Homeport - Marina Del Rey, California
Captain Mark Abel here, welcome aboard! My sea time spans over four decades, starting back at the ripe
age of six months and continues to this day as a U.S. Coast Guard Master, with towing endorsement. It is my pleasure
to assist you with your yachting needs, from deliveries
to sea trials, charters to personal instruction and
brokerage services too! Whatever your situation calls for, there is a solution and I am here to help.
My background includes over 20 years in the film industry, the last ten with a major motion picture studio in Hollywood (Paramount Pictures). I have worked with many high profile people and operate with absolute confidentiality as well.
I am currently charter captain of the 'Odessey',
a 58 foot Hatteras, out of Marina Del Rey, providing
a variety of services, which include harbor and sunset cruises, corporate events/seminars, Catalina Island trips,
film shoots, seasonal whale watching & etc.
When time allows, you will find me at Catalina Island diving, fishing and relaxing on my long range trawler,
'The Marisa A'.
Also, I'm Staff Commodore - Marina Venice Yacht Club and member I.O.B.G. (Blue Gavel)
Call and we can discuss your nautical needs today!

Transport, Training or Per Diem Captain for Powerboats.
I have been boating in New York/New Jersey/Conneticut waterways for over 25 years. I have served as a USCG licensed Master Captain on vessels up to 65 feet. I am a non-smoking, married father of two little mermaids! I have experience managing yachts, transported many boats and have served as a private captain. I have trained captains one on one on docking, safety and navigation. I am very passionate about boating and have a great respect for the sea. SAFETY is very important to me. Call me to discuss the voyage, transport or training needed.
I look forward to speaking with you.
