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. For many years we’ve also enjoyed cruising with Rumor, our ever curious Siamese who thought it was her boat and we were her crew. She’s passed away recently but will always be missed. There may be a new crew member like her again soon!
I love sailing (kayaking, hiking and racing) up the spectacular British Columbia coast and mixing it up with our team while sailing in the Caribbean. I’ve sailed from Alaska to Mexico, Chesapeake to the Caribbean and the Mediterranean in addition to my naval service aboard the aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower throughout the world. I had a blast coaching junior sailing and running high school sailing camps sailing with 15 students aboard for week long trips up the British Columbia Coast as well as Chesapeake and the Bahamas. I have the education, practical boat building and cruising experience needed to help you create a new cruising yacht that is suitable to meet your desires. While still a university student and Nordic Yachts Intern, I founded Performance Yachts, representing Catalina, Nordic, Island Packet and Island Gypsy Yachts in Bellingham and Portland, Oregon. After selling that dealership 25 years ago I moved to Seattle to create Signature Yachts. We’ve since become Seattle’s premier new sailing yacht dealership by representing Amel Cruising Yachts, Beneteau Oceanis, First Series and Fountaine Pajot Catamarans. Wow! We’ve been busy!
