Walking the Plank: Charles Dana

charles_danaCharlie Dana has spent his personal and professional lives in yachting. A former commodore of the New York Yacht Club, Dana was a syndicate member of five America’s Cup campaigns between 1977 and 2003. In 1998, Dana and partners purchased Newport Shipyard, which had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, preventing its development as condominiums. Since then, the Rhode Island yard has improved and expanded to become one of the finest marine facilities in the world.
