Captain Paul Hetzel
Captain Paul has had the boating bug for his whole life. As a boy he never passed up an opportunity to be on the water; fishing, sailing, or kayaking. After graduating college with a business degree, Paul became a successful entrepreneur. His success helped him finance his boating addiction, enabling him to buy more than 20 boats for his personal use over the years. He has owned just about every kind of boat including offshore fishing boats, cabin cruisers, express boats, trawlers, performance ribs, sail boats, and even cat boats. He has cruised the entire east coast from Florida Keys and the Bahamas to Bar Harbor, Maine and also maintains his U.S.C.G. Master 50 Ton Near Coastal Captain’s License.
Paul is always available and eager to talk about anything boats and to share his extensive knowledge of boating with both new and experienced boaters. He strives to help customers sell their boat or find the “right boat” and then help them feel fully comfortable on the details of operation of their purchase.
Paul and Carllene live in their home on Spa creek in Annapolis. During his free time you can usually find Paul and Carllene cruising on their 46’ Chesapeake, a custom dead-rise named “Coastal Star”.
