Luxury Yacht Charter Broker

Having graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Marine Affairs, she spent the next 5 years working her way up the ranks on board yachts around the Bahamas, East and West Coast, Alaska and South America. She flourished as a deckhand, excelled as a Bosun and ultimately came ashore with a Captain’s license ready for her next opportunity.

Those years crewing on yachts have given Hadley first hand experience of what makes a great charter, and she enthusiastically brings her knowledge to the retail charter side of the industry. Additionally, her travels around the world have given her a curiosity to continue to explore and even maybe add to her language skills which currently include Swahili.

Now permanently back on dry land, Hadley has happily returned to her hometown of Narragansett in RI. She works closely with CharterWorld’s experienced Retail Brokerage team creating unforgettable yacht charter vacations for her clients.
