Harbour Master

Capt. Benny Waldo, harbour master at Oyster Bay Yacht ClubMeet the new Harbourmaster of Oyster Bay Yacht Club’s Marina, Benny Waldo.

Captain Waldo was born and raised in the coastal area of Northeast Florida, where fishing and surfing were his growing up passions. Being of extensive length, (6’6″) playing basketball first for Hilliard High School and later for the private Mountain State University in West Virginia where he studied marketing, was an obvious natural.

After college however it was back to the blue yonder, after all a water baby in the mountains can only last for so long. Key West became the location of choice, loaded with transient yachts, so Benny set out to get experience in boat deliveries. After two years he decided that if the water was going to be his life’s passion, he might as well do it right and get licensed. In 2006 he moved to Jupiter, Florida to work at a private marina, while spending evenings doing sunset cruises and his days off were filled with Charter Fishing.

After earning his 50 Ton USCG Master License he headed back home to Northeast Florida to raise a family with his wife Britni. They have a daughter Taihlulah and son Presley. Benny loves the beauty of Oyster Bay Yacht Club and is excited to work with a great team.
