Glen C. Allen

Fleet Captain


CAPTAIN GLEN ALLEN HAS BEEN SAILING SINCE EARLY CHILDHOOD, CREWING ON HIS FAMILY'S SAILBOAT WITH HIS FATHER ON THE MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST

He won the Sunfish Class Junior Sailing Championship as a teenager and did his first off-shore sailing race from Biloxi, Mississippi to Cozumel, Mexico when he was 13 years old and still loves a good sailing match anytime, anywhere.

His career began as a racing sailor in Biloxi, Mississippi, followed by 4 years of selling sailboats as well as working as a sailing instructor. He then enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard for a 4-year tour and was based in Puerto Rico serving as quartermaster. During his time on board, he logged many hours at the helm of an 82' USCG cutter doing surveillance trips, drug interdiction and search and rescue efforts. His last year in the Coast Guard was spent in Houston, Texas, as a Ship Traffic Operator on the Houston Ship Channel.

Captain Glen became a yacht Captain in 1987 starting on a 65' motorsailer. He moved from sailing yachts to motor yachts in 1998. He has been a build captain for a 95' Sparkman & Stephens sloop in New York, a 220' Lurssen Motor Yacht in Germany, and a 147' Feadship Motor Yacht in Holland as well as project manager for numerous shipyard projects around the country and in Europe. Since 2011, he has been Fleet Captain for 7 yachts which frequent a number of destinations from Miami, Florida, Washington, DC, New York City, the Hamptons, Bahamas, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. Currently, he is managing director of Fleet Miami with 9 yachts in the fleet.

Captain Glen is an avid reader who also loves outdoor sports, watching NASCAR racing, swimming, sailing, fishing, scuba diving, travel, meteorology, tennis, teaching seamanship, mentoring young crew members as they advance in their yachting careers and spending time with family and friends.
