Meet the Faces Behind Ocean Getaways

Trish Cronan, President, and Captain Brad Lavigne, Director, are the founders of Ocean Getaways. As a husband/wife team, they both have been key players in the international yacht charter industry since 1980. Sailing is in their DNA, having started out as captain and chef and then as yacht charter brokers since 1984.

In Trish’s words, “We are consummate lovers of the ocean, avid sailors, and our hearts and souls have been nurtured by the unparalleled beauty of the world's oceans since we first discovered the Caribbean Sea in the late 1970s. The lure of sailing on a yacht in azure waters with gentle breezes is like a siren’s call to us.” This passion and zest are the underpinnings of Ocean Getaways’ relationships with its clients.

What You Can Count On Us For as your Yacht Charter Broker

We listen to you carefully, respond quickly, think creatively, plan with precision, and smile often. We love what we do and can’t wait to share the truly unique wonders of yachting with you.

Lady Liberty Launched our Success

Our founders, Brad Lavigne and Trish Cronan, got their start in the yacht charter industry working as captain and chef on charter yachts in New England and the Caribbean in the early 1980s. Their time on yachts convinced them that the world’s best vacation secret had to transcend the pages of sailing magazines and be introduced to the mainstream luxury traveler. Hence, their yacht charter company was born with the intention of promoting through travel agents.

We’ve been in the yacht charter business for decades and pride ourselves on offering simply the best service in the industry, no holds barred. We have always gone above and beyond the call of duty, and this time would be no different. Even if that entailed rummaging through a dumpster full of stinky rubbish in the middle of the night in search of a guest’s diamond necklace that had gone AWOL.

Jim Raycroft is the man behind the lens for most of the fabulous marine photography that appears on this website. Jim has cruised the waters of some of the world’s most exotic destinations to capture these awe-inspiring shots. A professional marine, lifestyle and location photographer, Jim is one of the most experienced yachting photographers worldwide, respected in his field and with an extensive 25 year-strong portfolio under his belt.

Capturing amazing moments on yachts, cruise ships, resorts, and travel destinations, Jim Raycroft is often called upon to shoot luxury cars, properties, exotic food, stunning models and other glamorous subjects, all over the world. His work has featured in all of the major marine photography and yachting publications, including Showboats and Yachting International; and numerous internationally renowned lifestyle magazines, like National Geographic Traveler, Sail and the Washington Post Magazine.

Raycroft, a world-class yacht photographer, has an eye for detail and a talent that’s impossible to duplicate. He always manages to capture the essence of his subjects and instinctively uses just the right angles and lighting to make them come alive. The most outstanding marine photography you’ll come across on our website has been taken by Jim, who is also a superb travel writer. For us, he has covered some of the most remote yachting destinations, like Antarctica and Timor in Southeast Asia, and amazing cultural events like the carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean.

Jim runs his business - Raycroft Photography - out of studios in both Boston and Ft. Lauderdale.

We are honored to have him as a business colleague and friend and express deep gratitude to him for his support of our business.
