As a young man Patrick used to hear great tales of the ocean from an even greater man. This man was his grandfather, Lieutenant Commander Arthur Hopkins of the U.S. Navy. In his final tour at sea, he was Admiral Byrd's personal physician aboard the USS Philippine Sea on an expedition to Antartica.

The stories about this trip, from equator crossings, freezing temperatures and the unimaginable sea states, made Patrick's imagination run wild. This inspired Patrick to join the United States Coast Guard after high school.

In the USCG, Patrick was responsible for the safe navigation of a 225' Coast Guard cutter, as well as performing search and rescue missions, maintaining aids to navigation and security patrols in New York Harbor. With every moment, the passion he felt born with continued to grow.

With over 100,000 miles at sea, Patrick left the USCG after 4 years to work in the marine industry. He started with bottom painting, scraping barnacles, washing and waxing boats and became an assistant yard manager and eventually head of sales and brokerage. It was a long path fueled by a passion for the water and more importantly people. 

Patrick's understanding of the yacht industry comes from holding almost every position in it and facilitating deals where his devotion to his clients is second to none.
