I’m Robbie Robinson, founder of Signature Yachts and I started sailing in El Toro’s as well as fishing with my family in Hawaii at age five. I have since enjoyed owning a succession of racing and cruising sailboats, a couple of powerboats and now enjoy remote Inside Passage cruising aboard my Nordhavn 46 Trawler with my partner, Cesar Quirino, our family and friends.

I have been with Signature Yachts since returning from my 2 1/2 year sailing trip to the South Pacific in 2001. Sailing and boating has always been an important part of my life, beginning early in the Puget Sound area and offshore. I grew up aboard a Hallberg-Rassy 41 that we sailed for 2 years from Seattle to the Caribbean in the late 70s. […]
I’m a native of the Puget Sound area and have always found myself drawn to the boating lifestyle. It started with my family’s first boat, a 21′ closed deck runabout. I learned a lot from that first boat…like how fast a boat will fill with water if you forget the plug, and why its a good idea to stay away from oyster bed walls at low tide! Since that first family runabout I have found myself [...]

My lifelong sailing dream began over 35 years ago aboard a 95′ schooner in the Hawaiian Islands. It was a three day adventure that would forever change my life. Soon after that, I purchased my first boat, a San Juan 21, which I sailed for the next couple of years exploring the San Juans and Gulf Islands. Since then I have owned a Cal 25 and a Young Sun 35′ Cutter that I cruised and lived [...]
