine Services, Inc. to Flagler Beach, FL, where we now reside permanently.

My lifelong passion for traveling continues to seduce me, even after settling ashore. To this day, it is not unlike me to travel halfway around the world just to look at a yacht that is available for charter in an unknown venue. I love to share this knowledge and experiences with my clients.

I also have a passion for beautiful places and take photography whenever I travel. Many of the photographs that you will find on my website were taken “on location” by me. I hope that you enjoy your journey, wherever that it may take you. I would consider it a personal honor to share my charter knowledge, information and expertise with you and I hope that you will consider the use of our services here at SWC, Inc.

Please take a moment to read the testimonials from some of my other satisfied repeat clients. I am proud to say that over 95% of the bookings here at SWC, Inc are from client repeat business and their personal referrals. I would love to hear from you so please feel free to contact me to assist you in arranging your next crewed yacht charter.

Happy Trails,

Shannon P.Webster
