Kim Kavin is a national award-winning journalist who has been writing about yachts for two decades. She grew up driving a ski boat and sailing a Hobie Sunfish at her grandfather’s lake house in New Jersey, and today, she has cruised and chartered in and around more than 50 countries and islands, aboard everything from sailboats, catamarans and trawlers to America’s Cup sailing yachts and luxury superyachts. When she’s not on the water or writing about it, Kim can often be found hiking western New Jersey’s wooded park trails amid the white-tailed deer with her two adopted shelter mutts.
