Michael Haines

Sport Fleet Captain


USCG 200 ton
MCA OOW < 3000gt

Capt. Michael Haines sails as Captain aboard M/Y Mystique and other Miami-based vessels in the fleet. Michael was born in New Jersey but is now happy to call South Florida his home. He has travelled over 100,000 nm in the yachting industry including over 20,000 nm of passage planning experience. Michael has cruised the US Atlantic & Pacific coasts, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Alaska, the Great Lakes, the Chesapeake, Mexico & the Bahamas. With all of his cruising experience, Michael considers the Bahamas, specifically the Exumas, to be the best yachting location he has yet to find. It was his love of travel that first drew Michael to the yachting industry. Prior to working on yachts, Michael worked as a system designer and manufacturer's representative for several commercial pump companies in the New York metropolitan area. Michael is happiest on the water, however, and when he is not at the helm he can be found enjoying other hobbies including reading, bike riding, and tennis.

Working the last five years on large charter yachts has provided Michael with a perspective of world-class standards that he brings to every position he holds. He is excited to be a part of Fleet Miami's tradition of excellence and to continue to provide Miami with the premier yachting experience that clients have come to expect.
