About Us

Years of captaining, running, and maintaining boats of all types and sizes, the Helm Life was started by a former mega-yacht captain and her yacht-engineer husband. Between the two of them, they could fill a Great Lake with the salt water dumped out of their boots. Their long-term goal is to get more people excited to spend time on the water and be passionate about protecting our oceans so we can all continue to enjoy a water lifestyle.
