Charlie Carricarte was born in Cuba and arrived in Coral Gables before his first birthday in 1949. 

Charlie graduated from the University of Miami with a bachelor's in marketing. After spending two years as a United States Army Officer, he began his professional career directing an independent insurance agency in Miami.

Not too long after, his love for boats and travel drove him to begin his career in the marine industry. During this time he has taken part in many events, exhibitions and courses involving industry leaders such as Bertram, Tiara, Hatteras and the Ferretti Group brands.

Charlie began his yachting career in the 1980s with the world famous Bertram Yacht Company based in South Florida. For eleven years he traveled the world as Bertram’s director of international sales. He then spent nine years with the Tiara Yacht Company in the same capacity.

During his 20+ years of international experience, Charlie has been fortunate to visit many countries and attend the majority of the major international marine exhibitions, including the Genoa International Boat Show, which he participated in for 18 consecutive years.

He has accomplished many firsts and has received many performance awards for yacht sales including the coveted Hatteras Yachts Circle of Excellence.

In 2001, Charlie transitioned to the retail side of the marine industry and moved to MarineMax at their Coconut Grove location. After 5 years at MarineMax, he opened Biscayne Yacht Sales. He then joined the prestigious yacht brokerage firm of Denison Yacht Sales.

Charlie’s specialty is sportfish and foreign and domestic cruising boats. He is an active member of Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA), and he is fluent in English and Spanish and speaks and reads Italian.
