Born and raised in Gloucester, MA, Captain Phil has had a life long love affair for the ocean. His father owned and operated commercial fishing vessels in Gloucester for fifty years. At the early age of thirteen Phil started commercial fishing during summer vacations with his father. When he graduated from high school he was Captain of his dad's boats a 73 foot 28 foot beam and a draft of 13.5 feet commercial dragger. He has also earned a degree in commercial art and fine art from Vesper George School of Art. He soon felt the call of the sea and returned to commercial fishing and the captain of his dad's second boat. His experiences in commercial fishing span nineteen years and took him from Portland, ME to Martha's Vineyard, MA and over 200 miles off shore.

             As the commercial fishing industry became more and more challenged with government regulations and fishing stocks dwindled, Phil decided to put his creative art background to work and opened a small business as a graphic designer. He adds to his achievements a talent as a marine artist. His works have been bought and displayed in the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass. and throughout the United States. However Captain Phil has always maintained his passion for the ocean and became captain of one of Gloucester's yachts that then became the catalyst for his present business, North Star Yacht Deliveries, Inc.. He has been Captain of three yachts and traveled the east coast on trips and deliveries from down east Maine to Key West, Florida. In total he has spent forty years on the water and in the boating community. Phil is professional, intelligent, mature and experienced. 

           Phil is a non smoker and non drinker and you can count on him being fully capable at all times when taking charge of your boat. He looks forward to being of assistance to you and/or your customers.
